    Greetings my fellow mortals and immortals.

    This will be my expanded undead legions blog. In the beginning of time, when I started my undead, I had two sub armies.

    The royal crimson legion of quatar - my tomb kings

    The host of the bleeding tower - vampire counts

    I have since constrained this to just my tomb kings. For saftey reasons, of course :p

    With thd upcoming release of tasty new undead in the form of the nighthaunt, I find it night on irresistible to rip down the caution tape and reopen the catacombs.

    The endless undead legions will march! In kings of war, because that is my preferred system now.

    So, in addition to the two sub projects listed above, I have added a third (for now, there may be more) which I am lovingly calling

    The spectral horde


    All of the Miniatures in this sub army will be painted in a minimalist ghost theme. This is the test miniature for that scheme. Apologies for the flash.

    I require your comments on this test miniature. Please and thank you.

    Much more blogging to come, I assure you!

    It's a skeleton, and it's a ghost.
    Make it a vampire, and you'll have The Undead. ;)

    Pretty cool theme, I was thinking of doing something not a million miles away in converting skeletons and free peoples together and painting them spectral to be the Dead men of Dunharrow...

    It works and thing with it is they are so fast to paint, only thing that does not look right is the yellow eyes, I think green would go better Bieltan shade maybe.

    I think you should put a green shade or glaze all over it and it would look very nice, albeit a bit like if you were on acid painting it. Which may or may not be a good thing depending on the observer's world view. :D

    Try glowing Orange or Red eyes. The Yellow is not working. Fluorescent Hunters Orange if you had any.

    Twice-dead Skeletons is not as appealing as twice-baked Potatos.

    I once considered doing up a Bretonnian Army in this fashion ...a Ghost Army of Old Bretonnia... to both protest changes I disliked and highlight my minimal paint skillz.

    What is a “Dooting” ?? (...my google/fu failed and nobody answered in the other thread where the nonsuch-word was used...)

    That fellow raises the question why is his shield ethereal while his spear is mundane? Go ahead and make the shield mundane also.

    Imma Thinking The Orange worked.

    That blue-green /vrs/ orange combo is very close to pure complementary colors. I think that is why it works...

    ...eye-popping contrast. :angelic:

    The center imo takes the last place.
    Left or right? It depends from the degree of supernatural look you want to give to your skellies

    Spooky scary ghost skeletons and a spectral necromancer. I chose the right scheme based on the community views across 3 separate groups. Lustria, Facebook nighthaunt, and reddit AoS

    I also think when going spectral it is good to go the whole way. I would also have chosen the right one.
