Hello again! I've just wrapped up another commissioned work, for which I should get another lot of Bones. At this point, I don't really need the Bones, but hey, I'm enjoying the challenge and the experience, and I'm learning a lot from each. This is for the wife of the guy I made "Judas the Just" for. She likes playing various fire casters, so he gave me "Pharess" to paint up for her. It's a very creative mini, I sculpted some additional fire for the base and mounted her on a washer. I actually mounted her on two - she fit on a 3/4" base, but I decided I wanted a bit more base to play with so I put her on a 1". I made up the difference with two-part epoxy putty - she is now a pretty solid piece of metal. Incidentally, I pinned her arm but didn't quite line it up right - so her left arm is a bit high and her shoulder looks a tiny bit padded. I will also say this mini has some really hard places to get to - the dragon blocks the right half of her face (and there's something strange going on there, maybe I got a miscast, or maybe there's a nose chain or something?) and her legs block a lot of her waist. I also ended up blocking one of her feet with the fire. C'est la vie. As I said - learning experience. I have not sealed her yet - if anyone has any comments I'll definitely contemplate fixing it. I'm not going to put a lot more work into her, but I'd love the feedback regardless. Pictures! Here are some from a different angle, so you can see the base work - the base was covered with playground sand, which I painted up as coals at her feet. This is actually easier than it looks - I painted them a sort of orangish red, drybrushed them in black, then drybrushed them very lightly with light grey.
