I am pleasantly surprised with ToSK. Definitely going to be removing the 3 top cherubs, but very pleased with it otherwise. Already planing on how to magnetize the sisters on it for wound/relic tracking purposes. What size base it that anyway?

Repentia definitely look better with paint on them. Still not a big fan of the actual outfits, but getting used to them. Anyhow beats the former S&M gear look as far as I'm concerned.
Now that we see them all coloured-in, I'm somewhat less of a fan of the power armour ports. Will probably paint them very differently or shave them off; the issue is that they now distract from the other metal bits like the pins and pointed bands embedded in their flesh.
Speaking of which, were people asking for some more painful looking pins and things? New kit certainly got you covered - also for some more classic-looking hoods.



The Triumph looks better every time I glance at it. The heavy robes of the surrounding figures, the calmness of the whole procession, the gear on the leader.. great kit. Yes, the first thought in my mind was "by the Emperor, how is anybody going to transport that thing with those fragile cherubs floating around", but in this particular case they really do add to the scene, making it much more impressive, and more support structures (or flight stands) just wouldn't look as good.
Glad they kept the figures relatively close together to keep the whole thing a reasonably sensible size at least.
Depending on the price, I might be tempted to pick it up and use the pieces for all kinds of other things. Make the attendants into characters (love the look of those heavy robes), make the leader into a fighty Canoness and keep the rest for scenery/objective markers/maybe even to put on top of a tank, because why not, if they can put stained glass windows up there, this is nothing.

They're taller, but also thinner. Old metal sisters look more like squats in comparison.

Honestly, the difference in size isn't that bad after all.

I like the Triumph. I might actually have to get two, one for the Triumph itself and another for the future Inquisitor that's hiding in the procession.

I think all of the sisters on it could be used for additional poses of battleline Sororitas.

This is a fosho purchase for myself. The conversion possibilities of this, the pulpit and whatever the terrain ends up to be seem limitless.

Sprue time!



That's tiny. I'm sorry.

But it does show us that the sprue has:

1x Heavy Flamer
1x Heavy Bolter
4x Meltaguns
4x Flamers
Between 2x and 4x Storm Bolters (I think...)

Sprue has all 10 Sisters on their, and their poses appear to be very set in stone.

Hopefully that's just the Troops/celesian/dominion box and retributors get their own box or that's going to be a REAL pain...

well.. for the all of 3 months before a half dozen decent third party sources pop up.

Almost certainly. IIRC, there was mention of a retributor kit. Should come with the various ammo cherubs that dont seem to be on this sprue.

Interesting. I think I'm counting 31 or 32 heads.
Obviously there are 17 on the third sprue, 7 on the second (4 grouped and 3 more individually), and 7 or 8 on the first (2 pair on the lower half with a fifth below, 2 pair about in the middle of the upper half and maybe an 8th to the right of the reliquary, but I'm not 100% on that last one)
Most of the ones on the third sprue are helmets.

There are many helms because Celestians get fancy helmets.

From the Retributor box, of course.

Well, that's an interesting thing, as there may well not be enough helmeted heads for both.

I'm reasonably sure all 17 on sprue three are helmets. I'm not so sure that _any_ of the other 14-15 heads have helmets.
2 of the heads on sprue two might be, but they also might just be full views of the hair, with no face showing.

If so, i guess you could use a 'celestian' head as the sister superior for a battle squad, but if not, you've got a couple models with extra (or lacking) iconography, or no helmets.

I actually rather liked the S and M repentia, these new kits being plastic is cool but not nearly as dear to me. However I do play DE so that may explain my love of the old models..

I think I’ve identified the missing storm bolter parts, at least partially by eliminating regular bolter parts; let me know if you think I missed or misidentified anything:

That's very helpful... for anyone who isn't colour blind.

I have great difficulty telling the difference between the colour you've chosen for bolters and the colour you've chosen for Storm Bolters. Everything else I can work out on my own.

Basically it looks like there's 4 Stormbolters - 2 on frame 1, and 1 on each of the other 2 frames.

Oops, didn’t know that. Try this, no bolters:

..thats actually VERY nice. i didn't think they'd remotely do that based on the images they sent about.

that means the sisters in that box can easily serve as dominions in any configuration you could want, if you wish. huh!

Or be fairly easily split into two 5-strong squads with double special (ie Stormbolters) super easy.

Is this the most densely special weapon packed kit out there? Maybe only the devastator kit can compare.

This is how you do it, GW! Feth the chaos terminator kit.

Dakka does have White Knights and is also rather infamous for it's Black Knights. A new edition brings out the passionate and not all of them are good at expressing themselves in written form. There have been plenty of hysterical responses from both sides so far. So we descend into pointless bickering with neither side listening to each other. So posting here becomes more masturbation than conversation.

A closer match would be the sternguard kit, which, IIRC, has 2 of each combi AND special. Plus a HB and a HF for a 5 man box. Of course, it’s $50 for 5 guys.

I was honestly expecting 2 of each special in the basic troop box, and only one heavy. If you wanted more/different heavies, the retributior box would have them (like if you want non-ML options for your tac squads) and if you wanted to spam specials, just buy more boxes.

Pleasantly surprised by the contents of the sprues.

it's defiantly a good kit. I could find some stuff about this release I could complain about if I wanted to, such as sisters really need another SoB HQ choice that we didn't get etc. but by and alrge I feel they've done right by sisters with this release
