Nun with gun

Surprisingly enough I feel like I'm doing quite well painting wise this challenge. It's just the photographing and editing which seems to take ages, if I can be arsed to do it at all that is.
As I want to take advantage of a ride with Lady Sarah's Balloon to Snow Lord's Peak I needed a 'female' miniature of some kind. Luckily enough there was one in a recent order from Wargames Foundry...

You will notice this particular 'nun' has rather masculine features. An excellent fit for my purposes though as I intend to use this nun as a marker for the German "Nuns with guns" Shabby Nazi Trick in the Blitzkrieg 1940 handbook for Chain of Command.
And honestly, even if the catholic church acts as if they're still stuck in the 13th century, we're living in the 21st century, right? So maybe this 'lady' is just a little undecided as to her gender? Who am I to decide that she is a he or vice versa?

Now with all the gender kibosh out of the way I can finally reward myself with something bubbly... and very tasty ;-) You won't see me drinking champagne or similar stuff, so I hope my humble local tipple is enough to fit the criteria. Cheers!

So without further ado it's on to Snow Lord's Peak with an additional 40 points towards my tally, which should be enough to balloon (see what I did there) me over my initial target of 300 points.


  1. Bah, I've never trusted those talking penguins...

  2. Ominous looking "nun" - possibly having a bad habit :( sorry, couldn't help myself.

  3. Very nice paint job as usual and what could be a very useful piece in our games.


  4. Nice addition to the collection and well deserved beer! :)

    Could you do a photography and photo editing 'tutorial' ? That would be really appreciated, love how the colours of your miniatures look in photography

  5. Brilliantly done Nick and has given me an idea for another loot pile, after all the Hills are alive with the sound of music.

  6. This is superb work Moiterei. You know what? You can even use her in a horror setting. Think about it :)
