~Ladies of Titan: female Grey knight~

Post  Paz on Tue Jun 24, 2014 10:48 am

Okay, before you fluff bunnies come at me bro, this was a commission request from James (Commander James of the U1), so shooooshhh.

James commissioned me to concept, sculpt and paint a female Grey knight terminator w/ magnetized cc weapons.

Concept: We went for hair like kate beckinsale (as close as one can get at 28mm scale with my basic skills).



Sculpting begins. I needed to create the enlarged gorget to fit the head inside (hair was gunna be big). The face is a dark eldar face with the hair scraped off and reapplied.
For anyone wondering, I used Green stuff mixed with terracotta milliput (creates a smoother surface I find, easier to bulk up).



Second day of sculpting: I went back to greenstuff (smoothed with vaseline) to create the finer details. I used Rare-earth magnets glued in and cemented over with milliput. It took a long time to decide the size of breast armor. Too small, and it loses the effect, too big and it'll look dumb.



Fully Painted: tabletop quality. Hair dryers, thats how you can paint super fast (no drying time). The armor went through a few layers (I used gunmetal mixed with some greys for a drybrushed base over black, followed by nuln oil wash, followed by gunmetal and silver highlight brush, followed by watered down blue wash followed by silvered line highlights).
Colors are based on Jame's army color scheme (as close as I could get).







thanks for lookin!

I like the idea, do people get touchy about stuff like that in competitions? Would someone actually make an effort to keep you from using that model for which ever grey knight squad they are apart of?

Around here, probably not (get touchy, that is).  So long as any apparently level of effort was put into the model, it will generally fly here.  That said, the above model has that in spades.

It's a fluff thing. There are very few things in 40k that are straight up black and white, and "NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES" is one of them. Due to how the Astartes geneseed interacts with the human body, it requires a male to work.

That being said, this model could just as easily stand in for a female inquisitor with Terminator Armor.

Fluffy wise it also mentions the the Emperor himself sired children. And if daddies little girl wants to fight with the Grey Knights and wear termy armor then so be it. LOL

I like putting her in the list, usually as a supb up Libby. Makes the army unique.
