Dungeon Saga Undead

Recommended Posts

My copy of Dungeon Saga and associated extras arrived at the weekend and i have just started on some of the skeletons

Here they are washed and ready to paint.

They did need a bit of hot water treatment to bend them back into shape; some of them looked like skeleton limbo dancers, and they needed a foot glueing in place.

I like the delicate look of the bones, and the skeleton with scythe reminds me of the old Heroquest classic.

Thanks.  I'm not sure how to describe the material.  Deep detail is good, but shallow detail is not quite as good.  Still plenty good enough for purpose though.

Currently the six skeletons are undercoated (brush on white) and I am part way through blocking in base colours.  I realise now that there are some mold lines I have missed, might go back and correct these; they are very hard to spot on unpainted plastic, but more obvious with a layer of paint on.

Update and pictures when I have got the base coats finished.

I was about to comment on that one. That was the first thing the popped into my head upon seeing them. Nice skeleys.

Base coats just about done.

The undercoat is brush on Vallejo Game Colour.  Bones are VGC Bone White, the various rags of clothing are a mixture om my old Citadel Foundation colours.  Steel is VGC Gunmetal thinned with black ink.

Next will be a wash.  I had originally planned to do a really quick job and just use Army Painter quickshade, but I think I'll try a bit harder on these.

C&C welcome

I hope the swordsman's skull looks a bit better shaped in the above pics, its not quite as rounded as the others, maybe in life he had a bit of a flat forehead?

The ones wearing pants crack me up. Not sure why...maybe it is the vertebrae disappearing into the dark abyss of the pants. Haha! I think these are great skellies!

It's the pockets, never underestimate the usefulness of pockets.

Indeed , the swordsman does look better painted, he has a bit of a longer skull.

 

In a horde these would look great.

 

I love Undead armies..

Thanks Xherman, stick around for the rest of the bunch.

The skellys, while great, are not a patch on some of the other undead minis.  Just wait until you see the zombie trolls!

I need these for the first scenario though, so they got first preference.

Your painting them prior to playing th first scenario?! I couldn't stop my two sons playing the walkthrough scenario about 1/2 an hour after opening the box. I was reading the rules on the fly.

 

I do intend to paint these skeletons at some point but I may go for the trolls first.

Yup  ::D:

Put it down to restraint and self discipline.

 

(Or more likely my usual gaming group were finishing of a Delta Green scenario last games night, and my son is away at uni  :down: )

 

 

 

the bow skelies seem to be strutting a bit trying to impress the lady zombies maybe?

 

He always did have an eye for the ghouls.

 

(sorry)

      Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one:

      Yep, a dead head.

      50mm base.
      The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint.
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.

      I've got more dead things for you today.  @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead!  Here's my little collection of swamp zombies.


       
      The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere.
       


       
      He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model.  I love him.

      Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40).



       
      I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush.  His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up.  Would make a great shaman-type mini.

      And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game.  Again.  Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now.  Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck.



       
      All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies.

      Which one do you like best?

      Crawling back from the dead here with this fun little handful of zombies!  Added some gravestones to a few of them using popsicle sticks.  Just good ole' classic grave crawling zombies.  Went for a dusty color palette.
       
      Which one do you think turned out best?

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.

      And what's a graveyard setting without some undead wolves to harry the party in the snow?
