Dungeon Saga Skeletons Finished

I have finally finished the six 'basic' skeletons from the Dungeon Saga game.

They are lovely skeletons.  I am pleased with the paint job for the game, but I wish I had taken more time to clean up the mould lines and bend the figures into shape a bit more.  I should have used hotter water I think; a lesson for next time.

I have written up a more detailed stage by stage guide to how I painted these on the Reaper forum here.

Dungeon Saga Skeletons 3

Current progress

This is one of each pose with a wash of sepia and some dry brushing.
I'm not that happy with the results of the drybrushing, so I might go over  and highlight a bit more .

Dungeon Saga Skeletons 2

Just a quick update to show progress on these bony beauties.

They take paint well and the detail is good.

I'm not aiming for a great quality paint job, as long as they look good on the board.

I have kept the same shield colours as the earlier Bones skeletons I painted here, though the green is a bit lighter.

Dungeon Saga Skeletons

I've had a chance to look at Dungeon Saga in more detail, and I have to say I am impressed.
Here are six of the skeletons included in the main game.

Reminds me of the old Heroquest skeleton

These have all been washed and given the hot water treatment, as they were a bit bent, no doubt for having been baged up and boxed.  

The plastic colour is OK for Undead straight out of the box, though I will be painting these asap.

I have also dabbed superglue under the loose foot of each skeleton, with the bending mentioned earlier, some of them looked like they were hopping around the dungeon.

They will get a fairly simple paint job, but i think they will look great when on the board.
