Painting Dark Souls Board Games Miniatures by Glitterwolf


Recommended Posts

So, youngest vixen's boyfriend mentioned my hobby when hanging with his friends.

They like to play board games etc,.

One of his friends asked if I would paint the minis for his Board Game - Dark Souls for him.

 

So...I agreed.

He will let me know what he'd like for the bigger monsters.

As for the characters and minions, he let me decide ( oh boy, shall I paint a rainbow skeleton?)

 

Anyway, here it goes.

Patiently waiting on the story to go along with the miniatures 🙂

 

 

This will only be minis, I'm painting them for a friend of Vixen's Boyfriend and I actually had to look this up.

Not familiar with the game, the only thing I know about it is that dying is a big part of the game

 

My stories will be told in my own projects, so to speak.

Looking nice so far, how is the quality of the plastic with these miniatures?

 

I love the Dark Souls universe, but I have been burnt with these miniature games in the past, where the miniatures have looked sublime on the store page but when they arrived they were made out of a cheap rubbery plastic with poorly moulded details, and were generally of a very poor quality.

I must say I'm pleasantly surprised by the minis.

It's a reasonably hard plastic, I would say something a little sturdier than the original white Bones a little more flexible than the later Grey Bones.

I washed them, then applied Vallejo Israeli Sands Primer.

 

They take paint well, I have had no problems so far.

No stickyness, no rubbing off.

I will seal afterwards of course.

 

So, all in all, much better than I expected from boardgame minis.

That is awesome, thanks for the response.  These minis are on my wishlist.
