Surely it’s not that limited? I mean they’re making new sprues for this and want people to buy into what may as well be a new army. 2 week pre-order to me suggests they’re making a gak ton of these.

Wouldn't they just release it at the same time they release everything, which is midday in whatever country you're in?

UK has always been 10am as far as I can remember.

That is, for pre-orders.

Digital releases, like Codexes, on the Apple store are midnight on day of release.

Don't know about anything else.

Maybe I'm not thinking eeeeevil enough to be gw, but is there the possibility that with the big box on two week pre-order this week there's still the possibility of the codex going up for a one week pre-order next week? So it all flops out at the same time..

Still, going to grab that boxed set. Always fancied a sisters force and couldn't afford the metal!

No. We’ve seen the release schedule for the rest of the year (leaked, been spot on so far). This is all the sisters are getting before Christmas.

I like that they're getting more creative with purity seals.

Major Chip Hazard's wax seal had a little fist in it.
Her seal is shaped like a rose.

Small details go a long way.

GW has collectively lost the ability to sculpt any kind of jump pack poses... or in general, leg poses. I dont understand how none of them have an anatomy figure nearby to figure this stuff out.

Whats wrong with this pose or anatomy? As a professional illustrator who draws people in action poses for a living it looks just fine to me.

People who don't know much about stuff like to use criticism to obscure their lack of knowledge, with the ultimate hope being that their vague critiques said with unearned conviction will make them appear to have a level of expertise far beyond their actual ken.



(The first guys comment was fine as it was a subjective take that didn't try to do anything more than present an opinion.)

There's nothing really wrong with that model's pose. I think what's making it look wrong to some people is the way they've painted her eyes so she's gazing up into space like she's stoned. She should be staring along the line of her sword like she's pointing at the heretic she's going to slay next, because that's what her pose suggests. The fault lies with the painter, not the sculptor (as is common with GW's marketing photos of new models for some reason).

The pose is basically pure pantomime Peter Pan just with added plasma pistol.

Around here, pre-orders go up at 11 CET to coincide with your 10 GMT release.

I think GW works with trade zones like the EU or North America so a shop in one time zone can't get a leg up on another one in a different time zone.

I think the "problem" with the pose is that it looks wrong given the height of the support strut.

It looks a lot like a "leaping take off" yet she is already high in the air.

Actually it kinda looks like a "landing" pose to me, much more than taking off.

My only issue is the tabard twisting around her leg messes with the lines a bit, giving a bit of a 3 footed look from this angle. Otherwise, I like it just fine, and if the tabard was more contrasting, or the model rotated a tad, it would look fine

Exactly what I was about to say. Wrapping your leg around your tabard like that looks like a good way to roll an ankle on landing. Otherwise the pose looks fine to me.

I think she looks just a bit too happy. I'd tilt her over and point the sword more upward so that it looks like she's flying sideways and keeping her left foot out of reach of her enemies.
