    Sisters of Battle Land Raider

    I had a lot of fun putting this tank together for my Order of Heaven's Flame Sisters of Battle Army. Technically, it's the Inquisitor's transport, but I've built it as if it were a proper part of an Adepta Sororita Priory. (And why not? The church has plenty of money to spare.) The first thing to do was to give it Sisters crew, and change the technology style from cybernetically linked turrets to manned (womaned?) turrets. I wanted it to be a chapel first and a warmachine second, so I expanded the interior capacity accordingly, so that it looks like there could be a full chapel inside. This included swapping out the ramp for proper chapel doors. I made the turret wings on the side large for several reasons. I wanted it to look like the capacitors for the lascannons were housed in the wings, not the interior, I wanted the tank to have the footprint of a Crucifex, which is the sacred symbol of the Order of Heaven's Flame for Saint Margareite, who was crucified by the Arch-Warlord Kazini Dax of the Word Bearers, and I needed to make them strong enough to withstand kids picking it up without permission.
    I play in a lot of tournaments, so the Organ on the back is largely decorative. I imagine it filling the air with the sweet melody of faith and providing anti-aircraft support or long range artillery fire or any number of other important battlefield functions that 40K ignores the effects of.

    It's pretty gaudy (has a lot of stuff on it) but that is intentional. Playing Sisters of Battle means never having to say, "That's a little over-the-top." It's complete except for the clear plastic windows on the three turrets. Those I'm leaving off till later to make it easier to paint the gunners.

    Enjoy.

    That is so awesome in so many ways... Drools... Can't wait to see that painted!
    I would so totally steal that idea for my sisters, but I don't want the Inquisitor. Nonetheless, A+++ fine job.
    I'm trying to catalog every song with a reference to yetis or Sasquatch. Please help.

    I like it! I'd also like to see the face of the person you play when you set that down.

    "What's that?"

    "Oh that? Just a land raider."

    I admire the ingenuity, but there is waaaay too much going on. Maybe it'll come together better when it's painted.

    Aren't all sisters models a little over the top? This is an awesome application of the sisters models. I absolutely LOVE the penitent engine riders strapped to the tread covers. This is a wonderful model, fits very nicely with the sisters range.

    This thing is full of win. I'm normally not a fan of the walking/rolling cathedrals. Unlike the rest of the SoB fans out there, I think it IS possible to go over the top, but you stay just inside the line. Good stuff! I can't wait to see this behemoth painted!

    LOL, full marks on hysterical bits use, i may think it's too much, at the very least it's an idea executed to it's full extend! Zema approves.
    Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
