Galaden – from Descent Legends of the Dark

Galaden is the Elf here. We all know how picky an Elf can be, so he deserves a very well written article!

Jokes apart, Galaden is another here from the stunning game Descent Legends of the Dark. I’ve decided to complete the heroes first, and then I’ll focus on the other thousands miniatures.

Galaden, again, is an Elf so he is surrounded by nature and also he has a nude torso – lots of skin work involved! I’ve decided to use only base paints – no contrast – and also I aimed for a matt look, as I did for the other heroes.

I’ve primed Galaden in black and I’ve also provided with some zenithal highlights from above (grey first, and white after). I primed the miniature using an airbrush.

Tip: I would suggest to thin the paint properly so the zenithal highlights will come through the paint and help you with the actual highlights later on.

This time I forgot to take a picture of every stage as I did while painting Syrus, but I promise I will do my best to keep that format going forward.

Another promise to self: try to fill the gaps on the miniatures!! I hate them but I always forget those! In case you want to do it and you are better than me in remembering stuff, I would suggest to use Liquid Green Stuff from Citadel.
