Here is my first entry - we can still enter up to three, right? Anyway, my first entry! An entry in the "what comic-book nerds think is a blow for femininism and racial minorities but is actually, somehow, even worse objectification" genre.
Behold! The haruspica (feminine of haruspex - click to enlighten yourself via Wikipedia
). She would count as a wizard of some kind, of course - many different lores would work. Click for larger pics.
She is - of course - the Asdrubael Vect slave girl (the Sister of Battle) with her left arm removed and replaced with an Amazon arm from Wargames Factory. I trimmed off the chains, leaving the manacles as bracelets. The bearers are from the Crocodile Games Spartan War Altar set (ironically enough, despite being from different companies, the three models are all sculpted by Chris Fitzpatrick!) A few bits of plasticard, brass rod, a sequin, green stuff and a sword and the job is a good 'un.
The liver in her hand and on the dish is sculpted as a sheep's liver, and she is lying on a sheepskin. A friend of mine said the unpainted version of her looked like Eartha Kitt, and so I was inspired to paint her with a very dramatic, very dark African, skintone. I think it looks really dramatic, especially against the white bikini and the rest of the Caucasian army. The skintone is simply black highlighted up to Vallejo Charred Brown (Scorched Brown in the old GW paint range).
