I have come across a supposed White Dwarf (Jan.) Pic showing plastic sisters. It seems the endtimes are upon us. If I get anymore I'll update; and no I do not have the magazine myself.

And just after I blew all my money on blood bowl, can't say I regret that though. But now money is gonna be tight. The deciding factor for me though will be the look of the regular troops, and if they get their own book. They do look good in gold, but i really liked the black and red...hmm.

They look nice, but I'm happy I threw my money at Ragingheroes's TGG2 kickstarter instead. Then again, these GW plastic sisters will probably come in a year before TGG2 finally ships out.

Spoiler:



Either way, both companies' Seraphim equivalents' wings look really chunky.

At least GW's will be plastic and not cast in greasy, hard to clean, not to mention awfully brittle resin. I've learned my lesson with that stuff from their first KS.

Hah. I totally agree. However, I'm more of a fan of painting personally, so the final result is much more important than the journey.

Speaking of brittle, I'm rather curious how much punishment those fiddly bits of "flying base" parchment and Celestine's halo can take.

it appearse that saint celestine gets a new model, so she most likely will get printed rules. So a new codex seems very likely

Could be Celestians or the like acting as a honour guard, judging by the white stripe through the hair, which IIRC is a sign of seniority within the orders.

AoS is really well balanced, has Skaven. I play both, and in fact Skaven have a really competitive edge with one of the best units in the game.

I think most people were expecting that any plastic Seraphim kit would have an alternate build. I'll be interested to see if the Living Saint is a clampack or included as an alternate construction of the Seraphim Superior.

Also:

I mean, yeah, plastic Sisters, I'm all kinds of up for that, but a plastic female Inquisitor AND a new Magos that might be even better than the Dominus kit? Gak me, this is going to hurt, I think I might have to redirect my new PC monitor fund into models.

I can live with the old models either way, but new Repentia and possibly some new units would be amazing. Seems likely we will see at least one dual kit. Didn't one of the rumors say new dual kit on larger bases? Maybe it's these Seraphim or whatever they may be called.

Grab a picture of the existing Seraphim models. The Jump Packs are identical and the added wings are more based on the 30K Raven Guard Corax/Dark Fury wings than the Stormcast ones.
The poses and contact points to the base are an obvious nod to Prosecutors but other than that...Stormcasts these are not.

Could this be an alternate build from the Seraphim box? Either make regular Seraphim with a Sister Superior, or build a Living Saint and a new melee-armed bodyguard unit. Would explain them sharing a colourscheme with the Saint.

Also, someone needs to phototshop those Sisters with a regular black & red colourscheme so people stop with this "Sigmarine" nonsense just because they're gold.

Yep, they're near identical to the current metal models, size notwithstanding (little hard to judge without a comparison). Which is fantastic, because the biggest fear I had with a plastic Sororitas range was them changing the style away from the metal models so they wouldn't "fit in" next to each other on the table. My current sizeable Sister Army is looking forward to receiving reinforcements!

Given the bare left hand releasing the doves, the winged kneepads, the roses around her sword's crossguard and the halo behind her it is definitely St. Celestine.

But, I suspect its just Celestine for now and she can be taken for any Imperial army. I am also guessing that during the "Fall of Cadia" she appears and saves the Cadians ala "Angel of Verdun".

Just glue some coins under the base. The plastic will be studry and flexible enough to rsist stress and the coins will sure keep these things upright.

Yeah, a lot of figures benefit from that, but flying ones particularly because they tend to have bad center-of-mass issues. Luckily, though you might have to trim the bottom of the base a little, a penny will fit under most miniatures bases.

Hearing that quote I started wondering whether Black Templars might receive upgrade sprues or new kits... (My guess would be rather the first one)
Hopefully an upgrade sprue that is more than just a single frame like what UM, BA, DA, SW, and DW got. I want a full-on upgrade for the newer Tactical Squad kit. What I am hoping this means is that Black Templars will be getting a new Detachment that is based around Crusader Squads. It will leave me a little salty, since my Crimson Fists will still be left out in the cold (we can't fully make use of the Sternhammer Strike Force due to there being no place to put Pedro Kantor), but they definitely need something after being almost completely ignored for the Angels of the Death book.

