He also told me they've looked at the scaling issue for faith points and that there's been 'minor' point tweaks. Release date is for next month (October). Interestingly he said it'll probably be treat like a supplement in that if it sells well as a digital it's probably get a physical release. Spoke to someone from the digital editions stand and they confirmed it'll be for Android aswell as Ipad.

I'm just hoping for a points adjustment. The 6+ invul does NOT make them worth 1 point less than a chaos marine. They need to be 10 points (gw is probably going to adjust veterans+carapace armor down in points when Guard get a new codex anyways). They also need to have squad sizes of either 5-10, or 5-20. Dropping the minimum lets them field troop choices under 100 points a squad like EVERY OTHER ARMY in the game. It is also important for ballance and money reasons.

Ballance: They have NO long range shooty, and they DEFINATELY don't have enough short range shooty to table the enemy in 1 or 2 turns. After said 1 or 2 volleys of fire, they can count on being in close combat, and having a minimum squad size of 5 lets them take more veteran sister superiors, which makes sisters decent enough in close combat to win if they soften the enemy up enough with their shooty. They need that extra attack and the wargear options. (space marines already do this to make their predominantly shooty army decent in close combat)

2. It would let players field an immolator for EVERY squad, which would equal more money for gw as sisters players start buying up immolator kits. Additionally, the easier it is to START an army, the more likely that player is going to spend more money on additional units.

>> No.27488228

>>27488143
True, but they don't really lend themselves to the strategy (that being said, an army of Sisters on horses bearing awesome heraldic flags while some derpy looking Guardsmen flee from the battle is neat).

But she never stops bring devoted to the Emperor. She just goes with the Eldar because he's the only one offering her help when she's on the run with powers that she doesn't understand.

I just remembered some stuff I ran across recently about the number of Sisters:

>>It's been a long running tradition that there aren't that many Battle Sisters in the fluff (about 100K total Sisters...maybe.) So a friend and I sat down and decided to crunch some numbers (for the purposes of the exercise we lowballed most of these numbers to try and feel out a low number that we could expect) with the goal to work out how many Sororitas (and then how many Battle Sisters) there should be in the Imperium as we agreed that due to the size and scale of the Imperium, the Ecclesiarchy and the scope of the duties of the Sisters their numbers just weren't high enough at 100,000.

>>To keep the numbers reasonably low we worked off the following rules:

>>1% of the entire Imperium meets the very basic criteria to be considered for becoming a Sororitas.
>>1% of those complete their "basic" training successfully
>>1% of those are on active status at any time (the other 99% have been deactivated for any number of reasons). This last one was to really just push the number a lot lower based on the "gak happens" quotient.
>>50% of the final total is Militant Orders, the rest is divided into the various Non-Militant Orders (which makes each of those smaller than the combined Militant Orders).

(cont)

>> No.27488520

>>27488504
>>So running some basic numbers we figured that from the Hive Worlds (all 32,380 of them) had a rough average of 50,000,000,000 (we went with 50 Billion a Hive, which is about the middle of the range (10-100,000,000,000), and 10 Hive a planet, which is a bit lower than half as the range is 5-20) 16,190,000,000,000,000 people on the hives.

>>To keep the math easy we went with an average of 5 Billion people on average on every other planet in the Imperium (working from 1,000,000 that means 967,620 worlds) which is lower than our current population on Earth. That gave us another 4,838,100,000,000,000 more people.

>>This gave us a total of 21,028,100,000,000,000 people in the Imperium on a lowball math run.

>>Of these 210,281,000,000,000 meet the very basic criteria.
>>Of those 2,102,810,000,000 complete the basic training.
>>Of those 21,028,100,000 are on any kind of active duty.
>>Of those 10,514,050,000 are Battle Sisters.

>>So in short we think that about 10.5 Billion Battle Sisters makes much more sense in the fluff, or the Sisters have an attrition rate that makes even the Imperial Guard look conservative. Either way I wanted to share just to see what people thought.

