I play mechanized with a few squads on foot to hold objectives. My canonesses always have retinues (I can't be bothered to model a jumppack canoness anyway). I love immolators.

The order is called "The Order of the Evening Star".  The evening star is Venus, which is the first "star" that you see at night on Earth. They aren't based near Earth though. The standard battle sisters are colored with red/yellow which matches sunset colors.  The elite battle sisters (celestians and seraphim) are colored darker (black/blue/purple with gold/white trim) to match twilight colors. As a whole, they try to encourage and strengthen the church wherever it appears to be on the decline, so they travel a lot.  This sort of goes with the order name, as wherever the sun sets on the faithful (figuratively) they will be quick to carry/administer the torch of the Emperor's glory.

Additionally, I have a squad of meltagun dominions with an immolator, two squads of retributors (mm and hb), celestine, and a few extra ladies who are in the process of being painted and rededicated to squads, perhaps when I pick up another sister superior and rhino. These models are not all painted/based though. It took a while to figure out what combinations of armament worked best for my playstyle, so I accumulated lots of extra models for different weapon options in units.

The cool thing about the sisters is that you can start collecting them as allies to your main force so you can start playing with them right away. Then, once you've caved in and decided you have to field an exorcist, you throw in all the chips and play pure sisters.

Here's some of my own stuff. Please pardon the crappy photography:


My Sisters of Battle (Retributors not shown):



From another angle:




Two Canonesses, plus Imagifer (who is still a little WIP):




Inquisitor and some of her retinue:




Sister Superiors (bad photo quality, sorry):




And various shots of my Zealots, many of whom still need work:








BTW, I'd like to comment that I really like a lot of the minis that have been posted thus far, especially those of AfrikProphet, Killersquid, Gornon and Objectionator and CheesyRob. Great stuff, guys.

Well done on the politically correct Sisters, PIN_H34D. How did you manage the skin tones? I find that I can never paint dark skin well (as you can see in my pics).

u just use varying tones of citadel paints: scorched brown, dark flesh,tallarm flesh, and elf flesh... seeing as that i suck at dry brushing i just under coat in white primer then put a thin layer of the skin color of choice, then a nice spray sealant...

the main problem i have in the eyes... i wish i could do eyes, hell i have a hard time just doing black dots...lol let alone real looking eyes... tho i wish i knew how

I feel you.  It's just not worth it, IMO.  Due to a human's ability to pick out eyes so easily, any mistake of the eyes is instantly noticeable, making the unit look less well done and somewhat creepy or inhuman.  I just go with the Roman statue blank eye look.

Looks solid to me, I like it, and I like your trophy rack idea, too.  Rubs some salt into the wound.   :)

Here are two WIP squads that I finally think are decent enough to put up on the intertubes.

first up is my seraphim squad. i need to put them on lower bases and do some more detailing and skin highlights on them. I'm holding off on putting the jump packs on untill I figure out how I am going ot mount them on there new bases. They are just too tall at the moment and tall T3 figures don't last very long in these true line of sight days.



I am debating doing the teeth of the chainsword a metalic blue or red.

here is the rest of the squad minus one of the flamers that broke off her base



up next is the first of my rasta themed IG. It seemed a natural fit for elements of a prophetic, icon loaded religious tradition to morph in to the cult of the emperor. now I just need to find some stencils of Haile Selasi and Lions of Zion for the vehicles.

Pictured is the command squad for my first inducted guard platoon. I only have the base colors and a bit of drybrushing done but they are shaping up nicely.



the ill fated test mini (why did I do that green inkwash!)


I green stuffed hats and dreads to make the Tanith models fit the theme. I think I might toss in some of the new Catachans for variety. They don't look as grossly steroidal as the older plastics.



Here is a view of JO Tosh. I used the Dorden Tanith fig for him. I think of all of the Tanith minis it's the most expressive and realistic. The dreads were greenstuffed and I am going to redo the paint. I wanted to give them a sun bleached red look but I think I was too exhausted by the time I got to it so it just looks like a smear now. but still not bad for the first time Green stuffing hair.





enjoy!

So far your squads are looking pretty good, AfrikProphet. I rather like the idea of a Rasta-Guard army (I think it's a theme that's been touched on before in the "Show you IG army" thread). I look forward to seeing further progress on your army.

I like the green and silver.  It looks well together, and makes me think of Spring.  Snow laced with new green and all that.

Very nice.  Is that a copper color you used for their armor?

no i actually painted boltgun silver then washed it in red..

my army colors are red armor and white robes, so i whanted them to have the same thing but look different, so i think that works
