Paintworks for 'The Doom that came to Atlantic City" : The Great Cthulhu - (Cryptozoic Entertainment)

A few years ago I bought 'The Doom that came to Atlantic City', a light-hearted game of urban destruction set in the universe of H.P. Lovecraft. Basically it's Monopoly played by the wrong rules. It's not 'bad', but the game itself doesn't exactly rank in my top 10 :-). The playing pieces however are great, big (about 6-7cm/2,5inch) well detailed, plastic miniatures.  The box comes with eight Great Old Ones. Here's the first...the greatest of them all... Cthulhu.

The heroes from "DungeonQuest" (1987) - Games Workshop

I'm the proud owner of an original 1987 "DungeonQuest". I have the game 30 years in my possession and I never came to paint the miniatures. Now I did... after 30 year being blue, the Barbarian, Knight, Adventurer and Ranger finally got some color.


Ulv Grimhand, the Barbarian



Sir Rohan, the Knight



Volrik The Brave, Adventurer



El-Adoran, the Ranger

The survivors from This War of Mine (Awaken Realms)

This War of Mine - a very, very bleak and realistic surviving board game - comes with 12 miniatures, representing normal, everyday people who try to survive in a occupied war zone. I painted the miniatures very basic (they have not that much detail but are overall OK) in mostly dark tones and adding weathering powder (Vallejo pigments). The dog is a Reaper Bones miniature.

Firefly - The Game: Ships ready for the Verse (Gale Force Nine)

As a big fan of the Firefly series, I naturally got the board game. I'm happy to say the board game does the series justice: it's fun, has great artwork, great miniatures and the true Firefly spirit. That's why I thought the ships could use some color. Here are the 6 standard ships from the core game: 4 Fireflies (Serenity, Yun Qi, Bonnie Mae and Bonanza), a Tohoku-class cruiser and a Reaver ship.
