I have been thinking about incluiding some battle sisters, but i dont like the models at all.
What i do like is ath they have power armor, but arnet giant like space marines, any way does any one have any ideas or pics of "guardsmen in power armor" like the sisters are "kind of"
basically a sister type model, but less goth and more rugged looking
Unless you want to do extensive Green Stuff work, there's nothing. GW makes very few female models, mostly stuff for their smaller games. Those have almost no armor, so you'd have to model it all on.

Hmm you could look into the dark elf/high elf ranges there might be something inthere that you could grrenstuff some armoured boobs onto, maybe?
If they need not be female models, you could take ordinary Kasrkin and paint their armor plates bright silver. Then get some thin wire from the hardware store and run wire down their legs and between their plates. You might try putting Marine backpacks on them for a power supply, too--the Chaos Marine backpacks look like they could also be a grav-chute backpack. That would make them look 'tech' enough to count as power armored.
The only alternative is browsing the miniature lines of Reaper Miniatures. If you only want one squad then this will give you a great-looking bunch of elite models but it gets cost-prohibitive in bulk. Some of the models come 3-per-blister but they are usually too thin to blend in with GW minis.
I guess you could also try Pig Iron miniatures but they sort of lack the bulk powered armor should have as well. There's nothing in the Dark Elf section that would help, I'm afraid--they're lightly armored or cavalry, and I don't think the Fantasy look will match 40k.

You could always use Marine models but make them 'smaller'. Maybe leave the shoulder pads off and file down some armour plates. Changing the heads with Kasrkin/Cadian heads would work too.
If you could get hold of some Rogue Trader Marines they'd be perfect as they're tiny compared to Modern day Marines.
lol, I actually wasnt going for the female models, It is the stat line i want,
the only thing i like about the sisters of battle model is that it is not bulky like regular power armor.
this may help:
my army is loosly based off the game fallout 3, jsut loosly, but I Think a unit of brothers of steal with their higher quality guns would be a neat center peice for an army, a true elite section kind of. so for this I would use teh batel sister role, so techniqually allies form sisters of battle.
An idea I had today was regular SM scouts armed with bolt guns, mabey with cadian head swaps? and all the space marine insigna (if any) filed off?
Scouts should work, but you may need to add some armour to their legs if you want counts-as power armour. Some backpacks could help too; just make sure to file off some of their backplates.

Ok, well the conversion im doing is
- SM scout legs/body
- reg. SM bolter arms/ boltgun
- Cadian head (vox) and helmet-less
turns out fairly well, the back side does not flow, I may add a blade to all the models though.
That is actually almost exactly the way I went, though I run my Scouts as is, and only modded a Heavy Bolter scout with a Heavy Flamer instead, and swapped a bolter for a flamer on one other. Check out this link on page 2 for a picture:

Also Shadow Forge miniatures.
Both these make decent scifi female figures that could be converted a little into 40k.
