I bought some draugar from Gorgon Studios, and now I get to paint them. In the sagas, they seem to come in two colors, pale corpse skin and blar, the Norse blue-black. Has anyone else tried blar? If so, what color of paint did you use? A quick trip to a local store didn't turn up any evil shades of blue . . .

While my band of 10 draugar will probably be quite adequate, just in case, does anybody besides Gorgon make 28mm draugar?

I painted my Ganesha Games Possessed Dwarves for Song of Blades and Heroes: Axe and Brimstone in Vallejo German grey. Add in a little dark blue for highlights. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures to show you, but I like how it turned out.

regards, Bill

There are some celtic undead from alternative armies that might fill the ranks.

Fenris has some Draugr, though I don't have any so can't attest to their quality.


I do use Alternative Armies half dead Celts and like them

Also, Red Box has some


I hear what you say about probably having enough, but you never know.

You might be able to still score a box of Revenants from Gripping Beast.

I have a pile of those Draugr in my paint pile. I also bought some Zombie Shieldmaidens from Bad Squddo
