I wonder how much of a pain (or how expensive) it will be to get the Sisters once people start splitting up their boxes? Wouldn't mind a unit or two to paint, but not really interested in anything else there.

Emperor get's killed by Cypher or some other force in 40k 'End-Times' (or some other catastrophe that has a huge impact), Custodes and SoS don their armour again and go hunting for the killer. Not really that hard to advance the timeline and find an explanation.

If they sell well - its always possible that they will be released separately or as a new Imperial faction/s.

No, this is definitely an October product. Preorder should be on October 22, release on October 29 - it will be in the upcoming WD which is going into preorder on the 22nd and released on the 28th (friday). The game's date is not 100% confirmed yet, but the cover of that WD was leaked already and shows Burning of Prospero.

How much do you want to bet that the profile for Geigor Fell-Hand will imply that he is often called Bjorn by Russ?

Looking at the BaC releases, I wouldn't be surprised if they would release them seperatly

Aye same..

Had to chuckle, I glanced over when I saw the leak on facebook and said to my other half.. hmm the new Horus Heresy box has Sisters of Silence in it.. without any hesitation she said 'they're mine!' .. she also wants two boxes as she needs to have at least ten SoS and Custodes.. seems our 30K armies will be Wolves vs 1Ksons.. really glad I didn't sell my Calth, or undercoat it.. as some will require some Space Wolf peltage.

£95. That's a really good price. Wait a sec...

AUD$265? Two hundred and sixty five dollerydoos?

God Damn you GW. That's over AUD$100 more than what £95 is converted into AUD. "Shipping costs" and "fluctuating currency rates" do not account for an AUD$100 price hike per box, you thieves. You have literally priced this at 175% what the UK pays for it.

And it's worse for NZ, where the price is 193% the UK's price. What the fething feth GW?

To hell with you...

GW care not about the Pound losing its value.

At least they didn't make it cost more than Calth. That's something I suppose *shrug*.

Weak pound has nothing to do with it, they just charge what the market will bear. Regional pricing is just weird in the modern age. It seems weird that they can do it, but they're not the only ones at it. Not defending it though

Very exciting box. I don't care for wolves or ksons very much but can easily repurpose everything bar the characters, and plastic sisters and custodes? F yeah.

This looks great. I used Betrayal at Calth as a basis to rebuild my Space Marine army for 40k, but I think I will likely paint this one up as standard and actually use it for the boardgame.

Depends on several things:

The look and pricing of the new Sisters of Battle plastics

If the Sisters of Silence are also becoming a "current" 40k faction - they are def around post Heresy as shown in the Beast novel series.

Do the SOS get expanded on and/or released separately.

I am going to be all over auction sites for Tartaros Termies. The same rrp as Calth but a bit better value IMO.

My guess is that the Sisters of Silence are going to be part of the Sisters of Battle in the 41st millennium. Zealot witch hunting nuns would certainly have great need for a bunch of zealot witch hunting blanks. They will be an elite choice in the new codex I see my gut feeling.

Sisters of Battle main dex with a SoS mini dex that runs along side it ala scions? This would amuse me and at the same time fix how they could be shoehorned into the current time line.

The pricing for you guys is insane, obviously currency fluctuates but our Antipodean cousins are treated terribly.

Yah I liked the idea of the 30k and 40k custodians being wildly different like that.

As for the sos all I know it's stated their order still man the black ships who pick up the Rouge psykers to feed the emperor and astronomincon.

I wonder what kind of anti-psyker rules the Sisters will have? Could end up being a good deathstar-breaker.

I guess I'll buy a few. Should get my cash back just by selling marines alone - suspect them going for around 20ish on ebay. Besides of that it's pretty meh for me. Like "yay, that's all we need - more marines".

Now that we know plastic silent sisters are definitely a thing it makes me more inclined to believe plastic battle sisters - i could see them being rolled up together into one new book.

Its the same price in Australia as silver tower and BAC. Here in Japan it is the equivalent of £173 right now, but most retail companies dont change prices because of exhange rate fluctuation.
