Skeleton Warriors - 60mm - Amscan - Old Battlefield (Hobby Post)

I saw some bags of very cheap Amscan Skeleton Figurines for sale on a party store website and thought they could be useful in a couple of ways for my hobby needs. Firstly as pictured below painted up and based as skeleton scenic pieces - maybe indicating the scene of old battles etc...and secondly as Jason & The Argonauts type warriors (see my next blog entry).

These are based on Renedra's large oval bases,

The figures come in a yellowy very bendy plastic. So I used hot/cold water to get them into poses I wanted and cut them up a bit with clippers as well. To paint I sprayed them matt white then dry brushed with Vallejo Game Color bleach bone and off white. They also got a dip in Army Painter strongtone quick shade before a final black ink wash.

My usual beasty brown / sand / wash / flock & lichen basing was used before everything was matt spray varnished.

Here's some links to other parts of this site if you fancy a similar hobby project yourself.
