After an amazing (but tiring) weekend at Knavecon the other week, I had a mini-break from hobbying to catch up with real life and the family. I'll get round to some Knavecon coverage in due course, but for now you can check out the coverage of our RT game, the Dorty Double Dozen, and the Frostgrave fun elsewhere.
For my most recent painting session, I wasn't feeling the love for any of the figures sat ready. So I rummaged around in my boxes of random figures, and pulled out an old Citi-Def figure from Citadel's Judge Dredd range. Something about the figure appealed, and I knew the paint job would be quick and easy.
Two hours later, this was the result:
Until I painted the figure, I never realised that 'he' was actually a 'she' - the small stature, almond eyes and feminine chin give it away. She got a utilitarian and neutral colour scheme, with off-white tunic, grey trousers and light brown boots - fitting for a figure that will see use as an armed civilian, or possibly a hench-woman.
The only concession to colour or decoration is her helmet which has a simple broad stripe, then a couple of coats of gloss varnish.

I thoroughly enjoyed painting her up, which surprised me. There's clearly some satisfaction to be had in painting a simple figure quickly!
