Kommander Malinka Kurganova

The busy chaps at Raging Heroes have very skillfully identified my weak-spot and supplied models to match. Therefore, on a cold winters night I gave into temptation and dived head-long into the Kurganova limited edition box set, despite the fact that I have no possible army I could use them in! I was just far too tempted by the sight of such beautiful figures.
I assembled them over Christmas and have now finished painting the first of the three girls. Kommander Malinka is a fine young lady and was quite a pleasure to paint.

The details on the master are all there, but they are cast on in quite a low profile. It is very important to be very careful to apply only the thinnest of undercoats. I was not quite so careful, so struggled with some of the detailing. 

I opted to go with a dark purple coat because I thought this would accentuate the gold picture and writing. I couldn't resist giving her white PVC boots. The features on the model are very well crafted and I would strongly recommend the models. Please forgive the lighting, I managed to blow up my lamp before the photos were taken.

Click on the photos to make them larger, but try not to look too close, some for the detailed painting looks a little ropey....
