A small amount of work on Tarja and her base.

Progress!  Not much to say, except that I’m pretty happy with the red.  I will probably do gold NMM, as I think I can pull it off on curved surfaces.  I’m not sure what to do with her staff yet.

Tarja, Yaga Soul Weaver – Update 1

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.
