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?
my second miniature! I finished this about a month ago, but my matte finish finally came in so it is truly complete on the painting front. I'll be making a base once I get into my new house, so once I get started on that I'll add more pictures.
The last few weeks have been very busy with very little time or inspiration to paint, as the general lack of posts lately will bear full witness to.
As you might imagine, I was going for green magical flames. I struggled with this, and it did not turn out as I had envisioned it.
This one I count as a bit of a failure, and I am not at all satisfied with how it turned out. Maybe I will repaint the whole thing at some point but for now I am rather sick of it.
At leaast it does look much better IRL on the table than when magnified in photos. Somthing which is a small comfort. The white for "teeth" does not work at all in the pictures and I might just redo that part and leave the rest alone. Or not. The wierd thing is that the white "teeth" are not that bad IRL. But once seen, it cannot be unseen...
What is this sorcery?!
Gah! Even the captions are uninspired. I should probably just go to bed.

A pair of Bones figures quickly painted as part of my annual Thanksgiving Paint Binge. Based with white primer and then a layer of one of the Citadel white contrast paints. Went over it with a watered down blue contrast paint, then drybrushed white. Picked out the face and bones with watered down black ink. I think they came out pretty well for almost no effort and they can be used in any game where you need a ghostly or summoned figure. I'm tempted to get more and do them in red as fire spirits.
