Reaper Miniatures Mummy Warriors and Mummy Captain

Reaper Miniatures Mummy Warriors and Mummy Captain

Ok, maybe a bit too obvious, but I have a few models recently finished that might have a nickname of Eddie.

These are all Bones figures.  The first batch work of Bones I have done.  The mold lines were a bit fiddly and I will be honest in saying I didn’t really bother in taking most of them off.

I did clean most of the mold lines off of the Mummy Captain but I painted him to resemble a Pharaoh so I shall probably make him a boss type monster.

As the basic mummies show, I made some difficult choices on colour.  I actually had these painted to the same colour I have seen on mummies on display in museums.  But to be honest, it didn’t quite look right.  So I went with the stereotype and out came the white wrappings.  I also elected for colourful clothing, and didn’t really drab it down too much.  All the bronze is suitably corroded though.  I am very happy with that effect, my first time trying it and a very realistic looking result I think.  A bit washed out in the photos though.  I might try breaking out the old printed wall backdrop to get better colour display and less wash-out.

Of course the gratuitous action shot shows our intrepid heroes facing the wrath of the Mummy.  I went pretty silly for their support in that I have a few scarab swarms ready for paint.

Hopefully something inspired you today, if nothing else showing what about 3 hours of work can get you.
