Well, you've got to get a little variety in there, Captain - that's the downside with mono-pose metals.

Good point Dysartes...and why I have made a couple of those head swaps and the two Geminae Superior are all conversions. Ironic that some of the first models for this army were the Exorcist conversions from before the model was released.

Thanks for the reply.

Cheers,

CB

That's a lovely army you have and well done conversion works with the metal. I especially like the classic immolators, the exorcists, the metal Geminae and the stormbolter canonesses.

Like LAST last? As in, no more unpainted models? Either way, this army looks great... nice work on the storm bolter conversions!

Is this last-before-SOB-rerelease-purchases, Captain, or actual last?

Looks like a Sister Superior and a line Sister to me?

Yes, last two infantry models left unpainted in my Sisters army. Thanks for the props on the conversion.

Yes, last bit in a lot I traded for...I have some that I did not want to add and they are in my Swap Shop thread.

As for the very last Sisters models...I am at a bit of a crossroads. I have a complete painted army, with pretty well every option I would want to field. That said, my vehicles are all Mark I's and I have obtained five of the newer models (Exorcists, Immolators and a Repressor)...at first I was ready to just start painting them...but they are so different in size from the old vehicles that they look weird together, so I would field them only in smaller games. So the dilemma is do I paint up the new ones or remain content with the large paint mobile units I already have?

Thanks you two.

As requested.





Now I could not find the flying stand for the Avenger (likely packed with my resin Valkyries), so it has landed for this photo:

It does give you an idea of the size of the Avenger compared to the vehicles and infantry.

Whew, those are some beautiful army shots Captain. I always love to see an army of sisters, and yours are particularly nice. Plenty of old-school cool.

Well done!

No more unpainted Sisters... that's an admirable feat, and they look great to boot. I'm trying to do the same before plastics arrive, but you've got me beat. Congrats!

Also, do you have a point cost and/or list for the army as you've deployed it here? Maybe not maximized for tabletop, but with each of your units costed and assigned to detachments? What's the biggest you've played with this group?

Amazing army shots of the SoB, that's certainly a sizeable force! Must weight a bit too to lug around for games I bet.

Job well done indeed!

As said earlier, I really like those older rhino hulls. Looks really fitting with the rest of the models.
Images look very good.

A massive force.... maybe 3000 points or so? Thanks for the list... I'm inspired to get rolling on my own. Thirty-ish models to go and I'll be able to stage my own victory photo.

Is an army ever really finished?

Finally going to start replacing my battalion of painted Mark I tanks with Mark II. First up is the Exorcist.

Thanks Ezki.

OK, question for everyone, should I glue the whole model together or make the turret/organs separate from the hull?

I have built the Rhino hull and now have to decide whether to glue the plastic turret base to the rest of the hull. That is the Sisters of Battle turret that the organ pipes and other metal parts are glued to.

For storage the two parts would be easiest, but the organs and other metal parts are really heavy and weighted towards the back of the model.

Would love to hear from others who have finished the kit.

Thoughts?

As a suggestion you could try some strong magnets.

I have never built the kit, or even a Rhino for that matter, so I'm afraid I can't provide further insight on how to execute this.

Not where I should be

I would try the two part route to start with, you can always glue it down later if necessary. I would also second Ezki, on the strong magnet idea, some 20mm magnets are seriously finger pinchers, and would work nicely.

My thought is always "how many different tanks can I run with this kit?" I'd try to magnetize in a way that you can run Immolator or Exorcist, which gets you the easy breakdown for storage and transport too. I bet a strong magnets mounted to the bottom of the (if I remember correctly) two metal base pieces could reach through the holes on the top plate to find a rectangular piece of card with corresponding magnets mounted to the back of it. The whole top plate with Exorcist parts could stay magnetized together for transport and play, but also be pulled apart to mount Immolator components. If you were really crafty with magnets and card you could build a permanent magnetic surface inside the Rhino's roof to secure either kit (and having watched the Chiliwack come together, you are plenty crafty with card).

Thank you for the ideas Ezki, Camkierhi and MacPhail,

I will build the two parts separate for now and figure out the magnets before it see's the gaming table.

Progress:


That back part was a real pain to fix so that it would sit properly on the Immolator turret.


After what seemed like hours of sanding and flash removal I have two main components and some small stuff I will secure after painting is complete.
