Simple, but effective. I love the Abrams-esque turret.

Definitely prefer this Not-Predator to the Primaris tank designs.

A nice little autocannon variant - presumably some more?

Should we expect a Lascannon + Twin-plasmagun one?

Nice predator update with a proper turret, if the sponsons are optional my SoB project might be back on :D

This one just looks a bit weird to me. As if they put on a too big turret on a too small chassis.

Can't say I blame them - the Sisters got a special mention in the investor statement for last year.

Love it, and I'm both presently surprised and also slightly annoyed it wasn't the repressor.

Very happy at least that the sisters will be continuing to use the rhino chassis, its such an iconic part of 40k and still looks infinitely better than any of the vehicles they've done for primaris. Hopefully the land raider can maybe find a home there too at some point.

Theres a point when marketing tactics just become transparent. If we know there's this selection of stuff about to drop in the next 6 months, but they drip feed it while showing snippets on rumour engine to let us know there's more, it takes away from the hype instead of sustaining it.

The range is two aesthetics, one which is dominated by body horror maniacs bent on redemption or punishment. The other is baroque and gothic. This fits that aesthetic perfectly. It even has bits that look directly pulled from the Immolator.

Now that’s a tank. Stoked to see sisters getting some armor.

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.

Knowing what they could have done to the Space Marine Rhino and Predator (and no doubt Whirlwind and Vindicator) in lieu of creating an all new aesthetic for 30 years of established material just makes me even more sad that Primaris exist. 

 

At least the sisters can enjoy them and I can always buy one for my old marines and marineify it, but nevertheless it chafes to know that my space marines will never receive a single new update after all these years and all these thousands of pounds.

Shame.

So I was right on my first drawn in pic.

A predator but featuring a battle cannon? Or twin autocannon instead of a single? 3 heavy bolters instead of 2?

Yea this thing is what predators wish they were, it's sooo much better.

I'll take 3.

With regards to the aesthetic - the main gun seems off to me. A more righteous looking Baal predator would fit better with all its burny goodness, or a giant massive heavy bolter style gun - this just seems too, I dunno...round?

Definitely prefer the twin autocannon turret but overall I like it! The hull Heavy Bolter seems a bit overkill for the size of the model, but only a bit. Kinda gives me WW2 US tank "PUT MORE MACHINE GUNS ON" vibes.

Eh, doesn't quite feel like a sisters vehicle to me, unless that main gun fires melta bombs then this doesn't have a whiff of holy trinity to it.

Makes me feel that they want Sisters to replace old marines instead of getting new things...

Looks much nicer from the front and top than from the side. Like it a lot, looks more intimidating than the predator.

You're really good at talking down to people while being desperately wrong lemondish. What was it the last time, marine power units deserving of nerfs?

The sororitas range's aesthetic is religion if it was militarized; the basic troopers are monks, their elites are angels, their heavy vehicles are shrines, one of their special characters is a living saint. The body horror part is to refer back to flagellation and concepts of "salvation" for sinners. It's all about the religion.

This tank is too utilitarian for something that's supposed to be a holy instrument. It's arguably the least ornamented of all their tanks; it has the cornices and braziers, but the rhino has large ministorum and sororitas icons dominating the model. The immolator blows it out of the water; the exorcist puts it to shame.
