Mythical Agyptian Mummies

Some more mystical elements. These Mummies are from Eureka Miniatures. As usual, they are mounted on bases from Products for Wargamers.

I wanted to come much farther today, applying at least the base colours, but the beginnings of a flu requested me to spend too much time sleeping...

The good thing is, the doctor sent me on sick leave for the whole weak.

The bad thing is, all the sleeping and "suffering" (my wife's words) take away so much time and leave not that much for painting. But giving the models a quick spray with black was doable.

With the mummies I managed to base coat

  • the exposed skin with
    • 1/3 70.950 Black

      2/3 70.981 Orange Brown
  • the bandages with
    • 70.847 Dark Sand

I then slathered on a different wash on every miniature

  • SWW004 Concrete
  • SWW007 Stone
  • SWW008 Baby Poop
  • SWW010 Dark Sepia

I highlighted the bandags with

  • 70.976 Buff
  • 70.820 Offwhite

The miniatures where then gloss varnished.

Finally, an oil wash was applied:

  • 1/3 Winsow & Newton Lamp Black
  • 2/3 Winsow & Newton Burnt Umber
