Gloomhaven   Leave a comment

Phil, Mike, Alex and Darryl played Gloomhaven.  Another great game.  We took on Drake’s Nest at level 2 (normal).  Phil had a new Beast Master character.  It was tough after the third room when lots of nulls and misses and problems with doors, stuns, poisons and movement all conspired to hit us hard.  The third room was dealt with/ held at bay by the beast whilst the rapidly fading heroes took on the last room.  Fortunately the Tinkerer had kept some good cards back and still had enough life with the help of Mike to take out the final room and grab the treasure.  So a very narrow victory with both Darryl Phil and Mike either exhausted or on their final rest!  Well done team.

Painting update   Leave a comment

Have completed Prince Imrahil of Dol amroth and Duinhir of the Blackroot Vale to add to my Fiefdom force.  I used layering rather than dry brush for the highlights.

I do not see a Ranger in Blue (in fact everyone would see him) so went with my usual greens.

Also did 3 Dead Marsh spectres and 3 orc trackers.  For the latter I painted the bases grey to theme with my ashen wasteland based Mordor Orcs.

Finally I painted a batch of my Mantic Games Dungeon furniture up.  I added verdigris and rust effects to go with the dank dungeon theme.
