These ladies are both Raging Heroes: Kapitan Ivanka Kurganova. She comes with a nifty gas mask that can be used to make her a touch more sinister. She also comes with a huge daft sword if you want to replace the lovely sabre. Mercifully the client wanted the smaller weapons! The brief was to paint one as a commissar and the other as an army officer in a bodyglove. Along with the gas mask it makes an intersting NBC suited look.
The Commissar - I'm guessing working on the carrot rather than the stick approach - was painted to fit with the Death Korps with green details. The details on the back of the coat were painted with the quick non-metallic gold method I developed for the Imperial Agents flag. This model is an example of where most of the colours are within a tone or so of each other and so need something else to lift them. In order to do this I chose elements of the model - corset, gloves, boots, cap brim - to recieve a satin varnish coat and thus distinguish them from the matt cloth.
By contrast, everything on the Army officer is matt. I is actually an interesting demonstration of just how different a paint scheme can make a model look. I used the same colours as I had on the DKK models with a splash of English Uniform for the corset and skirt. The khaki coat had the moulded details painted muted grey to further distinguish the two models.
With not a lot more to say about these ladies I shall bid you all adieu.
