The base was constructed out of some spare Hirst molds pieces I got a few months ago from my buddy Nick. He imagined them being used a sort of pedestal. Instead, I have it as a pieces of rubble in giant skulls. There are plenty of giants in Rise of the Runelords, so the idea is that this bad guy is stepping across the skulls of his own minions. That piece of rock is actually a piece of mulch.
The base isn't nearly as cool as it could have been had I had the time to really craft it. If I could do it over again, I would have shaved off pieces of the figures base, so it really looked like he was standing on the paved stones more. I might have also mixed in a lot of human-sized skulls with the giant skulls to make the base look more thematic.
But again - time. Just didn't have it. However, you guys can see how well a Bones figure takes the paint. It takes it very well! There were no differences that I noticed in painting this from a metal figure, except, of course, heft of the model.
All for now.
