750 Points of Sisters.

I've now finished the 250 point chunk of Sisters of Battle that I aimed to have painted in March, meaning I can move on to the 250 point chunk I aimed to get paint in April. Getting there.

500 points of Sisters!

500 points
Got my second 250 point chunk painted, which means I am now ready to start the 250 points I should have started in march. I know it might not be appropriate to hope the Covid-19 lockdown carries on, but I kind of hope it carries on long enough for me to get my entire army painted. In this blog you will see some miniatures you have seen before as I have reorganized the squads.

Plastic Sisters!

The first 250 points
So after not updating my blog for so long, this would usually be the point at which I would make some kind of offhand comment about not being dead. However, given this current virus stuff that might be a little on the nose.

Let's focus on the positive, this year my plan was to paint 250 points of sisters of battle each month until I had a fully painted 2000 point army of the new plastic sisters. Due to mounting work pressure and a World of Warcraft addiction, it has been pretty slow going. But, seeing opportunity in a crisis I have decided to catch up on my plans during this Lockdown. Which I seem to be enjoying far more than most people.

My Lovely Wife is also joining in and you can see her stuff here:

Before I get into the rest of the pictures, I just want to say that I seem to have forgotten how to take decent photographs. Google has doubtless 'improved' my camera app which may be the source of my issue.

Fallen Techmarine (Warpsmith)

Fallen Techmarine
So; I said in my last post that I was planning on expanding my fallen detachment out into a full 2000 points fallen themed chaos space marine army. This is the first part of that second half of the army. I know I haven't quite painted the first half yet, but I like to rotate through character- squad - vehicle for my own sanity.

My Warcry Warband

No, these aren't new models that I have just painted. I just wanted to talk a little bit about Warcry.

Another Rhino

I did another Rhino, much like I did the previous Rhino. See, this is why I never stick to large army projects. Because painting one of something is fun, painting the three copies of that same thing is less interesting and I have less to say.

Second squad of fallen angels

Fallen Angels
See, sometimes I get back to projects it looks like I have abandoned. Not much to say on the painting since I painted these in exactly the same way I painted my previous selection of fallen - the Librarian you have also seen before.

One Shot - Pinup

One Shot - Pinup
So they released another relic knights miniature. This one is a 'pinup' version of a character for a game which is already pretty well hitting the absurd anime sex appeal thing. Hence the lack of trousers.

Funnily enough smooth expanses of skin are a difficult thing to paint well. I think I did a reasonable job. I'm also quite pleased with how the face came out, although frankly, anime faces are a bit cheaty because their eyes are supposed to be enormous.

I have to say, a bit of a palate cleanse from edge highlighting seemingly endless armour plates on an imperial knight.

I am aware this won't be to everyone's taste. Normal, space marine related service will resume shortly.

The Pale Knight

The Pale Knight
I don't need another knight. I have enough knights to feild an entire 2000 point army of House Krast Knights. Bit of a story to this.
