Canoness Veridyan Completed

More light today so final pic to post of this mini.

She has a suitably skully base consistent with the original artwork for the mini.

She is finished but there is not enough light to photograph her properly. Here are 2 glimpses of her. More pics tomorrow if there is any daylight then.

Inquisitor Greyfax

Just finished assembling Inquisitor Greyfax. She comes as part of the Triumvirate of the Imperium set. The molding in plastic is superb. She comes in 13 parts which have been cunningly designed to hide mold lines. There is very little in the way of mold lines anyway on this mini. The pose of the mini itself on its own is quite contemplatively still. She is looking downwards and to the left with her weapon pointing to the ground and her left hand by her side. I thought this looked uninspiring on a plain base and looked a bit like a "Joey from Friends f..rt acting pose". This left the mini with the question of what she was looking at and why. So here she is posed on some planking over a pool into which effluent is discharging examining a snake like creature for evidence of abomination.

Canoness Veridyan Progress

This is a highly detailed mini with many fiddly and intricate bits to paint. When faced with this level of detail I find it is always easier to paint disassembled and then do some final touching up after assembly. One problem I find with finecast/resin minis is that it is so easy to accidentally remove some paint from bits where you need to hold them to paint other bits. At the moment it looks as if I will be varnishing each section as I go along to reduce wearing of the paint as the mini is handled.

 The base has been modded with skulls from the spares box as the original artwork shows her standing on a sea of skulls.
