The Mantic undead trolls are massive beasts (those bases are 40mm) caught in a constant state of regeneration and death by necromantic magics. You don't want to mess with these...
The skeleton horde grows further with three swordsmen. The one good thing about the plastic is that a bit of hot water will allow for some tweaks to pose. For these three I just adjusted the arm position so they vary a bit.
Finally are three archers. Possibly my least favourite models in the Dungeon Saga undead range. Despite being reposed a few times, they keep on bending back into slightly wonky poses, but I suppose they are gangly skeletons... so it works.
So this is another 6 models towards the DS side challenge, and 9 towards the Frostgrave challenge. I'm not sure how many points the trolls are worth. Up to you Curt ;)
Nothing says Christmas like a shambling passel of undead. Once again you've done wonderful work Paul. Those trolls doing their calisthenics look very nasty indeed - I'll score them as 40mm figures.
This desiccated bunch will come in at 51 Points.
"Nothing says Christmas like a shambling passel of undead" I take it you have met some of my relatives then!ReplyDelete
As for the figures Fantastic!
Very nice painting work, very interesting figures, too.ReplyDelete
Those trolls are impressive! All are well painted great jobReplyDelete
Spooky. I really like what I see of Mantic, and now that I have the Dragon Rampant rules I'm considering some of their fantasy figures. You make them look good.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I've found the Dungeon Saga Mantic models to be much nicer than their normal fantasy range so far; though this is entirely personal preferenceDelete
Loving the undead. Seeing those archers does make me worry about my own rebasing efforts.ReplyDelete
I gave the archers a poke and they seem fairly stable/secure on the bases, even if their feet are a bit twisted... so you should be okDelete
Great bunch of undead, seeing some good work again this yearReplyDelete
Great job with the skin and bonesReplyDelete
Never seen undead trolls before. I really like what you did with them, especially the skin tone.ReplyDelete
Forgeworld did some Warhammer undead/plague trolls a few years ago, so it's not the newest of ideas... but Dungeon Saga's ones are really nice models and significantly cheaper than the GW ones ;)Delete

But then, a small car is cheaper than most of GW's stuff these days...Delete
Great work on those undead, Paul. You really nailed the skin tones!
Very thematic, the trolls skin and guts and the rust on the skeletons swords, they are some lovely looking minis!ReplyDelete
Love those trolls!ReplyDelete
Really good work on them all, Paul! I'm really partial to the trolls though. It's that whole get-of-my-lawn vibe they got going on! ;)ReplyDelete
Very nice work Paul :)ReplyDelete
Superb effects on all these figuresReplyDelete
