Warriors of the Dead - Command

This lot come in pairs with each of Dark Alliance´s "Dead" Cavalry sets, The Musicians in the Light warriors of the dead cavalry, the Standard bearer and King in the heavy warriors of the dead cavalry.
The bod Comes with standard/flag that is molded draped over the arm supporting it...and due to the folds  it  makes it near impossible to paint the Thing..unless they are painted up just as ghosts.
Solution? Cut the molded flag off at Hand Level (You can just about see his boney fingers Holding the staff )  remove the bottom part of the staff, and carefully trim away and excess plastic to give a rough arm shape. Add New Staff and when the bod is painted, add the printed flag. This then gets folded and creased around the arm to cover up  the fact it´s not a perfectly molded arm.
The way is shut.
It was made by those who are Dead.
And the Dead keep it.
The way is shut.
Until the time Comes.

Anyway, the bods will be used as medieval Revenants, visible ghosts or animated corpses that  return from the grave to terrorize the living. (Revenant" from the Latin word, reveniens, "returning")

Blur - Donottrackme

You get to see which trackers are at which sites, here it´s google..obviously.
Since I uploaded it (yesterday) It´s blocked 257 trackers to the time of writing this..including FB, which had a like /share link on a News site and to most Blogs which are linked to FB.

You can still use FB etc but FB says;
 "Your browser or device may allow you to block these technologies, but you may not be able to use some features on Facebook if you block them"
Ah!! Didums!!..Boo frickety hoo!! 
and what Features may they be? The trackers that collect our data and sell them on?
