As promised we continue the look at the Sisters Battle Box, this time we are looking at the boss lady and the Seraphim.
The Canoness, is a lovely model she is obviously monopose. But I certainly think there is some scope for converting even if its only weapon swaps and head adjustments.
Next up we have the Seraphim unit, this go together pretty well and the detailing is out of this world.
The facial expressions are really crisp and the armour detailing is just WOW!
Now the poses are a little limiting, as they are all I assume in graceful landing position. I do wish we had some more (hard with duplicates I know). Hopefully the multipart kit will sort this, as far as conversions go;
If you have the weapons these will be very very easy to gun swap with although the leader model will be a bit tougher as a whole glove would need replacing if dropping the power sword.
Now for the big issue with the kit and probably any new flying kit for GW. the new tiny lipped flight stand.
So the footprint it takes up is tiny admittedly and GW have done a great job of ensuring the kit is not imposed by it. However, if you are wanting to have clear bases you cant glue it to the model and that is the only way to attach it to the model without some chopping and magnets involved.
Likewise painting these before attaching is again that much tougher as there is none of the model balljoint to work with.
In the end I glued and will paint black as I have found this easier for me. As the only other options I can think of be really careful (HAHAHAHAHA), protect the clear plastic, blue tac or glue the girls to a temporary base.
New models are super sexy, who would have guessed right?
Overall though these build easy enough and I think if we see more of the easy build stuff drop on its own rather than in the army box, it is not going to be hard to get your units up to size quickly and with limited converting needed. I think the Canoness would need some more work though to be different, saying that a helmet swap and a boltgun added it would not be impossible to add variety from these minis.
