Of course he's pale! He is a skeleton after all.
I guess I have not even come close to catching up on sleep. :-) Anyway, I discovered this guy a few weeks ago when I was looking for something else. I almost squished him.
Nearly 14 months ago, in the earliest days of my excitement over Tomb Kings, I had started converting/sculpting this miniature. I never had a death mage before, and I thought that lore might have some synergy with the Tomb King lore. However, Death magic has that notoriously short range. Since I wanted to have a 'fast' army of horsemen and chariots, I thought I could put a lower level liche priest on a horse and stick him in a unit of skeleton horses.
The plan was to ride up to a unit, mess with their leadership (Doom & Darkness), and then whack them with a big chariot unit with a character that had the Golden Death Mask. It never really panned out that way.
I also thought it looked neat!
When the early tests of the army went horrifically bad, I kinda forgot all about him.
Since I was painting all these other horses (for chariots, horse archers, etc.), I began to want to see this mage be completed. He will go in the front row with the Horse arechers on the board.
Here are some pictures:
Since I first started working on this figure, I have become much more familiar with the green stuff work needed to make these conversions have that Tomb Kings look. I added a few extra tidbits today as I was green stuffing a whole new batch of Forgeworld commission pieces.
