Reaper's Templar Knight - 2513


The Templar Knight I picked up after participating in a Living Greyhawk RPGA event. He's my Paladin. The painting of this figure has a couple of interesting notes. First, I completed this figure in a six hour span one evening - which by my standards is fast. My goal was to be quick (relatively speaking), like the below orcs, but at the same time to create a high quality paintjob that gets attention. Additionally, this was the first time I went to a white highlight on my primary color (the blue robes). I've always hesitated before and this was a tough barrier for me to get through. I really like the results, but I can see needs for further improvement.
