Thunderstone Quest by AEG is the third in a line of deck builder style games with the Thunderstone name. I never played the first two, but each iteration got a little more love from the fans. This version certainly knocks it out of the park and my friend and I played through a good portion of the included "quests" (which were basically recommended card to play with). The miniatures it comes with aren't strictly necessary, but they do look better then colored pieces of wood. Because it is a board game, I wanted to give everyone a separate colored base to make them stand out a little more and give them a bit more personality.
The warrior's color scheme is inspired by Iron Man. I was able to borrow a metallic red paint (Retro Red Steel) and I like how he turned out for the most part.
For the wizard, I wanted to use my MSP SAMPLE , which is the pinkish/purplish color of her...cloak (?).
I gave the dwarven barbarian a white beard because, frankly, nothing is scarier than an old barbarian. He sorta fell into the brown color because I painted the fairy druid right before him and wanted a darker color.
The fairy druid didn't quite turn out how I'd like, but it still works. There is a great version of him on Board Game Geek that had an autumn color scheme so I tried to emulate that.
The explorer was the last figure I did because he wasn't really that interesting. I do like how his bags and pipes came out.
I like how the rogue came out the best. I decided early on that she's have purple hair and a purple color scheme. One thing that annoyed me about her was the fact that I used several different types of black on her outfit, but it all just looks the same when all is said and done. Still, I love how she turned out.
Original model, from board game Wander: Cult of Barnacle Bay, by Panda Cult Games.
Customer requested a trident in the hand and a base. Couldn't find a freekkkin trident anywhere except some European company that couldn't get it here until after the deadline, so I had to mod a spear.

C&C or things to do better next time would be much appreciated.
