Skeletons and Revenants from Mantic

Inspired by the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter I brought out some Mantic figures from the plastics and metal mountain. 
Ten of these skeletons come from the Skeleton Command sprue and five from the Undead Revenant sprue. The latter also have 10 figures on the sprue, but I’m not overly fond of some of them, so they stayed on the sprue for the time being.
Colours used: Citadel Scab Red, Formula P3 Bootstrap Leather, Humbrol 63 Leather, Vallejo 034 Bone White, 912 Tan Yellow, 894 Cam. Olive Green, 881 Yellow Green, 921 English Uniform, 886 Green grey, 885 Stone Grey, 863 Gunmetal Grey, 843 Cork Brown and 874 Tan Earth. Everything washed with Army Painter Strong Tone.
Comparison between Mantic and old GW skeleton 

Now I will focus more on 20mm WWII Early War. British troops are first in the painting queue.

Finally, the Heretic Kickstarter unlocked some more fabulous new minis.
Madame Ner’Gabba (work in progress)
Maggotmen (3 different for £6)
The Angel of Righteous Anger
B’Hakoth the Fallen One
Hurry, it closes on September 3.

  1. Very nice! I have the beginnings of an Undead army somewhere. If I ever get that back on track, Mantic deadies will have a place in it.

    1. Hehe. If only I had a suitable figure for him...
      They will for sure see action in my D&D campaign.
