My painted set of Castle Ravenloft Minis. I wasn't out to win any awards here, just get some color onto those nice little figures and make them more fun to play with.

I posted my Wrath of Ashardalon minis too - plus a bit more about the 'quick and dirty' technique I used:

Very nice job. I especially like the wraiths.
I'm so jealous. You did so much better than I could do. (I've tried painting minis but just don't have either the vision or hand-eye coordination to do it properly.) Yours look really nice and I wish WotC would sell painted minis just like those!

Thanks Marv - well I had fun doing them, but considering the time they took me to do, I don't suppose it would be cost effective for WotC to produce them for sale. The ones they used to do a few years ago were a pretty good quality for the price, I thought - but I guess it still wasn't worth their while.
I agree about the quality of the pre-painted minis that WotC used to sell. I wish they would have a couple of options -- not painted or pre-painted -- so that fans could get the maximum enjoyment out of the game.

Whether they are done by the company or the guy who bought the game, either way I think painted minis make the game a lot more fun, particularly for kids and newcomers. Painted minis just grab you more and make play more exciting.
