Father and Daughter Paint Session

Presenting Reaper's 2679 Mushroom Men...

Just like with the hounds, Elizabeth declared she wanted to paint something. So I found the 2 item Mushroom Men pack from Reaper Miniatures. Instead of doing both figures like the hounds, she did the little figure and asked me to do the bigger figure. The paint scheme was her idea!

Another Jason Wiebe sculpted miniature figure - I do like his stuff.

I'll post up pictures of the larger of the two tomorrow when I get a bit more time as well as the step by step directions. So stop by again a little later tomorrow night.

Reaper's Skel W/2 Hand Swds Army Pack - 5009

Saturday night I had some time and ambition to put together the remainder of the 2 handed skeleton army pack. This was based on Reaper's skeleton 2129 and the pack contained 5 models. According to Reaper Miniature's website they no longer produce an army pack under the 5009 model number and I couldn't find this particular model in any other current army pack sold by Reaper today. What's interesting is that Reaper's website credits Ed Pugh as the sculpture for the single 2129 model but the tag on blister pack says by J. Allen.

As a unit, they came out rather well. They're all the same figure, I twisted the head a bit and mounted the model in the base differently for each one to give them some semblance of uniqueness - yet a unified whole.

The paint scheme obviously was the same as the first posted and therefore I won't post the instructions again - see Reaper Miniatures Skeleton 2129 post for step by step instructions.
