Default Converted and painted battle sister

Can anyone remember my battle sister project from eons ago?

Well, 2 years in the making I've finally managed to paint the superior:

As you can tell - I need to sort out the pose a bit - she's leaning...
And I really need to figure out how to paint eyes!











Things I am aware of - there are a few slip ups here and there - the purity seal on her right leg, the wash on the seal on her backpack and a bit of white splatter on her boots from the base. The hair is meant to be bright white - not old lady grey. And the eyes are a little too big.

That looks absolutely awesome! The only way I think you could improve is to make a battle sister of Tarja! I'd steal a model like that in an instant!

I spy Dark eldar bitz?

Very nice for scratch-built. You've aced that parchment around her waist
With white, any shading you do to it makes it look a lot darker than if u did the exact same shading to a colour other than white. - if you get what im trying to say lol :-X Because it contrasts so much.

Id just lighten the shading of her hair to something like fortress grey:white 70:30 if you want it brighter.
Although IMO it looks pretty good as it is.

Nice work there, mate. I love the conversion. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the force...in another 2 years.

She's being planned - just need to figure out how to do it!
