Actually, the title is a lie. This isn’t a post about making treasure chests … more like buying treasure chests. Because, why fumble about with craft when you can buy great, affordable, minis from the Wizkids Deep Cuts range. In fact, between the Deep Cuts and Nolzur’s Marvellous Miniatures ranges, you can also replace most of your Gloomhaven monster standees with great looking minis.
The Chests pack gives you four undercoated treasure chests, which consists of two different chest minis both opened and closed. All you need to do is paint them!
The table below lists the colour combinations I used. 1 indicates Vallejo paints, and 2 indicates Citadel paints. As for the washes, manufacturer usually isn’t a factor, so go with your favourite, though I do like to thin down my black ink so its not so … black.
