It's been far, far too long since I sat down and painted a mini. Too many other life priorities. But anyways...
So, I painted a Sisters of Battle terminator, and I decided I wanted her as a mini. Games Workshop does not sell SoB terminators. And so began my long conversion process, spending far too much money on bits for a model that probably can't be ever fielded.
A ton of plasticard cementing, ProCreate sculpting, and general hackery later, I came out with this. Proportions are somewhat wonky, but I think they're beyond my capability to fix short of sculpting everything from scratch. Plus GW's proportions have always been wonky, especially for terminators.
A coat of primer and I'm feeling better about this whole project already.
I got the (old) Necron "Start Collecting!" box and finally got everything put together. Time to start painting...
(There is actually some assembly left to do, but I'm waiting for some magnets. Those are a few weeks out still but I figured I'd get most of the painting done in the meantime and just touch up whatever bits need touched up.)
Went to an intense NNM metal class with Banshee last weekend.
we started out with either this guy or a pace marine.
I still haven't ever painted space marine.
It was a lot of color theory, breaking figures down into simple shapes and knowing the intensity of various paints and inks.
Im was not sold enough on the green to carry it over onto the shield, so I just left that as base NMM
We also painted a 75mm knight from noctura, but I didin't get anywhere near finishing that one, not sure I ever will....
So here is one of the more interesting figures I've seen in a while, and a bit unusual. This is from the Hackmaster series that Ral Partha acquired and currently offers, sculpted by Bob Olley. She is a female dwarf cleric, and as was mentioned somewhere way back when in the Lord of the Rings if I recall originally, she is a bearded female dwarf. Now I'm not going to pretend that she is a beauty to behold, but I think she's an extremely cool little lady, who would probably shove that hammer up into where she sun no longer shines.
I probably would have finished her sooner, but I always run into that issue of what colors to use. This started from the color of her beard all the way to virtually the end when I had to decide on a color for her mace haft. Do you give her "feminine" colors or do you just make her kind of generally grungy browns, blacks and greys? So I ended up going with colors, and couldn't resist throwing some pink in there.
Not a new figure, sculpted I'm guessing around 2003. As I detached her from her temporary base and looked at the bottom, there wasn't a year on her, but I think most of t he Hackmaster pieces were done in the early 2000's.
So anyways, enjoy!
