Mansions of Madness investigators

I was pleasantly surprised when FFG announced a new edition of Mansions of Madness at the end of July. I played the first edition a few times, and pictures can be found here and here.  
 
 
 
The new edition is an undeniable improvement and comes with eight investigators.
 
Wendy Adams, urchin
   
Agatha Crane, paranormal investigator
 
   
Carson Sinclair, butler
   
Preston Fairmont, millionaire
   
Minh Thi Phan, secretary

William Yorick, gravedigger 
 
The new edition can be used with first edition map pieces and investigators. Here is my entire collection of investigators!

    1. Thanks, Evan! They were just a quick job but it is nice to paint individuals rather than a squad of identical troops!

    2. These are great. I'm saving these pictures for references. Only thing I would change is for the ghost I think I was blue over green.

    3. Thanks, Blake! I think blue would look great- I went green because all my Lovecraft monster stuff has a green motif.

    1. Thanks, PC! I'm having difficulties with Blogger and will put up a bigger pic when I'm on my regular computer in 2 weeks. They do make a nice collection of 20s civvies.

  3. All wonderful but Yorick has to be my favorite!

    1. He reminds me of the Yorkshire Ripper, who was also a gravedigger... I had a good game with the wonderfully named Minh Thi Phan, and she's my fave. Agatha is suitably dramatic.

    2. I dunno, he seems more trustworthy than some... like that millionaire, or that Agatha Crane, who's got "secret crazy fanatic" written all over her.

      Fantastic job on these! They've got so much character.

    3. Thanks, Allison! It's fun to come up with backstories like how the millionaire and his butler and his personal secretary go monster hunting.

  5. great stuff, you've inspired me to badger my gaming mate to get his done to make the game look much better!

    I agree that the new version is better, full co-op is more fun that one poor soul being against the rest.

    1. It has lovely boards, it deserves painted figures.

      It is superb for solo play as well, a big plus in my book.

  6. I'm having issues finishing Wendy Adams. I can't tell if her back should match the color of the front and the apron part or if it should match the dress.

    What did you go with?

    1. I did skirt and sleeves blue, apron front purple, back and shoulders white. Hope that helps!

  7. I have been using your work for reference (hope you don't mind! Brilliant work btw!) and I just wanted to ask what you use for paints and washes? The sheer detail in these is incredible!

    1. Thank you, I'm flattered! I use a variety of acrylics. I have been using the Army Painter range which has nice washes as well.