Seems like a good rationale to (finally!) discontinue to Cadians and give us a better looking regiment.

GLORIOUS dakkadakka forum I once again bring my humble self to tell you one message. Thank games workshop for me. I was the chosen one who above all others called "it" and predicted a great deal of releases. Particularly with the Dark Eldar model. Shout out to the dark city tho for helping analyse that picture.

Anyways I am super hyped for the Dark Eldar board game? Sounds fun. Likely see a whole host of cool models. Thedarkcity is basically on party mode right now. Now I wonder... if people will freak out when I think Ultramar will fall to the Tau + others. Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. Haha.

Starting to wonder now if maybe it's just Celestine + bodyguards as a dataslate in the campaign book along with the Magos and Inquisitrix and not an actual new codex release.

Surely they would have shown battle sisters as well if they existed?

NEWS: According to Warhammer TV they are doing a Live Q&A on the Twitch stream about the new January release at 1pm GMT today.

Not necessarily. We saw Magnus the Red long before we saw the Rubric Marines.

I am 100% getting that Inquisitor. She looks fantastic. She shall be an Ordo Xenos Inquisitor.

It's most probably just Celestine and her girls, in the WHTV video they're saying "Celestine leading a Black Templar force against the Cadian Gate" so she's in the campaign book for sure. Obviously more may come in feb

My hope (yeah I know, first step to disappointment and all that) is that this is just the initial tease and the rest of the plastic sisters are being released but just not leaked/teased yet. At the very least it would make sense to have a kit for the normal power armored sisters which would cover half of the codex entries.

Not all of them. Eldrad and Artemis are still locked away for right now. It isn't a huge deal, by any means, but people would likely be pissed if they couldn't get ahold of her without having to buy a boxed set.

They will likely tie this board game into a full dark eldar release much like the Deathwatch and GSC. WOOHOOO my Dak Kin get some love.

The current bet is it might not be vect, but a new DE character Vects personal archon who I forget the name of. He is famous for stealing soul gems and then putting trapped souls into them. HE is fairly new lore wise but seems popular.

If Vect had rules even remotely like his old ones, he'd be absurdly overkill for a starter box.

Duke Sythrac. He's basically Vect's personal attack dog. He's got a sword that devours souls, too.

I was thinking just putting something underneath to reach the legs, I am hoping that pillar from the AoS hero bases is tall enough.

I guess this new Black Crusade won't last very long if both the Sisters and Templars are going to meet them head on, boy Abaddon, you just opened up a whole can a trouble! Even the Noise Marines will be deafened by the screaming of For the Emperor!

A previous rumor. That same rumor says their troops will be getting updated and there may be more kits. I would hope we see Vect on some sort of pimp mobile which would be super cool and give the DE something big/lord of warish. However the rumor only specifies the DE troops update and Sythrac. Another rumor that is separate from that says there was a sisters vs DE starter set which I think is this boardgame. Finally another rumor says that there are three codices left to do before 8th. Sisters is likely one of them, DE/CE are likely going to be in a campaign set. So who would the other two codexes be? They have been saving full codexes for completely new armies.
"Archon Volossian Sythrac prized possessions are his collection of soul traps - vile devices that act much like the spirit stones of the Craftworld Eldar, though in a far more hideous and predatory way. The act of parting a soul from its mortal body is child’s play to Sythrac. A single scratch from his ancient huskblade will turn his victims to dust in seconds. The disembodied soul, torn so quickly from its physical vessel, is then easy prey for the spirit vortex of Sythrac’s rapacious soul trap. Once a soul is claimed within for all eternity, its captive energies harnessed to energise Volossian Sythrac’s ancient body."

I have hope for Kroot Mercs/Demiurg being one. Please GW hit it out of the park.

The difference is that the DE troops are only 5-6 years old, while Fire warriors were like 10+ years old.

I seriously doubt DE would get a Troop update sooner than every other faction has other than Loyalist Marines, especially given their "have not" status.

