I painted up 3 units of skeleton warriors. I really wanted these 3 units to look like a horde so I opted to put 26 figures on each stand. One of which is the Necromancer in charge. You don't think these skeletons would just form up in rank and file on their own do ya? I had determined with my first units that this army's colors would be purple and yellow and the coat of arms would be a 1/4 yellow moon and a star. So all the shields with enough space has either stars or the moon and star combination.
And the group shot...
So what are those big bones back there you ask? Catapults!
I still had some time left for painting, but nothing in my ready to paint queue seemed to fit this theme. So I pulled some Reaper Bones skeletons out of my lead pile that I plan to use for Dragon Rampant or Open Combat. This was my first time painting any of the Reaper plastics, as I generally buy the metals. There were 6 total, but I honestly just didn't like the soft bendy plastic so I stopped at three. I'll get some more skeletons, but I'll shoot for metal for now on.
No matter what they try to tell you. Size matters...
|I believe your catapults were some friends of mine...|
So that comes out to...
3 skeletons @ 28mm
88 skeletons @ 10mm
2 catapults @ 10mm
