Fortnight Theme Bonus Round 2: January 5 - Villains

Well, my original plan was to submit some Mahdists for the Villain Theme. Then again, my plan was also to finish up the Safari into Danger! for the Non-Combatants round, and yet they still need finishing and submitting.

Anyway, I was scrambling for a submission Thursday/Friday, and I chanced on the pack of Reaper lion and lionesses I picked up a year and change ago:

When searching for a villain idea, I decided upon Scar, from The Lion King. Looking at the mini, you can see the rocks sculpted on the base, suitable for many of the positions Scar would take, up on high ledges. A quick bit of Googling gave me the necessary colorations:
 And here's the result:

I went with a more generic coloring for the lioness. I painted a lighter skin tone, the same as Scar's paws and muzzle. 

There was a small bit of flash on the lioness' muzzle that I didn't catch until she was almost completely painted. I tried making it into a scar, with some pink and white paint, but I'm not sure how well that turned out. You can see it best in the side by side.
Well, that's the first official entry in, for a net 60 points (5 each for the figures, and 50 for the Villain theme). Onward!
