My second project for Fealron marked off a few firsts: First magnetization, first mounted cavalry, first Pugh sculpt.
Here you can see the 2mm magnets inserted strategically.
This is how he sits mounted. But, I wanted to keep it removable, thus the magnets. I confirmed it would stay in place upside-down!
A sharpened paper clip acting as the scaffold for the horn. I also sharpened the lance tip. It comes cylindrical out of the blister.
Green putty to make the horn and cover/reinforce the magnets.
White brush on primer, Black on the base.
I tried a little experiment with the base coat to give the bone a more orange look: 1:1 Ruddy Flesh:Desert Stone. It may become my go-to for bone work.
I took these pictures during the WIP phase of my gift for Fealron.
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.

Trying to get back into painting and out of my comfort zone, here is Silverhorn:
Nothing wild really, but it was a good exercise in painting up from gray to white. Not perfect but he turned out much better than anticipated, so I’m calling this one a win.
I put two entries into the recent Reaper Facebook Convert and Paint contest. This first one didn't get many votes, which doesn't surprise me as I think not too many people knew what it was and it was on the weirder side. Plus the paint job itself was kind of bland. But I like the idea of it because of what it is. It is a tikbalang - a malevolent, mythical Filipino creature that leads travelers astray or plays tricks on them. It has a horse's head, a bony body, and long, disproportioned limbs.
I used these minis to make it. The wendigo's head was chopped off. Then I took the head of the Silverhorn, removed the horn and did some filing and sculpting to get it to join properly to the body of the wendigo. Very minimal green stuff use outside of filling seams; I filled in the wendigo's hooves, which were cloven, and rebuilt a bit of the mane so it joined smoothly with the rest of the body.
And I saved the body of the unicorn. At some point I'll have to convert it into a centaur!
