I kickstarted the Dark Souls Board Game and decided the minis would look better painted.
With all my paints sorted I dove straight in to the painting. I decided to experiment a bit with the base coat colours - most of the mainly silver characters I went with grey but black is a really great way to make sure you get a good coat over the whole model, and sometimes if you don’t spill paint all over the base it doesn’t even need that much of a touch up too!
To prime without painting half of my backyard I used the same block of wood with holes drilled in it as I used for the zombicide painting so I wouldn’t also be priming half of my backyard.
Ornstein and Smough were probably my favourite bosses in Dark Souls 1 so I wanted to do them justice and spent -ages- on their paint job. In the end I’m fairly happy with them, but I wish I left them to be one of the last so I could make the mistakes on the other models.
After doing the sentinels though I am considering removing this bright gold colour in favour of a silver-grey base with highlights of gold - like how I did these sentinel bows.
