Descent 2nd Edition – Painting Journey

descentimageDescent 2nd edition has been a game i collected and loved since 2015 and saw my return to painting models after a break of around ten years. Not all of this journey is fully documented historically, but it became a Christmas tradition to add Descent expansions to my gift list, and spend the year painting it up. This version of the game is now coming to an end with the release of Descent Legends of the Dark due out in 2021, but most of the models i have painted for this game can be viewed within my dedicated expansion webpage > Descent 2nd Edition

Core Set

Manor Of Ravens

A female knight hero and witch hunter style characters, some wraiths that were an easy paint and came up really well, and the bandits which i was not looking forward to much but some speedier painting they were pretty quick to do in the end. The question is whether i add the golem boss monster, as he is pricey really for what you get.

Stewards of the Secret

One of my favourite heroes and monsters box sets with four really nice looking heroes and some amazing large monsters.


I added a few lieutenants to my collection. I originally focused on getting the bigger and better models from the expansions, but i have now added characters who have been written into the Road to Legend storyline, such as Belthir and Merrick Farrow.

Now i really must get started on Nerekhall as this is the one i keep putting off. You can see more painted expansion set pictures here > Descent 2nd Edition
