I painted this model for my D&D Campaign. It is a multi part model sculpted by Andy Foster and produced by Heresy Miniatures. I bought it at Salute 07 and started work on it the very next day. This was quite a challenging model to construct as well as paint but I am very happy with the end result. Having said that I think I could have done the base differently. I have seen a number of bases on other models representing glowing coals or lava. I started with a black base and dry brushed the coals in layers of red, orange and yellow. However a more realistic looking effect can be achieved by making the exposed coals black (because they have cooled) and making the cracks between them glowing red and orange.