Also so much for keeping it clean on that other post. Should have realized it'd do that with those numbers.

A Loyal Sister of battle whos body as by all intents be slain, but her divine spark still clings to the body, urging it on to greatness for the Imperium.

Well, the SoB are kinda weird right now anyway, and barring any overhauls, will stay that way.

Why do they have access to rhinos, but not any of the variants, like the predator or vindicator? Why wouldn't they have access to other marine tanks, like the land raider and land speeder and dreadnoughts and whatever?

They have bolters and power armor, but no version of heavy armor (terminators, centurions whatever). What about heavy weapons? Who took away all the rocket launchers and lascannons and shit?

They live on earth next to mars, it would make sense they get elite marine-level shit to play with.

But they're elite humans, not supermen. So they started to get some IG stuff too in the witch hunters codex, access to platoons and assassins and chimeras and sentinels and shit. Sort of makes sense, if they're not space marines they have more common human army stuff, and exotic humans, cyborgs and shit. The sentinel and penitent engine very vaguely could be descended from the same design.

But now, they're an imperial army borrowing 'iconic' things from other imperial armies. They need their own gimmick, and I can't see that happening. The space marines and IG and mechanicus essentially prevent the SoB from having a distinctive 'imperial tech but not borrowed from anyone' vibe.

That's poor show. Imperial Guard don't have to mooch off the Marines, they use Chimeras instead of Rhinos, Russes instead of Predators.

The hair was also cited as a problem. And it's a valid issue, they need to get the arms posable and the hair looming good for plastics.

And the problems are sorted, just recently, though. And it's not a simple thing to redo an entire army in plastic. They can't just do that on a whim, anon. It'll take time to make every unit a model, then they'll need to wait for the best time financially to relaunch them all. Until then, might as well sell their rules, since now GW knows that the Sisters have a future.

>latest GW plastic releases are ridiculously expensive and monopose

They're fucking monopose because it's FANTASY, which if you didn't know makes a bit of a fuss about making sure your models are lined all nice and tidy.

40k figures don't have to work about standing right on top of each other so GW has more room to work with in that regard. Plus just because they're monopose doesn't mean they all have to look the same, the recent WD clearly shows how for example you can at the very least make the DE crossbowers look like they're either aiming or reloading their weapons.

As for being more expensive, the only kit being seem to be throwing a tantrum over is the WE/SoS (Which by the way are actually $10 dollars cheaper for ten now than when they were finecast) because no one seems to get that it costs money to make things. Now do you get money by making things? By selling a product. GW knows that the DE spear/sword/crossbow kit will sell hand over fist which is why it's only $35, meanwhile the WE/SoS kit has to compete with the aforementioned DE kit, Corsairs (A popular unit), Dark Riders (Getting a new kit next month), and Harpies in the Coreslot and a bunch of other things in either the Rare and Special slots. To me this suggest that GW priced the WE/SoS kit the way they did because they figured the kit will not sell enough to justify a lower price, got to make back the money put into those plastic moulds somehow.

Oh, I know the holy trinity thing, I was speaking from a purely gameplay point of view.

Especially with the allies table, what exactly is the purpose of removing (let's say roughly) half the existing weapons options the imperium has? Is it just to sell more allied marines and guard to do what the SoB have removed 'for flavor'?

The new option is what I'm talking about too. And with this in mind:

>>27489483

If the IG doesn't depend on Space Marine tanks, then why do the sisters? I assume all the robots are being saved for the maybe someday mechanicus. What's left for the sisters barring a ton of new and exclusive STC vehicles? ('exclusive' - look how well that turned out for the immolator)

The robed Marines aren't like the SoB sleeves. You couldn't make those look weird by loving the arm around. SoB robes, on the other hand, wouldn't be posable, they'd look weird if you loved the arm.

I'm interested to see how they've dealt with it.

And the problems weren't mysterious, the GW devs have been very open about it every time they've been asked. Goodwin said it in 2011, Kelly said it this year. Really, guys, it was modelling issues. There is no evil conspiracy at work.

