    Hi to you all

    I have recently received this from Hugo ( he of RP fame ) who set up OMEN MINIATURES to enter a world we have seen in Egyptian depictions in tombs ...that of the gods

    Here is the link to Omen's original announcement https://www.planetfigure.com/threads/1-12-anubis-bust.188418/


    This piece has been available a little while ( from SK Miniatures and others etc in the UK ) and we have seen several pieces painted up here on PF as well as on social media

    Which you can see here on PF threads

    Anubis is seen carrying a crook and a Ankh ( = key of life ) these are included in the piece

    The release was received well packed in a black box with a black slip over cover ....all very sinister looking ...ideal for the release , the pieces was very well packed in a tight clear bag and surrounded by a mass of bubble wrap ( this is good to see such care as there are 2 very prominant ears on the piece which could easily be damaged )

    On closer inspection the piece hanging over at the lower back must have snapped off as it had been stuck , you can see the repair carried out ...but with a little bit of sanding this can be sorted quickly

    At the bottom of the box the insert was found

    Parts consist of Main Torso, 2 pieces of a cloak , 2 side pieces ( at head ) the crook and the Ankh and of course the insert

    Prep

    Very little to say ...remove the casting remnant from the underside of torso , fit cloak and side pieces , slight sanding around the crook and Ankh and fit

    General comments
    • Casting quality very high
    • Quality resin used
    • Sharp definition
    • Textures

    Lets look at the resin

    Main Torso

    Consisting of the head turned to the left , the cast flows well running at the lower edge

    The detail work on the shoulder area is really good and again like the RP releases ..there are textures everywhere , on the belts and the cord around the neck

    There is also stitching and designs all very sharply cast

    The head is another really fine area for textures the skin is excellent , good work on the nose and the eyes look beady and very sinister even unpainted !!

    The ears are a triumph in both casting and shaping

    At the head sides a cutout for the small attachments , at the rear 3 cutouts the larger 2 for fitting the cloak pieces the smaller one being for the crook , at the lower front a cutout for the Ankh

    The underside is scooped out and looks cleanly shaped

    RP Anubis 017.jpg RP Anubis 018.jpg RP Anubis 021.jpg

    Cloak

    Consisting of 2 separate pieces both with a circular securing brooch , displaying a design

    Textures are very nicely done on both and in position they look good and doe not dominate the built piece

    RP Anubis 022.jpg RP Anubis 023.jpg

    Side head pieces

    RP Anubis 024.jpg

    Sitting naturally one on each side (dry fit to ensure correct one ) , the strapping has texture on it

    Crook

    RP Anubis 025.jpg
    RP Anubis 026.jpg RP Anubis 027.jpg

    This is a interesting item , often seen in tomb pictures carried not only by Anubis but also by the kings and queens of Egypt

    The rounded top has individual sections all well defined , the handle itself is wrapped in a material but could easily be painted leather ....needless to say texture work is all evident , at the top of the handle a wrap around piece that has been sown into place by very cleanly ties ....again textures to enjoy

    Ankh

    The symbol/key of life and as the crook seen in wall paintings , statues, and many other area's

    The design is spot on well cast with some really good designs on it , at the top the end of the neck rope ...again good texture and fitting easily in position at the front

    Final Thoughts

    A new venture for Hugo and the team and a welcome one giving something different to the modeller , there are more planned for the future but in the meantime traet yourself and have agreat time with no restrictions on your version

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Nice review on this one Nap. It looks really good and from all the painted versions I've seen it seems to be popular which is great.
