Canoness (Order of Our Martyred Lady) - Warhammer 40k




Ok, so enough of the fluffy Effie Trinket. I am much happier with armour and weapons!!
This is my first attempt at EVA armour, so bear with me! It may take a while!


I really like the the draped nuns headdress and cyborg eye!

FOR THE EMPEROR! Although those googly eyes that you are using for rivets make this look more like something from the Chaos legions at the moment ;)

I know what you mean - I think they look too heavy!

The finished costume looks awesome. I’ll definitely be looking out for this at MCM.

Oh my word! This is AMAZING! Fantastic work on the costume, and you really look the part. Loving the ridiculously over-sized boltgun :D

Breast Plate

I couldn't be bothered to construct a breast plate from scratch, so I came up with this ides. I found some 'seconds' WMA chest guards on ebay - less than a fiver - bargain , and covered them in thinner foam. I changed the straps to black so they don't show.

I really didn't need a sword but couldn't resist making one for fun!

Really getting there now!

Purity seals

I made these by printing on to parchment paper and then adding a thin coat of varnish - the varnish soaks in and seals the paper making it waterproof, and it doesn't tear!

23rd June 2014

Cyborg Eye

This is unpainted but you get the general idea - it wont be pink, it will look metallic! Then held on with elastic under my cowl.

23rd June 2014

Boot covers

The boot covers are removable, held on with 1" elastic (I like my Rocket Dogs!)

Decoration for vambraces

Decided to do different symbols on each vambrace

14th June 2014

First Vambrace

I was so impressed how easy it was to work with EVA.
I used 8mm googly eyes to make 'rivets' and to make a knurled edge, I used some thin foam rod cut in half.
The foam has been blackened to seal the surface to make it better for the paint to stick
