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.

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 did this one a while ago. My first attempt to recreate the painted version on the packaging. I'm just missing the foliage. This was super fun! :D

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.

      Presenting the Rotten Mummy, as the name suggests he's a Mummy that's going rotten, and he's part of the Egyptian faction for the game Twisted by Demented Games.
      It's a really fun to paint mini that is annoying hard to photograph, but I think I did a decent job on him.
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      For my Shifting Sands Project I wanted a Casket of Souls / Altar of the Damned.
      I scratchbuilt the altar from foam with the help of a Greenstuffworld rollerpin I gave it an Egyptian look.
      The bones/skulls are from the Greenstuffworld Crunchplates
      Then I added:
      The Caster:
      The Ghost appearing from the Casket
      The Guardians
      WIP HERE:
      SHOW OFF:
      One unoffending pic ( thx @Rigel)

      This is the Bones version.  I used her for an experiment with Contrast paints.  I think it worked ok, but the softer detail gave a less desired effect -- at least on the armor. I had to go over that again with an ink wash.  The red came out very bright.  Maybe I could have gone over that with ink, too, but I liked the vivid contrast. She is a vampire, after all.  I drybrushed a little silver metal for highlights on her armor, looks good in hand, but the flash caught it and it looks like white spots in the pic.
