What do Sisters of Battle wear outside of combat?

I'm trying to design some character but lacking some material for reference. I went ahead and design something based on the power armor, but made with softer materials.

I would love to get more information regarding this.

Looks good. I like the fact that it keeps the armor's robes.
I'd add a chaplet ecclesiasticus around the neck or waist, they're supposed to wear it all the time.
Also, most christian monastic orders wear some kind of hat: cowls with hoods, guimpes, cornettes, mantilles... any kind of veil will do. IIRC it symbolizes the mystic union with god. The brides of the Emperor would probably have something similar (A canoness in the 2nd edition codex had a guimpe)

Add some purity seals and order iconography if you want something fancy, too.
But it depends on how you see the sisters; some RL mendicant orders wore tattered rage that were worn by a long line of previous monks, while some others had more elaborate robes.

>> No.50066023

No, it wouldnt, because they are specifically the milltary branch of the Echlessiarchy. They are first, and foremost, soldiers. And Soldiers cant preform their duty of genociding heretical populations if they are pregnant.

Let me make it clear; The SoB are by and far the most indoctrinated army in the imperium. If they get told to literaly create auschwitz style murder camps, they'd do it without a second thought. And, most likely, SoB get their tubes tied during training, so as to ensure they have no loyalty but to the Emperor and the Echlessiarchy.

Not after the reign of blood, where they indeed served as concubines. Nowadays it's sisters, not daughters or brides.

Anyways, if a sister gets pregnant, she's out of combat duty for something like 2 months (assuming the imperium doesn't need half a dozen forms in triplicate in order to take prenatal leave) and the schola progenium gets a new recruit. I don't see the problem.
The rare 40k fluff about sisters and relationships points to the existence of fornication, afaik.

I think they'd just wear robes, though you could have fun theming the clothing based off of their homeworld or where-ever they find themselves stationed, perhaps a dress uniform.

Part of me thinks they'd want to wear something not so loose and airy though - that way they can do physical exercise or penance without ruining their clothing, or quickly ready themselves for battle in an emergency. It might be yoga pants, or something as simple and widespread as some sort of military uniform, perhaps with a surcoat tossed over it.

Here's a quick pic with all the sisters without powered armor, or with unconventional headgear that I've found. (rpg not included).

Praying, training and attending religious ceremonies. Also bathing. And self-flagellation in power armor tends t be ineffective.
Every imperial sacred place, from cathedrals to small shrines, is supposed to have at least one SoB attendant. Of course it's because GW cannot into numbers again, but there must be some places with sisters maintaining the place. It's gnot gonna be easy if they're constantly in armor.

>Sororitas doing sexy paperwork filling
I'm sure there is a ton of adepts with that exact fetish in 40k.

IIRC SM hypno-conditioning is mainly here to make the additional organs work and insert additional technical knowledge (Minotaurs aside).
I'd say the most indoctrinated sub-faction is the one where the people are so self-righteous that they will miracles into existence, and where the leftovers from the not!hitlerjugend training school can become commissars or assassins.
At least Astartes had a childhood outside of the chapter.

iirc WHFB also had sisters of sigmar.

I don't see a reason why.
It's an inquisitorial sigil, not a symbol of the ecclesiarchy. She's probably sent as a gift by some Inquisitor.

Thinking of penitent engines, I realize that we haven't got new units since the Witch Hunter codex during 3rd edition. It hurts.

>> No.50071871

No no, look more closely at that symbol. The Inquisition I is an I with three lines intersecting through the center. The Ecclesiarchy I has a skull near the top with rays surrounding it, like the Sisters wear as decorations. The Pentitent Sister seems to be wearing a simplified version of the latter symbol, without the skull.

The I symbol is actually fairly common throughout the various Adeptus branches - the Adeptus Astra Telepathica has an I with an eye inside of it, the Adeptus Arbities has an I with a fist holding a scale in it, the Adeptus Custodes has an I with an eagle and thunderbolts.

>> No.50072068

I think this artwork is based upon the official paintjob for the model, which seems to use an inquisitorial symbol. And the missionary has an ecclesiarchy shoulderpad that looks really different from the one on the hood imo.

I guess they could give the naked heretic a spare robe before plugging her to the death machine, but what's the point?

