having a temporary painting block and need some ideas for painting sisters, i mean a colour scheme, something original
thanks for help in advance
Purple looks great for the armour in my opinion. - But use a dark one.
The robes need to be bright so go for a red or a whitey-grey kinda colour.
Well if the ones in the codex don't suit your fancy I'll tell you what i did to see if you get any ideas from that.
Basic Sister: Red cloth with Boltgun Metal, Mythril silver shoulder Pads and Gold weapons and symbols.
With veriations based on the 'rank' of the model.
I undercoated my sisters black, then drybrushed their armour boltgun metal, then washed it with bestial brown, and painted the cloth parts with a mix of goblin green and black.
This made dark clanky looking armour with the dark green cloth actually standing out quite well. Then I painted their skin very pale, washed it with a blueish grey colour, and did their hair dark brown to black. They look like nightworlders, very dark and menacing.
Looks good I think.
I made my Preceptory a branch of the Order of the Sacred Rose, and followed their paint scheme except for the robe: where the canon robe is black, I made mine a very dark purple (nearly black). It has a nice effect.

yeah... i use a sky blue armor... with red robes, white robes, etc... depending on who and what they are (celestians with their hatered have red robes)
When all else fails, burn every one... or missile them back the Golden throne
Evil Beware, we have waffles!
My basic Sisters color scheme is white armour, with red robes and gold highlights. Some variations I've done so far include having my celestians all helemted and painting the helmets gold, and my Seraphim blue robed with silver highlight to differentiate them a bit more. I've only recently gotten really heavy into getting my sisters painted (just finished my Exorcist yesterday, boy was that a task), but I see myself geting my Sisters painted long before the Dark Eldar force I've had for years. However that my simply be due to numbers, I have SOOO MANY Dark Eldar, the thought of painting them scares me...
happiness is a temporary chemical imbalance of the true state of mind
i wanted to do white sisters, though how do you paint your tanks? do you do them all white or do you build up the colours like on the models?? as i didnt want to just leave it white like after white spraying it as i feel it looks cheap, and building up the colours would take a very long time on a mass scale and you probably would be able to see the brush strokes (depending on the strength of the colour)
Don't start with black then. Either start with grey and build up using fewer layers or start white and wash the armour with a watered down grey.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
I'm painting my sisters with orange robes and balck+gold armour. It looks really cool, and it's original. They're the order of the purging flame
