I really like those sisters, they look very much like they've just come from Church to the Battlefield which is perfectly fitting for their faction.

I rechecked the rumours yesterday, the GSC + Custodes rumour was actually for a battle box with existing figures and a new commander rather than a Kill Team box. I would much rather have had the kill team box.

The Kill Team box "rumor" came from Faeit/BoLS.

You can read the more reliable rumors right from this thread. A Guard/Nid box is still mentioned there...just not for December.

I'm not sure what I'm looking at with the Sisters?

Novitiates? But they're all wanting to be special leader units when they grow up? Do you really train specifically to be a Repentia Superior or Canoness?

Not digging those sisters for 40k, but they're going to make great Sisters of Sigmar. I even see a few normal, not even power, swords. Granted, you'll need more hammers for a proper Sigmar-fearing warband, but Stormcast have those in spades.

The real question is, why is one training to be a repentia? Does she know she's gonna feth up badly in a few years?

Yeah, the gear choices seem a bit confused.

Judging by the extra sword/auto pistol sister in the second image who doesn't feature in the first, it looks like there will be the option to build them was more basic gear (the body looks like the one holding the chalice thing from the first image).

If that's the case, then the kit will be worth it just to use all the extra bits to convert characters out of normal power armoured sisters.

(The unit leader also has the option of bolt/plasma pistol)

Yeah, terrain was always rumoured to be the existing kit but I was hoping they would throw in a sprue of the smaller statues from the range as they have been oop for a couple of years.

Even after GW's description, I still don't get why you'd send novitiates to do kill team stuff, or why they'd be carrying a bunch of holy relics..?

Or why they'd be using auto-weapons for that matter.

I guess auto weapons because bolt-guns would break their arms/cause undue fatigue as they aren't wearing power-armour to help them. Plus as novices they are likely not allowed to use such hallowed weapons yet.

As for the Holy Relics, don't forget most of the SoB equipment is a Holy Relic of some description or type.

Same reason why you'd send a bunch of Gaunts, Guardsmen, Ork Boyz, Fire Warriors, etc?
You have the forces handy and they can maybe accomplish the objectives.

Although from the setup/trailer? It looks like the Sororitas are potentially evacuating relics from a monastery or something.

So far that rumours seams to be spot on. That makes me happy as an Eldar player, since there is suppose to be massive Eldar release next year according to the rumour along with a massive CSM release. They also said we are getting squats and that made suspicious of that rumour, but now looks we are getting squats. I am not sure in what format. whether it's a full army of just a kill team

Its the return of the GW effect: 'the sculptors thought it was cool, the writers just have to suffer it out'


Looking at the WarCom article close ups, I'm sticking with my initial impression: good bits box, rubbish unit with a completely incoherent approach.

'Kill Team' or no, you'd still equip scouts or novices sensibly. The only thing this unit is geared for is a propaganda poster shoot.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

We just have to abandon WYSIWYG for kill team. GW marketing is incoherent and trying to rationalise everything into "immersion" in the lore for a tabletop experience is just too much chasing your own tail. Just paint on the base to denote its weapon and model whatever looks cool imo.

Guessing the rules book on its own is $50? Don't have much interest in anything else. Especially more gothic ruins...

The kit is likely to be like the Kommando and Krieg units. They can be put together in a specific kill team format with unique weapons or they can be created as a 40K unit with a more unified approach.

I'm wondering if / how the Novitiates are getting 40k rules (and am a bit annoyed that Codex: Adepta Sororitas is only three months old)

Cos it's the Imperium, there are holy relics all over the place. These ones might only be tier 0 holy relics, still holy but not really. As for sending rookies, experience. No better way to learn than a difficult mission where most of you will die. The survivors will either be shellshocked and useless, which means they weren't deserving of initiation in the first place or they will be hardened and ready for more. You can't think logically when it comes to religious cults like the Sisters.

This is why myself and others increasingly refuse to purchase printed rulebooks and are pissed about the lack of digital rules support for the game. Rules are in too many places and the publications which are supposed to be your "one stop shop" for everything to do with your faction are often filled with heavy edits within just a couple weeks of release, and then missing larger and larger segments of the total faction rules as time goes on and supplementary rules are released through other channels. The product lifecycle is just way too short relative to the cost of the book for it to be a good use of my money - thats money that I could be using to buy more minis instead

I think the AoS Slaanesh book was 1 month out before they dropped the newest demi-god model which makes two new characters. Granted I think the original plan had the Slaanesh book landing a bit earlier than it did, but yeah still onyl a few months out.

It can be annoying, though in theory the new Apps should at least cover us for rules once GW gets them working.

Boy oh boy I can't wait for an 80pt unit that takes fifty seven minutes to resolve their 10 slightly different melee statlines.
