My first ever foray into the world of resin miniatures is this Firebelly, and I was not disappointed by the detail. There’s no two ways about this: the Firebelly is an amazing sculpt. After doing the initial clean up work I tried to bend the wonky parts back to shape. In this, I met with limited success, as the flame-holding arm went fine, but the knife and hammer handle were a bit trickier and didn’t quite straighten out. I really only had one decision to make here, which was whether or not to ruin the fabulous miniature by adding my own sculpture on it. In the fluff, Firebellies are itinerant prophets, not belonging to any tribe, so I could have justified it to myself to use the model as it was. But in the end I thought ‘in for a penny, in for a pound’ and went ahead with the Milliput anyway. I had to redo the necklace as the original is now covered up by a large bikini.
I really like this miniature, and I’m really looking forward to painting it. That’s all the conversions for the time being, so next up should be some painted Mournfang Cavalry.
