I have been painting and converting HeroQuest Figures for my friend Philippe in France for about a year. He has a HeroQuest Blog and seems to have adapted the game by extending the rules, using bigger forces than came with the original game, and making additional Character Cards. He has quite a following and maybe be responsible for the huge price rise in second hand heroquest figures on ebay!!!
All the figures on his site (except where mentioned!) have been painted by myself…On there I am known as Slotkarman! There are many conversions to all the figure types. That is the bit I enjoy most!
It is a French langauge website but it is very easy to cut and paste text into Google Translate if you want to know what is going on and don’t speak French.
