Reaper Miniature's Bertrand, Monk - 2829


Another miniature going to a good home from my bi-weekly Dungeons and Dragons game.  This one is a monk requested by one of the players in the group.  Again, another metal miniature - I liked all the detail stuff - the backpack, sleeping pad, cup, rope, etc.  However I was disappointed in this particular casting with the face - it didn't appear to be quite right nor as crisp as the display image on Reaper's website.

I went for the earthly tones here - so browns with dark green.  I used shadow grey which is a blue/grey for the rope, undergarments, sleeping pad to give it some muted color.

Also, this was sculpted by an artist I don't know - Sylvain Quirion - nor have I seen his/her work prior from Reaper or any other miniature company.
