I like this Canoness OK - so long as there are a few more Cannoness(es?) released as well. She seems like a good overall General - but we need a few more "get stuck in with the girls" options too IMO.

The hate for the plasma is the sisters have the holy trinity as their thing and the handful of plasma weaponry is an abberation.
It's the principal of the matter and arguments of them being there and being modelled are irrelevant in the face of such principals. To support plasma is tantamount to heresy.

Yarp.

It's also something we don't often see in 40k. Most don't really live to a ripe old age, and those that do are Marines, who are seemingly functionally immortal, thus not prone to ageing.

I like that touch, as it suggests SoB are pretty badass survivors in a galaxy of horror (power armour of course helps!)

You're right.

But so many of the Sister's traditions are centered around GW not wanting to make new models and the writers making excuses for this. I feel like its time to leave at least some of that behind so the Sisters range can grow and evolve.

I don't mind this model . There are aged Canonesses mentioned in the stories and it makes sense.

I'd change a few things- the collar and vestements perhaps.

But i don't see myself picking one up when Hairdo McSkullboobs is still available.

If they looked lightweight, and the wind theme was carried through with hair or movement on the model it might work.

Not true. We'll likely have 4-5 alternate HQ or Elite character types to choose from.

Frankly though, I just don't care about the lack of weapon choices based on models. The units get whittled down to the most efficient by the tournament crowd and that funnels down to casuals as the "you'd be stupid to take anything but this" default choice.

So why bother with options, when everyone will only take 1 choice per unit anyway. That's a cynical take, but that's what net lists have done to the game.


Not everybody follows mindlessly along with netlisting, so why should all our options be taken away because some people aren't capable of independent thought?

For my money, that also wasn't an improvement to the game.

Factions are defined as much by their limits as their strengths, and the more they "grow and evolve", the more homogeneous and uninteresting they become.

I have no doubt all the "we want random new stuffz" people will get exactly what they want eventually, and that Sisters ten years from now will look very little like the Sisters that made me fall in love with the faction back when they first launched, but can you not wait until their first actual plastic release is out of the way before clamouring for changes? It'd be nice to have access to a complete "proper" Sisters army in plastic before GW start to "improve" them.

Meh. My favorite Sister Superior has a plasma pistol and a chainsword. She doesn't even know how to spell trinity. Plasma is still good for burning heretics, so I don't mind if it occasionally pops up on the new models.

Also I’m really liking the amount, of stuff on her, she looks beautifully 40k and over the top. I didn’t like the Sisters Repentia, but I’m loving this Canoness. My only problem is similar to what’s mentioned above, where she has too many things and not enough hands or holsters.

I don't mind that she can get a plasma pistol (in Requiem Infernal there are dialogus sisters using plasma weapons, but maybe that doesn't count because it's black library ), but it would really bother me if there are not other option in the kit and every canoness now must have a plasma pisto, power sword, fancy rod and a bionic leg.

I like the face (but I hope there's also a cool helmet option).

and that's a hard pass from me.

aged face is cool, but seriously, last model i was complaining about how it didn't fit what i knew about the model types lore and wasn't showing off what i feel was it's religious nature enough for my taste. now im sitting here wondering why suddenly it feels we called an armored ministorum priest instead of someone fully suited to be at the head in the battlefield. a rod of office, the giant collar (how much crap would i have to pay for and then fix/not use at this rate!), or the ridiculous..swaying things. id think they'd look better on the back on the model, perhaps, but it would kind of get in the way or shot off considering the two giant one handers.

There enough bugging me ill overlook the plasma pistol seemingly default sidearm, how did someone tell me this before? "you have to expect it wouldn't be what you hoped and they'd change stuff", right? I have much more annoyances than it anyway.

Over under on a Jump pack Cannoness like I was hoping is also feeling slimmer. yey.

Spoiler:




That's a very literal response when you consider that the point is that once upon a time Marines were pretty much exclusively shock troops meant to perform surgical strikes, which considering they were allowed to act independently, went hand in hand with the ability to insert and extract troops. That's your Thunderhawk. Whereas at some point GW somehow figured that they should be able to conduct any military operation successfully, on land and in the air, which for the latter meant getting a functional air force that far exceeded their transportation needs. All around a ludicrous idea considering Marine forces are ridiculously tiny, but GW went there,

That's hardly invalid criticism, no matter how you frame it.

Sisters run the risk of getting the same treatment. The armies of the Imperium were specifically split up to prevent another Horus Heresy and are supposed to be dependent on interdisciplinary coordination. They already got a Forgeworld flyer and, if I remember the remarks about novels correctly, have their own battleships in Black Library novels.

