So it turns out that painting skeletons is a lot more labour intensive than I’d been led to believe. Surely it’s just a case of drybrush them with Ushabti Bone and go home?! Instead it turns out to be quite a lot of effort. No wonder I only got half-way through painting this squad the last time!
What’s more I’ve discovered the little devils are an absolute nightmare to photograph – all those shields and swords held over their faces (are they shy or something*?) casting shadows everywhere.
*I mean, I’m aware that they are notorious bashful about attending social functions, on account of having no-body to go with, but surely this is a bit much?
Anyway, enough of my griping, here’s the first half of the squad done at last.
