I agree, she looks great. 

 

Is the base purchasable or home made?

 

That's a scenic resin base, I either bought it from Microart Studios or Tabletop Art years ago,

Not sure which one anymore and not sure if this one is still available.

Work will now start on Sssllthr..

 

Actually he is a Nagendra Warrior from Reaper SKU 14498.

 

But in my army he's Sssllthr, our hero from the little story that started above.

 

BTW, when I ordered all those bases, Tabletop Art included a gift.

Just noticed it actually ( well I had seen the note I didn't realise before that I got 3 free bases!)

Top notch mate.  I love the variety of miniatures you bring to each collection.

 

 

 

I never play the games, but I like to create a setting and then create armies.

Of course this means I need at least two factions.

But I'm blessed/cursed with this imagination thingie...I start to add more and more factions and oohhh...the wildlife in that area, or the Gods and Demons from that mythology?

Before I know it things get out of hand, of course leaving me with the option to pretyy much paint anything I like.

 

For the Shifting Sands Project we now have the following:

 

  • Tomb Lords ( The Undead, Classic Tomb Kings/Empire of Dust/Undying Dynasties Stuff)
  • The Gods and Monsters from Egyptian Mythology ( Sphinxes, Anubi, Horus, Sekhmet, Bast Warriors etc)
  • Ancient Egyptians ( Far into the Desert there's still a large city inhabited with those that never changed their ways and didn't come into contact with the modern World)
  • Desert Raiders/Nomads/Fantasy Arabs. ( The "Modern" People of the Desert, Tom Robbers, Merchants, Sultans with mighty Armies, Conjurers who summon Djinns etc)
  • Stygians ( The Snake Cult, Snakemen/women, Hybrids, fullblooded Serpentpeople, cultists who follow them etc)
  • Desert Creatures ( Giant Scorpions, Lions, Desert Dragons, Roc, Phoenix, Snakes, Lizards etc)
  • Explorers ( there might be a little Expedition from the "Civilized World" that will wander throught the Desert looking for artifacts.

You have this army down pat!  Not only are the models great, but the scenery that you have developed just adds the character!

 

Thanks!

More pics in the Show Off Threads.

 

I created that backdrop especially for taking pics of minis in this Project.

Some are too big and for them I use wallpaper/A4 printed stuff I downloaded.

I like to tell stories and I figure the scenery is part of it.

      Classic old school vampiress sculpt by Sandra Garrity.  Rawr!  She's a bit petite by current standards, so I built up her base just a bit.  But, oh, how that cloak flies!  And the ruffles edges on her shroud gown!

       
      I did the back in a cooler purple:

      I will paint and create a Reptilian Army pure for fun.
       
      It will consists of many different kind of Reptiles and Amphibians.
      Mostly Snakemen, Lizardmen, Frogmen, Dragonmen, Turtlemen, Fishmen, Dinosaurs and Insects.
       
      I will happily include any monster I think will fit.
      A Tarrasque will be the centrepiece at some sort as the Living Lizard God.
       
      I do not play any games, so this will be pure for my own and (I hope your)  fun to create.
       
      EDIT: The above was my original plan, over time and thanks to the comments made by other Forumites, this has developed into a story.
                This resulted in more Factions I wanted to build and paint, so this Project now also includes Pirates, Conquistadores, Native Warriors based on Inca/Aztec/Maya cultures.
       
      EDIT: And now it will also include Undead!
       
      ***********
       
      Captain Luigiano and his army had been travelling through the jungle for weeks now.
      The sunlight was blocked by the dense canopy of trees.
      Some of the men had contracted fever, and those darn mosquitos were a big nuisance!
       
      He looked at the golden plaque he had obtained.
      Gold, with a snakeman made out of gems on it.
      With this he had convinced the men to follow him.
      Somewhere in this accursed jungle there was a city made of gold, he was sure of it.
       
