This Reaper figure, 02785 in the Dark Heaven Series and sculpted by Jason Wiebe, is another one from deep in the Tin Mountain. It had a miscast hand, and that was too big a hurdle for a long time.
Anyway, I made a mediocre attempt at sculpting, and hid the resulting mess behind a shield (from Otherworld). It actually works rather well, the figure gets a gladiator look that I quite like.
I’m not very happy with the result as he looks a bit too yellow, I should a chosen a more sand-coloured tone for his fur. Anyway, it is much better than an unpainted figure in the Mountain…
