Painted Descent update 05-20-2018: elemantals added

Recommended Posts

I have sooo much glue-ing and painting to do for my fantasy/Descent collection, any tips for saving time and efficiency?


Also I want to make one of my dragons a 'watercolour dragon' and paint it a bit like the one FFG use on their fantasy page image https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/#/genre


Any tips for getting that oily/metallic multicolour look and slightly watery sheen? For a closer look at the image I'm drawing inspiration from: https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/269078-dice-and-core-book-binder-and-best-dragon-ever/
 

And one more question: I have a cathedral building to paint and want to go for a high fantasy/ grand medieval-ish look, any tips for which colours might work best?

 

Love the green/white shade by the way- great for a forest setting too, I have several shades so can make two or three groups so might take inspiration from that for a group you might find haunting the woods!

Hey Watercolour Dragon,

I read two things, two opposite things. You want to save time, but on the other hand a very technical painting scheme. The best tip I can give you here is choose one of those two. Or find a balance between these two. I like the idea on what you want with your dragon, but even with multiple years of painting experience I can't think of a way to achieve this is a small amount of time. Goodluck with sorting things out, and don't start mutliple project at ones, that way nothing will get finished ;).

Cathedral colours: darkgrey, gold and red/blood. If you have a picture of the building I could give you more.

 

Happy painting, Greets Miel

Hi

Where did you get the model for the necromancer familiar?

It looks great, and I would like it for my own game.

Those are from Games Workshop Warhammer. Skeleton Warriors, got them for a bargain.

The timesaving's the fact I know there are tips for the repeated parts of jobs like undercoats- was just wondering what people have found works best, don't mind spending a lot of time getting the main paint right, for jobs like the dragon if I can figure (pun intended) out how to recreate that look I can see me spending a lot of time on it and probably a few sessions.

 

The first picture here and some of the interior ones fit what I'm after with the cathedral, that rather ghostly statue-like interior (I also have a few statue structures to paint so some tips for those would be helpful too) and quite dark, imposing, weathered exterior (Plus some weathering tips! I don't want much do I!)

Possibly a darker grey-black look externally to fit the darker mood and atmosphere of the story, so some sort of middle ground for the exterior, thoughts welcome!:
