Over the weekend, I finally completed some hobby! It isn’t much, but it is a start. While the model is not competed (or even started at this point), I am sure that my astute readers will recognize that this is the base for a phoenix, and probably come to the conclusion that it is for a Flamespyre Phoenix and not a Frostheart.
These same readers might also point out that I posted a tournament list recently, and there was not a phoenix in it. Let’s just say that I have had a change of heart since then. I thought that it was a bit sad that a blog names Flames of the Phoenix isn’t using a phoenix model at all. With that being said, I hope to get some work done on the Flamespyre once I can muster up the courage (and get some white primer).
When mounted on the base, I plan to have the tail of the phoenix very close to the ground. The thought with the base is that the phoenix is leaving a trail of fire behind it (like a Wake of Fire in its rules). The flames are crudely sculpted, but between that and the painting, I think that it gets the point across as to what it is. I intentionally left the earth by them blackened to show that the earth had been scorched. I am mostly happy with the results.
Hmm, I didn’t even notice until looking at the pictures that some of the green stuff is still showing! I guess there is some touch-up to do on the flames…
Other than that, what do you think? Does the effect work?
