Welcome to Librarium Online!
all the sisters of battle look the same! they hav the same faces and EM paint them th same with th same hair colour and stuff like that. Does evry1 do that?
Well, with the regulation SOB haircut, of course they all look similar in the metal. Its up to the modeller to paint them so that they all have a little individuality. The Cannoness has salt-and-pepper hair, for example, while the rest are blonds, brunettes and redheads. I change the hair color for each model by adding some paint to my "hair" paint pot each time. Sometimes, the color gets a little brighter, sometimes a little darker, a little redder, etc. With this many models, a lot of the hair looks similar, but if you check, they're all different.
For a while, I was converting my Sisters of Battle from Dark Elf Witch Elf models with bolters, covering their bikinis with sculpted whipped cream.
It took too much work, so I stopped after a few, but they look great, and are quite original. I just said that the beauty of the Sisters was so great that enemies were hesitant to shoot at them (hence the 3+ armor save hehe).
They were pretty hot looking, who doesn't want gun toting women in whipped cream armor?
The point is- with some work, you can make an original looking force
A thing I don't understand is that Space Marines all look the same and nobody cares!!! The Sisters are so pretty and they do have so many details to make the difference....
the word is regimented, for a reason
Everything you have been told is a lie!
Cheredanine: I've always heard that as "Its called a uniform for a reason."
Seems to me all of the SOB looking like the same hot chic with different color hair is a good thing..imagine and army of Hiedi Klums with different color hair.Then again what do i know..I'm just a stinkin' noob wanker
I go with darker and lighter flesh tones myself. I will also coler code my squads by their role. The infantry have black armor with red dress's and shoulder pads. The saraphim have black armor with Blue shoulder pads. Sister Superiors have a white stripe on their robes and their shoulder pads are white also. Celestians have black armor and white for their bads and robes. Also right now IM building a new group of sisters I want to deploy as either celestians, or another sisters of battle army entirely. They are going to be the Irish bregade!!! snot green armor with dark blue robes and shoulder pads. Their skin will be fair and their hair will be blazing orange. (all this so that I can shout "HAROOO" during my battles )
Irish brigade..for some reason i picture molotovs and empty beer cans :blink:
I soemtimes add some greenstuff to make hair extensions or to add extra detail on some of my models. Painting the hair with streaks also add's a bit of individuality. Each squad also have slightly different armour colours r.g. my retributor squad has flames on their cloak, my dominion squad has animal print and so forth.
