I recently got me hands on another fine miniature by Reaper. Its called Santa Claus by Bob Ridolfi. I bought it immediately as i always loved Christmas and the sort of magical feeling it gives. I plan on displaying this mini prominently on me desk, maybe even the table at my workplace. This will remind me of the year end holidays and the spirit of Christmas ;)
Pics of mini below.
No good miniature goes un40K-rised by me heheheh!! So i made up some stats for thats right.... Santa Claus in 40K!

WIP Pics of Storm Raven...again
I finally worked up the courage to at least put some paint on the flying machine. Started with basecoat of Mechrite Red+Chaos Black for the chassis. 2 Coats applied.
Painted on Scab Red after that. I'm still learning how to paint vehicles as the surfaces are too big and chances for paint to pool in increased dramatically. Will try my best to keep at it ;)
Above pic is with 2 coats of Scab Red on the raised areas.
Thats all for today folks :)
