Back from holidays, back to work and back to Act Two of our Descent campaign. In order to spice things up I’ve decided to paint up a few different monsters to throw against the group.
This group actually come from and expansion to the main game called ‘The Trollfens’. It includes three Harpies and two Plague Worms.
There are actually another model for each of these groups, but to speed things up I’ve decided to only paint what I need for our campaign for now.
As ever, with Descent miniatures, I’m keeping things simple and so there’s not much to write home about with the Harpies, although I’m keeping my ‘red means master monster’ rule for clarity during the game.
These Harpies stand a good chance of being drafted into my Masters of the Universe games as there are a group of Harpies that feature quite prominently in the movie that introduced She-Ra.
With the Plague Worms, I’ve painted in the same way I did my Death Worm for 7TV for a couple of reasons. Firstly, I like it and it should brighten up the game a bit as I’m aware that some of my monsters are a bit dour in their colour schemes.
Secondly, it allows me to use the alongside the Death Worm in scenarios, possibly as it’s progeny.
One slight point is that I’ve had to do their bases differently to the rest of the Descent models as the way they are sculpted means they needed to be surrounded by marsh water rather than dry earth. I’m fairly happy with the effect.
The campaign gets restarted tonight, so I’d best go and read the scenarios...and the rules, as it’s been a while.
