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.
Recently @Kangaroorex sent me a Ki'rinn for my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon Project along with a Asian Dragon, a Chibi Dragon and some candy.
I already had one of these Ki'Rinn and decided to paint them in two different versions, brother/sister? Evil/Good? You decide.
Anyway, as with the Asian Dragon I wanted to show their unnatural appearance by combining normal paint with metallic highlights.
So here they are.
Hope you like them.
