Nemesis Greek Goddess is an exquisite mini from Morland Studios.  Being a fan of Greek mythology I was very happy to do this video.   There’s something about the Morland miniatures that sets them a part and makes them different.  I can’t quite put the right words on what they capture but they grab it very well.



I look forward to painting Nemesis up.  I just hope my brush strokes are kind to to her.
