Back in the 80s when I first started playing RPGs we really didn’t have access to a lot of miniatures, which meant when you found something unusual and cool, you grabbed it! That’s how I ended up with my first version of this fantastic Undead Cyclops from Grenadier Models 1988. That version has long since been chopped up and most bits lost, but I found a similar one on eBay and jumped the chance to get it again. I have to say, this one really has held its own against the tides of time and is still as cool as…
My wife bought me this a while back. As I wasn’t sure what to use it for, I never got around to paint it as I tend to paint what i need for the game. However, I sat down and painted it and good thing I did as I suddenly needed it as a fallback option in our Daisygate campaign as we had a TPK! Quite happy with the result. Maybe the glow could have been toned down a bit, but I am happy with it. I am not really sure what to categorise Death as. I know he looks…
I spent quite a long time looking for Dwarven undead and was quite proud of the gang I had painstakingly collected, so when I found the Macrocosm box of dwarven skellies, it was with mixed feelings. However, I still think the gang I’ve collected is a pretty cool team and I painted their bases in lava style to distinguish them from the lowly cannon fodder skeletons.
I’ve spent the last year and a half finding dwarven undead… I’ve found 5 minis so far and then I found the Ancient Grudges – Bonefields set from Macrocosm Games that has a ton of Dwarf and Goblin Skellies! Great variety and quality of these little cute minis. I painted them using this speed painting technique for skeletons. Took maybe 2.5 – 3 hours in total minus drying time and the result is good.
I wanted some skeletons to look more elite, more organised and more dangerous and I found this Egyptian skeleton regiment at Mantic Games. It comes with 20 skeletons, but the set comes with so many bits, so I only made 10 of them as I am not sure whether to make the last 10 more ordinary skellies. I also had two Sokar skeletons from Reaper that fitted neatly in. These Skeletons are all speed painted and I used the same speed painting techniques on the Enslaved Guardians and Avatar of Sekhmet.

When I saw these I had an immediate sneaky plan! Can’t wait to put it to play. Great simple miniatures. The Kitty Cats with their master
I do think undead is the best race in Dungeons and Dragons. Yes, I love Goblins, but undeads you can get from the very lowest level and all the way up. I think they also offers the greatest variety and there is something elegant about Egyptian themed undead like this Mummy Queen from Reaper miniatures. The Mummy Queen with her kittens
I only recently learned about Rage Craft Miniatures , but when I saw the photos of this amazing Witch King I bought it immediately. And the real miniature didn’t disappoint! In fact, I’d say eventhough I am happy with the paintjob on this one, it doesn’t do the miniature justice! Really badass undead dude.Would work well as a Death Knight with it’s own personality rather than being a copy of Lord Soth.
Saw this miniatures years ago but didn’t have a use for it (I tend to paint only what I need for playing). And although our D&D party is nowhere near at the level where they can fight vampires, I still think the chance they might one day is a good enough reason to buy and paint it! To me she is the kind of vampire that comes with armour and swords rather than spells.
i cannot believe I haven’t made a page for this Death Tyrant from Jax Miniatures !! i actually painted it in the beginning of last year (2018) when I first started playing Dungeons & Dragons again after a 20 year break. It was even the inspiration for Bebbie the Beholder Bartender. Anyway, better late than never.
I was part of “the wave” when IK Warmachine first hit and was a diehard Cryx player for a long time before I felt the game got too big. But I keep up with what the produce so when I needed an undead captain for a Dungeons & Dragons game, it was an easy choice to get Captain Rengrave. I actually rand short on time so speed painted him following the technique I used for my Zombicide game and I’m quite pleased with the result.
