My last thread today, not trying to be a spammer. Just for comparison to the base of the efreet I posted earlier. The base is super fragile. I made it using plaster, and I probably should have made it with epoxy or greenstuff. I'm also not super happy with the way her eyes and the gems on her head turned out. There is not enough contrast with her skin and hair. I probably should have made the gems bright yellow or amber and used pure white for her eyes. Geoff
This has been sitting in my box merely base-coated for decades until a few weeks ago. This marid (water genie) is huge and heavy, made of solid lead, 3 and 1/8" tall including the base. The integrated base was an issue, as it was too shallow to keep the figure from tipping over backwards. So I fixed it with some fiber card and Squadron putty, and probably killed a bunch of brain cells sanding; but he doesn't tip over anymore. I used a lot of interference glazes for the pants, sash, and shoes. I am really liking the new varnish I'm using.
With Christmas looming ominously. I started thinking of sending a few yet-to-be-painted-miniatures to some friends. I ordered a few that might work if I could manage getting them done for The Day...of course if they get there after THE DAY, it would still be cool; just not quite as cool. All that aside, I did a little Green Stuffing last night & started the first one this morning: ...with some further progress in the afternoon: ...this one will be for my friend "Indianapolis" Jim aka Von Kurst. Jim has a Morheim game going in Araby at the moment; SO I fihure the Genie would go with the game & the Genie Binder I sent him awhile ago.
I am going to start work on this vintage miniature. I would appreciate if anyone can identify it for me (I have no data on it)...What company put it out...an ID/SKU number if possible and if your know the year it was made/marketed...Thank you for your help.
