Recently, I got my GF a present, a Sister of Battle that I painted to look like her, in my SM army's colors. Of course, she wants me to use the mini-her in battles. I was just wondering if I could use the counts as rule to say that the model is a chapter master or chapter captain equipped with a bolter. Theres not much i can do to the model since it's metal and already painted up.

If you want to use the model in official tournaments, you'll have to clear that with the organizers. If the model is equipped with the same options of a captain or master, you can came up with some fluff to explain it and it should be fine.

On friendly games, I wouldn’t have a problem with it at all.

My GF has made her own and woe betide me if I don't use it in friendlies.

Looks nothing like my marines and is thoroughly equiped in a manner you just can't explain. Things like a sweety dispenser on its front so the marine can chow on strawberry shoelaces as it kills the infernal enemies of teh Emperor. Proof mankind doesn't understand women kind right there! ;-)

So what do I do? It's an objective marker. Explained how that is even better than a playing piece cus it means both armies are fighting over here piece. She loved it. ;-)

Keep it clean gents.

I was considering that you could have the sister be a sternguard sergeant. Maybe your sternguard are an actual deathwatch team, and she's the inquisitor leading it?

Justice, that's actually a really slick idea.

Praxis, read "deathwing" there's a story about a female callidus assasin that becomes part-genestealer. Perhaps a counts-as broodlord? Or heck just paint a carnifex pink with flowers for her :silly: .

Thanks for the info:)

Its kind of funny, everyone here is saying how sweet it is, ect.. and all my friends who don't play 40k give me a funny look when I say that I gave her that. She loves it of course, she thinks that all the little guys fighting is cute, haha.

I love girls and all that, but they are a different species. When i showed her the completed Ironclad dreadnought she got me for my birthday, she said
"Arrrr, is'nt that cute ?"

Its because they dont get why you like the game. Where as your misses either puts up with it or thinks its a cute side to you. i.e. she usually dont understand why you play (just like your friends) but she likes the passion you have for it

my misses would not like a painted model, she would prefer shoes

I think that was a great :)female-fighter:cute) idea just try to use the model as many times as You can!

I would say (that`s what I do with my canoness) just count as an Inquisitor or even canoness, can be HQ or Elite whatever better for Your list. Better to take a look on the WH foru, as a canoness maybe is not that fragile as she looks, Faith points etc I am not sure about the female space marine... I don`t think that any kind of fluff will be accepted in a tournament. In friendly games... anything can be accepted (even female SM captain)!
The objective marker is very good idea.



I am lucky enough that no designer can make a mini that is so pretty to remind me of my wife :p

I guess your wife must also read LO you old smoothy!

Not convinced my wife would be hugely excited with a figure... having said that she is starting to read more and more fantasy\vampires etc.. hmmm.
