Yet More Grenadier Miniatures Skeletons.

These have been waiting patiently in the painting queue for quite some time now, so last night as a spot of light relief finally got round to splashing some acrylic onto them:

The top figure is from the Skeleton Knights blister pack. I don't know the provenance of the lower but he is wearing the outlandish mixture of equipment so characteristic of Andy Chernak's skeletons. Good fun to paint though.
Whilst on the subject here is a family shot of the Grenadier Skeleton collection as it stands today:

There are still three unpainted skeleton looters to add to the growing brood as well as a few cavalry figures which will be tackled at some unspecified point in the future. Doubt I'll ever collect them all, for one thing it is quite difficult to find anything like a complete illustrated listing of all Grenadiers Skeletons online, perhaps another project that could be added to the ever changing list.


  1. Very cool, HGA, you've certainly brought these older figures to life - so to speak. Dean

  2. Such a great blast from the past...I love this old fantasy gear. Nicely done.

  3. Thank you both, these older figures really set a standard when they were produced. In many ways I think they excel in comparison to modern fantasy figures, too many of which are too exaggerated for my tastes.

    Regards HGA.

    1. Thank you for giving those miniatures a great painting :)

      they look great

  4. Nice new additions to the horde. Here is the providence of that second one, it's from Chernak's Personalities range:
