Well, actually blades or maybe spears, we'll have to see what makes sense when my copy of HoTT arrives. But I did manage to get 20 figures off the painting bench on the weekend. As I await reinforcements, I am cooking up a few more.
The command stand was pre-assembled by the last owner so all I did was paint and base.
I went with green after experimenting with a couple of different themes, including a washed-out mismash. I think I will do a mismash for the hordes stands but assumed these elite skeletons would be a bit more orderly with uniform colours (a household guard, perhaps).
Overall, these figures have nice details front and back. I believe they are plastic GW Tomb Kings. I have a couple of extra sprues that I'm fiddling with now to make a couple of magician types. Maybe with flowing robes and whatnot.
There are some nice shields in this set.
I did some wet-on-wet blending to get some interesting colour patterns.
I think they scale nicely against these Wargames Factory Romans.
Up next: I have assembled and primed the last 28mm Romans I need to complete the Marian/Polybian army so those will get painted soon. I am also working some magicians/heros for the Tomb King army. When a box arrives from Tim, I will put together some shooters, knights and riders--depending on what is in the box. By then some more 15mm commission work should have arrived.
