skeleton warriors from wargames factory

Recommended Posts

The Deadites look very Ray Harryhausenish...that is The Ultimate Skeletal achievement. They are BEAUTIFULLY painted & based creations. VERY WELL DONE!

Malefactus said it best. They do look like Harryhausen skellies.

 

 

What happened to Wargames Factory? I have some of their stuff from a few years ago, and while not the best they are good for the price point certainly.

Warlord got their molds. (not clear on if they bought the company, or just the molds)

I was going to say they look so fantastic they could have been models straight out of Jason and the Argonauts.  https://youtu.be/pF_Fi7x93PY

Thanks for kind words!

And I think warlod hasnt done anything with wargames factory yet. I go to their site from time to time and there is no world about wargames models, and they disappeared from shops.

Word was Warlord was supposed to have the Wargames stuff up and running on their site back in November or so. Never materialized.

 

Very depressing, as there was much in WF's lines that was both affordable and good looking. I can't find any info on who is doing the Dreamforged stuff now; if it's going to be Warlord for that also, or if it's all just gone for good?

 

These look great, by the way. Really outstanding.

RE: Wargames Factory

 

Warlord have (at least) the Male Zombies (retooled and much better than the original set--poke about on Warlord for some glimpses), Zombie Vixens, male and female survivors, biker gang, biker gang leader for modern/near future minis.  There is also a Spec Ops sprue.  These are all part of the Project Z game line.  The biker sprues, male zombies, and special ops sprues were all "new" releases that WGF had tooled and ready for production.

 

Warlord also have the British infantry, American infantry, colonial militia, woodland Indians, and a cannon set for the American Revolution.  The WGF samurai sets (ashiguru, mounted samurai, and foot samurai) are there as well, and so are at least some of the ancients sets and the Orcs.

 

Some of the initial announcements for Warlord and WGF teaming up showed a box for the skeletons, so I'm guessing that Warlord have the rights although they may not have a supply at the moment.  This could just be an issue of new boxes needing to be designed or as complex as a retooling of the sprues.

 

DreamForge have the WW2 sets.

 

I'm not sure who, if anyone, has the Amazons or Shock Troopers.

 

PS: Nice work on the skellies!

They look fantastic!

 

The Warlord/Wargames factory thing had already been covered pretty well by other posters; the only thing i have to add is that, sadly, it seems as though Warlord is jacking up the prices on Wargames Factory stuff.

Well, with the Project-Z stuff they're putting less figures in the box, but they're including cards for the game.

I'm hoping that it will be possible to buy just the sprues, like with some of their historical stuff.

Wow.  Nicely done.  I really like the dynamic poses those pieces are in.  Usually skeleton miniatures are just standing around waiting to be chopped down by some passing adventurers.  These guys look like they're the ones who'll be doing the chopping . . .  I must track down a few of these figures.

      Finally! These were among the first miniatures I bought and the nucleus of my original undead army in the 90s. Over a year ago I decided that I ought to repaint them, and so began a saga of Simple Green, several starts and stops, and entirely too much procrastination...but finally now that the Leafening is done....

      A mixture of Grenadier (the standard bearer and champion with the freehanded shield), Heartbreaker (the ones with armor) and Mirlton (unarmored). The standard and shield emblems are those of Elizabeth Bathory. One of the first vampires I bought was the GW Isabella von Carstein and she had the Bathory vibe to her, so since I painted these as wights, I figure that they are her personal guard. 

      Kinda visible are the greenish tinge to the weapons and eyesockets to signify their wight-dom in a low key way.

      and here they are with the army thus far...

      10 pint-sized skeletons with eyeballs. Which is a bit strange as all the other soft tissue is long gone. Especially strange since the eyes are usually the first bits to go, eaten by crows (or by fish if you die at sea). Them eyeballs are scrumptious, it would seem.
      The minis are from the "Halflings and Fantasy Friends" kickstarter TTcombat ran late 2018 and that was delivered some time ago. I have painted ghosts and ghouls from this line earlier. They are all very cartoony and also rather cute.
       

      Three little swordsmen ...er, knifemen.
       

      Three little pikes. Two have build their holes of straw and of sticks. The third of bricks.
       

      And four archers.
      10 skeletons in all, from the "RPG pledge level" that basically gave a nice assortment of different types, either 5 or 10 of each.
       
      I used a mixture of regular paint and contrast paints on these. As always, they look better when not magnified. Some of the mould lines I simply have not noticed before, and now I see them glaring at me in the pictures. My eyesight is not what it once was.
       

      I printed out 20mm bases for the little rascals.
       
       
      Halflings Skeletons
      TTCombat 2018/2019
      Unknown sculptor
      Resin
      20mm bases
      Should be available from TTCombat in the future.
       
       
      These models were painted the 10th and 11th of April.

      Short Wart's Cohort Mort
       
      Being a band of bony retribution soon to cross the Brandywine and come a-knocking on little round doors under the hills.
       
      Most of these skeleton minis are from the same second hand purchase where I got the zombies that were featured a few week ago. I got the incomplete undead mammoth off Ebay several years ago, and Short Wart himself is an Oathsworn Halfling Necromancer. All minis have been given 3D printed bases, most of them 25mm.
       
      There are a lot of pics beneath, although some are distictly unfocussed, as if a dark power did not wish to be documented...

      Last few days of the second Triumph of Death kickstarter.  The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, new character minis, skeleton cavalry and foot units for a 28mm metal Renaissance-style skeleton army, inspired by the art of Peter Breugel, Holbein and Durer, with more than a nod to Minifigs' classic Valley of the Four Winds. 
       
      If you don't want wargaming units, there's a pledge level for one each of the core 13 models: they are the very definition of characterful. You can also get all the minis from the first kickstarter as add-ons.
       
      Among many gaming achievements, Thomas Foss is also responsible for the recent Medieval Killer Rabbits kickstarter, which went down well around these parts.
       
      Not affiliated in any way, but I backed the first KS, and all the minis were great, communication was excellent and delivery was prompt.  Well worth a look!
