Well I did it, finished the last unit of skeletons about an hour ago. 60 infantry, 2 catapults and crew, characters and an undead giant in five days not to shabby if I do say so myself.
I took the afternoon off from painting to tidy up the wargames room which had become (to put in nicely) a bit of a pig sty. while I was going through some boxes I came across this giant undead mummy half painted. Finally having a use for him I based him up and finished painting him.I think he makes quite a nice army centre piece.
I'll try and take some better pictures in the next few days and post them up. Of course the armies not really finished yet. Mantic are releasing zombies in October that look very nice so a unit will be a must. I'd also like to add some cavalry and a couple of enthrals as well. To use this army in WFB 3rd edition I need to get a small unit of Grim reapers (skeletons with scythes) Mantic don't do anything like that so I'll have to look around for some.
Having built the core of the army I can know add stuff at leisure when I'm in the mood which is great. I think that's the fastest I've ever painted an army. I'll have to send the wife to her mothers more often.
