It came about because I had a (metal statue) in my old parts box...so I decided to build it into this piece (Cobra Shrine of Rama Kas - Evil Cultist). The size of the piece is 8" x 6". The statue is (the metal statue from my parts box)...the alter stand & rock steps were cast by me using plaster...the cobra was made by heating & working plastic spru into the cobra shape & design...the candles & wax droppings are all stratch...Since this is fantasy...I tend to use a lot of giant flowers (silk & otherwise)...as per the current movie Mystery Island and the old concept of everything being giant from the movie Honey I Shrunk The Kids...The base for the piece (as is most of my terrain bases is ceiling tile cut to size & shape)!

Hah! I have that idol model. Old Grenadier as I recall. ::):

 

You didn't use the two red "gemstones" that it came with though.

I just got the statue at a yard sale for $ .25...there were no gem stones...I have picked up a lot of parts, bits and pieces at yard sales.

.25 cents is a pretty good deal for a classic mini like that.

 

The gemstones are easily replaceable as they're just plastic that fit in the palm of each hand. I'd expect a lot of craft shops would stock something very similar.

 

EDIT: Here's a pic of mine showing the gems.

      Here is the giant cobra from Bones IV. For some reason I got hung up on this figure for a while - spent a lot of time not painting him.....

      Hi everyone, it's been some time. It's been hard for me to find some time to paint lately. I'm working on my Cat Critter display base as much as I can, a little every night. So, I thought some of you might like to see part of my progress. Here are part of the statues and "collapsed" pillars that will be decorating the display diorama.
       
      The lions are Reaper Miniatures 77341, sculpted by Geoff Valley. The collapsed pillars are 72591, Wizkids. I cut them to separate the blocs and painted them in white marble colors. There are veins of quartz and gold in the marble. As you can see, I glued the lions tail on their back to make them look more like statues. The lions are mounted on 74012, 25 x 50mm cavalry base.

      This is Bones Nakayama Hayato Iconic Samurai.
      I found his details a bit crude and decided to paint it as a statue for my Nippon Project.
       
      Speed Paint with the Reaper Stone Triad.
      Scale 75 Decayed Metal, P3 Molten Bronze and Vallejo Verdigris.

      There is a legend that deep in the woods around Kyoto there stands a statue of one of Nippon's greatest warriors.
      If one would find it and paid respect to it the statue might bestow luck on that person.
      It is also believed that when the Empire is in dire need, the statue will come to life to fight once more to protect Nippon.

      I painted up Aquarius and Virgo as statues for my Dragons Don't Share Ruins. My WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71651-dragons-dont-share-2/
       
      I am still working on the overall but I was happy with how my "statues" turned out so wanted to share them in a Show Off!
       
      I can't get over how cute these two little minis are. I had no idea they were so cute. I will be buying more to paint as "normal" but I think they make excellent statues as well!

      When I got my Bones III Obsidian Crypt I had a little idea.
      https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/crypt/latest/77637
       
      I put Kaladrax ( now Discontinued) on it.
      She made it her throne!
      I also included some pieces of the Bones III Graveyard Set, and a few other pieces I had laying around.
       
      One statue is broken because Kaladrax swung her tail when she landed.
       
      I made some roses with the basing stuff @knarthex had send me a while ago.
      Also my first real attempt at marble.
      I made red marble and white/yellow marble for the Crypt.
       
      WIP here if interested.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/75896-kaladrax-on-mausoleum-by-glitterwolf/&
       
       
      So without further ado here is Kaladrax on her Mausoleum!
      Hope you like it.
       
      Feel free to like, comment and praise.
      Any complaints...talk to the Dragon!
