Looking forward! Myself, I'm a fan of the Nefsokar Awakened (14399) as the Mummy--and don't forget the Sea Creature of Blood Reef (50168/77189) or its NSFW genderflipped counterpart, the Water Demon (02133)!

Thanks!

 

I briefly considered Creature from the Black Lagoon and Phantom of the Opera, but couldn't find satisfactory minis. Maybe next year! :)

Got started on the mummy. 20181010_132154.thumb.jpg.834ec007b94ba65df9f62cc44da1b70e.jpg

Pretty straightforward basecoat: white linen for the bandages and ghoul skin for the flesh colour. I also mixed up some leather brown and dirty bone be to get the sandstone colour for the base.

 

Then I hit it with a brown wash:

Instantly aged linens!

 

Next up: maybe a bit of dry brushing to pull some features out. Maybe add glowing eyes?

Decided to go with Emerald Green (MSP 09103) for the eyes.

Tried to get a nice close-up, but my zoom/focus is being uncooperative.

Did some touch up on the ghoulish skin and feeling pretty good about it. 

 

Next steps:

Cape n' pants!!

By the way, if anyone has some hallowe'en themed music, I could use some painting soundtrack ideas. Currently on the playlist:

Lullaby - The Cure

Everyday is Halloween - Ministry

Bela Lugosi's Dead - Bauhaus

Very nice!, As to themed music, there was an album called Classics from the Crypt, which is a compilation of spooky classical pieces, I think it can still be found on youtube. 

Thanks for the suggestion! Also, I suppose I should also add "Monster Mash" to the list. For posterity.

And a great job. Beautiful wish red on the cloak. 

Thanks very much! :)

      It's night, it rains and it seems everybody in this forsaken town has closed their doors and windows.
      Even the Inn seems to be closed, why?
      One would think the villagers are afraid of something.
       
      You hear the sound of wings in the dark sky above you.
      Suddenly you hear a soft voice:
      All alone in the dark? How nice!
       
      You turn around and the last thing you see is the Necromera.

      The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb.  Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance.  A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall.  Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
       
      The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal.  On top sits a small box.
       
      Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box.  He lifts the lid and peers inside.
       
      "Ah, there's my old minis!"
       
      Who's Your Mummy?
       
      Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet.  This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.

       
      These mummies were one of my first large painting projects.  It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously.  They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power.  After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.
       
      What's your favorite mummy encounter?

      I painted some Warhammer snake elves up as corn snakes a while back and really liked how they came out. I didn't think the full pattern would work well on a hydra but I went with the same colours and I'm pretty pleased with the result.
