Ashara Voice of the Tuat- Recondite Cabal Crypt Lady

"When she breathed, Ashara was known to her Basti brothers and sisters as 'the voice of honey.' All that changed when she was awakened by the Necromancers. Her once beautiful voice now carries the torment and pain of the Tuat. To our kind it is still wonderful but the breathers are often stricken with paralyzing fear when she sings her haunting song of Tuat." -Shefdu Sootootma, Scribe of Khepri

Finally finished is the Reaper Mummy Chick conversion into a superior Eater heroine of the Second Battle of Ankhara. She eventually came to Shefdu's attention to join his Recondite Cabal.

Isis Redo Completed

the shield for her to stand on was easy enough to finish. the real hard part was finding some really small bits for my pin vise that would allow me to extend the hole for pinning the spearhead so it would be more secure than ever before. After the spearhead was securely attached and the Gorilla Superglue dried for about a day I was ready to throw it all together...

Overhead view to show off how the shield fits on the base.

Finally, a comparison view of the original base next to the 'standing on a Typhon shield' base suggested by Alex. THANKS ALEX!

So my first Isis Harbinger miniature is once more ready to take to the tabletop and exact righteous vengeance on those who have caused such grief to her Goddess. But there are at least tow more Isis minis I have. Hopefully we'll see another version soon, if we dare...

Isis Redo Underway

Thoth's beak, this is a bit more of an undertaking than I expected. It's not the details and process that's getting to me. It's the fact that this was one of my personal favorite minis I've ever done and I'm hacking and drilling at it. Nerve-wracking stuff, this, but progress despite constant fear of a slip...

Special "thanks"  to Alex for his suggestion to put her on a shield so she'd be taller and not drag the spear anymore. Thanks. When I removed her from the base I saw that I had actually built it up with some layers of plasticard stuff. But it was too late to go that route again- a Typhon shield has been sacrificed to the cause. there was a lot of glue and filler around her tab that had to be scraped off (more horror!) before I could snip off the tab.

I need some new really tiny pin vise bits to extend the hole in her spear shaft, so this is the stopping point on the fix for now...
