Random mini of the week 1: The Bears Head Miniatures “Skeleton Musician 1” playing the maracas! Talk about your literal Deathrattle miniature.


Just your basic nekkid skellie, armed with rattleheads. Chica chica chica!

Very basic and quick paint job, the whole thing in yellowed bone over a grey undercoat, a wash of Citadel Reikland Fleshshade and when dry a few successive drybrushings of bone colours, ending with teeth done in Reaper Pure White. The Rattleheads were done in grey-based bone colours to offset it from the skeleton’s own head.

I thought a bit about doing the maracas in the style of Calaveras de Azucar, but my finest brushes are shot so I dropped it. Anyway, like this it fits in with my existing skeleton horde better.

Just about right size.
