Painted Boardgame minis

Put some color on it! Inspired by the great work done by Eric Wentling on his blog I also want to share my work painting my boardgames. I'm new to painting miniatures but hopefully we can learn and grow together. feel free to discuss what I painted and give feedback.

To the big folk, gnomes are hardly worthy of notice, never to be respected and certainly never trusted. Ravaella Lightfoot saw no reason to be stopped by this, managing to gain access to the University. Despite the efforts of the faculty and staff, she acquired many skills in the mystic arts. Now, she plies her trade to prove that gnomes can do anything the other races can, and do it better!

She's a small little gnome but a decent sculpt and fun bright colors to paint here with. I enjoyed this one a lot!

This concluded my last miniature i painted for Shadow of Nerekhall and also the last one I painted back before getting a whole bunch of extra stuff that still needs to be painted.

So this will be my last descent post in a while. I try and get a post showing my custom storage solution it might inspire others to try the same.

Descent will continue.

Every seven years, for seven days, the hidden monastery of the Serpent’s Shadow appears atop a remote mountain in Terrinoth. During that time, the monks take new students and dispatch their disciples to attend to business in the realm. Years ago, at dawn on the eighth day, Tinashi returned late to find the monastery vanished. Trapped with no place to call home, Tinashi now wanders throughout Terrinoth, using her skills as a Scout for the greater good.

Something is wrong with the face of the sculpt and i should have taken the purple effect to greater highlights but always look forward!

Finding a Latari Elf skilled in the ways of wilderness isn’t a difficult task, but even among her kin, few could claim Roganna’s prowess. As a reclusive sort at home in any portion of forest, plains, or swamp, Roganna will live anywhere as long as it lies far removed from any irritants of civilized life. She prefers seclusion above all else, even avoiding her own people, and as the march of progress continues in the lands around, Roganna finds herself retreating deeper and deeper into the wilds.

I used the same base as with Augur Grimson.
The green leaves growing all over here sculpt were quite hard to get right.
Also with this post the trollfens box is finished.

Never one to volunteer out of the goodness of his heart, Logan Lashley works for the highest bidder and knows a good score when he sees one.

Another post, another box set complete: Labyrinth of Ruin is fully painted and posted now!
A lot of leather on this mini, so the end result is kinda brown.

Descended from a long line of Daqan knights, Reynhart was destined for a glorious career in service to the Citadel. He became a squire for Sir Nessly at the exceptionally young age of nine, and was already competing in melees before his eleventh birthday. Yet, tragedy was overdue for young Reynhart. As he prepared Sir Nessly’s armor for a joust at Baron Zachareth’s annual tourney, he witnessed a cloaked stranger sneaking into his master’s tent, chisel in hand.

Reynhart knew what the man was about, as sabotaging a knight’s armor before a joust was a common ploy implemented by unworthy, treacherous knights. Reynhart drew his sword and mortally wounded the man—who turned out to be Zachareth’s cousin and royal treasurer. Reynhart was forced to flee the tourney or face the block for his crime. Since then he has sold his sword and kept his head low, waiting for a day that he might take his vengeance.

I never understood why did felt the need to change his pose from the image to the sculpt. Anyways one of the lesser ones unfortunately. But with him done the Lair of the Wyrm expansion is finished!

As a dwarf with decades of experience in alchemical experimentation, Ulma Grimstone is hard-pressed to remember the last time she had much in terms of eyebrows. Lately, however, she’s spent much of her time out in the field, searching for strange, new components, and her skills continue to improve each and every day. Best yet, as she understands it, her earliest test subjects are finally starting to regrow their fingernails and teeth.

Well here is the first time I tried OSL and I wend a bit overboard with it, but in my defense I didn't own any glaze mediums are anything that could have helped better with dilution.

A deep fascination and aptitude with darker magic has made Dezra a bit of an outsider all her life, but this has never bothered her. Her mannerisms and habit of staring at people as if visually dissecting them provided her with the title of "Vile," and her odd tendencies have often led townsfolk to forcefully request her departure. This also hasn't bothered her. For Dezra, discovering the secrets of flesh and magic has always been more important than the petty trappings of polite society, and no force in the world will keep her from satisfying this morbid curiosity.

Ah a good sculpt for a descent mini. I didn't try OSL on this mini, didn't have the practice for it yet.

An individual claiming knowledge of the future is rarely well received, especially not amongst the serious-minded Dunwarr Dwarves. Realizing this and even having received visions confirming such a truth, Augur Grisom departed the mountains long ago. With decades of wandering, he has made a life in helping others, often before they’re aware of requiring it.

Ah the better looking sculpt of the two descent dwarfs!
Lots of little pouches to paint.
I tried and make a swamp base inspired by the trollfens artwork. Looks a bit better in person then on photo.

Orkell the Swift was once a bandit, exulting in the excitement of daring raids and bloodshed. One fateful day, though, the cries of a child victimized by his band and its raids prompted Orkell to recognize the devastation he left behind. Since that day, Orkell has been forever changed. He remains ever ready to hurl himself into the fray, but he now does so to defend the helpless, bringing swift brutality to any who mean them harm.

I don't really like this sculpt but it was a good exercise to try and highlight muscle! Try and learn with every mini painted.

Rendiel’s wanderlust began when he heard a snippet of a song from a human merchant. When Rendiel pressed the merchant for more of his song, the man apologized and explained he didn’t remember where he’d heard it. Reasoning that a human heard the bewitching song in human lands, Rendiel set out on a quest throughout Terrinoth to find the song that haunts him.

I like the esthetic of Rendiel, i haven't played with him yet but I like the backstory and the sculpt. You definitely can see how newer the descent boxes how better the sculpts become. Still crap compared to what they released in the great looking hero and monsters boxes.
