I was able to basically stipple a couple of shades of green over a brown base coat. Not a dry brush, but more of a dry 'dab' with a stiff brush.

These really look great. I like the variations in the helmets. Nice touch.

I would like to know, how were they as far as putting them together? Much difficulty? You said these were the reissued - designed set, did you ever build any of the first run series?
Only asking because I intend to order in (hope the not too distant) future, some to go with my Zombies. (Vikiing Bondi for now but in time Saxon Fryd also). After all as Ive said "how can you have an Undead Army and 'not' have Skeletons?

I hope to see more of these in the future. Againg Great Work

Jack007 - These skeletons were made previous to the re-tooling. They have just been sitting on my shelf for a few years. They were not easy to keep together. Each stage of construction and painting led to a few 'casualties' where I had to re-glue. Ultimately I switched to superglue w/catalyst, and that worked better, but I still fear for their 'roadworthy-ness'. I have a feeling they will always be fragile.

Lord_Bryon- I used helmets from the plastic Immortals Miniatures Classical Greeks. I picked them for a couple of reasons. 1. Because you can't see the face because the helmet openings are super small. and 2. Because their set came with like 70+ heads, but only 32 bodies (or something like that). So I wasn't going to be missing anything when I cannibalized the parts.

Here's a whole box of the pre-remastered skeletons that I just put together. I kit-bashed them against the immortal mini's classical greeks for the helmets and the decals. I think it turned out perty good.


nice. 8-)

I finally took some pictures of my D&D skellies. These are made primarily with the WGF skeleton set. With some bits from mantic mixed in.

Here are a couple of group shots.

and some warriors, my favorite is the one with the axe but I'm proud of the shield on the swordsman. It used to be a saxon shield that was cut up liberally.

Some Skellies next to some Mantic Zombies. They scale perfectly in my opinion.
