While the Battle Sisters are being reworked, I'm starting my endevour to reskin the Tactical and Devastator Marines.

Good news!

The Battle Sister model progress has been exceptional as of late. Not only will the model be receiving more fx similar to the layout of the WH model, but it turns out the Battle Sisters never had crucial cover animations implemented and will be receiving those from our end. Meltagun fx will also be more true to the WH mod rather the continuous stream featured in Soulstorm. Lastly, there will be teleportation animations implemented for a jump ability related to the Ultimate Apocalypse mod.

While the model is being tweaked, I wanted to announce that I will be starting my endevour on the Tactical and Devastator Marines! However I imagine the model will take even longer to texture. With the Battle Sisters and Retributors, there were eight weapons with three weapon packs imported from a mod with quality textures already provided. With Space Marines, there's around ten weapons and four weapon packs that will need to be textured from scratch.

It'll be a long process but at least when the texturing is done, the modeling part won't require further animation tweaks. Wish me luck and hopefully we'll have a release before the end of the year.

It's always great to hear about your work! Really looking forward to your next reskins!

But why ruin the awesome sororitas meltas?

You got that backwards. Meltaguns were ruined the moment they were made high-accuracy continuous stream energy weapons. If anything this un-ruins them.

As far as i'm concerned the continuous beam intepretation of the melta seems to be the most accurate one, even Arch himself said so.

Whether it is accurate or not, it would be nice to have sister melta weapons match the rest of the Imperial meltaguns in DoW.

Would the change affect accuracy/damage/attack speed?

I personally found imperial plasma weapons to be way superior to melta in any situation, but SOB do not have plasma so cool melta guns make sense.

Edit: IDH and SOB meltas are the only worth using really.

Since the particle isn't continuous, we might have to alter how the damage is laid out when firing said meltagun.

I'm not in any position to argue the changes made on the mod, but please, make the new melta guns actually worth using then)
