Here are some more Sisters of Battle that I have worked on recently. Although still not a huge fan of the range, I have quite enjoyed painting these ones. The black, red and gold is effective, and I am pleased with how they have turned out.
As these are for an army, I have stuck to the same Astrogranite base with simple tufts.
Painted to go with the custodian, these miniatures were loads of fun to work on. I enjoyed doing the gold on the custodian, and getting to do so again on these was great. I also painted the jewels blue on these to match him, and the bases are also done in the same astrogranite grey texture paint with similar little tufts added for effect.
I went for a more magenta on the cloak rather than red, so they do look a bit different from the custodians as well.
All in all, I am very pleased with how they have turned out.
Part of a commission for Andy at Simply Warhammer, was these Sisters of Battle Paragon suits.
I am not really a fan on the range personally, but I do like the black, red and gold aesthetic. These were done to a Tier 1 level, and I surprised myself with how much I actually liked painting these.
They were not too taxing to build either, which was nice. I tried to keep the bases pretty simple by only adding a bit of static grass to some texture paint. I went for grey as it is neutral against the vibrant red.
This guy was a prize for a recent give away from Simply Warhammer. The winner of this character give away picked the Biologus. He was a delight to paint. I loved the contrast between traditional Death Guard grunge and brightly coloured jars. The puddles on the base made a difference, and I think that adding flowers just make the colours stand out all the more.
All in all, I am super pleased with how he had turned out and I know the winner is too. I hope to paint more Death Guard in the future – they’re just loads of fun!
So, as I am entering Little Stampy into Golden Demon now – more on him later, I need to do something pretty funky with his base. I know the titan is going to be stamping on a tank, which is awesome, but what is the rest of the base going to look like?
I used the opportunity to pick up a few different basing materials in order to have a play around with them. Most of them were water effects bits, so I spend a while creating rivers and waves, and seeing which were the most effective. I have put a description under each picture so you can really see what I used.
I am pleased with the effects I have created with these bases. I am not sure yet if I am going to use them on the Golden Demon entry, but either way, it was fun to mess about and just create without the pressure of needing to get things finished!
Recently, I was asked if I would paint prizes for a give away over on Simply Warhammer. I was only too happy to agree and last week, the prize arrived. The winner wanted some MK VI marines painted as Crimson Fists, and today I finished them.
They were fun, I love dark blue and red so these were a real pleasure to work on! Here they are:
This week, I have mostly been working on the next set of Raven Guard! I enjoy painting these gusts, and feel they turned out really well. I particularly like how the claws turned out and the crazy shadow Captain – who I definitely do not want to meet either on or off the battlefield!!
