I supported a small Kickstarter project by a German rookie sculptor a few months ago and pledged for the Undead faction (surprise!) consisting of three zombies, a necromancer, a vampire and a headless horseman. This was the first release under the Fantasy and History label, which I hope will make it off the ground as a new manufacturer and find some distribution.
Over the weekend I started painting the models and finished the first two zombies, the simplest of the sculpts.
The figures are in a non-heroic scale and nicely proportioned. There are some characterful touches like the half exposed skull and the skeletal lower leg and the poses evoke a suitably shambling walk. I intend to use them for Frostgrave, which I am casually gathering bits and pieces for without having played the game so far.
In the background my first building from 4Ground’s Mordanburg range, which I am totally sold on and will use to build up a small townscape suitable for Frostgrave, Mordheim or as a backdrop for fantasy battles. For the same purpose I bought the 4×4 Cobblestone Battlefield by UrbanMatZ, an equally good purchase.
