Thus far I've been painting all my character miniatures in solid colors and my furniture in full color (using the classic HQ elements for inspiration). I have to decide what colors to use. Tempting to make it black rather than gray and throw in some colors for the jewels.


Cool, when I got my copy of the basegame again after all these years I also wanted to keep the figures in original colors. I guess its a stylechoice. But then Krautscientist here in the forum inspired me when I saw his painted set and then he helped me with some excellent painting advice in his threat. I was a total newbee at painting but with his help started painting my minis and it was really fun. Check out his threat of painted minis if you ever wanna paint yours, its super helpful. :)

With recent access to 3d Printing, I'm tempted to try a full painted set (as much work as it would be), while leaving my original classic set intact in its original shades.

Indeed! Here's a classic thread with many great size comparisons between Reaper figures and HQ classic figures.

A tip I've learned from doing these... glue the figure to the base FIRST then paint. I painted several of the bases and figures separately and then glued them, forgetting that this meant it was just secured to the base by a thin layer of acrylic paint, so a few detached (easily fixed, but still, in hindsight I would have done it the other way). Super glue is faster, but the plastic putty acrylic, while more expensive, has a more secure bond as well.
