Crowdfunding Spotlight: 28mm Renaissance Skeleton Army Miniatures Kickstarter

6 Jun

It might not surprise you that, here at the Grinning Skull, we like all things skeletal. So, it would be rude to not include these babies here in Crowdfunding Spotlight.

These figures are brought to you by Skull & Crown, a name that’s apt considering the subject! As you can see the inspired skeleton designs, lifted as if from the pages of the old woodcuts, paintings and engravings from the renaissance period. Also there is a distinct old skool vibe to them too, most definite thumbs up for both points!

These actually tempt me to get out my paints and minis  right now and do a bit of painting (although I always seem to have 10,000 things to do before I could even consider doing so…) taking out all my available skelly minis to get painted like I promised myself weeks ago…

You can get involved and check the figures out in more detail by clicking on the pictures or this clickky here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/23535743/renaissance-skeleton-army-28mm-miniatures-for-game?ref=category

Keep your eye out for these guys in the future!

Every respectable dungeon should have a few of these to warn those pesky adventurer types, just how they might end up by delving too deep within it’s tunnels…

This is a dead easy and quick make, and will get you some nice looking pieces for really minimal effort.  Continue reading
