imm0rtal reaper Guess who's back?!

Where have the last 7 months gone? I apologise for the serious lack of updates for the undead. After painting so many of them I'd grown tired of them and took a much needed break.

But i'm back. I recently received part 2 of my mantic kickstarter pledge, which contained a set of the new werewolves. I admit that when I first saw the pictures I wasn't impressed, but when I had the models in hand I thought they looked great. I'll probably pick up some more at some point too.





























Overall I'm reasonably pleased with how they turned out. They're pretty quick paintjobs too. I'm pleased with the bases also, I've been adding a lot more foliage and life to my bases to make them a little more interesting, and think it works well.

Next up I have the unit of skeletal samurai on the table so expect them soon!

C&C always welcome!

I did, I've been swamped with work and illness (huzzah for being in hospital for an ailment that can't be diagnosed!)

I've just finished a unit of soul reaver cavalry:









These guys were good fun to paint, I'm really happy with how the gold turned out. They're also really powerful in game, which is always a plus.

C&C is welcome and encouraged :D

imm0rtal reaper Happy new year one and all. I apologise for my lessened presence these last few months, I've just started a new job and have barely had a day off in like 7 weeks. But I have been slowly painting more undead, including this fellow:









I will be using this as a mhorgoth the faceless stand in. It really is an awesome miniature, so huge. It towers over all others as befits the greatest necromancer who has ever lived.

This month I'll be painting up a unit of soul reaver cavalry using perry men at arms. I've also still got something like 100 skeletons to finished, but lord knows when I'll get around to them

C&C is, as always, welcome.

Cheers guys. Kjell, in Kings of War individual casualties aren't removed so it's no problem, all your units can be mega dioramas :D

imm0rtal reaper So, I was adding some more details to the base when I realised I'd cocked up. A horde should be 10 bases across and 4 deep, this tray is 8 across 5 deep. Same number of "bases" but not game legal. I know I'd have no issues with this when playing with friends, but it means I couldn't take the base to a tournament (which I'm unlikely to do anyway)

So, I've added a couple of warriors, debris and a dead horse :D



Once the hard as nails is dry I'll add some sand and rocks and start figuring out how I'm actually going to fix the minis to the base

imm0rtal reaper Hot diggity damn folks, it's been a while.

So, while heresy was on holiday what have I been up to? Not a great deal to be honest. Most of my time has been spent painting zombicide, but I have made a start on a new unit for my undead:



The idea behind this base is that the metal chap (Isildur from the LotR line) will be stood atop a hill cutting down the swathes of zombies in a heroic last stand. I've been sculpting a hill from polyfilla and hard as nails and the foundation is almost there. Once it's sanded, had some accessories strewn about it, it should look quite nice.

And so that you don't feel cheated out of a real update, here are zombicide minis:







And some hasslefree survivors:








*Edit:

Started having a play with the configuration of the piece, getting a feel for how the minis are going to interact with one another. Started off just piling them on there and seeing what I ended up with:


Sorry for the blurry photo

An "action" shot



After staring at it for a minute I felt there wasn't a clear enough direction to the horde, no "front" so to speak. So I decided to make the minis that weren't on the hill all face forward and thin out the ones behind the warrior.


I apologise for the shaky pictures, I'll grab some better ones tomorrow (maybe)

In the fluff, this will be a High Marshal of the Order of Marius (my celestial force) who is killed during a battle against the undead. I'm going to add some slain warriors of minas tirith around the hill, broken spears shields and battlefield debris. I'm also thinking of sculpting in some little pools to put some water effects down to make puddles (maybe have a corpse near one so it's all bloody )
