Walk with me on this, I've had a visitation …or something

Is there a wargaming requirement for a series of sculpts of Sisters of Battle in undress – not bikinis, or less, nor sexy babes – just something casual?

They are great sculpts anyway but this thought is bugging me, man

Help

I thought … in the future, there was only war?

That what they're wearing is casual?

Showdown Inactive Member05 Dec 2012 4:06 p.m. PST

Well …when you put it like that

That said, for "dress" occasions, I've always thought they would look something like Jellina. (She's the one on top.)

Excuse the pun

Do Space Marines ALWAYS wear that power armor? How many power armored marines can you fit in a mens room? Do they just do it in their carapace? Is there a audience for a calendar featuring Space Marines lounging on furniture in their underwear… playing with kittens… splashing each other while washing their Rhinos?

Showdown Inactive Member05 Dec 2012 5:16 p.m. PST

Yes, Jellina is half-way there. Just add the strawberry-blonde bob cut hair.

But something more 'casual'.

I thought they were nuns. Wouldn't casual wear be some form of a nun's habit?

jpattern2 Supporting Member of TMP05 Dec 2012 8:12 p.m. PST

That's what I'd guess, some sort of habit.

There might be a (small) market for separate female heads with bobbed hair, like the Sisters. Would certainly make it easier for anyone wanting to make some conversions.

Everyone knows SoB in undress would look like a cross between nuns and Victoria's secret :)

And then there's ld4Chan…

How big is the mens room?

Do they just do it in their carapace? Yes. There are filters.

Yes. It will be released next week. Keep checking the GW site for details.

Well, according to Black Library books, they don't always where their armour ;-)

So very true.

Oh for goodness sake, no.

The hair is too long!!

Mithmee Supporting Member of TMP08 Dec 2012 12:31 a.m. PST

Maybe, but they do look good out of of their armor.

Don't you want to confess your sins to both of them?

In private?

I would much rather commit my sins with both of them, in private.

Wouldn't they wear habits like plain nuns.. Just with more skulz ?

There is concept of Sororita of Order something (the one that advises to planetary governors?) in on of the codex, and she looks like Bene Gesserit from Lynch Dune movie.


There are two Sisters miniatures without PA

and

"Do Space Marines ALWAYS wear that power armor? "

No, they take it off for maintenance and repairs and when they have a lot of free time ahead of them. Typically when out of armor they wear a body glove(space leotard) and or robes. They may also wear more formal clothes when rarely forced into diplomatic roles or when serving in an administrative post (Ultramarines and some of their successor chapters may play a direct role in running the worlds of Ultramar).

" How many power armored marines can you fit in a mens room? "

Are there dangerous heretics or Xenos in the men's room? Probably best if the Arbites or local authorities handle rest room incidents

" Do they just do it in their carapace?"

I don't think space marines normally produce much if any waste. They use everything they consume unless they are purging a particularly dangerous toxin or their implants start to malfunction. Even then most of their excretion is probably done as sweat.

Wolfblade has Space Wolves taking off their armor to sleep…but that is only in the confines of The Fang…. I'd imagine they'd continue to wear it even during sleep if they're off-world.
