Here are the first two heroes from Mice and Mystics, Collin (in cape) and Nez. Again, the fun factor was high while painting these. There were no difficult details to paint, and the sculptor kept all the elements well-defined and easy to pick out. Nez had some mould lines on his head that I forgot to deal with, but that doesn't bother me much, if at all; these are not contest minis, these are little place keepers for a board game.
Collin was pretty straight forward. Red cape, brown fur (with white underbelly), leather belting. After the cape was finished I washed it with some brown ink.
Originally, the shaft to Nez's hammer was bent, so I cut it out and replaced it with some brass rod. I was worried about converting a mini in a hard-to-find game, but it all worked out. (Being focused on the hammer work is probably why I missed the mould lines. Oh well- no biggie.)
One of the decisions I was thinking about was whether to paint the heroes based on the character cards from the game, or use my own schemes. I decided on the cards, and it's kind of nice, for once, leaving the color choice out of my hands; it's just one less thing to think about.
