Sisters of Battle, special weapons



I need lots and lots of special weapons for my Sisters of Battle, here are a small reinforcement. Some are older models repainted and some are newly converted.
I had an Heavy flamer from an Leman Russ kitt that I cut i half and could make two regular flamers out of it.
The meltaguns are from some Imperial Guard or Space Marine kit.

And while painting these I tossed in a Sister Hospitaler in that batch.

Alpha legion Breachers, wip

There is something special about Breachers in the Horus Heresy, 30k. Those big ballistic shields...

I just had to have some for my Alpha legion. The squad is carrying two melta guns and the sergeant have an powerfist. I hope this will give me a nice overall tactical option to tackle a little of everything. The specialist weapons and the sergeants powerfist is glued on with a small drop of superglue so I think I can snap those of I want another loadout in the future.
These Breachers are intended for Zone Mortalis games.

Sisters of Battle Retributors


I got a little new crush for my old Sisters of Battle again.
Here we have some Retributors repainted to my "new" colour scheme... (just switched to this a couple of years ago...)

Unfortunately I was a little lazy when it came to paint stripping of the old miniatures and some of these have a little to many layers of paint on them...





I shot some pictures inside also. They didnt turn out as good as those taken outside but I could as well share those to.

Bedouin Camel Riders for the Crusades

For some time now I have thought about adding more camels to my Saracen force in the Crusader project.
If you think their is hard to find good looking horses finding good looking camels is even harder.

But here I finally have some Bedouin Camel Riders. The miniatures are from Warlord games and are originally intended to be Romans (https://store.warlordgames.com/products/eir-camel-rider-regiment). All I did was to add some plastic arms from the bit box instead and painted them in different colours.
Granted they are a little to well armoured for my liking but they work.

40k battle Imperial guards


Yesterday we had an Imperial guard battle. My friend Marko wanted to borrow my Crassus super heavy transport (transport 35..) to try it out. And I wanted to try out fielding multiples of Storm Chimeras.
Rather quickly I noticed that I had brought the wrong tools for this match, I have so much to learn when it comes to list building. But my biggest mistake was that I didnt play aggressively enough the first turn. All those lascannon wielding Sentinels really psychological hindered my movement the first turn.That hesitance to not throw my men right into the meat grinder at first chance costed my overall game much... Bad Death Korps player bad Death Korps player...


It was a sad sight but I think I have learned some things.
I think the game ended something like 4-16, it really didnt matter. It didnt go to well..








And the driver/controller of the Hades breaching drill will be court-martialed for treason...
At first I was just a bit angry at him  for damaging my commanders Chimera but later when he made the stolen Crassus explode and taking the commanders Chimera and everyone inside out also Im sure that this was more then a mere accident...
