MiniCharacters - Sister Of Battle by NicolasRGiacondino MiniCharacters - Sister Of Battle by NicolasRGiacondino
Happy Monday, folks!

Well, last week went down in flames again with deadlines, so I apologise for not uploading daily as usual these days; with any luck, I'll be able to do so this week or at least show you some of my other work as it is given the green light to disclose :)

I thought I'd kickstart the week with one of my -now regular- MiniCharacter pieces, which serve as a warm-up before diving deep into work and also as a side-commission to folks who've waited very long for theirs. I've also received requests and been asked for commissions of these kind of pieces themselves, so I'm very grateful for all the positive feedback you've given me, especially considering it is a bit of a departure from my 'established' style.

Since there will be a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of Dark Millenium filling my days for the months to come, it seemed appropriate to illustrate one of the Emperor's finest; or a Bride of his, anyway :D It's been entirely too long since I drew a sister from the Ordo Sororitas, so this was a rediscovery of how awesome these women can be. They were my first choice as an army back in the day when I was first starting to dabble in the Warhammer 40,000 community and it's a shame that they've not been given some new miniatures in a while. But despite not being updated, their design still rocks and shows the core of what the grim darkness of the far future is all about.

So, I hope you enjoy this one and get ready to see more Warhammer from me in the near future.

Have a great week and see you tomorrow!

Nic.-

¡Gracias, nacho! Siempre es un placer oir que te gustan mis dibujos, no solo porque admiro tu trabajo desde hace años como bien sabes, si no porque has acompañado a Warhammer 40,000 desde hace añares :D

Thank you so much, Joseph! And yes, I believe by now if GW decided to change them or make a redesign, we would lose something in the process.

Badass! I particularly like the lighting effects for the power sword, and the way the light plays off of the daemonic severed head.

It's probably the thick shoulder armor, but there's a chibi-esque look to this piece, which leads to fun thoughts like "Sister Serena, the Littlest Scourge of the Xenos".  Among the most devout of the Emperor's servants, no matter their stature.

If you look at it, most 40k models are a bit chibiesque.

Indeed! In fact, this image was done in the style I'm excersising with in my warm-ups which is more exaggerated and 'cartoony' than the usual. Hence why you feel that particular distortion.
