54mm Waiteri tribe: Fire maker

So this fellow isn't necessarily a fire maker as much as he is the fire keeper. I only call him firemaker because that is one of the character types available in the game "Tusk," one of the reasons I made these figures in the first place.

This is actually the second fire lantern I've made (Here is my first attempt at 28mm size.) This one is a little larger than I wanted, but this firemaker has some big muscles, so he can handle it.

One of the new figures I ordered is a copy of this one. The second copy of this figure will get a spear instead of a fire lantern, as well as some travel gear -- maybe a pouch, bedroll or a bundle of kindling -- and he'll be sent off with the scouts.

Minor note: Today I found some oval-shaped pieces of MDF that are the perfect size to be bases for my mammoth(s?) I almost have all the materials I need for that project.
