Citadel Undead Plague Cart

I painted up a Undead Plague cart for my undead army. Its pretty much a bog standard paint job, nothing complicated, but the figure has its own impact, so it doesnt need much!

I also finished off my other four orcs from Artizan Miniatures - Midnight Workshop range. I do like this range of figures and they lend themselves to more fantastical colour scheme (I like to think that Orcs see in black and white Darkvision, so they dont realise how bright their clothing actually is!). Painting these guys have also given me the opportunity to really be playful with some of the colours from Foundry Paint System, which Im also liking alot!

Risen From the Dead

How appropriate. This blog has been a bit quiet of late. But as the saying goes "Its not dead... Its just sleeping..."  ;)

These fellows are definitely dead though. I've been painting up a few units for my Warhammer 3rd edition Undead army. I didn't have any mummies, and the prices on ebay for citadel lead were well, quite frankly just silly!

Therefore I decided to have a look around. I found and bought this unit of 10 Oldhammer-esque mummies and painted them up in a jiffy...

I'm almost finished with a couple of skull chuckers so hopefully I can update my Undead army shot soon...

Next up are some Orcsies, If anyone recognises who produces these please leave a message! I cant for the life of me remember where I got these guys from. But I do like their style and I experimented on the bases and painted them up with some colourful shrooms, using some Foundry paints that I picked up at Salute. The Foundry paints are really rather good.

The next four orcs are almost complete and I shall probably be using this set as my default D&D 'stand in' goblinoid bad guys, as they could be goblins, orcs, hobgoblins...

Well I hope the pics have come out ok. Its been a long time since I had some painted figures to take pictures off, I had kind of forgotten how to use my camera! These pictures are using my laptop screen as a backdrop.
