I like what Mad Dog has done here. I think I might do this for Chaos in the Old World.

Hey, Mad Dog. Are they sticky/tacky? Does that shit come off on your fingers or what?

No, they aren't sticky at all and nothing comes off. The basic process I used was to color them with the sharpie, let them dry, then wash them in rubbing alcohol purposely trying to remove as much of the sharpie ink as possible. Most of the ink will come off, but what stays is what is permanently on the plastic. Then I repeated the process until they were completely covered and nothing came off with the rubbing alcohol. So ultimately the only ink on them is what's permamently attached to the plastic if that makes sense. I just went and tried again to wipe off some of the ink with my fingers and couldn't do it.

If I were to ever own FoD again, which I doubt, this is what I'd do:

Go find 5 wooden chess pieces. A king and four pawns. Stain them all a dark color. Paint the king black, with maybe a little red trim near the top. Paint the four pawns their own color, in very warm earth tones: brown, blue, green, orange/red. Use a bit of that dark wood stain again in the crevices of the pieces. Then get some sandpaper and lightly swipe parts to give them all an aged look.

FoD has more theme than any other game I've played. However, the minis really cheapen it up. Using 'antique' game pieces like this would hopefully create the feel of Van Helsing and company residing over a map of europe using old bits in the study to plot their courses and track dracula. I'd also add in the red Pente style beads Uba mentioned some time ago and let them use the 'dracula' king piece for where they think dracula is or however they like.

The plastic minis would have to go.

Jack,

That is a beautiful idea. I might have to steal it.

I was hoping someone would.

I don't own the game, and would really like to see a picture of this.

Did this ever happen (i.e. did someone ever execute the chess piece pimping)? I'd love to see pictures too.

I have yet to play this one. I keep hoping to pick it up in a trade but it never seems to appear, even in the big math trades.

That's because only stupid people trade it away.

Then again, I know a lot of stupid gamers.

I wish that I could see Ubarose's pics of her FoD painted miniatures. The pics are all kaput.

I took a lazy route inspired by White's chess piece idea. I ordered these a few years ago. They're not as bright in person as they look on the order page, but they're still pretty bright. Hoping they wear down with use.

My GW FoD was missing some pieces so we were using Arkham Horror minis for the investigators for a while. Chess pieces are better, and I never would have thought of it.

I bet these could be sanded and stained.

That's exactly what I ordered for GW's The Fury of Dracula, but I haven't gone through the trouble of weathering them. Using the pawns for the hunters and a little Dracula mini for behind the screen.

You should try this Citadel technical paint called Typhus Corrosion...it's kind of like a wash, a little thicker so it has more pigment. Still translucent, but it won't just wash into the crevasses. It might not work with those having a glossy finish/not being primed, but I think it might darken them down and also make them look more worn.

I can't imagine sanding those.
