Two merry fellows join us today in our journey into expanding Descent with Reaper minis.
The creature known as Belthir apparently is a hybrid dragon, whatever that is. The obvious mini for that is this Gargoyle:
|HeroQuest Gargoyle's cousin|
I wasn't able to replicate the Pterodactyl-like jaws we can see in the official illustration, but this cow mouth is even more terrifying!
|Look at me! I'm a winged Ninja Turtle!|
Sculpting the armour was worse than the the face, but in the end the paintjob helped to cover it all up.
Well, it looks different from the starting point and I think it's a decent mock up for the original mini.
I've managed to get a second one done. Sir Palamon is not one of the evil Lieutenants. On the contrary, he's a special character the adventurers eventually meet in one scenario. The only things we get to know of him from the Quest Book is that he's an aged warrior bearing a sword. This mini suits perfectly what we were needing, as the conversion work would be minimal:
As said, the conversion was only about the arm and weapon:
The armour style was asking for a non-historical like paintjob, but something more in the videogame fashion, so this is what I tried:
The progress may be slow, but trust me, it's unstoppable! We'll need to revisit Descent as soon as all the minis are finished!
|Over the top full armour, a war hammer... Sorry, GW, Reaper invented the Sigmarines before you did|
|I really had a stash of those curvy swords|
|The book is for those boring moments between battles|
