Well the Rebributor box is coming, so maybe that box'll be as generous as this and give us x4 HB, x4 MM and x4 HF (Retributors can get Heavy Flamers, right?).

Built and painted 5 Battle Sisters and built the Mistress Repentia and 2 of her charges. Not terrible to put together, but I did miss a couple of mold lines during assembly. Went with an original colour scheme, white armour, sky blue robes and purple weapons and trim. Came out a bit Elsa from Frozen before adding all the metallics, but very happy with it. Gonna keep the same colours across the army I think but change the layout a bit on some units.

Only intended to get a small allied detachment of Sisters but definitely going to get the St Katherine band and a few other things.

Take a look at what I've been painting and modelling: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/725222.page

Not sure which Order I'm going to paint mine either. My metal ones are Martyred Lady, but I don't like to mix sculpts that are so different in proportion. I'm thinking Wounded Heart or one of the silver ones. It'll be a while until I can undercoat them anyway, so I'll keep thinking on it.

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.


That was kind of the point though. Marines were flamboyant, prideful and individualistic, even during the 1st Founding. by contrast, Sisters were austere, reserved and plain. At least originally. Their ornamentation was minimal (for a 40K force), and their look was more severe, uniform and subdued, focusing on simple black, white and red color combinations. The more elaborate iconography and flamboyant decorations were left to the Ministorum units like the missionaries and Confessors. The church was decadent and rich. The sisters were plain and pious. Of course that all changed with the Witch Hunters codex.

yea that said I think you'd wanna try and keep their armor within catholic colour theory (I linked an article earlier) and it's worth noting MOST canon orders do so.

when one looks at what the colours mean it's no wonder black, white and red are so pre-dominant (in hereldric tradtion silver = white so the argent shroud are, from a heledric POV in white armor)

Right. IIRC, red, white, and black represents the holy trinity - flame, melta, and bolter.

On Nov 16, 2019 I predicted that Warhammer the Old World will be a 15 - 18mm scale game - and I'm going to leave this in my sig until it's settled one way or the other.

Maybe your FLGS didn't anticipate a lot of demand and didn't order a lot.

I mean, this is a model line that has been functionally extinct for over fifteen years.

Or,could be the opposite. Nobody at his store wanted them.

they got 30 in total and 15 of them were preorders. Other than myself the only people that bought the set were those that wanted the "special" codex. Everyone else that currently plays Sororitas is just waiting for the regular codex.

my FLGS got 4 boxes in, they all sold within 10 minutes (the first 3 sold out within the time it took me and to other guys to grab the bx and get it rung through the cash register)

though it did vary, I heard one story that a guy in Onterio waited in front of his local GW from 6 am, only to be the only person to show up for a sisters box

a bit of a size creap is to be expected given the age of the old sisters minis I guess.

I'm normally cool with size differences, I'm a head taller than my sister and we were made to the same scale by the same sculptors

But a head taller than a Marine? That's a bit much.

Might be another sign that the 3rd-7th edition Marines are on their way out, it's not like GW made any RT scale marines after 3rd.

The sister looks a lot more human scale than heroic scale in that comparison. Longer shins and torso, smaller head and hands, and smaller bolter, though Astartes equipment is meant to be oversized compared to mortal versions.

GW has learned that heroic proportionet female figures look like crap, so thats why most female models have much more realistic proportions than the male ones.

And thats why normally I prefer them. For example, Stormcasts.

So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.
