Tomorrow night is the first game of our new Necromunda campaign set in the settlement of White Spider Junction. As mentioned a few weeks back, I'll be using my Brat gang, counting as House Escher.
I had intended to use Beau Rouge (the unreleased Brat leader) as my leader for this campaign, but eventually decided that his combat orientated weaponry meant he was better suited as a champion. With Beau duly demoted, I needed to make a new leader with a bit more role flexibility - that's where Visage comes in!
Visage has come to usurp Beau Rogue as the prima donna of the Sutter Dukes. Known as the Duchess of the Sutters, she is at the forefront of fashion, with teaming ribbons and silks, and accompanied by her miniscule caryatid Wailer-of-Things.
Like her fellow Brats, Visage is clad in gaudy jade and white, with splashes of pink and orange.
I made Visage from the Citadel limited edition LE15 Kinky Chaosette. I removed both arms at the elbow, replacing the right with a Sisters of Silence bolter arm, and the left with an Escher stiletto sword. I sculpted some sleeve details on the upper arms to hide the cut marks.
Visage's jacket was made from a piece from an Adeptus Mechanicus skitarii coat, which I blended into her back with more greenstuff.
As for her little caryatid - I sculpted him almost entirely from greenstuff. The wings were sculpted over a small piece of shaped plasticard to add some structure. Believe me, sculpting that teeny face was a really frustrating process (I lost several tiny balls of greenstuff trying to make his eyes!). I think it came out OK in the end!
All in all, I'm very pleased with the result - she is clearly higher ranking than her gang-mates and looks suitably imposing and eye-catching!
