I painted up Aquarius and Virgo as statues for my Dragons Don't Share Ruins. My WIP is here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/71651-dragons-dont-share-2/
I am still working on the overall but I was happy with how my "statues" turned out so wanted to share them in a Show Off!
I can't get over how cute these two little minis are. I had no idea they were so cute. I will be buying more to paint as "normal" but I think they make excellent statues as well!

Your Highness, I hope that my news will bring you great joy and satisfaction, the Roman Empire is about to face a new Era!
As requested we’ve been sailing for months in pursuit of a humanoid race that would suit the requirements to Join the worldwide Football league, along with bringing greatness to our Empire.
I was very lucky to be amongst the few ships which discovered an Uknown and Unexplored Island not present on our naval cartography.
It was during the first explorations of this new territory that we found it’s inhabitants: they are a Fierce tribal culture, which proven to have a primordial sense of civilization since they are divided in two castes.
The first ones I nicknamed “Ogres” are the dominant species on the Island, and for a very clear reason: they are Huge, Tough and very Violent. It was almost impossible even for our armoured Pretorian Guard unit to subdue them when not alone at night time. They are naturally gifted for Sport games, especially Football since they know how to pack a punch in the enemy’s face and how to take a tackle without much damage. On the other side they showed a tendency to possess a quite restricted mindset, even some degree of stupidity and confusion at times, but we’ve found a solution to that:
The second caste, the “Snotlings”. We gave them this name because of their tiny dimension and wicked wits in comparison to the Ogres. Thanks to them we were able to guide the Big ones more easily, since it seems that these smaller creatures are used like slaves,guides and training dummies by them. Unexpectedly they demonstrated to possess also other more useful skills: They are faster than Ogres and due to their small stature they can easily dodge the enemies and prolong their short lifespawn on the field. Furthermore Ogres seems to love throwing them and use their natural aereodynamics aid due to the shape of their nose.
We’ve captured 9 of them, but we’ll find some more just in case.
Once properly trained in the ways and rules of our Sport, I’m sure they’ll crush everything on their path. There is no such enemy team that can withstand the Mightyness of our S.P.Q.R.
Medusa is easily among the most beautiful sculpts I've ever painted. My hat is off to Sebastian Archer, he really outdid himself with this one.
After I posted the first one, another client asked me to paint her up for him. I mostly followed my original color scheme, except this time I used true metallics in place of the non-metallic metals I used the first time around.
I'll need to paint one up for myself sometime. She really just screams to be in a competition.
I've posted her to coolmini for anyone who cares to vote.
The translucent fabrics make me think I ought to go with links for her:
