Reaper 02917: Bird Man

The Reaper Bird Man by Geoff Valley, is an excellent mini to use for the Aarakocra. The 2E Monstrous Compendium entry describes the wings of the monster as being more like a bat, but I've always seen them as being feathered, so this is the miniature I use for them.

Again, one of the things that I love about Reaper is that the parts fit together so snugly. You don't need any filler on the wing that you glue to the body. It fits so snugly that you almost can't see the seam.

They are a really nice sculpt, and the metal is just pliable enough that you can actually get the wings in a variety of positions without breaking them. I've got four of them, and wouldn't mind a few more for the flock.
