The Prophet


This wonderful little guy was given to me as a birthday present from Raffaele of "Forged Monkey". Thank you Raffa ;) !

I wanted a desolate setting to contrast with the very serene look of the miniature. However I could not have the "desolation" overpower this figure, which is quite small as these things go... So I settled for a broken column, scattered parchments and dirt to create this feeling of a wrecked Scriptorium. Obviously there is still a bit of work to go...

I hope to be able to show you this little guy finished in the near future!
Also I will write a tutorial on papers, parchments and other bureaucratic equipment that can be used or created to embellish your future bases and dioramas... ("No rest for the wicked" as Gran always says...)
