Reaper's Skeleton 2 Handed - 2129

I met with bunch of mini-painters from around the northern and central Virginia at Huzzah Hobbies in Ashburn, VA (a quick thanks and shout out to the owner and team at Huzzah Hobbies - its a great wargaming hobby shop and they provided a good size area for us to get together and paint). I brought along a handful of finished miniatures from the past year as well as a couple of projects I'm working on including a special limited cast Reaper I'm painting for a friend. Besides that, I brought a couple of Reaper skeletons based and black coated ready to go. I figured that a skeleton was something easy to paint so that I could talk and interact with everyone. I did get a good percentage of the skeleton completed there and finished him up at home.
