Reaper's Carnessa, the Terrible - 2077


First miniature painted for 2008! Actually I started this model and completed about 3/4 of the work throughout December and then put the finishing touches on it this first week of January.

I copied this paint scheme from an old miniature I did of a skeleton king called Golgath, Eradicator. This figure will match nicely as the queen.

Not too bad overall - still getting the paintstroke back as well as patience - I'm not as smooth and there really needs to be more layers building up from dark to highlights which you'll see is much better on the older model. Overall it's a good match and they'll look great on the gaming table together.

Unfortunately, the way this miniature is designed - the left side can't be scanned - so you get the front, right, and back sides.
