Featured "dood" of the indeterminate time period

Today I offer up Games Workshop's "Saint Celestine" from the Witchhunters line of figures.

This is probably one of my favorite figures I have painted to date. I wish I did a better job on her halo - I'm not terribly happy with the way it came out. I really dig the cherubs on her cloak.

I used a chunk of stone to build up her base, and tossed a bolter out there to show her ascension, and give a sense of a war torn battlefielf. This was also the first time I ever painted a rust effect on anything. Basically it involved undercoating black and then heavily stippling scorched brown followed by lighter stippling of vomit brown. The last bit was to tickle the metal bits with blazing orange - so it's really quite easy to do. One could hit the edges and leave patches of silver underneith to show where the rust may have scraped off in places.

Anyway - that is this piece in a nutshell. I'd like to maybe one day paint up another one to see what improvements I have made in my painting.
