Super Dungeon Explore Vol. 11: Here There Be Treasure!
When I sat down to organize the order in which I was going to paint SDE, I decided to make the treasure chests a nice little reward for painting the numerous Kobolds. If I paint a unit of Kobolds, I get to paint a chest. This served as a nice little diversion from the Kobolds, but also made the chests a pleasure to paint instead of another obstacle of wood and brass.
Secret of Mana, though I didn't like the idea of having more than one green chest. For the other, I went blue, and my mind seems to have projected that there were, in fact, blue chests in the game. If you know, feel free to correct me.
Obviously the final, fanciest chest had to reference Legend of Zelda, so I went with bright brassy gold and deep red.
As a group and one the table they all look great, and in the games we have played so far, I've enjoyed the heroes choosing which chests they want to see on the board, as if one color over another will be lucky. One of these days, I'll get to use them all....oh and speaking of things I haven't used yet......
As always, thanks for taking the time! Comments are always welcome.
More to come,
