I've been meaning to start a thread of resources on the net that would be helpful for Witch Hunter/Sisters of Battle army generals. So I'm doing it now. Please post any links that you think would be helpful (on the inspiration/iconography/fluff front, not tactica articles and such) and I'll add them to this first post.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Other People's Armies & Their Fluff
Even if you have nothing else to contribute to this list, if you have your army painted and on the web (or know of a nice one that's not here), give us a link so we can all look at each other's work and be inspired...
Agis Neugebauer's Sisters of Battle: really beautiful work from a pro painter. His idea of using cherub models to represent faith points is intriguing.
BYMTL's Sisters of Battle: A pro painter demonstrates their work.
Paul Waite's Witch Hunters: One of the armies he plays at the (UK?) gaming club The Dragon's Tears. Have a look around their site, besides some nice looking armies, they have a nice scenery collection.
Hello Kitty Sisters of Battle: is awesome, so deal with it. Any one who objects to this wonderfully hilarious army just wishes they'd thought of it first. IN THE GRIM DARKNESS OF THE FUTURE THERE IS ONLY HELLO KITTY.
Jackson Kramer Buildings: Check out the Sisters of Battle shrine and the chapel. Then check out the rest of his site... not a bad painter, although the Witch Hunters are under represented.
Keepers of the Faith: nice site patterned of the original Sister's codex. Has a nice gallery (don't miss the St. Katherina Cathedral). The site is navigated by clicking on the icons at the bottom.
Necromundicon: A really amazing site--the figures are nice, but this guy makes the best scenery I've ever seen on the net. Don't miss his Fire & Fog and Snow pages, not to mention the pages on "Gothic" scenery.
Simon Shepard's Order of the Ebon Chalice : photo album of one of the canonical orders.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Fonts & Editable graphics
Everybody needs a place to start... these links are to sites where you can download building blocks for your own designs, whether they be fonts, free clip art, etc.
Alphyn Press -- medieval/gothic caps sets with some glyphs & dingbats. One is called Witch Hunt so how could it not be included? Shareware, PC (TTF should work with Mac OS X).
Fleur de Wee -- dingbat font with many versions of our favorite symbol. Free, Mac & PC.
Google Image Search: Fleur de lys
Newcastle -- Blackletter font "loaded with a nice mix of propaganda elements, flourishes and heraldic doo-dads, including griffons, lions, swashes, crowns and wings." Might be more appropriate for the Guard, but it's Free, Mac & PC.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Visual & Fluff Resources
Images that just look cool. Use them for inspiration, the basis of your fluff, remix them for your banners, whatever.
The Life of King Edward the Confessor: images of pages from a 12th Century manuscript, it might be good for source for banners, scenery fluff, etc.
The Malleus Maleficarum (The Witch Hammer): "...first published in 1486, is arguably one of the most infamous books ever written, due primarily to its position and regard during the Middle Ages. It served as a guidebook for Inquisitors during the Inquisition, and was designed to aid them in the identification, prosecution, and dispatching of Witches."
Vylette Fairwell as a Sister: Flickr user Vylette Fairwell in a Warhammer 40k Sisters of Battle dress uniform made for the San Jose WorldCon 2002.
The Witch Hunters: "This is a starting point for historical research into the great witch craze of 1100-1700 AD. And please, don't ask me for spells." Unfortunately, a bit light on the pictures, but interesting reading.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now a surgeon cuts off rotten limbs; and mangy sheep are isolated from the healthy; but a prudent Judge will not consider it safe to bind himself down to one invariable rule in his method of dealing with a prisoner who is endowed with a witch's power of taciturnity, and whose silence he is unable to overcome. For if the sons of darkness were to become accustomed to one general rule they would provide means of evading it as a well-known snare set for their destruction. - Malleus Maleficarum , part III.
Heres the Maciejowski Bible, French Origin commisioned circa 1250
I havent had a chance to go through the whole thing, but it is impressive
And cheers for the other links
Only a few prefer liberty - the majority seek nothing more than fair masters
Good work with the links and all! Rep for you!
