Unboxing Raging Heroes - Sister Ardanna, Pillar of the Faith

Following on from their first successful 'Toughest Girls of the Galaxy' Kickstarter Raging Heroes launched a second one called TGG2: Light and Darkness in order to create three new female armies: Dark Elves, Lust Elves, and Sisters of Mercy, in both Fantasy and Sci-Fi versions.

Over the next few weeks I'll be doing some unboxing and review features on some of the models that I acquired. Also as I acquired these models via the Kickstarter rather than through retail they came in bags rather than in a box.

Now we'll give Sister Ardanna, Pillar of the Faith a look...

Sister Ardanna, Pillar of the Faith
Sister Ardanna - Unassembled
Here's pictures of both sides of the unassembled model parts.

A Brief Note About Resin Models.
Also it's worth noting that many resin models have a slightly greasy feel caused by the substance they use to stop them sticking to the moulds during production and this can cause issues with glue not taking effect and paint not sticking to the model properly and in my experience Raging Heroes miniatures seem to have a lot of this release agent. Carefully washing the parts in soapy water will remove this should your model be unduly affected. Parts that are bent (or that aren't and you want to be) can be corrected by heating up slightly in warm water and then bending into the required configuration.

Sister Ardanna - Assembled
The main body of this model is in two substantial but separate pieces and requires a few other bits and pieces attaching as well. The right leg and statue piece attach to the main body as does a ornamental backpack, two hands, the sword and a couple of guns. 

The hands are a bit fiddly as they have to be aligned so as to lean on the top of the sword pommel. Once aligned I had a bit of trouble with the sword blade which ended up looking a bit bent though this was due to my own positioning of the blade rather than due to any fault of the model. I also refrained from attaching the pair of guns provided as I'm not quite sure yet what I'm going to use her for...

Sister Ardanna - Extras
Here's a look at some artwork and renders from the Kickstarter process that may interest you all.

Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome.
