Dying Rich


Abdul was thrilled, they found a small room and it was filled with treasure! It would take them days to get that out, and this was just the first small room they found.

Rachid started filling a bag with gold and jewels, Abdul smiled, there's enough for everyone, but maybe you should wait to see what else we'll find?

We will be busy for weeks emptying this room alone, lets move on and see if there's more!

Rachid nodded, you might be right, but I'm taking this with me for now, he said putting a small golden statuette in his bag.

Wait! Let me see that, Hussain said.

Why? There's plenty here, why do you want this when I chose it? Rachid asked.

I don't want to take it away from you, I want to see it, there's something odd about it, Hussain said.


Rachid shrugged and opened the bag, took the statuette out and held it in his hand to show it to Hussain, there! See? Gold!

Hussain stroke his beard, indeed, beautiful, but strange, why would someone make this?

Rachid looked confused, why? what's strange about it? It's just a golden snake with jewels for it's eyes.

Indeed, Hussain replied, a snake! Why? Why not Horus, Seth or Ra? Why Apophis?

Who? Rachid asked.

Apophis! Hussain answered, the Suneater, Enemy of the Light, Bringer of Darkness. The only times I've seen images of him, he was always killed by Ra, no one in his right mind would worship that, so why make a statuette like this?

Who cares, Rachid said and put it back in the bag, it's gold!


Move on my friends! Abdul said, I want to know what else we will find!

Let's go, Ali! Are you drawing a map so we know where we are and can find our way out again later?

I'm on it! Ali replied.


The men followed the hallway and they stumbled upon a crossing,  now..which way shall we go first, left or right?

Let's go left Rachid said and he walked past Abdul and took the corner, a loud scream followed and the men froze in horror.

Rachid? Abdul asked, it stayed silent, Abdul carefully peeked around the corner, Rachid??? He tried again, no answer.

Then he saw it, just a few steps further, Rachid's body impaled on a rusty spike that protruded from the wall, it went straight through his chest, he must have triggered a trap, Hussain said.

We must be careful where we walk.

Poor Rachid, Ali said, picking up the bag with the golden statuette.


Carefully the men walked passed Rachid. Gone was the cheerful mood from before.

This better be worth it! Hussain said.

Abdul nodded, I'm sure it will brother, we will be richer than a Sultan, poor Rachid was careless, we will not make the same mistake!

Watch your step and keep an eye out for anything that looks odd.

The way you tell a story on their bases makes the figures so much more interesting, and I love the blues you used, it almost glows. Also, the background for the assassin in red and green is legendary.These minis are totally Ma'at.

Thank you!

The blue on the Anubi is Reaper Tropical Blue, followed by a Little Warcolour transparent Blue and then a Reaper Frosty Blue.

      I started this little side project in my Children of the Night WIP.
      Models are from Freebooter Miniatures ( Werne Klocke) the Crypt is from Minimonsters, Gravestone is from Greenstuffworld, the stairs are made of foam.
      Ahhh Love...
      When you find the right person it's forever.
      And by that I mean FOREVER!!!!
      Here's Mr. Mort, He's found his eternal love, and every year on the day they met he brings her a rose and ask her to be his girl once again.
      Her beautiful blond hair, her lovely smile, how could he resist?
      And every year, she plays along, holding him off for a short while and then agrees to be his girl, forever and ever.

      Hello All,
      Here is a recent work.   "Male Revenant" 77301.   I did change out the head.  I removed the original head and replaced it with a skull.  The skull was pinned in place.  When I first saw the miniature, it made me think of the old Scooby Doo cartoon villains.  So, I painted the skull to look like it is glowing a bit with glowing pinpoint eyes.
      Thank you for looking.

      Hello folks! I hope you're doing well.
      My latest painted mini : a golem of woes by Rocket Pig Games.

      I loved this mini as soon as I first saw it. I just HAD to paint it. It's a fun concept and the tormented faces were an absolute delight to paint. 🙂

      A soldier for my warband in my egyptian version of Frostgrave. Can't say I'm too happy with the way the NMM looks but I'm done with this model nonetheless.
