Northstar Skeletons

Recommended Posts

Wonderful Job, and you choice of blue for the scabbard was a surprise enhancement.

Appreciate the slow development of the deep reds with that nice dark shadow in folds.

Excellent work.

These look great. Currently painting up some Skeltons so appreciate your work! I also just noticed how you painted the nicks in the shield and that I had been doing mine backwards (with dark stripe first). Thanks for the photos!

Great job on them, way more care than I put into my skellies, that's for sure.


Those are Mantic though, not Northstar. I've seen Mantic's undead repackaged for Frostgrave, is that a Northstar Frostgrave pack maybe?

They indeed are! I got them from Northstar so I assumed they were from there.

      Greetings!
       
      Another skeleton. This one is very adept at fighting around corners or in circular rooms...

      You can never have too many skellies...... This Bones one has quite a lean on it, I did give a bit of the old "boil 'n' chill" before painting but unfortunately it sprang back over time.

      For my upcoming Dragon Age campaign.
       
      I thought they looked like they need to pee, but a buddy elsewhere described them as Bone Strippers, and now I can't unsee that.

      The painting theme of the month has been chosen! The Undead of October will emerge from their (freshly painted) graves The miniatures have been selected… Here’s what's on the painting table:



      9 Bones Skeletons (from Bones 2)
      6 Undying (Death, minotaur, lizardman, elf, halfling, & dwarf skeletons from Bones 3)
      Bone Fiend (Bones 2)
      4 mummies (Bones 2)
      Hecklemeyer & Styx (25th Anniversary mini)
      Dust King & Tomb (Bones 3)
      Demi-Lich (Bones 2)
      3 Nefsokar mummies (Bones 1)

      26 (or 28 if you count the broken tomb and the tiny puppet) minis, in 31 days? Less if you count the vacation in the middle of the month… Plus one day since I started on the last day of September. Granted, the skeletons should all go really quickly, but even still, it’ll be a push to get it done, but this would push me over 100 minis for 2018… 



      Since everything is already lined with brown liner, the plan is:
      Dirty Bone on all the bone and mummy wrapping!
      Scorched Metal all the armor and weapons 
      Heavy Sepia Wash pretty much everything
      Highlights

      Special Minis:
      Demi-Lich - Thinking green/purple flames?
      Hecklemeyer - Black & White costume? Black, White, & Red?
      Nefsokar mummies - Lots of gold and bronze. 
      Dust King - Seriously tempted to paint it up like the ice lich from Warcraft… 

      As for their bases? That’s a little more work. The skeletons, bone fiend, and maybe the dust king will get bases to match the flocking on the tombstones. The demi-lich and hecklemeyer will probably get some sort of sculpted flagstone base. The mummies? Haven’t decided. Seriously tempted to give them dungeon flagstone bases too… 

      Okay, so it’s really unlikely I’ll finish all of these in October, but maybe by November?

      The door opens to reveal a room filled with bones. There are large and small ribs and leg bones, bare and white, piled ankle deep, with a huge pile in the center. The large pile is topped by a cow’s skull, and you see numerous other skulls, shattered and broken, hidden among other bones. As you enter the room, the pile of bones stirs from its resting place. It rises from a crouch to reveal a fully constructed minotaur skeleton. Within its bovine flicker twin motes of malevolent light. Jeff Grubb – Wrath of the Minotaur.
       
      It’s the second time I paint this awesome 77559, Undying Minotaur, Dark Heaven Bones 50mm tall model sculpted by Bob Rodolfi. I painted this Bones version for the D&D Fast-Play Adventure Wrath of the Minotaur.
