If you have had any doubts that a Reaper BONES miniature can be used for a competition piece this bit of paintwork by Victoria Lamb should dispel those doubts.
Here is the link to the appropriate post on her website. If you have never seen her work spend some time looking through her gallery and then buy some miniatures.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
