Board Games – Dark Souls is a successful video game series that was recently turned into the board game by SteamForged Games, the company behind Guild Ball. The models are pretty amazing for board game pieces and look great painted up.
While I haven't had a chance to play either iteration of this franchise it does look like something that might be right up my alley. Big creepy monsters, giant weapons and a generally odd aesthetic; totally in my wheel house.
The models were straightforward to paint, most of the scheme are based on the renders I found for each model online. Basing it GW texture paint which is really useful to put down a simple texture to match the board.
