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.

Thx Al!

 

 

The Lost World link is in the first post.

 

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!

      The biggest model I've ever painted, I worked on it in sections and then assembled it onto the base when finished. I made very minor modifications to Kalarax herself, mostly inserting a lot of brass rods to support joints, and using hot water to bend the tail around onto the base (which is 25 cm square!) There was a lot more work on the base, using rocks, grit and sand to meld the Bones "ruined temple" into a larger scene with common elements from my Vampire army (see sig below)
       
      You may know the story of why the model is so big - apparently a communications error meant that it is twice the size it was ever meant to be? Because of this, I removed odd-sized base details like huge skulls and dinner plate coins and replaced them with "in-scale" objects like dozens and dozens of resin skulls as seen in the close up.
       
      My "huge bony miniature" recipe is:
      One can of Army Painter Undead Bone spray paint
      A big pot of GW Agrax Earthshade (or similar brown wash)
      A pot of Citadel Dry Tyrant Skull
      A large flat drybrush
       
      Let the model to the work! You can also use this to paint large numbers of smaller skeletons, of course.

      I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.

      Painted to match my Warhammer Vampire army, using old Citadel Foundation paints and a lot of Agrax Earthshade wash

      From the Mid 2000's attempt to revive the D&D Chainmail come this Battered Troll Skeleton which was the biggest mini in the Ahumut's Legion Faction box. He has been sitting unpainted for many years as I  have found with many of the minis the D&D produced at the time they where a pain to assemble. In his case the full arm and no peg or post and his skull with a bit of the neck was its own part with a minuscule peg and post that did not fit right and would never be able to support the weight of the head. also with the base you had to hand cut the slot that you would tab him into which is the only time i have ever seen that on a mini base. So finally after adding metal post to his parts and getting him on a base I sat down and painted him.
      He is your basic skeleton but I do like the little additions on the mini such as the splint holding the leg together and the leather wrap with a nail holding the arm in place  as well as the plate bolted on to the chest. It give the mini a bit more character. After finishing him i wanted to work on basing which is a part of the process i tend to neglect so tryed my had at some mud texture paint and still trying to get decent at using static grass and tufts. think it turned out alright but can always use more practice.
      Also interestingly enough he is about the same size as the  77004 Cave Troll. So its like a before and after diet pic

      I'll need a Pegasus soon for one of the PCs in the D&D 5e campaign I run for my son and his high school friends.
       
      The metal Reaper one is lovely, but IMO, too fragile for use with a bunch of rambunctious teens. I was looking around for some options when I saw the Bones Sphinx, and figured her wings would "bolt" onto Silverhorn the Unicorn fairly easily.

       
      So here is my attempt to create my own Bones Pegasus, since I can't wait for Bones 5 to deliver me one:

       
      I cut off Silverhorn's horn (and set it aside for later), and drilled two holes in the shoulders.  I took the Sphinx's wings, and cut off the tabs, then shaped them best I could to fit the shoulder profiles of Silverhorn, before drilling a hole to pin them with.

       
      Next up is glue and green stuff.
       
      I have a feeling he's going to droop over time. Not sure if I'm going to attempt to pin his back legs(s), but at a minimum, I'll probably glue him to a 50mm base to keep him upright, even if he droops.
