What happens if you meet a two-headed giant from Yorkshire?

You get Ettin!

I’m here all week, folks...

More of the Descent miniatures, and this time they’re bigguns. Two Ettin (Ettins?).

These are nice chunky figures with plenty of detail and character. Again I’ve tried to keep the painting simple to get them done quickly, and I think it’s turned out well.

Once again I’ve tried to distinguish the master from the minion with a splash of red, this time with gore splattering the massive club.

Unfortunately, I splattered and splashed with a bit too much enthusiasm and when I was taking these photos I noticed I’d dropped blood onto the Ettin’s belly, armour and base, and so a hasty cover up ensued which appears to have only been partially successful, and so I’ll need to go back to it.

If I have a gripe with these figures, it’s the fact that there are some hefty mould lines across the shoulders (which you can see above) and down the sides of the models.

I’ve decided that I’m not going to get too worried about this as it would be a lot of effort to fix, I’m deliberately trying to get them done quickly, and these are essentially board game pieces.

Next up, probably, are some Zombies and things called Flesh Moulders, who have a bit of a zombie vibe to them - I’m hoping to rattle through them as a group during the course of a week.


  1. More nice additions to your burgeoning Descent collection. :)

    1. Thanks. I’m quite pleased with these.

  2. They are cracking looking minis! Nice paintjobs on them both :)

    1. Cheers. It’s technically the same paint job though. :)

  3. Really good looking Miniatures mate, great job
