Yes indeed. I decided to have a go at hosting a forum, for all you gamers and hobbyists out there to come together and talk about anything hobby related. The page is only a couple of days old, and is still being moved and tweaked here and there, but please stop by, register (it only takes a minute) and join in!
So, I have finally finished the first Battle Sister of my order, The Ancient Order of the Exalted Saint. The colors are essentially the same as the Protectorate of Menoth, but hey, they are all religious zealots, are they not? The photos are a little blurry, as my GF’s camera seems to be playing games. Plus the lighting seems very ‘orangy’, even though I had 2 lamps right up close. I guess i’ll have to experiment more. Now I have the scheme sorted out, hopefully the rest of the squad should be a whole lot easier to do. See what you think:
I know I know it’s been a little while since I posted something, about a month i’d say? Thats not to say I haven’t been feverishly working behind the scenes on my mini’s. I have been more constructing and assembling than painting. We are having some nice days weather wise, so I have been taking advantage of it and undercoating loads of my mini’s. As a side note, I have tried a whole bunch of different spray undercoats recently, Games Workshop, Armory and some others, but I think I have found one that seems to work well across the board and has good coverage. Krylon make a paint called ‘Fusion’ which is what I have been using. It’s about $8 and is available from JoAnne Fabrics and any other good art/craft/hobby stores. Here is a direct link to the stuff I use:
So I have finally settled on a color scheme for my Sisters ‘Order of the Exalted Saint’. It took me about 10 seconds to realise that it was basically the same as the traditional Protectorate of Menoth scheme, but I figured, ‘hey, if the caps fits, wear it…’ So, my zealous warrior women will be decked out in maroon-ish armor, with beige-ish robes. I’ll probably have my Seraphim in a vaguely similar scheme too, maybe with less maroon though, to distinguish them a little more. I’m excited to have settled on this now, as the wheels can finally start to turn and I can get my Battle Sisters on the field. I assembled my Immolator the other night and I can’t wait to get this painted up in the colors i’ve chosen, especially with the golds and all that, it should look quite impressive. Not a bad thing to take in before being sentenced to a heretics death at the muzzle of twin linked multi-meltas…
Can you see the dawn approach?
or see the fire in the sky?
Now the closing chapter of humanity,
the inevitable fate of mankind
Can you still believe in hope
on this darkest day you have known?
Will you still thank your precious god
or have the seeds of doubt been sown?
Will you admire the landscape
of broken bodies, of fallen men?
will you know the falling rain
as it burns onto your skin?
Devastation – untold
Pain and misery
the dying breath of hope
war-torn and bleeding…
Will you attempt in vain
to wash the bloodstains from your hands?
will you stop to lament the lost
their lives offered in your name?
Like a statue will you stand and stare
as though a cenotaph of despair
an inscription no-one will read
in this your final hour of need…
