Mini Ma’al: Update 1

I’ve gotten quite a bit of work done on this since my last post. First I took a Reaper Bones Hydra model (SKU: 77191) and the wings from the Reaper Bones version of Rauthuros (SKU: 77111).

Ellen Stone – Finished

Reaper Miniatures – Ellen Stone SKU: 80003 Picture could have been a little clearer, still working on getting the new phone to do what I want it to. I’m happy with the eyes and the chaps particularly. I attempted to do distressed leather for the first time on the chaps, pretty good for a firstContinue reading “Ellen Stone – Finished”

Ellen Stone (WIP)

This is a very fun model. I will be using her as a new player character mini. I am very nearly done now though. Here’s a few pictures of the process. I did learn some new things on this one, mainly how to paint distressed leather for her chaps. I think for a first timeContinue reading “Ellen Stone (WIP)”
