Lets see, call it 70 skeletons for easy math, 14 days is... 5 a day. Done to the 3ft rule (looks fine at 3 ft) that seems doable. It will be hard and you probably wont even want to see a skeleton for the following month but we have faith in you!

Warlord Games skeletons ok? Hmm the Wargames Factory versions were the only kit I ever looked at and immediately gave up on seperaye feet and horribly spindly arms to start with.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

@Syro, thanks the skellies are coming on great. They're currently all washed, do just need weapons and armour doing. Then they are to be based.

@Chaoticmind, can't argue with your math. But it is 11 skinwolves, a necromancer and then 100skellies. 30 of which are still on the sprue. But it is very achievable with my basic paint job. Thanks.

@Stormatious, Thanks for the kind words. Keeping me motivated to get an entire army together.

@Llamahead, These are the wargames factory skellies. Warlord bought the rights to them I guess. At first the feet were a pain. But honestly when I set it all up into a production line it was easy.

Hope you've all had a great weekend, I'll have more to show today!

Also here's the list I'll be taking, we were allowed to take units from other books as mercenaries as a rare choice. It seemed appropriate to me to take maneaters as with the exception of the dogs of ear book, the biggest mercenaries going.

Spoiler:

+ Lords +

Master Necromancer [245pts]: Lore of the Vampires, Master of the Dead, The General of Undeath, Wizard Level 4
Magic Items: BRB - Dispel Scroll

+ Heroes +

Tomb Banshee [95pts]

+ Core +

Skeleton Warriors [240pts]: Champion, Musician, 42x Skeleton Warrior, Standard Bearer

Skeleton Warriors [255pts]: Champion, Musician, 45x Skeleton Warrior, Standard Bearer

Skeleton Warriors [130pts]: Champion, Musician, 20x Skeleton Warrior, Standard Bearer

+ Special +

Crypt Horrors [238pts]: Champion, 6x Crypt Horror

Crypt Horrors [200pts]: Champion, 5x Crypt Horror

Grave Guard [470pts]: Champion, Musician, Standard Bearer
40x Grave Guard: 40x Shield

++ Total: [1,873pts] ++

Maneaters [426pts]: 6x A Brace of Ogre Pistols, Bellower, Champion, Poisoned Attacks, Sniper, Standard Bearer
6x Maneaters: 6x Heavy Armour

Maneaters [197pts]: 2x A Brace of Ogre Pistols, Great Weapon, Swiftstride, Vanguard
3x Maneaters: 3x Heavy Armour

++ Total: [623pts] ++



I'm sure it'll be an enjoyable weekend with three good games!

Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'all's neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell

It feels like an age since I've posted in here. Sadly I had to go back to the old work place and sort some problems out which would of been fine if I'd managed to take some paints with me alas. It's been weeks without the paints and toys.

Tonight was the first time in nearly 2months I've been able to paint and with that time I though some paint on some human characters which will be used in my dogs of war army. I'm going for a very neutral look. Hopefully they still look characterful

@Syro, glad you like the necromancer. I think my next one will be a generic looking necromancer instead of an all mighty master of the dead.

@Mallo, I think most of the new stuff can be encorporated into the existing range with square bases. For the most part they tower above, which is cool as it demonstrates there powers.

I like the merceinaries, a mix of oldhammer and what is now middlehammer.

I think the old guy still has more character.

Cheers kid Kyoto,

I think they've both got character. I prefer the old mini as you can just see the story behind him getting to the battlefield would be one full of adventure, heartache and revenge.

Painted another few metals up. One from the Albion campaign. Easily one of my favourite campaigns as its set around my blighted isle. Haha.

I've also started on a griffon which will be used using the storm of magic/ monstorous arcanum rules. Looking forward to putting tiger stripes or spots on him.

Fantastic work on the undead, they really look the part and it is interesting seeing how the old mixes in with the new. Quite surprisingly, it does seem to work

Glad to see you back! While I admit that there is a lot of charm to many of the ... more obviously classic minis that gryphon just isn’t doing it for me. I think it’s just the sculpt and hopefully the finished paint job will save it.

