Topic is the content. Is there any background other than the onlinecodex where I can find some hints about names used in SoB-armies?
The 2nd Ed. codex is the most complete SOB resource I've found. It has a lot of material on the structure and backgound of the six main branches of the SOB forces. For my army, since I've decided to give it a desert theme, I've decided that they're an off-shoot of the Order of the Bloody Rose that's established a convent on a desert planet (don't know yet if I'll have the cheek to call it "Arrakis"). I intend to call it the Order of the Desert Rose.
Uniform colors are derived from the Afrika Corps., and vehicles will be painted in desert camo. In addition to regular iconography, all vehicles will have a palm tree with an imperial eagle in the center. Can you guess my opinion of the Imperium?
For my sisters, I based them on the Order of Our Martyred Lady. I have based them on a world in the Ultima Segmentum, known as Erine IV. They are the seventh preceptory (7th Company), and have established a Schola Progenium, as well as an Abbey-Convent. I have built my sisters to incorporate the Famulous upgrade in the HQ squad and have the use of Storm Troopers and a Chimera.
I have mainly stuck with the Order of Our Martyred Lady, but hope to change to the Order of St Katherine the Martyr, a variant on the Martyred Lady Order.
OK as varrious people have said, there are 6 main Orders, they are listed under Sister Mel's Trieste on nuns with guns on this site, the colour chemems are available at various place
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I also have this within SOB Compendium Part 1 article here: http://www.librarium-online.com/articles.p...tion=show&id=93
It's very fun to make up your own Order though!!! Names are just creative images or religious furvour.
One of my non mainstream armies is called Order of the Flaming Phoenix.
