BattleLore: First Paint Job

A few weeks ago I picked up the board game BattleLore. The game consists of hundreds of small, soft-plastic figures. Everything randing from human foot soldiers to goblins riding giant lizards. As I mentioned last year, I've been having this desire to try my hand at painting miniatures, and so this box full of little grey men seemed like a good place to start.

I picked up some acrylic paints from an art shop, grabbed the painting guide the BattleLore people put up, and sat down to see what I could do. These are the results:

I only painted four to start with. They took me longer then I expected, but since it's been close to 15 years since I last tried, that's not to surprising. I'm not blown away by my work, but I'm reasonably pleased with these as a first effort.

Edit: Oh, and I've got a Flickr account now.


That's awesome, Simon! I spent a good part of last winter painting figures for Shadows Over Camelot. Now I'm inspired to finish them.
