Mordheim 2019: Sister of Sigmar WIP

All progressions from a higher to a lower order are marked by ruins and mystery and a residue of nameless rage. - Cormac McCarthy

Earlier this year, Eric showed some initial models for a Roadside Picnic inspired undead warband, for the upcoming Mordheim 2019 event. Not content with building just one warband, I resolved to create a group of Sisters of Sigmar. When approaching creating a Sisters of Sigmar warband, I decided a complete overhaul of their design was necessary. The original Sisters of Sigmar models have not aged very well. They have a very caricatured Viking-warrior/nun aesthetic, complete with metal belly plates and starched robes. They are also posed very awkwardly, with nearly every one of them holding their oversized weapons aloft in one hand and a raised, clenched fist for the other. For my redesign, I wanted to go for a hooded/cloaked wanderer look. This warband has likely been through the ringer and are used to roughing it in the wilderness. While I am only at the work-in-progress stage on the first model, I wanted to show some pictures of the model and see what people think.

Follow us on Twitch at between_the_bolter_and_me

It has been almost 3 years since we started our podcast Dragged into Turbolasers, and almost 6 since the blog itself started. Each of these has been an effort to share our hobby efforts, and also connect with the wider community. Both of these have been an incredible success, with us interacting with many miniature hobbyists from all around the world on a daily basis. It has resulted in some life-long friendships. In an effort to continue to connect with people who love this hobby as much as we do, we are going to try to venture into doing some live streaming on Twitch!