As for me, I just want to know why, as mentioned previously, the SoB get rhinos, immolators(/razorbacks) and exorcists (all clearly rhino-based) but not other things like the predators or vindicators. I don't even want those tanks, I'm just saying it's weird that they have the marine's main tank famous for being tweaked to fit any role, and they don't bother tweaking it, not really. And then they're sitting there going "wow, planes suck, I wish we had missile launchers / autocannons / whatever, oh well, those don't exist!"

What I'm hoping is for a more streamlined concept, the way Eldar and DEldar have similarities but their technologies have gone down different paths. But what I'm sure we'll get is just more stuff borrowed from the marines, but none of the particularly good stuff, just the basics.

My money's on sleeveless or monopose models, personally, and when (if) that happens, I'll still wonder exactly what the problem was.

>>27489599
>>27489527
If they don't just get rid of the sleeves marine style, they could have gone with the split sleeve thing and had the arms poking out of fairly monopose torsos with molded sleeves, like the heavy weapons blisters the SoB currently have.

While they're very eager to tell you "we would but it's impossible to make those models", I'd be less suspicious if they had pictures or something showing the problems, progress, or solutions they've come up with.

As for the Sisters, they have unique tanks because they have a monopoly on the designs. The Ecclesiarchy got an exclusivity deal on the Immolator, and the Exorcist was made for the SoB during Good Guy Goge's time. The other factions might have similar situations with their tanks.

"Wait... what? I thought you battle sisters weren't aloud to? Well... I don't see my commissar around..."

I do remember some piece saying that sisters are chaste, but I've misplaced it. Have to keep looking. And seeing they're into self-denial and all that shit, it seems no snu-snu is part of the deal.

No shit. I get so tired of her being paraded around as if that's the only proof needed that all Sisters are apparently naughty nuns who just want someone to spank them.

I like the lack of a vow, because if taken with the fluff it's cooler than if they just had it shoved in their lap.

>>27492929
1. I doubt paddlings are used as punishment. Sisters take the Vow of Repentance to make up for their serious transgressions, not under cohesion but voluntarily. One Order has the issue of pretty much every Sister seeing themselves as horrible sinners so they'll take the Vow even if they didn't fuck up that bad!
2. The point is the intent. If someone tells you not to fuck then you can rely on the fact you were told to get you through any "rough spots". But if you make the choice of your own free will everytime it takes a hell of a lot more willpower to do so. The blame is still firmly on the Sister in either case, but it's a deeper betrayal of what she stands for when she makes the choice to betray her own faith, not some rule that was forced upon her like a yoke.

Well technically the Blood Angels get flamethrowing razorbacks too.

My point, which I suppose wasn't clear, is that sisters rely on the technology of other armies. Even when they get their own thing, the admech are able to take it, (secretly steal it), improve it, and then give it to someone else. Because those improvements happened in secret (I suppose also in heresy) the originators of the info, the sisters, don't benefit.

The truth behind the Baal Predator and BA vehicles are that the Predator is merely a normal Predator but with a shitty BA garage chop shop turret and sponson swap.

I'm imagining a Fortress Shrine with a super shield of faith that just has the rule 'Shield of Faith Saves may be taken against destroyer hits within X of the Shrine'

Though Destroyer hits as a whole are rather poorly thought out.

How about a giant moving building that you can garrison Sisters into who can attack without being attackable?
You literally just get it closer to enemies and shoot at them. You can dump off troops whenever you want, you can literally just drop Exorcists like eggs.

I use a Stormlord for Apoc. It was the most fitting thing I could find.

Sorry guys if this has been answered, but I didn't want to read the entire thread for it.

When are we supposed to get this digital codex?

How about a Titan that looks like Pic related.

I'm also in favor of the Cathedral Tank.

They had to have somebody maintaining their vahicles and weapons.

I'm painting my Sisters again because of this release. The least GW could do is give me the book so I can be excited and plan what I need to add to my army.
