Corvus' Miniatures

Painted sf & fantasy miniatures by Gerrie Schenck

The second package: Mantic Undead

Regular readers of my blog will know I got some exclusive preview sprues of the Mantic Games Elves last summer. Well, a while ago the guys at Mantic were so friendly to send me some undead sprues to check out.


And again they did a great job. Not everyone liked the design of the Elves, but I think these skeletons will appeal to a wider public. The figures are filled with bits of armor, chainmail, weaponry and shields. And again the sprues are filled with a huge amount of extra bits and options. Again the casting quality is very good.

There's no real reason not to buy these if you're looking for a cheap or better looking alternative for your favorite wargame's undead troops.

Personally I think I will take one skeleton from the sprue, add some bits to a base and paint it up. They look very tempting to paint :)

I've been really impressed with the elves, I plan to paint them as melniboneans from the old moorcock elric novels and be able to use any elf list (good or evil) :)

I may have to pick up a sprue of these for rpg type games sooner than I thought though, they look brilliant, and more customizable.
