 This is a thread to document my incredibly slow painting progress for my sisters. How slow? Well I started collecting them when Codex: Witch Hunters came out so about that slow. I loved the models ever since I saw them in the 3rd edition rulebook, and over the past few years I've got back in to painting things so I stripped my old paint scheme in favour of the shiny, knightly goodness of the Order of the Argent Shroud.

 

 Current painting varies quite wildly as I learn and practice again but these are my best bunch so far. All metal models of course - I topped up my collection just before the plastic release because I want a consistent looking army. Still deciding what I might expand with next.

 A few of the second hand models I have I didn't bother stripping as they were base coated already, but the details look noticeably softer on those ones so I'll send the rest to the meths bath before I get round to them.

 

 The theme in my mind for the army is that contingent of sisters deployed in the third war for Armageddon, so lots of wasteland bases with a good helping of ork skulls courtesy of some quick press moulds.

Good job on the models.
Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' 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.

They look excellent - always pleased to see more Sisters in sliver (though I suppose technically mine are a minor successor order instead).

It's really cool seeing the old retro models, too - I remember when the Witch Hunters codex came out.

Welcome ! Beautiful work here. I especially like the girl with the barrett. Fantastic add for sure. The colors are very nice and smooth. The skin is well executed.

I have come to kick ass and chew bubble gum! And I'm fresh outta bubble gum.

I like the way they pop.

Those Sisters really look good.

 I think my favourite thing I stumbled in to was the colour scheme, it's all reds and oranges and has hints of Blanche artwork in the colours all because I decided on the orangey desert bases. I'm going to stick with shades of red hair now to complete the look.

Love the sister just behind and to the right of your simulacrum- she kinda looks like she's wearing a Commissar's cap. Great colour scheme- love the red accents.

 She is wearing a commissar cap, I used her in my IG for a bit years ago.

Bump!
 
 I've been painting very slowly over lockdown but I'm aiming to speed up over the next few weeks. The current plan is to paint at least a couple of minis to completion every week, and here are the first 3.
 
Week 1

 

 I've been working on overcoming my fear of eyes and it's going well enough so far.

I think I could really push the highlights on the red a bit higher but I'll probs leave it for characters and centrepiece minis, happy with these for tabletop standard.

 

 Definitely want to work on my photography setup a bit more.

 I completed 3 more sisters this week and the gang is slowly growing. Want to get some better pictures of them when it's light, I've been trying to actually paint all the faces and make the hair look like hair.

 I've got a project to do with the backpacks eventually. They're easy to paint up and glue on but a lot of the metal ones I have are terrible casts so I might make a sprue of the few good ones and recast them in resin.

 I got a ring light to help my poor crappy camera phone out! Here's the latest sisters I've painted up. Going to try making some more shading on the weapons going forward, I've been trying out some glazing techniques.
