I'm not even going to address the length of time since my last post. Let's just pretend that gap never happened, shall we?

On with the show!

New paints
I've recently bought the full range of Vallejo Game Air as I've found the consistency of Model Air to be equally awesome for airbrushing or brush-painting, but the range was always pretty dull for fantasy miniatures. My initial thoughts are they are exactly what I was hoping they were - pre-thinned for airbrushing, and perfect for brush painting without loads of thinning. Nuff said.

New Miniatures
So I suppose it's possible I kept getting bored of painting because it was always the same dark green color scheme. Who knows? Life tends to be hectic for me and there was always something else to gobble up my time, but let's give something different a shot - Descent 2E.

Descent 2nd Edition is a board game in playing with 3 of my best friends, and is focused around a modular board and loads of miniatures. 3 of us play heroes and face off against the Evil Overlord who has primarily monsters to smash us up but also the occasional but powerful Lieutenant. These minis are smaller than 40k, but they are characterful and the cards describing them all are bright and vivid and look like a blast to paint. 

So let's get started shall we?

Tomble Burrowell
Tomble is the Hero I happen to be playing in our current Descent campaign, so I thought he'd be as good a place as any to start. Here's the official drawing of him, care of Fantasy Flight Games:

 And here's my painted version:

Not my best work, but hey, I'm rusty!

That's it for now - short and sharp. Next up, spiders!!!
