Reaper Bathalian Pirate

This is another figure from the lead mountain. It's Reaper No. 3135 Bathalian Pirate. To give you an idea of how long he was sitting in my lead mountain; I purchased this figure originally when I first learned that 4 edition D&D would have dragonborn - this was before the game had even come out. I was going to use this figure as an alternative dragonborn figure (as if there were any actual dragonborn sculpts out there at the time, anyway.)

This is an easy figure to paint, but requires a lot of patience. There are a lot of details on this figure -- a lot of stuff that can get missed. But nothing is hidden, hard to get to, or difficult to paint. You just have to keep at it, rotate the figure often to see what you missed, and resign yourself to opening and re-opening the same colors over and over again.
