Admittedly not what I was expecting to land.

 

Presumably the Ecclesiarchy stuff teased in the Advent Calendar will be getting shown off on New Years Day and a box set usually means a new codex is coming.

That new Lilith model is pretty underwhelming for me, and the face is...well, not good. It just doesn't strike me as a legendary killer unlike the old model.

Is that twice in a row Drukhari players have been hit with heres a new character but you have to buy a box? At least this one wont anywhere cost near as much. And sisters half should be easy enough to offload or go splittsville on

You mean to say they’re releasing a box without Primaris anywhere near it???

On a brighter note I may get that cos it looks great.

Not particularly keen on the Lilith model but will reserve final judgement until I have her in hand.

The sisters character isn’t good enough to make me want the box. Bit of a swing and a miss for me.

It's most likely the paint job. 'Eavy Metal has some very unfortunate faces, but in-hand the model usually looks good - see also most of the LotR line.

Hopefully that's the case. I think the model is just lacking something however. I'll probably grab a set as I've got a sisters army so I'll have a chance for it to grow on me

Arrrrggghhhh there goes my hope of a Lucius the Eternal vs Lelith box. sad.png

 

Not seriously complaining though, pleased to see an exceedingly rare non Imperial SPACE MARINES vs non Imperial SPACE MARINES box. Hope it's priced well & sells well to convince GW to do more like it.

Not at all what I was expecting! Like, at all... The box set itself, or the severely underwhelming lilith.

All personal preferences of course. But I prefer the old one. Too much hair.

Just an annoying situation, because the new one is obviously better proportioned, and it does look good. And the hair pose is good too. But the mass of hair is silly.

100% what the rumour said it would’ve been smile.png

 

Source: http://www.bolterand...v-21/?p=5633611

I saw a random rumour online, screenshotted from a fb group.
New (small) box incoming, Dark Eldar vs Sisters.
Lelith Hesperax (new model), 10 Wyches, 5 Scourges vs new Sisters HQ (Palatine something, the lieutenant one). 5 Retributors, 1 Immolator. 
No idea whether it's reliable or not, but it would certainly fit the current approach of launching new models in box sets.
EDIT: and a Venom, forgot about it

Spoiler

The running forward palentine paired with the static retributors is a interesting model choice. I also don't need more retributors, so I'll have to decide if I want to split it with someone.

It’s a minor complaint, but the corpse at Lelith‘a feet makes me sad that we’re likely stuck with those dumb-looking shoulder vents on Eldar Guardians forever. :(

Question for someone with a better memory than I. These vs boxes, have they historically been associated with a campaign / expansion book or codex releases for the factions?

For example, blood of the Phoenix accompanied the psychic awakening release for both included factions, but what I’m more curious about (seeing as the release order is pretty much confirmed as January death guard, feb dark angels and March dark eldar) is does this mean a sisters codex is the next release after the box comes out ?

So its a named character vs a unnamed generic Lt level HQ and a poorly optimised heavy slot.

Well the non-Imperial races were due a lore win at some point I suppose.

jimbo1701: No, not necessarily. Ghaz got rules in the box he was in but there was no Codex: Orks release afterwards.

And, given how recently the Sisters' 'dex has been released, I doubt they'll get a new book any time soon.

Sure, I see what you mean about ghaz, but the box was released as part of the psychic awakening series when no new codexes were being done prior to the 9th release. (Sisters being an exception). I’m more thinking back to pre-psychic awakening, things like shadowspear, the Admech set and the others that came before that. Really to deduce f we should expect a sisters codex around Easter time.

The new Lelith’s not bad but isn’t a classic in the same fashion as the old one. The detail’s great but there’s more unnecessary exertion in the face and the pose isn’t as perfect.

We know the Dark Eldar book is schedule for early 2021 - probably March now since Death Guard were pushed back to January and Hedonites are February. 

 

The Advent Calendar Rumour Engines had a bunch of Ecclesiarchy/Inquisition stuff and with nothing like Psychic Awakening promised there's a good chance a Sisters codex might land with them (although there could be the War Zone XYZ book). One need only look at Space Marines getting a new 'dex in less than a year - even if Marines are arguably a special case by virtue of their popular - to see GW don't mind pushing replacements out quickly.

i appreciate her covering up, but can't help butt wonder if lilith is still wearing her battle thong under her new pants.

edit: i can't believe people are describing lilith's old model as 'classic' instead of juvenile and cringe.
