Very nice.  I haven't seen people using these in a long time, which is a shame because they produce great results. Do you plan to build more?  

 

 

Mummies or terrain? Yes to both!

 

I would like to get the Croc games mummy warriors and archers eventually. The mummies are my answer to Stargrave Quarantine bloater zombies. All wrapped up so they stay fresh, until a hero pokes one with a sword... 

 

Hirst Arts? I think the local Canadian Tire stocks plaster of paris just for me. I really should just phone up a cement truck full.  I can see the appeal of 3D printed stuff, and I have some from internet vendors, who I would recommend. My moulds were bought up to twelve years ago. They were an investment back then and I still love them.  I've never been mathmatical enough to take an engineering or surveying course, so when I design terrain it's playing around with the blocks to see what looks good. I have tonnes of projects I'd like to make with them. I'm working though a variety of themed modular dungeons. Production actually steps up in the summer as the blocks sit out in the sun to dry, furthering the Egyptification process. I am planning to make some Greek stuff too, but I bought cake pillars for that. I hope to use some of my European blocks for the edging and such. (My Ghost Archipelago is Greek. Greece has lots of islands. Makes sense to me.)

Sounds like fun. Hirst is "local" to me so I bought in during the very early days and did a ton of casting.  It's all in the closet now but I'd love an excuse to get it out.  I did a temple complex for convention Warlord game one year, and had my Nefsokar out to play.

Top marks for everything in this project, from the construction to the weathering to the warriors! Who doesn't love a good cyclopean pylon from Nilotic antiquity?! 

Hope to see more stuff in this line, it's great!

I have The Sentry Box as sort-of local. It's one of N. America's biggest game stores, and they have lots of old treasures that you can't find easily anywhere else. I cleaned out the Croc Games box the last time I was in. The prices hadn't been changed in a decade, so it was a steal. I also got a whole bunch of Reaper Pathfinder metals 40% off and a really old Greek temple made out of cement or something. It is astoundingly heavy. I'll post a photo of it, we can vote on colours. 

 

We also have the Canadian Badlands nearby, and I love dinosaurs. So much has been written about our local dinosaurs. It's crazy to think 66 million years ago I lived in what was essentially the Florda everglades, especially in winter. I'm planning to go to Drum this summer and get some great photos so you don't have to look at my blinds next time. Drum isn't really deserty at all, it's bentonite, which is like the clay in kitty litter. Ever seen wet kitty litter? Not fun in the winter.

Hello there! Nice to see your work! 😉

 

I love the ruined guard post you made out of Hirst Arts blocks. It's simple and yet creative. It offers interesting game possibilities in a skirmish game such as Frostgrave which heavily relies on scenery. I am also very  interested see the other buildings that we can see in the background. 😉

Really? I didn't think my blinds were that fancy. ::P: The one in the background is the sample pylon that you can build by following the instructions on the Hirst Arts website. Mine does not want to stay together no matter how many times I glue it, so it will probably end up being ruins. Maybe sooner rather than later... 😈 The palm trees are just leftovers from another build. I buy them in bundles from online sellers in China.

As requested, here's the pylon. Nothing special, an unfinished version of the one that has instructions on the Hirst Arts website. 

 

Frostgrave always needs demons. When these guys came up in Bones 5, I had to buy them. I have always liked the flayed version of the Coven of the Wrack, which is a GW dark elves scheme. These guys are textured like they've been skinned. The paint scheme is on the GW paint app, but I added a bloodletter wash. The sword on the big guy was inspired by a tutorial at Tale of Painters. I painted their armour with verdigris to match the sword. The bases are in my Greek scheme for Ghost Archipelago. Whatever the current version of Bonesium is, I couldn't get though it, so it "cut my losses" (pun totally intended) and just glued them to pieces of wood.

My first (and sample) Sea Peoples warrior. These guys are believed to be from Greece, Crete and Turkey and are blamed for the destruction of the Bronze Age. Source say they were fair skinned, and it was nice to get away from the same palette of flesh I've been using on the Egyptian humans (Asar). These models are from Lucid Eye Publications, which has a number of pulp models as well as fictional Bronze Age. The fact that their shipping is 6GBP anywhere in the world is also excellent. The models themselves are nice, but I wish the face had more definition. Size-wise, they match my Croc Games and Reaper mummies almost perfectly. The paint scheme is based on one that sculptor Fitz did of his Amazons. I really liked it. Point to Reaper for the beautiful marigold yellow that really makes the yellow-orange work. 

 

These guys and gals will be tribals for Ghost Archipelego. They will also likely serve as Cretan pirates in Wargods of Olympus and additional duty as tribespeoples in the Tribal skirmish game from Mana Press. Hopefully we get some with spears and bows to round out my tribe!
