The best thing about super cheap sprue of stuff is that you can just do weird stuff without worrying about how much it cost.


Nicely done! That gives me some ideas....

that's good news, even if you don't use them as skeletons, they're ideal for basing stuff

If they are like the samurai, then the sprues will be slightly changed. It’s pictured with 24 skeletons instead of 30 as it is.

I really like that these are plain skeletons (no rags or armour on parts) makes them much quicker to paint in large numbers.
But I always found them really fiddly to put together, the waist joint is a tiny contact point but has to support a lot of the models weight.
Look good once done, and give that Jason and the argonaughts feel with their Greek style weapons.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

There is a orc box set as well (which is weird as they were selling off the orc sprue in their sales during the year).

Both of them are coming out in support of a new Rick Priestley game...

Helllllooooo Skeletons! I was waiting for Warlord to bring these back. They're great as a source for plain bone decoration for all sorts of things. Sadly I only managed to get a single box before Wargames Factory went down. Been a long wait.

IIRC they also got the Shock Troopers, they weren't great models, but it was a fun set.

Depends on what Warlord asks for them. At thrice the original price, the Shocks Troops won't be much fun.

I wonder if they have been retooled to not be so damned fiddly, the originals were such a pain.

And that is the real question too. What will Warlord ask for these?

If I remember correctly the Apocalypse Survivors' price nearly trebled, when you accounted for reduction of numbers and price increase. I'm hoping they don't do that here...

I am always interested in more skeletons, and have wanted some of these for a while. Being plain means that you can convert them any which way you might like. But also because they come with open right hands, which is fantastic if you want to make conversions.

They are smaller and more spindly than other skeleton miniatures, which is troubling, so I'll have to see how they turn out.

The Shock Troops have cool coats and face masks, but the anatomy and posing are certainly not the best. They are fine for generic scary bad guys in various sci-fi skirmish games though. And yeah I would not pay a lot for them, the ones I got were something like $0.7 per model.

Same. Would really like to finish off my Tomb Kings and the rags on Mantic skellies don't look the part. But I'm not paying 15 quid for 10.

Hopefully they'll still be low-cost - even beyond my undead army, I've found unadorned-bones skeletons tremendously useful. Especially now that I'm working on Fallout terrain and I don't have much of my original stock of WGF sprues remaining.

Hopefully. A price increase over Wargames Factory is inevitable, but maybe the skeletons will be a horde unit in that fantasy game and priced accordingly.

Both those and the Orcs are at £20 for 24 models. Not worth it in my opinion. Equally Wand Action definitely has my interest!

The Orcs are some of my favorites. I will probably buy some more at some point. Their hands aren't great, but their faces and proportions are fantastic.

Probably some Amazons, too, eh?

What does 24 pounds translate to in USD according to Warlord? $30? $35?

It seems like a mistake to charge more than $1 per skeleton.

You get bases too Bob , but a quick look on their web page and switching back and forth on currencies had a £23.50 box being $38.00.

There will most likely be cards, dice, tokens etc.

That's just terrible. On the plus side, in two years they might be selling the sprues for $1.50 each...

Yup, that's when I think I'd want to pick them up. At the price they are asking it's too much. Oh well.
