up to 25

WOW, its been two months since my daughter was born. What better way to celebrate than posting some pictures of the latest models Ive painted??
Here is the first infantry unit for the undead. My sword and board skeletons are up to 25! Only 15 more to go for this unit. After that either spears and sheild or something fun like a Zombie dragon or finish my corpse cart...we shall see.
Anyway, ENJOY!

Skeletons on parade!

Got the first ten skeletons done. Kamilla doesn't fit in the ranks so good with her scythe, so I have also started to put together a scenic base that includes a low tombstone to accomadate the weapon. The next ten are waiting on the leather and then the washes and the rust and the base get done. No baby = done tonight. Baby = maybe another week of work.
Hope you like the skeletons, let me know what you think.

I am also putting together another tutorial that includes a step by step of my skeletons.

Kamilla Von Strig

GW does not make very pretty women figures. Casting a man with boobs does not equate a female figure worth collecting and spending time painting, so instead I looked to a line of models that understands how to make these kinds of models right...Malifaux. I have removed the hammer head and replaced it with a scythe blade...apart from that and the base she is pretty much straight from the box.
I first converted the model several years ago to be the Vampiress to a Mordheim undead warband, and just recently finished her off. She will be one of the Vampire characters to my army. Too bad GW stores and tournaments dont like you to use these kinds of models. THANK GOD for the fact that I prefer informal gaming in the basement with friends or my non GW game store.
Anyway, ramble is done, enjoy.

Waves of Undead

I got a few more of my undead finished. The new bases really make for a better looking and completed feel to the army. I was also able to get much clearer pictures of my second zombie Ogre.
 Keep reading to see more pictures of the Zombie Ogre AND the newly based Black Knight. I love that unit!!
