Default Sandwraiths? Any ideas

So I've recently started an undead legion army. I'm sorta sticking to a desert theme with so my idea was to make my hexwraiths and other ghostly choices look like they've been summoned from the very sands themselves. I had thought just painting them a sandy colour but I want more then that. I had them thought about putting basing sand on them, but I don't want to ruin the details either. Any ideas guys.

Could do something like that but with a desert basing instead. Just have some of the models cut down and coming from the ground.

Well I wasn't looking for them to be coming out of the ground but more like they're made of sand. Im afraid I'm not good enough to be cutting up models like that haha

I would put sand on the bases but you might also add sand to various parts of them like clothes or the horses covering in sand things that are not going to ruined by sand covering them. You could also add fishing line covered in glue and sand and attach them to the ghost and to the model like the sanding is coming up to make figure. Painting it a sand color will also help show this.

You could use some of that spray paitn that makes stuff look like stone.

I tried it on a stature once, completely erased all fine detail from the model, but if your going for a "barely human moving sand ghost" look it could be worth looking into.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

@dragonkingofthestars : Yeah, the problem is we're Irish and Walmart - thank God - doesn't exist over here.

Regards,
