Relicblade: Bone and Darkness

Hey peeps, I  finished my starter warband of Bone and Darkness for the amazing Relicblade game. My buddy Jason at Headwound mentioned this game to me on a lark a bit ago, and before I knew it, I had a starter in the mail, sent by the formidable but kind king Sean Sutter of Metal King Studio.

If you don't know already, Sean is the author, sculptor, illustrator, admin, marketer, hype man, fishmonger... you name it and he does it all for Relicblade. This labor of love is a super fun, agile minis skirmish game that has a ton of heart and flavor for such a carbine of a ruleset. Post-game progression is managed by a fun "camp" mechanic that allows you to replace, re-arm and train your warband, as you limp back from each adventure and mourn your dead. Or undead. Or pigs. Or lizards. Or quintillion wandering monsters. Cough.

I will post an in depth review of the game and some batreps (yay!) in the near future but for now, here are some pics. Note that I converted the Dark Wanderer with bow a bit and the Bone Construct was reposed to look like it was scuttling. The rest of the models are stock.
