I assume it’ll be a full on Sisters Rhino since the Rhino’s from GW are now Razorback kits.

(And also yet another total rework of the faith system, yawn)

If true that's a HUUUUUGE buuf. Going from "1 to 6 shots", to "3 to 9 shots", with a distribution more centered on the average (which is, now, 6).
But it's a random user on the bad forum so...


They stated they are going to make the exorcist less random, I can see 3d3 S7 ap-3


Alternately they could just be Heavy 6 and not waste everyone's time.
GW really needs to break off with these heavily weighted pointless dice rolls.

Efficiency is the highest virtue.

Yes, this!

The exorcist is the one vehicle in the game that actually should NOT be just Heavy 6 or w/e. The whole fluff behind the exorcist is that the Admech tune them so infrequently that they're really temperamental. They were D6 shots all the way back to 5th edition I believe.

Try as far back as 3rd. The point is the Adepta Sororitas needs reliable longer range firepower. No one wants to pay 150 points for a single weapon tank that fires once each round for 2 plus rounds.

Let's compromise between the “Not too many randomness” people and the “I love to roll dice people” people.
Make the exorcist 6D1 shots!

Further, it's been 1d6 shots since codex Witchh7nters which predates 5th. It's one of its defining and endearing character flaws.

one is random enough, 2 is less so, 3 is just painful. I mean if I could launch meltamissles with marines, I'd pay waaaaay more points than I currently do.

I just hope that the new Exorcist model looks as dope as the current one. if it has a missle modeled launching, I would die.

The sisters look amazing, and im totally psyched they have arcos in the set. Im sorely tempted but, as with all other big boxes of multiple kits, id be extremely worried about the condition of the details on the models once I received them. Ive lost count of the number of times ive had to have stuff replaced because of crushed faces, mutliple flattened rivets etc

3 SPRUUUUUEESSSS!!!!

I'm not going to re-read the lunacy that is the last few pages of this thread, but I'd be very surprised if anyone actually said that. Even that one guy banging on about how relatively difficult it might be for an Inquisitor to acquire power armour, I don't think even that guy said that.

Was there supposed to be another SoB Bulletin the other day, or did I miss something? Have they discontinued it?

They're finished doing bulletins, as the release is imminent for the box.

I too am disappointed that the release of a product means I don’t get to see previews for it anymore...

I am disappointed that there are no more bulletin, as there is still plenty of things to be previewed. All the rules, for instance. We didn't get any preview on the rules. And the box isn't released yet, not even in preorder.
I'm fully in agreement with Pendix despite your sarcasm toward him.

I can understand that. We're on the Psychic Awakening however for previews on Mondays now.

Rules and more previews won't kick in until they put the Sisters on pre-order it seems.

Agreed. I still need to see what they did to the Exorcist!

Plus the Immolator since it looks like they're dropping the modified Rhino chassis look of the old one.

Huh. I guess I got mixed up. But since it's been more than 2 weeks since the 7th, I think we can say they're not doing anymore.

Thankyou! And thankyou to everyone else who gets that being disappointed in the end/hiatus (or whatever) of the bulletin isn't some non-nonsensical consumer conditioned knee-jerk response.

The last bulletin came out a week early due to the leaks. I think that has thrown off the schedule. We had one on sep 30th and one on Oct 7th. If we assume that should have been the 14th we can expect another one next Monday.

I agree with Chikout, GW probably had a schedule for the bulletins, so we might see a bulletin next monday, if not then we're probably done with the sister bulletins

Was just looking at the bulletins yesterday and came to the same conclusion. There's plenty for them left to show - even within the things we know are coming: arco-flagellants from their full box, sprue pics from full kits, rules, and then of course new units, if any. There's at least this alternative build of the penitent engine. I'd expect previews to continue up until the release of the full range, not stopping them a bit before this one starter box. Either that, or save it up for more frequent previews and updates closer to the release (of the full range).

Necrons say "hi". They don't have any good AT that doesn't roll d6 or d3 for shots.
