Maledrakh's Horde of oldschool GW Skeletons

Recommended Posts

These look super!

Those older skellies have so much more character then the newer ones!

 

Great to see them painted and I like the bases.

Looks like a mix - I'm thinking some of those helmets and spears are from newer kits, but I definitely recognize some late 80s early 90s skelly parts from my most favorite kit ever:

"Citadel Skeleton Army" (the big red box with 9 cavalry, a bunch of infantry and 1 chariot). Looks great! 

 

I've been looking for deals like this on ebay for a while. Settled on a $22 for 12 lot. I've got my eye on a larger one, but it contains some junk I don't really want more of (more monopose plastic Skaven), so I'm hesitant to pull the trigger until the price gets lower on it.

      I crossed over to the global beast from Nottingham to buy these, they were at a trade show on a deal. Néed to paint some Reaper figures for balance, maybe the Bog skeletons from Bones 4. 
       
      Vallejo bone primer all over, which was hard to do as it was the exact colour of the unpainted plastic minis. Then an Army Painter Strong tone wash all over everything. Then I did Mirage blue cloaks and shields, and sand and off white wraps and rags. The weapons are Army Painter Old Iron. The bones were not dry brushed, I tried to carefully (for me) paint highlights with Army Painter Skeleton Bone. I seem to have been helped with some very literal paint names on these. 
       
      In terms of assembly these were very easy as they essentially snap together. All I would say is that this limits converting a bit as you don't have a sprue of heads, arms etc to muck around with and swap. Would recommend these though and they are one of the better value sets as you get seven models.

      It's been far, far too long since I sat down and painted a mini. Too many other life priorities. But anyways...
       
      So, I painted a Sisters of Battle terminator, and I decided I wanted her as a mini. Games Workshop does not sell SoB terminators. And so began my long conversion process, spending far too much money on bits for a model that probably can't be ever fielded.
       

       
      A ton of plasticard cementing, ProCreate sculpting, and general hackery later, I came out with this. Proportions are somewhat wonky, but I think they're beyond my capability to fix short of sculpting everything from scratch. Plus GW's proportions have always been wonky, especially for terminators.
       

       
      A coat of primer and I'm feeling better about this whole project already.

      I got the (old) Necron "Start Collecting!" box and finally got everything put together. Time to start painting...
       
      (There is actually some assembly left to do, but I'm waiting for some magnets. Those are a few weeks out still but I figured I'd get most of the painting done in the meantime and just touch up whatever bits need touched up.)

      Went to an intense NNM metal class with Banshee last weekend.  
      we started out with either this guy or a pace marine.  
      I still haven't ever painted  space marine. 
       
      It was a lot of color theory, breaking figures down into simple shapes and knowing the intensity of various paints and inks. 
      Im was not sold enough on the green to carry it over onto the shield, so I just left that as  base NMM 
       
      We also painted a 75mm knight from noctura, but I didin't get anywhere near finishing that one, not sure I ever will....

      Dylan Blackzorn looked around at the engine room with an annoyed expression on his face. The raiders had caused a hell of a mess in there. A fair amount of damage, too from the looks of things. He signaled for the others with him to follow his lead; they needed to be sure there weren't any surprises waiting for them before they got to work bringing the various systems back online.
       
      He flexed his fingers inside the energy glove on his left hand. In addition to being a great asset in the hand to hand combat they'd had to engage in with the raiders, it was also a powerful tool. With it, he'd be able to engage with the ship's engineering computer and ascertain what repairs were going to be necessary, as well as to dramatically shorten the time those repairs would take.
       
      Time to get to it, he thought. The sooner they were out of this sector, the better.
       

       

       

       

       
      He really does have a face, and it looks pretty decent in person....sigh.
      I'll have to go back and try to make it stand out a little more.
