Reposing Sloan

I have been meaning to repose Kara Sloan for a while now, but like most wargamers I have far to many active projects. And reposing a model is a little intimidating for me if I'm honest, I don't have a lot of experience with green stuff.

A fellow Cygnar blogger Vomkrieg recently did a post about his Kara it gave me the inspiration to get mine done. His post can be found here

I wanted to use as much of her original arms as possible as I'm not great with green stuff and wanted to keep as much detail as I could.

I doubted I could pose her so she was looking down the rifle in a realistic way so I opted for a "just fired" look.

I started by bending her arms forward and the right arm (her right) inwards as well.

I filled down the area on her hip where the left fist used to rest.

Left hand I used a pin to give a guide to where her arm would go

 I messed up with her right arm drilling too far through...
I would have to fix that later

On the back of the elbow you can see the pin sticking out...

Final pose ready for green stuff!

 I filled in the gap after the right glove area.

Sculpted a hand with fingers gripping the underside of the rifle

Covered the pin to make the left forearm. I tried my best to make it look like it has an armour plate on it.

Fiddly bit! made a thumb for realism...

The gap filled on the right arm

I added a round armour patch on her elbow to cover up my goof earlier!
Back view because of reasons!!!

And she's done! Now I just need to paint her... yeah that could be a while based on my painting speeds.

I hope this repose was helpful, and didn't drag on too long. Let me know what you thought of it!
