So, I've decided to try my hand at batch and speed painting... First post here is of the raw product after warp corrections. Zombies, mummies, and skeletons from the 2012 KS...

Here we are base coated with a dark walnut brown. I like a dark base coat to hide recesses that I may not reach. I am going for tabletop quality so I'm trying not to kill myself on these minor baddies... Sorry for the distracting background and poor photos... Using my phone.

This is going to be fun to watch. Arise my minions! ARISE!


Seriously, speed painting skellies makes sense. I would say you might want to take some time to individualize the shield, but it depends on the end goal for the miniatures,

You picked a good group to speedpaint. Skellies and mummies are super fast, zombies a bit more time consuming (especially the "Thriller" ones with torn pants all over the place) but can still be done in pretty efficient batches, and the ghast, which I just painted up the other day, is surprisingly easy as well, as long as you aren't dead-set on getting the skin blending perfect. Looking forward to seeing how these guys turn out for you!

Thanks for the encouragement!


I had to quit last night after laying down the base coat. It took a little too long to dry, and I had to get sleep before work today. I hope to work on them more tomorrow. I've spent a grand total of about 30 min. on them so far. That time includes the time it took to fix the warped bits, but not the dry time. I think I sat there for a good half hour or more staring at them and surfing the forum here hoping they would dry.

      I did this one a while ago. My first attempt to recreate the painted version on the packaging. I'm just missing the foliage. This was super fun! :D

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.

      Presenting the Rotten Mummy, as the name suggests he's a Mummy that's going rotten, and he's part of the Egyptian faction for the game Twisted by Demented Games.
      It's a really fun to paint mini that is annoying hard to photograph, but I think I did a decent job on him.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      For my Shifting Sands Project I wanted a Casket of Souls / Altar of the Damned.
      I scratchbuilt the altar from foam with the help of a Greenstuffworld rollerpin I gave it an Egyptian look.
      The bones/skulls are from the Greenstuffworld Crunchplates
      Then I added:
      The Caster:
      The Ghost appearing from the Casket
      The Guardians
      WIP HERE:
      SHOW OFF:
      One unoffending pic ( thx @Rigel)
