My store flat out hasn't gotten anything so far.

Six people have pre-ordered stuff, and we're told it's likely that we could only receive two to three of each pre-order item.

That's weird. My store ended up getting the kind of stock they normally do pre pandemic times, which was probably 50+ boxes of each item, and tons of dexes. Still lagging behind in a lot of other army stock though.

Argh, why are Palatines so limited? If you want to sell many GW, add a second frame with some options. Like a jump pack, the other pistols, a drawn sword, some holsters…

Don’t just arbitrarily restrict canonesses to one/detachment.

It's not arbitrary. It's in line with Commanders, Captians and other leaders.

More importantly, is anyone else kinda mad they made Canonesses one/detachment like Captains now?


Nah it was inevitable so no point getting mad. We have known this will happen for like a year.

Luckily enough hq choices it won't be in game issue and makes thematically sense

So basically you want to pay like 50% for the character(you basically doubled cost for gw).

And sisters aren't snowflakes so they get same treatment as rest.

The palatine is basically a standard sister with bolt/plasma pistol and power sword, just kitbash her from the battle sisters squad.

Or mod one of the “special” sisters like Tariana Palos; that pose would totally rock a plasma pistol and power sword.

The problem I have is that they have no options, which, yes, is par for the course these days, but it still sucks.

I mean, maybe they don’t want to give them all the canoness options (I can see Null Rods, for example, being rare and expensive, and they aren’t the right rank to have a stick of power) but a Brazier option would be cool and on-theme. Same for the other pistols.
The model itself is also posed in a way that would look pretty good with a jump pack too.

To be honest 40k is becoming less and less about " your guys " and more and more about " the only option you have guys ". Which is a damn shame as options and choices for creation was what I really loved about this game when I started playing. It gave it so much life. The models might look so much better these days, subjectively, but the lack of choice and interesting set ups really is a negative for a creative hobby.

my store, a GW store didn't get most of it's pre-orders in, hopefully next weekend but it's annoying that GW can't fill pre-orders ontime. especially as GW stores are given a shipment of actual stuff, so you're actually screwed by pre-ordering

The recycling of dice from sacred rose is much better now as well.

Now 50% on every miracle dice, rather than a 1/3 chance to get one from an act of faith. So a charge has 75% of returning at least one, and you do have a chance to recycle the beacon of faith dice into a global dice. Can't do it on incensor cherubs though, because they give you cherub dice now, not miracle dice.

There's a lot of this codex that's pushing me into a two-detachment setup and sacred rose is definitely competing for one of them.

Mitch Beard from the Sister Act Podcast said that the math works out to something like a 100% increase on MD over the game for SR, so if you like them MD that is definitely an option.

It's all because the recycled dice themselves can be recycled.

When you math it out, because 1 becomes 0.5 on average, which in turn becomes 0.25, you get the classic infinite series:

1 + 1/2 + 1/4 +1/8... which does have a limit at 2.

So yeah. 200% of original.

It's the same way that a 6+++ is a 20% boost to survivability, despite only being a 16.7% chance, because the wound that is saved has a 16.7% chance to be saved again.

The series 1 + 16/100 + (16/100)^2... must have a limit of 1.2 (turns out its 1.19, close enough)

Glad to see someone else do the math. I wasn't going to bother to try and do it.

At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Is it arbitrary, though?

I mean, it's happening with all the other factions, and it never felt out of place there. Why would a Marine force have two Captains? Why would two Nurgle Lords tolerate one another's presence? When the Orks arrive, you think it'll be possible to bring two Warbosses?

Why would Sisters be exempt from that?

especially as we got Palintine's with the new codex so we've got 2 generic HQ options even if you refuse to use "non AS units"

me too, but I think every army should have a ":terminator and jump captain" varient if they have them, and paragorn warsuits are BASICLY the SOBs answer to termies IMHO.

I built a unit of Sacristans with halberds over the weekend - they look sooo good. Started assembling a unit of Numdams too - better in the hand than on a screen, although I'm going to try and add candles, seals and as much other religious gubbins as I can to make them look less sleek.

Columbus, Oh

I got a question, probably silly and I can infer the answer.. BUT

I am getting a Sister Suit box in the mail tomorrow, (I think) and the images online show that they are all armed with 2 maces and 1 sword, and one each of the Heavy Trinity.

Does that ASSUME then that there is only one of each heavy weapon arm in the box, so if I WANTED to run the Mace arms with MultiMelta arms, I am gonna need to trade? I planned to run them as an identically armed group

Or is there a rule that these dont need to be in a "unit" in 9th ed, and each one can have a dedicated role?

2+2=5 for sufficiently large values of 2.

Order of St Ursula (Sisters of Battle): W-2, L-1, T-1
Get of Freki (Space Wolves): W-3, L-1, T-1
Hive Fleet Portentosa (Nids/Stealers): W-6, L-4, T-0

Looking at the sprue pics, i'm pretty sure there's three of each heavy weapon. And three of each melee weapon, too.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.
