Skeletal Familiar

One of the reasons I tried to hit Deadcember hard right at the start was that I knew the holidays would mean less free time. The new job has sort of compounded that. But, a few weeks later, I have finally snuck in a tiny bit of time for myself. I put down some basecoats on the equipment of three skeletons and re-based an old figure that was painted many years ago, this skeletal familiar (who will just fill in wherever needed, in the current/theoretical plan.)

My new, significantly scaled back goal is to finish the three skeleton heroes (Ennio Mordini, Renzo Avanti, and Richter Kreugar) by the end of the year. If I can finish any of the rest, then it will just be icing on the undead cake. But I'm really hoping I can manage the three heroes -- if I do that, I will be happy.


  1. Good luck with your plans. I've taken the holidays, not to mention the previous two months, off. I'll be hitting the brushes again in 2017.

  2. The familiar looks grand. I cannot wait to see what you do with Mordini. He's one of the most iconic undead in the Warhammer canon. As Bertie Wooster says, I will be watching your future progress with great interest.
