Shifting Sands Glitterwolf paints Egyptian Undead

Recommended Posts

 

I started out with an Egyptian Undead faction in my Lost World but it didn't feel right.

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/

 

After some good advice from @malefactus I decided to move the Eygptians to their own thread.

 

The first one is my Mummy Captain.

My Egyptian style Army is just for fun and display like all my armies.

It will consists of Undead, Golems, Construsts and some living servants.

I might add some animals too.

 

I hope you do enjoy it.

The Bone Priestess could make anyone an Egypt Deadite Fan. They are LOOKIN' GOOD!

They seem happier in a thread of their own. Providing links to your other varieties of Living Impaired Folk could tie them all together.

Thx Al!

 

 

The Lost World link is in the first post.

 

Here is the thread for an Oldschool Gothic Undead Army with some Demons and Evil Human Allies.

Really? And I consider myself to be a slow painter.

Mostly I get a few hours in a weekend and sometimes a few hours during the week.

That's it.

Well on average, that still probably puts you ahead of me in terms of how much time you have. As for the use of that time I do get, I am reallllllly slow, but I think that has a lot to do with me still considering myself a newbie and taking a long time to consider color schemes, checking videos online for ideas/how to's, debating how "big" to go, and in general, just never having really started out with the goal of doing a "quick paint". Or to put another way, I probably could get more models done, but considering my best models don't look super great, the quality of a quick job would be really lacking. 

 

Of course the real issue is also that I have a severe case of ADHD when it comes to what I want to do during my free times. :)

The most important thing is that you enjoy it when you paint/build or make up a background story.

 

I try to paint every mini as well as I can, sometimes I succeed sometimes less so..

Still, I have fun while doing it.

I can't wait for spring and summer, then I can paint in the garden again.

I know what you mean, I painted outside once right before winter started. I almost wish I had waited till after winter to try it because I am joansen to do it again.

I agree 1000%! I'm not per se worried about the actual result so long as I am enjoying the process since I understand I have limited skill at this point in my career. Better yet though, I can look back at some of my early minis and see some improvement!

      Here's my 2018 Ghoulie Bag translucent smoky grey 77636, Death Shroud. I simply did a blueish highlight and painted the base on this Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Julie Guthrie.

      Hi everyone, here's a simple paint job on a translucent version of 77096, Labella DeMornay. This model was sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I painted it with green ink and acrylics.

      These guys were a nice excuse to paint up some undead that weren't bound to the usual colors. I figure that they're a group of adventurers that got hired to take out Selmarina, (who is the only dedicated evil witch I've painted thus far). They got as far as taking down her Minotaur bodyguard before she "reprimanded, reeducated, and reanimated" them. Now they serve as champions in the Pumpkin Legions...

       

      I was inspired by artwork of the Crimson King from Stephan King's Dark Tower with this guy. Obviously he was the wizard of the party before things went sideways.


      Live, dead, when you're one of Selmarina's minions she still expects you to do your job. Employment security I suppose...


      I tried very hard to avoid making this one resemble Legolas. So I went with an Autumn inspired scheme, which I'll probably run with when it comes time to paint the few other living elves I've got laying around somewhere. 


      Greens and Browns are usually more elven type colors, but I wanted to keep this one as far as possible from both the red browns of Gimli and the usual colors of the Coffee Dwarves. 

      I see some flock got stuck to his axe, I should probably fix that...

      Even death cannot stop the hunger of the average Halfling. He may prefer flesh to taters now but that doesn't mean the mushrooms are safe...

      The painting theme of the month has been chosen! The Undead of October will emerge from their (freshly painted) graves The miniatures have been selected… Here’s what's on the painting table:



      9 Bones Skeletons (from Bones 2)
      6 Undying (Death, minotaur, lizardman, elf, halfling, & dwarf skeletons from Bones 3)
      Bone Fiend (Bones 2)
      4 mummies (Bones 2)
      Hecklemeyer & Styx (25th Anniversary mini)
      Dust King & Tomb (Bones 3)
      Demi-Lich (Bones 2)
      3 Nefsokar mummies (Bones 1)

      26 (or 28 if you count the broken tomb and the tiny puppet) minis, in 31 days? Less if you count the vacation in the middle of the month… Plus one day since I started on the last day of September. Granted, the skeletons should all go really quickly, but even still, it’ll be a push to get it done, but this would push me over 100 minis for 2018… 



      Since everything is already lined with brown liner, the plan is:
      Dirty Bone on all the bone and mummy wrapping!
      Scorched Metal all the armor and weapons 
      Heavy Sepia Wash pretty much everything
      Highlights

      Special Minis:
      Demi-Lich - Thinking green/purple flames?
      Hecklemeyer - Black & White costume? Black, White, & Red?
      Nefsokar mummies - Lots of gold and bronze. 
      Dust King - Seriously tempted to paint it up like the ice lich from Warcraft… 

      As for their bases? That’s a little more work. The skeletons, bone fiend, and maybe the dust king will get bases to match the flocking on the tombstones. The demi-lich and hecklemeyer will probably get some sort of sculpted flagstone base. The mummies? Haven’t decided. Seriously tempted to give them dungeon flagstone bases too… 

      Okay, so it’s really unlikely I’ll finish all of these in October, but maybe by November?

      I find this mini problematic and objectifying.
       
      that said I wanted the baboon that came with her. So I figured I’d make some progress on skin tone and paint her up.
       
      happy with how she came out even if I might not ever use her
