Here's lookin' at you, kid.

Time to show a little more skin.  A Raging Heroes Sci Fi Blood Vestal on the menu.  It's the same as the Vestals I used for the Dark Eldar army at Adepticon.

Setting out the glazes.  It was pretty wild to be painting this in such a different color scheme!

These side exercises are always so much fun!

Don't look now!

Using the same colors as the mini to create the huge sketch (at least by comparison!) is fun as well.

Almost there!

Sisters again!

Many thanks to the good folks at Raging Heroes for allowing me to use such fantastic minis!

Don't run away...

The Undead Samurai from Darkhammer.

Here is something new... a large scale resin figure from Darkhammer.  The base is about 80mm, which should give you a good idea of size.  It is a very high quality casting, with absolutely no air bubbles or silly defects!  Yea!

It comes in some nice packaging:

This really keeps the pieces intact...

This shows the pieces in the plastic wrap that keeps them organized.

The parts after some cleaning:

And the assembled warrior.  The pieces fit together very very well.  I will not have to do very much to cover those edges!  It was easy to figure out what went where, as there are a number of pins and holes for each piece.

I did replace a few of the staffs with metal rods.  They matched the size of the original nicely.  The rods on the figure were just thick enough to get the drill bit through the critical areas!

I will take more images as I work on this.  The base is next!
