Very nice! I like the conversions, especially the first superior and Bertha. What is the second Superior wearing on her head? Base and paintjob on the last minis are simple but effective. The blue is a nice tone and there is not too much of it on them. Keep going!

Great job on your augur, and of course the rest of the bunch, well done so far!

I agree with everyone else - nice simple paint scheme on the henchmen, but very effective. Excellent conversions!

The conversions are excellent! I find it amusing that so many people find a way to poach a 40k figure and fit it into their warband.

The painted minis look great, and I think you've done some excellent conversion work to make what I always thought was a rather static range into much more interesting models. Looking forward to seeing the heroes painted!

Thanks everone!

@grimscull: the thing in her hair is a laurel wreath (i dont know for sure if it is the right word)

I added some freehands on the skirts of the henchmen:


And also i painted the hero's:







I painted the augurs skin to look like it's tattooed with holy scriptures.

The Ladies look LOVELY....EXCELLENT skin tones. The freehand throughout the Band is a FINE touch...the Matriarch's book looks GREAT. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Exceedingly good. Continously good colour depth, and different zones of the models stand out without looking awkward. The free hand is very neatly done, and I like the idea of the tattooed augur. Very good looking warband! My favourite is the fourth hero - I have a thing for pointing models... The only thing that looks a bit strange to me, is the size of the warhammers on the hospitaller conversion.

You must have a very steady hand - the freehand looks great! I'm especially impressed by the third henchwoman (the circle with the "M") and the "SIGMAR" around the pointing sister superior's sleeve. Very nicely done sir, now for Big Bertha!

Sisters of Battle i like a lot. Your colors fit quite well and i like how you use green stuff to make some good thinks even a little better. But the best is your augur. I don't want the meet this Lady alone in the dark

Thanks everyone!

I painted up the rest of the models:


some henchwoman with slings


and offcourse Bertha

Now i'm working on some conversions for hired swords. I want to build a halfling, ogre and a dwarf, all looking as sisters!

@folketsfiende: I see what you mean. I used the hammers from the supirior model, mabey its the picture that makes them look big...

VERY COOL minis! I love the way the Ogress has that kettle slung on her arm like a purse. These two should paint up to your usual high standard. What a Face

Hey, great stuff and excellent conversions! It is not an easy task to deal with the limited SoS mini range, what I belive is one of the main reasons, why they are not seen so often on gaming tables. You managed it perfectly.
