Neglected models: skeleton jester

This model is so old I’m not sure which range it’s even from. I would have acquired him in the early 2000s – I think – since that’s when I had a Warhammer army that would have used him. It’s possible I picked him up earlier, for Warhammer Quest.

Anyway, here he is before I started:


And here’s the after:


skeleton jester: acquired circa 2002, painted 2018

I started with three bright colours, and then took the brightness away with a heavy wash of Nuln Oil.

Here is the full range of paints I used:


Yes that is an old hexagonal pot of GW Dwarf Bronze, used to pick out the bells on the jester’s hat. Still good after all these years!

As I had at least managed to undercoat the model previously, this is my second (and final) entry into Azazel’s September painting challenge, which was to complete a model you started before but never completed.

    Nice paint job mate and to solve the mystery I can confirm having just found it on their site that it’s a Reaper figure by Bob Ridolfi.

      thanks! I must have picked it up from one of those old Dark Heaven blister packs.
