Yeah, I'm really hoping that as well and if they were smart that's what they'd do.


Would be nice if there was a generic priest in that kit that could be on top, of if you build the special character one, you end up with a priest on foot. Like the necron CCB.

I mean it could be a generic Sister rather than a Priest, but yeah. That would be good.

Speaking of which, where's the Priesthood at? The Sisters have to go war with their chanting bearded lunatics wearing sack-cloth and wielding weapons that are just as much a danger to themselves as the enemy!

Well when I see every player running three of them, I'll come back an apologize. (That's not going to happen though and we all know it.)

Also, I gave you three examples.

Here they are again for convenience.

It's ulgy.
It'll likely have trash rules.

1 - Your opinion, not any kind of fact - an opinion not shared by the vast majority, judging by online reaction.
2 - Speculation - we’ll know in a week so any posturing now is silly.
3 - Tell that to Knights.

Finally, it’s a Special Character so you couldn’t run three anyway. Better luck with your next hot take!


1. Fine by me.

2. Let's see, just about all the new stuff they've put out this year has been really lackluster in the rules. Anyone running the new primaris tanks? No, no they're not.

3. I don't see many knights anymore, I do see armies footslogging their basic troops, bought up to 11 though.

4. Didn't know it was a special character. In my opinion, that makes it even worse.


So basically...

1. You're wrong based upon recent responses.
2. Lolz all around....Executioners are around, just look outside your cave.
3. Still around.

You're doing great so far, what a legend!

A question, in case i missed something. are there any prominent sisters characters that aren't either currently or formerly Order of Our Martyred Lady?

One of the problems the Sisters have had over time is that there haven't been many SC models produced for the faction - and the two that were made in 2nd ed were both men.


2nd ed also had Saint Praxedes?

The more I think about it, the less impactful Miracle Dice are going to be.

Reason? I play Disciples of Tzeentch and you start the game with 9 dice in the bank. I often spend 4-6 of those in turn one, because if I don't I might not get much of a turn two or any turn three at all. Most of those are spent on spellcasting, which are often quite powerful in AoS, especially for Tzeentch.

Sisters are starting with maybe 2-3 at the start of turn one, depending on choices? And they don't have psykers handing out 4-6 mortal wounds per power. So Sisters don't have good synergy with this particular mechanic.


Their whole AT department is basically on weapons that have d6 damage and possibly d6 shots. Getting reliable damage output from those is rather handy. Not to mention that there are situations where quaranteed kill of a character for example is more useful than it automatic 5 for example might sound. Automatic 5 damage to knight isn't that big deal. Automatic 5 to W5 character? Splat.

Ah yes how nice of you to make rigged claim that's literally impossible to fill Lol. Shows how unsure you must be when you make claim it needs to be fielded in 3's to not be DOA when it's unique so can be fielded max 1 to begin with ;-)

Guess you ain't betting any money then since you seem to know you would lose that bet.

The Sister's thing is Faith and the Holy Trinity, I'd be surprised if they added anything to the Retributors. But we do have vague promises of new things such as Zephyrim and the Pulpit, so who knows what else will sneak in there?

We've had Litanies and the Book of St Lucius confirmed. The others from the beta were the Blade of Admonition, Brazier of Eternal Flame, Mantle of Ophelia, and the Wrath of the Emperor. So a beatstick, an anti-psyker, a save booster and a decent pistol. None related to faith... But this seems like a big deal of a release, so maybe we'll see some of the older ones like the Axe of Retribution and the Cloak of St Aspira make a comeback too.

Tomorrow morning is going to be fun, going to be trying to order the 3rd Siege of Terra book from GW and the sisters box from a 3rd party at the same time, so hopefully the sell out times won't be too crazy (or GW will actually have released enough to meet demand!).

They all tie into Faith. The Blade of Admonition was the weapon thet ended the Age of Apostasy, the sword of a most revered Saint. I expect them to all return, though I wouldn't miss the Wrath of the Emperor.

just got this email from Darksphere

As announced by Games Workshop the sisters box goes up for preorder tomorrow for a launch on Black Friday (you can see the box contents at https://www.warhammer-community.com/…/sisters-of-battle-ar…/ ).

Demand for this is very high and stock for this will be very limited. Rather than have a mad scramble on tomorrow morning we have opened a Register of Interest.

GW haven't announced the price yet but because of the very limited numbers we will not be doing our usual discount on this item. It will also be limited to 1 per customer.

If you wish to place your name on the Register of Interest list please fill out the form in the link below. The form will be removed once we hit our incoming stock numbers:

https://forms.gle/Dp3KekAVqCQJCW1E8

Please note we are not allowed to tell you how many we are receiving or what the discount will be until Saturday at 10am when we are officially allowed to discuss it. This is not us being secretive or having the chance to implement our advanced ninja training, this is us complying with Games Workshop policy


further evidence that this box is going to be in really short supply, and note they're NOT going to be offering the normal discount (any discount?)

You can always advance. Is the enemy just out of your sweet flamer range? Advance and get on up there.

Please please please people learn the rules.
Flamers and heavy flamers are both assault weapons. YES, even the HEAVY flamer is an ASSAULT weapon. So is the Immolator special Immolation Flamer.
That means you can already advance with a flamer/heavy flamer and shoot with it! You just get -1 to hit, but you don't roll to hit anyway.

The Argent shroud does nothing, NOTHING for flamers. It's useful if you get flamers in the same unit as non-flamers, though. But for a 4 flamers, 1 combi-flamer dominion unit, (the one we all know and love for MAXIMUM FLAMERIZING when you don't care about being the most competitive) it's just 2 extra bolter shots at -1 to hit still. And for immolation immolators, it changes literally nothing.
