Shard is the first mini I have ever owned and painted- I was so nervous to screw it up when gluing her together let alone when I got to painting her!
When she arrived, her hands and hair had already snapped off from the metal bar (I wont lie, I panicked and thought it broke!) but they has come off cleanly without extra stuff on the nubs. Her feet was hanging on by a thread essentially to that bar. Snipped off easily enough, and really didn't have to clean anything up besides a little snag on her cloak- didn't even see any seams. Gave her a quick wash, light prime, and dove into painting.
(I will say I'm bad at gluing so I ran into trouble with her pony tail and her cloak, but I'm positive it was partially inexperience and the glue I was using that made it frustrating)
She is insanely detailed, and when you first get her its hard to make them out in her shiny glory, but if you do a wash like displayed, holy moly do they pop!
For me, I wanted to try painting her the same way her statue is, slightly worried that she would get lost in the dark colors COTD runs, but she doesn't thanks to the way her cloak wraps around her and pose is open enough that light hits so nicely.
She is small but a mighty addition to a COTD collection, or even a start of one!
(My shelf space thanks you)
