Banshee

I painted this one as a last minute entry for the Oz GD 2011 - at first I wasn't going to enter, but I got home from overseas just in time to have a few days to whip something together! The night before GD was a looooonnnggg one, haha

Anyway, this is the standard plastic figure, the only change I have made is to re-sculpt the face. The face on the original figure is a bit ugly, I think, and I wanted the banshee to look a bit more mournful and sad, like she was grasping after something she had lost.

I tried to give the figure some movement with the positioning and construction of the base. if you look at the side view, everything is angling forwards: the branches of the tree, the fence, and even the 'ground' of the base is tilting forwards. So coupled with the positioning of the figure coming off the front of the base, hopefully this creates a bit more life and movment for the scene.

I had fun making the base - I picked up some of those ornate fence pieces in Germany courtesy of Raffa's tour of Augsburg, so it was cool to put it to use almost immediately

Good fun to paint, not too complicated, but I kind of enjoy simple figures. Hope you guys like it!

As far as results go, I was fortunate to continue my good luck streak and win gold at GD

There's something so special about a miniature that is not only beautiful but tells a story and this does just that. Haunting and brilliant

When I first saw this mini at my local store I thought it looked VERY boring and simple. You've really brought out the best in it and made it look great.
