Thanks all! The project was initially only going to be just a little bit off-beat, but didn't get crazy until after I started painting. I blame the February blues/cabin fever. I figure I have a solid undead army already, plus I've got a couple of other "sub-factions." So I could afford to make this one a little more.... unusual. 🤪


That's one unique and colorful looking army, I love it!
From the lively bases to the Rainbow Unicorn and Flamingo mounts...just exquisite. 😁
Also nice looking blends all around, and bonus points for the Donovan reference. 😉

Thanks. Donovan was the inspiration for deciding on an undead faction for my OWAC project this year. I was debating between an oldschool (3rd edition) mixed-race Chaos force or Dogs of War in preparing late last year. It was around Halloween and "Season of the Witch" kept playing a lot on the Haloween stream we has playing in our dining room most nights. I started thinking about a strange concept of an "overlord" who recruits/animates/summons their sub-commanders and unwittingly brings a hippie-liche into his fold. Season of the Liche or "When you've made your mind up forever to be mine" (from Sunshine Superman) I figured I was on to something. 🤣

Great to see you posting again!

That's certainly a unique army. I love the rainbow mane steed.

That would be "Rainbow Death". 😆 An odd toy I found a couple years ago in a clearance bin after Halloween.

Time for April's OWAC update! This month was my Wild Card entry. We're required to have four rank & file entries, one leader entry, and anything goes for the other.

I've been hunting for the old '80s plague cart for years, but have never been able to find a complete one for a reasonable price. So I decided to build my own. I had planned on building everything from scratch, including the driver. But just as was starting to sculpt my own driver I recieved a surprise from Shadespyre in the mail -- the driver from the original model! I had painted the face on the driver as a joke and intended to paint over it. But after looking at it for the better part of a month, it's grown on me and I've decided to leave it for now. I've had a Dia de Muertos inspiration with attempted marigold flowers, explained on the OWAC site (link below).

I had a sudden fit of painting inspiration and decided to paint the Reaper zombie dragon that I had planned on painting for the Deadcember challenge a couple years ago, but has sat on my desk since then. This was honestly a really basic paintjob, but the awesome sculpting really makes any paint look good. (Sculpted by the legendary Julie Guthrie!) Very happy with with how it turned out.

Also, our garden and yard are getting increasingly necromantic.... The Halloween skeleton has become a permanent fixture, now getting decorated for each season. (Bunny ears slid down in this Easter photo.) Plus we've got a pair of Zombie Flamingos in the front garden now.

More minis, photos, and commentary including reanimated OWAC members, hot-dog monuments, and "sexy wraith" at the actual OWAC entry: ZeroTwentythree's April Undead (250 pts)
