Do you want an army of Nuns to fight your tabletop battles for you?

(What a silly question: Of course you do!)

By presence of HWT I am guessing it's supposed to be not-IG. I don't get why they all wear Adidas shoes, though, and what is donkey from Shrek doing here...

Hard pass. Faces are bad and the shoes reek of CAD copy paste.

Well would you look at the time, it's zombie o'clock!

Shoes are weird, then again I have no idea what kind of shoes do nuns usually wear.
On the faces, I don't see them that bad, most of them are either shouting or with frowned/angry expressions, and most people don't look particulary good in those situations.
Moreover, I kinda appreciate that not all females are specially attractive face-wise, although all of them having similar and pronounced feminine corporal features substracts from that. Having some more variability in body types would have been a nice touch.

While I am not getting them (I backed the Anvil Industries kickstarter and I really like those miniatures), I can see some potential to these, although I agree that some things could really be improved. I would personally change the shoes (not really know what shoewear to give them), and probably add some details and/or armour.

Nuff said. :-)

The idea with the shoes is that they're generic non-warlike shoes (They're nuns!), but also I added a touch of extra height to them, so that after you've placed basing gravel on the base, they'll sit flush with the new raised surface of the gravel, and not be half-sunken into the basing material.

 

I definitely did the shoes this way because I found it funny. yes.gif

Six of the basic ten infantry Nuns have closed mouths. Four are talking and/or shouting, and the fisto-Nun character model is also shouting and pointing at the sky, as is traditional for character models. yes.gif

 

One of the stretch goals is free ammo pouches & water bottles etc sprues to add to the figures... might help with the extra details you'd like to see?

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

14 years of Catholic education. These shoes are very very accurate.

Thanks!

 

I googled photos of nuns and everything. happy.png

 

 

 

 

We've now passed 60% as it happens, looks like we're getting close to that magic point when we can start chasing down Stretch Goals!

Let's just stick with announcements from the Kickstarter, folks.

=][=
Active Projects: The Great Repaintening! - follow along on my journey to repaint a Blood Ravens army. | Adeptus Titanicis: Legio Metalica - a slow-grow plog of tiny titans and tinier knights.
Finished Projects: Brother Casman's Waaagh! - All of my Orks... for now. | Brother Casman's Terrain Extravaganza! - Getting the "Third Army" on the battlefield

In the operations of war, [...] the expenditure at home and at the front, including entertainment of guests, small items such as glue and paint, and sums spent on chariots and armor, will reach the total of a thousand ounces of silver per day. Such is the cost of raising an army ...

Sounds like a fun idea!

 

With a big jump in pledges in the last 24 hours, we're now up to 80% Funded. Once we hit 100% we can start chasing those Little Donkeys. :-)

Putting a grin on people's faces is definitely the idea. biggrin.pngbiggrin.png

 

 

 

 

 

 

Incidentally, we passed 100% Funded today!

That means we can start chasing Stretch Goals!

 

First up at £1750, assuming we get there(!), will be the Unlocking of the Little Donkey Cavalry!

The little donkeys are actual little donkeys? I thought you were joking about eating burritos with the kickstarter money.
