The Mindthief

The Mindthief – from Gloomhaven

It’s the Mindthief turn! I love Gloomhaven miniatures!! This is a commission, but still I love them!

The Mindthief is a very interesting miniature – small but full of even smaller details and gives you the space to work with the highlights, regardless its size.

Still trying to figure out what the Mindthief is, but at present the winning theory is that he is a cat surrounded by rats? Or maybe it’s a rat surrounded by other rats?? Who knows!?

Let’s talk about the painting stuff: I primed the Mindthief in white and this time I used standard paints, like the good old times! The Mindthief is almost entirely grey and we don’t want to end up with a grey thing with no details in it.

So, I started with a very dark grey and, after applying a shade, I started to highlight all the figure with few lighter tones so the miniature won’t be flat.

Please note: there are two small rats, one on the Mindthief’s shoulder and the other one close to its foot. Try not to miss them.

A small note: I used for the first time the Glass palette from RedGrass Games: absolutely loved it!
