Exorcist again

OK, short post today, a quick update on the exorcist work in progress - here it is on the painting table. Work has started on the body details and is close to completion for the upper hull. The launcher tubes need the purity symbols finished and text added to the various banners. The pilot and loader are finished. The pilot and missile rack are now fixed in place. The loader await final fixing of the upper hull structures. It still needs baroque detailing for the upper decking, perhaps text with icons presented above. I am not yet certain of this. A lot depends on how the hull final detailing goes. The mini has an enormous amount of detail, some of which is my own fault as I have added this beyond that designed on to the model. While it is a pricey mini from GW for the modeller there is plenty to work on which makes it reasonable vfm.

Besided the Exorcist the Sisters of Battle collection is getting some Celestinians as a body guard for the Cannoness. The challenge for this group is the addition of a sacred banner. GW no longer produce this mini although it seems that they did in the past. On ebay these minis seem to go for unreal sums. So the plan is to add a banner to an existing bolter armed SoB in the simplest fashion. The hard part remains the banner itself. Designs would be appreciated.
