A Cloud of Ravens

I went for some grocery shopping today and stopped by the comic shop again. This time i got another miniature to paint. Another distraction lol!

This one caught my eye because of his name, Arkham. I am quite the fan of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos. He's probably got nothing at all to do with Lovecraft but it is a really cool mini.

Arkham here is from the Anima Tactics range, and he is from the Black Sun faction. He's sculpted brilliantly by Juan Navarro Perez. I have not played Anima Tactics before, but the rules look interesting! And its also a game requiring just a few minis.

I managed to get Shadow Grey paint today and used it to color his robes. I really like the ravens perching on his arms and shoulders. I tried to follow the scheme as close of possible to the original image of Arkham. I left the eyes blank, as if he was in the grip of a spell, probably summoning more of his bird friends hehe!

Back view. I also added the symbols to his cloak.

The weekend approaches once again. Hope everyone had a good week :)
