Hellboy the Boardgame: Painted miniatures

By | 20th November 2019

This boardgame is tremendous fun, fully recommend it for any fans of Hellboy or boardgames. But the models all come grey, which leaves a lot to be desired, especially as after the Kickstarter there was a lot of models. I do want to point out this isn’t a Mantic Games sponsored post, sadly they didn’t give me anything for this.


The Goodies

There is a marvelous collection of heroes in the game and I have painted up about half of them now. Most of the rest are Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) agents, with fairly similar models.

Everyone gets a Hellboy!

Four of the figures for Hellboy himself and there are at least two others around. There is a Luchador and one I have already done, Santa Hellboy.

The Baddies

Frogmen things. They come in a variety of gross forms and make for pretty good bad guys. I used a lot of very muted tones for what are one step above swamp creatures.

The Uglies

There is always a worse badguy, in this case it is these guys. At least the others are monsters, these are humans who chose to be monsters.

As a big time fan of boardgames I always recommend painting up the miniatures, it adds so much to the game.

    Nice work. That’s a fair amount of dudes to get painted. They look like good sculpts, but it’s too bad all the villains are mono-pose.

      Yeah the villians were a bit rough to paint due to that. Been a long while since I was doing so many like that.
