I picked up the resin version of Tarja, Yaga Soul Weaver from Hobby Bunker while attending NEMPA yesterday. The detail is wonderful, as expected from a boutique maker, but the cast was only average – much worse than the Yoko the Psycho in metal I got from the Kickstarter. There were noticable mold lines, several small bubbles, and fair-sized gaps to fill. Not bad by any means, but it doesn’t give me particular faith in the spin-cast resin process. After assembly and cleanup, I gave her an initial directional highlight and started the skin with RMS Rosy Skin and RMS Flesh Wash. The base is from Micro Arts Studios.
I think I am going to paint her up as an alternate for a Khador warcaster – probably Zerkova because she’s the more wizardy of the two possible candidates. That will make the robes red, and the weapon (and ruins) have a green glow. Maybe this will give me an excuse to pick up the Secret Weapon Fallout wash I’ve been eyeballing but haven’t figured out how I could possibly use it.
