Oldhammer Skeleton Warriors

This weeks challenge entry was a unit of 26 skeleton warriors, these were produced by Citadel in the 1980's. 

I've posted more pictures and details on my Oldhammer blog along with a couple of pictures of the army so far.
This entry netted me 130 points and takes my total to 460 points so far.  I now have three more weeks to get this over the 1000 point mark.  It will be a struggle but I should get there or at least come close.  I will be submitting another unit of 26 skeleton's next week along with an entry into the Theme round which should take my points to around 650.

I've put the 6mm Cossacks on hold for the moment whilst I get my theme round entry completed.  The last theme is anti-hero, I thought this meant villain but the actual definition is "a main character in a story who lacks conventional heroic qualities such as idealism, courage, and morality."  A bit of thinking and research and I knew who I wanted to paint for my entry.  I then searched suppliers for the right figures and found that I already had them from a Kickstarter I funded a couple of years ago.  These figures will also be my Curtgeld (entry fee for the challenge) and so I want to take my time and do the best job I can.

I'll get these and the remaining skeletons completed and submitted next week. I should then be able to complete the Cossacks the following week along with some Skeleton cavalry leaving me with a target of approximately 160 points for the final week.  Just about do-able.


  1. Very impressive, great paint job!

  2. I remember these, they were great! Nice painting as well. I like the way you have shaded the red shields.

    1. Thanks Secundus, the shields were a pain but worth it in the end I think.

  3. Great job on these Skeletons. Really good. cheers
