Ever opened a copy of one of the realm of chaos books when you were ten? Ever tried to own each and everyone of the Jes Goodwin chaos champion? Ever spent days lurking on ebay for a complete Kaleb Dark or chaos toilets?
You're at home here.
That's 5 out of 6 now ! The new model for the coming Colony87 range by Jon/Axiom is a priestess, We've explored many types of characters so far so after those who work and those who study, here are those who pray (we already have plenty of those who fight).

Priestesses are a concept we find in plenty of iconic sci-fi settings, think about the Bene-Gesserit in Dune or the Shabda-Ouds in the Metabarons, they're a sort of equivalent of the sorceress of fantasy but with a cosmic dimension !
Painting wise, I've tried to opt for something simple and pure with complementary colours. I'm a little puzzled by how the purple looks on the robe to be honest, the photo doesn't help much but although I tried to lift it with glazes, it hasn't reached the vibrance I wanted... Maybe I'll try some inks...
The cat is orange because I thought it would look good with the purple and because it shows it's an alien species.
So that's only one model left to finish that range (how often can one claim to have painted a whole range of anything ?) and with the remaining 3 of the first wave left to do I can aim at having a whole brand painted (how cool would that be)
So here it is, I hop you'll enjoy her and her companions, I'm eager to get them all done to paint some fantasy for a bit of fresh air and then... and then I'll have some more models for people I like ;)
