Just thought I'd let people know that I have had the minis from the Frostmarch expansion painted by Steve Dean and have posted pictures of the results on Talisman Island.

Here's the Necromancer as a sample -

The rest of the gang can be seen at the site here - http://www.talismanisland.com/sd_painting_3.htm

You will see that I chose a rather cool mini to depict the Ice Queen from my NPC card which looks rather swish!

Very cool. I think overall, I'd have to go with the Ice Queen as my pick among the finished figurines.

The necromancer is the best of the four figures.

I like also the skull symbols on his clothes

I do like the Necromancer too, as the skull etc are freehanded on. I did not realise that they were not moulded on. Top marks to Steve from me!

I really like the sculpt and paintjob on the Ice Queen too, but as it is an unofficial NPC I thought I'd leave it from my choice!

Steve does take commissions, but in his own words from his site -

"I'm not very cheap, so if you're after an economical paint job please try elsewhere."

Have a look at his site and contact him if you are interested  -

http://www.sdean-forum.co.uk/

If you have a look through the forums at the site, you will find many other painters who might take a commission. They all have galleries so you can see what they have done.

I wish I could paint my Talisman miniatures. But I have plenty of other miniatures I have to paint first (board and tabletop games).

I was curious about painting my mini's.  I do paint lead/metal mini's, but have never attempted to paint plastic ones.

Will any primer work, or should I try find a specific one formulated for this specific type of plastic?

You can paint your plastic mini's the same way you paint your metal mini's. Just give them a undercoat of black or white.

Cheers
