Decent progress on Descent models!

Here is my progress so far on the Merriods for Descent. 

Whilst the colour scheme is pretty standard, i.e. follows the art on the card for the model, I am really pleased with it and think these are my favourite models so far. Some blue wash, some highlights and a mix of matt and a decision on matt or gloss varnish (I really like the idea of them looking wet but matt would keep them consistent with the others) and we are done!
P.s for the observant reader, no the Vallejo blue in the background is not the paint I used.

Finally finished some models...and started new ones!

Good morning peeps! I finally found a few regular periods of time to make painting progress... lunch hour and when the boy is being put to bed! Thus I can give a long over due update on my painting progress.

Getting older and going grey

Just a quick post to say GO GREY! As I have posted before I have been painting my Descent models and wasn't really satisfied with the black undercoat I had applied, particularly as I found it hard to see the details. Having watched some painting guides I noticed a trend for using grey undercoats so gave it a try. So far I am loving it. Using the GW grey spray and it is matt, smooth and shows up the details of the (rather small) models really well. Looking forward to getting some paint on them as I feel that the grey should mean I don't need as many layers to get a solid hue.

Much like Dave's Top 100 but with far less theme! Here we go...

Putting together my top 100 list!

I have been wondering if I like some games as much as I think I do, or to put it another way, do I like the idea of some games more than actually playing them. This got me thinking that it would be an interesting experiment to create a top 100 list. I found a website that will help you do it and it appears the easiest way is to export your BGG collection, so I began compiling a list of the games I had played. Thought it might be interesting to share...
