First off I am far from being an expert painter but these sisters figures seem like abnormally difficult to paint. around 7 years ago I played WH:FB and played Dwarves and Slannesh Chaos. But these sisters are hard. Anyway im thinking White, Red, Gold theme or maybe White, Violet, Grey. I know I want White to be a prominent color in my army.
Also |I would like to see some galleries of sisters so I may get some ideas. Anyone have any websites that come to mind?
I first made mine white armor, blue robes. But that just proofed a pain in the ass so i stripped them and went for bone armor and purple robes.
My advice is: use the foundation paint for white and keep the number of white layers down and always use water with the paint. And my second nugget of wisdom is: make the armour a singel color and the robes 1 single color, the sisters are quite lithe so there isn't a lot of armour to make variations on, not like space marine armor on which quartered patterns work.
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

The Dutch Legion
You could find some on Bolter & Chainsword. I've seen people post theirs on Deviantart too.
Also, try using this to test the color scheme: The Bolter and Chainsword : Sister of Battle Painter

Zemaphore you have great choice in colours . I tend to include purple and bone on most of my models, regardless of army. The sisters stuff I have has purple armour with bone robes, and gold trim, looks rather good if I say so myself :rofl.
i painted my sisters white power armor purple tabards with silver/gold trim.... i dont suggest that if your novice since white is really hard to work with and the models are very busy. the way i did it was i primed white, inked the whole thing with 25%water 25% black ink 50% water to give me a nice smooth base coat so i can start building the white.... took many water downed layers of a vallejo paint... i forget the name but was like an egg white not pure white but kinda off white then i did some watered down skull white to bring it up to white... got like 2 squads done and now that army is on the back burner haha... white is a tough scheme good luck!
