    Canoness Conversion

    I've knocked up this canoness to use as part of my witch hunters allied contingent in my guard army. It's made predominantly from a cadian and some fantasy pieces, and yes it is male....

    Opinions, criticism? Sorry for the sub-par photo, alas I am using my phone.

    Thanks is advance.

    But seriously, it looks like a cool idea, not sure what's going on with the clear rod there though, is he standing on it (floating) or on the piece of wall?


    Looking forward to seeing more of this.

    I love the composition, but I want to see bigger wings. I really do like the use of the clear pole as a stand for the dynamic pose. Really good work.

    The idea of the pose was that he's leaping over the wall using the wings, or perhaps landing upon it, the clear rod is there simply to support it, as the contact area between the foot and the wall is rather small.

    @ Arachnid, No pun intended.... Honest.

    I'm with Wawelski on this one - no male-Sisters and no female-Marines.
    However, game purposes he would make a pretty cool inquisitor for them. You could use the Cannoness rules and just fluff him up as an uber-faithful puritan Inquisitor, fanatically loyal to the God-Emperor etc.
    Other than that, it looks like a good model, well done. Although, when you can take pics on a proper camera, a lot more of the detail will come through.

    I think it looks like a solid conversion, but im interested in seeing what it will look like painted. Keep us posted!

    Great conversion, but I'm not sure what to think about the male sister of battle.

    Seconded. Emphasis on "great conversion," though. Rep for you for such an original idea.
    Although...now that I think of it, why not call this guy an Imperial Saint instead of a Canoness? Saints can be either male or female (e.g. Saint Kiodrus was male, as opposed to Saint Celestine or Saint Sabbat), and it would be an awesomely fluffy explanation as to why this fellow is leading Sisters of Battle and Guardsmen (at the same time, no less!). You could still use the rules for a Canoness as well.

    By the way, would you mind telling us what bitz you used to convert this? The sword in particular looks really cool...

    The sword and hand are from the empire battle wizard box, erm.... plasma pistol with a chainsword handle, guard body and arms, the legs are actually a leg each from two different sets to get the pose right, the wings were the hard part, They're scything talons with chopped up pieces of base attached (the only plastic I had to hand), and then a brettonian head to finish it off.

    I Like the idea of having a male saint actually sounds quite cool. I wasn't actually going to use him as a canoness regardless, I've also put together some male seraphim, and I was going to use the two together to represent an inquisitor and retinue.

    Thanks for the feedback people!
