The Mortans in Godslayer are styled after the Romans of our world and have a fascination with death and the undead, hence the rather unhealthy look to the Domina Mortis here.
I like the overall theme of the miniature with the focus twisted towards a skeletal deity dressed in her rotting clothes and wearing what I would assume is a glittering death mask. It would be neat, when painting the model, to have the model looking like it had just come out from the grave, but keep that death mask pristine.
The one thing I don’t like about the model is the rather dinky axe head she has on that weapon clutched in her right hand. While I’m sure it looks like that for a reason, it would have been neat to see it maybe double the size just to give it more weight and significance. At present, it looks tacked on as an afterthought.
What do you think?
