I was wondering about painting up the Daleks in my Dr Who RISK…

Dr. Who Risk
Hey! That's My Fish!
Moongha Invaders

Honourable Mention:
HeroScape, HeroClix, and MTG: Planeswalkers really these are miniatures games, not board games, but sometimes they are counted as board games.

We used the ships from Broadsides for playtesting Don't Give Up The Ship, but we didn't paint them.

I did paint them for Man O War!

Eagle Games has two sets issued with 1:72 playing pieces, although I just bought the horses separate to replace some of the old Airfix horses. They are pretty generic but they work

Conflict, an old Parker Brothers game. Small artillery pieces that fit in with 15-20mm. All that was left from the game I had 50 years ago. Just bought a new (old) one at Fall In.

Are the GW/MB games too obvious?
Space Crusade

And the FFG big box games with minis?
War of the Ring
