This is a sorcerer from Grenadier’s Wizards box set. I tried to paint the crystal ball as though it is reflecting the sky (top half) and earth (bottom half). It was also another experiment in painting white.
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.
