Reviewing my collection I decided to ditch the very old skeletons I’d painted up some 25 years ago for WHFB as they were on square bases, with old style flock.

This meant I had to find some replacements. Some would come from the Cultist plastic frame, but I was all set to go get some of the Mantic steles when…having to clear out more stuff so I could get my car into my parents’ garage, I found some very old Citadel skeletons.

from the original plastic kits from the late 1980’s.

Came up a treat, so just need a few more, and then some armoured ones and I’m done.

I also found some piles of bones and skulls, that i quickly knocked up and put onto bases as objectives/event markers.

    By chance yesterday I’d dug out a cheap eBay job lot of 1991 skeleton sprues because one of my D&D players keeps resurrecting corpses to use as bait. Glued, painted, and washed 3 last night. I hope mine look as splendid as yours! x

    Much like my other wandering monsters I kept the the dead grass as most befitting. 🙂

    Ok the kiss was a bit over the top (got distracted replying with family at the same time – can’t multi/thinktask 😀) but

    It also seems my internet connection is dodgy too. Will investigate!
