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.

      One of the first figures I pulled out of the Bones5 core set was this guy. Had fun doing him in non traditional colors. 
       

       
      The flash made him look a little brighter than it really is.

      Youngest Vixen's Boyfriend has a friend who owns the Boardgame Dark Souls.
      He asked if I would paint the minis for him.
      So here's the first batch.
      The main characters and the core troops.
       
      I went for Tabletop Quality.

      Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity.  Rawr!  She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit.  But, oh, how that cloak flies!  And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown!

       
      I did the back in a cooler purple:

      I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun.
       
      It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians.
      Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects.
       
      I will happily include any monster I think will fit.
      A Tarrasque will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God.
       
      I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your)  fun to create.
       
      EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story.
                This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures.
       
      EDIT: And now it will also include Undead!
       
      ***********
       
      Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now.
      The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees.
      Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance!
       
      He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained.
      Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it.
      With this he had convinced the men to follow him.
      Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it.
       
      They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief.
      He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons.
      Nothing would stop them!
       
      Finally they reached a clearance.
      The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again.
      They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick.
       
      Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing.
      Birds flew away, trees where falling!
       
      Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground.
      A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared.
      One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it.
       
      Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle.
