Default Order of the Castis Fortis- Sisters Army

Finally got some pictures of the Sisters of Battle army I'm hurriedly working on to take to the UKGT Final.

Parts of the army WIP


Celestian Squad


Battle Sisters


Exorcist WIP


Inquisitress


Callidus and Saint (Canoness) WIP


What do you think?
The high glare/shine is due to a heavy use of varnish- metal models are notorious for chipping just by looking at them. It's not as obvious when looking at them directly, rather than in pictures.

They look quite nice, but some washes would be great.
And I would think this belongs in the "Showcase" section.

They do look nice, but I am afraid it belongs in another forum. Moved.

Your figures look a little clumsy up close, I think it's mostly because the white looks too thick, but white is surprisingly hard to do. The shading helps a great deal though.

I really like the vehicles however, it's a very striking colour scheme, crisp and clean. Maybe they ought to be dirtier though? Judging by the bases the ground is loose dirt, so perhaps drybrushing some graveyard earth onto the vehicles would be an idea? Love the massive weapons on a couple of them. I'm not too clued up of Sisters of Battle, are those your own version of Exorcists, or is that a standard vehicle I'm not aware of?

P.S. - You do know you can seal them with matt varnish don't you? You needn't use gloss.

Yeah, the white is a little thick.
Love the tanks though. Sweet work.

Ouch, harsh honesty.

I'll make one excuse- the camera was in Macro mode and seems to 'fill in the blanks' if you will. It seems to colour in a bit, I swear in person the models don't seem that cartoony. The varnish coat also reflects worse on camera than it does in person.


Excuses aside, yes White is a biatch to paint.

For the vehicles, it's loose dirt, etc as you say. Though I figured it would only hit the underside, the tracks, loose bits on the doors and ramps, the rear where the tracks lift up into the tank, etc. So I concentrated 'dirt' there. Leaving the rest to be sparkling clean like only fanatical warriors keep their vehicles.

And yeah, they are Exorcists. Far cheaper to use my IG mortars (like my IG will ever use them), and I'm really not a fan of the 'Church Organ' approach.

Ahhh I have a sisters army, and I must say that is beatiful white work. I have a orangish redish theme.
