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. These minis can serve as nobles and just needed some finetuning. The figure on the left and right are obviously the same person, the Black King, but I definitely prefer the one on the right.
