Got a bit of painting done this weekend, continuing my work on boardgame figures. The barkeep with shotgun comes from Zombicide: Undead or Alive, while the rat warriors come from Mice & Mystics. I was surprised by how well they fit together. This bodes well for Weird West games of the future!
I've been spraying these figures with a heavier layer of varnish than usual, under the thought that boardgame figures probably get handled more than wargame miniatures. That might explain why I've got a bit of reflection going on in the photo, the shiny sheen isn't as noticeable live.
Still got a little over half of the figures from the Mice & Mystics box to go. The Zombicide one contains so many figures that it isn't worth count yet!

I spent a good deal of the weekend painting up board game pieces. I must admit, I do find it a bit of a strain, as the details are much shallower than on the traditional metal miniatures that I have spent most of my life painting. That said, with a bit of work and will, I think I've managed some pretty good results.
First up, we have the wizard mouse for Mice & Mystics, with a little ladybug on his arm. Then we've got a couple of figures from Zombicide: Undead or Alive, which kickstarted last year and which I just received. Normally, I don't like backing big, expensive kickstarters, and I only backed this one at a minimum level, but I really wanted the figures to use for Deadlands and the like. If I end up liking that game, that's a bonus! So, we've got a high-style lady packing a pair of revolvers and a giant mutant zombie thing (only about 100 to go!).
