Splendid!  I love the vibrant colors, and I positively envy your ability to paint a miniature face. 

I don't think I would have imagined making the wings of a sphynx so colorful on my own, but in retrospect I suppose it is only in keeping with the look of how wings are portrayed on Egyptian amulets and so forth.  Very nice!  You've inspired me to imagine a sphynx differently now.  :)

I'm not sure what to make of the ruins.  I guess it should be chalked up to "fantasy architecture," since it doesn't really evoke the capitals of any Egyptian columns I've seen for reference.  I guess I'd be inclined to treat the surfaces as all relief, with the "arches" purely being a decorative element on the surface, rather than trying to suggest negative space with the black.  I also think I would have gone with bland sandy colors for the base in general -- I probably would have interpreted the piles of broccoli-texture as SAND rather than creeping foliage.  Your interpretation, however, is far more visually interesting and colorful than what I would have probably come up with.

 

Now that this has finally shown up in the store, I hope I can find it at my FLGS.  I was wary of getting it at the Kickstarter: the pricing and apparent size set off my suspicions that there would be no savings for getting it as part of the Kickstarter, and that I might as well play it safe and see how the actual model turns out once it hits the stores.  So far, it looks like I had nothing to fear and I would have broken even either way.  (Well, except that I really have no particular use for or interest in getting a manticore....)

 

Thanks for the inspiration!

Thanks guys. 

 

@Jordan Peacock, I did use a pictures of various Isis statues as color inspiration for the wings.  Oh! *sand*! Now hat ounsay it, of course that was probably supppsed to be sand piled on the base. :rolleyes:  I had no idea what to do with it when I saw it so, I did what I usually do with unidentified base bits: moss.  Ah well. At least it allowed me to put some color down there to balance the green in her wings. 

 

@Pingo  She may be an intelligent lion-like creature with wings, but by gosh, lions are light colored and have clear nails. Anything else would just be silly. :lol:

      First April mini with colors shamelessly stolen from @Pochi's stunning work on this mini.  Doing a little research into the model it turns out that Julie Guthrie is responsible for an absolute ton of my favorite sculpts and this was no exception!

      The Crusaders thought they were winning, the unholy forces of the ancient Undead were almost defeated and they could taste victory.
      Too late Grandmaster Joseph noticed the Priest on a large sanddune behind the Undead's ranks, he was performing some  unholy ritual for sure!
      Joseph spurred his Knights on, but he was too late, the Priest uttered the final words of power and then the creature appeared.
      It swooped down from the sky, it's metallic wings reflecting the sunlight and blinding his men, and then it landed amidst his Army, footmen were trampled, it's cruel blades hacked through the ranks of his Knights.
      A heavy tail knocked Grandmaster Joseph from his steed.
      Lying on his back he looked into the Sun, a final prayer on his lips when he saw the creature approaching, a glimps of what was once a woman's face and then all went black.

      I'll need a Pegasus soon for one of the PCs in the D&D 5e campaign I run for my son and his high school friends.
       
      The metal Reaper one is lovely, but IMO, too fragile for use with a bunch of rambunctious teens. I was looking around for some options when I saw the Bones Sphinx, and figured her wings would "bolt" onto Silverhorn the Unicorn fairly easily.

       
      So here is my attempt to create my own Bones Pegasus, since I can't wait for Bones 5 to deliver me one:

       
      I cut off Silverhorn's horn (and set it aside for later), and drilled two holes in the shoulders.  I took the Sphinx's wings, and cut off the tabs, then shaped them best I could to fit the shoulder profiles of Silverhorn, before drilling a hole to pin them with.

       
      Next up is glue and green stuff.
       
      I have a feeling he's going to droop over time. Not sure if I'm going to attempt to pin his back legs(s), but at a minimum, I'll probably glue him to a 50mm base to keep him upright, even if he droops.
