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)

      Hi everyone, here are pictures of the first of 06143, Tomb Guards sculpted by Bob Ridolfi. This is the metal version from the Nefsokar Warlord Army Packs.
      I recently painted the three mummies from the pack and will post them on the forum this week. I really enjoyed their big Khopesh and the detail on there shields.

      Hi everyone,
       
      Here is the second skeletal beast I painted last week. This is Bones model 77924, Skeletal Chimera sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I added dirt and moss on it to make it look like it's freshly animated. The leaves are dry birch tree seed hulls. I picked them up in the forest and painted them before gluing them on the base. As a reference, the base is 2 inches wide.

      Good day everyone,
       
      With the dead leaves season comes harvest time. Autumn is also a time for gathering and for reflection. Like the Tuilvilanuue words say "Nilsi hentil kilta anno", it takes four seasons to make a year.
      Here are some pictures of Julie Guthrie awesome 77923 Skeletal Owlbear. I really enjoyed painting this model. The design of the skeletal beasts that Reaper recently produced is stunning. It is an archeological journey in fantasy land.
