Tabletop Mummy Horde (77144 and 2156)

Recommended Posts

Nice! I too am in need of mummies! Luckily, with the Halloween promotions going on next week, I should get a ghoulie bag to go with my ghoulie mummies and other assorted stuff! I really like how you did the faces! (Thriller is the song that came to my mind when I saw the group shot, lol)

Those look great.

 

So what's a group of mummies called? A shamble of mummies...A pyramid of mummies...? Something else?

 

Given the era during which such collective nouns were all the rage and how mummies were treated then, I propose that this is a cord of mummies.

Lol, cord of mummies! That is both funny and sad. It is really appalling how they treated mummies, they are after all human remains. I was shocked when I first heard they were used as fire wood.

The Living Impaired Lads painted up BEAUTIFULLY; you have a flair for funeral wrappings. OUTSTANDING WORK!

All lined up like that they have the look of a Michael Jackson style chorus line.

      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?

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
