Really like that one.

The only gripe I have is the pistol in the shield. Without it the halberd would at least seem to be somewhat handable. Like this? She has to use that whole thing with one arm.

Those new models fill up a role that no plastic GW kit provides (heavy armored infantries), so I'm a big fan of those terminator style sisters.

Crusaders are still legacy of the old metal roster, they need to be either phased out or updated with a plastic kit. These girls can be the right solution.

Like Galas, I'm not loving that shield, although it may be just the colour they chose. The rest is great.
Wonder why they chose the words "future publication" rather than just specifically state new codex?

This is another model taken from the image in the stained glass window (well, melee sisters, and it did state maces would be options too).

Right behind you.

Because there's a possibility that the "future publication" was both a new codex and a supplement book.

A minor quibble is how can she use a polearm with 1 hand. You need two hands to use a polearm, but one hand is holding the shield. Can they sling the shields on their back, or something (magnetics like marines?), during melee?

The first of the new sister models I'm actually excited for (Palantine is cool too.)

Interesting that its a unit. Wonder what else we've got coming

We know that there's been some movement towards a CAD file at least, given the gent from Escalation/Combat Arena.

I sure hope that Sororita isn't holding her shield with her hand but rather, that it's attached to her glove armor, because a polearm is decisively not a one-handed weapon.

It looks to be similar to the 'Combat Shields' we see on Marines, with an integrated bolt pistol and a clamp that locks the shield around the arm.

There is a certain precedent for art depicting people wielding a halberd in one hand and a shield in the other and the exact reasoning behind those depictions we don't rightly know today.

As for the celestian here, I don't think we know 100% the intention until we can get an in-person look at the mini and see how the shield is supposed to be attached, but like what's been said elsewhere it could be strapped to the arm allowing the hand to grip the halberd, or it could be intended to be wielded as the celestians close ranks, then dropped as they enter melee range. or kept up by the foreward rank while the rear ranks chop down.

This new wave of sob is pretty bad so far imo. This melee unit is not as bad as the not-terminators, but i dont really like it either. Shame since i really liked pretty much all of the models of the first release

I'd be surprised if either unit made it into the next Codex.

...What marine unit is the mini walker suit with the heavy bolter and the sword copying? You know Killa Kanz aren't a marine unit right? Also the new tank is literally a blinged up Leman Russ, isn't it? With a battlecannon and everything?

GW, this isn't how you use a long halberd or equip an halbardier...


Beyond that it's an nice model, but with shield no. just no. Remove shield make halbedier work again.

My personal assumption is power armor.

Look at your average bolter, it's the size of a human torso but sisters are modeled using it one handed in some cases. Because they have power armor. I have little problem with them using polearms one handed for the same reason.

That said, I agree that polearm + shield w/ bolt (pistol?) weapon is a bit dumb from a practical perspective, but you can model them with maces if you want.

I’m assuming this to be the case, like with the Combat Shield on a SM company champion.

Ah, I see you've purged the Invictor Tactical Warsuit from your memory. I don't blame you, that model is a monstrosity and I too wish I could forget it existed.

I also think the new SoB tank has a lot more in common with the Predator than the Leman Russ, looking at the main body and tracks.

So far SMs only had either a pistol or strapped to the arm not both.

My concern with these Sisters releases is like Marines they seem to be just producing new kits to cover ever more weaknesses.

I'm not going to worry too much though until they start producing one supplement for each sister's order.

What's wrong with the Invictor? The Heavy Bolter being used as a Pistol is kinda silly but I'm fine with it otherwise.

Yup, that's the way, keep 'em coming. Sisters have a lot of really cool stuff now. Love the fact how they first gave us new versions of all the old stuff, and now keep adding new stuff as well.
