This was my Duel entry for the 2003 Australin Golden Demon. I wanted to try something a bit more dynamic than two figures on a 50mm base waving their weapons at each other. It was inspired from classic sci-fi imagery, hence the bendy arms on the dread, these were done by wrapping soldering wire around a core of heavy coat hanger wire. I also wanted to have a flying figure that did not have a bit of wire coming out of an odd place or that was stuck to a tree/pillar. The flames were sculpted from green stuff on thin wire supports.
The big challenge though was the lighting. I wanted to go a bit more extreme than " Sister Joan". The challenge here was getting a strong effect without background scenery to reflect the light. I kept the hot /cool contrast high. Almost everything not effected by the flames if painted in cold shades of grey. The flame itself is big and bright to provide a focal point.
The sister is heavily repositioned and her head is scratchbuilt from greenstuff.
This model placed third in its category.
