Everyone seems to be giving in to the temptation and using miniatures. Personally I still don’t see the attraction but I’ll give it a go. Unfortunately my entire model collection these days consists of Space Marines, Imperial Guard and various small bands of models for smaller skirmishes. I have absolutely no fantasy based figures anymore except for a bunch of undead.
So I guess I’ll be doing a future based undead/zombie attack scenario for the test run then.
(Ignore the pink cast… My light tent was giving off some strange colours today and I coudn’t seem to correct them in post)
Now if I’m going to do this I’m going to want to do it right so your experiences will be valuable. So with that in mind I have a few questions.
Does it really matter if figures are only half painted or even completely unpainted?
Does this work well with paper based maps with the scenery drawn on or do you need model scenery as well to get the feeling right?
Just how far do you go if you do use scenery?
I get the feeling I’m not really going to get into it unless I go OTT on the scenery which will limit my model based encounters to a select few predesigned and built battles. Seems to defeat the purpose of using miniatures in the first place though.
