MCP – Kraven & Lizard Painting Guide

Welcome to my latest painting guide! Kraven the Hunter and Lizard are up this week, with another glorious set of models.


I need your support. Because my guides takes time and supplies to do, any support you can offer would mean the world to me. A supportive message in the comments is enough, but if you have the means why not send me a gift on Ko-Fi or PayPal. Thank you!
