After playing mecca's undead army I pulled out all of my mantic undead models and got some paint on them. I have had some of these minis for a while and there just doing nothing I might as well use them for a small vampire counts army.
It's also a distraction from my dwarfs as I am not really looking forward to painting all of them...
Thats a lot of grey and black....
I started on my skeletons and used the white army painter primer and Nihilakh Oxide to give that ghostly effect.
It was not to long that I got all 70 finished..
I already had some zombies painted up for my Nurgle army but these were on round bases so it was a case of movement trays with round holes..
It was also a task to build loads of the Zombies that I have not got round to making. I also used some 40mm bases to fill out the units.
Next up was a necromancer or two. I had this reaper bones model that I was going to use for frostgrave but this gave me an excuse to paint it.
A couple of base colours and wash later hey presto...
As I am not to sure on army list etc I thought it would be cool to go for two necromancers and as I have lots of cultist minis form 40k I chose this guy to me necromancer number two..
|Yes I know he is on a round base but he is not glued down so will be on a square soon..|
So all in all I have 2 necromancers, 70 skeletons, 100 zombies (another 40 plus left to make) 5 wreaths and bolt thrower..
I know from what I have been told its not a lot of points etc but when I get a few more games in with my dwarfs and fancy a change at least I have another army ready to go and I can proxy units I am sure like my mantic badgers as undead wolves or something..
Anyway it looks like I will be painting some dead flesh in the not so distant future...
