NOTE: Updated photos on post #23 with 2 elements I reworked. Some of you may have seen my WIP thread over in that part of the forum; here is the completed miniature. My vision for Rahl was that in life he was a general of an army so vile that his passing resulted in eternal servitude in hell as an Archdevil. A mockery of his former self, his raw pig-like flesh a testament to his perverse overindulgence in the torture of any passing victim. Needless to say, this has been a very challenging and demanding miniature; lots of flesh, cloth, and metal. To make matters worse on myself I added the forked tongue using some green stuff; the tongue took me 2 hours just to fashion and get into place between his two dominant top fangs. C&C always welcome.
I'm going to try hard to do a better job with managing a WIP thread than I did on the purple worm conversion. In this case, I've placed Rahl on a raised wooden base which affords me some nice size on which to do some additional fun basing as it pops into my head. He's been primed once lightly, and I'll do so again with the addition of the green stuff, and some slight mold line cleaning that became more apparent to me after priming. My conversion aspect comes into play with the addition of a green stuff forked tongue erupting from Rahl's gaping mouth. It just seemed to fit when I was assembling the miniature that he needed this addition. After 2 hours of battling various iterations of failed tongues I finally got one that worked. With assembling, getting him on this base, mold lines and the green stuff I've probably already put roughly 3 hours into this guy. Here you see my version of Rahl side by side with the photo from Reaper's Store. It appears that Rahl's sword is bent in the store photo, and it looked vaguely 'flame like' to me, so I contemplated adding some fire to the end of the sword, but decided against it for now. Next step, one more primer coat then it's time to apply paint.
