It was difficult but not impossible. The pieces are very delicate, so difficult to pin. The joints are really small and poorly defined. So most of them really do need to be pinned! Additionally the feather-winged figure kept bending under its own weight when I started painting it, so it needed an additional connection (pinned) to the tree just to keep from tipping over.

I would leave it on my desk as it was supposed to be posed. But every morning it would bend at the tree (where the arrow is pointing) and I would have to bend it back. But that was no permanent solution. I ended up having to pin/glue the leg back to the other part of the tree to keep it from bending.

So the figures to require some delicate modeling skills. Wonderfully sculpted in terms of detail, just not in terms of assembly process. I love the end result. They are beautiful models. If you don't mind the extra work in assembling them, they are well worth the effort. I never had any interest in carrion models until these, and bought them only because I really liked the way they looked. I was not disappointed in that respect. It just took some extra steps to get them finished.  lol

I had the older figure and when I saw the newer one being released I just knew I had to have them because of the modeling potential for them arguing!  lol

They are gorgeous carrion and you've done a wonderful job painting them too!

I'm not sure my modelling skills could be called delicate  lol That said I just discovered the magic of superglue plus accelerant so may have a small hope...

Thanks! Given the tattered flaps of flesh hanging off their animated carcasses, I think a little extra glue and/or modelling putty to hold everything in place could be an alternate to pinning.

I had "finished" my July Old World Army Challenge entry, the final month, a bit early. Or so I thought. Then our Benevolent Overlord posted a meme in the FB group that I took as a challenge and scrambled to produce a large-ish last minute piece of terrain. (Heh heh... "produce"... see full OWAC entry for the unintended pun.) I succeeded! The focus of the final month, however, was the leader of this army of the undead - The Liche!

A few teaser pics below, see the full entry for more pics, details, and words: http://oldworldarmychallenge.blogspot.com/2022/07/zerotwentythrees-june-undead-600pts.html





For July I will be preparing my wrap-up post, plus repairing a second carrion that bent under its own weight so I can get some full-army pics.  >:(
