Fantasy Egyptians in 10mm

First force of lockdown an new-old project - Pendraken Fantasy Egyptians that will become a Siatic Egyptian army for MeG

Two bits of terrain/characters for other games. Thanks to Drew at Studio Bergstrom for finding these old sculpts from Eureka for me. Guarding the Stargate!

Really like the way these came out, Jaffa looking mean and moody, or are they painted colossal statutes?

Jaffa are awesome

Jaffa on guard

Bit more work on this army.

Converted 40 Pendraken skeletal archers to Egyptian archers

Headdresses and loincloths added

Cheeky top view

Unit at full strength with the stand I painted previously


These are the guard archers - 48 converted with added headdresses and armour

Certainly look menacing

And on these, with Phil's advice, I sculpted armour

Skilled, protected, drilled archers, yes please!

I also fashioned some wound markers from rising dead and dungeon corpses.

I based up the Stargate

Chariotry and generals/mages done, this was quite a job.
The batch

All archers had loincloths and head scarfs fitted, all mummies had their hands drilled and spears fitted. Chariots are actually Elven, and have had their yolks extended.
Red squadron

Blue squadron

It's a smaller squadron as the army only has ten chariot bases.

First stand of foot archers, need to order a lot more and convert them!

A stargate, that will form my army baggage element (thanks to Drew at Studio Bergstrom for this)

What else could I use as my baggage

Either generals or magic users (if I use them for fantasy MeG), two with various Pendraken items added to bases, and one with spare converted archers.

This also reuses my original mummies from the army. Seniority has its privillages!

The army, so far!

Line linfantry update! Ordered some extra 'Pharoahs undead tomb guard' from Leon, and now I have my two units of average Egyptian spears.

The present batch

The four extra stands for my original units, taking them to six stands.

 The new unit, night and Anubis themed. Was two figures short (coz I can't count) but added a casulty figure to fill the gap!

Marching under the desert sun.

All the infantry at the moment

And teh whole army so far, this will expand shortly! Four TuGs done.

Old Glory 10mm Egyptian light cavalry, acting as Medjai*. A gift from a friend as he could not use them.

MeG has a catagory of 'flexible' for troops that can switch between skirmish and formed troops. Here they are deployed as light horse skirmishers.

Deployed as formed

(oh come on, Medjai, they're cool, I looked at the one historical source for fantasy Egyptians, The Mummy [1999], hence the dark grey uniform nature of these guys)

These are a lovely little range, buried in the Pendraken catalogue, so beautiful sculpts.

Slight rebase/additions to the units, ready to annoy serious MeG players as these are going to become a 26th Dynasty list.

Annubis warriors rebased (one base) and five more bases added,

I added the blue war crown and longer cross braces on the chariot.

Eight originals rebased, and eight more added.

Pharoahs Undead Tomb Guard: The blue has not really shown up.

Hausa Project - converted War and Empire Arabs

So, a new project begins, is nearly finished!
Hausa Kingdoms.

So, who is this lady?
She is Queen Amina, an almost legendary queen of the Hausa kingdom of Zaria. Reading about her, she deserves her fearsome reputation, and is the ideal CinC for my army.

With her bodyguard of Khurasan heavy cavalry to act as guard cavalry recreating the scene above.

The shields were an inspired moment of 'hey that looks good'!

These have come our really well.

With her bodyguard.

However, there is no actualy figure that suited my requirement, so I needed a female warrior that I could convert.
After a long search, I found some female Skythians from  Xyston Miniatures ia Scotia Grendel. (The rest of the pack I gave to Paul).

Quite different from what I needed.

 Modifications in place. Thanks to Phil Lewis for the Greenstuff.

 And a few extras to go with,

Second in command, Muhammed Rumfa. Beautiful figure from Khurasan. Flanked by War a…

Mortal Gods

Footsore recently released this rather fun game, based around 28mm skirmish fighting in ancient Greece. Tried it at Campaign, then got a set for my birthday from Manny and Rob at Boards and Swords.

Picked up these two from Annie at Bad Squiddo games, Thea an Amazon hero, and her fairy friend scouting on guinea pig, because, well why not!

Turns out Ray also has Mortal Gods! He asked me to paint his stuff, who was I to deny him?
Slingers, Peltasts and light hopilites done, which finished Ray's Mortal Gods bits (just in time for Keith's order to arrive)

Light hoplites (shield transfers by Little Big Man & Victrix)



A musician, called Jeff

A spare base...

Ray's Heavy Hoplites and heroes from the core set, plus a Medium Promachos because I like the figure, I bought it twice and this one is now Ray's.

The heavies, 4 bases of.

With their veteran at the fore.

As the core set is meant to b etwo faction, here are two sets of commanders, including the Polymachos.
