And The Dead Shall Rise Again

I've finished rebasing my Warmaster Undead Army, Tomb Kings to be precise.

Here they are:

Well over 2000 points worth of, ehm, bones, just bones.

The Monsters, two Sphinxes and two Bone Giants.

Slow in movement but hard to kill, you don't want any of these to get on your flanks.

Mind you they are bad enough attacking you anywhere.

Bone Throwers. These are a pain to rank up as the bone bows are way too wide for the bases.

Skull Chuckers, the heavy artillery of the Undead world.

Undead Archers, death in the shadow of their arrows.

You don't want the enemy to get close to these, they can be fragile in close combat.

Undead Spearmen

These can also be raised from corpses on the battlefield.

Chariots, the main striking force.

Undead Cavalry

Handy as a follow-up force to the chariots.


Flighty but fragile.

These can also be a 'bustard' to rank up. Look at my cunning solution.

The Commanders, a motley crew of Liche Priests and Heroes.

They must be height conscious as they always seem to be standing up on a little mound.

Not content with a little mound, these guys are magical in their elevation.

These are the most conscious of their high positions, they take to the air on their Zombie mounts.

There's been a lot of drilling and pinning behind the scenes (actually under the bones) of these models as they are prone to accidents.

Both wings are pinned as well as the priests spear (very fragile they are)

Now, all they need is some static grass on their bases. Anyone know what is the latest Undead fashion in static grass?


  1. Great army...I never had much luck with Warmaster Tomb Kings. Chaos on the other hand......

    1. I think I managed to win as many games as I lost with the Tomb Kings but that was a long long time ago.

  2. You might use model coal as a base: very Mordorish.

    1. Nice idea Dan but I'm hoping to use these figures on my green painted tabletop so they have a 'green' appearance.

      My Epic Space Marines do have black sand bases though as a lot of my 6mm terrain is volcanic in nature.

  3. Blimey!! That´s one impressive army!!

    1. Gee thanks Paul.

      I haven't played any sort of game for nearly two years now so I'm hoping to work up a bit by playing small games of this and that. Hopefully I will be able to get most of these guys onto the table at the same time soon and then maybe I'll have to buy a few more to make up a 3000 point army.

    1. Thanks Bill

      I hope to use them on Tuesday or Thursday, first game since we lost Iain.

  5. They're alive Jim,... but not as we know it.

    I hope you enjoy your games.

    I hope you enjoy your games.

  7. That's a stunning army Jim! Must have taken ages to paint- looks incredible.

    1. I don't recall it taking too long to paint but it was 15 years ago.

      I am painting another Warmaster army as we speak. Since 5th June I have painted 13 units which is about half as big.

      They don't take long to paint.

  8. Hi Jim

    I picked up your post this morning on my Shed Wars blog ref figure sizes for Kallistra, Pendraken and the old GW range. That post you commented on is over three years old. Those figures are buried somewhere in my shed !

    All I can say is that the Pendraken match the GW well - the Kallistra are slightly larger. I found that clipping all the sprues meant I could stretch my armies further.
