Converted a used and half broken Rhino I acquired long ago into a Repressor (“counts-as-repressor” if you prefer that) and tried to make it fit in with the style of my homemade infantry. The dozer blade and the passenger compartment are magnetized. The gunner girl and the Stormbolter turret are on corks and can also be changed, so this vehicle can still be used as a Rhino.

Found at least twelve more Adepta Sororitas vehicles, many bits in my storage, most bought or swapped in used condition, but also unbuilt boxes and am currently considering what to make out of that. Think I could make at least two more of this repressor with different details and in the long run maybe 3 of each type of vehicle (Rhino, Immolator, Exorcist, Repressor). Given I will probably also get another one of each from the upcoming line, those will be more than I can ever field, so they don’t have to be just practical. Recommendations and CC welcome.

The passenger compartment is a modified part from WGE, headlights are also WGE. The Dozer blade is slightly modified from Kromlech I think. The Gunner (I call her Tank girl) is made from Brown Stuff and Magic Sculpt with press moulds from Celestine, Amalia and a Sequitor’s head. The flames on the exhausts are copied from the metal Canoness backpack, the shrine from a Bretonian banner and the fleurs below the headlights are press moulds from an earring, armor and other details from the Immolator/Exorcist box. The girl on the blade is based on a piece of art by Liam Hammond.

Exceptional work, Max! The overall look is exactly what Sisters should be piloting into battle. I have always preferred the look of the angular demolition plow blade to the flat, square look of an engineering blade- go big or go home; the purpose of the Army is to kill people and break stuff, and you can do that better with an angular blade!

Tank Girl is very well done also, I can't believe how much of your own fabrication you do and yet they come out looking like factory production pieces and I mean that in a good way!).

Thanks Meer_Cat and Captain Brown!

Since Repressors prior to their use on battlefields were designed to act as anti-riot-vehicles intended to be able to quickly clear a path through urban obstacles and crowds I find this type of blade adequate, but foremost I simply like how blades/plows of some WWII tanks looked (especially the urban Panther Ausf D with the dozer blade) and took them as inspiration (Stug IV & Panther found via pinterest):

It's been a year now since the start of my Adepta Sororitas Project of the Order of the Cleansing Blade.

Currently I'm finishing my first Penitent Engine (WIP).

Digging how tall and lanky it is! New GW one is way too squat and stubby for my needs.

Thanks, Boss Salvage! I think the new GW one would benefit from different legs and maybe a different heretic (male or female), but I like its arms and the torso.

Here's the prototype painted. Think I will make about three of this style (but with different pilots probably).

The Mausoleum of Sister Leonore: A modular piece of terrain I made for the 30th installment of the League of Extraordinary Riveters Terrain Competition on Dakka Dakka. Per rules of this round of the competition the terrain piece has to have several options (motto: "Double Entendre"). Mine can be used as a standard terrain piece with a base holding the rockcrete coffin and statue inside. Alternatively the base can be used as a roof, e.g. for display purposes. In addition, the statue may serve as an objective marker fiercely held and defended by the Sisters of the Order of the Cleansing Blade.

Here’s the link to the competition featuring many superb pieces by a number of great hobbyists: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/779101.page

WIP pics of my contribution and the materials used (e.g. a fancy little bucket) are also found in a gallery here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/gallery/images-122787-61696_Terrain%20WIP.html

I’d like to build a ‘armies on parade’ display board for the Order of the Cleansing Blade next year, although I will never partake in the official event due to a lot of 3rd party stuff. This piece could be the start.

Ephrael Stern Challenge

Ephrael Stern, also known as the Thrice-Born, Daemonifuge, and Heretic Saint is one of, if not the, most badass Sister of Battle. For many years we have not heard of the heroine of the Daemonifuge graphic novel series, but in late 2019 she was mentioned (without actually giving her name) in Psychic Awakening: Phoenix Rising and then the continuation of her story was announced in the Black Library Weekender.

Given it is highly probable we’ll get a plastic version of her limited out-of-print metal miniature next year, what better time could there be for an Ephrael Stern Challenge? I’ll try to create my own Ephrael Stern miniature inspired by the graphic novels and especially the new cover art by Tazio Bettin revealed and I'll post my progress right here. Wanna join? Let me know.

The first parts I took as templates are all from the GW Geminae. I used the outside of the left and right thighs, two lower legs, front plate including the grenade, back of a torso and a gorget. I made oyumaru pressmolds of those details, filled them with a mixture of Magic-Sculpt and Brown Stuff and once almost set put them together using brown stuff and power glue. When still not completely hard I gave the torso a twist as there is one in the illustration but not in the plate of the Geminae.

The Ephrael Stern Challenge continues...

Next templates I used were the arms of Celestine including the open left hand (changed the thumb a little), the right hand of her sword (but nothing else of the sword) and the sword of metal Ephrael Stern including the tiny skull pommel (which will be added later). If you look closely at the new cover art you can see her bolt pistol is on her left hip behind the grenade. Because the bolt pistol of metal Ephrael is rather large for more modern miniatures (as are her hands) I'll use the outside of one of the Geminaes' pistols (will also be added later). All parts so far made from a mixture of Magic-Sculpt and Brown Stuff.

The Ephrael Stern Challenge continues...

Time to add some decorations. Ephrael needs skull boobs and the only other official Sororitas model I am aware of (aside of metal Ephrael) featuring those is Veridyan. I have added them to some of my Canonesses in the past, so this was not too difficult. The knees also got a pair of them and I added the purity seals on the right side of the chest. Tried a lot of different heads, but this one from Statuesque fits best in my opinion (if one was limited to use only GW stuff, the female magus would be my second best head choice). I changed the mouth area of the head to show the teeth. Will also need a jump pack (Geminae) and shoulder pads/pauldrons (also Geminae), but the next step is green stuff robes and hair. Really hope she looks better after that.

The Ephrael Stern Challenge continues...

Added some Green Stuff robes and hair as well as the pistol. Please ignore the “we kill the Batman”-lipstick. Just needed this to see better if I got the two rows of teeth right with the Brown Stuff. Quite some clean up to do now, also the rear part of the robes is too long .

Been a very cool process, really dig how you sampled bits from different Sisters. Excited to see paint pull it all together. (Also Stern is a frigging badass!)

Added pauldrons, jump pack, shortened the rear robes and added wire for the force lightning, I mean psychic power. A little more cleaning and then painting.

I will call my Ephrael done for now and like how she turned out. Of course there are always steps that could have been done better and I learned a thing or two.

Thanks to all of you for following the progress and the encouraging comments.

Almost all the sisters of the Order of the Cleansing Blade were made in a similar fashion and I can’t wait for new source materials from the upcoming box.
