So I have to admit I'm rather late to the HQ bandwagon I'm afraid, never played or owned it as a wee one.
A few months ago my Wife brought me home a gift she found in her friends shed, 2 tool boxes of random crap minis (Warhammer Quest plastics & the first plastic LotR Orcs), a 1994 paint set & a complete(ish) copy untouched copy of Heroquest.
After taking it down to my local club and having a few games I managed to get a group together for some semi-reg games in and of top of that I picked up the HQ expansion Return of the Witch King for a rather nice price (Minus the Box which is sad).
Anyway as we all know I hate playing with unpainted minis..
So I needed to get everything painted and as quickly as possible. So starting with the Undead I managed to find a way to get each one finished from start to end in 20mins.
AP Skeleton Bone washed with AP Strong Tone, re-highlighted the base colour.
AP Gunmetal, again washed with AP Strong Tone, once dry Vallajo Special Effects Dry Rust on the Scythe.
Simple and effective, at least for a Boardgame anyway.
Even works for Mummys and Zombies too!
Thanks for looking my Minions of Old
