Shadespire skeletons

Recommended Posts

I crossed over to the global beast from Nottingham to buy these, they were at a trade show on a deal. Néed to paint some Reaper figures for balance, maybe the Bog skeletons from Bones 4. 

 

Vallejo bone primer all over, which was hard to do as it was the exact colour of the unpainted plastic minis. Then an Army Painter Strong tone wash all over everything. Then I did Mirage blue cloaks and shields, and sand and off white wraps and rags. The weapons are Army Painter Old Iron. The bones were not dry brushed, I tried to carefully (for me) paint highlights with Army Painter Skeleton Bone. I seem to have been helped with some very literal paint names on these. 

 

In terms of assembly these were very easy as they essentially snap together. All I would say is that this limits converting a bit as you don't have a sprue of heads, arms etc to muck around with and swap. Would recommend these though and they are one of the better value sets as you get seven models.

I totally read the title as "Shakespeare skeletons". Now I'm wondering when they're going to start performing :poke:

Nice Skeletons!

I especially like the one rising from the ground supporting himself with that bone.

Thanks everyone. The sculpts do look cool and minimal effort to make them. I remember the old plastic skeletons that used to get covered in glue, these are nothing like that. 

 

They could be used for a revisionist version of Hamlet I suppose...

      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...

      Here you go, folks, my second of the four Warhammer warbands I've got (Here's the first). When I first started painting these, I was a bit worried about them looking just like a blob of gold, but I must say, I'm quite pleased with how the colors look. And that bird... That bird is my favorite. I tried speckling its breast and around its neck, but it just looks blotchy. Oh well.

      So, a coworker and fellow painter gave me a bunch of unwanted Warhammer Underworlds Shadespire minis, so uh... Guess that's mostly what you guys will be seeing from me in the near future!
       
      As I'm just naturally inclined to orcs, and these guys look absolutely awesome, I painted Ironskull's Boyz first. Also, finally got my hands on some premade washes, so I ditched homemade watered down paints on these. Personally, I think it made 'em look pretty good!


      The number of ants that tried to photobomb this shot was ridiculous.
       
       
      The lighting on the individual shots was being weird, so sorry if some are darker and other lighter!

      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.

      These models were painted the 10th and 11th of April.
