Yesterday Bigfella and I got together for a little minis painting session. I had some peasants from Foundry I wanted to finish, they were base coated and inked, and just needed the final highlighting and detail pass. I spent the majority of my time on them, but at the end I decided to try my hand at some 10mm figures.
For those who don’t know, that’s about 1/3 the size of the normal miniatures I usually paint. They’re extremely tiny. Being much more an RPG player than a wargame player, I’ve never had much exposure to scales other than 28mm, which is what most fantasy RPG minis are. I’ve always been curious though, and then I discovered Germy’s 10mm Dungeon Pack (available from Pendraken), I decided why not and ordered it. It comes with 5 heros, 30 monsters, a bunch of furniture and modular dungeon pieces. I have no idea what I’ll use for, but all that at £40 (about $60 US), I couldn’t resist.
I’m now officially hooked on 10mm. I painted all 5 heroes to completion in less than 2 hours. Between not having much detail (how could they at that size?) and so much less area to paint, it’s super easy to churn these guys out. I’ve now got all the monsters based and primed as well, and half the dungeon sections primed black. I’m curious to see how long it will take me to paint the entire collection.
I’ll post more details on my process for painting these guys, and some other general mini painting stuff, but for now, please enjoy the pictures of my 5 10mm heroes. I think they came out pretty well.
