Excellent job! The 2D bases are nicely done. I've been pondering painting my R&B minis but not sure as they see a lot of game time. I'd worry about paint flaking off, especially when taking the crew bases on and off, although I did come across this style of paint job that could save wear and tear and you an still make out what type of game piece it is as the lower half is still the character color. Also I have 8 crews and most of the extra heroes and mercenaries, way too much painting if you count all my other minis!

I have been having these exact same worries.  I originally bought R&B to steal the minis for D&D use, but I finally got around to playing the game.  I was already planning on masking off the base rims to keep the original colors in tact and to avoid rub-off on the Heroes.  But the crew in particular get handled A LOT.  I was prepared to just cover them in matte spray to protect them and accept some wear as unavoidable.  But I'm also intimidated by all the painting.  Might paint up the Heroes nicely and then a nice version of each of the different crew sculpts, the rest of the crews/bosuns can get a simpler paint job of some kind just to color them up.
I also have quite the collection.  Missed out on the KS but have slowly been tracking down lots on ebay.  I Regret not getting these on KS as the re-sale prices are insane!

 

But I plan on painting 2D wooden decks on the bases.  Easier than trying to sculpt bases on hundreds of models.

Sweet! That is easily the best iteration I've seen of that demilich mini (and definitely better than when I tried it), so your work paid off.
Love the color transition on Acererak's tattered cerements from dull red to eldritch hydrogen pink.

Those cultists are always a delight. Look forward to their show-off post!

You know, since Wizkids apparently has the go-ahead to use official WotC artwork for their sculpts, and since they've done so many set-dressing pieces, it's a real surprise they haven't made a Great Green Devil Face sculpt. You know the one I mean! Seems like that's just leaving money on the table.
