Shifting Sands Glitterwolf paints Egyptian Undead

Recommended Posts

More work on the Warcats, spots/stripes etc will come later.

There is still a hidden place deep in the desert where the ancient civilization still exists.

They are ruled by a Pharaoh who in turn is ruled by the Tomb Lords.

When the Tomb Lords go to war they sometimes call upon their living allies.


In particular the beasthandlers are often called upon.

The young cats were imported from the jungles and savannahs that were once part of the Tomb Lord's Empire.

Besides the common lions, panthers and such they have bred the most vicious ones to create unique monsters.

By breeding with the biggest and most ferocious of the black panthers they can now field huge black panthers almost three times the size of a normal one.


And then there is the ultimate warcat.

It has been said this is a breed brought to Earth by the Goddes Bast herself.

This is a ferocious prehistoric monster larger than a lion and even larger than the huge black panthers bred for war.

There are only a few left, but no enemy has survived an attack of the Nehekharan Warcats!


One of the Pharaoh's daughters is leading the Warcats, here she is with her favorite Panther.





The mighty Lion.




The smaller but no less ferocious Leopard





A huge Black Panther, only after selective breeding one can field such a monster even bigger than the Lion.





The Nehekharan Warcat. A legendary beast, the largest cat of them all.

These are great! Hurl a bundle of catnip on the enemy and release the kitties!

Release ALL the Kittehs! They're really looking great!


Thanks friends!


Right now I will first paint the Egyptian minis I already have ( and that I ordered lately) when I have painted the bulk of those I might add to the units I created.

Maybe more Warcats will be added then, for now it's a unit of five.


Soon I will start painting the spots and stripes and such.


I also would like a unit of baboons, but I only have the tiny one that came with the Princess.

Anyone know of good 25/28 mm baboon minis?

I'm talking real ones not armored ones.

And now to paint it all.

There is still an order pending from Crocodile Games which will bring more Mummies and Anubi.


I promised myself to paint the bulk of the army before I buy anything more.

But..ehhh..TMS Undying Dynasties? OMG!

There are a "few" things I might want to add to this Army!


Some inspirational artwork for reference and to stay in the mood.

Some Reaper Worn Navy for the Princess her hair, eyes and some of the cats their eyes.

Also made a wash out of it for the Black Panther.

Scale 75 Emerald Alchemy for her jewelry.


Also primed and based the Avatar of Thoth.

I used Procreate and the Greenstuffworld Egyptian Rollerpin for the stoneworks beneath his feet.


Reaper Red Liner and Sepia Liner for him and the base.

Suddenly got an idea while at work, writing it down in order not to forget.


Creating a Casket of Souls for my Tomb Lords Army.

( The original from GW is OOP and bloody expensive as is the TMS resin one)


I think I have a few parts that I can use.


  • Caster - Fatima from the Nefsokar Range.
  • Casket - make it from putty/plastic/wood and use the Egyptian roller Pin for the glyphs./ Use a tomb form Bones III change it into Egyptian with the pin.
  • Ornament - Crocodile Games Apis Bull / Anubis box/Seth Satuette or Toob Animals Scorpion.
  • Pile of skulls from Greenstuffworld and or Crunch plate.
  • Guards - Anubi Guards from Reaper/ Tomb Guards from Reaper.
  • Ghosts/spirits flying out of them? Grenadier Ghost/Bones Banshee translucent / sculpt ghostly trails with skulls at the end.

Set up,


Linked the pics because of Fatima's nudity.






Not certain about the Scorpion yet.


I ordered these, depending on their size I might choose one of these.

Ohhh my, that Avatar of Thoth is going to look epic in red....


That's what I hope!

Most people paint it white, but there also Red Ibises, so I figured it would make a nice change.

      I recently finished playing Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire and felt the urge to paint something piratey.  There is a lot of room for improvement, and I regret my colour scheme (It is lacking a bit of contrast) but I still enjoyed painting this one, I even felt adventurous enough to attempt some weathering on the sword which didn't turn out as horrible as I anticipated.  Overall a good learning exercise.

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
      I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more.
      However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style.
      This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
      In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
      There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
      I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
      Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
      Enjoy! ( or not)
      Bats and a Murder of Crows
      EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe.
      Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
      The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.  ( Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon) and the Egyptian ones are in Shifting Sands Project)
      EDIT - Asked to merge my Undead Threads into one.
      Now Lords and Ladies of Death.
      This is for all the Ghotic Undead and their friends like Werewolves/Witches/Demons etc etc..


      Eldessa Necromancer

      Ral Partha Female Vampire

      Lurien and Aysa

      Bat Demon

      I am really enjoying Rangers of Shadow Deep as a solo play experience. I am currently painting up the opponents and some rangers for the Across the Wastes adventure. 
      These are all Reaper, about 50/50 Bones or metal. Lots of drybrushing again. The scorpions are just dark grey spray, washed in black, with drops of 'orc blood" from Green Stuff World used as venom. I also used some foam clay to make rocks for the scorpion bases.

      So I started 3D printing and one of the models was a female Vampire, I scaled her down to size since she was actually a large model.
      I was inspired to paint her like Elvira.
