Out-of-production TOMB KING from GW!

Recommended Posts

Okay, the cartouche on the drape is something else!  :D  Also, I really like the rich contrasts of the gold trim and deep blue parts that look like inlaid lapis lazuli.  I'm particularly curious about what's going on with the *inside* of the shield.  Did you free-hand paint various glyphs on the inside?

Thanks for the kind words! I appreciate it greatly and it's good to be back on the forum.

Double thanks! The cartouche was a gamble, but I think it worked out. The gold is ArmyPainter Greedy Gold and the blue is cheap DecoArt metallic Ice Blue (NOT to be confused with FolkArt metallic Ice Blue, which is much paler, as on the Anubis Guard's headdress.)
Yes, the inside of the shield also has those scraps of sewn paper (or leather?) on it; I used a liner brush for freehand. It's not my best work (apparently the shield and arm were originally separate from the torso, but they were stuck together when I got it and it is not easy getting into some of those crannies), but I'm a strong believer in the 'finished is better than perfect' philosophy.
Afraid the hieroglyphs are gibberish, though; if I had to do it again I would look up some excerpts from the Book of the Dead or the Book of Going Forth by Day.

Ah a mummy fan. Cool scene and cool paintjobs. I like them all, much detail work as I see. I suppose you are a more patiently painter in fact I would get mad with this amount of tiny, tiny details. Good job!

Thank you! The attention to detail really varies a lot from day to day, depending on patience and energy, but this one worked out all right. Had to do it in three or four sessions though.

      I painted some minis from the Kill Team: Rogue Trader box. They are originally a nurglish warband called the Gellerpox Infected, but I will use them in my Swampstalkers army for Kings of War.
      The second line in the big unit is made of Titan Forge ogre pirates mixed with parts of the Reaper's Crab Man (SKU:44110). They are all now Butchers, and they also have the dedicated hero for them (Fleshripper, one with the cleaver ). Smaller guys are Horrors, wizards in my army.

      I painted this GW's Lord of Plagues as a hero for my Swampstalkers. He is now the Swamp Drinker, one of the Reapers  (the unit I showed recently).
       

       
      And this Morphus from the (unfortunately) defunct Enigma Models was actually painted few years ago. I found him in my display cabinet and though he would make for a nice Swamp Hunter, another hero for my army.  So, here he is, with just a new base

      I bought these 16 converted nurgle warriors for my Swampstalkers army and added two Reaper minis (battleguard golem 77169 and Anval Thricedamned, Evil Warrior 77055) to get 3 bases with 6 warriors each.

      This is some variant of the Great Unclean One, called Rotigus. I will use it as Terror in my Swamptalkers. He's a big... fellow…

      Another unit for my Swampstalkers  I was looking for a suitable alternative for Scarecrows, the cheapest zombie-like unit in my army. These goblins from the Hobbit game looked like a good choice - gnarly, twisted bodies with some wounds, smaller in size than plaguebearers I used for a slightly stronger unit of blood worms (my other infantry unit). And I got them very cheap, second-hand - they already came primed white to me, which saved some time. Lots of different washes, picked some details (mainly eyes and wounds/warts - both with GW blood effect). Swampy base of course, as this is the main theme for my army. Cut some of the models legs off to create an effect of them rising from the mud.
