Beating a Dead Horse...

I'm not sure how it translates in other languages, but in English there's an expression "beating a dead horse".  It basically means you keep bringing up a same opinion over and over even though it won't change anything, but just gets annoying to everyone having to hear it.  Well, that's what I kept thinking when I was painting these Skeletal Cavalry.  But it was really more of just how long does a skeletal horse go?  Sure it doesn't get tired.  But don't they start falling apart after a while?  Meh, I just over thinking it.  It's magic!  Fantasy!  Who cares?

So, speaking of fantasy, magic, and the Undead.  How about I introduce you to the start of my 10mm Undead army for Warband.  You didn't think I painted up all those Dwarves so they could sit on the shelf and drink all my ale did you?



More to come soon.  Enjoy the last hours of your weekend.

  5. Pertaining to your rather brilliant miniaturized philosophizing re the properties of fantastical skeletal beast of burden, Professor Rocky, I speak in the words of the loquacious Popeye the Sailor Man, "It yam what it yam, dats what it yam!"

    And dats a really fine paint job!

    1. Thanks Professor Jay. I see the merits of your argument and raise a can of spinach in your's and Popeye's honor.

  6. Looking good! Regardless of how long they can go, they'll still be able to out pace those stunty legged beard mongers!
