I love the Lhamaean model as well. I use them as haemonculi in my army because I don't think I'll ever use the Court of the Archon.

A beautiful model deserves a beautiful paint job, I haven't seen her painted like that before and it's really refreshing.

What other colours will be going on there?

dark silver in place of gold on the GW picture, plus blue / violet details (to match her make-up you know Smile
of course the dress is going to be blended more smoothly

the only problem is the knife she holds in her right hand - it's neither beautiful nor dark-eldar style and in general I'd get rid of it and replace it with some more delicate and better looking weapon...

Just noticed the stage 2 pic in the main thread, excellent! Looks like a real Ice Queen so far, much, much better than the original GW colour scheme.

Amazing facial details too, I couldn't do that if my life depended on it.

I wouldn't worry about the scabbard in her right hand. If you can change it, fine, but it's quite OK the way it is.

Thanks for the feedback - I'm quite happy with it too.
Now I'm trying to figure out a nice base that would add even more character to the model. I don't want it to be icy or snowy - it needs to be suitable for the rest of my army bases (this one is first).
Any suggestions?

She's not finished yet Wink but thanks for your opinion.

I've just posted stage 3 pictures:

And I'm sculpting a set of bases for my whole army - I should finish them in a few days, so stay tuned Wink

she's done Smile any comments (especially if you find anything I should still correct - she's already purity sealed, but hey - I might have missed something)

Ace work Wilku. I like that You've used blue (instead of black) to shade white. It give some life to the mini.

I love Space Wolves Grey and Shadow Grey for shading white, and that is precisely what I used. Somehow I don't like the Dark Angels' robes style (white with brown), and black is just too dark for shading white.

Now I have to figure out a quick way to replicate this effect on my whole army...

that would look AWESOME Twisted Evil You don't see many white DE armies shaded with a cool color. This looks damned nice.

looks great, though i feel like she's very washed out by the amount of very light colors.

Hey, congrats on the win! That is truly a beautiful piece of painting. Can't wait for your next offerings in that white scheme! Twisted Evil
