Female Cultists!
« on: March 14, 2013, 05:30:06 AM »
These were the best shots I could get, most are dark.  These are the command group set and troop set of Blood Vestals from Raging Heroes.  They are quite finely detailed and slender, but measure up quite well with the rest of the guardsmen.  I believe these are made from 3d printed masters so no hand sculpting.  Having painted these up, I really prefer hand sculpted minis.  Not to talk smack about the merits of printing, just a preference.

Anyhoo, I felt that the cult really needed female members, why wouldn't there be deranged women who want to spread the word.  I've called them the Betrothed, as in Betrothed to the Worm.  These are women who have promised themselves to the cause and are quite fanatical about it.  I wish that I could say I had fun painting them, but I'm getting tired of the same color scheme all the time.  One squad left to go now, so it's almost there.  Enjoy!

btw the design on the banner was supposed to be a worm with raised mantis like arms, but they look like wings.

Just wondering what exactly you did not like about painting these up. I got them some months back and was really impressed with their quality. One thing I have always liked about Hasslefree is the fact that there is so little flash to clear, but these Raging Heroes minis seem to need even less work.

Here is a review I wrote of them, its a little old though...

Well I did enjoy painting them but my enjoyment was at war with my "OMG not another squad of cultists" side.  Thanks Mr Teufel

Army shot is in the near future.  Which figures do you mean?
