When I set out to make miniatures of my favorite Mass Effect characters, the goal was to just do a few that I really like, and would be interested in using in very low model count skirmish games. After finding Gotthammer's models over at Collegia Titanica, a secondary goal of not copying him too closely arose. In fact, of my first three models, I planned on using two different sculpts (that's not how it worked out, but I'll get to that in another post).
Gotthammer's version is an Odalisque with pretty extensive conversion. While his looks superb, I am in no way capable of that level of work, nor do I want to spend that kind of time on it.
With this figure, I have a mask that should work with minimal fuss (you all know I'm not much of a perfectionist). Things I plan on adding include greenstuffing a hood and kama/waist skirt thing. I was also thinking of adding a little material to the calves to simulate Tali's odd birdlike stance. The ponytail, of course, must go. In terms of painting, I am going to use Tali's simpler, black "space suit" alt costume from Mass Effect 3.
