I need more Immolators and Retributors. If the price is right I'll get several of these. If there aren't savings I'll also save myself the trouble of finding people to split with and get regular boxes instead.

Your move GW price department, your move... (Either way I'm giving you money so I can't win. I need help).

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.

If you’re a Warhammer 40,000 fan, you’ll see a new codex or expansion every month in January, February, and March starting with the Death Guard – Nurgle, bless ’em, they have waited a long time…

Hedonites in February do not replace any 40k book releases in the same month, thankfully. :)

I still highly doubt we'll see Sisters so soon. Space Marines have always been and, unfortunately, always will be an exception to the rule.

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.

I see what you did there, brother. It's heretical, alas I chuckled so a few hours of meditation about how the Xenos are to be purged should be enough punishment for that lapse.

I don't get why she is so jacked now. Her whole thing was being fast, fluid movement with power via technique. I mean the style is great for jojo fans or dudes with a more shall we say select taste for feminine beauty. Still regardless this is miles ahead of the monty python sisters of battle helmetless heads. Again, I am betting the harsh paint job is just exacerbating the detail incorrectly.

Your idea that she can't be both jacked and fast tells me you have never seen one second of women's MMA.

Not the most exciting reveals, but we have new year's coming still.

Kind of subjective.  The underwear wasn't necessary, but I prefer the overall pose and details on the old one. I also feel like the pose and expression better suit her fluff of being cold and confident. It was also a lot more of a simple sculpt; none of this giant hair or smoke or energy you see a lot of these days.

 

But hey, some people like that thing along with flipping terminators.

Shes pretty jacked in the old model too. She's got a pack and obliques and you can see the muscle definition on arms too. Like you mention, the paintjob is a little too harsh on the skin tone and is causing a problem

What made her exceptional was her smaller frame + size being able to still kill jacked opponents like orks, SM, CSM, carnifexes etc. Now she is just another meathead bashing in the other meatheads. Closing the physical size gap with her being so jacked has diminished her presance and taken away from her overal character.

Edit- she was the feather weight/ welter weight that beats the super heavy weights, now she is just another heavyweight doing that, using fighting standards IRL.

Most likely a limited release, with the individual clampacks for the two new characters coming 6 months later. Like Ragnar + Ghaz, Drazhar + Jain Zar, ...

The previous Lillith model was a bit better. It wasn't particularly in need of a replacement compared to some characters.

Well, I recently jumped back in with a Sisters army, and was planning to do DE next, so this works out pretty well! For those more familiar with these sets, I assume the Lelith and Palatine models will eventually have a general release as well further down the line, right?

 

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.

Sisters need more generic HQ choices a lot more than they need another special character. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

Going off the base, we wont be getting updated guardians any time soon. How old are they? Probably older than some people posting here.

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.

 

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.

 

Yeah, the 'Eavy Metal style doesn't work with female faces well since those require softer shading and better transitions. Which is a damn shame they still haven't fixed that since they sculpts continue to be solid.

 

Well, I'll have to set some money aside since it's a solid looking box that looks like a decent way to start both armies.


 My company inform me that their new primaris brother just don't fit in the safety harnesses. And the Chaplain won't let us ride unless we buckle up.

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. 

Forgebane? Blood of the Phoenix? Either of those ring a bell? :lol:

 

Also regarding Lelith's muscles: She's still slim compared to all the other models/races. It's just that she has muscle definition where it makes sense. Especially those thighs

Its a buy for me. Perfect combo of units to expand my Sororitas force and I do want Lelith for my DE as well. The other DE units aren't so great, seeing as it feels like they feature in every box DE are in.

Poorly optimised? Not since the weapon buffs, mate. Retributors are fantastic.

I hope Lilith still comes with the alternative weapon option, depending on how the knife in her left hand is angled that could be swapped for the spear

Not necessarily. The Thunderwolves plastic kit came with Thousand Sons heads for basing and they wound up getting updated within 2 years.

Poorly optimised because no one ever takes 2 multimeltas, a heavy bolter, and a heavy flamer in one squad, so you will have to either by a second box or just have an odd squad...retributors are great, this set up of retributors-suboptimal...

At no point will a squad with 2 multi-meltas, a heavy bolter and a heavy flamer be a good idea.

It is merely the a build option of a kit single that is intended to be bought in pairs to work.
