Giant Mummy

Recommended Posts

Here is a shot of a figure I stumbled across in one of my mini-boxes.  Not sure who made it or what the mini is aside from a big mummy.  I put a bones mummy beside it for comparison.

Thinking It's about time I tried a large figure.  So I think after I finish Khael (aka Gandwarf), I'll give him the full treatment with a scenic base.  Think my skill are finally up to the task.

Wow that is really cool looking. Eager to see what you will do with his staff, that and the large size make him pretty interesting for a mummy.

Yeah, I'm trying to decide who would mummify I giant, and if so what kind.  Mostly to try and figure out an idea of how to base it.

The same people who would make a colossal skeleton! 

 

Though more seriously, I guess the question would be is if it were a culture of giants who practiced mummification, or mummification done by non-giants for another reason.     Perhaps the 'God King' was inhumanly proportioned?  A legendary figure of a towering giant of a man-god...   

 

Perhaps he was a giant shaman of some sort who was preserved by his tribe, or a rival to create an undead minion?

I was leaning toward the mummification done by non-giants.  Hmm. . . Struck with a idea of a kobold or goblin necromancer summoning it to fight off an actual rampaging giant (or any smallish figure type).  That would give me an excuse to paint another of my giants from KS1. (or order another)

Sounds good.    Could make a good diorama, though the mummy doesn't have the most dynamic pose.    Maybe have  couple of smaller undead involved too, a couple of skeletons or a zombie.  If I remember the posing on the KS1 storm giant right, that could work well as having a couple of chopped up zombies already fallen, and the big mummy stepping up to the plate.

 Actually, I like the sound of that better.  This is going to be a long term project I think now.  Time to get back to working on it.  Figure out what I'm going to need.

      The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb.  Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance.  A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall.  Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
       
      The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal.  On top sits a small box.
       
      Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box.  He lifts the lid and peers inside.
       
      "Ah, there's my old minis!"
       
      Who's Your Mummy?
       
      Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet.  This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.

       
      These mummies were one of my first large painting projects.  It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously.  They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power.  After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.
       
      What's your favorite mummy encounter?

      Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one:

      Yep, a dead head.

      50mm base.
      The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint.
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.

      I've got more dead things for you today.  @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead!  Here's my little collection of swamp zombies.


       
      The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere.
       


       
      He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model.  I love him.

      Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40).



       
      I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush.  His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up.  Would make a great shaman-type mini.

      And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game.  Again.  Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now.  Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck.



       
      All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies.

      Which one do you like best?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      Crawling back from the dead here with this fun little handful of zombies!  Added some gravestones to a few of them using popsicle sticks.  Just good ole' classic grave crawling zombies.  Went for a dusty color palette.
       
      Which one do you think turned out best?

      Unknown female vampire figure I picked up in a boxed game set.  Can't remember the exact name or manufacturer.  Box art showed them in purple, I wanted to explore other colors.  I see her as the kind of vampire that likes to play with her food and enjoys a bit of lively sport. I have 2 of her sisters to do in other colors. 
       

       
      The photo is a bit washed out from the flash.  Her skin is a pale grey, different than her white gloves.  Casting on the face is strange, she has an odd shaped mouth, and no nose so I painted one on.
