These were painted with table top gaming in mind and most definitely not award winning standards.
Out of all the figures in the Undead army for some reason these are my least favourite which is why there are only two stands in the whole army. Can't say why I just don't like the figures much. Perhaps that is why the paint job was rushed on these as there is still time in the challenge to do more.
Now on to the Ninja, which came as a special request from Thursday's Minion JamieM who suggested that due to the Rule of Cool Ninja's top Romano Brits and guess what - they do.
The figures are from Dixon Miniatures and although older figures still have a huge amount of character and are well posed.
Some of the hands are a bit on the large side, that said this isn't a major issue when you consider the size of some weapons on other figures.
Have to say that not only black a sod to paint, its not easy to photograph under artificial lights as well. Some of the highlighting on the black is a bit lost in the pictures.
Although its not easy to see the black started as well black and then was layered with Vallejo Dark Grey and Foundry Charcoal B/C mix. The whole figure was then washed in a wash of Nuln Oil to a 1:4 ratio with water and Army Painters Quickshade Wash Mixing Medium to knock the highlights back a bit.
The hex bases fit in with previous Ninja painted and as they will be mostly used for skirmish gaming a hex is as good as a circle. Contentious or what.
