I am long overdue to create a Great Bray Shaman to lead my mighty warherd into the fray. For the last few months, my Bray Shaman has been acting as the general, but inspiration has now reached the stage of actually putting together a new character. In terms of building him, I just used a combination of the ideas I put into practice on my other heroes, the Wargor and the Bray Shaman. The body is a normal Gor, though I was careful to select one that has a knife on his belt to represent the Jagged Dagger. The head is also a Gor, though the horns are from the Bestigor Gouge-Horn. All the Bestigor heads are too armoured to make good wizards, but the Gor horns aren’t impressive enough. Like the Wargor, the cloak is from a Warrior of Chaos. This time I was much more careful cleaning it up and (unusually for me) didn’t cut myself in the process. Since I almost always equip the Great Bray Shaman with Steel Claws, I had to think of something suitable. Luckily, I was able to take some Lightning Claws left over from some Terminators that Furycat has in his collection. As weapons they look hopelessly impractical, but the overall effect is rather pleasing.
How is it that however smooth I think I’ve done the Milliput, it always looks really rough in the photos. Oh well, the camera never lies.
I went for a ‘standing tall and shouting defiance and rage at the uncaring sky’ kind of pose, which I’m happy with although it does mean he’s leaning backwards a little. Overall, I’m really pleased with the way this came out. Now I just need to get on and put some paint on him.
