Army of Darkness

Ever since watching Army of Darkness as a kid I wanted to have my very own undead army.  I decided to take a stab at it and here are the first batch of figures.

They are 15mm figures from Splintered Light and Miriliton.  3 poses from each manufacturer.  They mix perfectly.  I've based them up as if ancients, four figures per element, on a 20x40 mm base from Renedra, with flexible sheet steel from Litko on the bottom.

They are just the start of the army that I have no idea when I'll finish.  I've got all kinds of melee and other baddies to go with them along with a whole mass of individually based guys for casualties, skirmishing, or running RPG's.  I picked these guys first because they had the least amount of gear to paint.

I mostly just used drybrushing to do them.  I used the Reaper Master Series Ivory Bone Triad for the bones.

I'm sort of "meh" on them.  I don't love how they turned out, but en masse I like them well enough and they are done.  If I did it again I think I would based 6 archers on a 40x40mm base in a more loose formation.  Thinking of that, I made up some 40x40mm bases with sheet magnet to help move them around and make them easier to pick up.

There you have it, finally out of the way, and off my painting table.  My very own groovy undead archers😉.

Thanks for looking.
