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.
Presenting the Scarab Mummy, a minion for the Egyptian faction in the game Twisted, he's a mummy that's been redesigned to have a more pleasing beetle theme (which I guess technically makes him more of a Flesh Golem).
Had a lot of fun with this one, I'm still pretty bad at painting gems but I think I'm getting better.
As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
A good friend gave me this out-of-production Tomb King for my birthday last month; it is a fabulously detailed sculpt, with vulture motifs and fancy collars and greaves. My Google-fu is weak, so I don't know its exact designation beyond "Tomb King on foot," but you might know better!
I decided to give him a monogrammed cartouche on his tattered robe; I had looked up Neferkasokar for a Call of Cthulhu game previously.
I wasn't sure what to make of the tattered stitched-together sheets on his kilt and shield, so I decided they would be papyri with apotropaic ensorcellments and spells.
And while I was on the subject, I gave a touch-up to some of the other mummies and ushabtis I'd previously painted.
