Sol-Sarya, the Lady of the Birds

Raging Heroes' Sol-Sarya (resin, by ???)
The base is Scibor Monstrous'
The vegetation is from FR décor
The birds are from a photoetch by Eduard:

This was a great mini to paint. I love the pose of the Raging Heroes models. The birds were not that easy to assemble, they required two tweezers to assemble. They were stuck on the mini and base using small amount of green stuff.

Birds of a feather...

I'm trying some new material: Eduard's photoetch birds. Great stuff, but really small. You need a magnifying glass to assemble those, and that's not easy peasy.

Which of these lovely ladies am I going to paint first?

Elspeth von Draken, the Lady of the Everlasting Rose

Forgeworld's Elspeth von Draken (Carmine dragon, resin, by Trish Carden + Elspeth, resin, by Edgar Skomorowski)
+bits from Shar'tor + spear from vampire lord on zombie dragon + spears from Mantic + tombstone by Greenstuff world
+flowers by Greenline
+bushes and apple trees by FR Décor

The top with the spears is magnetized and can be removed for storage.
This fantastic model was such a pleasure to paint. I have to admit that I overindulged with the flowers but Elspeth deserved it.

The apples in the trees are made with polystyrene. I was suprised to see them disappear when I tried to glue some in the branches and on the ground. I realized there was a chemical reaction between the glue and the polystyrene: they just melted in a second! So I used green stuff to fix some here and there.
