Way back, when I first started painting I took a small detour from the Games Workshop Dwarfs and started painting some miniatures from the 1st edition version of Descent: Journeys in the Dark. This was mostly to take a break from the monotony of continually painting the gold and metal bits of the Dwarf models. I wasn’t terribly sophisticated in my painting techniques since, at the time, I really only had maybe a dozen fully painted models under my belt at the time. But having said that, I was always very happy with how this model turned out and it was one of the reasons I kept painting!
Unfortunately, I let my ex-girlfriend take my copy of Descent along with all of its models. So unfortunately I no longer have this model, or several others I painted from that original set. I do have a few (admittedly low quality) pictures of them, thankfully.
I did promptly purchase another copy of Descent: Journeys in the Dark; the other Descent-labeled models I’ve posted are from that second copy. The problem, however is that the second copy I purchased didn’t have all of the correct game boards! It was missing one main board tile and instead had a duplicate of one of the other boards, making it unplayable. Also, models contained in the newer copy of the game seemed to lack some of the finer details, and the decrease in the model quality really shows in my attempts to paint them.
Ah well, live and learn. The moral of the story: Don’t let your ex make off with your painted miniatures!
