ROTA zigurrat with new repainted tiles... 5 Years, 5 Months ago  
I wanted to match the original DF intersection promo piece, but I just couldn't figure out what shade of brownish red that was. I experimented with at least fifteen shades, all very close, but ultimately I just couldn't pull it off. My piece looks like the brand new version, theirs is the weathered, ancient one. I just couldn't figure out how to get a duller shade -- maybe with my paints it just isn't possible.

In any case, I think it looks neat. I put together some HA columns and a large Reaper Warlord figure plus some HA pedestals, and I stacked the heck out of the layout. I'm very happy with this tomb. The lighting once again was terrible, I had to take pictures just after sunrise, so I've had to brighten them with photo software so you can see anything. As a result, there's a kind of monochromatic tint to the pics. It makes them feel kinda neat and ancient, but you do lose a proper sense of the colors. When I get a chance I'll post a more accurate set. For now, the flash pics will have to suffice, washed out by the hideous flash....

Actually, most of this stuff is Reaper. The mummies are from the Warlord line, and the Anubis statues are from the regular line. (Dark heaven). In the end, though I grabbed a TON of Crocodile Games stuff, the only ones I really like are the Olympus figs -- the Emperor and the Spartans. The Aegyptus stuff, I don't know, it just doesn't do it for me. Partly, I think, it's because they seem a bit small to me, unlike (oddly) the Olympus figs. Also, of course, the Warlord stuff is much easier for me to find, and slightly cheaper.

Yeah actually I recognized them after the fact going through some of my minis. I've got a ton of unpainted Reaper Egyptian, Grendle Egyptian (scenery type items) and Wargods that I've been planning to paint but never get around to it - several years ago I actually painted up some Grendle stuff that looked great - but I can't find it anymore - stashed away in some box somewhere I imagine. I'd love to do a grand Egyptian type set up. My world has an Egyptian based civilization - the Ayep - so thats why I've been collecting for a while now.

It took me awhile to warm up to the Wargods stuff - but I like alot of the pieces now and have a bunch - but haven't yet painted a one. The Asar have more of the humanoid figures - so I actually have several army packs - and then a smattering of other special figs from the other ones. When I first saw that mummy with the stndard i thought he was Wargods - but it turns out I have him and your right he is a Reaper (I also have several of the Reaper staue figs like the two you used - very unique gold painting BTW - nice). One of these days (soon?) I'll get around to painting them - but first I have a bunch of Samauri and related - as well as Chinese figures (Tale of the Monkey King etc - by two different companies - some great figures) that require my attention. Plus I have a few Heresy and Overlord figs I want to paint up sometime soon. I don't suppose Stephan has any plans to do an oriental themed series of sets eh? - shame. There are some very cool (wooden) Japanese castle models out there in 25/28 mm scale - but they are prohibitively expensive as well as looking like it would take a master modler to build properly (which I'm not). And nearly all the plastic models are in smaller scales - with one or two in 1:72 scale I think (a bit on the small side).
