Hi all! I'll admit, I had decided I wasn't going to collect sisters. Don't get me wrong, I'd seriously considered it, even almost purchased the army box, but with two of my group of friends already slated to grab them I had decided to let my interest lie and concentrate on other projects. Fast forward a month or two to my birthday and the arrival of a friend on leave from the army for a few days, bearing a rather large birthday gift. Now, I'm no stranger to his gifting process which can be inadequately described as "generous" and I was expecting having to scold him yet again for spending too much on me when I just can't do the same in return (3 year olds tend to spend your money fater than you can make it). As he passed me the gift I noticed how heavy it was for an army box sized present, immediately intrigued by what it was. At this point I assumed it wasn't anything hobby related as sprues just don't weight that much. My son and I tore into the wrapping paper, famously over-wrapped so it took us a while, revealing in all it's glory the sisters army box.
So now I play sisters after all!
I must say, I'm such a happy bunny. Assembling and painting the first few models has been such a joy and I have constantly kept my friend updated with my progress, hopefully he appreciates it as a small token of how blown away I am.
So, I'm here to create a log of my progress. It may not be updated that often, who knows? Below is what I have so far. I present the Order of the Bloody Rose:
I'm not sure how these will turn out when viewed on the post, but I have used a contrast metallic red method for the armour. To the naked eye they pop quite nicely.
