My latest guide sees me working my way through a massive game from Fantasy Flight. Descent: Legends of the Dark is a reboot of a classic dungeon crawler. The first part of my guides covers the heroes and the Dragon Hybrid Centurion. I’ll be covering the enemies in the next guide.
This guide can be found in Issue 59.
These are probably the best selection of characters I’ve seen from a dungeon crawler. A 32mm scale gives them much more presence and a great amount of detail. The variation is fantastic with both a cat and dragon person, a magical phoenix and 2 women. I only note the women as they fit in traditionally male roles, knight and dwarven fighter, in what I think is a tasteful way, no skimpy clothing or provocative poses.
I also loved the addition of POC. For these guides I base the paint job off the art work or other source material. This gave me the chance to stray from my norm and try different skin tones.
The only character that was a bit of a let down was Galaden the elf. Still great by most standards, just the most generic of the batch and very similar to nearly every other elven archer I’ve seen.
It’s a mild complaint though and they are some of the coolest models I’ve worked on in a while.
Take a look at the finished models…
