Now THIS is a goldang Witch Hunter! 30011, Arkus Harn, is a delightfully grim early modern monster hunter, perfect for the Cthulhu-in-the-1600s setting of ALL OF THEM VVITCHES. That's the face of IMPLACABLE RIGHTEOUSNESS! You don't ever want to see that in real life. Bestriding some vanquished horror, sabre a-drip with its foul ichors. A half-pint Solomon Kane. Here too is a Dwarf Vampire Hunter from Stonehaven. I love this sculpt, from the stake bandolier to the flowing hair to the warhammer to the rad hat. Decided on a red scheme, partly to match Mira the Inquisitor from Bombshell (below) and partly for Carmen Sandiego reference. There are eyes under that hat brim but it's not easy to photograph at the right angle. A great sculpt, here to stab the forces of darkness. Here too from Stonehaven is the Gremlin Stranger. Rather a highwayman sort of look, but this little goblin has the Puritan hat and half-cape; he's got to be part of the same outfit as the other monster hunters. Look at that pepperbox pistol / handcannon! And those sweet goggles! No, this little gobbo is surely part of the witchfinding team:
Well, I may still add some more sculpted leaves to the base and fiddle with the reflection in terms of making it look "shiney" but for now, I present my crazy mad scheme of a project. I started working on this back last summer and it has languished on my desk through fits of irritation with the reflection, me bemoaning the use of monochrome and how it prevents me from doing the sneaky glazing trick, etc, etc. I could consider her done and probably sleep better at night! This is Reaper's 54 mm Master Series Finari, sculpted by the awesome but infamous Werner Klocke. I love this sculpt because it gave me a chance to really work hard on my NMM skills, and let's face it, Klockenbooty is deeply satisfying to paint! This sculpt did not contain a scary amount of buckles! Hooray! The idea started with me seeing EricJ's Ramos and thinking a reflection would be a nifty project. Then I thought about the Wizard of Oz, magic mirrors and Alice in Wonderland and morphed them all into this: For this project I wanted to practice monochrome, so the colors for most of the piece are pure black (just a bit), nightshade purple, dark elf skin, aircraft gray, leather white, pure white and a teeny tiny amount of titanium white. The mirror effect I devised using a photo of the mini that I reversed as well as a photo of the mini in a mirror to get the angles worked out. FYI if anyone decides to try this again, make sure to appropriately shrink the miniature's head in the reflection as it will be sculpted larger than reality. I played with the colors of the reflection, but I think I ended up using the ocher gold triad plus white and mahogany brown for the armor, sapphire blue and marine teal for the sky, the clouds are probably leather white, snow shadow and twilight blue, the purple is carnival with white and nightshade purple. greens are olive and IMEF olive with a bit of forest green. The base is mostly sculpey with a bit of greenstuff and the tree milliput and greenstuff. The leaves of the tree are etched brass. I am happy to answer any questions! C&C always welcome! Oh, and I entered it over on CMON in their All the Shades of Gray Contest if anyone feels like voting! I will bring her to Reapercon and am happy to let people see her up close! Just don't drop her... edited for larger pics!
