Work has begun on painting the more archaic skeletons from the Raiders of the Undead boxed set. First off the Workbench of Doom is this ossified warrior:
The kraken emblem on his diplon shield gives him, at least to my mind an Atlantean feel. Probably to do with all the octopus images you see on those Cretan & Theran pot shards from the early bronze age. What I really like though is the way the scorpions pincers form an eye guard on the helmet. Overall a very impressive sculpt and so far my favourite of this particular boxed set.
