Here is my interpretation of the chap I call "the red guard":

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

I wasn't quite happy with the colour of this guard's boots, nor the drybrushing on his pantaloons, so I re-worked them a bit:

Now he's ready for Quickshading, I think, though I'm beginning to wonder if I drybrushed his jacket too lightly. I might darken it a bit.

^A marked improvement! The brown is a better color for the boots. And his pants look better too.

They look great so far. And yes, the boots look better in brown.

Also, don't worry too much about not being able to paint the eyes - I'm sure the quickshade will help accentuate the eyes.

Here is the next guard, which I call "the yellow guard":

This is my favourite one so far, I must say.

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

It will be interesting to see how they all look when you hit them with the quickshade. A lot of neat miniatures and I'm looking forward to the final result.

I'm really loving this post. Brings back a bit of nostalgia and the adaptation with those minis is simply stunning! Keep up the good work!

Re: Advanced HeroQuest: Prince of Persia

Thanks, guys.

Well, I tried applying Quickshade Dip last night. It looked absolutely terrible and completely ruined the models. I thought I would have to give up the project entirely.

But then I dropped the miniatures into a jar of white spirit and the QS dissolved away in minutes, whereas the paint beneath seemed unscathed. I plan to fish them out of the jar tonight. Hopefully all the QS will be gone, and I can start again with a different plan.

I'm going to try washing instead!
