asuryan & pegasus ruined statue

This ruined statue features a likeness of the Eldar god Asuryan and his "winged steed", which would be referred to as a Pegasus in human mythology. This mythical creature provided the name for my scratchbuilt superheavy vehicle. This statue was originally intended to form part of the scenic flying base for the Pegasus superheavy grav tank; instead I decided to give it a larger base and create a standalone piece of scenery.

date: 2015-present (work-in-progress)
components: 3x 25mm Warhammer Fantasy square bases, 1x High Elf Flamespyre Phoenix saddle, 1x metal Empire Pegasus, 2x plastic Bretonnian Pegasus Knight wings, 1x Wraithguard warp vane, 1x metal Lord of the Rings High Elf shield, 1x Dark Elf Cold One Knight lance arm, 1x Dark Elf Cold One Knight shield arm, 1x metal Shining Spear legs, 1x Dire Avenger Exarch torso, 1x Dire Avenger Exarch head, plasticard, Green Stuff, brass rod, 40mm round base
