Heroclix conversion repaint rebase 2 by MrVergee Heroclix conversion repaint rebase 2 by MrVergee
Lately I've been purchasing prepainted Heroclix and Mage Knight figurines to supplement my miniature collection. Since I use them for tabletop roleplay, I have to rebase them (using washers). I also do repaints where I deem them necessary, usually touching up some sloppy paint work, but sometimes giving the figurine a complete make-over. The figures then get dipped in Army Painter Quickshade (strong tone), which provides beautiful shading, but also seals in the (re)paint job. Finally I coat the minis in matt varnish, to get rid of the glossy shine of the dip and to seal the minis even more. The scenery in this set-up is by Dwarven Forge and Psomminiature. The figure on the left is the Horrorclix vampire enforcer, who needed little reworking. The one on the right comes from Mage Knight and was rather poorly painted. I touched him up and gave him white sleeves, to add some interest.

I wish they had minifigures like this for castlevania.
What kind of tabletops do you do mate?

You can get these figurines for very decent prices at several second-hand dealers online or on E-bay (starting at something like 15 cents per mini and there is already a large selection to choose from for prices up to 1 dollar). Prices are steep enough to make it worth buying them for me, even though I live in Europe and shipping costs and import taxes basically double the price on a purchase of about 100 minis. If you get some simple black bases (which you can buy in stacks) and rebase the minis - even without repainting them - you can quickly build a nice collection at a very affordable price, a lot cheaper than when buying the prepainted figures from the Dungeons & Dragons line or Pathfinder Battles.

We play Pathfinder. As you can tell from my many pictures, we're playing through (a modified version of) the 'Curse of the Crimson Throne' adventure path.
