More Mantic Mummies

In the first Mantic Kings of War kickstarter back in 2012 they made some heroically proportioned Mummies. Which was a bit strange, as most other minis were closer to tru-scale 28mm and hence much thinner and with smaller weapons etc. Mantic has never been very consistent with neither scales nor styles.

Also, they were much more armed and armoured in a more Western and not quasi-Egyptian style as everyong was used to from Warhammer. And they were restic.

This of course led to a lot of complaints and badmouthing all across the internets.

For my part, I quite like the more Draugr-like style of these. Also, I tend to prefer the heroic scale.

I have a bunch of them on small square bases, and elected to rebase these four and paint them to match the single one I painted a couple of years ago.

After these, I have 15 or so to go.


I tried out a do-it-quick paint scheme, and when I get around to rebasing the rest I will probably do them in a similar style so they all can be a large unit in Age of Sigmar or whatever.
