Still working on a project that require a lot of stamina, I'm treating myself with pauses like these guys that are just fun to paint.
Following my last post about the vampires, I actually lied. Bad I know.
It was for a good cause though, honest.
Amongst the many potential candidates for this warband I wanted to know which could actually fit in a Mordheim Roster (I know things are easier to shoehorn into a Frostgrave one).
I have to say I was quite astonished by the list actually and the limited choices I had : basically ghouls or zombies.
Now you can see below my zombies are those good old C18 Zombies of old. But then I really wanted to use the guys above. I've decided to use them as ghouls which aren't supposed to be dead (I know). I think these guys will be former servants that were offered eternal life for their loyalty (AKA eternal slavish obedience). Devil being in the details, they probably should have read the small lines...
The 2 miniatures on the left are actual Mordheim zombies (traded the others away foolishly) while the one on the right is your average headlss ghost from the night horrors range.
Painting wise, I've just used the very same palette as on the vampires without the pure black and without fancy stuff.
I have to say I'm a bit gutted by the OSL on the torch which looked excellent right before I varnished... That's life I guess, and it's not like it's the leader or anything, I won't complain if a mere ghoul is not at its top really.
I've traded some models to add some rotten meat to the band but it's already getting pretty pleasant now. There should be some fun additions soon. Only problem being I'm already starting to think in Dragon Rampant terms now...
Oh and by the way, here's what I've received today ...
2017 looks like it's gonna be fantasy heavy (in modelling terms at least)... Coud be worse I guess ^^'
