Shifting Sands Glitterwolf paints Egyptian Undead

Recommended Posts

 

I started out with an Egyptian Undead faction in my Lost World but it didn't feel right.

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-glitterwolf-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/

 

After some good advice from @malefactus I decided to move the Eygptians to their own thread.

 

The first one is my Mummy Captain.

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!

      This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric.
       
      Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back.
       
      CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PAINTED FIGURE FATIMA, NEFSOKAR CLERIC.
       
      There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated.
       
      The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.

      Greetings!
       
      I recently bought some Greenstuffworld colourshift paints & eagerly wanting to try them out, I searched through my (huge) Bones backlog for a suitably metallic mini. I grabbed the fantastically ominious Iron Golem from the Bones 4 Stoneskull Expansion & got to work.
       
      The blue areas are the colourshift paint, all the other areas are standard paints.
       
      I'm really happy with how it turned out. It's not as easy to see the effect on these pics as it is with your own eyes but you can make it out. There's no shading or highlighting on these areas apart from some silver to pick out the rivets & sharp edges on the arm plates.
       
       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      More undead for the table top, because you can never have too many. 
       

       
      These guys bring me to 56 minis painted for the year.

      I'm just about finished with my final piece for ReaperCon, and I needed a break. I needed to paint something fun and with no consequence. I've been eyeing this sculpt from across the room, and I just decided to go for it. Nothing super crazy, just some true metallics, which I haven't done much with in some time. Enjoy!

      This is the Crypt Lord from Wargods of Aegyptus ( Crocodile Games).
      He's part of my Shifting Sands Project.
       
      WIP here:
      https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/79372-shifting-sands-glitterwolf-paints-egyptian-undead/&page=4
       
      Omar was furious!
      His good for nothing son had been herding the goats and when he returned by the end of the afternoon one was missing!
      He hadn't even noticed it wandering off.
      After he had smacked his son around the head, he took him with him to search for the little goat.
      They had to be quick, it was getting late, Omar didn't feel like walking around in the desert at night.
       
      They searched for the little goat everywhere where his son said he had been.
      Omar got an eerie feeling, with every mile they got closer to the ancient ruins of a forgotten civilization.
      He rather not go there.
      To his dismay his son pointed at some tracks, unmistakenly goat prints and heading for the ruins.
       
      Cursing under his beard Omar slapped his son around the head again.
      Let's go! He shouted at the ignorant youth.
       
      It didn't take them long to reach the ruins.
      Ancient walls and buildings, some half buried, some above the ground, others no more than mere rubble.
      Omar had been there once before and that had been during bright daylight, now it was getting dark and he felt uneasy.
      His son once more found tracks of the missing goat.
      They led to one of the smaller buildings.
       
      Alright! Omar said, you stay here and warn me if you see anything strange!
      I'll go in and find the goat!
       
      Omar stepped into the building, it was dark inside.
      Now where could that stupid goat be?
      He walked through a sort of hallway, then he heard a muffled sound around the corner.
      Finally! He thought.
       
      Omar walked into the next room and stared into two red glowing eyes.
