How yow all doin'??
Progress continues with my sisters of battle project with the main development being my decision to abandon the casting of pieces. I have tried many many times now to get this to work and it just doesn't! At least it doesn't with the equipment I have access too. Sadly I don't have the money for a vacuum chamber etc...in the end it's just as quick to sculpt each and every one! This isn't a bad thing either as it means I can devote individual attention to each sister and get a truly unique army...I just need to work on my own individual imagination now :p
Anyway, as the nuns with guns title would suggest, I have armed a couple of my sisters with weapons I think look really cool! All come from the Forgeworld Spacemarine Legions range, which seem to be smaller than their plastic alternatives, hence ideal for sisters. Take a look and let me know what you think...
Sister with 'Umbra' pattern bolter:
I'm planning on using the sanctuary range of bases from dragonforge for this army. Therefore, I've made my own base for this squad that won't look too out of place when I get the shipment.
I'm happy with the proportions and I'm especially chuffed with the robe sleeves. They are a great way of creating movement and direction, which suggests that she's sweeping her bolter around to engage a new target.
Seriously cool!! I think I'll create a more appropriate backpack for her but I absolutely love the look of this heavy flamer! Just ever so slightly large but hey, she's in power armour!