      They would conquer this city and become rich beyond belief.
      He looked at his army, they even had a few cannons.
      Nothing would stop them!
       
      Finally they reached a clearance.
      The men were pleased, at least they could see the sun again.
      They took a rest and a drink, tended to the sick.
       
      Suddenly they heard a loud roar from the other side of the clearing.
      Birds flew away, trees where falling!
       
      Some poison darts flew and two soldiers fell, they died before they hit the ground.
      A loud roar and an enormous terrifying Lizard appeared.
      One soldier died out of fear from just looking at it.
       
      Then the Reptilian Horde emerged from the Jungle.

      The necrosis carnex is an undead creature from 3.5e located in monster manual 4. It’s similar to a flesh golem, being an amalgamation of several corpses with multiple limbs held together with cold iron bands. They also have the ability to unleash negative energy in order to heal undead allies and damage living creatures at the same time. I was also interested in this monster since it can be created by player characters, giving necromancers in an evil campaign new possibilities. The problem was that I’ve searched the internet all over and could not find a good miniature for it, so I decided to create my own instead.
       
      I started with some zombie miniatures, particularly miniatures 77342 and 77053. From here I cut up the body parts I needed. Doing this only used three of the 8 miniatures that came in the pack; however I was careful to avoid using pieces that had clothes covering the limbs or torso and tried to create the mini as accurate to the picture in the monster manual as I could. It is said that no two necrosis carnexes look the same so in theory one could make others using the pieces left over, in which case I think I could have made about 3 minis total from the two zombie packs.
       
      After this I glued all the limbs onto the torso as best as I could match the original image. I had to cut and re-glue several limbs to get the angles right so the mini would stand properly (I tried heating, shaping, and cooling first but found the limbs went to their original position too easily). I also attached some pieces of wire in order to create the ribcage on the front as well as some of the smaller limbs/attachments. After this I went to work with greenstuff. I filled in the gaps from where limbs were attached and smoothed out the flesh. I also created several strips that I laid over the top of the mini to create the iron bands that hold it together. Last I placed a few tiny rhinestones I had on the largest band to create giant rivets binding the metal to flesh. After this all that was left was to prime and paint the miniature.
       
      There are a few things that I would have done differently if I were to build this miniature again. First and foremost I would have cleaned all the flash off of the miniatures before doing any cutting. Trying to remove it from tiny hand and leg pieces was incredibly difficulty so having clean models to start would have saved a lot of time. Second, I would have added the greenstuff in two phases, letting all of the joint filler and body sculpt cure before adding the cold iron bands since this would have prevented the two parts from fusing and left more of a distinct seam between the two.

      Another one bites the dust….😆
       
      One of my favorite sculpt…but in the old Bones plastic. I put a little extra into the base, otherwise it was a pretty straight forward zen of Bones quick paint job. Overall I like the scheme and it has given me ideas for when I paint my metal version. Not sure about the green face and the blue glow under the rib cage is too subtle. 


       
      And as an aside …..the quality of Testors Dullcoat is not nearly as good as it was a decade ago. The newer formulation continues to give me a semi gloss finish.  Oh well.

      My stash will arrive today!
      I haven't done a WIP in a very long time , something I intend to remedy.
      I am extremely excited to get my hands on my contribution to Bones 5, the Whispering Ghoulsbane. Maybe more so than any prior piece I have made. Seeing as how I don't actually have the mini in had at this moment, Id thought I'd fill this space with some history about the concept.
       
      I like to watch reviews for feedback on pieces I've made (and learned a lot).  A few review waffled on what the thing was, exactly. Part of me revels in this ambiguity -it is what you want it to be. That said it does have a mundane monster  origin story.......wait, say, lets make a game of it!
       
      Which "old school" monster served as the primary inspiration for the Whispering Ghoulsbane? take a guess.
       
      Wait wait wait! it's here, at this very moment! Delivery! let the prepping begin.
      Step 1: Open the bag.

      That is all for now.
