Neat. The support weapons kit even has a plausible multimelta.
>>
>>37952157
I want to know what they look like with GW backpacks.
>>
Could work, you'll get a ton of people screaming about no armored corsets, but honestly I like the bulky look. The helmets are damn nice too.
>>
>>37952312
Armored corsets are shit, the thing I always liked about sisters was their robes. That and I think the Shield of Faith rule is a convenient excuse to have them running around without helmets on, because their GW helmets are ugly. Who needs helmets when you have a halo.

These models are lacking in the robed look, they have a tabard of sorts. The helmets are nice, though.
>>
>>37952157
God damn those sister models look good
I was looking at making an SoB army, but the models all looked horrible, aside from the helmeted ones. The proportions just looked off
>>
>>37952157
how visible are those weird printing lines on the models?
>>
Not an awful alternative, but I'd like to see a size comparison of them next to marines and SoB models.
>>
Oh shit, the assault trooper variants look sweet.

wow, they look like real women and not guys in drag
>>
>>37952616

>5 dudes
>16 bucks

Heck that's hella cheap and they kinda look like Grey Knights
>>
>>37952606
Judging by the size of the combi melta in OP's pic, I'd wager that they're less bulky than a standard space marine and more bulky than a standard battle sister. Looks like a good middle ground.

They won't easily fit the Statuesque pony tails, though. I have a few on my Guard.
>>
>>37952157
Damn, that hair bothers me. I fucking love sisters haircut.
>>
>>37952606
They're thinner and taller. Will look a little out of place next to 40k models.

Forget the fact they're female, these heads are just plain better than GW's

That line looks too much like knockoffs designed to be more about pinup, and there's too much shit on the models to where you cannot really rework them to no look horribly out of place with other models.

Just wait for the Raging Heroes SoB kickstarter, dumbasses.

Those models will be the best sci-fi battle nuns you will ever get. Even better than any potential plastic GW SoB or resin FW SoS, or any dumb conversion you can make.

The only way you will ever get a cooler, sexier army than a Raging Heroes SoB army is if you used Kingdom Death conversions or some crazy 100% sculpted army.

That kickstarter probably won't deliver for another couple years.

Still less time than it has taken GW to update Sisters.
>>
>>37958080

It's mentioned in the first post of the first page in OP's link.

>>37957654

Among GW's most dated models, people aren't retarded for hesitating to collect them as an army. I don't think power armor corsets and sallet helmets define what makes the SoB interesting.

What concerns me is, what design aesthetics will be kept if GW decides to release plastic kits for them? I'm personally hoping for a plastic kit like the Tempestus Scions have, huge selection of customizable details and wargear.
>>
>>37958188
oh, I'm retarded, sorry
>>
>>37958188
>I don't think power armor corsets and sallet helmets

Hell yes it does, SoB are hyperfuture space roman catholic nuns, not girl marines in jin-roh reject armour

>>37958295
They're 80s heavy metal dominatrix nuns.
>>
>>37958312
Maybe in that one codex cover, but the models and all recent art completely drops the metal and most of the dom elements
>>
>>37958295
How many nuns have you met that wear corsets over their robes?

That said, I wouldn't be happy if sisters went to battle wearing burkas. Maybe the corsets work because it's 40k and it isn't supposed to be reasonable.
>>
>>37952157
Not bad. Though I think they lose too much of the churchly, ornamental look of the original SoB armour. The SoBs are meant to be the elite troops of a rich, and bombastic organisation, so they should look the part. This is a bit too generic and plain.
>>
>>37952157
Sweet.
If I didn't already have an army of recasts, this might've been cool.
>>
They're not bad models, but they don't look anything like Sisters at all. They're more like knockoff Grey Knights.
>>
>>37952157
I like the default helm and the hair, but I'm also curious if someplace stocks sallet helmet heads and bob cut girl heads that would fit.

I like diversity ok
>>
>>37952305
Pardon my newfag but what's a GW backpack?
>>
>>37959523
Games Workshop backpack - the backpacks from the actual Sisters models.
>>
is it wrong that I sort of want to try the smaller rt era marine backpack on a sister
>>
>>37959585
Oh, this?
Do they make plastic versions of that? Or does anyone actually?
>>
>>37959816
Fuck

>>37958488
I like the corset power armour.

One of DH players wanted to play a Sister of Battle because of the corset power armour.

She was like; "I can look like a righteous dominatrix while preaching religious nonsens in high heels and a flaming sword of fire."
The idea of this clear female figure bringing terror and hope to the common folk really made her dig the Sisters.

Sisters should have a slim and more fitting power armour, part of their existence is because they are women and we wouldn't like anyone confusing that. After all we are abusing a loophole
>>
>>37952305
I have some of the base models from Dreamforge, I'll toss one together with a SM power pack.

>>37959585
I've sister backpacks as well I'll try on with it too.

>>37959816
Yes, I think the only plastic sister at current is the Immolator kit, but I believe it comes with a plastic power pack.

BRB with a picture anons.
>>
>>37959898
First off I happened to find an issue with this idea, I've got the Eisenkern Stormtroopers, the OP's pic and article are built out of the Eisenkern Valkir kit.

I'll still toss two together since I've already started.

The Sisters of Eternal Mercy could be good proxies for Uriah Jacobus rules and Sister of Celestine, any word on when those are supposed to come out?

I didn't even comment on the sculpt quality, you twit. I'd agree with you that they have a higher skill level displayed on them.

More importantly, it does not make my earlier comments inaccurate.

Well slapdashed two together, left one is sister power pack and then Dreamfordge head/arms/gun right is IG head, SM powerpack/arms/gun.

The other kits, the Valkir are a bit beefier in the legs and arms, also has the cloth between the legs. Not to mention their hands can hold a GW weapon without looking dwarfed.

I while looking into their Valkir models I did catch that their online store happens to have a 25% off pre-existing kits until tomorrow.
>>
>>37961574

Looks pretty solid! And I saw the 25% off but the Valkir aren't out yet or are otherwise out of stock.
>>
>>37961628
Looks like out of stock, 2 week for shipping, I'm looking at picking up a set as well as the "melta" arm for my leviathan crusader.

Yeah it may be artists error, but I'm sure it's supposed to be a boltgun.

However, I do know that fluff-wise, sororitas weapons are smaller than space marine ones.

>>37962261
Not a boltpistol. Bolters are fucking huge weapons, you know?

>>37961974
Sorry, I don't have an up to date site for them. I was buying on taobao and all of my links are dead but just doing a quick search I did find this and they have some models.

tinyurl prnprmy

>>37958312
The hyperfuture is all 80s heavy metal.
>>
>>37960468
That face is way too dynamic and feminine to be in a GW sculpt.
>>
>>37962970
I appreciate the link, but now the prices confuse me, because 150 yaun converts to $24, and the model would normally be $15.

Also there's no basic Battle Sisters, only special models.

Also again, looking at the descriptions they seem to be a painting service?
>>
>>37963351
Huh.... I know it used to be cheaper, of course I don't think this is the same re-caster I bought from.

I know they don't have the standard sister, when I had purchased, looking back was actually a full year ago, they were selling the 12 sister pack, with 1 flamer, melta, stormbolter, and superior then 8 standard models and all of that was like 21 bucks.
>>
Are sisters even playable as of 7e?
When were they even last usable? Thought they had outdated as fuck rules or something.
>>
>>37964122
They got a E-dex only as of 6th ed. It's not that great.

If all of the nuns share surnames, then they are likely sisters.

>>37959253
Statuesque Miniatures (the ones mentioned in the OP) have bob haircut heads, the YorkNecromancer guy just didn't use them. They're metal so heads up.
>>
>>37966444
>heads up
>>
>>37961574
Thanks, man. Some Marine backpacks with maybe the bottom vents cut off and mounted on the valkirs might work.

Speaking off, how do the models look without their own backpacks? Are the back good enough to pass as just armour or is the backpack a must? One thing I'd be interested making from the valkir could be some Solar Auxilia, but I want a different (or no) backpack.
>>
>>37962146
>to be able to reach the trigger

Wat? You do realize Sisters use bolters all the time. Would be a pretty shitty weapon if they couldn't reach the trigger of their standard weapon.

>one-handed!

That's the power of power armour.

>a boltgun that's bigger than her torso

Bolters aren't small.
>>
>>37968227
this. ^
>>
>>37968227
If it allows her to be on par with a space marine in strength why isn't it as big as space marine armor?
>>
>>37968534

Because inside the armour isn't a genetically modified transhuman superman with two hearts, acid spit, an extra lung and all the rest of that.

Sisters Power Armour has the same protection and strength as Marine Armour, but the being inside is just a normal human women, not a super soldier.
>>
>>37968587
But marine armor has been proven to add bulk to the marine. Why is there no bulk on a sister?
>>
>>37968697

They cut, check out Repentias
>>
>>37968534
>on par with a space marine in strength

You don't need to be a Marine strength to one-hand a bolter, retard. Yarrick has a storm bolter he fires one handed and all his has is a small anti-grav unit to make the thing lighter. Surely some powered servos and synthetic muscle fibers can give you the same effect.

>why isn't it as big as space marine armor

Because Sisters are not hulking slabs of meat and because Sister armour lacks all the environmental protection, fancy systems, etc.

I would buy some sure. and use them for celestians.

now a plastic repressor i could go for... but mostly i just want rules that dont suck.
>>
>>37969464
Any proper Sisters release would have to include a bunch of entirely brand new units that don't exist yet to flesh out the army.
