Hi all! I've been a long time lurker on the forums here, and can think of no better time to start a log for my sisters of battle army. I am especially inspired to paint due my team's adepticon plans. We're doing four militant branches of the imperium: Space Marines, Imperial Guard, Inquisition, and Ecclesiarchy.
Many folks are greatly dissapointed by the new WD codex and there are definately some areas that could have been much improved on, however, I find myself very satisfied in the sheer amount of stuff I could cram in lists and in the glorious variety of units I have in any given list. In many 1850pt cases, I have battle sisters, retributors, dominions, death cult assassins, crusaders, at least one member of the ecclesiarchy, saint celestine, rhinos, a variety of immolators, exorcists, in some cases I used repentia. Holy hobby oppertunities batman!!

Here's my test models and what I've been working on:
