Tabletop Gaming – Bloodborne Painting Guides

Another guide for Tabletop Gaming magazine, this time covering the heroes and bosses from Bloodborne the board game.

This guide can be found in Issue 56.

It’s always challenging tackling something derived from other forms of entertainment. I’ve never played the videogame these models were based off which is nothing new. It happened before with my guide for Horizen: Zero Dawn the board game, so I followed the same path I did for that. Lot’s of image searches and gameplay videos, focussing on the elements I would be painting, hopefully to get a look that a fan of the video game would recognise.

I’m a big fan of the Gothic aesthetic and the sculpts were over all great. The hunters each have a unique look but they suffer due to their size. They’re very small and as a result lose a lot of detail, with some elements blending into each other. The bosses are larger, which means you don’t see the same on them, other than Father Gascoigne, who stands around the same height as the hunters.

I didn’t have the space for the other enemies, but they are more like the bosses in quality, being quite large, crisp sculpts. It’s a shame that the player characters didn’t get a wee bit more to make them stand out.

Take a look at the finished models…

Back in the Saddle!

I’m finally back and ready to paint! It’s been a tough couple of years for everyone and I’m no exception. I’ve not been posting due to mental illness, general stress and a little bit of painting fatigue. I may write a bit more about that in the future. After a good amount of self care I’m feeling ready to jump back in the saddle and get some content out there.

I’m jumping straight back into guides for Marvel: Crisis Protocol. I took a bit of a break from this over the last few months, which is where the fatigue comes in. The Inhumans managed to form a painting block on me, and I just couldn’t find the inspiration to break it. This week I managed to break through that barrier…

You can find a guide for this pair here, alongside another new guide for Captain Marvel & Crossbones, with Crystal & Lockjaw not far behind.

I’ve also steadily been working away on articles for Tabletop Gaming magazine and I’ll be adding more information about these soon, but for now enjoy some pretty pictures from the guides…

I’d also like to say thank you to those who keep coming back for more and/or checked up while I was absent, and sorry to those whose comments I didn’t get back to.

Until next time, be excellent to each other!
