According to the Google: "This undead thing resembles a child's skeleton with the paws and grinning skull of a fox. It is gray and covered with cobwebs, and dust falls endlessly from its mouth. It holds a ragged stuffed child's toy, its eyes pierced by pins, in its skeletal, fox-like hands. The creature is dressed in a small sleeping gown that looks like it was partially burned in a fire, as if it were the remains of a child who had died in bed."

You get two in a pack, so the next night I painted the second one. This time I used my new pot of Vallejo Pink and again tried some layering, which seems to have worked better. More sliced-up plastic card provided the floorboards, in black this time.
I tried painting a circled pentagram on the floorboards and putting her inside it, but as I can't even freehand a short straight line that idea went out the window and left me having to repaint the base.
Then I remembered that I'd bought a set of accessories called Wizard's Study, or something like that (the packaging is long gone; I cannot remember the manufacturer but this company's minis are grey pre-primed plastic.) So I dug them out of my bits box, picked a small pile of books and a clear bottle, painted the books and glazed the bottle and glued them in place, then attached the Whisperer.
I thought the base needed another element so I cut some 2mm plastic rod into short lengths, drilled them out, inserted small pieces of brass wire for the wick and painted them to look like candles. I added the drips and the pool of wax using Liquitex modelling paste. I am absurdly pleased about how they came out.
Alicia also hates this one.
I'm sure these are painted magnificently but I'll go ahead and not look at them anyway.ReplyDelete
