Actually, WaffleM, She does have short hair. When I was doing my research for these I found out that all Egyptians had very short/no hair, male and female. It was their answer to pest control.
So that is a wig.
Glad these Egyptians will find some use, Sir Rob. I liked putting this set together. The only thing I became tired of is all the bandages. Maybe the next set in this line will not have as many mummies.
I think the priestess would look more authentic in a form fitting garment. I can't think of any archaeaological images with a garment like this one. I am really enjoying this range, and wish I could do half as well!
Have fun! Steve

Steve, it is a bit too late to change, now. Sorry about that. I should probably get in the mode of posting sketches as I do them so you can point stuff like that out earlier.
No harm, no foul, Jabbro. It would have been nice if I had posted my reflections sooner, too! I meant what I said when I indicated I would be very grateful if I could do this stuff half as well as you do!
Steve, I've seen your work. It is good. You have a nice painterly style. The only thing you lack is the digital know how. To be honest, I like the old school feel of your artwork. You would be hard pressed to get that digitally.
Any input you can provide is appreciated. You've worked with miniatures a lot longer than I have.
Oh wow! That must be a hard work. But totaly worth the time which you spent with it. *nod* Looks really amazing! Really awesome set. I love the characters, the coloring, the poses, your designs. Really nice!
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)
