Unless you meant why is the miniature literally white?

Because it's only been undercoated so far. I haven't had a chance to apply more layers yet...

I meant in the art... surely he's Persian.

No, for as I said...

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

Right, here is the "Prince" so far:

Image

Basecoated and drybrushed. The next step is dipping in Quickshade, which I'm always nervous about because of the smell and the mess.

I might have to pick up a pack of cheap, throw-away brushes to assist with that task, in which case I might leave it till next month, and concentrate on painting the other miniatures first.

The prince looks great so far - and yes, he does look like Luke Skywalker :D

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

My wife and children have very kindly made space for me in the house to have my own dedicated "game room" -- so I've spent the last few days moving everything into it. I've also managed to get a bit more painting done.

I've also found a better spot, with more light, to take photographs of my work so far.

Here's a couple more pictures of the "kid" (who will later become Prince if he wins the game):

Image

Image

Ideally, I'd paint his eyes, but I just cannot work at that level of detail - my hands are too clumsy.


And this is the latest miniature, an animated skeleton warrior, who the kid has to fight in the third level of the video game:

Image

Image

While I was painting his base, some of the gravel came loose, leaving a hole. I found a Games Workshop skull lying about, so I added that into the hole...

Image

This skeleton is the only miniature in the set I bought not sculpted by Dennis Mize in 1990. I think it's a much more recent sculpt by the owner of Reaper Miniatures. However, it's also the only skeleton with a scimitar I could find, and to be honest it fits quite well with the others I chose for this project.

Here is a picture of the kid fighting the skeleton in the game:

Image

These miniatures are currently in a "pre-Quickshade" state -- next month, once all the others are painted, I will do a mass dipping session and post up final pictures when they're ready.

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

This is a great project and you're getting good results. Keep having fun and don't fret over the other stuff. I look forward to seeing what you do for game scenery. :)

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

The next miniature to be painted is one of Jaffar's palace guards.

These guys patrol the dungeon of the Sultan's palace, swords at the ready, waiting to cut down any intruders. All of them have different coloured clothing.

Here is the one I call the "orange guard":

Image

Now, I have four different "guard" miniatures, all of which are 1990 Ral Partha sculpts by Dennis Mize (same as my "Prince" figure).

Here is the first -- he is officially called a "Corsair of the Eastern Sea", but I thought he'd do nicely as the "orange guard":

Image

Image

As you can see, he's ditched his white hat and yellow tabard, but kept the orange pantaloons and purple sash.


Once again, this is a pre-Quickshade paint job.

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

Neat looking miniature. I love the mustache. Looking forward to what he looks like after your quickshading. Looks pretty solid already.
