I wanted to paint the Forgotten King himself as the last miniature of the box, but painting the scratched cloaks of the Grobbit Executioners, I really wanted to test out the same technique on the King’s cloak… and with only Boris and the Creeps left, I felt it was ok to fast forward to the King. Another thing I was keen on trying was his face. I know on the card itself he is white faced, but given the sculpt, I wanted to try and emulate the colours of an owl. I was using a Google image search as inspiration,…

The Evil Medieval This monster gang (or should I say these as there effectively are two) took significantly longer to paint than the Cabbage Gang. And but the Frog Knights and the Billmen took longer to paint than the heroes due to their level of details. All in all I am happy with the result, but to be honest, I like the cabbage monsters better so they were more fun to paint. Bramle Knight Spawning Points The Bad-ass Bunnies The Grobbit Executioners were fun to paint. I tried to make their cloaks scratchy inspired by an article in White Dwarf,…

The Cabbage Army Love how fast this gang was to paint: Prime green, drybrush the shit of of them and add a bit of colour here and there to distinguish elites. Next gang from Fogotten King won’t be that fast though. Old-Growth Hollow Spawning Points The Sprouts I do love the idea of the little annoying Lil Sprout transforming into the big menace that is the King Sprout. Mooks Note the Sprouts and the Mooks have a slightly blue’er tint to their overall green colour than the Wisp and Turnip Heads in order to make them seem related. Wisps I…

I left the Huntress to last as I was not sure what colours to paint her. In the end I decided to paint her based on a My Little Pony my sister had when she was a kid (well.. she may still have it). It was a white pony with wings and purple mane. I left her top half rather tanned as I imagine she rarely wears much more that she is currently wearing so her skin would be exposed to sun a lot.

Well… overall I think Super Dungeon Explore minis are relatively fast to paint, but not this lady. I had problems with her cloak and only after getting that done did I realise how many potions she is carrying around! Anyway she is done and I am happy with her.

I’ve mentioned this before, but one of the things I love about the Super Dungeon Explore Miniatures is that they are relatively easy and fast to paint. The Questing Knight is a prime example of that. I am happy with the end result, but it feels like I’ve cheated as he didn’t take that long to paint… it reminds me of when I painted Pervical for Kingdom Death: Monster, but who says it should take ages to paint miniatures?

The pet wonders were super fun to paint. I love how fast it is to paint these Chibi models compared to high detailed minis normally found for wargames. Don’t get me wrong: I love painting high-detailed minis too, but these minis are a nice break.   Madam Hilde, Miss G. Snorts and The Colonel I actually painted Madam Hilde’s skin twice as my partner didn’t feel she was pink enough in the first instance… and she was right. I also realised after I painted her, that she’s a she so I added some eyeliner to make her a tad more feminine….

While Princess Emerald was the first “chibi” style miniature I’ve ever painted and I did find it challenging as she was very different to paint that the high-quality, detailed wargaming miniatures I normally paint, I did find find painting the Royal Warden a whole lot easier as I was building on what I have learned. I’ve also realised that painting Super Dungeon Explore miniatures is a lot faster due to the lower quantity of details, which I am starting to find very appealing as I can get to a finished result faster… which is needed given the Forgotten King expansion…

My first ever attempt at painting a “Chibi” style miniature. Challenging with the lower quality miniature combined with the large flat areas. Eyes where a challenge too. Thanks to Stuart Culshaw on the Super Dungeon Explore UK Facebook group for pointing me towards Aella13’s youtube videos. It led me to several great tutorials listed here: How to Paint Miniatures – Chibi Eyes – Aella13 Miniature Painting – Chibi Anime Eyes 1.0 For Beginners – DizzyAngelDemon How to Paint Arcadia Quest Chibi Eyes (aka How to Fix a Messy Paint Job) – Arleebean on a side note, love the comment at the end of Arleebean’s…
