|| I wanted my Sororitas to have a bit more detail in
their color schemes. Using outside references (such as the Warrior Nun
Areala comic by Ben Dunn), I came up with the white chest and red vest
pattern that makes these models distinctive but still tasteful (and true
to the traditional red, white and black colors of the Sororitas).
I have used a lot of gold since I think it's a nicer contrast with the
red and white.
|The guns are dark grey (since I can't bring myself to paint a gun red,
and black didn't stand out enough from the base color). I used the white
hair to indicate rank, so the Canoness has a full head of white, where
the Sister Superior (right) has white streaks. I really like the way her
vest came out (my poor eyes).
|| Hair is not something you normally have to worry
about on a model in power armor. I wanted to have a mix of colors, not
just all black. Blonde looks great, but I try not to use it too much. Of
course, no one will argue with a blonde if she has a Heavy Bolter....
| I wanted the Sororitas to look like they've seen action, but
not too dirty. I used a very subtle pink color for their lips. Settling
for a crisp color scheme, I used just a little bit of brown wash on the
cloaks and other details to make them look like a real fighting force and
not just little dolls.
