Descent Miniatures and other stuff

Hello! Some time has passed since my last posting. Mostly cause it´s been quiet with the Space Marine Project, since Pan Vision put the painting project on ice some time ago, (for reasons unknown to me) but I hope it will continue as planned later :) I worked with the Black templars and Ultra Marines for a while before the halt, and I´ll post the pics at some point...

But here´s some things I´ve been working on in the mean while... 


Here´s my Karak Eight Peaks gobbo horde with Standard, Battle Standard, Great Shaman, Champion, and my "own version" of Skarsnik and Gobbla :) The base is right size... I just put a Gobbo champ with Squigling and a bigger Squig on the base... Worked fine! Of course there´s some netters too ( and fanatics hiding in the ranks :)) Unfortunately I only managed to paint two ranks before the campaign ended :(  Karak Eight Peaks was a great campaign to play, and the final battle with five armies (in our case) was huge mayhem, that took us whole day to fight through. And when the dust settled, my Green Skins were in strongest numbers on the table... We took some pictures of the battle, and I´ll post them later...

Then some Descent stuff...


We have been playing Descent for a little while now. First session with the basic rules of the starter box, and three latest games were all played with "Road to Legend" campaign system. I´ve been carrying a new expansion box to every session now... So there´s a LOT of stuff and minis to go around with. I decided to start painting the four Hero Minis, that he players have chosen to adventure with. Here´s few pics of the finished minis...



All four were really fast painted, (in my terms), in about three hours each.


Same dudes from behind...


And one shot from the higher ground to show the basing job... wich I´m quite happy with :)

Here´s some closer look to the mini and the "Hero Card". I tried to keep the colors little bit similar to the original pics in the cards... This is Battlemage Jaes. I made the light effect to the robe with dry brushing blue over the original purple color... Very simple stuff :)


Grey Ker... This was fun and easy to paint. Fortunately I painted the little bottles on the belt with the right colors too... cause they were the first thing the Grey Ker player checked (Pedantic Geek)...


Steel Horns was fast also. Not too many colors. I really like the green theme on the armour. I was thinkin to try it on my High Elves...


Spiritspeaker Mok.  Well... not so proud of this one. Instead of dry brushing I tried some "comic" style with the light effect here. And it didn´t work :(  I might paint this over later...)  But I think it´s still OK board game standard :)

That´s all for now... More later. Bye bye!
