I bought this angel quite a few years ago, in 2012 to be exact. Now, three years later I have finally managed to paint it! It’s not a model intended for gaming, but actually a present for my cousin who collect angel figurines. She have been ill for a while so I wanted to paint her an angel as a way of showing that I think of her even if we don’t talk often.

Mmmm... glossy.

Mmmm… glossy.

The model is a Reaper Dark Heaven “Angel of Mercy” sculpted by Sandra Garrity. I can’t say I enjoyed painting it much, and the face is a little chunky and weird. The gloss varnish didn’t do the paintjob any favours either… Regardless, I’m happy to have it done as it hopefully will be a treasured addition to my cousin’s collection and it feels good to have that monkey off my back. I no longer have any obligations to finish models for a third party, it’s just me and my lead mountain now!

Hopefully, I’ll have time to clean up a few more stragglers from old projects. Like the last few guys for my Doom Forgers Dungeonbowl team… or the guys from the Golden Horns of Bashalot… or maybe I can finish a few more minis for Stillburg. But first, I must do the last six of the Raizze.
