Default Sisters of Battle test scheme... need opinions.



A VERY rough test scheme, knocked it out in about 25 minutes, just to see how the colours looked together. Armour is Midnight Blue (though it looks more purple to me). Piping is Steel (non GW paint) The beads on the thing around her waist was an accident, I mixed the steel colour with red and made an interesting metallic pink colour... I like it a lot actually. I'm considering switching to a more toned down, but still bright, blue for the cloth. Also, I've already decided that I'm changing the colour on the face since it makes her look like a zombie :-X Not sure about the colours on the bolt pistols... might just go with generic red. No highlights or minor details yet (heck I haven't even finished priming her... only the front is primed :P


Comments? Anything I should change/ add?

I like it
The painting could be better but I realize this is just a test model anyway.

Yea I didn't even bother fixing any mistakes, since I need to finish priming them anyway.

I like the armor but I don't think the blue works well with it at all. I really think it would look great with a light color on the cloth. I think bleached bone would look really good. Also the red doesn't contrast too well, I think a much darker red like scab red mixed with a little black would look nicer. I do like the gold in there I think incorporating some more in the model would work nicely. With the face, use some ink like flesh wash and the add some more of the original color on the raises areas to get some quick and easy skin.

If you paint the robes well then it should look fine.

When I see many dark colors, I look for an accent or highlight that would make them "pop" some. LIke say, white bolters with gold or silver trim.

It looks cool, but I'd paint the robes with a darker blue. And try to mix the colour for the armour with "steel" ;D Maybe it'll look nice
