Reaper mini: 3204 Battleguard golem
Here's the Reaper battleguard golem. The crossbow is from a Reaper weapons pack. The stock has been cut off and the bottom of the crossbow filed down to fit snugly with the forearm. Other than that, this is the mini you get from Reaper- it's a very nice mini, and easy to paint.
If you don't mind a little assembly, this is a great starter mini for beginning painters. A quick note on that; for beginning painters, I would also recommend any figure from Copplestone Castings or any old Games Workshop figures (and I mean OLD school, nothing later than 1992), and Heresy minis. Heresy, however, requires a lot of assembly on most of its minis. Once assembled, Heresy' figures are great to paint.
