Nice work Reap! my only comment would be that the silver on his weapon looks a little too clean and bright for a recently unearthed undead guy. Maybe a Devlan/Badab wash to dull it down a bit. Other than that looking great buddy!

I agree with Midge, the only thing I would say different is the whole thing looks a little too "clean". I like the colour scheme and the overall look of the model, just needs a bit of grave dirt on him.

Echo x 3. This is the one set of models that I like from Mantic.

Cheers guys, I haven't decided if I want to dirty up the force yet. But I'll dull the weapon down at least

Also, an army showcase for this force just went live. I'd greatly appreciate it if people could head over and comment/rate it :D

Cheers folks.

It's very nice to see something a bit different to 40k and little bits of Warhammer Fantasy on this log pages. So seeing a Mantic undead force is cool!

Nice work mate, the blues and reds remind me of peasants from Brettonians! Very nice scheme, and will make for a awesome force.

Keep up the nice work mate, it's great to see!

Nalgar walked amongst the dead, stepping over their broken bodies as though picking his way through a flower garden, careful not to spoil any of the plants. He paused over a slain Elf and knelt down beside it. He took the head in his hands and moved the mouth.
‘Lovely weather,’ Nalgar said in a high voice, mimicking the Elf.
‘Mmm yes. I do enjoy the rain,’ he replied in his usual tone.
‘Say, would you be so kind as to help me up?’
‘Why of course,’ he sprang to his feet, ‘let me help you.’
With a surge of magical energy Nalgar raised the dead Elf. It stood before him, its wounds still weeping, but oblivious to them.
‘There, is that better?’ He asked. The Elf did not reply.
‘Hmm,’ Nalgar grunted, leaving the Elf standing there, perfectly still. ‘Ra’s,’ he shouted, hopping over the corpses, ‘I don’t like these Elves. They’re rude!’
‘What shall we do with them?’
‘Raise them, and then get rid of them for good,’ he chuckled, ‘don’t want those pesky Elf souls sticking around do we?’
‘No my lord. I will instruct the others.’
‘Good, bring me the body of their general though. I could do with another foot rest for the evenings.’

Duh dun uh nuh!

Update time merry travellers!

I’ve finished my first 10 revenants and overall, I’m pretty pleased with them. They’re not perfect, but I think they look pretty good.













For the rest of the army though, I will be base coating everything before any washes are applied. I did it in stages for these guys and the waiting between washes was insane.

Also, good news! Wayland have finally shipped my undead army and it should be here Monday morning. So this log is about to kick off big time!

I'd also be grateful if people could head over to my army showcases and comment and rate!

Red scorpions

Mantic Undead

Until Then!

Excellent work dude, even tho they arent GW figs, they def have a Bret. undead look to them.

I look forward to seeing this log kick off and wish you the best as you progress!

Wow looking good Im. You are a painting and modelling machine!

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Thanks Wraith. Being unemployed definitely helps lol. It's really nice to be painting something other than GW, its a nice chance. I'm going to make a human army out of my minas tirith warriors that I can't sell lol.

Looking really good

you got rid of that overly "clean" look you had going early on and they look fresh from the grave and ready to fight. I'm looking forward to seeing more of these dead guys.
