Maledrakh's Horde of oldschool GW Skeletons

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.

      The following images depict a miniature of a female sylph or fairy in natura. I am not sure if these would be in conflict with the posting guidelines or not. Better safe than sorry.

      Clear minis are best painted by undercoating with a matte clear varnish and then transparent paints such as inks.
      This mini has wings in vallejo pale grey wash before citadel carroburg crimson wet blended on drucii violet. Body in thinned old citadel turquoise glaze, hair and panties in army painter green ink. The eyes are the only bits painted with normal opaque paint.
       
      As this mini does not seem to be released as of yet,  I do not know who sculpted it or what it's code or official name is.

      I'm not entirely sure what this is supposed to be; I got it in a group of figures that I bought on Ebay. I know it's by Grenadier, and that's it.
      I painted this up as part of my Morihalda challenge; to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard.
      Those eyes were tons of fun.

      I forget exactly what this figure is called, but it's another old Mage Knight figure that I have repainted. I think it would work well as a (small) evil treant. I'd have to go through the Monster Manual, but I'm sure that there are other plant monsters this would work as, too.
       
      Tabletop paint job as usual.
       

       

       

       
      ETA---Forgot to mention, this is part of my Morihalda challenge (do art every day in December).

      Primaris Space Marine (Warhammer 40,000)

      This was my first warhammer figure I've ever done. I've always enjoyed the theme of the game but never really like the Space Marines because they are to short. When I saw these new, taller, ones I actually got excited to paint one. The height on these guys are amazing. They really have a better feel about them. The issue was that I only wanted to paint one (for now) and that is when a friendly forumnite told me about this book they just released "Getting Started with Warhammer 40,000." I jumped at the chance at the book comes with one miniature on a nice base for only $15. I called my local GW store and they saved it for me. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to just paint a miniature and not spend loads of cash on a single miniature or a three pack. 
       
      I decided to go with a blood angel look for this guy. But I wanted to make it look a little unique so I did those grey chevrons on the shoulder and knee. This was also the first time I've done battle damage like you see here. It was FAR easier than I thought and the look is wonderful! I was very happy the way it turned out. 
       
      With this guy I did fill in the base with GreenStuff to give the model a little bit more weight. You can see that in the WIP below. 
       
      Thanks for the support.
