Here is the finished Reaper 02489: Black Legionnaire that I was sent. I painted the surcoat like the hockey jersey the recipient is wearing in his Facebook photo.
I’ll be mailing this out as soon as I get a chance to run to the post office.
P.S. Also, this is my quick and dirty photo booth. I should probably get on the final version since this doesn’t quite do the job.
A member of the Reaper Miniatures’ Facebook group offered up seven miniatures in payment for painting one miniature for him. This was a general offer and he had several he wanted painted and quite a few to give away.
I looked at the pictures of what he was offering and what he wanted painted. Nothing in particular jumped out at me. I told him to pick my seven and his one at random and I’d gladly paint it for him. Here is what I ended up with:
There are a few Reaper and a few Ral Partha miniatures in there. The oldest date stamp I could read was 1988. Talk about some old school miniatures!
So, this could be my first commission. Does it really count?
