    Smile Captain Brown's Sisters of Battle - Adepta Sororitas Painting Log - Finished

    Starting a new Painting Log, some of you might remember me from previous logs like:
    Captain Brown's Elysian Drop Troops Painting Log
    Captain Brown's Tau Painting Log
    Captain Brown's Ork Painting Log
    Captain Brown's 8th Necromunda Imperial Guard Regiment The 'Spiders'
    Or for the really eclectic you might have seen
    Captain Brown builds the Flower Class Corvette HMCS CHILLIWACK (What did he say?!)

    Now I don’t know how many photos this log will reach, but I bet the number of folks using dial-up is almost zero now, so the disclaimer is unnecessary, and showing my age...

    So here you will find my latest painting log, don’t come here if you are looking for new paint schemes or wild conversions as I usually paint my armies in standard schemes. Why gets asked a bit and the simple answer is advertising and the fact that normally the GW schemes work well on the colour wheel (after all they do all the test miniature schemes before settling on the ones that will be added in the pages of a Codex or White Dwarf). The figures and models will be older and not the new Finecast or much in the way of plastics (not that Sisters had much in the way of plastic figures).

    Any way back to my painting log...I first started painting and collecting some Sisters of Battle for the Witch Hunters list of a few years ago. Now, like all gamers a new list means some adjustments of the old list and some motivation to get and paint some of those unpainted figures that sit in boxes and raise the ire of Mrs Captain Brown. As many Witch Hunter players have discovered, our Inquisitor retinues and weird and wacky militias seem to have disappeared from the list, as well as Stormtroopers...so it looks like vanilla Sisters, so I need to finish some of the more bizarre troop types to add a little flavour.

    My original list sort of ran similar to a Guard army... (what an Imperial Guard Army theme from Captain Brown? Never.) With two Sisters squads acting as a platoon supported by a Retributer Squad acting as a Heavy Weapons Section, a Dominion Squad in a Rhino as my Armoured Fist and an Inquisitor and Retinue as a Command HQ, all backed up by a pair of Exorcists as my tanks. The army was not all that successful as it did not have the numbers to simulate guardsmen and the Inquisitor and Retinue ate up a whole lot of points for not much return, but they were fun to play. I added a Zealot squad when the amendment came out in White Dwarf and had loads of fun shouting that I was off to burn the heretics as they swarmed across the table. Now the Inquisitor and Zealots are gone and only Sisters remain.

    Some of you might recognize the Inquisitor model I used as the commander from my avatar, here he is, sadly no longer in the list.


    With that look back at the old commander I will start the log with the first few entries and my long war against the piles of silver, white and grey models will go on...

    Re: Captain Brown's Sisters of Battle Painting Log

    So out of the closet come the old models...here are some of the completed ones which I will need to sort out later...but to start I really need to do some important work on the Exorcists.





    First up is one of the Exorcists and then some Repentia...now I built these from some old Rhinos I got on e-Bay with a Marine Whirlwind Launcher top and the Sister and shield from the Immolator kit (these were built prior to the GW model on the new Rhino Chassis and I have never thought to upgrade as this was a smaller less used army).

    So here is Exorcist A, now when I first finished it I made these rather large purity symbols, mainly to brighten up the all black paint scheme and throw in some devotional themes as the old Rhino is not a particularly nice looking tank.

    I also added extra Armour to the front and forward sides to counter-balance the Whirlwind launcher and operator.




    Looking a little better now, at least in my opinion.

    Now to add some of the zany and wacky units, some Repentia have been lying around looking very forlorn in a book, here are the first three to start a small unit.



    The long painting war continues...

    Re: Captain Brown's Sisters of Battle Painting Log

    Picture limit reached, so another post, some Priests, two of these were done before (fellow with sword and one of the clubs) and I have added a few more and kept to a simple colour palate and theme. I think the extra ones came in an eBay purchase...as I would not have bought so many Priests for a playable army.





    I doubt I will ever use all four, but they got rid of some of the unpainted figures. They were very quick to paint.

    Great start to the army! I love that you are not just building Battle Sister squad after Battle Sister squad (like the rest of us)! Keep the updates coming!

    Well the reason I don't have to do Sister after Sister is that a good number of them are already done. Although that doesn't mean I don't have more to do. :cries:

    Here are the two large squads I used as my 'platoon'.





    They are all standard Sisters, with the exception being those carrying the standard/icon, where some bits from the old skeleton army box and some wooden bits to make a box and some of the green-stuff purity seals finished the icons.

    Some of the old army needs some serious re-work, such as the two Rhinos, I did not even paint these but only touched them up to get them onto the table top, now they will get a bath of Simple Green and get a proper "black" scheme.



    I should get a couple more Repentia done this evening for you razormasticator.

    Re: Captain Brown's Sisters of Battle Painting Log

    I love the old style Rhinos. Whatever you do, make sure you keep those, and if you need more make sure you use more of those!

    Your Sisters also have a great paint scheme. Although I am not a fan of the uniform hair styles/colours they are very well done. I particularly like the bright robes. Perhaps you could drill out the barrels of their weapons? Wouldn't take much touching up either.

    Still Standing,

    For you I will drill out the barrels where I can.

    A pair of Repentia finished.





    Not much else, first Rhino is in it's bath of Simple Green. Seems my beloved Simple Green has changed and now there are several varieties...which is causing issues as the type I selected does not seem as powerful as the old stuff...the Rhino might need to sit for a few days instead of one.

    The Repentia look great. I actually used 10 in a game today. They got charged by a Wraithlord and died. At least they caused a wound on it. Anyway.... keep them coming!

    Re: Captain Brown's Sisters of Battle Painting Log

    Thanks, I am afraid my unit will be rather small, as I only have 9 models including the Mistress...speaking of the Mistress, I did not like the model and found it seems so different from the other models.

    So off to the bits box and an old broken Escher figure suddenly became the new Mistress of Repentia. Just wires added where the broken swords once sat and some Green-Stuff over them.





    Working on the last two Repentia today and hope to have the whole unit up for tonight.

    Thanks Seville,

    Got two more Sisters Repentia finished so here they are:





    And here is the whole unit.



    Perhaps a little small, but they will draw lots of fire.

    Now I am going to take all the paint off the second Rhino.

    I think you are the fastest painter I have ever seen! They look great, and I think the Esher ganger is a great idea! You know in the new book 10 is the max size for Repentia anyway? So you're only two off max!

    Re: Captain Brown's Sisters of Battle Painting Log

    The Repentia were really, really easy, there is almost nothing to paint. Flesh tone, loin cloth, head scarve, big sword and some leather straps.

    The Sisters take a little more time. One problem my army has is that with the change from the Witch Hunters List to this pure Sisters List is that my Command Squad is no longer viable and I need a Canoness...

    I have this figure sitting still in it's blister:



    I am a little worried about the Command Squad, I don't really have too many Sister's left and have no idea how I would track down more (other than eBay) as just about every shop has gone to "finecast".

    Still working on the Canoness, but in the meantime as I never like to leave a post without some sort of photo, here is the group of Seraphim I have already painted.



    I have about 12 more models sitting around, looking for some paint so they will likely be my project coming up, unless I get distracted of course.

    Thanks, touched up another model quickly, a Priest figure from my old Inquisitor Retinue.




    Got another Canoness model to work on tonight, but this is the original one with the flamer/bolter combi weapon and Icon.

    Your SoB are pretty. I like the well-executed 'classic' colour scheme and I'm a big fan of the old Mk1 Rhinos. I think those ones you have are the original Immolators without the Inferno Cannon turrets.

    Don't give up on the weird and wacky units - I'd love to see your zealots!
