Painted Minis

One thing I have known from the start, is that I wanted to paint my entire set of Mice & Mystics figures as soon as I actually got my copy of the game. Having painted miniatures since I was a teenager, it would be a shame for me to pass up the once-in-a-lifetime chance to paint the figures for my own game. Figures that were sculpted by my pal Chad Hoverter!

So as soon as I arrived back home after Gencon, I set about getting this painting project up and running. Some people expressed interest in a tutorial, so I decided to take photos along the way, hoping that others may find it helpful. The information I present in this painting guide is intended for those who might not have ever painted miniatures, or are minimally experienced.

They all look great. I am scared to try painting because I don't want to mess it up. Maybe someday I'll get a cool looking mini for a random game just to learn on.

Would the general tips from this guide apply for Dungeon Run figures, too? I don't k ow if the games use similar material for the minis or if that matters when painting.

You should be fine painting the Dungeon Run miniatures the same way.

Adam, the DR minis are made of a rubbery plastic, while the M&M minis are of a more rigid plastic. That is the main difference.
