More skellies!

Time to start the next phase of my insanely long term plan about HeroQuest (Stage 3, I believe?)
I'm adding a few modern (but old style looking) minis to my ranges. Not sure if adding, replacing or whatever, I only know I saw these Otherworld Skeletons and I knew I wanted them:

You came to the wrong neighbourhood, dungeon thief!
I'm so gangsta I even wear a hoodie
Not that this is much of a show, but these minis are quite lovely to me. In fact, I've felt the unsettling desire of building up an Undead force. No purpose at all, just the mere thought of oh, how nice would it be having a horde of skeletons. The 'ooh, shiny' effect, I presume.

If I ever dare, here it is the beginning
For the moment they are just for HeroQuest. Only future will tell what else can happen...

    1. Thank you! Shields have nice sculpts, they look old and painting them is quite easy, they add a nice touch to the skeletons.

    1. Haha, thanks! Fashion among the Undead is always an issue, they want to look badass for the rest of their lif...their existence. :D

  4. Me encantan Suber, un buen trabajo. estas miniaturas son de Bones?, ahora no estoy seguro pero creo que las estuve mirando hace un tiempo y son muy bonitas, y si que despiertan el gusanillo por los sacos de huesos...

    Un saludo.

    1. ¡Gracias! Son de Otherworld. Una marca que no es barata, pero tiene unas miniaturas sensacionales, echa un ojo a su web, no te arrepentirás.

  5. Geniales miniaturas y fantástico pintado. Esos escudos se salen...

    Tu único error: las bases no tienen suelo de baldosas.
    Ahora esas figuras también sirven para juegos de escaramuzas y batallas a pequeña escala. Cómo? He oído Dragón Rampant?...

    1. ¡Aaargh! ¡Yo te maldigo! :D
      Desde que estoy viendo tu último proyecto estoy pensando en esos esqueletos de Jasón y los Argonautas...

  8. I absolutely love the faded paint effect you achieved on the shields. Did you use a dry brush technique?

    1. Thank you! Yes, it's all dry brush; I painted the shields in 'wood' first (i.e., all browns and greys, to give the impression of old wood) and then y drybrushed the colours of the liveries. The sculpt gave me the idea, I thing I more or less got the effect I was looking for.

    1. Es una marca cara, la verdad, pero tiene cosas muy interesantes. No es lo más indicado para levantar un ejército entero, pero sí aporta piezas interesantes a cualquier grupo de aventureros, mazmorras o lo que sea :)
