Grenadier Mummy

Recommended Posts

This mummy was hungry when he woke up. He is now snacking on the poor adventurer who woke him. He is making a mess on the mable floor of his tomb as he is tracking the blood around and dribbling on the floor. 

 

The pose was a bit strange with one hand held up and one hand near his face, so I tried to make sense of it by putting a big bloody hunk of meat in his outstretched hand. It's a bit gratuitous, but I'm ok with some gratuitous gore once in a while. If I ever use it in a D&D game, he is definitely tearing someone's arm off on a "natural 20."

I used testers contour putty to fill in the plastic base, using a pen like a rolling pin to make it flat. The I slapped on washes of white, black, and tan in stripes across the base, letting them mix together at the boundaries. After that dried, I used a fine brush to put black and white veins across it, then washed again, then applied more veins again. It gives the impression that there are multiple layers in the marble. I used the same technique on my drow queen.

Nice work.  Grenadier sure sculpted that mummy a bit on the portly side.  Given his diet, I guess I can understand why . . .

Another weird thing:  most of the undead creatures from the box set have similar pose; right arm raised and left arm tucked in. The sculptor must have started with the same model and modified poses only slightly before sculpting the bodies.

      The dwarf is an Eureka 15mm figure (maybe 18mm, can't remember right now). I brought him with other 15mm figures to see if they would fit as brownies, gnomes or dwarves. He fits all of the roles, so now I know where to get some small folk. I actually enjoyed painting him and the 15mm landsknechts (didn't photograph them) a lot more than I expected.
       
      The monk is an old Grenadier Figure, I think you can get him at Mirliton now. I speed painted him using a Zorn Pallet. It works well for anyone who is somber or drab, it can also work well for NMM.
       
      The figures on both sides are from Ground Zero Games, i think they are from the goth set. They can work as cultists, lords or even vampires. 
       
      The maid and the butler are from Wargames Foundry. I really like the sets. The rest is still being painted. With the maid I experimented in painting an impression of some lace or embroidery on her pink skirt. I tried to make the cup she holds look like bone china.

      This picture is closer to the real colour than the one above (thought it is still not perfect, with the monks robes not being as distinct in sections as they are)

      Hello guys and gals!
       
      so this is the first figure I ever painted, even though these aren't that version.  The first version, which is actually the one you see below that was painted first years ago, is actually the original stripped version that I would have painted when is was probably about twelve.  The original one was painted in model enamel colors, with pink skin, yellow hair and shirts, green paints and I think grey cloak.  I ended up getting back into minis again way back and stripped him before I knew about EBay and was able to get a second copy.  So here's the one I just finished painted a few nights ago:
       

       
      and here's the one I painted I think in about 2004:
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      So anyways, just thought it would be fun to post, now I'm off to go make some organic pancakes for breakfast!
       
      Enjoy!

      I am really enjoying Rangers of Shadow Deep as a solo play experience. I am currently painting up the opponents and some rangers for the Across the Wastes adventure. 
       
      These are all Reaper, about 50/50 Bones or metal. Lots of drybrushing again. The scorpions are just dark grey spray, washed in black, with drops of 'orc blood" from Green Stuff World used as venom. I also used some foam clay to make rocks for the scorpion bases.

      Frog-folk are always irresistible, and tiny poison-arrow frog-folk even more so. These are from a Nolzur's 3-pack. One had some kind of horns on its head I didn't fancy, so I trimmed those off. Look at these big-headed little savages!  
       


       
      More angles: 
       
      But I know you're all here for the Grenadier! Afraid I had to get this Marsh Dragon from Mirliton, but I couldn't resist. It's so salamander-like, with goggling newt eyes and axolotl gills, and that lovely rounded snout. We're really jaded by fancy dragons after years of fantasy art. Even a low-level drake like this would be pant-fillingly TERRIFYING in real life. Look at that dynamic curve of its body, the lashing tail! The armored prehistoric arrogance of a crocodilian, but faster and more agile; something with the metabolism of a tiger and the yawning bite of a leopard seal, with a bone-breaking tail-swipe. This is a great 'cryptid' dragon, suitable for Call of Cthulhu or a low-fantasy gritty medieval / renaissance game. 

      You know any treasure hoard is buried deep in soft, acidic mud, too. They don't stockpile precious metals in particular, but anything else gets corroded away in that caustic sump.

      Like the Grungs, I gave it vivid aposematic coloration, partly like the salamanders it resembles, and partly because many of the dragons chronicled in Continental European legend were feared less for their size than for their virulent poison. 



      I don't know what the excrescence on its back is meant to be; certainly not wings. Maybe a bony outgrowth, maybe a Suriname Toad style brood pouch of puckered and toughened hide, maybe an organic saddle. Since there are so many styles and colorations of poison dart frogs, I might get another pack of Grung and modify one of them to ride on this thing. Their bandy legs and its peaked carapace look like a good fit.
       
      EDIT: More froggies!
