These are my regiment of Wights for my Kings of War Undead army. I haven’t used Mantic’s own miniatures, as the original figures looked far too underwhelming to me. Their new Wight miniatures are far better, but I’d bought and painted these well over a year before Mantic released them.
These miniatures are ‘Barrow Wardens’ by Reaper. They’re the metal versions, but all three are now available in their Bones range (and at much cheaper prices).
They aren’t really the right size for Large Infantry (they’re not as big as Werewolves, for instance) but they certainly look meaner than skeletons or Revenants and don’t look too swamped multibased on this 40 x 120mm base.
I’ve painted them in bronze armour and added more verdigris to them than my Revenants, to make them look more ancient. Their robes are green to further tie them into the colour scheme of my army. Here’s a look at each Wight in turn.
Wights are pretty nasty in games of Kings of War and I always take a Regiment of them.
I have a fourth Barrow Warden and recently bought a Bones figure that with a head swap, will look the part for a fifth. Once I find a sixth, I’ll have enough for a second Regiment/be able to field a Horde of them *Mwu ha haah!*
