I'm looking at a few possible armies to start, and Witch Hunters are high on my list. The only problem is, I HATE the default SoB model for a few reasons.
The boxes come with things you don't need or want and they're pretty expensive. Those two things make getting a decent infantry army very pricey and you have leftover useless models.
I'm not the best painter, and the sisters models have a nice amount of detail, being metal. They also have un-helmeted heads which I'm not fond of.
The cost and inability to really paint them is dissuading me from this army, so I was wondering if there was a conversion possible that would satisfy tournament regulations, while not leaving left over models. This would preferably be plastic.
The first thing I thought of was Marines without the backpacks and maybe some green stuff to make them more female, but that seems pretty lame.
Any ideas? I'd like to play this army if I could remove those 2 major roadblocks. If there's already a thread on this, please post it, I have to leave soon so I didn't have much time to search. Thanks.
Astartes armor is a bit too bulky to be converted to sisters of battle IMO. You could probably go to ebay to get the part you want and not have to dead with the unhelmeted heads.
How dare you speak out against LO! I shall beat you with a giant inflatable duck and then ban you to the lowest level of hell! ~Karmoon

It's not really a part issue, it's the entire model. The cost of even ebaying selective models would be high and tedious, especially buying helmeted SoB with Bolters. A total model swap is really my only viable route.
Well, you have put across a tuffy, but here is my idea of what you might like. Just use guard! I'll put it a better way, if you want to use cadians, armed with bolters from the space marine range and maybe scout weapons aswell. Fluff wise, the force could be just be a fanaticaly religous guard, and if you want call them brothers of battle. Just putting in my 2 cents.
1st Combined Regiment. Contains Tallarn,Cadians, Catachans,Valhallan,Attilan,Armageddon Steel Legion and Vostroyan. Most Kills in one turn: 98 space marines and 6 rhinos with only the stompa's Gatla Gun (only that)
That might work, kind of iffy on the WYSIWYG aspect though, since flak armor isn't power. I'm going over all the GW model ranges and ntohing is jumping out at me. Really wish they'd just remake the army.....
Got an option, but your not gonna like it...
Basically do a plastic bitz hunt on ebay or sites like Battlewagon Bitz, the female eldar torso looks about right for a sister, could really use all the eldar bodies and just use GS to make the *ahem* 'lady parts' and robes.
As I said, this isnt the best option as it involves a bit of money. For helmets, if you like the Sabbat pattern helmets of the SoB could again order a heap of plastic ones from the Immolator kit.
Good luck, you got me stumped too beyond a massive bitz raid or total GS construct
Yeah I'm pretty sure it's not gonna go anywhere >< Oh well they should re-do the Codex in like.....5 years.
