SISTERS ARE DOING IT FOR THEMSELVES

Like everyone and their uncle, I'm very much anticipating the upcoming release of the new Sisters of Battle. I recall how much of an impact they did when first released back in the late 90's, and this new range promises to be as amazing and revolutionary as Jes's original pewter models.

So, to warm up I painted the Sister Superior released earlier this year.

The colour scheme turned out great - she's mostly painted with contrast colours and Apothecary white really is one of the most useful paints in the range. Unfortunately the head tilted slightly when the super glue set, so the final model has a slightly different angle than originally intended. You can see clearly on the test-fit shot how much difference a few degrees does - the model has a completely different vibe. I can't fix it without breaking the model so I'll just have to live with it, but honestly it bugs the hell out of me...

Oh well. Plenty more sisters to come!

  1. I like the pose of the face. Just like your palette choice and the muted tones. Awesome.

  2. I don't know, the angle makes her look more inquisitive of the up-coming target of her next bolter shot to me. :)

    Love the colours mate. That Contrast white seems great.
