@Kosake:
Its the arms that gave me troubles on the repentia.(And still do)
The body itself looks okay, I'd say. But its just so hard to get a decent shot due to her more dynamic pose.


@Imperial Templari
I have never tried scales smaller than 28. And I probably better not start it. Knowing myself I'd try such fiddly details that even my hobby knife would be to thick to do them ... Sculpting skulls and feur de lys on boob-plates is hard enough in 28 mm. It would require ages forme to just finish one model.

Here's a quick update on my bad photo lighting skills. Oh and a model is in there too. As you can see the shoulders are present and the legs and torso are joined. I also decided to sculpt the tabards onto the legs. I loose a bit of posability that way, but I can create more dynamic tabards and it is a lot easier to sculpt them. Casing the running legs will also be easier if I can fill in the area between the legs. Now I need a few more torsos, heads and arms and decorate them. Oh and I need to amp up my photo skills to actually show them in good light ...

And I have to fix up all the legs. What do you guys think?

Very nice indeed! I think the inside right thigh is a little too flat, and perhaps a little bit of detailing on the outside thigh wouldn't go amiss. But, extraordinary work!

Well the tabard is still missing. It will add a bit of additional detail. And I plan on adding further stuff onto the hip and leg, like pouches, belts and relics/badges.

I made a lot of progress on my sororitas and some of the legs are nearly finished. But I currently have no access to the camera so I can take pictures only next week.

But I'd like to you your oppinion on the weapons for my heavy armored sisters. I like the idea of arming them with heavy weapons. But the question came up again what to put in their left hand. A melee weapon or a different ranged one? I like to stay in the theme of bolter, flamer, melter. But what is your oppinion. This is also a question what would benefit the army as a whole the most. What would you say?

I'd say you definitely need both hands to wield a heavy weapon. I'd say maybe one tossing a grenade or something, but for the rest I'm afraid using a heavy bolter one-handed will feel a bit too anime-ish...

Well the models in question are sizewize between normal powerarmor and terminator armor. So I thought one handed could work. But maybe I should do a mockup with the parts I already have.

By the way, what are the smallest bits for multimelta, heavy bolter and heavy flamer? What's with the ones in the centurion kit? How do those scale up to regular heavy bolters?

Hey Doom.
I'm in favour of the traditional underslung heavy weapons that regular terminators have.
As for what to have in her other hand, that depends on what you want their loadout to be. iirc sob are not adverse to using any form of ccw in terms of fluff but I've never looked over their actual rules so wouldn't know what they usually have access to. Though personally my vote goes towards power sword/fist

Not sure about the centurion heavy bolters but the scout heavy bolters are fairly small.
Here's an example of one on a servitor conversion I did in the past.
Spoiler:


hope that helps.

I like the underslung weapons too.
And I didn't thought about scouts. Looking at the pictures it seems that it has rourghly the same size as the heavy bolter that comes with the chaos marine box, just a bit shorter. Maybe I can use that as a reference and build my own variant.

I'm currently working on a right arm for the heavy armored ones. I'll try and assemble a prototype.

All I would say, in seriousness, is that for SoB players it's often about melta/mm spam. Flamer/Heavy flamer is popular also, although if I understand things correctly that's taken a bit of a knock in 7th. HB are by far the least used option for Dominion loadouts, and at the end of the day, a good chunk of your target market is SoB players hankering for different sculpts and builds.

Also melta melta melta

A bit later than I wanted, but here is the next update on my progress.

I assembled one sister using blue-tac. It was rather fiddley but I think the result is looking decent. Now I need more arms and heads and maybe a few more shoulder and torso variations.



The legs for my seraphims are mostly done. I only need to make the final details and slightly adjust the hips to get a better fit with the torsos.



And finally I also added a few more details to my armored sisters.

Excellent work in here. I picked up Witch Hunters as my first army when i got back in to the hobby about 6 years ago. I've been eagerly awaiting plastic battrle sisters since then, and still GW keep me waiting...good to see someone who has the talent to do it for themselves. Keep up the good work!

Very nice Doom! Very nice indeed.
I hope all the pieces are as modular and interchangeable as you'd wanted them to be.

The torsos look like they have only a little bit of wiggle room connecting to the legs.
Are the arms and shoulder pads very positionable? they look like they come together well on the test model.

Looking forward to seeing more

The connection between torso and legs is rather inflexible. But I don't know how to do it better. There is so little room for errors and details as well. And I didn't want to change the torso armor aestetic ... That reduced the poseability even further.

I think it will mostly come down to conversions for reposition the torsos. I probably have to trim and resculpt details for largly different torso positions.

But I can't change that. My skills and tools are not high enough to create something better. I know now why GW avoided creating multipart sisters. And I don't know if we'll ever see them. Especially not as poseable as I tried to archive. We'll see.

Lovely work man, really hoping these come out so I can pick up a few before I remember I don't play 40k anymore Witch Hunters were my first love back in the day and remain so.

As to modeling/flexibility, have you tried putting the ball part of the joint on the torso instead of the legs? Do you think that would help? I don't have much experience with the sculpting side of production so I am very curious.

Not much to show from me, other than this picture. I tried a different approach on a female/ Sororita terminator style armor.
I'm not perfectly happy with it. The hips are to wide and putting arms on it it rather problematic. Also the back looks a bit uneven.
What do you think?

I'm actually liking it's design more than your original termi armour.
It feels both much more 40k and SoB in aesthetic.
You're correct about the hips being much too wide however. I'd recommend slimming down the legs a little in general.
The back doesn't look too bad and I'm sure it's nothing you can't handle touching up
Not sure if you wanted to hear it looks better considering the work you've already put into the other termi armour but that's my opinion

Keep up the good stuff

I like the second one too. The problem is that creating mltipart ones is even harder. I might have to build the whole torso and legs as one piece. And I think you are right. The upper legs could be slimmed down to get a better hip area.

The torso itself is a lot less bulky than the normal Termie one and personally I like it that way. But I could get rid of those two cables over the shoulder and bulk it up some more. This way I have more room for heads. But I like the smaller design.


I'll probably finish this one as a prototype one piece model and use it as a reference for further tests.
And I think I'll keep on working on both designs.

I like the cables though they look like they might get in the way of shoulder pads?

The problem I always have with sculpting boob plates is that I often misjudge how much larger they become after adding the details.

They looked fine in their basic shape. But I agree that they are a bit to large now. But that is what prototypes are for.

She didn't have a choice for a D Cup, she was just sculpted that way!

I really like the core design of it, but I think the general consensus of 'wide legs' is correct. But I imagine you could carve some of your fancy icons into them and kill two birds with one stone there.
