Look at me old sod buying myself a GW model! 😀
Other than with my regular GW purchases I actually build and paint her pretty much right away though. Over the past year I also bought that new Cauldron of Blood and the new War Hydra, but they’re still safe in their shrink wrap.
I’m a sucker for 2nd edition 40k though and I do like my Sisters of Battle army, so I had to have this mini.
Much to my surprise she’s cast in finecast. I’d fully expected her to be cast in plastic. That made me realize that Finecast is a bit of a daft material. I’d have proper metal over that any day. the casting is fine, but could be crisper. Other than that of course it’s a nice callback, and it’s fun to add another character to my army. Yup, it’s 2017 and I’m actually adding a figure to one of my 40k armies. Weird, I know.
