Origen Arts, Faun Woman & Narok – Short Review
Today my package from Origen Arts arrive containing some wonderful resin pieces.
(Sorry about the crappy photos, had to use my cellphone)
Their Faun Woman is a bust roughly 30-35mm tall, 1/16 scale according their website and it consists of only three pieces, the body and two horns.
The artwork they show is also quite nice and a style that I personally find very pleasing.
I first came in contact with this miniature over at Putty & Paint and fell in love with it. I’ve always been a big fan of surrealism and horror and this one is really a good mix of both.
It’s definitely that reminds me of Clive Barker’s writing mixed with a good amount of Guillermo del Toro’s creature design and general style. And of course both those are highly influenced by Lovecraft and this fit in with his ideas as well.
Details and Casting
The sculpting is very good and from what I’ve read online, that’s what you should expect by this company. It’s at a very high quality level.
I’ve only gone over the miniatures quickly but there’s not much work needed to clean then up. A small mold line and no flash from what I could see.
One thing that I was happy to see was that they have a great way of mounting Narok on the base he comes with. I was kinda worried considering the lack of normal feet that you can use to pin him with. Instead they have integrated his right leg and a piece of the brick wall that’s on the base. I can see that some people might not like this approach and want to use their own base but I really like this base so I’m going to use it.
