Spooky Scary Skeletons, Spooky Scary Skeletons . . .

And so it begins . . .

Giga-Bites Cafe is hosting a building/painting challenge for Age of Sigmar. We were randomly assigned a starter kit, and I was fortunate enough to get the Malignants, a faction of the vengeful dead. Tormented spirits, scythe-wielding riders, and ghostly engines of war and bone sweep across the land leaving naught but withered husks and corpses in their wake.

I’ve been wanting to pick some of these models up for a while as I’ve been wanting some spectral foes for D&D and the like, and Games Workshops models put many of the WotC models to shame.

These will be the first Games Workshop models I’ll have ever assembled, and can’t wait to jump in.

When David told me my faction, I could not contain myself... more than usual..

I’m starting out with the, well, Starter Box. It comes with: 3 Spoopy Ghost Bois (Nighthaunts), 5 Spoopy Farmers/Spoopy Ironclads (Hexwraiths/Black Knights), and a Three Spoopy Five Me Chariot (Mortis Engine/Coven Throne).

What have I gotten into... This will be my first time clipping out miniatures. Gods keep my hands steady, and please don’t let me accidentally throw any pieces away.

 SO MANY PIECES!

SO MANY PIECES!

Okay... So, I started in on the Nighthaunts, and they are GORGEOUS. I was surprised actually how smoothly they came together. They are beautifully intertwined and look great.

I’m still unsure what colors I want to paint them (maybe a lavender/turquoise combo?), but that will be a problem for another day. Stay tuned for more updates.
