Painting Highlights: Minsc and Manshoon

So here we are again!

This week, although my phone is broken, I was able to get some photos uploaded of my current progress on both Minsc and Manshoon.

Minsc and Boo

I got bored with seeing the crappy base unpainted and did what I feel is a decent flagstone street motif.

Additionally, you can see where I did touch ups and some detail work, particularly his armor and his weapon and his cloak by his collar.

As I said previously, I am not using the primer Gray for the gray areas on his armor, but instead using dungeon grey.

Here you can see where I finally painted Boo. I dry brushed his brown on him to get the effect of the original mini.

In addition to all this, I have not yet gotten brave enough to paint the purple face paint on him, nor have I even considered doing shading yet.

frankly, I’m going to get some guidance from a friend of mine before I do the shading so I can both do the shading on him as well as teach you all how to do the shading.

All in all, I think he’s coming along great.


I’ve made considerably less progress with this pain-in-my-backside miniature.

Here is where I’m at with him:

As you can see, I’ve started doing the gold lining of his robes and filled in green on the skulls.

As with Minsc, I’m going to get some guidance on how to do a better job shading before I even consider doing it to him either.

Well, that’s what I have for today! Stay tuned for next week when I should have a better idea of what Minsc and Manshoon will look like!

Looking ahead, what should I paint next? Leave a comment below to give me some ideas, as this quarantine has me going stir crazy!

Until next time, Dear Readers!
