Summary

Not going to lie, I just like the Sisters of Battle. And I happened to stumble across one for cheap so I figured, why not? I wanted to try something different from any of the ordinary color schemes though. I wanted to see if I could find something a little more neutral and regal, so I favored a dark grey, a light grey, and added in a tertiary of a light violet/blue.

What I Learned/What I’d Do Differently

Doing it again, I’d make sure I thinned my paints a little more. I’d also add more shades of light grey or off white to the hair to give it some more depth. And lastly I’d add some more distinct highlights to the lighter grey sections of armor. I should also actually put some effort and layering into the face.
