Doom Commission?

A co-worker asked me if I'd paint some boardgames pieces for her. I said sure. So, the game is Doom, and I started with 4 sample pieces just to see if the style was what she was looking for.

First, prime and highlight for pre-shading.

Next, some airbrushed colors to get tone right, and some initial paint down.

Tightened up the colors, applied washes, final details, and 4 quick table-top-ready figures are out in a day. Quick and fun. If she likes them, I'll do the rest of the set.

'Til next time.


  1. I'm sure she'll love them. Only advice, is board gamers are rough on their minis. I'd be tempted to give them a coat of acrylic gloss, followed by a matte finish. That extra layer of gloss will protect them for a long time. I did this to a friend's Robo Rally robots I painted for him and they're still chip free.

    1. Allan, that's a really good point. Thanks for the reminder!!!
