After receiving my Arcadia Quest minis from Kickstarter last year, I picked out the models I liked best and painted them. I have to admit, that I did not like most of the character designs. From all the minis in the box I only painted four.
Some time ago we started playing Arcadia Quest and I had to pick 3 characters for my guild. I picked Sonja and Nibbles first, as I had already painted them (I tend to pick characters in a board game based on which character design I like and not how effective the characters are). Elysia and Chooloo were already taken by that time, so I had to pick another character. After some deliberation I choose Scarlet and I did not regret my decision.
So far Scarlet did not really shine in-game (Sonja is a beast and I tend to activate her a lot), but she had of course to be painted after I picked her for my guild. The model is fantastic and I really don’t know why I did not paint her last year with the other minis.
Tried something new with her dagger. After reading a lot about painting weapons in non-metal-metal I completely changed my so far rather simple approach and modified my color choice. Really happy with the result. Takes a lot more time than my old approach, but the result is far superior. Will apply this technique to all my models from now on.