Yodhrin's got a point. In their obsession to give every Imperial army is own visual identity and the ability to play the same game as everyone else, the background identity of the factions and the Imperium as a whole has been, let's call it watered down to avoid being mean.

Ironically that went hand in hand with writing ally rules that made the original idea of mixing Imperial factions appealing and specialized troops for every faction redundant. That's modern GW for you, I guess.

-imgsnip-



If you're going to be sarcy, it helps to actually know what you're being sarcy about first so you don't look silly.

Thunderhawks were specifically exempted during the original division of military powers because they were presented primarily as transport craft and as such were required for Marines to function properly. They were combat capable in the context of their intended role, but they weren't actual fighters, interceptors, or bombers. If you think back, "it's totes just a transport honest guv" was actually the same nonsense GW tried to use to justify the original Chibihawk in fluff terms.

Navy handles space and air combat. Guard handles ground combat. Marines act as special forces and linebreakers. That was an interesting idea. Now everybody gets a fleet, everybody gets an airforce, everybody fights sieges etc etc, and all the thematic underpinning of a new-founded Imperium terrified of another Horus hacking its military apart and all of that, over time and along with everything else, degrading into factionalised semi-feudal bickering is lost, because GW want to flog another newshiny and Marine players can't handle the idea that there might be some areas of warfare where they have to depend on the rest of the Imperium.

All these little "limitations" lead to cool bits of background material like the Avenger being favoured by the Sisters for close support, and so often Navy squadrons of them end up on religious crusades. Except with the new approach, the Sisters would just get a newshiny flier of their own, flown by a Sister so nobody has to feel left out.

Like the trinity- I've long considered the separation of powers was a fluff justification for the lack of aircraft in a scifi game.

When aircraft showed up in 3rded-ish, it was Imperial navy and some marine transports.

I happen to think the shoehorning in of aircraft has been a bad thing, but I'm not optimistic enough to think the sisters will escape.

Good.

I really do care about the background, but on the general theme and feel level, not on pointless minutiae level of whether Sisters can have plasma pistols or whether Marine vehicles hover or not. I want each army to be thematically strong, and that also means visually. Giving each army their own unique vehicles is a big part of creating a visual theme, and if it contradicts some obscure decades old fluff bit, then that's absolutely fine. I really love how the Primaris (as awkward as their fluff is) have freed the marines from the shackles of the chapter organisation that was dreamed up ages ago when the game was completely different. We can get actual new stuff. And same goes for the Sisters; this line has been dormant for decades, being on life support with a very limited model line. Most of their units were just different configurations of the same basic metal models. I am really exited that there is a good chance that we're finally getting something new.

"Your society's broken, so who should we blame? Should we blame the rich, powerful people who caused it? No, lets blame the people with no power and no money and those immigrants who don't even have the vote. Yea, it must be their fething fault." - Iain M Banks

"The language of modern British politics is meant to sound benign. But words do not mean what they seem to mean. 'Reform' actually means 'cut' or 'end'. 'Flexibility' really means 'exploit'. 'Prudence' really means 'don't invest'. And 'efficient'? That means whatever you want it to mean, usually 'cut'. All really mean 'keep wages low for the masses, taxes low for the rich, profits high for the corporations, and accept the decline in public services and amenities this will cause'." - Robin McAlpine from Common Weal

Fair enough. I suppose I'm just weird in that I tend to like things because of what they are, rather than for what they might be if all the things I like about them were discarded


I actually get caring about details, I do that with some other franchises. I just (thankfully) can't get into that sort of mindset with 40K, It is just too big and chaotic and full of contradictions to begin with. In 40K the big changes like Primarchs returning bug me a lot, but I couldn't care less whether a Sister character has this or that made up energy pistol or whether basic marines with boltguns are called Tactical or Intercessors. So yeah, I too do care if things I like are discarded, it just happens that for me the things I like in 40K are bigger concepts and themes, not the technical minutiae.

Only the insane have strength enough to prosper. Only those who prosper may truly judge what is sane.

I love her, though I do hope we'll see some alternate weapon options in the kit, as a Canoness with surprise Eviscerator has always been a favourite of mine.

As for complaints about the collar- I initially thought it'd be a separate piece you just put into grooves on the shoulders but on closer inspection there seem to be seam lines (and not mould lines) suggesting they're integrated into the torso piece. Still, it's only plastic. You can cut the collar away and sub in some greenstuff for a smoother cloak.

I personally would opt for a fur collar.
