Dark Sword Miniatures Limited Edition (399 castings) Female Anti-paladin


When I first saw this one I thought it was a really cool sculpt, but after I got it I not as excited about it.  She had a fine mold line all the way around her that was difficult to get off without messing up the fine detail.  Did the best I could, but I'm sure I'll find some that I missed while painting.  Don't know if I'll finish her in time to enter the contest at Cool Mini OR Not, which is, by the way, where I purchased her.

I always cringe when I open the mailbox and find my minis shipped this way.  The post office always seems to damage them.

Here's the blister pack, and yes, it had been squashed.

Package damage.

Package damage.

This is was you get inside the package.  Fortunately, the only damage was a bent base.

Bent at the base.  I was able to bend her back without breaking anything.

Front shot, ready for paint.  Had a devil of a time getting the arms glued on, but they finally stuck.

Rear shot, ready for paint.
