In an ancient graveyard, deep in the heart of the frozen city, unholy creatures stalk through the miasma…
“Not today thanks, I’m watching my figure.”
“Braaii- oh hello Steve, I didn’t recognise you for a minute. My you’ve lost weight!”
“Well you know how it is: after spending all day fighting warbands all you want to do is slob out in front of the gravestone with a bucket of brains – next thing you know it’s an effort to get out of your tomb every morning. So I decided to do something about it.”
“Whatever you’re doing, it’s working!”
“It’s nothing special; just sticking to less fatty foods – lower limbs and such, cut out the snacking on Hobbits and going for a good shamble twice a day...”
With the main rulebook scenarios finished and Thaw of the Lich Lord on the horizon, I was looking for an inexpensive zombie troll figure when I found a set of plastic Dungeon Saga undead miniatures. “Great,” I thought, “a zombie troll with some extra undead minions to boot!”
I was rather disappointed then to find that the minis, whilst nicely detailed, are quite under-scaled compared to the usual 28mm fare. They can best be described as ‘slight’ – they’re on 25mm square bases, which should give you an idea of how skinny they are.
As such I haven’t really gone to town on the paintjobs (I confess to a little photo manipulation to make them pop a bit), but they’ll do if I need to throw any extra nasties onto the table.
