Rhyas, Sigil of Everblight

Next up in my catch-up postings is Rhyas. She's both ninja and warcaster and all around pretty awesome. I have to say that this model was easy to really pour my time into. Everything was easily accessible for painting, and there's great delineation of the various surfaces which makes the model very readable. When I was painting Rhyas I kept Saeryn on my desk as well so that I could try to get these two to match as much as possible. I have to say I'm quite pleased at how well the pair goes together.

One specific thing that worked really well on this model was the black leather. I feel like the color tone and shading all worked out better than most other Legion models I've done so far. Now admittedly I spent a fair amount of time on it and wouldn't use this same detailed process on a unit, it was still a good step forward for me.

Next up will be the Hex Hunters!

Very nice! The base suites her and the scarf really pops. Quick question: did you paint her pieces separately and then put her together? It seems her sword arm covers a good part of her torso when it's on.

Thanks for the compliment! I painted her fully assembled, but separate from the base (my preferred procedure). The sword arm is actually out a bit from her torso so it was pretty easy to get to all the surfaces.
