Start of a new Sisters of Battle Project

Just another rhino, but with the existing immolator and rhino and an exorcist as yet unmade I have a few bits and pieces to customise anther rhino. This time I decided to have 2 cupolas on the top of the rhino with a battle sister firing a storm bolter from one. I used the spare immolator gunner for the figure. Its easier to convert plastic than metal.

Here is it so far :

A Blast from the Past

There are some quite good old models. Do they have a place in5th Ed 40k?. The Arbites models with their carapace armour could be used as veteran Grenadiers? The problem is converting the modern special weapons, basically heavy flamers and meltaguns. Are there any guides out there?

Penal Legion and Steel legion

For now a second squad of penal legion have been constructed from the bits box, while the steel legion paint job progresses. Here is the Steel Legion Command HQ with senior officer on veteran with a sniper rifle, one with a meltagun, one with a grenade launcher and a medic. The paucity of Steel Legion officers left me with the question of how too identify one as a senior officer. This has been done by making his helmet slightly more ornate and adding 2 death heads as rank badges to a side sash painted on his greatcoat.  Simple but effective.

And here are the second penal legion squad, close up and then a long shot

The models are plastic and have been stripped using Tesco's own dettol equivalent. This is quite good with plastic models that have been undercoated with GW white primer. With the black primer is leaves a stick black coating on the model. The guys with the kilts were brettonian archers. All the heads need sanding to leave a bald surface. The Custodians head came from a spare Mordian torso. The expressions on the Mordian Iron Guard is quite ideal for a penal custodian figure.
