Sister Bertrille, a Sister of Battle 80mm figure
« on: June 24, 2020, 01:31:59 PM »
Many orbits of Sol ago, I read a Sci Fi book that had a combat group of Nuns as combatants. No idea what the book was, but would probably love to read it again.
Apparently, these days, the Sisters of Battle is a thing, in the Warhammer World. So I sort of had to get on board.

This is a Resin print figure to around 75mm scale from an Anycubic Resin 3D printer, these things really are the next phase in model creation.

The Sisters of Battle normally do not appear to wear headress, but that did cut it for me, it needed a bit of Wimple action.
Added a Wimple using AK Greenpower, I had a sample of. Rolled out and formed it into something approaching a simple Wimple  ???



Then it was go to town with the painting. Nowhere near as good as you see on the web, those guys and gals are artists.




The base is from my now positively crude Up 3D printer.

Ah, the Little Sisters of the Lord's Eternal Mercy! ;D


She looks a bit blokey but I figure that's to be expected, really. ;)


Great job there, BT! :smiley: :smiley:

That's directly from a 3D printer? Wow!  :icon_surprised:

he/she looks great! I don't understand wargamming "scales" and why the figures are always deformed, but it looks cool.

Cool!!  It reminds me of the "Battle Nun" comics that Antarctic Press once, and may still - for all I know, publish.
