I’ve based the two hordes of Zombies and two regiments of Revenants. I’m leaving off the soil for now so I can keep working towards getting my list ready for the doubles tournament.
For the Revenants I used 14 and staggered them 4/3/4/3. This gives a nice view from a corner angle and looks good from head on. Still, I couldn’t see fitting more and getting between them to work on the soil. And it doesn’t leave much room for diorama elements.
The Sculptamold as a filler for the bases works pretty well, but it does warp when it dries. I’ve never noticed it before on terrain uses. The hordes in particular had very strong bows. But bending them in the opposite direction breaks the Scultamold and they sit pretty flat now.
I’m not sure it’s the best material since it’s a little heavy for the hordes, but it gives the unit some heft which feels reminiscent of metal models. Just don’t pick up the horde by a single model. 🙂
Not sure how the Cart of the Forsaken (just made that up) in the nearest unit didn’t end up in the middle. 🙁 I’ve been working on my models very late at night and it must have been a tired mistake. Ce’ la vie.
Here are my wights. All Reaper and by choosing from the same sculptor you can get a pretty cohesive look. The ones in the back are Bones models and are larger than the front row. But I think it still works o.k. Who says you can’t have a small woman become a wight? 🙂
It has been a very long time since I painted a new unit. I forgot how to paint. Still figuring it out.
I should add that Bones models are definitely a trick to work with. I opted to prime them and the primer stayed tacky. (A known issue.) I very, very lightly primed them knowing that primers have a hard time curing properly. *shrug* I also thought of ‘priming’ them with Army Painter Anti-shine just to give them a matte surface to paint over. I’m going to try it on my other Bones miniatures. We’ll see.
I’ve gone ahead and painted over it anyway and the paint layers kill the tackiness.
But I’ve had the paint pull away from itself when it dries in some places (poorly primed areas) leaving a crackle pattern. Small areas, and another coat covers it fine, but still an issue. But for $3/model I’m not complaining.
