The Flight - Part Five


I'm back with another update of work on my Inquisitor warband diorama "The Flight". Click on the link here to take you back to the last four updates.

Well, this update shows the work so far on Sister Aaliyah, the Repentia soul-bonded to my inquisitor. Above you can see the initial take on her. Using Dark Elf Corsair legs and Daemonette torso and head, I'd got quite a ways down the track to having her done...

Then GW released the new Dark Elf models. I went halves in the Cauldron of blood model with a friend who really wanted the Medusa. Below you can see my second version of Aaliyah underway. Still a bit more work to be done, but I'm enjoying the slenderness of her frame, particularly when compared to the bulk of Urgo-Wrath.



Anyway, I'll leave these images here. Feel free to tear them apart ; )

Cheers
Dave

  1. How do you get those seals to look so damn good?

    1. Hi Xi, those seals are cut from very thin strips of plasticard and then carefully curled.

  2. The 'reactive' pose is definitely more suited to a diorama than the forward stance, it will certainly open up the scene. I agree the slender model works well too.

  3. Those are absolutely fantastic - great sense of motion. Keep up the beautiful work!

  4. Great improvement over the first figure (which was already good), but I think you need to work on her nose a bit. The face is a bit too obviously from a daemonette.

    Another niggle, the eviserator looks more like she is going to spear someone above her with the butt than it looks like a heavy chopping blade. I think if you dropped the right arm down a bit it might help.

    1. Yep, a new nose is on the way. I'll look into the arm-dropping idea. Thanks.
