Howdy all,

 

A wee while ago I picked up the Sister Superior Amalia Novena model on a whim, thinking that I'd plonk her into one of the (many) INQ28 retinues lurking in my study, but when my attention finally drifted from other projects onto her, one of the little cogs clicking away in my skull went into overdrive and somehow this happened:

Canoness Elynor Flint, Order of the Unending Vigil.

 

Spoiler

 

As a result of all this, I've been bit by the bug and will be collecting an army of Nuns With Guns when they finally hit the shelves. I'm not a fan of the new Canoness model so this lass will serve as both my inevitable army's HQ as well as a character in my INQ28 project.

 

Nothing special, just thought I'd share. All suggestions for improvement welcome and appreciated!

Wow I totally love the green armor looks wonderful! And the dead demon on the ground looks really cool too. It's nice seeing out of the box paint schemes.

Excellent work. Are the cultist's horns the result of the Chaos Gods' blessings, i.e., a mutation? Or cosmetic surgery to make him (her?) look intimidating?
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Thank you! I'm quite pleased how the metallic green turned out.

 

Earlier this year I made a witch's brew of Waywatcher Green, Tamiya Clear Green, Biel-tan Green and a dash of Hexwraith Flame, all blended with Army Painter's Quickshade Wash Mix and Lahmian Medium. Sadly I did not write down the ratios to recreate this formula, leaving me with a single 17ml dropper bottle of the stuff to work with when I get my hands on some SOB kits. I'm slightly worried that I won't be able to recreate the mix when it runs out, and I doubt that any of the new contrast paints will yield a consistent result...

My original concept was for it to be a minor mutation, inspired by the horned skeletons on the cover of the original Codex: Witch Hunters, but the idea of the horns being cosmetically grafted onto the dude's skull is deliciously grim. It brings to mind of one of the Sons of Horus in Vengeful Spirit, who had shards of loyalist armour shaped into horns and wedged into his skull while apothecaries were treating him for a head wound. Nothing quite says "radical" like a pair of horns!

These details can add a lot of "character" to our characters, making them seem like real people instead of stand-ins with which a talentless hack may screech about the Vice and/or Virtue of the Day (see TOO MANY writers in 2019).

I'm sure you'll figure it out unless you make the rest of the armor a different shade than she is could work too!
