This is from the AdeptiCon post on GW website:
"Last time we ran the Big Community Survey, loads of you asked for plastic Sisters of Battle – so this year, we’re giving you some! A selection of lucky fans who participate in this year’s Big Community Survey will win some fabulous prizes. 10 entrants will receive a squad of Battle Sisters, while one lucky winner will be receiving a whole Adepta Sororitas army – yes, the new ones! So, if having the chance to fundamentally shape the future of Warhammer forever isn’t enough, you might even get some free stuff while you’re at it."

so it's time to start assembling the Sisters of Battle rumors in one thread.

The "post" BBCode only works for internal linking, so I tidied the links up.

Their heads were revealed some time ago. I'm getting a grim dark Dora the Explorer vibe of the bottom right hand side one. Grimdora.

IIRC there were also some more scarred/veteran heads shown? That particular batch are ok but I like the look from the Karl Kopinski artwork where in some pieces the sisters look serene and almost angelic and in others covered in scars and generally badass. I'm thinking there will have to be a fair few options either way as sisters are one of the few factions that tend to always be helmetless.

I like the one wearing the helmet but with the visor up.

Yes these look pleasing. Think Ill be moving on to Sisters when they drop, they have been calling to me these past few months...

Unbearable, isn't it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends. There is a secret song at the centre of the world, and its sound is like razors through flesh.

Your opinion is important, and someone posting here probably does care what you think. You should go tell them. Remember that it really hurts to come up with an idea you care about and have no one else care. Go care about something and tell them what you think. Now. Think of what it would have meant to you when you were young.

Someone on Dakka got shown a bunch of pictures of either models or screen shots but they got taken down. I don't know if this is a april fools joke cause it's still the 31st over here.

 

* GW understands this is new territory, Witch Hunters was a long time ago and Codex SoB even longer, some store managers weren't even born then. So there's no recent sales history to guide orders and they want to stress this will be a huge launch, and retailers should order expecting Primaris level numbers.

* The initial wave will include a plastic Immolator, a plastic/resin Exorcist, plastic Frateris Militia (with both a female and male sets), Sister Cestine and two bodyguards, a painting guide, a BL omnibus of SoB novels and a codex.

* There will also be SoB-branded Rhinos, Predators and Demolishers as well as a special DoB drop pod set to make the Ordo Hereticus strikeforce detachment 

* SoB decal sheets will be available

* Sorry decals are mail order only.

* Also look for a Kill Team SoB box with St Celestine and a ruined temple.

* The Militia will be really grimdark, covered in robes, candles and weapons that look like homemade parodies of weapons carried by the Emperor's servants.

* New special character St O'Lander (sp?), keeps with the theme of death and rebirth but she's more of a ghost to Cestine's angel look. White robes and hood, great flying effect. 

* She'll be able to summon some sort of spirits or ghosts who suck psychic energy. Really good flying effect but also easy build, comes in turquoise plastic.

* Another saint (!!) Arabelle (sp?) some sort of spirit of life,angel wings but nature looking with a fleurs de lis spear and halo mounted a giant xenos beast.

* There was some trouble on the line here when someone asked about the plastic sisters kit, kind of vague answers, nothing specific, couldn't get a price point or how many kits. Lots of cross talk, all I caught was something about sleeves and veils.

* New sisters unit, heavier armor, shields, CC weapons, reportedly taller than most Sisters, some kind of primaris maybe? not sure. Heard the word Eternals used for them.


* There will be ton of Sisters-appropriate terrain including a line of fortifications that captures the sisters' obsession with self-sacrifice where the bodies of the slain are literally part of the walls.


* The classic metal line will get one last splash launch with a 2 weeks made to order. There was some commotion on the line when someone asked if retailers can carry the MTO stuff lots of back and forth, stories not happy if they can't get a cut of this, GW rep said they'd consider it.

* A lot of excitement about a Sisters flier, some sort of ground support plane like an A10.


* Never mind, it's Forge World only.

* Hard at work finalizing the codex, based on playtesting and feedback the acts of faith are being rewritten "from the ground up". Someone asked about affecting ship dates. GW got a big laugh when they said "have faith", kind of had to be there.

So lots of excitement and enthusiasm from Nottingham, but some skepticism from the retail end. Strange they didn't have a shot of the Sisters kit to show.

Yeah that isn't very subtle or convincing. I was pressing X to Doubt really hard even before I saw those links. xd Almost every single line has something silly.


Pieces of paper for impassable terrain? My main problem with all of this is it really takes away from the game. A giant sheet of white paper on the table sort of breaks the theme of tiny fake armies running around tiny fake locales.

Real men play Adepta Sororitas!

Also the nod to the Avenger strike fighter. Rumour rating 5/10 flamers :lol:

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)