Good Morning,

@IGtR=, Much appreciated, i think the kits merge quite well. I've got the new black coach which will be in the mix shortly so hopefully something new there as well.

ChaoticMind, I know what you mean. I bought it for a tournament next year where you can use the monster rules from storm of magic and while the model is a bit dated, it cost me £10 and the only other griffon I've seen which i liked cost £30 plus postage. Maybe when it's all painted up and looking better than it currently is it might change your mind

The Riddle of Steel, thanks there's still more skeletons to get through. I've just put together 30 archers, 30 spearmen and another 30 swordsmen. I just need to get the motivation to paint them.


In other news, I tried my 3D printer last night to try and make some undead ogres. I found a 28mm skeleton and printed it at 150% scale which should be about the right size. I'll see when I get home.



regards,
Howie.

Hi howie,
Great old skelliebobs mixed with new necromancer! Is he stable on the tiny base or does he get magnetised/blu-tac’d To the movement tray?
I think you were right that the main sculpt is the same as Stormwing that I just tarted up, though the wings are clearly different and the head on yours seems ever so slightly larger. I seem to recall an Empire Griffon released at a similar time, that was slightly different. Perhaps that’s the one you’ve bought?
I’m quite biased but like the griffon so far, though it seems there are much more dynamic ones out there now! I was tempted to try my hand at tiger stripes on mine, but haven’t yet plucked up the courage, is that your plan for the hind quarters?

Hi Gobert,

Definite similarities with the griffon, probably the same sculptor. The plan is either Tiger stripes or some sort of leopard spots. Unsure at the moment, I've seen many great examples of both, going to try some leopard spots on the old undead giant bats and see how they look. Then I'll make my choice from there.

The master necromancer is indeed magnetised to the base, I think without it he'd fall on the skellies and see out his battles that way.

Thanks for the nice comments, I will try and have an update this evening.

Good morning all,

Here is a little additional to the midnight army. A unit of 25 spearmen. 15 more to go. Initially I didn't really like the shields, but I couldn't find any other shields which I preferred to use.

Any thoughts? They're obviously not based yet.

I wonder if the creators were trying to go for the ancient Greek phalanx look? I see what you mean, something feels a little off about the shields, but in all honesty they look fine

Not been feeling it recently. However, on Friday I got news of my Kickstarter order from fireforge being posted. I then got the motivation needed to finish the undead army to make way for my new incoming army.

To that end then, here's two mourguls I've been working on this afternoon, they'll be used as my Varghulfs for an upcoming tournament.

I then went and did the first bit of basing on the spear skellies. Just need to add the snow to the base to finish them off.

I then went and sprayed another 45 skeletons and washed them ready for doing the weapons. A real bang to end my weekend of hobby progress.

@syro, oh I think they're definitely based on dead Greeks! I'd just rather they were Vikings or some medieval Nation.

Hello everyone,

Today I've had some bats turn up. Hoping to breath some fresh air into the giant bats. The swarms are from the reaper bones range. Very happy with the look of them. Will see how they perform on the table in a few weeks. Haha.

Thanks for looking!

With the delivery of my fireforge Kickstarter and my skeletons coming to an end but not finished I have moved onto humans!

I'lll be doing one sleeve yellow and one sleeve green and the rest of the model in browns.

Also before I started this new venture I left my skellies in good spirits, while not managing to win the tournament in any shape or form I did get most sporting, so damn happy with that!

Congrats on the award! IMHO I think that's a much better award to win than a traditional victory in a tournament. Human pikeman is looking good too.

Cheers Syro,

I completely agree as I've won more of these than I have #1 spots.

I'm enjoying playing with the fireforge models. Not massively convinced by any of these so far. Think I'll be spraying the main bodies black and drybrushing, them with a dark grey while painting the rest with contrasts.

Good evening folk!

Been fairly busy as of late with life. Been training for and competing in a half marathon.

However upon my return today I picked up a brush and through some colour on what will be my Merchant Prince or equivalent character.

But I'll show him off after I've finished his pin stripe yellow and green trousers.

Here is one of the two wall breakers for my gathering army.

Hope you like it. Thoughts??
