Honestly, I generally do too. There is nothing in here I hate in terms of the sculpts. I think the Repentia could be better, but I want to see what sprue options there are (which I suppose will be little to none), and I think once I convert the tops into ragged tabards I'll like them just fine. I even like the Cannoness collar nearly everyone seems to hate.

I'm glad I kept open some shelf space for these guys.

The only thing I don't like is how crappy that Cannonness sprue is. No alternate weapons, no alternate heads? That's just lazy. Even if the heads are swappable with the rest of the sister heads, there was plenty of room in there for a few extra bits to jazz the model up a little. It seems like even as GWS sculpts get better and better, as a modeller they seem to get more boring in terms of lack of options and posing. Not a problem specific to this release, just kind of sad this is the direction they continue to trend into.

no time this afternoon before my Warcry match to peruse all 85 pages.. Forgive if this is repetition, but two questions:

have they guaranteed Kill Team rules for the Sisters?

and secondly, does a vehicle come it the box?

Some nice art in there.
I love the look of those swords. Those look much much better than the sword the Cannoness has with the weird pommel bit. Shield on that sister looks cool, love the detail.

That big art...oddly, I see a lot I don't like. The repentia make me cringe, the Pengine doesn't look as big or powerful or imposing as other art of its older version. Arco looks good though.

The sister charging in with the sword has a pose that I've seen in a million space marine pics. Worst offender to me is the Seraphim who looks like she's taking a dump.

Aside from that I love the older style art feel they've got going on.

I didn't consider the saint in the background being generic- I'm certainly hoping for generic.

If a sister unit comes with shield and weapon...I dunno. Sword and board is the crusaders shtick, maul and board seems more of a dark angel one. Honestly don't know how I feel about mellee sisters when there's already oother armies that have a signature look or a battle conclave unit that fills their niche...

They look good to me - What is that flying humaniod thing in the art work? Vaguely like a chicken-cheribum-griffen-blood angel. Could work for me though!

Absolutely nothing, 3rd edition codex had art of Sister with the same loadout, five editions later and they didn't appear even in BL books, never mind actual model, even KT or BSF one...

It really started with the chaos release. The first picture of the tiny spider monster (Urban Conquest art?) that became a model. This followed by the Arch Discordant (way in the back of artwork) and the chaos chaplain dude (in same artwork). Not saying it's a specific pattern, but the ark could really be a thing and would sit in a Sisters army quite well.

Except that big CSM art with terminator champion with two handed flaming mace squaring off against primaris gravis captain never materialized. Ditto with honor guard chapter banner held by (primaris ?) HG ancient behind said captain. And that was centrepiece promo art, not look-and-forget codex picture, sooo...

What you've missed is that the time passed is precisely so that the existing designs could be transferred to plastic.

The studio (or specifically Jes Goodwin) has always been staunchly against the idea of redesigning sisters, and they've said as much on multiple occasions. And until now, the technology GW were using just wasn't up to rendering this design in plastic.

We're getting plastic sisters now precisely because GW can now produce plastic models that look like the metal ones.


Couldn't the same be said for all the necromunda models that were redone/ rereleased. They did modify them and they still kept more of the same style yet made the sculpts a bit better overall. Looking at the clan models from before and then the remakes I think GW did a fantastic job. I just don't see the same thing with the new SoB or whatever fake Latin name GW wants to give there stuff nowadays. When I see the sculpts a part of me was hoping for a subtle change like they did in Necromunda is all I am saying. They don't need to go all out like RH did. I am glad RH did their thing though. It both filled a gap in the aged non available metal models and gave people kind of what they wanted as it was a Kickstarter so it actually took in the opinions of their customers, unlike GW who stayed stagnent for how many years again, despite numerous people voicing their opinions, even in their massive survey. Sister's were in demand. GW ignored it. Competition made some money and now GW wants to arrive late to the party wearing yesteryears dress.

