Very nice!  Surprisingly gruesome...

 

 

Thank you!

I figured as a Captain he has fought many battles.

Love the Hiroglyphic base...very nicely done.

Never ever thought of doing mine in Turquoise !

Great Job

 

Thx !

The glyphs were applied with a Roller Pin from Greenstuffworld, they have several different kinds.

Captain, my captain!

 

I am confused, though - it is a mummy - why does it have bloody arms and knees? Isn't a mummy supposed to be long dead?

 

Just noticed - hihi - that came out wrong. I mean: Shouldn't a mummy have dead flesh instead of bloody flesh?

 

Doesn't make him less adorable. He has a nice smile. Sis might immediately marry him. With his knives, he seems to be the perfect husband.

I figured his wrappings are coming off and dried blood is all over it..

The base really grabbed my attention, I like the figure too!

 

Thank you, Base was done with a Greenstuffworld Roller Pin.

I love the colored warppings, I've never thought of doing wrappings of a mummy in colors other than white and linen. This has opened my mind to new possibilities. 

 

 

Thx!

I think mummies look good in white, brown, green or blueish wrappings.

Nobody said being undead means you stop caring about your outfit!

      One of Bob Ridolfi's sweet little undead monsters from earlier this summer.  I tried some grey skin tones to give her a "definitely not human" look, with the contrasting pale yellow funeral dress.  It's all right, and there's nothing you need to be concerned about here....

      Another Ebay find! The base is foamboard, sand, and Vallejo Mud & Grass paint with some Citadel Stirland Battlemire. The model was a ton of fun to paint.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.
       
      Update 3 Nov 21: over time the tackiness was getting worse; I could no longer pick up the model for fear of leaving a nasty finger print...  (In particular, the elements that had GW's "Nurgles Rot" technical paint for some reason reacted really badly, and were quite gooey!)  But I finally got a pot of Testors brush on Dullcoat/varnish and it worked like a charm.  The figure is no longer tacky.  If that changes, I'll come back to update again!  🙂

      Hi all, just thought I'd share a couple images of my first Reaper mini painted up. It definitely seemed strange not priming something before getting started (typically print my own lately in resin, so have to prime those), but I wanted to try one of the Reaper products.
       
      I am by no means a pro, but each mini seems to get a bit better - constructive criticism welcome - I know I need to get a better photo setup sometime - maybe when the basement reno is done 🙂
       
      Next up is Boerogg Blackrime the Frost Giant...I love doing monsters so they're on-hand when needed for our D&D campaigns 🙂
