Big Mamma Gruntaz

Forgeworld's Troll Hag (resin, by Trish Carden)

This one was heavily converted: the left arm is supposed to have a staff, it was turned in a different position.The right hand is sculpted in greenstuff. The legs were changed so that the hag could stand in an upright position (she was originally leaning on her staff. The hair and ears were placed further down so that the helmet could fit and be removed easily. The two goblins were added afterwards.
The helmet was done with a ping-pong ball and a part from a Funko Pop NFL toy.
I have even invented new Blood Bowl rules for this star player. Big fun on the pitch!

Sol-Sarya, the Lady of the Birds

Raging Heroes' Sol-Sarya (resin, by ???)
The base is Scibor Monstrous'
The vegetation is from FR décor
The birds are from a photoetch by Eduard:

This was a great mini to paint. I love the pose of the Raging Heroes models. The birds were not that easy to assemble, they required two tweezers to assemble. They were stuck on the mini and base using small amount of green stuff.

Birds of a feather...

I'm trying some new material: Eduard's photoetch birds. Great stuff, but really small. You need a magnifying glass to assemble those, and that's not easy peasy.

Elspeth von Draken, the Lady of the Everlasting Rose

Forgeworld's Elspeth von Draken (Carmine dragon, resin, by Trish Carden + Elspeth, resin, by Edgar Skomorowski)
+bits from Shar'tor + spear from vampire lord on zombie dragon + spears from Mantic + tombstone by Greenstuff world
+flowers by Greenline
+bushes and apple trees by FR Décor

The top with the spears is magnetized and can be removed for storage.
This fantastic model was such a pleasure to paint. I have to admit that I overindulged with the flowers but Elspeth deserved it.

The apples in the trees are made with polystyrene. I was suprised to see them disappear when I tried to glue some in the branches and on the ground. I realized there was a chemical reaction between the glue and the polystyrene: they just melted in a second! So I used green stuff to fix some here and there.

Shar'tor the Executionerum

Forgeworld's Shar'Tor (resin, by ???) is a great mini. I had this idea of using it for the Dark Mechanicum, which implied bionic implants. For that, I have only used GW's Skitarii's Dunecrawler sprue.

The longest part was to create the axe. After that, every piece of the puzzle just fell into place quite naturally.

The Base was made with Secret Weapon's vehicle debris + bitz

I expect to paint that model soon but I have to take a rest first.
