Showcase: Mini Morathi
So, it is a new week and I actually had some time this weekend to do a bit of hobby-ing. My last post I completed the large Morathi model. Well, today I have pictures of the other half of that unit, the small Morathi model.
This model seemed to paint up quickly. I started with the red and, before I knew it, I was finishing up the base and gluing down the basing material. While painting her, I ran into a couple of problems.
My first problem was that the arm with the spear came off. I decided that I would use that to my advantange and work around the spots that were hard to get to if the spear was there. A part of me wished to do this with her head, since the hair block some of the details on her dress and back but in the end I didn't.
Speaking of her hair, deciding which color to paint it was theother problem I had while working on the model. I thought about matching it the the hair from the other models from the Daughters army and go with a blue. I also thought about what the hair becomes when the model transforms into the larger model. In the end, I decided to match the hair with the snakes on the larger model. While I think matching the army would be nice, I thought matching the larger version made more sense.
Completing this model finishes my pledge for the month. I am free to move on to other projects. I have several in the works. I think I need to try to work on some 40k models since I have had worked on a lot of AoS lately. Hopefully, I can even find a game this Thursday. We shall see.
Have a good week!
