SHOWCASE: Mansions of Madness
Mansions of Madness is an interesting looking boardgame that looks like a combination of Clue and Lovecraft horror (no idea for sure because I haven't actually played it). I painted two copies of this game. The client wanted me to play with different finishes and glossy effects to make the monsters look slimely. I didn't want to just add a gloss coat on the overall paint job since that wouldn't look realistic and would detract from the actual work. Instead I blended gloss and matte finished traditionally like you would with regular colors except in this case the gloss is in the recesses and the matte finish for the highlights. Some of the monsters even have transparent colors on the wings to make them stand out from the rest of the figure.
