So I made a deal with a friend and we went in on the Heroes of the Imperium thing. I got Celestine and her two bodyguards. I am putting my own wings on them. These are sculpted on thin plasticard. So far I have Celestine done and one of her bodyguards. You can see the unpainted ones below. Celestine isn't attached to that wire, so I still have options there.
Here is my on-going sculpt of Saint Celestine. I finally bought the latest codex and in it she is the only way you can have a character leading your seraphim, so I am forced to create my own model. Each of the galleries show a stage in my sculpting. I am using as my base, the Reaper Dark Heaven Lurien Ghost. Because I think it is one of the best faces I have ever seen on a miniature.
Here she is, Painted. I put red roses on her base so she stands out from my other Saraphim. I made her a strawberry blond for some contrast and also painted the sword to look like it was on fire to match the ardent blade she carries. Her armor is gold in her backstory but I did not want to use a metallic paint. So, this is my attempt at NMM. It is okay, I am happy with it, but I still have much to learn.
