Could you please provide a link to said photo?


It's on /tg/ on 4chan. I don't have access at the moment, but i'll see if I can find it again tonight.


Couldn't find it, looked in all 5 threads about the model and found nothing :(


Hm, the thread must have fallen off the board since last night. But the softer paint scheme really helped the face. It's a typical Eavy Metal can't do soft skin tones.

It's not a question of realism, but of coherency (probably Ive misswritten that). I mean: sisters of battle are NUNS! They doesn't wabt to seduce, but to purge! So i could understand a "flamer boot" but not a "heels boot".

It's their style, that's it. It's meant to underline that they're women and not men at arms, which is the whole reason for their existance. See, there's your reasoning. Sure, it's totally "lets make up some bs to justify the boots and looks overall". But it's part of what SoB are. They're not just nuns.


And thats why they have boobplates: femminility but not seduction. SoB should rappresent purity, a purity so strong that they will purge everything, a purity so strong that, even their god is NOT a god, they do miracles anyway. They should not be space-domimatrix-sluts, for that there is Slaanesh.

But to answer the original question: Probably because the same people shouted at RH - infamous for cheesecakey female miniatures - for having heels on their not-sisters, stating that having heels on a miniature would be the same as sending them the miniature completely destroyed by a blender or something similar.


Wait - so boobplate is fine but heels arent when using the very same reason to justify them? And how exactly does a boobplate represent purity of all things? I mean, the boobs are prominently shaped and put on display by it, but the HEELS are too impure? I mean they're not even stilettos or something but really thick and sturdy.

And have you ever seen the actual repentia squads? "should not be space-dominatrix"? GW clearly thinks otherwise. If you don't like the style and fluff of Sisters that's fine, but it's still there and it's what Sisters of Battle are. So all you're saying is "I don't like the style of that army", which is totally fine. Don't buy them.

Not sure how relevant it is, but basic Battle Sisters are now "No longer available", at least on the UK webstore. Since some of the range will be Made To Order this weekend, it could be that they'll be included in that and so are being wound down in preparation for a new kit.

Either way, it seems odd to promote a new Codex and a new collectors' miniature for a range they're not selling. Perhaps the first batches of MTO were a test run for putting whole ranges into that category rather than just letting them disappear from the webstore?

UGH..... it double posted then undid itself after I edited the duplicate.

Lets derail the Sister armor design train and return to the supplement please (its been done to death and the Canoness is clearly a show piece remake of some art work and not indicative of the current vision for Sisters).

So I wonder what sort of new formations or detachments the Inq will have at their disposal. Astra Telepathica is probably going to be some formation of Psykers and those tend to be major game changers if the rules are good. The Aeronautica Imperialis seems interesting as I assume that's the air force (Valks, maybe Vendettas?). Sadly no Scions but hopefully they will get some love when IG gets updated to 7th (with chaos starting their 13th black crusade again the guard are going to need to play a major role).

Same for the German webstore. Basic Bolter Sisters are out of stock, everything else is still available.

Sisters were never like this. One picture of them was. First new model in 15 years and it's based on that picture. Woohoo, "iconic"!

If there's been change away from what they were originally then this is change back right to what they were from the get-go.

It's the original Imperial assassin model. It predates the temples fluff.

Edit: Bah, beaten. I'll add that they used to be pretty funny back in the early days of 2nd ed. You could load them out any way you wanted, so you could have one in terminator armour, riding around on a bike. They eventually had to clarify that if you gave an assassin polymorphine it couldn't also be carrying all that funky stuff along with it. Where would that humble eldar guardian have been hiding it all!

Can we just drop the argument now? It's a one off, limited edition display piece that will most likely sell out within the first hour. It's really not important and will not be the basis of how they look in the future. It's just an homage to a famous piece of artwork.

Argh I really wanted one of those female Witch Hunter models until, like, a year ago when I just bought something else from Hasslefree to serve instead...

Still might get one. And the priests I don't already have. Can never have too many weird looking religious-types running around.

And your contribution by this post to the thread is - apart from just whining? You do realsie this is a thread about the new Imperial Agents Codex which includes Sisters and the flagship model is - oh year a Sister of Battle. Pardon everyone for discussing the topic rather than just the lastest version of a slightly differnt coloured Marine.

Anyway back to the actual thread topic.

Some of the OOP models look very tempting as missing a couple of them. The Formations will be important - espeically for all those who have thus far been ignored.

It is hard to say that the flagship model is a Sister of Battle when she is limited to less than five per store. Agreed on the formations though. It sounds like they are going to be individualized, which is great.

I am hoping for a reason to get another Rhino or two(for Sisters of Battle), and possibly a Chimera.

So, our Studio Team set sculptor Martin Footit the task of creating an iconic miniature to accompany the book


According to GW anyway


Sure, but the last five pages have literally been Sisters players whining about the model, with a few people (one, maybe two) defending it. So it has been a good number of pages of sisters players whining and gak posting, when one post stating your discontent isn't enough. Instead people are getting defensive and telling other people they are wrong for liking it.

So, typical sister gak posting. Why are you getting so defensive and upset?

This book isn't the updated Sisters codex, it's the updated Inquisition codex with a new name. Take an inquisitor of a specific Ordo, a battle Sisters squad/deathwatch squad/grey knight squad with your henchmen, maybe throw in an assassin, and send them off with your guard/marine/sisters/knight army.

As long as we can still take servo skulls, can still take single assassins, and some of the older rules get clarified and updated, this release will be fine. Hopefully they don't get rid of flavourful things like hellrifles and Daemon blades, since they don't make models for those.

For those that play ITC, maybe this will shrink the amount of detachments that imperials take so you can squeeze in another one. That would be nice...

Oh wait, there's two different marine armies being represented, I guess this is more of a marine release than a Sisters one. Lol.


Sigh - same question - what did your specific post say apart from trying to be provactive and Trollish? How did it help?

So when another faction has a new model they don't discuss i - did anyone discuss the new appearance of Magnus the red - hmm I think maybe they did?

Well, probably, since Sisters and Chaos players tend to be never happy in that regard, and must try to ruin anyone else's enjoyment of it.

The fact that you are getting so defensive must mean you realize you are gak posting. You could always not do that, and not attempt to ruin other people's enjoyment of the model?


OK We get it your a scary Troll on the internet, we are all afraid - can we now move on and actually discuss the codex and related models?

Her face is awful, in my opinion. Not sure if it is the paint job or the sculpt but the face of the model looks nothing like the artwork. They didn't even get the design of the eyepiece right and the painter forgot the fleur-de-lis under her eye.

The scarring on the right side (her left) of the face is way too raised up which, combined with the paintjob, makes it look like she's had an allergic reaction to a space-bee sting.


The expectations in this thread are off the chart.

That image is ~10x15 inches. Now reduce that in size to 1/5. Then try to pick out small details. You're asking for the most intricate of details to be placed on a canvas a tiny fraction of the size of the artwork.



If GW want to charge over a tenner for a single human-sized model then you're damn right I expect them to not make it look like someone with half their face blown up from an allergic reaction. If the scarring in the image was too delicate to translate, then it shouldn't have been taken over on to the mini rather than blow it up to the point of disfiguring her face. People could add their own scars with a sharp craft knife if they wanted.

Re the model be good to see the unpainted metal as the face paint does seem a bit thick.

Vain hope that she will have her own rules - GW does do that sort of thing?
