These guys look great!  Loving it!

 

 

Thank you!

Expect many more, I'm building an army for fun using mostly Reaper Nefsokar, some Wargods of Aegyptus, I might throw in some Dark Fable and Otherworld Miniatures into the mix and some older GW.

 

Basically anything Mummy, Egyptian monsters/gods and some living ancient Egyptians.

Not only does he smite the living who invade his lands and attempt to plunder the tombs, he does so with rhythm!

Warcats and Handler are primed and based.

 

Cut off the tentacles of the Phase Cat and used procreate to hide the gap.

Cut the Bones Panther from his brocolli base and put him on a Greenstuffworld Egyptian Ruin to elevate him.

Nice haul!  More dancing mummies to the mix~!  I'm surprised I didn't think of this earlier!  Here Come the Mummies!

 

I have a feeling that when the Egyptian Undead Army is complete and wants to unleash horror on the living, everybody will just sit back with popcorn and assume it's one big musical...:blink:

In the SHOW OFF for the ASAR CRYPT LORD,

https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87523-asar-crypt-lord-by-glitterwolf/

 

I wrote this little introduction.

Gadgetman reacted and I had to paint the goat that wandered off.

 

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 took 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.

 

 

So here is what happened with the goat and the SHOW OFF.

      EDIT - This is now going to be somewhere I dump all my Reaper projects while (hopefully) not causing chaos by misusing the Show Off section. I'll pop finished miniatures that are individually worth looking at over there, too.
       
      My first post on the Reaper Forum, so please be nice! 
       
      Not 100% sure where to post this as it falls into several categories. but here it is anyway - my Reaper Bones Hill Giant "Tribe" and their hillside display base. I posted these in my regular Warhammer forum but they are too far removed from WFB to gain much interest, so I thought I'd share them here in their "proper" home.
       
      I've always painted miniatures with the "excuse" that they will be used to play games with, whether that be D&D or Warhammer or anything in between, so my emphasis is on table-ready minis rather than masterpieces. This is one of the first projects I've done without a clear gaming purpose, but because I'm a gamer at heart I still needed to put everything on individual bases for two reasons -
      1 - "just in case" a gaming use comes up
      2 - because gaming bases excuses a gaming paint job!
       
      I decided on hex bases because I liked the way they tessellate
       
      The paint scheme, choice of pets and landscape are inspired by my AD&D days, I'm constantly trying to recapture my youth! (Glad to say that Reaper Bones have finally made this sort of project practical and affordable, and I hope to follow it with similar projects using the other trad D&D Giant races.)
       

       
      All 11 miniatures used (and the 11th is very hard to spot in these two pictures!) are from Reaper, mostly Bones. There are a few relatively simple conversions, mostly so I could use two pairs of giants without them being identical.
      The major scenic elements (trees and rocks) are made from errr real trees and real rocks, while almost all of the greenery is from a range of suppliers (Citadel, Army Painter and so on)
      I tried to position all of the models so that they are focused on something located just in front of the scene - presumably, a party of hostile adventurers!
       
      I don't want to drown people in images, but if there is interest I can post individual pictures of each giant and some WIP pictures of the project, as well as the identity of that 11th miniature...

      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
