I’m revisiting my Tomb Kings for Warhammer 8th Edition, and my plan for this year is to finish painting a core of infantry, cavalry and chariots plus some accompanying scenery. Additional motivation for this project was provided by the excellent BBC documentary series Immortal Egypt which is now on the iPlayer to catch up on.
Some years ago I raised a regiment of Skeleton Warriors with simple base colours and drybrushing which I’m improving gradually by applying additional highlighting. I’ve done that so far on the first rank and am now happy with the overall look of the unit. Eventually I’m hoping to revisit the rear ranks as well, but first I want to make progress on the new elements of the force to get them all to a battle worthy state.
Also part of the force already are two units of Skeleton Archers and a Liche Priest that I bought second hand, painted to a nice standard as a bonus.
