Not sure where to post this so im taking a guess here-

I played around and made some photoshop conversions (they're so much cheaper to experiment with) and came up with these.

Sister Superior

Now im not sure however how "fluffy" these conversion are, i know that the SoB use power armor but im not enterily sure what the different of the two are, im sure you know this better than i. Are these models possible from a fluff point of view?

To me, they look far too "manly", esp the last one, which looks like a man in drag.

These are what female SM's *shudders* would be like, nots SOB's. Nice ideas, but not particuarl appropriate IMO.

Erm, it's an odd one.

Sister and Inquistor Power Armour is different, and arguably inferior, in that they aren't linked to it. It provides them with superior protection and enhanced strength, but the Marine Power Armour is essentially like a second skin and provides a lot... well, more to a Marine because they're plugged into it.

Fluffy or not, it's tough to say. Depends on the Convent, but as long as you don't claim they're female Marines, merely Sisters in armour that shares the Asartes aesthetic, no-one will probably moan.

'sides, the work required is insane.

Actually mostly it's just head swaps and repainted in photoshop

The first two look good, the last one's the most awkward.

As for fluff, I don't see the problem if they're just occasional, and not an entire army (not that you could anyway, unless there's a way to just buy heads that I don't know of). If I were big-boned I wouldn't want to walk around in a corset either.

Yes it would only be for the HQ/maybe the elite leaders.
The armors are bulky enough to encompass a chest so i don't see a problem with them beeing far to manly (though it's tight on the last one)

here are the originals incase anyones interested

SOB Power armor is more form fit so that there is no question that the user is female.

However, I did see someone do a head swap years ago on a Terminator with a cannoness head. It still looked odd even though it was well done.

If you're looking to use these primarily for characters, and you're planning on removing the obvious marine iconography, then sure. I could easily see the plastic marine commander kit being used as a basis for a cannoness, just to make her extra imposing/badass.

So yeah, scrape off the marine bits, jazz her up with some Sororitas bits and some green stuff, and I say go for it. But if it's just going to be a head swap, then probably not - it'll just look like a female marine...

It works cause gender isn't going to show through full power armor anyway, and either way, SoBs get a 3+ save, but it's just not aesthetically pleasing to my eye.

i see the armor as far too bulky. it would look nice, but i would find it hard to fit in with the rest of the army.

so that the male psychers will be distracted at looking at the long legs while the SOB cuts his head off:D
