Summary

Similar to the Cleric miniature, I wanted to do something non-GW. And this is also a model I wanted to paint for a long time. I really love the line of action in it and the interesting dichotomy between the hard metal armor and the flowing dress. No real new techniques but I was pleased with the way the armor turned out since I had never done a model with that much on it.

What I Learned/What I’d Do Differently

Wouldn’t really change much on this model. Maybe want to make a more elaborate base, but I can’t turn down “free with the purchase of the model.” Maybe one day, I’ll add a brighter highlight to the dress. But for now I kind of like the dreariness of it.
