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.
