It's also one of the Kickstarter exclusives I believe, so you'd have to just poach one on eBay - shouldn't be too hard.  I managed to get a Minotaur I was desperate to have from Mythic Battles on eBay for around $12 shipped.

At a glance, it's a bit pricey at $20 at the moment.  Maybe keep an eye on it for the future?

Lots of great stuff here. The cockatrice and troll are especially good.

Thanks, shall have to keep it in mind. In the meantime I'm waiting for some Bones stuff to arrive, I have some unassembled LotR Trolls (and some Trolls in Dungeon Saga, I think), and there's always the Otherworld Troll to consider, as well.  :D

Only been nearly a year since I updated this, but 2018 wasn't a super productive year for me.  I've also been in the Fantasy doldrums, basically throwing a fit because I don't have a good game to play with them.

However...it's 2019 and I'm also off to a slow start.  But, I picked up these lovely Skeletons from Games Workshop's boardgame Shadespire.  The game looks a bit "meh", but these figures were great for about $20.

I do have to ask though why does the two headed ogre have an enormous log strapped to his back?

Because he can?

Nice job. The WU skeletons are the best skeletons GW has made. Some of the bits are kind of thin though.

Yeah, they're superb - even clipping off the slotta-tabs was...risky business.

The way you use washes is inspirational. Re rules, what about Vanguard by Mantic to pull some of these together?

I'm just slowly amassing a large fantasy collection with nothing proper to use it with.  I'll check out Vanguard, but thus far nothing has really hit home.  I have used the collection for a couple of various games thus far (Mordheim, etc.).

Your Underworld Skellies look fantastic. The paintjob on the bases almost looks like it has a subtle glow. Is that the lighting for the pic or did you do some kind of cool drybrushing and/or washing?

Nope, nothing special, just drybrushing.  Maybe part of the white-balance in the photo editor, etc.

What about Warlords of Erehwon?

Not one that I've checked out.  I'm mainly interested in either:

A) An excellent long-term dungeon crawl with heavy role playing aspects (without being a role playing game)
B) A fun and interesting skirmish game, possibly with long term campaign aspects.

Have you looked into Rangers of Shadow Deep?
