[Log] Dungeons & Dragons Wrath of Ashardalon - Part 2, Heroes Overview

First layer of paint applied on these adventurers.
In this update, I go over my plans for each of the five heroes in Wrath of Ashardalon. So far, I have given a base coat to all five heroes. There  seems to be a scale issue with the heroes, especially with Vistra and Keyleth. Proportionally, Vistra the Dwarf is much larger than both the Dwarf hero in Castle Ravenloft and the Duregars in Ashardalon. For me, the scale of Vistra seens more suitable as a stout human and I think I will use the model as a human rather than a dwarf fighter. The elven Keyleth, on the other hand, is rather petitite compare to the other heroes. Anyways, here is the paint scheme I plan to paint these miniatures, Below is the paint scheme I plan to go for each one:

[Log] Dragon Tides - Overview

To be very honest, I did not have much interest in the Dragon Tides game. I specifically purchase this game to get the Bruce Lee figure for Yashima. Since I have the Yashima cards for Bruce Lee, I thought I might as well get the figure for him instead of using the cardboard token. Like Yashima, the figures are larger than most of the 28-35 mm scale miniatures I have. Strangely, the Dragon Tides figures are slightly smaller than the Yashima miniatures. I do have some interest to get the henchmen models (not made yet from what I can tell) to replace the tokens, but seeing how the kickstarter of this project is not running too well, I am leaning toward not collecting any more models for this game. It all depends on whether my family enjoys playing this game or not. There is a total of 8 figures (4 dragons, 2 mini-bosses, and 2 bosses based on the scripts in the game) in the core box game:
Unlike Yashima in the green colored plastic, the Dragon Tides model are slightly smaller in scale and in a white color.
