I like the Sister. Maybe try using boltgun or something else on the hoses at the gorget to break up all of the white between the armor and her hair.
All of my armies and current projects.

I agree that the hair and armour are a lot of white. The hair some of happened during the painting, so to say. So i´m leaving it this way, but the not all the sisters will be having this hair colour.

Yes, i´m jumping a bit, but it´s within the project. I have so many half finished armies and other projects, so this time i try to keep it within this army. Chaos (marines, an old lost and the damned project and those new shiny deamons) is already callling, but i really want to finish this.

Finished the libby yesterday. Still not 100% happy with the sword, but for now it´s good enough. I kept trying things, and it simply didn´t became what i wanted. For the ones who read my tread, i´m saying other that i´m not 100% happy with my models. But i´ve learned to move on, so that i finish an army ( a big problem most of the time for me) and then after go back to upgrade the models. So i can play with a painted army, instead of a half painted one. Because even if i like the painted models in the half painted one, i will not be happy with the whole army for the logical reason that is only half done :roll:

And i´m going to paint the 5 DV termies for april unit. Their might be some strech goals, but have not got anything specific planned yet.

the strechgoals are known.

My veterans come in, so they are ready to be my command squad with a devestation banner.
So they will be my first strechgoal.
And a unit of sisters plus 1 extra, so i can switch between weapons of the sister superior.Perhaps a certain saint will also show up, but i´m still thinking about her base. Mine is curently on a termi bases, and i do think it looks better this way. However she should be on a small base, and there are some tournaments that demand the corret base. So i have to decide to do one or the other, or make a termi base where i can put the small base in.

Put for now at least these guys and girls:

I really like the DV Libby and the job you did with him is great. I can't wait to get around to him myself, someday.

And yeah, "perfect is the enemy of good" is my mantra when painting. And the payoff of a fully painted army, even if the individual models aren't up to what one may want for them, is much geater than the simple sum of those models.

When i look at my "older" armies, this one is going to look great. Even If i will never touch the models i have painted at the moments. And those painted ones are a great motivation to get more stuff finished.

And thanks for the complements.

ANd my unit of sisters are finished. I´ve tried to paint these models a few time in previous years, but always hated them. I just couldn´t get it right, and left them after 1 model. But this time i really liked them. Guess the different way of painting is paying of for the girls

I have 2 sister superiors in here, so i can switch between weapons (and save on points if needed)

First of all, a update on the banner.
Image

I released halfway doing the base colours on the saint there wasn´t a pre picture, so this will have to do.
Image

Yesterday the wife was out, because she is out doing the make-up for a film student project (with the following result)
Image

So i´ve had most of the day to paint, with an already finished Celestine as result. She does have the curse of the eyes going at the moment. But as always, move on, fix later. (mostly it´s not the biggest problem of the tabletop)

ANd the termies are finished. I had some doubt about ever finishing these 5 models, because i really hated them. I´ve gone for a certain way to do the white, and the more i use it, the less i like it. But because it´s all the same army i have to stick with it.

The veterans are going well, however. The 2 "basic" ones were quite quick to finish.
The scout was painted in a spare hour i had, and me feeling to do something different (something to do with termies i didn´t like to go painting). For him and his friends there aren´t any real plans for in the near future, but every painted model is one extra.

For my may commitment: The SoB Exorcist. ( yes there are more parts, but it´s no use doing those before the base parts of the vehicle are done)
Image

This one will probably be painted this week, because if this one is finished, i will have a fully painted 1500 point list for some local gaming planned on the 4th of may
