Altar Quest is a co-operative dungeon crawler with a heavy focus on card play. It has never specifically been on my annual painting list due to competing priorities of other games with arguably better models. However i have enjoyed playing the game and decided to make a start on the top tray, going largely with the standard artwork colours, but giving each minion enemy a minor colour identifier so that i did not have to apply the base disks.
|February – March 2021 – first the four main heroes from the core set, a varied team of Rowen Loffin an Indiana Jones in hobbit form, and my favourite model in the game, making traps and cooking food buffs, swinging around using his rope, and throwing knives. He is of course not the strongest hero around, but he is great fun. Sedrin Highmoor a cleric character, healing and protecting the group with his prayers. Quella is a part human and bird mage character and Myreen Duvall the armored vampire fighter warrior. Overall a cool team of characters.|
|The Frox are a neat variant enemy group that inhabit the dungeons, frog creatures that come in the form of raiders (fighters), muckslingers (ranged blow dart) and bogmancers (shaman). These are a really cool alternative to the usual goblins or rat dwellers that we usually see, and are quite small.|
|The altar itself which looks great painted up, and alongside the Frox boss for a size comparison, he is a giant compared to the minions|
|Tray one completed in March 2021 – and my goodness there is still a lot more in tray two underneath … but it is a neat set and i really enjoyed painting the room scenery as it made a nice change|
|I am unsure when i will return to paint the rest of it.|
