Hey y'all, The Duke here. As some of you who are following the Facebook page will know I recently started painting my Descent 2nd Edition minis. Initially when I bought the game I only painted the Merriods, which were the one mini I didn't have a proxy for already in my collection. Last year I painted a handful of the heroes (3 to be precise) to use with Road to Legend when the app came out, but that was largely it. So for the most part the game has sat unpainted since and I thought it was about time I changed that.
And there you have it, I still have a handful of the Lieutenant miniatures to paint before I can really call it done but I'll post those in a future update. The set was painted in a little over a month. As with most board game projects I set myself a time limit of no more than 2 hours per model. This keeps me on track to finish in a timely manner, rather than having a project drag out so long that I get distracted and never finish.
Some of the minis took less, with some batch painted across a single evening, while the heroes were largely painted at a pace of one a night, generally requiring more attention and detailing. All the monsters have been rebased on MDF bases as seen in my last post, with a magnet countersunk into them to work with my newly constructed carry cases.
And also so I can do this
You can see more pictures including some First Edition and Second Edition expansion minis over in the new Gallery. I've also been hard at work updating the new Duke of the Blood Keep homepage which can be found here. Please bear with me as I work on this, there's a lot to do. You'll find some galleries haven't been added yet and others may have some placeholder content. I plan to do a whole slew of new pictures over the summer to bring some life to some older paint jobs and really display them to their best so keep checking back for new content.
I have also worked hard to update the mobile version of the site which should now display reasonably well, even if it takes a bit too long to load at times. You can access the blogs and many of the gallery pages via the menu button which should always appear at the top of the screen.
Anyway, that's about it from me for another week. If you like what you see here don't forget to comment down below and if you want more regular updates subscribe to the facebook feed. Until next time, keep on painting

Painted Descent Miniatures The Descent game includes a bunch of miniatures with the game. Since I don't have time to paint them myself, I've traded a few molds in exchange for the paint jobs from various artists. I think they have all done an excellent job and this is the section I'll show off their work.
These skeletons were painted by Skullcraft.
These beastmen were painted by
Alessandro Manilii from Italy.
Sorcerers were painted by Runelord (Matt Morrissette) from Connecticut.
These razorwings were painted by
Robert Sparenberg (aka Imahilus) from The Netherlands.
These nagas were painted
These hell hounds were painted by
Julie Nahm from The Missouri.
These spiders were painted
by Brent Collins from Texas.
These ogres were painted by
Scott Trego from Florida.
These giants were painted by
Jez Spencer from England.
Manticores by Daniel Joyce from Washington.
These demons were painted by
Greg Cymbalist from Canada.
These dragons were painted by
David Pederson from Wisconsin.
These kobolds and ferrox from the "Well of Darkness" expansion
were painted by Undave from the UK.
These golems were painted by
Scott Trego from Florida.
All of these miniatures come with the Descent game by Fantasy Flight Games. Please remember that Hirst Arts is not affiliated with or endorsed by Fantasy Flight Games in any way. You can see how to build a Descent board on our Game board building instructions page.
|1.||I'll start by spray painting the doors flat white. If you use white plaster then you won't have to do this. However, since bare plaster soaks up paint you'll have to work much faster.|
Take brown craft or artist's acrylic paint and brush it on the door. Then take a paper towel and wipe the paint off quickly. The paint will stay darker in the cracks. You may have to reapply the brown paint if it's not dark enough.
|2.||Next, paint the iron parts solid black on both sides.|
Finish the door by dry brushing silver paint onto the iron parts of the door. The bars will show up, but the black recesses will stay dark. Try not to dry brush silver onto the wooden parts of the door.
Paint the outside stone of the door separately and then glue the frames onto the doors after they're completely painted.
|3.||The colored rune doors are painted the same way. For these I used a bronze color on the iron and painted the diamond stone inserts different colors.|
Feel free to paint a rune onto the stone diamond if you like. I found that I liked the solid color better. These doors are from the Game board building instructions page.
Painting Chests and Coin Piles
|1.||Start by spray painting the chests flat white. If you use white plaster then you won't have to do this. However, since bare plaster soaks up paint you'll have to work much faster.|
Take brown craft or artist's acrylic paint and brush it on the chest. Then take a paper towel and wipe the paint off quickly. The paint will stay darker in the cracks. You may have to reapply the brown paint if it's not dark enough.
|2.||For the 3 different types of chests used in the Descent game, I used 3 different colors to stain them. For the copper chests I used a dark muted brown, for the silver chests I used a medium gray and for the gold chests I used a light golden brown.|
|3.||I painted the trim for each kind of chest in its matching color. Be careful not to let the paint get down into the cracks. The dark cracks outline the edge of the trim.|
I also painted numbers on the bottoms of the chests to match the tokens from the Descent game.
|4.||Spray paint the coin piles flat white.|
Next I painted them using copper paint which made them come out very light copper colored with not much detail.
Finally I brushed brown ink wash over them and wiped off the excess to give the finished look in the last photo. These pieces are from the Game board building instructions page.
Painting Planks and Making Bridges
|1.||I'll start by spray painting 30 planks flat white. If you use white plaster then you won't have to do this. However, since bare plaster soaks up paint you'll have to work much faster.|
Take brown craft or artist's acrylic paint and brush it on the planks. Then take a paper towel and wipe the paint off quickly. The paint will stay darker in the cracks. You may have to reapply the brown paint if it's not dark enough.
|2.||The bridge ropes are made from elastic cord. This is small round stretchy cord you would find in the fabric department at Wal-mart.|
To paint the cord tan, I'm going to dip it in brown ink wash. I poured just enough in a cup to cover the bottom. You can also thin down brown paint but ink wash will put more color into it.
I'm painting about 24" of elastic. Stir it around with a paintbrush handle and make sure all parts are covered. Afterward, wipe it off with a paper towel to dry it. You can pour the extra ink wash back.
|3.||Put a drop of glue on the end of the cord and make a loop. Wrap brown thread around the loop to secure it. The glue will spread everywhere and stick the thread down. I'm using Aleene's Tacky glue.|
Put loops on both ends and make the ropes a little shorter than the span it will cover. The elastic will stretch to fit.
|4.||Snap the elastic cords over the stones. |
Put drops of glue on them and glue the planks onto the bridge.
|5.||Elastic works nicely because you can remove the bridge later on if you want an uncrossable pit.|
For the long bridge, make sure you get both pieces exactly 7" from end of loop to end of loop. This is a little tricky, but if one is longer than the other your bridge will not hang evenly.
Once again, glue the planks onto the ropes in groups of two. This way it's easier to see that moving every 2 planks is the same as moving one inch or one square.

If you want to see from the back, tell her to turn around, added Katya. - Turn around, Dimon did not force himself to beg for a. Long time. And Lena, it seems, also fulfilled the order with pleasure, still standing with her back was not so ashamed. The girl in the back was also good, but the guy judged that the frontal view was still better, Back.
