Since I was inspired by the new VC release I painted up some of my Heroquest undead. We'll see if I can make a warband out of it. The bases have been cut down to 20 mm. The skeleton conversions came out of necessity, since one had his scythe broken off, and the other was subjected to the indignity (by a previous owner) of being an experiment in "I wonder if acetone works to remove paint on plastic?". No
The spade blade is made from two old skaven spears.

Nice, classic colors. The silver edges on the skythes might be a little thick, but other than that...
I especially like your two converted Skeletons, you made the best out of them!

Nice to see the old heroquest figures again. Do you have any heroes for this warband?

Thank you!

Here is an old Witchking of Angmar, from last time GW had the LotR license. He's a potential warband member, depending on which rules I go with.





He'll get a bit of static grass later.

COOL LOOKING STUFF! Your brushwork makes the minis better than they would appear to be. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Good stuff! The mummies look good, but the winners are the zombies. Perhaps the crown of the Witch King could do with a repaint, it looks a bit blotchy, not up to your usual high standard...

@Nala: Thanks.
@folketsfiende: Hm, I don't see that... I did wash it with green and sepia, it's supposed to be old.

The Dead Men of Dunharrow are finished, I really like that old horseman with the tired old horse. Smile







Here is a converted old Wight King. It was missing it's sword arm, so I replaced it with a skeleton spear arm converted to a flag. The flag itself is from the plague monk box, with some conversions to the rat skulls and the bell chains. I sculpted his new shoulder armour. He also got an old shield, and a sword from the Mordheim accessory sprue.









I've used transfers on the banner and shield, and while I was at it I added a transfer to my ungor standard bearer.

VERY WELL DONE! All the Somewhat Deceased Lads turned out truly FANTASTIC...I really love the horse & his rider. thumbsup
The transfers worker very well; using decals/transfers is one of those skills I totally lack. What a Face

I agree mrtn, the horseman and horse, both seemingly tired, are wonderful minis - and you've painted them very well! Concerning the crown: maybe it's the sculpt, but it looks unelegant somehow. I'll take a look at it IRL sometime, maybe it's an illusion.

Ressurecting an old thread but the digging skeleton is just too awesome not to give some credit!

A big bow for the fantastic conversion! It really made my evening!

Hello, hello, hello! This is something I missed compleatly!

I love convertions that come out of necessity because they are often among the most creative. The skeletons I realy like, simple but effective and very fitting.

I like the old heroquest models. I think they are mong the best modeled figures from that time period But I have to say that the horseman is my absolute favourite, he looks like he realy didn't want to be resurrected.

Fitting with a bit of thread necromancy giving the featured warband, and since I missed it at the time I appreciate it, Alex.

So mrtn, any progress with this warband?

Those are wonderful miniatures... if such an adjective can be made to apply to the undead! I particlarly love the mummy and the horseman. Excellent paintjob and brushwork. I want to see more.

O love how you painted that herp-derp beastman, looks a lot like the art of warhammer (especially mordheim, and John Blanche, where the characters often look more grotesque and scary). Great work Smile
