    Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen.

    After some slow work of late months, and after long waiting for the last figure , the Mummy vigniette is finished at last.

    Its a Scifi vigniette, or call it how u like.

    The theme is about:

    two guys, treasure hunters, that have entered an Egyptian pyramid to steal a statues golden head, that is worth many milliion dollars. They found it and now as one of them is trying to throw a rope to the other side of the place theyre in , to have a tight grab with the rope . The second guy is cool looking away, but he smells something rotten as the mummy felt the loss of the head and is coming out , well with ,,not the best of intentions i get. No one of them two has understood whats coming after them , but soon they will feel the cool breath of the mummy on their necks !!! LOL

    If u forget the story, with any nitpick u can find in it (and i really was not after a strong story !!!LOL), it was just an idea i had some time ago and now i wanted to do it in a vigniette. And i finally did it. I had much fun with it .

    All figures are painted in Valejjo Acrylics, and some oil washes used where i had to .

    The walls with hieroglyfics are parts from El Viejo Dragon egyptian walls that i adjusted properly , reformed theyr back side with dremel and painted.

    The standing statue between the columns is just a scratch i made into epoxy putty , as also the statue head. For this i was looking a big one from a tourists statuesqe in internet, and tried to recreate.

    The torches were totally scratched also from toothpicks, and my airgun's lead bullets. The flames are scratched in epoxy putty also. Their metal holders are made from aluminium foil.

    The plague with the wall drawing behind the sarcofag is totally free handpainting of mine , though is mostly hidden.

    The columns are resin parts (thanks Kevin) that i reworked some with the dremel tool

    All 3 kits are from Andrea range and fairly good kits . Some modification was made to the Indy figure;s hands to fit my needs.

    If u think ud like to know anything else i will be more than happy to answer.

    I really had fun with it so i also wish u have the same.

    Keep Safe guys

    Good morning Costa's

    It is always a pleasure to wake up with such a beutifull vignette on the screen as you did this one.
    Beautifull, and something different isn't it.

    Dear friends hi and thanks for commenting .

    I plan to make another Vigniette with 2 Seil Models figures, The Byzantine Cavalry and the Mongol Warrior. Then i have also started Pegaso's Che Gue Vara (base ready ) working on Flesh. I also have at bench a Fort Royal 150 mm Sioux Indian , which will take me many months to do , as its a pretty demanding kit

    Awesome scene Costas. I love your attention to detail. It really makes the scene with the added extras. I see a definate improvement in your blending and shading and weathering.

    I had to reduce the size of the images as they went outside the screen.

    Hi Costas,
    What a wonderful vignette! I like the story you've told and the fact that the vignette can tell it itself without the need of your written version. Very few modelers achieve that as well as you have here. I also like the items that you've scratch built. Very nicely done.
    Excellent work my friend :)
    Congratulations!

    Costas, great idea for a vignette!! I'm a huge fan of the Indy movies so I got a real kick out of this.

    I actually have a 1/6th scale Indy on the shelf waiting to be painted. :)
