Here is the first of 2 Undead armies converging on Bree.
We have some old school Black Riders from Citadel and Grenadier.
Along with a nice new Necromancer from Reaper.
The zombies are Mantic plastics.
But I will be adding auxilliary metal regiments from Rafm & Harlequin.
I already have a decent chunk of Citadel metal skellies, so my painted Undead army is coming along quite nicely.
Zombies are on the march!
Seeing him means very bad things are coming...
While I didnt like 8E as a rules set, I gotta admit they had some great plastic kits.
Rest in peace, Warhammer Fantasy Battles.
Cannon fodder for their Undead masters.
His code is: ME-64 Black Rider - Ringwraith
Its nice to have some respectable old metal figures to lead these new fangled plastics.
They also take paint well.
He is part of the 25th Anniversary of Reaper that is taking place this year.
Lovely, lovely figure that just oozes old school charm!
He reminds me of vintage Grenadier D&D wizards.
Here is another Black Rider, this time from Grenadier.
His code is: Grenadier M115 Mounted Wraith from Fantasy Lords series 1
I dont think he is available through Ironwind or Mirilton.
Which is a shame, he is a great sculpt.
Black Rider #1: Alright, buddies... here is the deal, there are living humans over yonder, lets go teach 'em whats what. Color Sgt Domus, lead the forward regiments out.
Necromancer Domus: (points to the nearest Zombie unit) You Deadites! You miserable bags of bones! Pick yourselves up and sally fo-, sally for-, (adjusts jawbone) sally forth...
The Harbinger: I can see the future... The Grim approaches! A giant, spectral dog that
haunts churchyards! It is an omen – the worst omen – of death!
Black Rider #2: Hmm... Undead dogs of death are certainly welcome to join the army. Hopefully its that really big 3 headed dog! Play dead, puppy... play dead.
Stay tuned, even more Undead are coming!
