"Lux in Tenebris
 
Here stands before you the mightiest of the Valkyrie, the one who watches over the balance between Light and Darkness, the Emissiary of Chaos. Her name is Altheona, the Twilight Valkyrie
 
A noble warrior, versed in the arts of chaos, and capable of unleashing tremendous power to vanquish her foes, and restore the balance between the Light and Darkness when under threat.

Armed with an arsenal of mystical weapons forged with the very essence of those powers, Altheona is a skillful combatant when the need arises. She can summon the weapons and fluidly transition between their combinations for maximum effect. Her Seraphic Spear and Shield of Virtue are her primary response to the minions of darkness. She can also call upon the shadows to bring forth her Hellforged Mace and Demonic Shield to eliminate transgressors who serve the Light."

How overdue is this though!
 
For those of you who have been following me, you will have seen WIP's of this for several months. At some point I was done with it and I figured you guys might want to see it. So without further ado, here's a preview of my most perfect WIP to date: the Twilight Valkyrie!
 
I took a whole lot of (subconscious) inspiration from chaos-themed Yu-Gi-Oh! monsters, such as Black Luster Soldier - Envoy of the Beginning,  BLS - Envoy of the Evening TwilightTethys, Goddess of Light, and several others. 
 
I have always been fascinated with the concept of perfect asymmetry, that splits a being completely between light and darkness, or any other similarly conflicting powers or phenomena. I have attempted several such MOC's in the past, such as Darklight Paladin, and Draxx, Return of the Magnetomenace. I have also created an LDD collab with TheOneVeyronian depicting this concept as a chess game.
 
So there you have it! I hope you guys have enjoyed looking at this MOC, thanks in advance for likes/comments, and Happy Holidays!

She's big, I'm not fond of the general shape of the leg's, and the exposed thinner part of the lower arms  but with a model of this size and detail I'm not so sure what could be done to improve this.

 

Well done on building this big!

The legs were a bit tricky to pull off, and tbh I'm not even that huge a fan of how they look. But I was adamant on using one of my previous ideas to build the back of them, so I chose to sacrifice the overall appearance in favor of technique. It also causes minor stability problems, but she's on a stand so...meh.

 

With respect to the exposed part of the lower arms, now that I really couldn't do much about. I opted in for this solution as I felt nothing else quite worked to give the impression of bare upper arms/elbows. 

 

Anyway, thanks for your input! Glad you liked it overall!

In my experience, it's hard to make an MoC of that size without it becoming an absolute mess of pieces, but you've done a pretty good job with it anyways.  You got a lot of mileage out of the half-and-half concept, especially with the weapon designs.

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)
