Since they got stock allocated to them, not ordered themselves--that would likely mean this box is limited to 10 boxes per individual ordering.

My online supplier was told it's limited, but the rep hasn't told him the limits (yet),

so it may be a case of how many there available depending on how production goes, and GW stores may get more allocated closer to the time

I assume that’s 10 per person, not shop. Like Necron Destroyers when everyone went mad for them, they limited them to 10 per order.

I’m not worried anyway, maybe i’m overconfident, but I don’t think these will be gone within the hour, they’ll make thousands and thousands, hence the two week pre-order.

They were using the same sort of hype wording for the box release, I'm not convinced there will be anything new

Except there were new models that they hadn't previewed - the guys running around with metal tentacles.

Of course some of the brand new never before seen models might be further advances of old designs brought into new plastic sculpts for release. So they will be NEW just not NEW NEW; however they could also be totally new ideas as well. Sisters have a decent line of models for variety, but there's certainly room for a few more ideas within their force.

Also far as I recall isn't GW also pushing terrain for factions so a Sisters of Battle terrain feature is very likely to appear.

Not heard the word Miracle before in this context so yeah - I think so those dice don't look very exciting though.

Yes. Peter Pan (the stage play) was the first thing that sprang to my mind. The sister looks less like she’s flying than getting yanked around in a wire harness by some burly stagehand.

I wonder if Miracle Dice are a similar mechanic to some of their board games, whereby you roll the MD at the start of a game to set their roll values. You can then swap them in in place of for another dice roll mid-game. Would be pretty cool.

Destiny Dice from Tzeentch in AoS.

It's a neat mechanic but it would be a crap replacement for AoFs (at least index AoFs) for how much weaker it is than something like 'move twice', 'shoot twice' etc.

Unless you get like 12 a turn, then it'd be nuts.

I think the "act of faith" replacement are the 6 "Sacred Rites" cards.

However, what caught my eyes with the cards is the fact they got 38 stratagems.
That's a LOT.
Tau for comparison have 25, so does DA (26 if you count "the lion and the wolf"), deamons a mere 19.

I suspect they already have multiple stratagems for every order baked into the codex itself.

can neither confirm nor deny I lost track of what I've got right now.

Yeah thats a good number - can;t really compare to Marines as would need to add up all those available over ALL the codexes supplements and now PA where they got another load.

1 stratagem card for each subfaction
1 unique stratagem for each subfaction


that brings them down to 24 stratagems, which is inline with what others have

Do the subfactions usually get their own cards? I guess I've only bought the ironhands ones.

its the only way it makes sense
I'm also guessing the other 6 cards are your "acts of faith" and the dice are to mark what units are effected by what

Except my numbers were INCLUDING subfaction stratagems.
And i don't understand what you count. you counted 2 stratagems for each subfaction?
Because AFAIK they don't make cards for the subfactions themselves.
