    *cue desert/Egypt theme music (Brendan Fraiser mummy soundtrack?!?)*

    Welcome, oh dessicated nobility, to a record. This grand, ever-expanding collection of scrolls will detail the re-awakening of Grand king Senwosret the first, his Dynasty, his legions, and his city from the dust of time.

    Currently, Senworsets armies are scattered. A portion of my tomb kings collection is with me, but a majority is 2 hours away in my family home.

    I don't have a catalogue of what that portion contains, but I will on the 17th of February 2018.

    At my personal workshop I have:

    1 warsphinx with crew
    1 tomb king from warsphinx
    Something like 4 charioteers on sprue.
    Excess shields
    Nagash (not really tomb kings but he is nehekharan)

    Currently enroute to my workshop are

    39 old style tomb guard
    2 icon bearers
    1 tomb king with great weapon
    Maybe a liche priest?

    Along with my other projects, I aim to get the majority of what I have done this year.

    Background:

    Warhammer 2 stoked what I call the bone-itch. No not that one. Basically, I get the urge to paint skeletons again.

    I now use the army for kings of war empires of Dust.

    I still keep to my original fluff. The legions March from the city of Quatar, which is always semi built into the side of a mountain adjacent to the valley of kingly burials.

    I've flipped flopped on paint scheme and will be repainting some of my classic stuff. Originally I painted shields and livery in white because I thought a city of marble would have pristine white shields. I now favor a predominantly crimson paint scheme.

    That's what I've got for now, gentlemen. Hopefully tonight I will have something more.

    Acquire warsphinx construction manual. Proceed to build in one evening. Attempt to build crew, acquire super glued hands, curse them in ptra's name and give up until tommorow.

    It's a lovely kit. So many great bitz and extra stuff to be used elsewhere. I'm sure you will have it finished up in no time. Can't wait to see it!

    So I was thinking dark grey and red color scheme with gold accents.

    Yay? Nay?
