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! :)
