Saruman with craban spy and palantir painted by Elwing-(V).
Figure is a resin
(was originally light gray) except for the "crystal" ball, and I got
the wood base separately and stained dark. Painted with enamels (taking
after Randy). For figures I like those well enough, tho they can dry
out pretty fast if I have to mix colors outside the bottles. I also
think it's a bit harder to really clean brushes of enamel, compared to
oils and (of course) acrylics.
The "glow" effect is mostly dependent on the light
hitting it so probably won't come across in most pics; it is also
partly from behind/under the ball - in the "pocket" it sets in, I
painted like flames (yellows, oranges and a bit of red). For now am
keeping the ball unglued in place so it can be peeked at - just have to
remember it's "loose" if I move it around.
I like the "Wiz" size - more than just a bit larger
would be difficult to manage holding/getting at angles I'd want, and
more than a bit smaller (I'm finding with my gnomes) is rather
straining to see details even with the "super-peeper" glasses.

More resin figures (white to start) and painted with enamels.
Wagon and turtle were ready-done tiny-scenery-set accessories (Speedy
got some shell enhancement).
Added "gravel" and "grass" instead of trying to paint those.