People have told me a lot of impossible stuff over the years kiddo, and I've seen a lot happen that shouldn't happen. I think with the plot advancement of Eldrad screwing the Eldar they will give them some new options to tie into the end times advancement.

A lot of people also said that the old Fire Warriors where incredibly dated when compared to the much higher quality sculpt Pathfinders. It wasn't farfetched that they would update the 10+ year old sculpt for the base troop of a fairly popular faction.

Then you should know they didn't update default Firwarriors at all other than refreshing the mold. Only added bits for Breachers. The Striker team looks identical to the old firewarriors other than being a little more crisp. So clearly you didn't do your homework. Firewarriors always looked great and still do considering they are basically the same model. People were upset they were giving them the sad frowny Breacher faces and taking away the old design, but that didn't happen because it looks really really good.


Edit
Further evidence. The Tau Commander model was a fairly new model and got reboxed with new kit options for a Coldstar Commander. It was like 4-5 years old only if I recall correctly. People said that was unlikely. For feth's sakes the PLASTIC sisters of battle are here and you can't believe the Dark Eldar are going to get a troop update/rebox? That is astounding sir.

But like you say, the new ones are much more crisp. The Kabalites and Whyches are crisp enough already, and easily stand up with the newer troop kits. The Fire Warriors didn't look dated in the design, but the actual quality of the models. They didn't just refresh the moulding either, the whole kit was recut, it's got different leg poses etc so it was resculpted, they just kept the design.

Gamgee, this meshed-together rumor from October(?) on Faeit you are refering to lately, has already several errors, and it is really hard to believe as it comes with a lot of nonsense too.

Several parts have been known for months (Sad Panda and Atia).

Also it mentions Thousand Sons and a Keeper of Secrets in an army boxed set. That's nonsense isnt it? Tz and Slaanesh mixed?

Meshing rumor stuff from different sources and offering it as new like what that rumor source on Faeit did lead to many disappointments in the past. With its current flaws it is already not of AAA quality. Pretre has tracked these rumors and we will see what will actually turn out to be true in the end.

I'm looking at it from a business perspective. The fall of Cadia finally means we can see some other regiments in plastic. After all we have what ...1-2 runs of Cadians in pewter metal, 1-2 runs of Cadians in plastic and more Cadians via Forgeworld? Anyone who plays IG and was interested in the Cadian aesthetic have made their investment. It makes sense for GW to move on. Obviously Cadians aren't going anywhere. There will still be billions of them in the universe after the fall of Cadia and who knows, maybe they will make a counter attack to regain Cadia.

Lorewise, this was expected. Cadians have been sending troops to fight in nearly every conflict in the galaxy. Is it any surprise that their home planet half occupied by Chaos finally fell? This is not to be confused with other regiments adorned in cadian equipment elsewhere in the universe. If you look at the troop allocations in some of the biggest conflicts in the universe you will find Cadians, yes Cadians from Cadia present fighting all over the universe.

People aid the same thing about the Tau Firewarriors and then boom Breachers. Exact same wording. it could very well just be a rebox with sprue options.


A lot of people also said that the old Fire Warriors where incredibly dated when compared to the much higher quality sculpt Pathfinders. It wasn't farfetched that they would update the 10+ year old sculpt for the base troop of a fairly popular faction.

Then you should know they didn't update default Firwarriors at all other than refreshing the mold. Only added bits for Breachers. The Striker team looks identical to the old firewarriors other than being a little more crisp. So clearly you didn't do your homework. Firewarriors always looked great and still do considering they are basically the same model. People were upset they were giving them the sad frowny Breacher faces and taking away the old design, but that didn't happen because it looks really really good.


I have both the old and new fire warrior sculpts and the issue with the old kit was the lack of detail on the molds due to being some of the older plastic kits. The new kits have a lot more defined detail which surpasses the quality of the pathfinders which is exactly what they needed. Fire Warrior design was never the issue for needing a new kit. Bringing it back to Dark Eldar I personally don't think DE plastic are very dated as they have a lot of quality and hold up when compared to the more recent releases.

