Order of the Sacred Rose - Zephyrim Conversions

I wasn't lazy during the last evenings and went on to convert the miniatures for a Zephyrim Squad for my Sisters of Battle.

Since there will be only "Heavy Metal" Sisters in my army, I was faced with the problem that there are only plastic Zephyrim available. Therefore, I decided to convert some Zephyrimfrom normal, old pewter Seraphim miniatures. Nevertheless, I had to fall back to a few new plastic bits. 

The new Seraphim box contains parts for both types of backpacks (Seraphim / Zephyrim). But you can only build one variant completely. I was lucky and got the leftover parts for the Zephyrim backpacks. With the help of some good old "Oyumaru" aka "Instant Mold", I moulded the missing parts with Milliput.

On three Sisters I had to remove one hand each with a bolt pistol and replaced them with hands holding plastic swords. However, the plastic hands are much more delicate than the ones on the pewter models, so I had to touch them up with some Greenstuff (the rivets on the glove are still missing):

Ready to paint!

Order of the Sacred Rose - Missionary/Preacher aka Redemptor Kyrinov

Since I used Junith Eriutas Body for my Imagifier conversion, I had her hovering pulpit left over. At the same time, I had Redemptor Kyrinov's miniature lying around here for about ten years. I put one and one together... Et voilà!

Order of the Sacred Rose - Repressor Overhaul - Finished

I really have to be careful not to overdo the weathering on my tank models. 😅

Well, scratch-built Repressor is finished and the weathering helps to cover up the building botched work I've done. I am curious how this creation stands up to the original model.

Order of the Sacred Rose - Repressor Overhaul

Some of you might remember my scratch-built Repressor from a few years ago. Due to the lack of a good template I wasn't able to build the typical Repressor shovel at that time. The conversion kit was no longer available via Forgeworld and on Ebay it sold for around € 100 - a bit too expensive for my taste.

In the meantime, however, I got my hands on such a kit and therefore it is time to finally build the typical repressor shovel and paint the Repressor in the Order of the Sacred Rose colour scheme!

1. The rough shape looks good so far:

2. Finer details are added:

 3. Rivets are glued on and gaps are filled:

4. Finished!
