There is still a hidden place deep in the desert where the ancient civilization still exists.

They are ruled by a Pharaoh who in turn is ruled by the Tomb Lords.

When the Tomb Lords go to war they sometimes call upon their living allies.


In particular the beasthandlers are often called upon.

The young cats were imported from the jungles and savannahs that were once part of the Tomb Lord's Empire.

Besides the common lions, panthers and such they have bred the most vicious ones to create unique monsters.

By breeding with the biggest and most ferocious of the black panthers they can now field huge black panthers almost three times the size of a normal one.


And then there is the ultimate warcat.

It has been said this is a breed brought to Earth by the Goddes Bast herself.

This is a ferocious prehistoric monster larger than a lion and even larger than the huge black panthers bred for war.

There are only a few left, but no enemy has survived an attack of the Nehekharan Warcats!


One of the Pharaoh's daughters is leading the Warcats, here she is with her favorite Panther.





The mighty Lion.




The smaller but no less ferocious Leopard





A huge Black Panther, only after selective breeding one can field such a monster even bigger than the Lion.





The Nehekharan Warcat. A legendary beast, the largest cat of them all.

Release ALL the Kittehs! They're really looking great!


Thanks friends!


Right now I will first paint the Egyptian minis I already have ( and that I ordered lately) when I have painted the bulk of those I might add to the units I created.

Maybe more Warcats will be added then, for now it's a unit of five.


Soon I will start painting the spots and stripes and such.


I also would like a unit of baboons, but I only have the tiny one that came with the Princess.

Anyone know of good 25/28 mm baboon minis?

I'm talking real ones not armored ones.

And now to paint it all.

There is still an order pending from Crocodile Games which will bring more Mummies and Anubi.


I promised myself to paint the bulk of the army before I buy anything more.

But..ehhh..TMS Undying Dynasties? OMG!

There are a "few" things I might want to add to this Army!


Some inspirational artwork for reference and to stay in the mood.

Some Reaper Worn Navy for the Princess her hair, eyes and some of the cats their eyes.

Also made a wash out of it for the Black Panther.

Scale 75 Emerald Alchemy for her jewelry.


Also primed and based the Avatar of Thoth.

I used Procreate and the Greenstuffworld Egyptian Rollerpin for the stoneworks beneath his feet.


Reaper Red Liner and Sepia Liner for him and the base.

Suddenly got an idea while at work, writing it down in order not to forget.


Creating a Casket of Souls for my Tomb Lords Army.

( The original from GW is OOP and bloody expensive as is the TMS resin one)


I think I have a few parts that I can use.


  • Caster - Fatima from the Nefsokar Range.
  • Casket - make it from putty/plastic/wood and use the Egyptian roller Pin for the glyphs./ Use a tomb form Bones III change it into Egyptian with the pin.
  • Ornament - Crocodile Games Apis Bull / Anubis box/Seth Satuette or Toob Animals Scorpion.
  • Pile of skulls from Greenstuffworld and or Crunch plate.
  • Guards - Anubi Guards from Reaper/ Tomb Guards from Reaper.
  • Ghosts/spirits flying out of them? Grenadier Ghost/Bones Banshee translucent / sculpt ghostly trails with skulls at the end.

Set up,


Linked the pics because of Fatima's nudity.






Not certain about the Scorpion yet.


I ordered these, depending on their size I might choose one of these.

Ohhh my, that Avatar of Thoth is going to look epic in red....


That's what I hope!

Most people paint it white, but there also Red Ibises, so I figured it would make a nice change.

      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.
      WIP here:
      Lots of pics, I tried my new cell phone and it seems to do it's job well.

      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.
