Yea nobody gonna cut those bases without breaking legs. Time to print some GW styled bases with a recess for integral bases.

Is it that shameful to glue the attached bases on top of a base and hide it with putty, static grass or flock?

I do that all the time with historicals, it lifts them up a bit to hide the size difference when mixed into a fantasy system. I still prefer models without an integrated base, it gives more options without additional work.

Not at all. That's usually what I do and it's not that hard (actually really easy), unless you're using custom resin bases.

Those metals look pretty snazzy too - think I might en up going in for the whole range at some point, I continue to like them more every time I see 'em!

It's just a minor annoyance really, but for my KoW multibasing I have more and more started using Welberg scenery mats. They are really nice for multibasing, but they dont really work with miniatures on integral bases unfortunately.

The only metal one I like is the necromancer with the skull staff and the book. No matter, as I will use plastic models from Frostgrave range for a characters anyway.

Great looking miniatures. I need to build an undead army too.

While not being massively blown away by the metal characters I think they're cool enough. I too like the necromancer the most.

Do we know if the chariots or heavy Infantry are also going to be in plastic?

Infantry (heavy/light) so far was plastic for all races so I doubt that they would change it for undead. As to chariots, they could as well be metal or resin being larger minis, as the dragon was resin. Still they could suprise us and make chariots in plastic which would be awesome.

Does anyone know if the Oathmark integrated bases fit into the Mantic recessed bases?

That still looks far preferable to removing the tab from spindly Skelly legs. Thanks for the detailed pictures.

Eldarain No problem! Using mantic bases never occured to me before. That's a good idea!

Think they go on pre-order sometime around Halloween. Getting released sometime in November.

This is the only Oathmark kit I've not really needed, as I've brought loads of the warlord games ones and I've a few of the newer standard skeletons from GW which I was going to use as heavy armour (the grave guard ones are stupidly over priced). But I've brought at least two of every oathmark kit so far, and I really like the armour on these ones. That box art is fantastic too. I'll have to get at least one, even if most end up as conversion material for champions etc to mix in with my others.

I had hoped that the metal characters would have been slightly more unique, but they are about what I'd actually expected from this release and they are still really good.

I sadly didn't get enough of my dwarf or goblin armies painted in time for this release, as had been the plan. I did pretty well but the pandemic totally buggered up my final year of uni so now I'm swamped to try and get everything done in time, so painting has had to take a backseat, but I did get a good amount of my undead painted in time for this is release, which was main goal. Can't wait for this book, hoping it included the chariot rules this time, but I don't think it does I think that will be Bane of Kings next year.

Oathmark continues to inspire me which each and ever release. I'm hoping that next year we see a lot of the kits that are meant to be coming that don't have other, easy alternatives. (Before I get distracted too much by StarGrave too!)

Great art on this skellies box. Hopefully the Oathbreakers will be packed with new and awesome art too, unlike Battlesworn which had only like 4 new and therest was from the rulebook.
