My receipient was Demi. :D

Now it was hard and easy at the same time to find something for him. I wanted to paint something that would fit in with the rest of his miniatures, yet be original. I had a Skaven Plague Priest lying around that I had converted for a GD and immediatly settled on what I'd do for him! 8)

Here are my crappy pics that Imho don't do the model justice. A lot of depth and highlights don't appear and especially the sword look cool which you can't see.

However they'll do and Demi will hopefully take better pics!

Demi's Skaven Plague Priest:

He had a great idea to include two nice touches in this model: the big chest is the CHEST OF COLORS, while the small box is the BOX OF BRUSHES :D

I was lucky enough to get her much earlier, when Nameless visited us during his trip to Golden Demon :)

Thanks a lot, man! I appreciate it and it means a lot to me!

As far as I know he liked her, so the goal was achieved. But why shouldn't a man like such a girl? :twisted:

Not a stellar job (we've got other painters here for better paintjobs, after all), but I liked the color scheme enough to make parting with her difficult :cry:
Maybe I will paint another one for my own collection one day?

Not a paintjob to go "wow" about, but the thing I am proud about is that I actually managed to paint ANYTHING... which is a very rare accomplishment for me these days :)

No applause needed, just wanted to share :)

Ah, there will probably be no better pics (especially of the yummy other side...) as I had to hurry to meet the deadline and had no time to take good pics :(

But maybe Skrit manages to take some decent photos?

The postman first didn't want to give it to me, because Demi wrote Tomaz Peckerlord Thijs on the package :D

what can I say? I'm very glad the exchange is almost 100% successful, I'm even more happy I wasn't the one who didn't get the model :razz: :wink:
anyway I like a lot paintjob Skrit did on the plague priest - it looks much better in my display cablot than on pictures shown :) if I manage to find my camera I'll try to take new photos (although I'll probably have to invest in new equipment after x-mas madness :? )

btw, Skrit wrote: "Demi morgana Piotr Mikians" and I had no problem with getting my model from the postman :razz:

I like the miniature - very rusty. Pretty good job on the base too.
Yeah, right. PP dominated the exchange :lol:

Thanks Tanya, I love it :rose: haven't seen a better paintjob from you, I do appreciate it. If you have better pics, please post them.
Info for those not familiar with Reaper range - this is limited mini available only on one of ReaperCons (2006? 2007?).
