The second of the Big Birds from CoolMiniorNot rises from its perch!
This one is even a little trickier than the owl on the markings, but a fun alternative to a typical eagle, which is why I did it this way.
I have a few "Birds of Prey" reference books, and the Osprey was featured prominently. It also had several different species of eagles, many of which had similar markings to this guy (some varieties of African Eagles).
Yes, more repetition and tedium painting all the patterns, but it was time well spent :-)
Here he is with his buddy! The Griffon pictures are coming tomorrow!!
