Order of the Sacred Rose - Sisters Repentia

Overall, I'm surprised how quickly I was able to get the Sisters Repentia ready. I like them much better than the Arco-Flagellants I've painted around three and a half years ago. Furthermore, these old miniatures look a bit better with the new, slightly larger 32mm bases. I am glad to have waited such a long time to really get my sisters project going.

Order of the Sacred Rose - Converted Immolator - Finished!

And here is the finished model. I might have overdone the weathering here and there a bit, but it should look alright on the tabletop. The older and newer parts fit together just fine, don't you think?

Order of the Sacred Rose - Converted Immolator

Next up is an converted Immolator for my sisters, which I'm particularly looking forward to painting. But it is no standard configuration. Instead, I flanged the metal components of the classic immolator to the MKII Immolator body and added the new obligatory heavy bolter and added the side plates from the old Exorcist model.

Forgive me Emperor for I have sinned!

Mea culpa.

I could no longer withstand the temptation to buy new models. Therefore, I broke my "pile of shame promise". How did this happen?

The other day, I and my friends were talking about the new edition and the new Crusade game mode. We came to the conclusion that we should try it out and start with a power level of 25 and then increase it steadily. At best, this should then be linked directly to a new army project.

That triggered me and I dug out my box of Sororitas. As with my last two army projects, I will rely solely on the old pewter models wherever possible. Here and there I will, of course, have to scratch build and kitbash some things, with the help of new plastic bits.

I thought about the colour scheme a lot and also painted some test miniatures. I ended up with the "Order of the Sacred Rose". Certainly not the first choice for tournament players and the like, but that's not what I am going for anyway. The "Order of the Sacred Rose" colour scheme can be painted quickly and easily and I find the game mechanisms with that many possible miracle dices exciting. I will try to make the Minis look a bit "grim-darker" than the standard models in the Codex.

Here is my fist small squad of Battle Sisters:
