Default Sisters Hair.

Why do the Sisters all have white or at best black and white two tone hair?

i think somewhere theres some fluff that its suppost to be a sign of purity if they dye it, or maybe that was just the players choice. Either way i dont think it would matter that much unless theres something within your own personal fluff to suggest otherwise

Thanks Proccor for the awsum sig

After 10 years of relentless shelling, the hive is reduced to naught but rubble and dust, two years after all signs of life ceased and five years after the hive issued its unconditional surrender.

I dont want to hear any more flashlight joke alright, there just guide lights for the artilery

The white hair could be due to shock.. I'm more interested in why they all look like screaming monkeys. If they ever release plastics of SoB I'll be making an all ranga army.

I don't think there's any particular fluff reason for it. The only suggestions I've ever read is that the white is supposed to represent the traditional Coif (like a nun's habit) that the sisters hospitalier wore and that's the inspiration behind the SoB.
I'm not sure I hold to that as there are just as many SoB with black hair too.
Perhaps it's something to do with their Pariah gene?!

Source, please? I couldn't find anything on Lexicanum.

I'm tempted to continue Epic Fail's line of thought with the shock-made white hair, but that wouldn't be nice.

I think its because GW thought that these are the two best space nun hair colours in the Imperium. And boy they look hot...

The fool, the coward, and the ignorant proclaim that the warp is a realm of unknowable peril and indescribable terror, that it is the hell of countless ancient myths and legends. This is a lie, told by those whose authority is based on lies, to keep the masses terrified of the unknown. The warp is limitless power and its secrets are infinite; it is knowledge and strength, life and death, and the untapped potential to make and remake worlds. It takes only the discipline and the will to shape it; those who lack that clarity of purpose are liable to be shaped by it instead.

Sister don't have the Pariah gene. Unless were talking about sister of silence during the time when the Emperor was still around and kicking. I don't think all sisters have black or white hair. Sure lots of them do but not all of them.

I have seen plenty with red hair, and a creditable amount with blonde.

Female Pariah. That would be interesting. Would the Necron make her look like a regular Pariah? I can't see why they wouldn't, but then where would hte fun in that be?
