Slave to the Power of Death

Tomb of the Screaming Pharaoh
15mm scale

Tell me why I had to be a Powerslave
I don't wanna die, I'm a god
Why can't I live on?
 

 

It was said that the pharaoh Ser-Akh-Aten, seeking to escape not only bodily putrefaction but mortal death itself, entered a pact with forces far older and darker than the gods of his people.  He expired, shrieking in an incomprehensible tongue, his body grotesque and contorted, and was hastily mummified and interred under the Elder Sign by his priests, in the hopes his madness would be buried and forgotten.

It was not forgotten, and did not long stay buried...


 
He knew the Black Pharaoh
Servant to the Faceless Sphinx God
He gave me the book of the dead

 

These figures were a kind gift from CP Models.  I made the tomb from Fimo (the face) and insulation foam (the wall).

(A bit of a "Zardoz" vibe now that I think of it)

  2. I really like your work here. An original concept that turned out perfect. The tomb is ace. You are right about Zardoz, but I'm also getting some Egyptian Greyskull vibes here :D

    1. Hmm, I think you're right! Sort of a mix of Castle Greyskull... and Iron Maiden's "Eddie" of course 😁

      Thanks!

  3. You made that scenery?! Amazing.
    It brings me back to one of my greatest roleplaying experiences - playing the Call of Cthulhu campaign "The Brotherhood of the Beast", where the players must face the Black Pharaoh Nephre-Ka.

  4. Ha, I didn't realize that this was YOUR work, when I commented on the FB! So, once again: "Up the Irons!" \m/
