It was the night before Halloween…..
…and I decided was the best time to speed paint a miniature I bought from Reaper Miniatures.
I looked through the catalog of miniatures they had with something to do with Halloween and this one screamed out to me.
So I did lil cleaning on the figure. (I had been away from painting figures so long that I just wanted to get this figure done – I don’t recommend doing this)
I generally think about the figure long before I paint it. I looked at couple of samples like this one and decided against it.

I wanted something earthy and well…. more dead-y.
I gave the figures a uniform grey undercoat to prepare.
Then a top down spray of Army Painter’s Matt White
The head was done with Reaper’s Pumpkin Orange (yes, they actually have a color called that). I used Army Painter’s Demonic Yellow to work the highlights.
Worked a bit of the detailing
The cloak was done using Vallejo Reflective Green. I also used Vallejo Deep Ocean to Shade.
I was very tempted to do a wood like casket lid but went for a more darker motif with the white picking out the details
The armor was just black grey and white (All Army Painter). I then concentrated on getting a general feel of the model.
The base was decorated using a resin piece I had in a bits box.
This whole project took 2 hours.
