so I found an old box of sisters for £20 whilst in Norfolk and I couldn’t resist buying them and starting a new army but every thing costs so much (even by GW standards) so is there any way to get them a bit cheaper as I really don’t want to pay £140ish on 2 more units with tanks and a tank for the current unit.

by this I mean are there any good websites to buy from or even cost effective conversions that I could make?

on a completely unrelated note, does resin set well inside that instimold stuff

To answer your questions...

Overall the answer is No, the cheapest way to buy them is to buy them used, but even then people seem to be selling them really high with the new mini codex. Sister's of the Flame from Privateer Press look good in a Sister's unit but they cost alot more then the GW stuff.

Any of the reseller websites should still provide 20% off on these things.

The easiest stuff to use in instimold is greenstuff. I also wouldn't recommend trying to cast entire models with it as you'll loose alot of details.

When I see someone talking about alternative SOB i compare them heavily to DKoK... Useing anything but the GW or FW models is just going to look silly.

they are very very pricey, tho buying second hand you will save a little bit of money.

been watching as many units as i can for a few moths now and i have seldom seen a listing gone unbid on.

Just working on a new version of the WD codex with much of the stuff I feel they missed out Done the first 15 pages.

"Unimaginably ancient xenos artefact somewhere on the planet, hive fleet poised above our heads, hidden 'stealer broods making an early start....and now a bloody Chaos cult crawling out of the woodwork just in case we were bored. Welcome to my world, Ciaphas."

"I will admit that some Primachs like Russ or Horus could have a chance against an unarmed 12 year old novice but, a full Battle Sister??!! One to one? In close combat? Perhaps three Primarchs fighting together... but just one Primarch?" da001
