Here be count as..
"..One army to rule them all! And in the Count As darkness bind them.. "
Sisters are gorgeous models.
Sisters are all metal.
Sisters are frakkin' expensive. (£)
Screw that. Instead, let's just play with space marines as Sisters..
Fluff justification required? No. Frak off.. oh ok then:
Fluff - during the Age of Blood (read your fluff) and crazy ass Vandire Gorge (or something) is head of both the Administorum and Ecclesiarchy (or something) he used an elite force of fanatical warriors to hunt down and slaughter anyone that opposed the word of the Emperor (or Vandire for that matter)..
After Sebastian Thor ended the Age of Blood, he outlawed all "men from bearing arms" in the Eccliasarchy..creating the Sisters Soriatorumumumim and ended the Band of Brothers.. but not before an elite force of crack commandos escaped from a maximum security imperial prison.
Now, if you can find them and if your faith in the light of the Emprah! is waving, maybe you can martyr yourself to ..... the Band of Brothers!
EDIT: The above may not be factually or fictionally correct, but I don't give a fuuuuuuccck! yea boi!
Let me explain...I want to "run the gauntlet" with ALL tournament armies as practice.. Sisters, despite being almost universally denounced as 'utter turd' are still appearing at tournaments and it is very important that you do not allow yourself to be thrown off by random match ups..
There are only about 5 pages in the codex, such a complex and intricate work of art it is.. so there is little difficulty in discerning the 'top' builds.. We've looked at that before (see here) and I basically just wanted to show off a cheeky conversion for the Exorcist Missile Launcher based on the forgeworld model.. as well as a few kit bashed marines (15) I have built to represent the holy tri-fecta of Dominions, Sternguard Vets/HG and Tactical Marines..
First up we have the Exorcist Conversion:
Very simple to do and will be in your bitz box... Provided you run a multitude of different armies...lol... we all love plastic crack..
Either side, stick on the Rocket Pods from the Valkyries that you all run as Vendetta's (anyone use a Valkyrie?) ... stick this pivot piece on to the housing that joins the top of the Defence Line housing...and boom..you can stick this bad boy on top of a rhino...voila! so easy..
Looks quite cool though.. I guess it would be even easier if you had Whirlwinds or whirlwind pieces...
"..One army to rule them all! And in the count as darkness bind them.. "
So Dark Angel bits, Black Templar bits, Blood Angel bits and a few marines in skirts later... Band of Brothers are created!
Oh and sorry if pics are crap..
