I painted my first Shepherd to have a bright red cape lining.
I came to greatly value the Shepherd’s presence on the battlefield, both in healing a much needed beast and managing fury. I don’t think there’s a better one-point option for Legion. I wanted another, so two years later I converted a second Shepherd.
To distinguish her from the original sculpt I wanted to remove her hood and make her hold the weapon in both hands. I gave her Saeryn’s head and Cylena Raefyll’s arms which I modified to hold the scythe instead of her sword.
This conversion looks simple but was actually surprisingly fiddly. First I had to remove the head, arms and a substantial part of the cloak to go with them. Cylena’s arms end halfway up the bicep so I pinned them into position and sculpted back in the rest. Getting them into the correct position was very tricky because I had to gauge the correct arm length and ensure that the angles matched up so that the haft would sit correctly in both hands. I resculpted the top part of the cloak and added a hood from Eiryss3.
Here they are, side by side for comparison:
