The boardgame Descent: Journeys in the Dark is supplied with eighty plastic 28/25mm miniatures of varying quality (some pretty good, a few awful). Three of the four supplements for the game come with another thiry plus figures each. When I bought the game and two of its supplements I planned to paint all of the figures. They have all been finished for a while now and the next expansion is scheduled for painting in the autumn.
As there were so many I wanted to get them done as fast as possible and the project turned in to my first foray into the “dipping” technique, with varying results. With a lot of these I attempted to do the minimum amount of work required to get them to a reasonably finished state. While the finished figures are individually not brilliant they are perfectly suited for purpose: playing games.
With my gaming group starting to play Song of Blades and Heroes I suspect that these figures will be getting a new lease of life in some tabletop games (rather than boardgames) soon
First up is five of the magic user type Hero figures from the base game.
The general proportions, left arm, forehead, concept and paint job on this figure are brutally bad. The figure is only completed out of a sense of completeness. Move along please.
