Of the two I got, the first I've finished is the Daemon Huntress. It was a little odd working at a different scale like this, but I've painted enough monsters and Dreads and such that it wasn't a huge shift. Honestly, I was kind of disappointed by the sculpt. Some of it, I was able to fix (nipple armour is no better a look for her than for George Clooney), but other stuff, like the ridiculous high heels, I just couldn't manage the work necessary on such a large metal Model. And then some of it is just plain sloppy work. A lot of the skulls and purity seals and such are really poorly done compared to those on many 28mm metal Models I have from the same era, or even substantially earlier.
All that said, tho, I'm pretty happy with how she turned out in the end. It was definitely cool to get to work on one of these Models that I've wanted for so long, and to get a bit of variety from working in a different scale.
|The layering on the blended parts didn't come out as well as I'd wanted. With so much more space to cover on that blade and horn, my usual methods left each colour having too big of a chunk.|
|It took a lot of google image searching to figure out what's in her backpack there. It's a tiny little reliquary-type thing, but with a statue of an armed and armoured warrior instead of just a little piece of a saint.|
Azazel's January Challenge, but I'm going to count her anyhow, since the amount of work involved and her stature are on par with the sorts of things that would qualify as centerpiece Models. I've been plugging away at some more of Rogue Trader and the start of Blackstone Fortress as well, along with some Terrain for variety, so hopefully I'll be able to get some of the finished, photographed, written up, and posted soon. Until then, y'all have a good one, y'hear!
