Part of 03529 sculpted by Gene Van Horne. Constructive criticism and suggestions welcomed. I've been postponing starting this mouseling because of the difficulty of tight spaces. I've become more adept at using a long brush with a tiny amount of paint on the tip to reach hard-to-reach places without smearing what is already done, but it was still a trial that took a number of fixings. My image of this mouseling was the wizard Radogast from the books of Lord of the Rings (not that shown in the Hobbit movies, much as I love Sylvester McCoy) but couldn't really fit a forest and cute creatures on his base. We are left with soil (reaper muddy brown with Citadel sepia and earth shades), grass (Army Painter battlefields wilderness tuft 4mm) and autumn leaves (Secret Weapon Fallen Leaves Fall colors). I felt the 'staff' was much too thick for him to carry, and that it must be a way-marker. (Does anyone else make up little back stories for their characters?) Radogast is very much looking out from under his hat, so I've included a shot of him tipped back to see his face more clearly. This is photographed using a home-made light box and my nice macro lens. It did take a while to get the balance of light and f number correct. Apologies that its not all in focus.
