Harry Potter miniatures game
« on: September 18, 2018, 01:28:19 AM »
Hello

Here is my first Harry Potter model, the gencon exclusive Luna Lovegood.



I also wrote a tutorial on how I did it which you can find here.

And if all goes well I'll be painting the entire collection over the next year.

That's a very nice paint job. What did you think of the actual miniature in terms of quality of material and finish?

Okay by KM standards. But it's a single piece model and has a robust pose so I wasn't expecting much difficulty preparing or handling the model but then with KM you can never be too sure what you'll receive.

Thanks for the reply. I've got some coming from the pre order so I was curious!

Absolutely lovely paintjob. Great detail - even managed eye colour there.

Here's hoping some sets go to the breakers soon, so I can get my mitts on the one or two I wanted...

The children are 35mm with the adults around 40mm.

Here is the first set I've painted. I'm really enjoying painting these and will most likely collect a set for myself.






I also made a little video https://youtu.be/ccsvhBDpbto

Thanks.

Very nice work. I've just started reading Harry Potter to the kids (my first time reading it too). Looking forward to more of your work.

Very nice work indeed. Superb in fact.

Iíll admit Iím curious as to the level of interest in gaming Harry Potter - beyond card games and cluedo/monopoly skins. Iíd have thought it perfect for a Star Wars minis style prepaint range, the rules could probably work too. This range looks too expensive and too much hard work for an average, younger gamer. Then again, is that the target of this game (which has been panned in most reviews Iíve read).

Iíve painted up a few stand in figures in 28mm just to see if it can be done.
