Skeletons and more tiles!

Finished the regular Skeletons last night. Now I only have three unpainted minis for playing Descent left - being three of the gargoyle/razorwing figures that are still white plastic. All the other monsters look playable now :)

And I've got enough tiles to do a number of different Quest maps now! I found that Quest 2 is the longest/widest of all the quests, and the only quest that won't fit entirely on my table. I had to remove a 2x2 tile from the passageways, and now it fits. I figure, 2 squares shouldn't make much of a difference. I counted out how many squares wide all the other maps are in the books, and they all fit fine. Anyway, here's the ground layout of one of the Quests with some of monsters thrown on :) Note the three unpainted Gargoyle/Razorwings. They're next on my paint list.

Treasure ! Loot !!

When I ordered a bunch of plaster stuff to be cast for me for my 3D dungeon, from Griffin Grove (using Hirst Arts molds), so I didn't have to do the messy work, I added some extra molds to the order. I wasn't entirely sure what bits and pieces would be in them, but there were some crates, and a fire pit I think. Anyway, I discovered two types of chests in there today, and piles of gold coins, so I have made up a Gold Chest, Silver Chest, Bronze Chest, and Pile of Coins for Descent :)

Hirst Arts and the pre-painted Ruined Castle Walls

I don't know if you've seen the ruined castle walls pieces I got ages back, pics of them way back in this blog, though if you follow my brother's blog, you'll see them from time to time in our Lord of the Rings battles. I think they were from Pegasus Games or something. Anyhow, it turns out that they fit perfectly on my spaced hirst arts 'descent' tiles. This means if I lay the tiles out to make a solid rectangle board of stone tiles, I can lay some castle ruin pieces on top, to create a ruined castle, or ancient underground ruins, or whatever, for characters to explore! Here's how it looks with a handful of walls on the hirst arts pieces I've done so far :) As always, click for bigger picture, or right-click and open in new tab for full size.

Getting back into Descent tiles

So, here's the tiles, doors and rocky wall bits for Descent Maps I have done to date, laid out as a single board. Been a while since I did any miniatures stuff, so this week I'll be doing up some more tiles and stuff to add to the collection :)
