Everything has happened before…
Yes, folks, I’ve been here before, on no less than three separate occasions… It’s once more time to try and paint the Sisters of Battle!
I first tried to paint these miniatures in early 2020, using a colour scheme vaguely reminiscent of the Deathwing.
That was as far as it went with this scheme, however!
Next up, from around the summer of that year, I had decided that painting white could be a good idea, and made a fairly decent, if still half-hearted effort at painting the squad as Order of the Sacred Rose.
Then, in 2021, I thought I had it cracked with a custom colour scheme of pale blue and grey:
But then I decided to use that colour combination for my Tau, and for the Sisters it would no longer cut the mustard.
So here we are, summer of 2022, and I’m once more thinking of a colour scheme. I have the coming week off work (I promise you, I do actually work full time – how else could I afford all this plastic crack?!) and I’m thinking it’s time I really made an effort to paint some of them. So by this time next week, you can expect to see the fruits of my labours with some test models! Having been through so many colour schemes one on top of another, though, I’m going to give the original ten models a break, and instead focus on some minis that I built up from the multi-part kit. I’ve stripped the paint from the monopose models though, and have been trying to clean them up as best I can. Hopefully, the test subjects will go well, and I’ll actually make a start on these, too! But I don’t want to over-commit myself. It is a fairly busy week, after all…