I dont believe in new plastic regiments because of a Fall of Cadia campaign book. There are several factions without a home in this game. Eldar, Tyranids, Space Marine chapters like Dark Angels, and many more.

The commander wasn't reboxed, it was resin before, resculpted into a plastic kit with the same design but bigger and with more options, like the Coldstar kit. It was resin originally like I said, which they're phasing out, so it wasn't a surprise that it got redone really.

The Sisters look good other than I don't like them being supported on scrolls.

But still I'm not holding my breath until I see matching foot sloggers to know this isn't just a Celestine + 2 bodyguards in a dataslate (or whatever the hell the kids are calling them) vs a proper Sisters codex and full range of plastics.

Celestine was the only thing that was moved to "last chance to buy", all the other stuff is listed as regular (though web only) sales, so at this point I'm not surprised, I will be when they replace the other stuff that hasn't been listed as "last chance".

Ah. Still it offers a potential explanation and the DE person teased with the robes and gems fits the description of Sythrac quite well. Which lends more credence to that part of the rumor being at least a little right.

Edit
A recent sisters rumor said 4 kits. No idea how reliable that is. If that is true some might make two options? Hard to say. Assuming it happens.

True enough, but I'm a big DE fan. Not as crazy as Tau or Kroot but you know they got some style and they screw everyone over. So any sort of DE release is going to get me interested unless its a boardgame with existing models since I have no one in real life to play it with now.

Gamgee, this meshed-together rumor from October(?) on Faeit you are refering to lately, has already several errors, and it is really hard to believe as it comes with a lot of nonsense too.

Several parts have been known for months (Sad Panda and Atia).

Also it mentions Thousand Sons and a Keeper of Secrets in an army boxed set. That's nonsense isnt it? Tz and Slaanesh mixed?

Meshing rumor stuff from different sources and offering it as new like what that rumor source on Faeit did lead to many disappointments in the past. With its current flaws it is already not of AAA quality. Pretre has tracked these rumors and we will see what will actually turn out to be true in the end.






I think it is fairly safe to assume that they meant Lord of Change.
But I am definitely not one to support Faeit or Bols.
I am just here enjoying how adorable it is that all of those nasty nasty bitter people who were so sure that there were no plastic sisters are dining on crow.

I think we should all take a moment to thank the photographer. It cannot be easy to take pictures of a magazine when you have no hands, and there's and earthquake going on.

So many thanks to the photographer. I hope the prosthetics come in soon, and that you move to somewhere that isn't near a fault line.



Anyway, yes, plastic Sisters. Pretty sure that's Celestine + 2 bodyguards, and that kit is going to be expensive as feth.

The Magos is pure sex. I am in love with that model. Why are we getting it? Is there a big AdMech release coming? Combined books? Skitarii with a fething HQ finally?

The Hereticus Inquisitrix is great. I've been saying for years that they should have made a model of her:



... and it seems they finally are.

Archonites? Cool. Disc-riding Tzaangors? Even cooler!

Fall of Cadia? As long as we get a boss new Failbaddon mini (like Arhiman) and not a failure of a mini (like Kharn) then that'll be good.

And based on the tagline for Gangs of BDSM, it looks to be bikes and hoverboards for them.

And that other Knight dude is supported by 2 scrolls instead of 1 like the Seraphim. Having 1 support makes it less than half as rigid if they're similar thickness.

I would give them the KoS mistake but am still very cautious regarding that highly detailed list. If it turns out to be correct, which if we look back to the early spanish 'WFB will get replaced-rumors' from 2012 which were doubted but were correct in the end, can happen. I prefer being cautious, while known sources have my support (because they are criitical of themselves and make sure the info is valid), but the anonymous ones from Faeit are often wrong. I always congratulate sources that were correct, no matter what they looked like at the beginning.

GLORIOUS dakkadakka forum I once again bring my humble self to tell you one message. Thank games workshop for me. I was the chosen one who above all others called "it" and predicted a great deal of releases. Particularly with the Dark Eldar model. Shout out to the dark city tho for helping analyse that picture.

