Lookin' good. I'd add some script (or thin wobbly black lines) to the purity seals, being careful not to overdo them. The painting on the organist is nice.

Your new loader does look better but wouldn't it be better for him to have a rocket in his hand?

Another update. Working on my Cannoness.

I want my Cannoness to stand out from the other sisters in a significant way, so I'm going for extended robes made from green stuff and maybe a hood. She started out as a Seraphim.

There is quite a lot of work still to do before I can begin painting. The sword needs a lot more work especially, and I have to add scrolls, books and the like. The heretic at her feet is going to look at least partially burned, which will be a bit of a challenge.

What I should really be doing, is painting troops. I'm making this cannoness when I don't even really know what weapons and wargear she is going to have, and that's silly. Fun though. My next project is to get a proper squad ready.

Here she is anyway.





To get the waves in the robe I extended the lines of the tabard thing that the model originally had. I'm quite pleased with the results.

Some work was needed on the feet since the Seraphim was flying. I opted to copy the John Blanche cover of the original codex for and go for killer heels. She is quite a bit taller than other SoBs, even without standing on a step.



Hope you like it. C+C much appreciated.

I like it, damn cool conversion! The heels are hysterical and yet awesome at the same time and the pose fits perfectly, especially with the sword held as it is. Going to be a cool model.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Some progress to report.

It has not been a good 24 hours for the heretic. In order to make way for a brazier taken from the VC corpse cart model (which is an amazing source of bitz by the way) he has had to part with his legs. He has grown a horn sticking out of his shoulder, but this is probably no substitute.

At time of taking these photos the green stuff was still not set. I've done some tidying up and filing since then, especially on the hilt of the sword, but now my camera batteries are flat.

I want to try some OSL painting and I think this could work well. The metal of the sword and the white cloth could both be interesting with OSL.

Some of the bits aren't glued on yet, to help when I come to painting. The heretic isn't stuck on, but his guts are sculpted straight onto the base, and the brazier is free-standing.

Brilliant work on the sword hilt. Its always hard to convert the nuns. I'm in the process of making celestine superior from the exorcists organist.

Looks good so far... one thing I'd be careful of when painting is that the base is in muted colours so it doesn't distract from the main figure.

Also I'm unsure of the hood. It's cool but ATM she can't see a thing...

I think it wants to be trimmed very slightly so that she can see along the end of the boltpistol she's aiming and so you can see the very bottom of her face.

That is fantastic, especially the sword hilt!! I can't wait to see how this turns out. One thing though:

I suggest you try this on something else first. Take a look at my Tson project and you will see that I originally had white cloth on them as well but ended up changing it because it did NOT look right with the OSL. Not to say that you can't pull it off, but test it on something else before you have to strip and possibly damage this model.

The emperor guides her blows...or somthing! The lower part of her face is actually visible, though her eyes are not. I kind of like how it looks now though.

I've had a good look at your tsons, which are very good. I think that for this figure I'll be doing rather less extreme OSL than you get for standing on lava. She is near a brazier after all, not standing on a volcano. It's good advice to try it out on something else first though, and I think I do have some things I could use. I'll give it some thought.

Salute tomorrow, so probably no more work. Seems I'm going down with a cold though, so maybe I'll be stuck at home painting.
