Do you paint your miniatures for games like Memoir 44?

Postby 50th » Thu Apr 07, 2011 5:39 pm

I paint my miniatures for games like Battletech (Classic of course!) But Memoir 44, I consider to be a boardgame, hence no paint. The Miniatures for a miniature game are usually metal like pewter. They used to be lead, but since kids eat lead... (I guess we had better sense than that growing up). Here again is my favorite painted mini for Battletech. (Re-sized)

FoW and other WW II ones most def, but as I am into RPG's as well, some of those figs come painted already, and some do not. Like the D & D Raven Loft board game and their follow up, I think around a 100 fo the plastic kind to paint up, when the games show up that is...

Cheers, yes to terrain as well when needed!! LOL

Ok, not up on my RPG's, what is WoC? I have seen on their user pages and BGG that many people paint their Memoir 44 miniatures, which I consider a board game and do not paint. In all truth, I did paint the grey sand bags tan (for desert) and the green wire silver, but that's it!

I have thought of doing some touch up painting on some of my A&A minis but so far I haven't.

50th it should have been WotC or Wizards of the Coast the company that is now in charge of Dungeons and Dragons.

Depends on the game for me.

Flames of War and Command decision, definitely. battlestar Galactica and Stargate SG-1, definitely. Crockodile Games WARGODS OF AEGYPTUS, definitely.

If they can be improved, prepaintedI'm for it.

BTW....Memoir '44....yup, boardgame, but I personally also consider the miniatures fair game if they can be omproved to a players tastes. I seem to remember Brumbar44 over at the od days of Wonder Forum did some spectacular stuff.

found out that the new figures for the battletech game won't be painted so most definitely will be painting them

I saw that too. But since my citytech second edition had plastic miniatures, and I didn't paint them, I probably wouldn't paint these either. Below is from a game at a convention. The dark gray minis are the plastic ones from cititech 2nd ed.
