The Adventuring Party, an expansion for Martin Wallace's Wildlands. We (Osprey Games) published the core game towards the end of last year, and I've had my eye on some of the miniatures for a while - there's a few I'm keen to paint up, but this is the first one I've got to the table. As part of an office challenge, the Games team divvied up the figures from the expansion with each of us receiving one to paint. I think I'm the first to finish, so I win in that regard, even if the other paintjobs are better!
The miniatures come with an integral base, so the first thing I did was slice that away and re-mount it on a metal base. With board game plastic (or resin, for that matter), the weight does bother me - I like a bit more heft. The figures are also supplied with a black wash to pick out details - this is easily painted over, however, so I didn't bother stripping it or anything.
At this point, I took leave of my senses and gave it a black undercoat. I hate black undercoats, and find it hard to make out the details I'm trying to paint. I've been using a brown undercoat for a while now - I have no idea why I reverted for this one model. It's not been THAT long since I painted anything...
All told, I'm really quite happy with how it all came out!
