Saga Age of Magic Undead Warband


I thought that I would take a look at my Undead Warband for Age of Magic, just to see what I've actually got done & what they look like altogether as all I've done so far is paint them & shove them in a case!! 

I have really enjoyed painting these, especially as Forlorn Hope Games/Moonraker Miniatures (or whatever they are called) has got a lot of the old Bob Naismith Grenadier UK figures recast, & back in the last century, I had a Warhammer Army mainly using these figures & of course I sold it a long time ago & have had to rebuy them! 

There are still a couple more units of warriors to paint up, 3 foot necromancers & , 1 mounted one (I think I may have too many!) 6 Cavalry & 2 units of Hearthguard! As well as the rest of The Gripping Beast Mindless!

Diehard Miniatures Bounty Hunter

When I saw this Brando the Bounty Hunter miniature from Diehard Miniatures I knew that I needed it, what exactly for, I wasn’t sure, but I needed it 😂 

So I bought 3 of them! One for me & the others for my kids (we are al big fans of The Mandalorian tv series) 

We had a painting session when we all painted our figures (haven’t got round to photographing theirs yet) I really enjoyed painting this Figure & tried to paint it as near to the character that he is based on & I think it came out ok 😁

For the base I mixed some white glue, powdered filler & a bit of water & luckily it came out a little bit cracked, like a dried out desert, so I gave it a sepia wash & a light drybrush of cream

 Finished up some more Undead miniatures for Saga & Rangers of Shadow Deep

First  up is the Undead Minotaur

And with the Undead Ogre

Next is a miscast of a Zombie alongside the proper cast f the same figure

A Group shot f the Bears Head Undead Humans

Finally is some old Grenadier Undead  now produced by Forlorn Hope Games. I used to have these miniatures for a Warhammer Army back in the Late 80's early 90's when they were originally released, but sadly I sold that Army off at Fiasco many many years ago.

Bears Head Miniatures Undead Ogre

Just finished painting the Bears Head Miniatures Undead Ogre for use in Saga Age of Magic or RoSD. 
I absolutely loved painting this figure & tried to get a mottled effect on the skin 🤔 not sure how successful that was really, but I’m happy with it.

Undead Sacred Ground for Saga Age of Magic

I’ve been working on a piece of special terrain for Saga Age of Magic. 
This is a free upgrade for your Warband that allows you to raise more troops whilst using the Necromancy spells. Every Warband has access to a peice of sacred ground terrain, each being catered to the Warband being used.

I picked up a selection of  gravestones through swaps on LAF & bought the crypt off eBay. 
For the base I used an off cut of plastic fascia, as it is thick enough to dig out in front of some of the graves to represent where the Undead have risen from their graves.

I cut up some flat plastic bases to make some extra flagstones & made a base texture paste from white glue, one strike wall filler & various grades of sand.
Then chucked some paint at it. 
Problem I’m now facing is I couldn’t be bothered to sort out the joins in the crypt! 😞
Now they’re bothering me 😂

Undead for Saga Age of Magic

I’ve been slowly working on a Undead Warband for Saga Age of Magic & have finally got somewhere like a reasonably painted force to think about playing with.
Here’s the pictures ( of course there’s all the Zombies, Vampire, giant bat & possibly the werewolves [they are more likely to end up with the Vikings along with the wolves though] that I’ve already shown)

Random Fantasy Miniatures Photo Dump

Here’s a dump of photos of Fantasy stuff that I’ve been painting for Rangers of Shadow Deep, Saga Age of Magic & just because I wanted to 😁

First up a collection of Zombies from different manufacturers, a halfling Michael Jackson impersonator (haven’t got a clue where I got this from!) then a Bad Squiddo Revenant followed by a R Squared Zombie from the Zombie Plague Kickstarter 

Next a couple of old citadel Undead Figures, a Zombie & a Ghoul

Yet More Undead, this time Two Skeletal Ogres. These are from Ral Partha Europe (I think)

Here are some superb Goblin Archers from Outlaw Miniatures

This is the fantastic Pact Devil from Bears Head Miniatures

Followed by A Heresy Miniatures Vampire and Goblinn Hero

Some Gripping Beast fantasy figures released at Halloween last year,
at the top is the Grendel & below him is a Witch

And last but no means least is this is the superb Old School Bugbear from Meridian Miniatures,
absolutely loved painting this & cant wait for the rest of the Bugbears to be delivered.
