Excellent conversions. Looking forwards to the odds, ends, and Inquisitors.

Thanks Gen.Steiner and Nevelon.

Here is the lone painted Immolator (working on two more), normally it has served as the transport for the Canoness Command Squad as my Heavy Support is full.

Nice use of Necromunda figures there Captain! It's strange seeing Escher used as Zealots but the whole disparate mob really pops and fits well with the lunacy of the Imperium and 40K. Top notch!

You can with opponent's consent! Just use the old rules for them - 4th Edition, I believe it was - that were found in White Dwarf.

Bob's your uncle. They're not even slightly overpowered but are a great way to get a cheap bunch of basic humans on the table to die heroically for the Emperor and thus enable your Sisters of Battle to actually do things.

Thank you both for your comments.

Since the disappeared from the list I have not fielded them as a unit, in fact the WFB artillery crew member has found a new home and I have looked for more Cawdor to fill in for Priests other models elsewhere, but there just has not been the urge. I need more old Mark I Rhinos before I re-finish this unit.

Maybe one day.

So some more photos, these of the Priests...for what Ecclesiastical Army would be without Priests?



This figure could double as a Preacher or even a low level Inquisitor.


Now the two on the left of this image were only touched up by me, as they came in an eBay auction in just the right colour scheme and were quite well painted (and based but that is easy work).

More to come, but I am getting near the end of the fully painted portion of the army.

Thanks Gen.Steiner,

In the meantime it is time to get some more painting, here is my to-do pile:



In the meantime, I am looking for old Mark I Rhinos like these to trade for:




Now I know there are none out there with Sister's markings (unless they are Immolators) and I am quite happy looking for old Marine Rhinos is various states of degradation. One thing you can see from my PLOGs is I am very proud of reviving old models and giving them life back.

Gen.Steiner, not certain...I saw a Sister's Scheme that really called out to me...it would also fit with the army better.

It certainly is a larger Forge World model:

EDC,
I had some 'fun' with the assembly.

There was some spots were there resin had not filled the mold.


The nose cone was far larger than the fuselage it connected too.

Thanks Gen.Steiner and Cap'n Facebeard.

Gen.Steiner, I painted my last Vendetta in a grey pattern and it has sat unfinished for quite a while as I have not been loving the paint scheme. Does someone have some of the recent Forge World Imperial Navy patterns to share?

More on the progress of the Avenger:





Now one issue was that the rear gunner would not fit in the after cockpit with the canopy added. So lots of using a file to remove resin.


Did Forge World change all their cockpit canopies to this resin variant versus the old clear plastic you made yourself?

Yes, I was a little surprised myself having purchased and assembled and painted three previous Forge World Aircraft and other than one issue with the troop compartment of a Valkyrie they were great models with superior resin castings.

Work on the nose cone to get it down to a similar size to the fuselage.


More putty repairs and some detail I rebuilt out of styrene card.


Looking like a Fighter Bomber now.


Thanks for the views and comments.

Thanks Gen.Steiner,

So from the photos above you will note I had to repair/replace some of the connections to the flaps (ailerons being the outer ones on the other side of the engines).

Tinkered with the weapons adding some rare earth magnets to the outer hard points.





Now I just used the missiles from my Valkyrie kit so far...not certain if I will build all the options or the bare minimum as the Avenger is pretty well armed already.

Still no set on a camo scheme so I should get on the tanks or Sisters waiting to be finished.

CragHack, it was not that bad, not as high quality as some of my earlier Forge World models.

Thanks Gen.Steiner, although I am certain CragHack wants to keep it.

So two things, first I have finished two Heavy Flamer Sisters to give me some more options for the Sister's Squads.




Second I am starting to question the paint scheme I had chosen for the Avenger, I was going to paint it traditional Order of Our Martyred Lady Black and Red...but now I am thinking I might paint it my standard desert camouflage I used for my Elysian aircraft (you can see it in my Elysian PLOG). What are peoples' thoughts?

HF sisters look great. On the aircraft scheme, personally I prefer aircraft not to have gaudy schemes, so a vote for the camo here. After all, isn't it actually coming from an Imperial Navy reserve? Or am I missing some fluff here?

I vote for standard desert camo. It'll blend in with your other armies, enable you to link them with your Sisters, and also fits the background better.

Nothing technical about it. With a tiny tiny handful of exceptions *cough*Phantine*cough* all aerospace assets are controlled and deployed by the Imperial Navy in support of Imperial Guard ground actions. Adepta Sororitas elements would, along with the Guard, and other Imperial forces, be allocated air support much in line with any modern military - request it, you get it, assuming it's available.

Most of the other exceptions concern Valkyries, Vultures and Vendettas, some of which have been permanently attached to Guard regiments. Although it's worth noting that even in these cases the crews are all still Navy trained and ranked.

Oh, and the Inquisition, who if they wanted, could I suppose order a fleet of Thunderbolts painted electric blue and hot pink and flown by church mice.
