Almost late (which would, admittedly, have been apt for the undead), I finally got my unit of skeletons finished. Well, almost. I'll come to that later.
Here we go, pictures or it didn't happen:
And then a close-up of the boss:
I really like these Black Tree Design skeletons. In fact I ordered some more in their 50% New Year sale... I decided to have them advancing through a fairly lush landscape to contrast with their living-impaired status, and may have overdone it slightly.
Oh yes, I was going to explain why they weren't quite finished. No, it's not that I haven't varnished them (although I tend not to except for fantasy football miniatures that get individually handled, put on their side etc.), but that I have had a little trouble with the flag:
I'd picked up some of the old sticker banners that GW made back in the last century but it turns out I'm rather crap at applying them! You'll probably have noticed the rather lumpen flag pole being carried by the banner bearer (a very quick chop and extend with a bit of wire and some putty job), but I wasn't too worried as I knew the flag would hide it. I just need to get it to stick in place! A task for a quiet half hour, I think, and I've got one of those in my diary sometime in early June...
That's it for Deadcember for this year, but with Zhu's excellent artwork and a prize I have planned, it will be be back bigger and deader than ever in 2016!
Over the next week I shall put together the obligatory review of 2015/plans for 2016 post but, until then, have a very happy new year,
