Shifting Sands Glitterwolf paints Egyptian Undead

Recommended Posts

My Egyptian style Army is just for fun and display like all my armies.

It will consists of Undead, Golems, Construsts and some living servants.

I might add some animals too.

 

Basically it's a mix of GW's Tomb Kings, 9th Age's Undying Dynasties, Mantic's Empire of Dust and Reaper's Nefsokar lore.

And I will add some of my own.

 

I hope you do enjoy it.

The Bone Priestess could make anyone an Egypt Deadite Fan. They are LOOKIN' GOOD!

They seem happier in a thread of their own. Providing links to your other varieties of Living Impaired Folk could tie them all together.

Here is the thread for an Oldschool Gothic Undead Army with some Demons and Evil Human Allies.

Really? And I consider myself to be a slow painter.

Mostly I get a few hours in a weekend and sometimes a few hours during the week.

That's it.

Well on average, that still probably puts you ahead of me in terms of how much time you have. As for the use of that time I do get, I am reallllllly slow, but I think that has a lot to do with me still considering myself a newbie and taking a long time to consider color schemes, checking videos online for ideas/how to's, debating how "big" to go, and in general, just never having really started out with the goal of doing a "quick paint". Or to put another way, I probably could get more models done, but considering my best models don't look super great, the quality of a quick job would be really lacking. 

 

Of course the real issue is also that I have a severe case of ADHD when it comes to what I want to do during my free times. :)

The most important thing is that you enjoy it when you paint/build or make up a background story.

 

I try to paint every mini as well as I can, sometimes I succeed sometimes less so..

Still, I have fun while doing it.

I can't wait for spring and summer, then I can paint in the garden again.

I know what you mean, I painted outside once right before winter started. I almost wish I had waited till after winter to try it because I am joansen to do it again.

I agree 1000%! I'm not per se worried about the actual result so long as I am enjoying the process since I understand I have limited skill at this point in my career. Better yet though, I can look back at some of my early minis and see some improvement!

      Finished the Bones Version of the Avatar of Thoth.
      Sculptes a bit of ruins with a Greenstuffworld Rollerpin.
       
      Thoth is often depicted as an Ibis, I choose the Red Ibis as inspiration.

      For the last few months since Reapercon, I've been focusing on pumping out minis to avoid the rut I got into last year. When I saw that Reaper had released the ghost sailors as metal figures, well... I knew what one of my October projects was going to be. I loved these guys as part of the Bones IV kickstarter, but I've not enjoyed painting plastic minis as much since getting back into metals at the Reapercon melt table, so I was psyched to order them and put in an order that night... Most of the rest I had from Reapercon, although I think I picked up Labella there too.
       
      Either way, these guys painted up gorgeous and easy using my go-to one-two spirit technique! As a firm believer in spooky blue ghosts, I started by priming them white, then giving them a couple layers of Irrisen Blue from the new Pathfinder paintset... My old blue standby was from the HD line and the bottle has faded to the point of illegibility, but it was almost identical. Then once it's dry, I drybrush heavily with Linen White (pure white comes out looking starched, and bluer whites don't show on the blue, but linen is perfect) and... call it a day. Decorate the bases, maybe some pizza... 's good. That said, minis painted using this technique meet my #1 requirement for ghost minis: They're distinctive on the table!
       
      I debated doing some OSL, but decided that it would wash the bases out, unfortunately. I like it better this way, with the bases nice and grounded, and the ghosts spooky and glowing! Lots of fun base details on these, too - 10/10 recommend picking them up if you have any sort of use for them!
       
      Miniatures involved (not enough tags for them all): 03965: Ghost Pirate Cook, 03966: Ghost Pirate Quartermaster, 03967: Ghost Pirate Captain, 03968: Ghost Pirate Bosun, 03969: Drowned Nymph Ghost: Banshee, 03718: Ghost Bride, 03475: Labella DeMornay, Banshee, 03170: Lurien, Ghost, 14168: Gauren, Necropolis Hero, 03799: Female Wraith
       

       
      03965: Ghost Pirate Cook
       

      03966: Ghost Pirate Quartermaster



      03967: Ghost Pirate Captain


      03968: Ghost Pirate Bosun


      03969: Drowned Nymph Ghost: Banshee



      03718: Ghost Bride



      03475: Labella DeMornay, Banshee




      03170: Lurien, Ghost



      14168: Gauren, Necropolis Hero



      03799: Female Wraith

       
      Of all of these, if I had to pick favorites... Hm... Ghost Bride and Gauren. They took the drybrushing perfectly and are super-fun figures!

      Most of this Early Modern Monster Hunter/Classic Monsters series I've been doing is based on late-Renaissance and early-modern Europe, with notes of high moors shrouded in cold mists; filthy cities with crooked narrow cobblestoned alleyways; high castles on remote crags, etc. But the world's a big place, and it's good to remember that the pulp authors that popularized the monster hunter as recurring character (particularly R. E. Howard and Manly Wade Wellman) had a soft spot for Africa in their stories. 
      So here's Ogana, a hero straight out of a Charles Saunders story, with a great Don Cheadle profile. Another fun sculpt, easy to paint and embellish. 

      [Side note: if you need to make a Sword and Soul adventuring party, this guy plus Nehanda, Jaatu, Rhasia, and Jigeke would be pretty rad.]

      Far to the north of the grassy fields of his home, the red desert whispers and calls. There, a traveler may sometimes find the great pillared houses and temples of the very old men from long ago who once lived there, in the times when the land there too was fertile. But the red desert spread and spread and swallowed the grass, leaving none for the cattle; and the old men could not move their houses to follow the grass, having built them of heavy stone, and so there the pillared houses stay, empty except for the sand and the wind. 



      Or perhaps not so empty, thought Ogana, hearing the grating sound of a large stone slab moving over stone, and then the pad of footfalls in the rapidly deepening dusk, footfalls so light on the sand, lighter than that of a man full of blood and water and meat. Ogana hastened to hide himself behind a column and watched. 

      It seemed not *all* of the very old men from long ago had left this place.