Anyways I am super hyped for the Dark Eldar board game? Sounds fun. Likely see a whole host of cool models. Thedarkcity is basically on party mode right now. Now I wonder... if people will freak out when I think Ultramar will fall to the Tau + others. Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. Haha.



Do we have a picture of the actual Dark Eldar model?

Ultramar isn't going to fall to the Tau. It didn't fall to the most powerful single Hive Fleet gathering (Behemoth focused it's entire force into one hammer blow, unlike the tendrils of later hive fleets) ever seen, it certainly isn't going to fall to a race who's fleet gets swept aside by an angry look from the Imperial Navy.

I suspect that the next time the Ultramarines make an appearance in a campaign it'll be against Red Corsairs or something similiar, since 2017 seems like it's going to be the year of Chaos. After all, 2016 was supposed to be the year of Sigmar...

Since the Cadians carry the team elsewhere, all of the non-Cadian regiments are destroyed on Cadia, leaving only Cadians and Cadian models in the future.

My Open-ended prediction: Cawl (as many assume) has a running deal with Deldar for tech to keep stuff working in the Golden Throne; so it stands to reason that with Abaddon running to Terra to kill the Emperor, in order to get to Terra first, the Dark Eldar open up webway portals to get the Templars and Sisters there faster.

Well, they're one of the most technologically advanced races in the setting who are familiar with warptech and mercenary enough to strike a deal. If anyone can do it, they'd fit the bill.

Of course, I maintain that trusting the Dark Eldar with the cornerstone holding up the entire Imperium is a fantastically stupid idea.

The Eldar (and the Dark Eldar) do have an interest in keeping the Imperium propped up. So it's not too crazy a possibility.

Or it could just be a retainer of the Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor. Typically, unless it's within their area of responsibility, an Inquisitor doesn't really care too much.

That was my line of thinking entirely, everyone is walking uphill to a bright shiny light. That screams webway portal. "Hey Vect, here's some slaves, now get us to Terra asap."

Assuming 8th doesn't stunt any armies the way Sigmar did to Fantasy, it'll definitely offer up good reasons for more contention amongst "good" and "evil" armies. Craftworlders aren't going to be happy about the dark kin being used, the Dark Eldar are certainly not going to stick to any promises they make, some imperial armies will see this as pure heresy and I can understand power armor fighting power armor over differences in how Terra is defended.

And then there's all the talk about a returning Primarch keeping everyone at odds...

Honestly, that little bit at the end of Wrath of Magnus about
Spoiler:
the highlords giving a sealed letter that many assume is going to be used to OK the awakening of a Primarch may in fact be the OKing of releasing Saint Celestine. To me, Im totally cool with that. Sisters need a little love and we need a good heroine.

Fair enough, but my point is that the whole thing was built with human tech, something that's hardly going to be compatible with xeno solutions, even if the subject matter is similar.

Unless of course it's not about making sure the Throne does not fail and instead about making sure it finally works as intended. At this point, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Emperor ascending.

the Sisters of Silence
right? It pretty clearly referred to a

and it even has an artwork of one on the very next page just to make it all the more obvious.

Anyway, I'm not sure if that artwork is a sign of full Dark Eldar involvement alongside the Imperium or if it is just some kind of retainer or advisor for one of the new characters. Of all the Chapters to be found allying with xenos for any reasons, Black Templars are one of the most unlikely surely? Desperate times I guess...

it appearse that saint celestine gets a new model, so she most likely will get printed rules. So a new codex seems very likely


It says it right in the video that St. Celestine's rules are in the Fall of Cadia book. Explains her not being in C:IA, perhaps with her two not Seraphim (I heard on B&C they were called Gemini???) they are a formation or two from the FoCadia book?

Doesn't necessarily mean a new Codex or anything else for that matter. We should try not to turn this into OMG fifteen new boxes of plastics Sisters!!!! GW did just repackage and re-release the metal ones less than a week ago. New FoCadia book, new Celestine and twins kit(s), rumor confirmed that a plastic SoB kit will be released in January.