The only thing really not retro will surely be their obnoxious prices which I am sure will end up shell shocking some. I am thinking it will be to the tune of $50 USD for 5. It is amazing how nothing has remotely mentioned pricing yet? I was just hoping for a more necromunda style approach to an aged design. Call me crazy if you wish as it is just an opinion.

Clearly not, since they were updated. And no, they didn't keep the same style. Most of the current gangs bear at best only a passing resemblance to their forebears.


You seem to be still missing the point, though - yes, GW could have updated the look of the Sisters. They didn't want to, which is why it's taken so long to get them in plastic... and most Sisters fans, from what I've seen, are more than happy that they didn't.

Change for the sake of change is not a good thing. If the existing design works both aesthetically and mechanically, there is no particular reason to change it, and doing so serves no purpose other than to irritate people who have existing collections.

No, it isn't amazing how nothing has remotely mentioned pricing yet. Prices are known as soon as they are leaked via some retailer, and only confirmed for all currencies when the products are up on the webstore. They're not typically the stuff of Warhammer Community preview articles. But yeah, who knows, maybe one of the next Battle Sister Bulletins will be "here's a preview of the eyewatering pricetags that will be adorning this lovely new range. Isn't it exciting!".
As for the redesign, well, we are bound to disagree. Many people quite clearly don't want something different, they want SoB that look like SoB. In plastic. And both today and 10 years from now, that design stands up a lot better than the mostly cringey stuff produced by Raging Heroes.

The Genestealer Cult characters have some options at least. Locus has a bunch of different heads, the Magus.. well, just the one option for a different left hand. Still, it's more than nothing. If anything, this seems like something that would merely help competitors that can simply create similar characters in new poses, for added variation in your force.

A terrain piece similar to the Noctilith Crown perhaps? I'd buy at least two.

The article does have me curious though. It would be odd to have Arco-flagellants and Penitent Engines without a plastic Ministronum Priest to control them. A separate character blister pack, maybe?

The sword and board sister could be either a Celestian Superior or a Palatine if they give us a Lieutenant-style battle leader.

She certainly could be with a bit of work. That's one of the great things about plastics - much easier to modify.


So you honestly think there will be rules for a jump-pack Canoness?


Probably, not. But given the example of Space marines using stratagems to give unit champions, special issue equipment, relics, and warlord traits. We maybe able to tool her pretty pretty well. There's also the option of taking a living saint; either generic or named she'll have the fly rule.

Aiight sparky. No need to jump down my throat. And who cares if it appears or doesn't appear in BL books? When has that ever meant anything.

I just think it looks cool, and would be a great option for Celestians, that's all.

angel of death 007 wrote:

Not really. Cawdor, Orlocks and Escher remain roughly the same as they once were. Goliaths have a similar style (with a little less punk/bondage going on) but are much bigger. Van Saar have changed quite a bit, in both the style of their suits and their heads (they're no longer a gang of well groomed men). And the new Delaques look nothing like the old Delaques (unless you count "are bald" as being their single defining trait), going from trenchcoat mafia to Dark City villains.

Compared to what we've seen of Sisters or even the new Banshee, the Necro minis are vastly different from the originals.

Nah, he's not on a separate sprue. The only one that came on a separate sprue was Mallex, and he was released alongside the CSM. It's worth noting that the cultist champion from the other Blackstone supplement also got put on a separate sprue. Sadly, the Crusader and other adventurers are on the same sprue.

Given how the old sisters are currently priced, the cost will go down. $50 for 5 is unlikely- not even dire avengers or scions are that bad.
A basic sisters squad is currently $80, with single models (if, for example you want squads that aren't 1 meltagun and 1 stormbolter) being an extra $15 each.
Retributors are $110.

Granted, the canoness will definitely be more than the current $15 one, and the immolator will likely be more than $40, but the squads should definitely see a cost decrease (and better options per box).


Efficiency is the highest virtue.
