Good to see some undead from you! Great oldschool look, like always :) That skullhead is an interesting miniature and I like how menacing the robed one looks

Been a while, but it's Deadcember once again - the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

Back a while ago, I got a couple of triceratops toys in a package from Shadespyre. With just a bit of surgery, I think I've turned one of them in to a decent skeletal owlbear.

Onto Deadcember itself... I started with some reinforcements/summon-fodder for Maurice Delamorte. I found 8 more oldschool skeletons without skulls -- but that was remedied by my dwindling stash of skulls from Secret Weapon -- which look great on these old plastics!

The total (so far... unless more of the old plastics fall into my possession.)

My small artillery battery, oldschool models from Citadel and Grenadier.

And lastly (for now) some non-human skeletons and one of my favorite skeletal heroes.

@ZeroTwentythree Nice to see you back. Definitely paint more of those bog corpses - really nice work - their faces are freaky! I like those old school skellies too, nice seeing them painted up in black.

Beautiful work you've been doing lately, keep at it!

Thanks!

Painted a few more for Deadcember. One more dead thing I'd like to paint by the end of the 'cember.

I was travelling for work this week. Got into San Antonio airport around midnight, everything was closed & dark, turned the corner and war greeted by a Curtiss Jenny just hanging around.

Had a couple hours before my flight home, so got a chance to visit the Alamo for the first time.

Painted I painted some wheels for the undead. Crewed with Screamer because he had a look that seemed like he would most enjoy it. My last goal for Deadcember is to paint the remaining champions from the set (Reaper, Hellblade, and Longhorn.) Not sure I'll paint Morbius the liche, as I have no use for him and have had a hell of a time stripping the paint off that mini.

Awkward details on the floor of the chariot...

Thank you!


Not done yet. Stayed up to stupid o'clock Saturday night drunkenly painting these last two. At least now I have the satisfaction of having the full set of minis from the Skeleton War Machines box painted now that I've completed Morbius (on the right.)

I still have a bunch of bog corpses to paint, but needed five more right away for (hopefully) doing some gaming in the near future. They're so easy to paint I should just sit down and finish the rest. 35 more unpainted. Have a total of 50.

@ZeroTwentythree Nice war machines and hats off to you for getting all those done in December - I think you got more done in that month than I did for the year!

I use the same minis for zombies in my VC army, it's true that they're nice and easy to paint - get them done!
