FANTASTIC! The BEAUTIFULLY converted Prince of Darkness is an OUTSTANDINGLY painted & based creation...the LOVELY base contrasts SPLENDIDLY with the evil nature of the miniature. VERY WELL DONE indeed!

Nice to see a vamp that is not all red, black and gold. Really works mate!

I agree. We really can imagine that it's some kind of local fallen lord, who became a  creature of the night, instead of the usual "hollywood" larger than life monster.

He's a nasty looking bugger! :)

Great brushwork ;D

Thank you all for the comments.
I'm trying to put together an undead army which looks like a "real" force (real people who have been re-animated ) with coats of arms etc. With that in mind the rest of the army will follow similar lines to the vampire.

May I ask what your Retinue composes of? Always interested in what people field :-)
Cheers

Because the Leaders can be fielded as reduced model counts or single minis I have been looking at 32pt Armies to make the most of the minis I've got.
I have been looking at making up several versions of the army so that I can swap units in and out within that 32Pt limit.

Example:
Wight King Army:
X1 Wight King (Heavy Foot Single Model)+ Undead + Mystical Armour + Venomous    9Pts
X6 Mounted Fell Knights ( Elite Cavalry) + Undead                                                 6pts
X6 Fell Knights (Heavy Foot Reduced Model Count) + Undead                                   4pts
X12 Skeletal Infantry (light Foot) +Undead                                                            3Pts
X12 Skeletal Infantry (light Foot) +Undead                                                            3Pts
X12 Ghouls ( Belicose Foot) + Hatred                                                                   5pts
X6 Skeletal Hunters (scouts) + Undead                                                                 2pts
                                                                                                             Total=32pts
The Wight King in the above example is a real close combat beast!

I love how flexible the rules are for building units and I am having a lot of fun fiddling with the special abilities etc.

Next up is a GW Wight King with a custom base. Really enjoyed painting this one , although I'm not overly pleased with the eyes.

The eyes look a bit unfocused, mad and you know... dead. Great work as always man!

Thanks mate. I was trying to go for a glowing effect to the eyes but it looks a little too messy ( better in the flesh but not too good by camera). I'm pretty pleased with the glowing ghosts but I will probably repaint the face and just give him empty eye sockets.

I like him. Especially the base and how it all fits together. Shame about the eyes, hollow sockets will work, but might not look as menacing. :)

It seems like GW's undead range is the one hiding all their nice recent figures that I've never seen.  lol :D Nice work!

Just completed some Undead knights to add some hitting power to my army. They are GW Black Knights with some Mantic and Fireforge bits.










Hope you like them.
