"Plastic Sisters of Battle!" "Oh, we're going to get some comments about that let's change the subject."

Glad to know they can be tongue in cheek about it!

Disclaimer: My YMDC answers are from a "What the rules, as written in the rulebook, actually say" perspective, not a "What I wish the rules said" perspective.
Because some people get their knickers in a twist, I'll list these RaW 'oddities' in my sig. Sadly GW's promise of fixing their broken rules has itself been broken. RaW you cannot advance and then fire assault weapons, you can't shoot pistols if within 1" of an enemy; "minimum" ranges don't work; Seraphim have to re-roll saves that "fail" pre-re-roll; the game simply breaks if you ever have more than one wounded model in a unit; the game also breaks if a single rule ever tries to do multiple things simultaneously; Khârn punches himself in the face if he's not near some meatshields; Librarians on Bikes are locked to the Index power list, Howling Banshees can't declare a charge further than 12"; Spore Mines have an infinite range; Shroudpsalm technically doesn't do anything, only enemy models, not friendly models, have permission to move on top of a Skyshield Landing Pad; T'au have access to stackable Ignore Wounds (albeit against Mortal Wounds only); the T'au Early Warning Override Support System only works if a unit is "teleporting to the battlefield", not just arriving mid-battle; you can only ever use the Deathwatch Teleportarium Stratagem "once", and then never again in any battle after you use it; if a model splits fire, each weapon must target a different unit; a Tyrant Guard with Lashwhip can absorb an infinite amount of damage via Shieldwall between the time they die and the time they fight; Chapter Tactics on Successor Chapters don't actually do anything; Codex Leman Russ's can take an infinite amount of Hunter-Killer Missiles, Storm Bolters and Heavy Stubbers; Imothekh's 'Lord of the Storm' ability hits the "target unit" twice; "Airborne" units can't be charged by non-FLY units, but can be Heroically Intervened into, piled into, or consolidated into just fine by non-FLY units; Wave Serpents cannot be legally charged at by any model with a standard base; and Slab Shields, along with the 'Take Cover!' stratagem no longer have any effect.

No hints as to what will be released next year, disappointing. :/

I think you’ve misunderstood the words “2017 year in review” on a fairly fundamental level there, chief.

I don't think so... I was just expecting that after some time spent looking back on the 'fun times' we've had, they'd maybe spend a few seconds to tease what we can look forward to in the new year.

That's just WarhammerTV, all their videos have comments disabled.

And a good thing too. We already have enough spergyness without needing people clogging up their phenomenal tutorials.

Again. They pulled the rug on Sisters players last year too. I'm sure it's greatly appreciated.

I thought it was funny when Peach needled Duncan over the Mortarion painting video....usually these are up the moment a model comes out, But Duncan's how to paint Mortarion vid didn't show up until over two months after the model's release...

And people need to get over the Sisters stuff....it should be obvious GW got off the pot a long time ago on that.
