Media - statuesque miniatures
It took far too long, but the first four Scions of my converted all-women Kill Team squad are done! Absolutely stoked with how well they came out, in particular the faces as well as the goggles on the one second from the left. There was absolutely no drybrushing on these at all, but given how much time drybrushing saves and the fact that I've got another nine of these to paint, I'm definitely going back to drybrushing for the larger areas because I want to actually get the rest of these finished some time in the next five years. 😛

Okay I lied, I COULD be bothered breaking out the airbrush for one single miniature. She's all finished now! Next stop, the other thirteen members of the squad. 😅

I've finished off the test model for my new Scion squad, and I am absolutely STOKED at how well she came out, in particular her face and eyes! She's not FULLY finished yet, I still need to apply varnish and then put the snow sprinkles and winter bushes on the base (oops, and also paint the lens on the thing beside her head which I didn't notice I hadn't painted until I was looking at it just now), but I can't be bothered pulling out the airbrush and setting it up and cleaning it out again for just one single miniature. I'd signed up to Duncan Rhodes' Painting Academy (https://www.duncanrhodes.com) a couple of months ago, the videos are fantastic and clear and extremely well-produced, and I used his technique and colours for the face in particular. It's all of £4/month and there's a ton of videos and more added weekly.

There we go, the entire all-women squad of Scions is finished! Super-happy with my conversions here, next stop is to do a full zenithal base coat with the airbrush (full black undercoat followed by white sprayed from the just top 45 degrees or so of the miniature so it's highlighted where light would naturally fall).

Woo, the first three members of my all-women Astra Militarum Scions squad are assembled!

Woohoo, the replacement female heads for my miniatures arrived today. They're metal but surprisingly good quality, can't wait to get them all painted up. (I think I'm going to wait for my airbrush stuff to arrive before I get stuck in.)
