Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate

No Comments

After having a very enjoyable time playing Betrayal at House on the Hill with some friends I decided to pick up a copy myself. Whilst I was looking up the game I discovered that there was a Dungeons and Dragons version of this game; Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate.

I had no choice, I had to get it!

When the box arrived I opened it and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the figures inside the box are very well detailed and molded, and at the same scale as general war-game figures with a 1 inch base (or close enough to pass). However the painting on these figures was, in my view, terrible. The half-orc and the drow had well-printed eyes, but apart from that the painting just completely undermined these beautifully sculpted figures.

Fresh out the box. Look at that poor Red Wizard of Thay’s face!

This post is unfortunately not a step-by-step on how I fixed these paint-jobs, as I painted these before I decided to record my painting process. This is more of a showcase of what I can do, given that my first two posts were all about inking, without substantial painting to the models.

Look at that Paladin’s armour shine!

I have almost finished painting these figures; I just have to complete the ranger (seen in green at the back of the second picture) but I will be more interested in posting up more extensive paint-jobs I do on the Rage of Demons figures I have, followed up by some Warhammer 40,000 and some figures from the Castle Ravenloft and Legend of Drizzt board games.
