I finally finished the base for Reva. I used one of the Wyrdscape Graveyard bases by Wyrd Games. Despite having a door that leads to nowhere, the base is well sculpted with excellent textures to play with. I used a contrast of browns and greens to make it pop while bringing the palette together.

**Update – Finished the flesh – next up the beard
**Update – Head finished – next up pants and skirt

This kit was, by far, the biggest pain-in-the-ass build I’ve ever had. That said, its a damn cool model. I tried to match the box art and it gave me more practice on my OSL and blending.
I ran him (unpainted) in a tournament last week and I really liked him into the OURS strategy. Bone Pile is painted and ready for the table.
