I converted two Reaper Miniatures (Achiah, Male Angel, and T`Quan, Skoli Warrior), both by the very talented Sandra Garrity:

Here's how the model looks so far, after 5 hours of painting (click to view larger):

(I'll post updates here as I go, but you can find more detail in my Blog).

Thanks for looking!

Nice conversion, mama-san! Wondering if you can add some more dimension to those flat looking wings?... lookin' planked! Also, would angels have belly buttons... I'm just askin'?

Loving the model.

mudhead, I haven't painted the wings yet! Hahaha! And that's a good point about the belly button. I never thought of that! That's the way it's sculpted, though, so I'll just go with it.

Anyway, I didn't really like his face, so I took y hobby knife to it for a little "cosmetic surgery", cleaned it up with brush-on primer, and some more paint, and voila!

Yay! I was wondering when we'd see your next update, but it was worth the wait! The trailing cloak looks great, and I think your color selection has been spot-on.

Nicely done thus far! Love the red of the breastplate.

I've got waaay too many angels sitting in my queue right now...all those feathers! Your wings are looking lovely, though. Nice and simple backdrop for those reds and blues.

He look very nice, all the colors are very smooth, that gives him a soft feel. Perfect for an angel character.
Is there a red stain under his right arm, on the white epaulet?

Hmm..yes, I think you're right. I'll have to fix that, thanks!

Yaay, your back to it! He's looking great, Joy. I love the way the wings are turning out. The red is fantastic and very smooth.

I do have one nit for you: I think you could use an intermediary glaze or two in the blue sash, especially in the folds on his back and in front over the arm; it appears a bit abrupt in a few areas.

Take care,

Andy

Yeah, I've been struggling with those areas. They aren't cooperating with my usual blending techniques. I'll keep at it, though, and thanks for the critiques!
