This sculpt, marketed as “Savage Horn” by Spanish company Nocturna, consists of twelve finely cast pieces of grey resin.
There’s little flash in evidence, but as some pieces are quite small a fine-toothed saw is required to remove them from their casting blocks. The pieces are presented in a sturdy metal tin, sandwiched between foam layers.
The scale is 54mm for the base figure, but the fact that the figure is mounted creates the impression of a larger scale. The kit base is just an irregular blob of resin, but looks fine with undergrowth/plant debris added. I’ve photographed it here against black granite, but have added a final photo with it on a yew plinth, its exhibition presentation. A display name plaque will be added to the plinth face in due course. Also, in the final photo, the figure has had a light application of Dullcote as per comments below, to reduce the sheen.
I had it in mind to title this, “Zotle Greasyshiv – Goblin Lord”, using the prescribed nomenclature for goblin names (Yes, there is one…), but for now I’ve simplified it as per Headlines.
Paints used are primarily Vallejo Model Color, Andrea Inks, and artists’ oil paints. Grass, lichen, leaves, and sands are from stock.
