|Arms I added look terrible side on but the model's natural profile is worth photographing|
I was really taken in by the models Jeff Vader had posted recently on his own site and on the Inq28 forums at The Ammo Bunker. The Warhammer Witch models are both graceful and dynamic and my green hobby monster was compelled to grab a kit and see if I could manage anything so amazing as he had.
|The cranial plug and a nasty scar|
I chose a Penitent as the subject. Most of the inspiration came from a Dave Gallagher drawing depicting a shorn penitent with a cranial implant and a pile of skulls on her back. The character was wielding a blade. I remembered an image John Blanche had created of a Penitent with a pistol and decided to go that route.
|The plasticard hanging from her mouth will be a painted as parchment. Hopefully my freehand can convincingly script it|
I like where the model went but wish I had smaller small arms at hand. On the first build I had used twin bolt pistols that were ridiculously oversize. Not yet painted but already a smiter of heretics; two cultists had to die so she could get more reasonably sized kit. I hope to get some paint on this one pretty soon. If I could get some comments/criticisms before the primer coat goes on and the build is set in stone that I'd be much obliged.
