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.

      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

      I'll need a Pegasus soon for one of the PCs in the D&D 5e campaign I run for my son and his high school friends.
      The metal Reaper one is lovely, but IMO, too fragile for use with a bunch of rambunctious teens. I was looking around for some options when I saw the Bones Sphinx, and figured her wings would "bolt" onto Silverhorn the Unicorn fairly easily.

      So here is my attempt to create my own Bones Pegasus, since I can't wait for Bones 5 to deliver me one:

      I cut off Silverhorn's horn (and set it aside for later), and drilled two holes in the shoulders.  I took the Sphinx's wings, and cut off the tabs, then shaped them best I could to fit the shoulder profiles of Silverhorn, before drilling a hole to pin them with.

      Next up is glue and green stuff.
      I have a feeling he's going to droop over time. Not sure if I'm going to attempt to pin his back legs(s), but at a minimum, I'll probably glue him to a 50mm base to keep him upright, even if he droops.
