I think this would be a good time to say a belated thank you for 40,000 hits :)

Sister of Battle from the Order of our Martyred Lady.
I've yet to name her, so I'm open to suggestions :)

This is by far the biggest thing I've attempted. 200+ hours over 8 months, 146 layers... were it not for :icondeadxcross:'s incessant nagging I probably wouldn't have finished this at all :p Cheers bro!

In all honesty though, most of the time spent on this piece was spent failing >.<
I really need to go back to basics and learn anatomy and perspective.
Textures from cgtextures.

Also: I hate painting gold trim. Why do imperials wear so much damn gold trim?! :iconurseriousplz:

Anyway, I'm just glad this is finally over.

Bolters, I'm guessing, are not all the same caliber or size... the standard Astartes boltgun is meant to be so big that carrying one is meant to be like some child-like fantasy for even a grown woman (Dan Abnett; Brothers of the Snake...)... said woman wasn't wearing power armour, but the difference while massive surely wouldn't apply to a gun that's so ridiculously big for its wielder, one would therefore assume that there are smaller variants of the same gun that still fires those miniature rocket propelled projectiles ... they do, after all, have bolt pistols, therefore.... 

They don't quite go through the 'same stuff' as the space marines; while they're devastatingly powerful heavy infantry, they're still, ultimately human; also, while they wear power armour, they can't interface with their armour the same as the Astartes do (no black carapace...) ... either way; these bitches be cray, I would not fuck with one with anything less then a lascannon and a lot o distance. No thank you, I value my scrotum far too much for such tomfoolery :/

Actually I always wanted to know how the Sisters are able to carry/use bolters since they come from the same place as Commissars and there wasn't any details of them going through the same stuff as the Space Marines.

Are you fucking kidding me? Dont be so hard on yourself this artwork is fantastic and I am not saying that to give you encouragement. Heck no, this piece of art is really the kinda one that I just have to save on my PC.
