That description actually just makes me wanna play them "exactly" like that. *giggle*

I've been fiddling around with the idea of picking up some Sisters to run as an IG ally, and to be really honest, I'm more than okay using some of RagingHeroes models. With GW not really bothering to make new models or units for years at a time, while some of the basics are still available, I feel like a few well sculpted newer models would be nice to have.

Anyways *shrugs*, I don't have any problem with them aesthetically. As much as I want GW to release new rules and models though also, I feel like if I buy some elsewhere, they have only themselves to blame.

Not really sure where you're getting the "naughty nuns" idea from the picture gallery, at least beyond the attire that certain GW Sisters are already depicted in wearing.

Thigh-high boots? Check. Got them in 40K.
Wasp-waisted? Check.

Near-naked, clad in robes and scrolls? Check. That's the Sisters Repentia.

... but check out the Chalice Knight. She looks *badass*.

Not much different, really. Main point being, the Order of Eternal Mercy is not a significant departure from the already-existing art in GW publications.

Of course, people are free to like it or not, I'm not saying that people *must* like the RH version... but what I am suggesting is that the OoEM announcement, which has been known as an upcoming project for a couple years now, might be the drive behind GW's rumored update to the Sisters.

That is "exactly" what I was thinking when I saw that one. I immediately thought, "Now THAT looks like a female space marine." Heck I'd like models like that I could use in a normal chapter of space marines if they were something that included females. As it stands though I could easily see using her as a Sister superior model or something along those lines. She just looks seriously fierce.

I may be entirely wrong about this, but I think the image of the one in black is actually the idea for the Sisters that will be used for their Fantasy line-up. I think the ones in white with the actual armor plating and such are the 40k futuristic style stand ins.

That probably doesn't change your mind about em or anything, but the armored ones are what I'd use in 40k in any case.

Well, it depends which GW artwork you focus on. I love Andrea Uderzo's sisters. I guess I said enough.

I think she overdoes the pauldrons rather a bit. They're almost Space Marine caliber, but her b&w pieces are really good.

He. Andrea is a Italian name for men, not women, even though it ends with an “a”.
And why should Sisters get pauldrons smaller than their marines counterpart? Bigger is better!

First one is clearly wearing armor and Blanche draws everyone like that.

And I meant the one on the right with what looks to be thigh-highs and a shiny black material for her form fitting boob socks:


So yeah, not my thing for Sisters. Now fetish gear I'd say "sure, that's fine" but not a heavily armored combat nun.

I thought we were talking about these one, you don't think this is a good aesthetic for Sisters? It just looks like a more refined version of GW's aesthetic to me.

I was specifically talking about the nun on their new Kick Starter image in my inital post.

And no, I still don't like their approach for most of them (Sister Reyallia and Sister Altarii namely there, the others with the thicker armor is better in my mind).

Personally I'd prefer to keep pin-up-eske models to Slaanesh more than Sisters.

Hey all, just letting you know I got the sister and she is now helping a downed squad of Marines recover a servo skull on my Stormraven's base. Inside there was a letter apologizing for delays caused by stock issues.

Also, got a random Khorne bracelet. Is GW trying to tell me I should collect them all like pokemon?

To each their own, but it's funny you mention Reyallia and Altarii as being the ones you don't like because they are the ones that remind me most of the GW ones, it's just the GW ones are derpily posed, lol. The same thin form fitting armour and the same boob-plate, the GW ones are just posed in the typical GW pose where they look like they are about to start doing squats or maybe doing the splits

As for the nun, I figured that was less of a heavily armoured battle sister and more of a lightly armoured (or unarmoured) elite unit.

I know they're closer to the GW ones, but the GW ones could use some bulking up so the armor looks less skin tight. It'd stop the "it doesn't look like actual power armor" stuff we see now and then online.

But don't they use a modified power armor, since they are not infused with gene seed? So wouldn't it stand to reason it would look different than typical Marines?

They don't have the Black Carapce, and it's not sealed like Marine Power Armor.

And I didn't say the models should look different in their design, just that the armor should look thicker. Keep the same ornate gothic look, just not as thin is all I'm saying.

My problem with Raging Cheesecake just stems from the ridiculous poses. They have to be some of the more ludicrous models out there. It isn't that they're oversexed, it's that they literally look like the booth girls from an international arms expo posing with the weapons, rather than some kind of futuristic warrior actually using one.

Like, seriously, what the feth is this model doing?

Or this one>

Or that this one is straight up modeled after the porn star from the cover of the Blink 182 album, lol.

Uh, what again?
The GW armor for Sisters may not be their thickest one, but it is seriously thicker than the one on those illustrations. I mean, look at the midriff. For the Raging Heroes illustrations, it is clearly thinner than their hip. This is made to make them look more “sexy”, at the expense of looking less armored more skintight. And way smaller pauldrons.
I agree that they are not that far away from GW's sisters, but they push them further in a direction I do not like rather than pushing them further in a direction I like.

For male units, more elite means better armor. For female units, more elite means lighter armor .
