Sobek was a complex crocodile god of the ancient Egyptians. He was god of fertility, wild sexytimes and strength, and also a protector against the ravages of the river Nile and its inhabitants.
The khopesh was a kind of ancient Egyptian sword evolved from a battle axe. The one on this sculpt is a little thicker and more swordlike than most of the ones I've seen, which makes it sturdier on a miniatures scale.
The figure is Reaper's 14381, Nefsokar Devourer of Ammat, sculpt by Bob Ridolfi. I didn't make a WIP thread.
I was halfway done with him before I realized that he was supposed to be a stone statue with cracks and chips in the stone. Maybe another time I will paint a version of him like that, but in this case I overlooked the texture and painted him with fairly realistic crocodile and corroded bronze colors.
And because I like to play around with photography and backgrounds:
Whoo! I primed these all last month after ReaperCon. And then they just sat there while I finished other stuff. But now my desk is clear and I'm ready for more art!
I am solidly in the "paint a solid color on the mini with a little shadow and highlight because I wanna play or sculpt" category. I also feel like I could have given my most recent sculpt a lot more love simply by not just painting her all the same shade of brown, haha!
So I've gathered up my paint, a handful of bones minis, my notes from Rhonda, Derek, and Erin, and now it's time to learn how to paint skin! I'm really excited to try out different expressions, skintones, and lighting. I went ahead and primed them so if we need them for any games, they won't have blinding white clothes on. I'm not certain on all the names, but all except maybe 1 or 2 of these were from my Bones III Kickstarter order.
I don't want to get pinged for nudity, so I gave this dryad a cute little Space Age dress in case she accidentally gets in the frame while I'm working on other pieces.
I'm pretty pleased with it. ;)
Ok I don't do that many WIPs but I thought I'd try on this one. This is so far a base coat and 6 layers of shading. I like to use glazes so the build up is very gradual and I have to remember that everytime I start a mini lol. I will put down about 10 more layers going down all the way to a deep purple. This is at the pure tanned skin shadow phase. It will be slow going due to work but I will keep up with it. Comments and criticism welcome and before it gets mentioned I removed no mold lines this is more of a proof of concept to see if I can finish a wip post and how my skin painting is coming along. Thanks!
Aziz and Farouk are from RAFM's Call of Cthulhu Miskatonic Expedition to Egypt. 14081 and 14242 are Reaper Nefsokar minis with great attitudes.
"O Farouk, the coffer was exactly where you said; I have kept my part of the bargain. Are you sure it was wise to remove it from its place?"
"Never fear, Aziz; the English were drunk and foolish with wine; assuredly they did not miss it in the celebration of their 'find!' Take your pay and go in peace."
"It is not the English that concern me, O most learned Farouk! There were writings in the Old Hieratic that seemed to bode ill for those who would trespass upon this sepulcher. The old men. who know such things, tell tales of--"
"O faithless Aziz! Have you forgotten the precepts of your youth? Immutable are the decrees of Allah; save the Most High wills it, the dead do not walk again! Again I assure you, there is no cause for your trepidation."
