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 am really enjoying Rangers of Shadow Deep as a solo play experience. I am currently painting up the opponents and some rangers for the Across the Wastes adventure.
These are all Reaper, about 50/50 Bones or metal. Lots of drybrushing again. The scorpions are just dark grey spray, washed in black, with drops of 'orc blood" from Green Stuff World used as venom. I also used some foam clay to make rocks for the scorpion bases.
This is the Crypt Lord from Wargods of Aegyptus ( Crocodile Games).
He's part of my Shifting Sands Project.
Omar was furious!
His good for nothing son had been herding the goats and when he returned by the end of the afternoon one was missing!
He hadn't even noticed it wandering off.
After he had smacked his son around the head, he took him with him to search for the little goat.
They had to be quick, it was getting late, Omar didn't feel like walking around in the desert at night.
They searched for the little goat everywhere where his son said he had been.
Omar got an eerie feeling, with every mile they got closer to the ancient ruins of a forgotten civilization.
He rather not go there.
To his dismay his son pointed at some tracks, unmistakenly goat prints and heading for the ruins.
Cursing under his beard Omar slapped his son around the head again.
Let's go! He shouted at the ignorant youth.
It didn't take them long to reach the ruins.
Ancient walls and buildings, some half buried, some above the ground, others no more than mere rubble.
Omar had been there once before and that had been during bright daylight, now it was getting dark and he felt uneasy.
His son once more found tracks of the missing goat.
They led to one of the smaller buildings.
Alright! Omar said, you stay here and warn me if you see anything strange!
I'll go in and find the goat!
Omar stepped into the building, it was dark inside.
Now where could that stupid goat be?
He walked through a sort of hallway, then he heard a muffled sound around the corner.
Finally! He thought.
Omar walked into the next room and stared into two red glowing eyes.
