Sisters of Battle (Part 1)

So the plan is to have 1500pts of Sisters of Battle ready for this years UK GT, bit of a change for me - I've neither used Power Armoured troops competatively before, nor played a short ranged mechanised type army before, looking forward too it though!

Roughly speaking my list will initially consist of a Eviscerator & Jump Pack equipped Canoness who'll join a 8 strong Sepharim unit with Eviscerator armed Sister Superior and two Duel Hand Flamers. The rest of the list will consist of two 10 strong Celestian units with Heavy Flamers and Flamers in Rhinos, two 10 strong Battle Sister units with Heavy Flamers and Meltaguns in Rhinos and a pair of Exorcists. Subject to change once I get playing with em. First I've gota build the force though!

I've almost got everything I need now, just an ebay auction away of a last half dozen sisters with the last Rhino in the post now, I've made a start on what I've got with the Sisters being stripped at the moment I'll get on with them soon as they're finished.

For now I'm working on the Canoness and Sepharim Sister Superior, the only two major conversions, I went through a few ideas for the Eviscerators but have settled on combining two IG Chainswords.

Sister Superior


The vehicles are nearly all assembled, I'm using a combination of Immolator and Space Marine Whirlwind launchers for my Exorcist's as I'm not overly fond of either the GW or FW versions of the model. Just assembling the launchers themselves at the moment.

The Sepharim are now all initially based, some work left to do to them, a few extra bits of ruin, and texturing then I'll maybe start painting... maybe!

This is all happening between working on the Praetorian sculpts, which is mainly focused on faces at the moment, trying to get a result there I'm happy with, not easy though! I've got another set of Lasgun Arms on the go now, with the aiming pose being tidied, I'll get some pictures of those up soon.

Oooh, i like your ideas with the flying poses, launching of the side of rubble and so on. I'll be filing these methods away for future use!

Thankyou, seemed like an easy way to avoid having the normal tabs or having exposed wire, some have worked out better then others though I think.
