Muzyk oddziału szkieletów | Musician for unit of skeletons

Posted on September 27th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Niniejszy szkielet kończy, przynajmniej w teorii, malowanie oddziału szkieletów uzbrojonych w broń jednoręczną, pochodzących z czasów 3. edycji WFB. W teorii, bo parę takich szkieletów mam jeszcze niepomalowanych, a kolejne kilka czeka na odszukanie i dokupienie do kolekcji. Niemniej jednak jakiś tam etap został zamknięty, a oddział będzie można niedługo pokazać na blogu.
Sam szkielet to wydany w czerwcu 1987 r. Drummer with hat – ukazał się wraz z kilkoma innymi postaciami do grup dowodzenia.
Today’s skeleton ends, theoretically at least, painting of the unit of skeletons armed with one handed weapons, with miniatures from the times of 3rd edition of WFB. Theoretically, as I still have some such skeletons unpaited and few more are still to be found and bought. But, nevertheless, this is some kind of end and the unit itself will be presented on the blog soon…

Skeleton was released in June 1987 as Drummer with hat – together with several other skeletons forming command groups.

Of wrinkled bones – Story of a Skolleyton

Posted on September 3rd, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Hi all !
A few days ago, I saw a very nice proposition on the Oldhammer FB page, the kind you can hardly say no to…
Stuart K. offered a handful of Olley miniatures to the people who’d claim them first at the only condition that those models were painted within a month.
Now I do like to be challenged and I love Olley models even more ! This is how I ended up bagging this magnificent skeleton !

Games Workshop Undead

Posted on August 7th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

These two figures are the first ‘modern’ Games Workshop miniatures I’ve painted and I’m impressed.Small kits of around 6 parts on a single sprue may be common knowledge by now, but it’s a real novelty to me.The figures go together easily and are a joy …

Dwa nagie miecze | Two bared swords

Posted on August 4th, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Mam w pracowni taki upał, że przez kilka ostatnich dni w zasadzie nic nie malowałem, farba zasycha na pędzlu. Czas ten poświęcam na skrobanie kolejnych części plastikowych figurek, jednak powolutku wysycha źródełko pomalowanych figurek. Czas chyba wziąć się do malowania.
Pokazywany dziś dowódca oddziału szkieletów ukazał się na rynku w lipcu 1987 r. Wchodził w skład grupy kilkunastu figurek określonych zbiorczo jako Grupy dowodzenia szkieletów, a on sam nosił już mało poetycką nazwę Champion with two swords. W praktyce cały wydany wówczas tuzin miniaturek to wariacje na temat jednego z czterech wzorów – inne uzbrojenie, inne hełmy, zmienione parę detali…
Malując tego dowódcę chciałem nieco rozbić w sumie dość monotonną kolorystykę, wykorzystywaną do malowania moich undeadów. Oprócz kolorów pancerza, kości, itp., barwy moim szkieletom zapewniają resztki ubrań i wyposażenia w kolorach – najczęściej – niebieskim i czerwonym. Tu, dodatkowo, pobrudziłem kolczugę jakimiś nalotami “pleśni”, pobawiłem się tu i ówdzie patyną.
Do pomalowania został jeszcze muzyk i cały oddział będzie gotowy – do momentu pomalowania kolejnych paru szkieletów;)
My man’s cave is so hot and humid that few last days were without painting at all – I spent my hobby time assembling new plastic miniatures, as the paint – literally – dries on the brush. I will have to paint something soon though, as the line of finished miniatures is growing very thin indeed.

Today’s miniature was released back in July ’87 (middle of my High School) as a part of bigger release of Skeleton Command Groups. Miniature was labelled simply as Champion with two swords – rather bland I’d say. Dozen of miniatures released as a part of this group may seem a lot but – in reality – there were only four main designs, with three variants each – different helmet, weapons, some details added or removed here or there…

I tried to distinguish this particular miniature slightly, he deserves that as a champion. So, in addition to usual colors of bone, rusty armour and ‘spot’ colors for my undeads – red and blue – I painted a lot of varied tones on the armour – some patina, some discolorations, etc.

So, only musician left to paint and whole unit will be battle-ready – at least till the time of painting another bunch of skeletons;)
