Olethros could you post another close picture of that skeleton with the head wrap, 3rd in from the group of 4. That's exactly how I want to do my skeles, is it something you have converted?

Hi, Tarsus. I´ll try to find it in the glass cabinet and will post a close up asap. It´s not a conversion but an old GW model.

No problem, Tarsus. Glad to be of help.

Have you considered using green stuff or porcelanicron (not sure about the translation... it´s a special type of modeling clay...cold porcelain maybe?) in thin stripes to wrap the upper part of the skeleton to simulate the scarf?

I give you the legion of The White Wolf the northernmost outpost of the Vampire counts' vast holdings.

My skeletons! I did different wash treatments (i.e. black wash over white on some, bone color with sepia or black or red, etc) to make them look like were raised from different places/situations. However, my army colors are what ultimately unite them.

Very good looking skellies!

I like that each of your units is a little bit different in the colour tone of the blues/purples - I wonder how they look as an army - like Mad 'At already said, I also think you should start a plog and put all of this in a single thread and show us the whole army, bet it looks very cool ;)

Just finished up some Skeleton Archers for my Undead Legion. They're modeled with a gothic theme and basing so they'll match my Vampire Counts army.





I've got more detail pics and WIP pics on my blog.

Nice work silverstrike. I like the dark blue/purple, how did you paint that? Gives a nice way to tie the unit to other units that aren't made of bone.

All the best
