WarGods Minis Month 2018- Serving Girls and Criminals

Even before hanging out a bit at the Crocodile Games booth at GenCon, I started painting these WarGods-related minis and thought about trying to get another WarGods Minis Month together for August and beyond (the"month" is a fluid measurement of time that could last akk the way into October if necessary). These will not all be Crocodile Games' WarGods minis but miniatures that would easily fit into the Antediluvian setting of Aegyptus, Olympus, Hyperborea, etc.
Not a single Crocodile Games figure in this installment! Hopefully next week will be either a bunch of Basti or some Priests.

From Dark Fable's many campaigns, first up we have a trio of Egyptian Serving Girls...

All three of these were started a couple years ago but sat partially painted until just recently because I lost focus and they all have so much skin to paint I lost faith in my skills.

I really love the apples or whatever fruit it's supposed to be on her plate.

Another Dark Fable miniature, the Egyptian Goblin. I've decided he will be part of the Nile Pirates Warband for the epic skirmish campaign I'm always working on starring Tebbi and Blackclaw.

A converted fantasy football mini from Impact. This is a slight conversion into the live version of a Crypt Lord from some of the old World Campaigns- Sejetmu Dread Axe of the Nile. He's the head of the slowly growing Nile Pirates Warband. I love him...
Below we have comparison shot of the live and undead mummified versions of Sejetmu. The Crypt Lord version was a random conversion just to make sure that my mummies weren't all Asar (humans) or Heru (hawk-headed guys). His backstory evolved from everything else going on in the campaigns and then I realized that he would be a great character to have show up in the Tebbi and Blackclaw scenarios...

Finally, from Alex Bate's Forge of Ice, we have the sleazy Merchant Häbo! This guy has been sitting partially painted since soon after I got him (early 2017?!). He will also make an appearance in the ongoing Tebbi and Blackclaw scenarios as a crime lord (spoiler alert!) or maybe he's just a misunderstood legitimate businessman...
Below, Häbo with some of his loot and a serving girl to bring him another drink.

Anubis Harbinger -First Mini of 2018!

The New Year brings with it a first mini!

This is a Crocodile Games Anubi Harbinger, on of the first figures sculpted and released for WarGods of Ægyptus. I've painted a couple of this figure before with different weapons options and the variant that's a human (Asar) Harbinger. 
This thing has been in progress for over a year. Now that he's done and off to his new home I'm hoping this small accomplishment will help jumpstart the painting engines and I'll get a lot more of everything painted this year.... We'll see.
