Now this new army, these are my test bases are a new avenue for me on several fronts. The figures themselves are 3D printed resign figures. The design is Forest Dragon in the UK printed for me by a very nice man in France. As I live in Portugal the shipping and tax costs from the UK are a little high at the moment.
The figures themselves are great sculpts, up-sized from 10mm to 15mm. The detail is fantastic and the poses are wonderful. The figures I bought came in strips, which I regretted as as i tried to crop a few away I did have casualties, the horsemen are meant to have a standard bearer but he did not make it lol Next time I will order individual prints which is a service that both Forest Dragon and my printer offer.
The second is the painting, I tried Games Workshop Contrast Paints for the first time. The skeleton bone, black and most of the red are all Contrast. To be honest when I first applied the paint I was not convinced but once the models were complete i think it works rather well and it did shorten the painting time.
The trial batch I ordered in full. Basing will happen once I am home.
Two main stays of the army Skeletal warriors and Reavers. I left these on the strips with overlapping figures.
Some Zombies in the foreground
The Zombies in all their glory, the variety and animation is great.
Skeletal Knights...Great figures very 'alive'. I have painted the barding and shields in Old Warhammer World livery to represent resurrection of their former selves.
Wraiths....all in black and heavily armed!
I must repeat these figures are stunning and I really enjoyed painting them. Forest Dragon do so many great races and they are expanding....I am sure a lot more will fall into my collection.
