I recently fell in love with the Sisters Repentia models. It's one of the rare times that I actually approve of a scantily clad female miniature in a grimdark-war-all-the-time setting. Perhaps because they don't have DDD breasts and a 12" waist wearing a leather bikini (or no top at all, as is so common) and hefting a weapon three times their weight. These ladies seem like they belong in the 41st millenium, and they're not trying to give me a boner. I'm not about to start an Adepta Sororitas army any time soon, but I must have a few!
If you were me, what would you use them as?
Berzerkers are the obvious choice, I suppose, but damnit if I don't already have ~35 actual Berzerkers, and then a squad of 10 traitor Space Wolves to be Berzerkers/Khorne-marked CSM. All their chains and such lend themselves pretty well to a Khornate/Chaosy theme.
Cultists are another decent option, but at ~$12 US for 3 of them (20% off list price via my friend's store), that's not the most cost-effective option. I also have around 100 DV Cultists already. If I use them as Cultists, maybe I'd just pepper them throughout a unit to give them some more flavor. I suppose this is the most likely use of them.
I'd use them as Possessed, but there really isn't anything Daemonic about them. And any conversions swapping their heads/parts with Daemonettes would sort of diminish what I like about them. Possessed Cultists? I dunno, that might work. They can still be possessed without being mutated. Since they don't have guns, the look could work, too. Or simply Possessed Sisters Repentia, doesn't really require much imagination. A pallid flesh tone, covered in red/inflamed scars and tattoos of the Chaos pantheon. Maybe a purple flesh tone to add some sort of demonic aspect. This would be my ideal solution, because I only have 1 squad of 10 possessed (from the actual kit, off eBay), and a fluffy Crimson Slaughter list could demand at least 20 for a full-blown unit.
Thoughts? Do you think any of my ideas are passable? These bitches are badass
! I need some!
