I was also able to complete the Male High Wizard figure from the 30 New Bones Set as an additional figure this week. I must say that since the Kickstarter arrived I have never particularly liked this figure. I find it to be too stylized and too busy, and with too many little unnecessary greeblies all over that would have to be painted. So, last week as I was pondering what to do with it, I got in my head to do it as a statue. Perhaps it's the kindly wizard who saved the town from some dire beastie ages ago, or maybe the evil wizard who has ruled the town for ages and has a large ego. I had seen in the past some folks use old figures to do very cool verdigris covered statues for their miniature towns, and I thought this would give me a chance to try my hand at it.
I had prepped this figure a while back in the usual way; soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying. I also had sprayed it with the Krylon with Fusion Flat Black back when I was still using spray primer. To help with my statue look, I dug around and found an old plaster hexagonal piece from a long ago terrain project, and a small wooden hexagon from a pack of wood shapes I bought from a local craft store. I glued them both to a 1" black-primed fender washer base, and then the figure on top, with Aleene's Tacky glue. I let this dry and then glued the whole assembly to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of Elmer's white glue.
