Those are all old Citadel, mid to late 80's i'd guess, a few are from their old Marauder range.

Here are my Skellies. It's a shame spears are kinda useless on the tabletop. They really do look nice though.



This dude's my favorite of the bunch. I took the pic before he was based.



Yet another Skeleton. This one shows you some detail on the shield.

dimihamzu - scorched brown base, worked up with bestial brown and then I think it was bestial brown mixed with some Kommando Khaki. Can't quite remember - I just worked with it until I got an OK result. Was thinking of trying different techniques with my skellys to give them more of a ramshackle and less uniform look.

Ado skellys are awesome love the rust effect and the deep red colors.

Roc they are beauties from start to end, your choice of colors are stunning to say the least.

OOOK its hard to follow the skeles already posted because they're all great lol. While my paint jobs aren't as good I love them anyway because I gave a bunch of them their individual flairs just like you all did. You can do so much with skeletons which is why I love using them.

Things to note: You'll see a bunch of yellow skeletons in the back, thats because when I was "Undead" I was going for a desert theme with a lot of mummies and such.... so I wanted them to be bleached bone..... and I sucked at painting back then :tongue:

Here we go:

Does a foot count as an extra hand weapon?

And who said standards had to be flags?
