Mini: Sarcophagus

Manufacturer: Reaper Bones Series

Painted: 19th Dec – 21st Dec 2013

I am reasonably happy with the way this model turned out. It was my first attempt at marble and I think I need some work on it. The white lines need to be finer and dabbing I did under the washes needs to be stronger - after all those washes you cant see it and I think that takes away from it. Other than that I should have highlighted the cloth in the coffin/sarcophagus. 

However, I don't feel it is a bad paint job and I think it will work as a piece of dungeon decor. I want to do some more marble effects to practice! I really loved what Laura did with her marble - check out hers and others of Miniature Monday here.

Here is the tutorial I watched for marbling:
