Twinkle twinkle...

Jolie the Astronomer
28 mm




Another non-violent mini... I always liked this one. Suffice to say, the telescope and candle holder were awful to make, too many tiny parts glued together. I wanted the two vertical elements to share a helical design but not "match", I think the compact wire helix ended up looking much better than the greenstuff one, but we shall see once they're painted. The "hatstand" base of the telescope used to be the fin end of a model airplane missile, it would probably have been easier to make it from scratch.

  1. ...and this will be painted "when the stars will be right".

    Great conversion it will look superb once painted. I love minis that actually don't have weapons screaming "im out of a wargaaaame"

    Maybe some source light on her and the floor (moonlight thru the window she's supposed to be looking thru) will do the trick here.

    Cheers, nice to see the good stuff keeps coming :)
