I got this model way back when in the original Reaper Bones Kickstarter. He’s been on the shelf, assembled, biding his time for several years. I decided to use him as a test model for the Dust Mythos Cthulhu monsters. But then I got impatient and painted them all at the same time.
This model is seriously huge, and mostly a solid, heavy, chunk of PVC. So far he doesn’t have any game purposes, but he does like to supervise my hobby desk.
Ruth, my four-year-old daughter, has been very interested in my hobby stuff. She asks to see what I’m working on. She especially liked the egg that came the Wyrd Easter order. So I asked her if she’d like to paint it. Of course, she said yes.
She helped me wash the model, and I cleaned up the seam lines and glued it to the base. She primed it with the airbrush (with some help), and eventually we found a time to actually paint it.
I worked on a different model, but Ruth was much faster. She soon asked for another. Luckily I had some random Reaper stuff primed, so gave her a second. This one she said was sitting on the sun. My wife suggested glitter for the basing material.
