in terms of a boost to sisters, I've met more then a few people starting a sisters army (myself) and even talked to one guy whose not gotten into 40k, who said he was always promising himself he would if they ever did plastic sisters

I think its much more likely that they simply didn't have the manpower, and wanted to spend their time on new things.


In fairness, this is exactly why Forgeworld exists. They sell things that aren't popular enough to justify mass market production and distribution using a direct sales model and material with a lower initial investment.

Yeah. Totally. My guess (and its just a guess) is that the Repressor disappeared for a bunch of reasons, including a lost or broken mold (and lack of time or interest to fix it), more interest in perusing projects other projects and lack of overall manpower. Its almost certainly not a lack of demand (although if demand is the only metric theres very probably several other kits with higher demand that they could bring back).

I wish I knew more about how FW operated. I've read some interviews and articles over the years and its always very interesting.

I'm just surprised the Repressor wasn't integrated into the new Rhino as a dual kit. It's not exactly a huge change.

The proper term for miniatures is literally Scale Models. Thats why Scale is important.

Scale makes our armies and battles feel right. Thats why mixing 20mm scale miniatures with 32mm scale miniatures feels wrong and looks butt ugly.


No, the term miniature means a small version of something. GW has never produced scale models and after Rogue Trader has never even mentioned a ground scale—for which it’s miniatures have never been in scale with. Hell, the miniatures aren’t even in scale with themselves since their hands, heads and weapons are Gwar-ishly oversized.

So can we just accept size creep and enjoy well produced models that are indeed head and shoulders better than their 1987 originals.

They havent. The first part of your statement is alright, but "to be more in scale"? That's just, like, your opinion man! I think GW made them bigger because they think it looks cooler, don't care about scale at all.

Careful asking for pictures like this! That's how you get pictures posted!

Wait actually it was SFW!
Amelia Novella for scale only . Notice she isn't on the black plastic base.
To answer the question, the flowery embroidery and the lettering on the side are extra plates that you can glue on or not, the lettering on the front is an integral part of the front plate.
I also got the big flamethrower model, you can see it in the background. One of the front plates was bended quite a bit, I put it over boiling water to soften it and unbend it. All in all don't expect perfectly fitting pieces, it requires some work on the assembly. And the models come with tons of small extra part, I didn't use them all, they went to my bitz box. Want pictures of the extra bitz too?

Got a phone call from GW this afternoon about my box set. They had to do a second print run, it will have all the same stuff as the first run and I should get it on the 19th. They said that the limiting factor is the paper parts.

While this is going to be annoying for you, this is, IMHO good news. Sisters where delayed as long as they where because certain people at GW where apparently convinced no one would buy a female army, and these boxes are very VERY well selling, now however sisters look to be a VERY popular army. This'll proably lead to more female representation in other armies too

I don't want to look back through dozens of pages so I'll ask once:

Is there any rumors/confirmation that there will be another run of army boxes at a later date?

Obviously the individual squads/models and codex will come out separately after the new year. I usually get several hundred dollars for Christmas to spend at my local store to spend on 40k and I would love a second chance at an army box like the one just released that was sold out in like 10 minutes.

There are plenty of boxes available online. A quick search on ebay shows several boxes at or below retail cost.

Well, I'm not sure. I mean, you know, GW has already been doing pretty well in that regard lately.
If you look at AoS, for instance, the Stormcast got (boobplaty) female members, the Chaos barbarians got (non-cheesecaky, beefy) female warriors, and the Chaos warrior proper just got some female heads too!
Really among the new models, the only one that are missing female options are the new Dwarves, and maybe the Orcs and Gobelins, skeletons being skeletons…
For 40k it's similar, later non-CSM Chaos release all had some female options I think.

It's a bit hard to say since GW is still in a state of transition. Yes, Age of Sigmar has visibly made steps in the right direction. You can also see the difference between the all male first wave of Genestealer Cults and the second wave that has a number of female sculpts. How far apart were those released? Two and a half years?

Then you have not so shining examples in Necromunda where four of the house gangs are mixed but only Van Saar and Delaque have a token female per five man sprue while Cawdor and Orlock don't have a female sculpt at all. The extra annoying thing with the latter is that there's even artwork of a female Orlock ganger in one of the first Gang War books. And the gangs were conceptualized and realized pretty much at the same time, and as the former two houses show the sculptors very well thought of the appeal the inclusion of female miniatures might have, while not following through with the idea with the other houses.

I don't know if GW is going to draw any conclusions from the popularity of Sisters, but if they do I hope it means they won't be quite so hesitant and inconsistent in the future. If that's what they were planning to implement all along, so much the better, but a little reinforcement can't hurt.

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!

Concrete no, but I wouldn't be surprised if they took the same slot GSC did last year- preorders start the last week of January, actually on sale in February across two weeks.

Also the situation report had this to say:
https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/11/18/sisters-of-battle-situation-report/
The Codex
The new codex itself features all these units and more. For those who do miss out on the Army Set, January is right around the corner, so you’ll be able to pre-order it in no time.


Keep in mind, also, that it may not all come at once. The open day article:
https://www.warhammer-community.com/2019/11/30/reveals-from-the-warhammer-40000-open-daygw-homepage-post-1/

features the repentia and rather than January, they say 'sometime next year.' I wouldn't be surprised if there was a second wave... later.

Its going to be a minimum of 8 kits (plus the cannoness), if they shove all three vehicles in one box. That's unlikely to all come out at once.

Based on the models, it's pretty clear that exorcist and immolator are a double kit, but rhino is its own kit. The first two being "deimos pattern plastic rhino chassis", the third not being deimos, lol.

Given the lack of images of seraphim/zephirym (other than the monokit from the army box), odds are pretty good those will be last. Maybe rets as well, thinking about it. Has there been any pic with a multimelta sister yet?

Codex release is somewhere between the 11th and the 1st.
I'd lean toward the first.

FFS, that would be massively annoying. A lot of people want to start a brand new Sister army and not being able to buy all models in January would make things difficult. Having this gap between the limited edition box and the actual release is already irksome enough.

Alos understand that all employee orders were cancelled and those boxes heading to customers - part of the reason for 2nd print run.

You cannot just will an entire product line into existence. I understand the frustration, but seriously, they've done a massive amount of goodwill with this project, interrupting their preexisting development schedule for the fans who stuck with it through the years. If I have to wait to get my hands on the entire line until Febuary, March or even May, I'm happy to do so.
