It was a Harbinger kind of Friday!

First let me start out by saying that Bob, my husband, nearly threw this out the window.  The only thing that stopped him was the thought of a broken window.  This model is horrible to put together.  I like to remind him that this is a hobby and that is why some models are overly complicated.  This one in particular is a trial of patience and more complicated than necessary.  Sadly, though I dislike plastics, it should have been done in plastic and not in metal.

Bob sprayed her with Bone Shadow (Reaper Master Series) with the airbrush.

Then she received a pseudo-Dallimore of Polished Bone (RMS) and a highlight of Stencil (Panzer Aces).  She was then washed with a solution of Stencil and water.  Remember, the watered down solution of the Stencil will run into the creases and soften the darker spots of the Bone Shadow.

Her metals are Burnished Gold and skin is Gold Shadow (RMS), pseudo-Dallimore of Golden Highlight and will be washed with Ogryn Flesh.

Like I said, she came in multiple pieces, to assemble all of it at once would have made it nearly impossible to paint so these are the parts left off, painted and will be assembled in the end.
The gold has been washed with Ogryn Flesh and so has her skin.

The cloaks/robes of the followers or attendants are done in Burgundy Wine (RMS), dry-brushed in Red (Model Color), dry-brushed in Red Violet (RMS).  Their hand bandages along with her stockings are Bone Shadow and highlighted in Polished Bone with a wash of Badab Black.

The person that ordered this wanted the insides of the sword to look as if there is fire within.  As you can see there is a little bit of red applied with orange and yellow to make it look fiery.

Her lips are done in a light blush color and washed in Ogryn Flesh.  Hair in Ocher (CV) and highlighted in Ocher 11.

I'm still not done with the painting but I think you see where I'm going with it.  Eventually I'll post the remaining images as it is finished.
