His sentiment for strange and unpopular miniatures is second only to Mahon’s. This is reflected by the collection of miniatures in his gallery. Very active participant of the hobby events and competitions, and author of the Chest of Colors Miniature Exchange!
I’ve recently painted a mini for Ana. Why I have done it is a totally different story, which we – the CofC folks – will tell you later. What matters now is that I have chosen this Reaper miniature to depict fantasy version of her husband.
It’s a Clay Golem that I gave a name – Cassius (hint, hint). So here it is – Cassius, Clay Golem.
It also received an alternate name, as Ana’s husband is Mahon (“Mahogany” in English) – Hulk “MMAhon” (ma)Hogan!
By the way, painting for one of the best and most known miniatures painters in the world can be surprisingly stressful, even if it is just a gift.
Miniature Exchanges are always fun events. If you don’t know what they are, I’ll give you a short version of the rules – you paint a miniature as a surprise gift for someone and someone (not necessarily the same person) paints a mini for you. We had few Miniature Exchanges at the Chest of Colors forums few years ago and as I have said – they were fun!
I have recently decided to remind myself how fun Miniature Exchanges are and joined one held at the Reaper Miniatures forum. They had some additional rules there. One has to pick a Reaper mini to paint (obviously) and participants are allowed to make some requests for people painting for them (like “I don’t accept nude models” or “I’d love something for my dwarf army”).
My recipient, Robin from Canada, wished for a non-human model with some orange shade incorporated in a paintjob. After going through my collection of Reaper minis I picked a stone golem from the Bones range (might need to write more about Bones products someday) and … well … I painted it. So, here it is, the stone golem, guardian of some ancient temple.
As promised earlier, I’m slowly rebuilding my galleries. The biggest part of what I’ve painted comes from Reaper Miniatures, so here it is… all pics of Reaper minis painted by me that I was able to find with help of Mahoń.
From the very first Reaper mini painted back in 2006…
… to the most recent paintjobs, finished in December 2016.
Oh, and the link to the whole Reaper Miniatures galery:
