Neat. The support weapons kit even has a plausible multimelta.
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.
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.
>"their GW helmets are ugly"
>not liking sallets
What's wrong with you?
Forget the fact they're female, these heads are just plain better than GW's
i see your plastic and raise you resin
My only complaint with the sisters helmets is that they don't look enough like Sallets.
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.
>Just wait for a Raging Heroes kickstarter
It's mentioned in the first post of the first page in OP's link.
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.
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.
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.
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
I have some of the base models from Dreamforge, I'll toss one together with a SM power pack.
I've sister backpacks as well I'll try on with it too.
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.
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.
This helm is kinda similar to the SoB helm if you stick some greenstuff in the mouth hole.
Now we need some Sister Repentia plastics.
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?
We introduced my wife to her first game of d&d last year. She wanted a strong heroine barbarian, but when I asked what her inspiration would be for it art-wise?
She showed me pic related.
I was so turned on.
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.
Where'd you get sister backpacks?
>a girl in yoga pants
>a boltgun that's bigger than her torso
>see how she grips it - one-handed! - to be able to reach the trigger
>this is derp beyond the merely grim
[/k/ autism intensifies]
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
>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.
That's the power of power armour.
>a boltgun that's bigger than her torso
Bolters aren't small.
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.
>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.
Obviously she's using a custom grip. Duh!
I have so much put into my SOB army i am beyond the point of caring about plastic sisters.
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.
