WIP: Sisters of Battle St. Celestine

Apart from those Blood Angels tanks (and several other things of course) I'm currently working on my very own St.Celestine. I've had the model for almost 10 years now and only now got to paint it, especially as I took up playing my Sisters of Battle again and with the new rules from the WD codex I just don't know what to do with my Canoness any more. She's a good shot but without too amazing gun options, she's squishier than ever before, the less powerful acts of faith and the lack of jump pack option left me a bit clueless. So there - St.Celestine! Hope you like her so far.


  1. I always loved this model - maybe I should get one for my collection as long as it is still available in metal? Also great work on the blade!

  2. Nicely done, and yes, the model looks great.
    Could you share how you've painted gold? th one on top of the model, ark-a-like with spikes.

  3. Wow! How did you get your reds in the folds so dark?

  4. Nice work on the skin tones. She looks so peaceful, you know except for that giant sword...

  5. @Stahly: Definately. Beautiful model, just like the whole SoB range. They can't make those better in plastic.

    @Pijamas Gagarin: Thanks. It's all about the base colour for gold. On my SoB army (yus, that's one of my OWN minis for a change ;) ) I use Tin Bitz as a base. For years I had no idea what to make of this colour but then I realized it's utter beauty.

    @James Convy: I left them black. :)

    @Zab: Cheers, You gotta pay some attantion to such a beautiful face.
