SDE Full Party!

15 07 2014

Sorry for not posting anything these last few months. I have definitely been painting, but haven’t found time to blog. I finally finished all of the heroes from the base SDE set! I just finished the dwarf and paladin

The whole team assembled! I think they look pretty good together as a team. Now to smash some kobolds! (photo taken with my friend’s traveling light box)

 

Some work in progress shots from the paladin. Again, I used all flat paints to do the “non-metalic metal”.

I’ll admit the shield is a little choppy…

Finals right to left: paladin, dwarf, and Captain R.

Captain R was really fun to paint as the sculpt is very flavorful. However the model is not perfect; there are some annoying mold lines/ mismatched mold lines along the hilt of the sword, but overall a good cast. One complaint I have is that the base on the captain is different from the starter set and unfortunately he comes glued to it… -_- The problem is that base on captain R has much less detail. There are fewer grooves and cracks that made the original bases look like a stone floor.

One huge positive, Captain R, a “dark hero”, is also a lot of fun to play. He acts as a mini-boss and his special ability allows him to attach equipment from the treasure and loot decks. Pretty sweet for a minion of the console!
