Hello folks, I have a little post to share with you today – I haven’t had too much hobby time lately what with one thing or another, but I did manage to make a start on the recent Dungeon Monster Kickstarter from Johnny Lauck. The KS was to produce a range of undead (both skellibobs & zombies) from different fantasy races – each race covered by a different sculptor. I got a double batch of each, very much with Frostgrave in mind, and got cracking with my first eight. Paint-wise, they are all mostly painted with various washes, followed by drybrushing – nothing fancy or demanding here :-)
First up we have ‘Dead Sonja’ by Faron Betchley. She’s a lovely little sculpt, one of the best of the bunch, and I could have gone in to much more detail here if I wasn’t pushed for time:
Next up we have the ‘Ranger Skeleton’ by Nadrav Igra. Again, this is one of the best of the bunch, with a nice pose & detail. I’m reading this as an Elf:
Thirdly we have the ‘Goblin Skeleton’ by Leandro Ventic. This is probably one of the more bizarre sculpts in the set – light on detail, and why would a skeleton have ears and a nose?? Still, he’s good fun and quick to paint:
Finally we have the ‘Dwarf Skeleton’ by Bob Olley. This is classic Bob – big head, and loads of detail should you want to spend the time on it. This guy also comes up a bit big within the context of the group, if you care about such things:
And here we have the four plus their dupes – quite the group I hope you will agree!
Next time I’ll share the other half of the Skeletons with you – a lot of the ink washing is already done on them in a batch-paint stylee, so hopefully not too long to wait. Catch you from the graveside!
