Bones Mummies defeat Amazons

Recommended Posts

With my inability to leave well enough alone, of course the first batrep I post using this Historicals ruleset is between two mythological armies.  I mean, why wouldn't it be?

 

Rules:  Hail Caesar, by Warlord Games.

Armies:  

600 pts of Mummies, based on the New Kingdom Egyptian published list. (Reaper Miniatures' Bones)

400ish pts of Amazons, based on the Later Hoplite published list. (Wargames Factory Amazons w/Reaper leaders)

This was a really good game - we seriously had no idea which army was going to break first, and we spent a turn or so with both armies one unit away from routing.  It was the Mummies' final break through the center that sealed the deal.

The great thing about those is that I was able to spray-prime them (didn't work well, but it did work well enough,) then dip them in Minwax.  After a couple days, I wiped off the excess, and the unarmed ones were DONE.

Excellent post, convinced me to finish up my Kings of War/Bones mashup armies and finally actually play a game.

 

Hey your stonework scenery thing, what did you make that from? Looks like the bottom of a McDonalds drink holder or something.

      I was inspired by limey72  work doing NMM Gold on the enlarged Dwarf over in Works in Progress. I wanted to do a brass like robot or construct, so I pulled out this Golem. I also wanted to try some AK weather effect acrylic pencils I have had for a time. I think it ended with too much brown and ended up wood looking. But it has grown on me, so I will finish up his base and call it done. Hope you like it.

      My exchange partner this time around was @Corporea.  She was one of those troublesome ones that are fine with anything.  This of course means that I am free to do anything, so what I did was use her as an excuse to test out airbrushing my Vallejo Air Metallics.  Because of that this mini is a little more metallic than I might have otherwise done.  The aluminum didn't want to airbrush, or hand brush for that matter, so I may have a bad bottle.  Other than that they all worked as expected. I.e. you can create a TMM effect by combining these paints with a regular paint for the shadows.
       
      I also tried my hand at a mosaic tile base.  The area I started with isn't as good as the rest of the base, but seeing as I am already late I didn't go back and take even more time to repaint that area.  Overall I thought it turned out pretty well, though I don't believe I'll be doing it on cork again. While I thought the imperfections in the surface could work as missing tiles, in practice they just ended up being in inconvenient places.

       
      But unfortunately I had to stick a mini on it.
       

       

       
      Full frontal metal shiny.
       

       
      And rotating around for those that want to look.
       
       
      I also attempted to create the look of texture by applying leather colors in a series of parallel lines.  I kind of liked it but at the same time I'm not sure that it comes across as any particular type of texture.
       

       
      And that's it for my 2019 exchange.  Next year I might even try to be on time.

      I’m working on trying to get this big guy painted to tabletop standard by the time I have to use him at our next Pathfinder D&D session to represent the Roc King on Tilagos Island in the Demiplane of Last Resort, in the Age of Worms adventure path.

      Painted up these 8 unrelated barbarians as a clan for my Wrath of the Righteous campaign. Tried my hand at non-metallic metal again. This is the result. :)
