So many years ago, for those of you who qualify as whippersnappers, we had weekly one day contests on the blog called Pop Quizzes. Basically a theme would be posted Saturday mornings and you had roughly 24 hours to come up with a piece that fit the theme. They were a lot of fun, and NO...they are not coming back
So I decided to resurrect one of my favourite PQs from the past.
Your challenge this week is to take the following figure from Companions / Humanoids...
...and using your machining skills. turn it into a fully realized character. This was my entry for the Pop Quiz...
The winner this week will receive my version of their character rendered in glorious HM3. I probably will not use the companion as a base. This is not the hill I want to die on...lol

If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Do you know what I miss from the old days? Caption Contest Remember those?
Japanese history recounts tradition of honorable death by suicide or Seppuku (Jigai for Japanese women). If a samurai was about to fall it was considered honorable for them to commit suicide, with their family following suit before they were able to be slain by the enemy. Often times the women would bound their legs together so they could not be defiled. This spirit is inspired by Japanese imagery/folklore. She forever haunts the land enticing men who are entranced by the beautiful face hiding in her black abyss so that she can forever exact revenge for not being able to bind herself from defilement and commit Jigai before falling to the enemy that took her village.
The Red Wizard….
Master of the dark arts, this immortal sorcerer conjures the darkest of creatures, and most vile of demons from the Dark Abyss.
