They Won't Stay Dead

Guess Whose Back?
When there's no more room in hell, my lead pile will walk the Earth.

Back once again with the renegade master the undead of Dungeon Saga, this week. It's a last blast on these for me. Not a terribly welcome one, I must admit. Painting ground I've already covered once feels like a chore, and nice though these skellies are, there's only so much you can do with them.

I mean, you could do freehand shield designs on the swordsmen, but there isn't a lot of room. Quarters and stripes were all these guys got. The one slight flare I could think of was giving them glowing hearts as well as eyes, a sort of necromanticardio work-up. Something a bit different, anyway.

If you guessed that it was their master's back, you were right.

Mortibris does at least lend himself to a little bit of elaboration. Room on his cloak and robes, as well as the opportunity for light sourcing. He's come out a bit disco, though, not sure it's quite what I intended. Ah well, I could always go over it one last time ha no what am I saying, he's going in the box and quite possibly never coming out in person ever again.

I also did a box, purely to taunt Stylus.

It's an open and shut case, detective.

But also as a cryptic teaser for the next batch, which is something of a treasure trove.


  1. I am duly taunted, although not sufficiently so to pick up a brush and paint any furniture. Where did the gold sparkles come from?

    Excellent glowing hearts - just when you thought there was nothing more to be done with skeletons.

  2. The sparkles are tiny circles of gold and rainbow glitter, specially created for nerds like us to make treasure piles out of. I got mine (along with the selection of tiny gems I used on the Eldar) from Bad Squiddo Games, I think it was, it's excellent stuff.
