Default I need Skeletons!

I'm in the process of creating a maquette and need skeletons. Ideally I want simple skeletons, without weapons or armour as the maquette is of a church interior and the skeletons will be used as wall reliefs.

Any idea where I could get such models? Obviously I have checked GW, but their range is far too 'battle ready' for what I want. I've checked amazon and conducted a general google search, but I keep getting redirected to GW. I'm not up on the other model suppliers, so perhaps they have what I need.

Any suggestions?

Well, the GW skeleton warriors box (5 models) has skeletons that are bare enough that I feel like getting rid of weapons wouldn't be that tough. Otherworld minis has a similar set (and another) that's a bit more expensive (and pewter) but shouldn't be bad for converting either. They also have a few sets without weapons (1, 2, 3). None of this is all that cheap unfortunately. I hope this helps, best of luck mate!

Try eBay, just had a look and somebody selling a few of the very old gw skeletons, I can't seem to get the link though. Also wargames factory sell very basic looking skeletons, advertised on Amazon UK but out of stock. Apparently warlord games sells their stuff

Maybe try looking for Dungeons and Dragons-esque stuff? I've seen some way-cool dungeon setups for games of that nature, I could see them needing skeletons as well.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Thanks for the help guys. You're all a month too late, but thanks for putting in the effort anyway. :-D

If that's the case did you accomplish what you set out to do?

Still needs some work, but the general idea is there. It was part of a stage design project.
