Im quite proud of how she turned out. The torso is mostly the result of wanting to build something around a slizer head and ended up shaping similar to a mata torso (in the waist and shoulders) by coinsidence.
The colour scheme isn’t exactly what i had planned either. Alas Im still (after nearly 2 months) waiting on those bricklink orders. Overall Id say she has benefited from the tweaks made as a result of the delay.




(not the best back pic but I’ve redone these photos thrice already.)
The mace design was borrowed from a Turaga I built a couple years ago while the Tower shield was a stroke of inspiration while scrounging around in my parts drawers. Honestly Im not a fan of the multi-layer silver shields a lot of my competitors have used.

The heartlight is a cool touch!

I like the clean colour scheme and size, I agree with your statement about the silver shields-they look messy.

Thanks guys . I’m taking these contests as more building challenge than anything. Never actually entered anything like this before, so its really encouraging to hear my first foray is well received. :blush:
