Mummy Warrior: Figure 153 of 265

Chris Palmer

  This week, again being short of free time to paint, I skipped doing another of the Klocke Classics figures, and instead I pulled out another figure from the Who’s Your Mummy Set to work on.     I prepped the figure in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying.  I then glued the figure to a 1" black-primed fender washer with Aleene’s Tacky glue, and glued the washer to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer’s White Glue.
     I began by painting the body of the figure with  Folk Art “Barn Wood”.

     I then painted any exposed skin with Folk Art “Poppy Seed”.  Next, I painted the loin cloth, and head cloth with Folk Art “Deep Tomato Red”.  I painted the back of the shield with Americana “Mississippi Mud”.

     I then painted the collar piece, the top of the headdress, the scabbard, and the hangings at the waist with Americana “True Blue”.  Next, I painted his belt with Folk Art “Dark Brown”. The handgrips on his weapons I painted Americana “Asphaltum”.   I followed with panting his shield, scythe, and assorted decorative adornments with Cermacoat “Bronze.

     I then used the "Deep Tomato Red” and “True Blue” to paint the decorations on the shield.  I tried to do this in a stippling way, not completely covering the sculpted design, to  give the impression of chipped and worn paint.  I then took some Reaper “Surf Aqua” and dabbed some areas of corrosion on to the shield and weapon.

  When all the paint had had time to dry, I gave the entire figure a wash with  GW “Agrax Earthshade” wash, using a wet brush.

     When the wash had had time to dry, I started work on the highlights.   First, I added simple dot eyes with Americana “Olive Green” (Which is actually a light, almost neon, green).   I then highlighted the skin with the base “Poppy Seed”, and I highlighted the wrappings with the base “Barn Wood”.   I highlighted the blue areas with the base “True Blue”, and the red parts with the base “Deep Tomato Red”.   The gold decorations that I had painted with the “Bronze” , I highlighted with Ceramcoat “14K Gold”. I didn’t do the scythe or the shield as I was trying to distinguish between  functional items that were actually bronze, and ornamental items that were made of gold.   Lastly, I painted the figure’s white integral base with Ceramcoat Walnut. 
     

 After everything had a day to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”.  The next morning I gave the base a coat of Elmer’s white glue, and dunked it in a sand mixture.   When the sand had dried, I gave it a coat of the “Walnut” paint that I had heavily thinned.  When this was dry, I drybrurshed the sand with first, Americana “Khaki Tan”, an then Americana “Buttermilk”.  I then added a little light green static grass to the base. That evening I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote.

   I’m pleased with how this mummy turned out, particularly the weathering and corrosion on the shield and scythe.

      Lol. No, I didn’t go that far. 🙂
      I planned ahead and so I painted it, and wrote the blog entry, before I left.

    Looks great! I just got the rules for “Of Gods and Mortals” (a SoBaH variant) and finished painting the mummy lord. We should have a “Mythological Mayhem” game day soon. 🙂
