Greetings.

This one has me stumped ... I need to model a condition at the sill of the window, where the wall/insulation is sloped down and away from the window sill.  (see the attached image). 

Is it possible or should I simply do the angled top with a sweep or or reveal? Or should I simply ignore it and deal with the issue in my details ... I don't want to over model but I would like to represent this reasonably.

I am using RAC 2011.

In your window family, you could remove the window opening and add new void cuts to achieve this.  Window families do not allow another void with the opening cut but do allow multiple voids.

 

You could also create a void family that is wall hosted that just provides this cut.

 

If you only have a few of these, you could do an in place void family.
