Duelling gamers: Winged reinforcements have arrived or the Eagles are coming

This week has witnessed an event that was long in coming, the first great eagle is finally completed.
The Eagle shared the same problem as my spell singer, which was a major delay caused by the colour scheme I was unhappy with, But thankfully that is now resolved. I treated the great eagle as two different figures to be painted, the first was the base with an added Citadel tree from the woods kit, this provided the effect of the eagle swooping and diving through the forest canopy after her prey, which with this pose was something that i struggled with in the past weeks to provide that feel to the model.

The other is the eagle herself, and what a beauty she is.