Apart from the three models, that just means SoB players have to drag around more than one book to have all their rules. Yay we get to join the club! All I see for my SoB so far is the chance to use some of my Seraphim superiors with power weapons again for counts as Gemini (if thats what those two are called).

That Inquisitor though, she wrecks me, gorgeous model.

Now give me my SoB tactical cards!!!!

So according to the recent HH book Emperor of Mankind:
Spoiler:
The Big E. patched into the webway using a Martian copy of the webway tech. to attach Terra into the nearest bit of Webway. Magnus warning the Big E. broke the wards that were protecting the webway and allowed both Demons, Titans and Tratior legions into the webway. The Big E. then used up much of the Custodies, Silent Sisters and Terra bound Mechanicum fighting them off from reaching Terra while the Big E. tried to keep the remaining wards in place from the Golden Throne. The Big E. was fixated with not losing the webway, as soon as he gave up all hope and turned off the gateway on Terra he said he had lost the war he had been fighting against the Chaos Gods to protect Mankind from the Warp by using the Webway as seemingly living space for Mankind.

I'm a bit confused by the Celestine kit, is like a larger blister with 3 models instead of 1? What is the point of her bodyguard? Does that mean she isn't an IC and can't join another unit?
So is she basically 3 WS4 S3 T3 I3 Seraphim? Has her 3W been turned into 2 other models that die before she does?

The odd thing it's that the Eldar with the inquisitor don't give a strong vibe about being fully dark Eldar,the way the helmet and the right shoulders are designed reminds me of a shinning spear.

Maybe it's Drastanta their Phoenix Lord who's been gone since Asurmen died for 1st time. (after all is the end of times and all Phoenix lord must die according to the Rhana Dhandra)

It may have different rules like the conclave of burning one from the necros, having etra saves or fnp while her bodyguards are around , even different stats.

I'm pretty sure they said no re-release of codexes before 8th. So a sisters codex isn't likely till after the new edition. The Codex: Imperial Agents wasn't really anything of the sort, just a place to lump a bunch of different previously unprinted items into print. Campaign books and story advancement are coming but we're not supposed to get new codexes until the new edition.

Overall though the models for this look superb.

No, the Emp's plan was always to use the old one constructed webway.

Magnus was to sit on the Golden Throne on Terra as a sort of intergalatic airport controller, but one who could journey off and see/go pretty much anywhere using remote viewing/astral travel/etc etc .

Unfortunately this inbuilt curiosity led him down other pathways first of all....

.. which led to him breaching the webway portal in the Palace and , almost literally, unleashing hell there.

So the Emperor sent Russ to Prospero to bring Magnus back -- so he could be sat on the throne to stave off the daemonic assault...

.. but Horus/pride/anger --combination of all of them -- instead set Russ to kill Magnus, thus keeping the Emperor occupied.

Gathering Storm – First Look

The Eye of Terror is about to open and unleash a tide of darkness, Daemons and traitors into an already beset Imperium. Against the unified might of the Traitor Legions stand the heroes of the Cadian Gate, who will stop at nothing to drive back the Gathering Storm.

The scene is set for the most epic narrative in the history of the 41st Millennium – a fitting celebration of 30 years of Warhammer 40,000 and a great way to kick off the next 30 years of grim darkness in the far future.

The Gathering Storm begins with the epic events detailed in the Fall of Cadia – available for pre-order on January 7th.

The miniatures accompanying the first Gathering Storm book represent a few of the factions that stand against the Legions of Chaos, including: our first plastic Inquisitor miniature, the huge and hunched form of an ancient Archmagos Dominus, and the angelic Saint Celestine, resurrected (or possibly, saved from the dust bin) leading the Imperium’s armies.

Also the "rules for everyone to use" sounds suspicious to me. I wouldn't be surprised if we are going to get a preview of 8th Edition rules in this book ala End Times Archaon which introduced formations/battalions to Warhammer Fantasy months before Age of Sigmar hit.


They elaborated that this meant scenarios to play, to recreate the battles in the book.

