Alright, so I bought this Greater Helping Hand from Valiant Miniatures on sale because I thought it'd be fun to paint and it definitely was. I've been working on it for a few days off and on while in the Google hangouts. Anyway, the model's metal and came with a peg that inserted into the metal base that it came with. It's a beautiful sculpt, although it did require a good bit of filing due to a mold line that ran over some of the fingernails. It also took quite a bit of shaving off chunks of the peg and an epoxy putty to get the hand to stand up the way it's meant to. While looking into it, it appears that they make the same miniature in resin, which would certainly be less hefty. I wasn't sure what to do about the base and had an idea that since it's meant to be a spell effect, that it should be coming up out of a cloud of smoke. (This also covered up my terrible epoxy and green stuff job that I was really unhappy with.) So as incompetently as possible, I sculpted a cloud sort of thing using some Sculpey clay. Eh, it worked out well enough, I think. I had fun with it, so that's all that matters, right? Right. Enjoy a bunch of terrible pictures with terrible lighting, as usual. I wouldn't want to spoil you all too much, after all. C&C always welcome!
