Default Adepta Sororitas Squad conversion

Hello!

I thougth about making a test squad of my Sisters of Battle, but as I have serious availability problems with pewter miniatures, I had to think about way to go around that problem. So here we are in my first converting thread (though not my first conversion).

Main idea is to get some Dark Eldars Kabalite Warriors:

And convert them (removing spikes, smooth out his armour, add breast, few imperial symbols and give him some REAL gun instead of this shuriken nonsense) to look like that:

As far as i can see the only real problem is to smooth out his breastplate and to create a good looking helm (more like this:

as the sister in example is form Order Hospitaller)

What do you think about my plan? Any tips, ideas?

Seems realistic. Remember some of the Kabalite warriors are actually female. You could also look into the dark elf warrior box as they have some good female torsos.

As far as helmets go, doesnt one of the sister tanks have a plastic crew-woman?

I did exactly this a little while ago, it worked out fairly well all things considered.

I really didn't put a whole heap of work into it so I am sure with a bit more effort it could make for and really neat conversion.

I'm not 100% certain but I think that Silvertabby used a Dark Eldar Kabalite for her Silver Golden Daemon winner.

I was previously thinking of doing this as a sort of a side project, the helmet from the immolator set was going to be my choice for heads, if I could get my hands on a lot of them.

Problem is with the quantity, I would need at least 30 heads so yeah... buying one Immolator after another would be quite expensive i think

Could you Use thin plasticard cut out each side of the helmet as in the visor then mount in some greenstuff to clean it up after with detailing etc? may be cheaper but you could always use SM helmets and change then up! Great idea here... I always liked Sister but i have enough on my plate at the moment!!!

You could probably cut the basic helm down so that it's more cube like than cone like and use green stuff to put a T like visor on it to make it look more sister of battle like.

Now I'm thinking about corrupted sisters of battle devoted to slaanesh..so many possibilities

I dont have enough Spcae Marines helmets (used them all sadly), but I have whole bunch of spare Chaos Space Marines helmets (those with stupid, bull-like horns) so after some work I think I can use them.

Words_of_Truth - Just stick to Dark Eldar Wyches as Slaaneshi cultist - less work and is in codex already

Only thing to note is the bolters. Using the Dark Eldar or even Eldar bodies and the Space Marine bolters look ridiculously big. Might look and see if some of the Forge World bolters are smaller/slimmer.

Otherwise, the female DE bodies are a great place to start.

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?
