Ever wonder about the 28mm plastic skeletons by Wargames Atlantic? In my newest YouTube video I take a good and close look at the kit, build up all 32 of them, discuss my thoughts on the kit and even provide a scale comparison image too.

Video was very informative. Thank you for posting it.

2 feedbacks:
– At 0:50 you state "there are no bases to talk about here whatsoever", but clearly 3 figures in every sprue has an integral base. And -- correct me if this is wrong -- but it looks like for the 4th figure (the torso requiring advanced assembly), the large shield without cutouts could be used as a base. As long as a quarter of figures don't need a shield (e.g. archers, shaman, champion, pikemen, etc.) this works out.
– what glue did you use? If you state this, I missed it. For figure assembly did you use polystyrene cement? For fitting to your MDF bases, I see solid glue residue, so I'm guessing gap-filling super glue, but I suppose could be epoxy, craft glue, or maybe polyurethane or hot glue.

Thanks again!

I had contacted Wargames Atlantic about the "more difficult" skeletons & they said they were more for "scatter" terrain like fallen warriors or coming from the earth as you had done. I also had a hard time assembling them but overall I like the figures. Remember this was their first release.

ZULUPAUL, that is interesting. But the box says 32 skeleton warriors and the only way to make that count is by assembling the "more difficult" ones. Coming from the earth does make sense. Scatter terrain does not since they are not truly extra bits.

Hi CeruLucifus,

You are correct, the models do have integrated bases and you could use a shield as a base for the fourth one if you wanted to. Personally I based them on 25mm rounds to match them to the rest of my collection.

I did not state what kind of glue I used in the review. I used Testers brand non-toxic plastic cement for the models. To fix the models to the bases, I used Gorilla Brand Gel Super Glue.

Zulupaul. That is an interesting comment. You could use them as terrain elements for a diorama or something, but I wanted the full 32 figures stated on the box so I made them up as figures.

Must Contain Minis I did too but I wrote them a note about the difficulty & that was the essence of the response. I used them as archers. WA even conceded that the listing wasn't the best saying 32 figures.
