About the Project

I backed the Hannibal and Hamilcar Kickstarter ( and recently received my copy in the mail. This is my endeavor to paint the board game's figures.

In the 36th project update on the Kickstarter, Phalanx Games posted a selection of the painted miniatures from the board game.  These were painted by an artist that goes by paritazi.

See his work here:

The highly detailed and colorful miniatures gave me inspiration to take his work and replicate it in some way on my own.  Additionally with the simple color schemes I would be able to challenge myself to utilize my Army Painter Mega Paint set and not the Citadel paints that I have grown so used to painting with.

For the first miniature to paint from the set I decided on Hasdrubal.  I felt that the figure and the pose that the figure was in lent itself to be best for demonstrating the effects of the paints.  As I mentioned previously this is the first time I am utilizing the Army Painter range of paints.

Below you can see the inspiration, the start with a few colors and a picture of the miniature after the wash has been applied.

For the blue cloth I used Ultramarine Blue washed with Dark Tone.

For the leather straps around his shoulders and waist I used Ash Grey followed by a wash of Dark Tone.

The flesh was simply Barbarian Flesh followed by a Flesh Wash.

The gold armor is Greedy Gold with a wash of Soft Tone.
