Someone on twitter described the shield as looking like a tampon, and now I can't see anything else.

Yeah, these are very cool.

Glad I waited before starting my Sisters.

Have a feeling they will be quite a different (in a good way) army by the time the new Codex comes out.

A polearm, a shield and a built-in pistol sound like a really weird weapon combo but hey, the models look nice enough that I'll try not to overthink it too much. :P

They say in the article that the normal Battlesister kit will make them, does that mean an upgrade sprue?

 

Oh it says a Celestian Squad, what is that?

That's absolutely awesome! Both the concept (even though I agree with Takatus that it's a rather weird combo), and the design work really well - btw that collar is one of the rumour engines

Is this the section you're speaking about?

"Speaking of which, this awesome new unit is on its way soon, so if you want to make sure you already have an Adepta Sororitas collection to add them to, grab yourself a Battle Sisters Squad or two today.*"

If so, I think it's more to do with trying to sell SoB armies, but I may have missed the quote you're speaking about?

Check the * thats at the bottom.

 

* Remember, of course, that you can build standard Celestian Squads with this kit, too, so it will work well even if you’re looking to build a more elite Adepta Sororitas army.

I think that's just saying that the regular Battle Sisters kit can also build a squad of Celestians even if it's not advertised as such, since Celestians, by default, have the same equipment as regular Sisters. It's kinda like saying that you can build a squad of Chosen from the Chaos Marine kit. Bit of a weird addition to the article though.

Good thing they have that dogmata model for those cases ;)

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.

The model is great, the paintjob could be better composed as always.

I always felt Celestials should of been something like this to distinguish them from normal Sisters squads. I wonder if the old Celestials are gonna get as much use.

On a side note it looks like the Elite slot is he is getting even more crowded. I kinda hope they move Zephyrm to Fast Attacks since that slot is a bit light

Hopefully Celestians become a bit more unique with the new book. I always thought it was a missed opportunity to not differentiate them more from the other infantry units.