Books surfacing detailing a campaign of dramatic events leading to a big climax (WZ fenris, this one)

Rumours of 8th edition next year...

seems very familiar

I hope the Dark Eldar thing is a game like Necromunda. Even better, they release Necromunda!

On Celestine, SURELY they could have embossed the script so a wash would pick it up, vs the nightmare of that amount of freehand? :-P

Pretty sure that would compromise the integrity of the tabards that are holding up the entire model. I.e. it would create easy places for the tabards to 'snap'
Looks like tons of Freehand it is!

I'm sure they learnt their lesson on the whole "we want a point system". No, that's actually not sarcasm.
From what I heard AoS is a pretty good game now (I'm just not into Fantasy wargaming at all, so I have zero personal experience there), so I'm looking forward to 8th edition or whatever it's going to be called.

What a beautiful release. Can't wait for the AoS reveals tomorrow either. I don't play or plan to start any of these armies (other than maybe AdMech, DAT ARCHMAGOS), but I'm so happy to see GW doing this sort of thing.

I fear this will be the only plastic sisters we see until 8E. I also fear the Sisters codex will be copy paste for the 4th time without any of the problems fixed...

Have they said what the Gemini are? I am guessing they must be sort of mini living saints if they can appear alongside Saint Celestine.

I am hoping she gives crazy buffs to armies of the Imperium.

The Eldar (and the Dark Eldar) do have an interest in keeping the Imperium propped up. So it's not too crazy a possibility.

Or it could just be a retainer of the Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor. Typically, unless it's within their area of responsibility, an Inquisitor doesn't really care too much.



The odd thing it's that the Eldar with the inquisitor don't give a strong vibe about being fully dark Eldar,the way the helmet and the right shoulders are designed reminds me of a shinning spear.

Maybe it's Drastanta their Phoenix Lord who's been gone since Asurmen died for 1st time. (after all is the end of times and all Phoenix lord must die according to the Rhana Dhandra)


Thats quite obviously Kabalite Armour, though highly styalised (and definitely not an Incubus Warsuit), that helmet is actually identical to one on the Kabalite Warrior sprue. I expect him to be an Archon, or maybe a Dracon.

Normal Sisters fight alongside St C but we have no info on these two ladies other than their name.

I think that Magos may be the all-time best single mini GW has ever put out.... overwhelming detail and spot on faithful design... love it.

Celestine and co... I dunno... a little plain???

The Gemini could also be a honourary title for those honoured with fighting alongside the saint.

I think the Sisters boxed thing might be Sisters & Black Templars vs Cadian Gate (Chaos), some sort of campaign at the very least judging from the warhammer TV clip.

If it was Sisters vs DE what kits would the DE get? What are the missing? Grotesques, Beastmasters + beasts and Incubi are all I can think of atm.

Special characters are really the only DE models that need a kid update, IMO. They need new rules more than they need new models.


Grotesques, Incubi, Mandrakes, Beastmasters + Beasts, Vect, potentially Bloodbrides and Trueborn. Not counting any new units. But agreed on the new rules. Make the Void Raven half decent again!

Okay, GW. What the hell? I just got to the point where my current pile of shame is at a manageable level, and you go and leak both Tzeentch Arcanites and SoB in one day! Is there a word for the emotional combination of elation and exasperation?

I think Celestine suffers from being released alongside the fantastic miniatures that are Belisarius Cawl and Inquistor Greyfax, to be honest. It's a good model, but those two are amazing models.

Really hoping to see a paint scheme on that Saint so the wings are almost blended to produce the image of blazing wings and make sword all fiery while the eyes are white hot with fury!

I can't see this character being the only plastic sister, it doesn't make sense to have players collect a shiny new plastic hero and then have to take out a mortgage for the old metal stuff.

That Celestine could look pretty sweet if you add her chains back on her feet and fray her robes a little bit. Just giving her a slightly more grimdark twist.
So a little bit more of this:

The Magos is a perfect sculpt. It's exactly what Mechanicum is and strives to be. That look just doesn't suit everyone, it seems.
