I don't get many chances to paint or game anymore - but after months of getting a minute here and there, I have something to show!

The humble beginnings of my Sisters of Sigmar warband!



I apologize for my weak Photo-fu. And for the size of the images - seeing them that big just makes me cringe.

C&C welcome!

Thanks!

Hey Cygnus!

Thanks for uploading! Don't worry about the size, as long as it fits my screen and I don't need to scroll HORIZONTALLY I have no problems with pics.

On topic:

I like the mini-conversion that you made on the first sister on the top left. Removing the Hammer and adding a flail makes the dynamism of the mini much more believable. Good job!

The paintjob is solid tabletop quality. So well done here as well.

A little suggestion on the metal parts:

1) I suggest you brush them with tin bitz and then lightly with boltgun metal (or any other metal) next time. That way the metal gets some "depth".

or

2) You leave them like this and apply a generous wash of "Devlan Mud". That usually looks pretty good (allow at least 5 - 10 mins to dry!)

COOL STUFF! I LOVE the expression on the Matriarch's face; the woman looks like she disapproves of EVERYTHING in general [or is a lemon sucker Suspect ]. Any paint job that looks as good as yours when blown up to this size IS an excellent piece of work. I like the way your gold came out; very nice level of depth & a nice rich coloration. WELL DONE! Keep'em coming! thumbsup

Thank you for the comments!

@ Tom - Yeah, you're right, the metals do look pretty flat so I'll address that when I get a chance.

@ MyLittlePwny - Thanks! It's just the best possible scheme for sisters, that's all. Laughing

I'm working on my Augur - if all goes well, she'll be up in a bit!

Don Juan; in his memoirs, the famous lover described the Nuns of Venice as the finest of courtisans. Suspect

Yeah, the bases are greenstuff - and very easy to do, too! I don't know if I'd base a Warhammer army this way, but for 10-15 minis, it's simple and doesn't take too much time.

A small update!

My Augur:



A bit of a rush-job on this one. I'm not happy with the robes at the moment and had trouble figuring out exactly what was going on with all the crazy folds and such.

As always, I apologize for the poor pics - I'm working on it!

Comments and Criticism welcome!

VERY NICE! Is the steel whip a Privateer Press piece; looks good. She's has a disturbing allure about her partially due to the mini & mostly due to a fine bit of painting. The purple & white is a good choice of colors. WELL DONE! thumbsup