>> No.50072270

I actually picture them wearing something akin to a kimono, but with tighter sleeves and hoods.
That's just me though.

>> No.50072272

I wanna say it's somehow symbolic - maybe taking away the skull shows that she's removed from the Emperor's grace - but that'd just be guessing.

I still can't see why she'd have an Inquisitorial symbol though. It might be a carryover from when Sisters were still the military arm of the Ordo Hereticus, and part of an Inquisitorial army?

>> No.50072447

Penitent Engine pilots are not exclusively sororitas.

Given the requirements for becoming a penitent engine pilot, I doubt very many of them at all are sororitas.

>> No.50072514

It's a big galaxy, there's probably sisters of every style possible in isolated sectors.

It's indeed a model from the witch hunters codex.
IIRC during the elaboration of the codex, penitent engines were supposed to be very dangerous/irredeemable people, like witches and rogue psykers, so they fell under the Ordos jurisdiction.

Arco-flagellants have inquisitorial symbols on their hoods too. Maybe it's just the symbol of the autority that condemned them, and other criminals are branded with the Arbites sigil?

>> No.50072536

Wouldn't a SoB filling the requirements become a Repentia or an Oblatia instead?

>> No.50072574


That's why I never understood why penitent engines were always depicted as having female pilots. Going by lore they're meant to be super bad heretics, which isn't gender specific.

>> No.50072787

Could be, but it still seems odd - the Arco-flagellents are specifically created at the best of the Ecclesiarchy, though the Mechanicus does the real work. They only do it for heretics whose crimes they consider not bad enough to warrant execution.

Lexicanum has this to say, cited from White Dwarf 379:

>Those condemned to pilot a Penitent engines are often individuals who were once seen as pious by the Ecclesiarchy, such as Priests or Battle Sisters. As a result, the Sisters of Battle consider it a sacred duty to witness these great machines in combat, observing the actions of their fallen brethren as they atone for their sins.

So it's still not exactly gender-specific, but Sisters would likely end up piloting a lot of them. Penitent engines are pretty much strictly for torturing the heretic with guilt for their sins and driving them to despair-fueled fury in battle, whereas the Reptentia - for all their suicidal disdain for life - consider themselves redeemable in death and are more revered than hated.

>> No.50072938

But how the fuck do sisters of battle commit such terrible sins of heresy to be condemned to such a thing?

Hell a good chunk of the repentia are either delusional or just failed to achieve an objective in battle.

For what is supposedly the most pious organisation in the imperium, from which only one has ever willingly fallen to chaos, it seems stupid that they can be sentenced for the most foul kinds of heresy possible in such numbers.

>> No.50072979

>from which only one has ever willingly fallen to chaos
This meme again.

>> No.50072988

They probably have extremly anal measurements of sin, technically the bible thinks that wearing clothes woven of wool and linen together is a sin. The imperial dogma followed by the sisters probably also has some equal harsh/dumb rules witch makes "sinners" not lacking in supply.

>> No.50073083

>Praying, training and attending religious ceremonies. Also bathing.


>> No.50073159

There are other kinds of heresy aside from Chaos - the Repentia are mostly made up of those who are delusional or didn't get achieve an objective, sure, but the Repentia's overall purpose is for sisters who fell short of the Sororitas' religious codes. So they didn't pray enough, or do what a proper sister should do, not necessarily heresy.

It might be for having refused an order, for attacking a religious figure they deemed corrupt, allowing a heretic or pysker to alien to live or escape, stuff like that.

>> No.50073333

btw, is there a rule somewhere in the fluff saying that only men can be priests in the ecclesiarchy? I've never seen such a thing.

Funnily, the Imperial Creed is pretty lax, since a galaxy-wide cult means that there are a ton of local variations. Even the rigorous scholas must have different tenants depending on the segmentum they're in.

>> No.50073844

Not specifically, but it could be assumed be part of the Catholic theme. I've never seen a female priest model, or heard of one in the lore - they've all been male. But like you mentioned, there are lots of local variations.

Main reason I brought up the sisters is that it would guarantee some women, a good reason for female pilots, especially if they were fighting alongside Sisters.

