This weekend I picked up the new Adepta Sororitas box and quickly glued together a battle sister.
As quickly as possible at least - these models are extremely fiddly when you've gotten used to primaris scale marines...
Here's the test model. She's painted using a similar technique as the marine in my last post, and almsot exclusively using contrast paints.
Like the marine the model is undercoated with Zandri Dust spray, and then given a semi zenithal spray of Wraithbone. This provides a nice creamy base colour to work from. Then the armour and cloak/habit is sponged with dark brown to provide weathering. The armour is drybrushed with pure white and then given a generous coat of Apothecary white mixed with Skellie horde (plus some medium to dilute it). The deepest recesses are painted Basilicanum grey to provide contrast after which the edges are highlighted with white.
The habit is painted with several coats of Cygor brown and shaded with diluted Wildwood, which provides a warm, earthen, leathery colour.
Pretty happy with the result! Haven't come up with a name or iconography for her Order Minoris yet. It'll probably be something angelic and biblical to continue the theme I started with the Metatron chapter.
More to come as GW was kind enough to send me a box of the jaw dropping Triumph of Saint Katherine. I'll be using the models from the kit as separate characters, as I lack the patience for larger dioramas...
