Medusa Miniature

Recommended Posts

This project has been an on again, off again on the desk for a while now. The kit comes from Zabravka Workshop. It comes in 6 parts. Looking around for a link to share, I can find none. (?)  So I have no idea how to find them again... sorry.

The parts are very nicely done in gray resin, and shows little signs of seam lines or flash.

Ignore the little Medusa to the left. ;)

 A closeup of the base show a sandy base that reminds me of the volcanic sand that is actually tiny rocks. There are also a number of rocks added to the base which further expresses that volcanic feel.

There are two spots for added parts - one is an assumed stone hand holding a spear, and the other being a torso of a stone Hoplite (?) holding a broken sword. I used the V. Metallics steel for the armor, and red to add color.
Later on I would add some rust to make it seems like he's been there for quite a while.

I decided on this Medusa to give her a regular skin color and natural tail colors. The chest and hip armor was painted gloss black in prep for the V. Brass, and the bow is V's Gold.  To add a little snake to her face I gave her the slit pupils in the eyes.

The weak point of the kit was the arrow. I was about to replace the shaft with something a bit more sturdy, but then realized I could lean the arrow into the bow and with a dot of glue at the point. This will straighten the shaft.

Here she is with my ever present can of soda to give a size comparison.  I added the diamonds that are seen on some constrictor snakes, and that completed the figure painting.

As mentioned I added a few different rust colors from V's Rust Set to the armor of the soldier and spear.  The base was painted in a Black Gray, and then washed with Citadel's Nuln Oil.  When that was dry I added 2 highlight dry brushings of a medium and light gray.  With that I was done.  
Thanks for looking.
