|Darkness shields not sin nor schism. By our fires your will be done.|
Although Adam just finished converting a Sister of Battle to have a better-sized bolter, I have spent the last month or two painting a small squad of Sisters of Battle that I started back in March. The effort was focused on trying to mix Contrast paints with traditional acrylics, achieving a nice table-top standard, without laboring over any model too much. All of the models followed the red scheme I developed with the first model. After finishing the final member, wielding an over-sized flamethrower, I decided to go one step further and also paint an Arco-flagellant. Painting the model went really quickly, almost like a single-piece metal model, as it is not inundated with details or and doesn’t have weapons to paint behind. It was fun using various Citadel shades to add variation to the model’s skin tones, like using Carroburg Crimson to make the flesh around his amputations look inflamed.
