I also tried out doing some NMM on the weapons and a bit on the armor of the Chaos Knight.
I feel like I did alright for a quickie, especially the Fimir. The Chaos Knight took longer than I was aiming for because of the NMM attempts, and finding out too late that red NMM is only red and gray/black, and not white for highlights. I am a fool!
Also, I dipped the knight because I thought the glossy look worked for his armored self, but not so much for the lizardy Fimir.
ETA: Okay, the Fimir is now dipped, and dullcoted. I also added an iris to his eye, touched up a few places, and put in some faint highlights on his head, shoulders, thighs and forearms. Oh, and I painted his nails, so he can be beautiful for the boys!

Buglips, that is just epic, and so very wrong.

My own old HeroQuest stuff is waiting until I get the KS paints next year, so its good inspiration to see other people doing them. Although its still kind of a daunting task... unlike Buglips, Ive got dozens and dozens of them.
Not sure if I approve of the missing bauble on the Chaos Warrior's helmet or not...

I still have a ton of goblins and orcs to paint though!

I really like Fimir. Looks like a fun figure to paint.

Hah, my band was still playing 1st ed AD&D in the early 90s!
Very Nice. I guess I must have gotten out of gaming before these came out, because I do not remember them at all. I got out of Fantasy gaming during the high point of D&D second edition, Then moved on to Twilight 2000 and BattleTech / MechWarrior.

@cookjimjr: It came out in 1990 in the United State, originally, which I think is around the time you left. It's really fun, though! It's the earliest D&D-esque board game I can think of, but I could be wrong.

On the bright side, though, from what I can research on the net I still have every figure Im supposed to have (game plus Kellar's Keep and Witch Lord expansions). Only things missing are two swords broken off from goblins. Ive got so many little placeable skulls... Id forgotten about some of the nice dungeon dressing, too.

You must have just missed them. HeroQuest is circa 1989/1990 just like AD&D 2nd Ed.
Although I gather it came out in the UK first (its a Games Workshop game) and took a year or two in getting to the US.

And you're right about the dressings. The cardboard is a bit cheesy, but the wizard's desk and the sarcophagus/tomb are really well done and could definitely fit into a lot of different ideas.
