Imettäjä, the first character I drew and designed for the Pilgrym project is finally put together and well on her way to get painted. But before that let me share some photos and my thoughts of her appeareance.
I had pretty clear vision of the bits I would use on forming her portrait. For the head I wanted to use Necromancer’s head since it looks very old, ugly and can easily be turned to look like a face of a hag. Thanks to Adam Wier of Between the Bolter and Me for sending me this particular bit!
For her upper body I used Crypt Ghoul torso and arms. Those parts give her the much needed slimness and also a heinous form that is present in her drawing. The reversed robe of the Tech Priest, which seems to be becoming a new trend for that particular fine piece, finalizes the wicked presence of the Imettäjä, making her look the bitch she is.
I first thought of not giving her the floating anti-grav platform, but after a small feedback round from fellow hobbyists I thought she’d be much more interesting character with the thing.
There are dozens of cables hanging from her dress which I like to believe are unplugged tubes for the bottles she keeps around her and under her dress. She might even have a small milking factory running under her dress.
Summa summarum, I’m very pleased with the way she looks at this point. I must admit, these two character are the best duo I’ve done so far. Much thanks for the effort goes to the wonderful Pilgrym project that is pushing so many talented persons to do their best for to make this scenario a memorable happening. Huzzaah!
