Mansions of madness - Jenny Barnes

Jenny Barnes “The perfect shoes for saving the world”…The first one of the investigator’s group and it’s a really nice little mini. I will be using “Wyrd” inserts for the base as it fits the theme really well. A pleasure to paint but preparation was a bit of a hassle. As I said when I was painting the bad guys, miniatures are cast in a rubbery type plastic which is not easy to work. On top of that some of the mould lines were horrendous, ruining a few details. Anyway, I did a quick Google search to get some ideas for painting. It seems that everybody painted it blue like it shows on the illustration from Arkham Horror but I went for the style of the model on the right (see artwork below). 
 Next up is Harvey Walters…

Jenny Barnes “Des chaussures faites pour sauver le monde”…Le premier modèle du groupe des enquêteurs c’est une très jolie mini. Je vais utiliser des socles de chez « Wyrd » pour toute la série vu qu’ils correspondent bien au style. Un plaisir à peindre mais pas à préparer car comme certains des monstres, le matériel utilisé pour tirer ces figurines est assez désagréable à manipuler. En plus de ça, il y avait des lignes de moule particulièrement irritantes. Bref, après une mini-recherche sur Google, il se trouve que la plupart ont peints cette mini en bleu comme sur l’illustration d’ Arkham Horror  mais j’ai préféré le style sur le modèle à droite sur la photo. 
A suivre, Harvey Walters…


  1. Very nice. I agree, some of the figures really suffer from bad mold lines which are incredibly fiddly to try to remove. Nonetheless, you've done a great job with these - looking forward to seeing Harvey...

  2. I like it how you give the game much more character by this painted miniature.

  3. She's pretty, bases are amazing.

  4. A very nice looking figure and what a pair.........of guns!
