An Avatar of war necromancer.
This paticular Avatar of War sculpt was a big disappointment :( Earlier I have painted the dwarf slayer and the gobbo, both great sculpt with lots of fine details. This necromancer looks almost like one of the old 'flats'(!). If I hadn't replaced his scythe with the astronomers globe he would have been totally 2d. All of his equipment (skulls, bags etc.) are nothing near crispy and sharp - the casting made me think of the home-casted miniature I did with Prince August moulds when I was a kid (ouch, am I to harsh now?)... no sharp edges there either.
I will not recommend this miniature to anybody. That said, I think It got better once painted, if I am to say it myself :)
