Lost Soul

Vendor: Reaper
Vendor Part #: 66609
Scale: 25mm
Name: Lost Soul
Series: Doom
Sculptor: S. Garrity
Qty in Package: 1
Painted by: Samuel Reynolds

When I saw this in Reaper's catalog, it fairly screamed Major Spirit. So I picked up one, painted it up, and mounted it for Fantasy Rules!

The flames are basecoated red, with repeated damp-brushing with yellow. I basecoated the skull with ivory, then washed with dark brown. Then I filled the eye sockets with black, dotted the "eyes" with yellow, and painted the overall skull a pearl color (this doesn't show well in the picture).

I superglued the figure to the 40x40 mm base, then built up around it with cheap air-dry clay. I wish I could say I was trying to get cracks in the ground, but that's just serendipitous. I basecoated the base with black, then added green-grass flocking to emphasise the cracking, and to show a burned trail behind the beast.

Although I based the figure for 15mm FR! (on a 40x40 mm base), it would be equally appropriate for FR! in 25mm.

I love this figure, but I didn't have a particular use for it. So when I started playing Fantasy Rules! I based it as a spirit for my 15mm undead army.

Vendor Part #: 3017

Series: Shadow Corp
Sculptor: R. Perez

I wanted some undead flying cavalry for the FR! tournament at Genghis Con 1999 in Denver, but couldn't find any. So I grabbed the wings from Ral Partha's "Wind Riders" (RP 11-990) and added them to some Reaper undead cavalry (Reaper 03017). The wings are not ideal, since they are feathered instead of leathery, but after painting they look pretty good. The Reaper package contains four mounts and riders, but RP provides only three Wind Riders in their package, so I made three units of flying cavalry. That leaves me 3 wind rider body/rider pieces for the bits box (I don't care for them anyway), and one spare HCav figure from the Reaper package.

The Reaper mounts have blanket-style barding, which flares in front of the rider's legs as though windblown. I smoothed the front of this with a file, and filed the wings to nest nicely against the "barding" and the horse's chest, and glued them on with a gap-filling cyanoacrylate gel.

I clipped the lance heel free from the rider's foot, cleaned up the foot and the base of the lance, and bent the arm so the lance points horizontally, rather than the vertical carry of the original figure.

I used black primer/base coat, and drybrushed several times with white for good contrast. The barding is basecoated violet and drybrushed with lavender. The crest is red with yellow highlights. The lance head tassels got the same treatment as the barding, while the lance heel tassels are red and yellow.
