Anubis Guard

This is (currently) the only metal mini in my Egyptian-themed mass of minis.
Normally, not a huge fan of metal. The weight is nice, but eveything else is a pain.
With this mini, however, it is a single mould of the entire figure, so that drastically decreases the hassle-factor.
The blade came a little bent, but it was easily rectified.


Very simple, as there was almost none, being a single piece.
I did remove the footer bar bit, and drill holes in the feet to be pinned to the base.
Mould lines weren't bad and easy to remove.


Primed with Badger Stynlrez primer, brushed on.
Miniature painted purley in oils. Mostly Winsor & Newton Winton line.
Took a couple hours to paint the oils, then a few days to dry.
Sealed with some matt varnish from Reaper Miniatures.


Custom made with the Egyptian texture roller from Green Stuff World on Scuply clay.
The clay bits were embedded into joint compound.
Base was first covered with Mod Podge + black acrylic paint, then painted in a couple quick acrylic layers and drybrushes.
