I posted a wip of these skeggies a while back on one of the monthly painting topics but never got round to starting a dedicated thread. So, a few years later, here goes.
Before I get into it however, I must say there is some absolutely amazing work on this forum, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed catching up on 3 years of all your hobby progress. Very inspiring stuff, my thanks to you all!
So, on to my Undead. I’m not a fan of zombies, ghouls, werewolves, vampires etc in general, so this army was always going to be a more traditional Bones and Spirits type. After extensive research, I settled on the Warlords of Erohwen, now made by Warlord Games. If you’re wanting a classic look, I would highly recommend these mods. They’re a bit fiddly though, so a little patience is required.
The paint scheme was as follows:
Brown undercoat XV88
Drybrush layers with an Army Painter Strong Tone wash in between -
Flayed One Flesh
I did them all as one big batch, building and painting. Never again. I think regiments are the best size to work on now, after doing this.
Many photos to follow, I won’t post them all as I have 300+ wip shots haha, it was mostly done during lockdown so it definitely helped keep me sane (Edit: define sane…). As I’ve been reading through other posts I’ve seen a lot of similar stories, so hooray for the hobby!
(EDIT: my phone is low on storage so the photos will follow at a later date, hopefully I’ll remember over the next few days (workworkwork))
