Raging Heroes: Kapitan Ivanka Kurganova

This is a small side-commission that I was asked to do at short notice, but it's from a nice model line that I've wanted to paint for a while.

Despite the somewhat comedic name, Ivanka is a very detailed model. The styling is very 40k, although note the dimensions and proportions are not quite: the model line is quite slight, but with ludicrous-sized weapons. The sword is a case in point - but the figure does come with an alternative weapon which is a bit more realistic.

She also comes with a nice gas mask face - this piece could actually be used in a Steel Legion or Death Korp of Krieg army, where her height and proportions would probably be a bit more in-keeping with the rest of the army.

Here's a close-up of the detail on the model. I chose to paint a lightning effect on the sword, and finished that with a layer of gloss varnish. This protects the blade (which might chip easily) as well as making the blade look more dangerous!

The model wears a nicely detailed coat as well, with a heraldic icon the the back. There are still a couple of things I need to do to finish this, actually; I only seem to notice errors after a take photos...!

This piece would make an ideal commissar or perhaps an officer in the right Imperial Guard army!

I'd definitely buy more Raging Heroes miniatures, and look forward to their Kickstarter.
