I changed them from Shadow Men to Shadow Troopers because of what happened in the book "A Trap for He-man" so now there are Shadow women & children. I painted the heads & clubs, which I bought from Orsogranito.
The Shadow Men were created by Count Marzo & lived in the sunless Valley of Osgor until He-man let the sun in, killing them all. The Shadow Men's great strength was their ability to see in the dark. But light meant agony to the Shadow Men and this was their great weakness. The super sensitive ears of the Shadow Men make them perfect spies. Skeletor went to the Kingdom Of Dyperia & permanently transformed all the inhabitants into his new Shadow Troopers destroying the kingdom forever. Skeletor improved Marzo's spell by making the Shadow Troopers able to survive light inflicted injuries. They now live in the dark corners of Snake Mountain, spying for him all over Eternia.
