Playing with Fire

These are two more oldies that I’ve rebased and added some fire effects.  The first is from a 3-pack of sorcerers from RAFM 3808 Sorcerers.  The second is from Metal Magic’s Dwarf range; C1008n Leader, Armored.

The sorcerer’s baton or wand or whatever it was supposed to be broke off, of course.  I drilled out his hand and super glued a piece of paperclip in it.  I held the mini upside down and dabbed hot glue on the end of the paperclip.  Then I painted the stick silver and flame orange and yellow (let’s call it an everburning torch.)

For the dwarf, I used an Xacto knife to cut two small slivers of balsa wood, glued them together, and painted them brown. Then, again, I held the wood bits upside down and dabbed four bits of hot glue on the ends.  This one was more difficult;  the hot glue was very stringy and didn’t break off.  So I had to cut the strings off with clippers.  Then I painted the flame with some blue, orange, yellow, gray, and black.  Clearly, he is taking a breather after all the pillaging and plundering he’s been up to.
