ok, ive finally got around to uploading the pics of the chaos sisters i have done up so far.

first is my cannoness, terminator lord with a simple head swap, im doing her up as a special character for my army, i could probably patch up the paint job a bit more later on as i build the army up and get it painted more.





next and final for now is my veteran celestian, i used the dark angels so that the celestians stand out more from the standered sisters, a head swap and an added banner on the back pack. problem is the sister doesnt feel so chaosy to me :( any ideas on sprue packs or just stuff to do to them?





[edit - forgot to add the pics xD]

I think these guys are crying out for shading/highlighting, but I do like the colour scheme on them.

Its not a bad move to use the regular marine armour as the bases for the Chaos sisters. It is a shame that you dont have that nice SoB curved armour, but this must be a much easier method than grinding off all those inquisition icons.

I agree with count_the_seven that some shading would help especially on the faces. The use of a wash would be the quickest solution. Remember that the face is where peoples eyes are are naturarlly drawn so should be the best part of the model.

I look foward to seeing more of the bad girls.

haha yeah a tad bit of a heretic XD

on the suggestion of the shading and washing chuck me some ideas, im not the best with them as i tend to stick to the apply paint good game paint scheme as im not taht good but im willing to try new stuff :p

@humakt - i only really used the space marines to make the celestians squad stand out :p for the standered troops im using the sisters of battle models, some green stuff on the sholder pads to hide the emblems. only problem is the I dangly think which im just defacing so i dont have to chop and file it off xD (they arnt painted yet, hopefully doing soon :p)

After having a look at my sisters models, the only thing I can suggest is a small powered sander, like a dremel. You could grind it down pretty fast (And then GS mistakes). Or just rejoin the Emperors holy light.

A quick summary of how to use washes, although I am sure better painters can give you better advise.

Once you have painted the base coat and allow this to dry fully, apply the wash to the chosen area and allow it to flow into the recessed areas. Leave this to dry fully. This takes some time, and I normally leave this overnight. Apply a layer of the base coat over the washed are. I will use a thinner coat of paint. Make sure the piant does NOT flow into the recesses. This should give the details on the face some depth.

As much as I dislike the concept of a group of Sisters gone rogue, that actually looks pretty awesome with the horns.

To make them look more chaosy, perhaps you could use chaos backpacks and deface the aquilas.

Did you notice that the standard bearer has an inquisitorial symbol hanging in her bead belt?

I'd ask a chaos player for some spikey bitz. As nice as the models are, they look very clean. If that's what you're going for, that's fine, but a few pointy things are a fast way to get that Chaos look in a hurry.
