The Sisters kit is looking great, plenty of options!

I'm happy with the minis but the scale is really strange, some are even as tall as a Primaris

What do people think of the colour schemes? I'm struggling to pick one.
Personally I really like the Valorous Heart rules but the Ebon Chalice looks great, as do the other minor orders.
As usual I can't decide!

among the majorious orders there's so many black armor schemes... :(

thats one thing I'll give Marines, even if you go with just the 1st founding chapters there's a lot of variation in colour.

Argent Shroud is the one that appeals to me, but that Order of the Thorn bone armour is pretty cool.

After Ravenwing, Raven Guard and Deathwatch, I know what colour I'm not doing (even though I also feel Ebon Chalice looks great). Sacred Rose looks good too, but so much white. I may go custom.

You do understand that you don't need to pick any of the official schemes? You can do your own.

I'm gonna do something like in the cover of Codex Witch Hunters. Red armour, off white robes, white hair.

Whichever you choose, I suspect you'll want more than one. I'm on my third in a series of coordinating schemes, one the reverse of the other, and it gives me the flexibility to deploy multiple Orders (plus I'm sick of painting white!). I'll probably end up painting these new plastics in a few schemes to fill out the ranks of my various Battalions.

I'm doing Sacred Rose. I painted a few of them back in 2nd ed, and white armour is really striking.

Plus now we have Contrast paints, and Apothecary White is just amazing, and works perfectly for this.

I prime it with Corax White, and then just Apothecary White on top. Then finish off with a very slight White Scar edge highlight.

Planning a custom Order, but might make them partially similar to whatever Order they have descended from and use those rules. Will have to take a closer look at the rules, background and existing colour schemes once my book/box arrives. Couldn't care less about the in-game benefits of the Order in question - rules change from one edition or FAQ to the next, while I will have to look at those figures and paint those colours for many years to come!

Leaning towards Ebon Chalice too both for the colours and background, but thinking of having the habit entirely white, then maybe a dark red for the hair. Gold trim on the black armour, just because it looks real fancy. Also planning something pretty heretical for the background, inspired by the Cathars. Still, it will be a while before the Order of the Pure Flame can be found on any gaming tables.

This is the Contrast Flesh Tearers Red and paints over a grey undercoat.



Figures are the Armoured Nuns from Anvil but I used them as a test bed for the Contrast paints ahead of the Sororitas being launched.

I like the deep red and bone drapes (wounded hearts). But it isn't the colours I'm going for. I also like the Order of the Thorn a lot as coloured there.

But I'm thinking of a custom colour scheme, thinking something like striking scorpion green but with white helmets. Bone coloured drapes.

I went with bone white and Warpstone rather than Scorpion, but I've built 3500 points of Sisters with various combos of green, white, and gold... see the link in my sig if you want. Now that there are so many worthwhile Order Convictions to use interchangeably, I'm glad to have gone with an original scheme and nonspecific order.

The Order of the Dauntless Heart have always worn cream robes lined with scarlet, with purple weapon casings, but after the advent of the Great Rift split the Order’s parish in half, the survivors in both halves, each fearing the other half lost to the rift and out of contact, have each independently changed their armour to ashen grey in mourning.
Still they endure, however, carrying on their work in stoic silence, refusing to seek additional aid for to cry for help would defame the memory of the six Companions of St. Lucia who silently endured torture to ease the saint’s own suffering, whose memory and sacrifice the Order was created to honour.

I'm liking the scheme talk so far - anyone who paints their minis Scorpion Green deserves a big thumbs up from me

I typically paint 'canon' schemes as I usually paint for others or my store these days.
Either that or I love the background and go from there - plus I don't have to think too much and can get straight to painting.

If I try a scheme of my own I usually fail - either colour choice is off or my technique to get there is all shot. I don't know why
So that normally leaves canon schemes or a piece of art/other people's schemes I tweak accordingly.
I'm interested to see what people come up with over the coming months for sure.

so found this with a quick google search and thought it might be useful for anyone looking to do a custom order

https://wou.edu/wp/exhibits/files/2015/07/christianity.pdf

it's about colours and their syumbolic meaning in christianity.

hmm maybe blue and white for a custom order.. it'd look pretty cool
