These are Gripping Beast's Revenants, a six point Saga force. They are a good blend of horrific and comical, and take a slapdash paint job really well.
They come with two Grave Pits, that can be moved about the battlefield and 'erupted' into fresh undead units.
I got a Draugr from Elladan to use as their leader. It is a lovely model, albeit fragile around the arms.
The snow is PVA glue, baking soda, and a smidgen of Secret Weapon crushed glass.
These were the last thing I painted for the Analogue Painting Challenge, and it's been hard to pick up a brush after that! I even forgot to post here last week...
I like these figures alot. They make a cohesive force. Scale wise how do they compare with other figures of a similar undead disposition ?ReplyDelete
Thanks, Phil. They're pretty good scale wise with other 28mm stuff.Delete
Absolutely stunning, I just love those piercing blue eyes!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Michael- I was worried I'd overdone things!Delete
This is a really fantastic force Barks and was a highlight of the Challenge for me. I agree with Michael- the creepy glowing eyes add a wonderful focal point to the army.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to hearing how they are on the table - Winter is Coming!
I haven't been near a Saga game for far too long...Delete
Great looking warband! I enjoy playing revenants and would like to see them hit the table a bit more often.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forwards to giving them a run. Or shamble?Delete
Its unanimous, the eyes have it! Lve your undead warband, I've never had a chance to play the Revenants.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Monty, I hope to get them out and about.Delete
Barks, you magnificent bastard! I just finished painting up the Revenants myself and am working on getting the pictures up. But yours are so gorgeous, I will be ashamed.ReplyDelete
Have you played with them yet? I'd love to hear your thoughts. I hosted one game between Vikings and Revenants and it went really well - I think they're a fun and thematic faction.
I can't wait to see yours, Matt! I'm glad to hear they play fun.Delete