>> No.50077216

On a world-by-world basis, sure, but the culture of the Imperial bureaucracy is much more homogenized. Heresy is particularly well defined. My point was that I can't think of anything I've read that would give you the impression having any sex other than hetero missionary with the lights off is a blow-your-planet-up offense in the eyes of the Inquisition. That is absolutely a /tg/ meme.

>> No.50077293

I don't think heresy is all that well-defined; at least according to FFG, it's not that uncommon for different Ecclesiarchy officials to have minor wars with each other over which one is a heretic. The Imperium simply doesn't have the ability to enforce one code for everyone over its vast, poorly-connected territory (seriously, something that I think a lot of people forget about is that 40K has worse communications logistics than nearly any other space-based setting).

Now, in the Inquisition's case, sure, there'll never be a mandate from on high to squish non-vanilla sex, but keep in mind that individual Inquisitors have very little oversight and tend to be eccentric at best; it's hardly beyond the bounds of possibility for a given Puritan Inquisitor to start burning people into odd porn.

Yeah, but it'd be a retarded thing for them to do it entirely on the basis of the porn in question.

>> No.50077640

Retardation isn't all that uncommon either, otherwise the Monodominants wouldn't be a thing.

>> No.50077774

Fair cop.

Of course if they got too disruptive, other Inquisitors would probably bump them off eventually.

It'd be the most retarded 'he's gotta go' political assassination ever.

I can understand his point, from a non American point of view what is nsfw it is rather schizophrenic. You have singers wearing bondage gear while singing to children, nothing wrong. Someone is breastfeeding some how that is the next hitler.

General rule of thumb is do they look like girl tits? Then it is nsfw.

There are different kinds of Sororitas. A Sister of Battle might not have the time to have a kid, but a Hospitaller?

Hospitallers are partially made up of wounded sisters who are still recuperating enough to return to active service as a Sister of Battle, or can no longer serve as one due to injuries. Assuming they haven't lost anything vital to baby making, and they don't work under too stressful conditions, it could theoretically happen.

Where did you read that? It's pretty interesting, because it means a sister can change orders during her career.

Got two female IG trooper minis in rogue trader, and two female last chancers (rocket launcher and miniskirt lasgun). Problem is, unless a model has big tits and long flowing hair, nobody will realise that they're supposed to be female. The rocket operator is a good example of that, as well as the old Minuteman from Infinity.

Tentacles belong to xenos, mutants or chaotic stuff. Either way is an insult to the superiority of the human form, and an open door to corruption.

>isn't any less sexually permissive than the modern developed world.

I think the sororitas training at the schola covers every kind of order during the first years (not to mention the early training that is common to every branch of the Imperium; even a regular Adeptus clerck knows how to shoot a lasgun). So a SoB has basic hospitaller, dialogous and famulous training, and the non-militant orders have basic military training.

As long as it isn't stilleto heels...
I've seen musketeers and pikemen with heeled shoes on old frescoes a few weeks ago, I was quite surprised.

On a sidenote, I long for a ministorum-centered event that isn't "launch crusade, kill a bunch of heretic, then die".
Give me internal conflict within the Imperium, faith and forbidden knowledge clashing, uneasy truces with the SM or Mechanicus creed, religion being used to unite human populations that aren't part of the Imperium, daring missionaries expeditions, a goddamn Richelieu expy ruling from the shadows, anything.
And if sisters could avoid getting corrupted in every story they appear in, it would be absolutely great. It's beginning to feel like the Worf effect.

Depends on the situation, and the Eldar, in question. It's why they're known for being capricious and untrustworthy.

The Craftworld Eldar, the the Exodites to an extent, are the faction that humanity could actually get along with if both people got a few-centuries of breathing room to get their shit together. However, the "There is only war" bit keeps both parties locked, loaded and ready to spring at anything and everything, Makes getting cooler heads together to speak a mite difficult.

It's been noted many, many times that the Eldar and Humans allying would make for an unstoppable force. It's certainly something the Ruinous Powers want to keep from happening.

Does make me wonder, though. 40K humanity is evolving into a psychic species /alarmingly/ fast (comparatively.) As a thought exercise, I wonder what the Eldar would do once that evolution starts hitting the tipping point. Humanity is too numerous, dug in and powerful to wipe out, but the point will come where the Eldar won't be able to dance around the issue as they have been.
