heya, i got my hands on the plastic sister the other day so i wanted to show what i'd done so far (it's not finished as the family has been unwell and iv'e only been able to paint her off n on over the last few days)

Anyways here's my WiP so far.. she's almost done

and the base - 

 

med_gallery_9146_7882_225052.jpg

 

since these pics i have finished the base and painted her boltgun in red... all i have to do is finish the hard part...the Face ermm.gif

 

anyways the new sister of battle has lots of detail and is a great sculpt, i look forward to the rest of the army coming along...

 

Cheers, Mithril

The colors look really nice! As a note for when you do more, the skull-in-a-circle emblem on her base and at her waist is technically the emblem of the Order of Our Martyred Lady, in case that makes any difference to you.

 Thanks for the heads up, not much i can do about that except write it into my fluff For my "Sisters of Avalon" order... or perhaps she was just visiting the other convent on that day tongue.png

She's well-painted.

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

She's looking really cool there! Every time I see that plastic sister the temptation to pick her up and replace her bolter with a flaming sword to use as a canoness grows!

Well if we don’t get flaming sword characters in the plastic release then that may well be the way to go, I can easily see it being done !!

No, you haven't. My FLGS was shipped ten copies of Sister Amalia Novena last week. That's right, a non-Warhammer store received ten copies. Needless to say, I was rather pissed off that I wasted a Saturday driving to get one from a GW store after being told it was a GW-store/online only in the BSB.

Check with your FLGS just to see.

I had the same experience. Went to the not so local GW store, they had 10, I was maybe the 15th person in, there was a line.

Dejected I stopped by my local gaming store and they had received 3, no one knew and I was able to get one.

Very happy for me there.

A very nicely painted model, BTW.

Very nice! The colors look so nice on her. The white bolter is the icing on the cake.

Well, after finding out that my scheme was super close to the sisters of the Order of the Argent Shroud... i caved in a went why not, established fluff etc, decals please GW sweat.gif  a chance of rules in the new book.... So Argent Shroud they are now.

i kept the purple Abdomen on her as i thought she's a Character and still needs to stand out from the rest cool.png  so a little royal bling is ok...

*the head had many dramas including getting lost ,ending up in white spirits,losing detail from a scouring pad ohmy.png ...lets say this head is temporary till i can replace it...

But apart from that she is done.... 

Now i need more plastic sisters to paint laugh.png

Hey that still would have worked, my Sisters vows each barely scratched 100 points.

 

Great job on that mini, the chrome armor and the cloth are especially good and the whole thing is a very clean paint job; very Apollonian, just how I like to see Sisters :)

She's not really a unit, so would she count as a vow?

Captain Semper is allowing her use as a counts as Canoness.

Very nicely done model! ^_^

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.
- Sister Katherine Elysius,
Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

Haha, yup I have a big Necron army myself with lots that need to be painted and I've painted all the sisters stuff I own for the ETL. Now I'm stumped but the long wait for plastics is almost over.

Looks great! I'm glad you moved away from the purple on the shoulders, it looked a bit clashy. Model ties together really nicely, and that fabric I adore. Well done.

Thanks man, Yeah I’m glad I dumped the purple shoulders too :-D , I wasn’t seeing my vision in the first run I did so I either had to change it or never look at her again !!! Lol , on the standard sisters I’m definitely doing red on the inside of the robes...Amalia was too hard to do that with, once she was together and over half done I thought gee I should’ve painted the insides before anything else Doh >.<
I’m looking forward to doing an Argent Shroud army now I’ve sorted out my colours..
