I used a sepia wash over a bone color and painted everything simply to make sure I finished without using a lot of effort. The painting isn't fancy but its a decent tabletop standard by my book.
As for a review of the Caesar Miniatures Skeletons kit, I suppose I should break a review down in to three simple parts: 'Quality', in terms of posing and materials. 'Value', in cost per model, and finally 'Uniqueness', in terms of availability of other kits or options. Crude but effective. I suppose I'll rank models by a scale of 1 through 5. The scale will work with 1 being rather Terrible, 2 being Adequate, 3 being Good, 4 being Great and 5 being truly Excellent
Caesar Miniatures Undead Warriors (Skeletons): Scale 1/72 Fantasy
Quality: 3/5 (Good)
The quality of these figures are nice with sharp details that easily take to washes or drybrushing. Minor mold line removal will be necessary but not a particular burden as the material scrapes away easily. Poses are repeated but easily rectified with arm/head/weapons swaps.
Value: 4/5 (Great)
While the exact price of what I payed for these guys eludes me I recall it being close to 10$, give or take a couple bucks. The kit is roughly half skeletons with a few extra robed skeletons (with scythes), a few necromancers, a standard bearer and some passable Dracula ripoffs. The box is a great value.
Uniqueness: 5/5 (Excellent)
In addition to providing much needed 1/72 skeletons (being some of the only ones available) the kit also includes 4 robed necromancers/magic users (which are somewhat rare in 1/72 fantasy) as well as 8 robed skeletal 'reapers' that can make for excellent wraiths or some such (again, virtually impossible to find otherwise). The lack of competition clearly warrants a rating of 'excellent', there merely is no competing with this kit. Hopefully someone will take a crack at it in the future, though.
Overall Rating: Great!
Next up: Twilight Creation 'Zombies!!!' for use in 1/72. Remember folks, support your local necromancer!
