Throughout this army I have used a basic colour scheme and tied the army together with flashes of red or yellow ochre. The figures have all been washed in Army Painters strong tone and then lightly dry brushed with Foundry Bone B & C.
Unless otherwise stated all figures are from Alternative Armies.
A single Wight being used as a minor hero.
An option for the army General in Basic Impetus Fantasticus is to be mounted on a chariot. No chariot runners here although the general does have the company of two undead Carrion Birds.
A stand of archers to be used as sharp shooting skirmishers.
Below a stand of Wraiths from Essex Miniatures. There are only six here as the other two are on household duties at present. The excess flock will need yet another brushing to take it off these figures.
More Wights this time en masse.
A camp stand with a leadership debate to music and a small graveyard curtesy of Essex Miniatures. This stand will again be for use in Basic Impetus Fantasticus.
The shambling hordes of zombies that no Undead army would be right without.
42 15mm infantry - 84 points
1 15mm vehicle - 6 points
6 15 mm grave stones - 3 points
This takes my running total (subject to the judges approval) to 239, still short of my challenge target but well on the way to finishing on a pass.
Still to come some 2mm WW2 armour and 28mm Romano Brits. Looks like the Ninja and Trojans will have to wait again.
Very nice indeed! I really have enjoyed this dusty horde coming together and it's really nice to see the more unusual elements being represented. The Wights are great, but that chariot is superb. The camp scene looks like great fun and here's hoping your enemy doesn't ransack it too often!
I'm going have to disallow the gravestones as they're either terrain or just basing I'm afraid, but I'm then going to round up the points for that lovely chariot and the relaxed looking carrion birds to give a nice round 95 points..... and did you say Ninjas were an option for your next painting choice?!?!?!? But instead you're likely to be painting Romano-British? Any chance I could start a petition to get Ninja in there instead? Why? The Rule of Cool of course! Ninjas beat pretty much everyone in those stakes (except perhaps pirates and cool aliens of course.....) Totally up to you of course though Ross ;)
