I agreed to paint some miniatures over the Christmas break which our dm has made especially for our d&d game.
I was quite excited to sit and paint this evening but now… hmm… turns out the miniatures from Heroforge (which are awesome and personal as they can be customised) are shockingly bad for painting. I think it is down to them being 3D printed and that these were the lowest price option (which is still expensive for minis). The texture is all grainy and there is next to no chance to get fine details showing. I’m about to use a wash on one of them but I’m certain it’ll just clog up in the texture and make a mess of it.
These things may look better if I just give them to my kids to paint.
