Alright /tg/, the Sisters of Battle are getting updated as we all know, but there is a bit more than what's in the White Dwarf:

>New Codex is apparently Adepta Sororitas, and GW has already changed their website to match.

>They are getting a release on the 19th according to the GW Newsletter: "Codex: Adepta Sororitas
Sentinetls of Terra isn't the only new Digital title on its way later this month. From the 19th October, Codex: Adepta Sororitas will be released as the first digital exclusive codex. As a thank you for signing up to our newsletter, you lucky people get to be the first int he world to see the stunning new cover of the codex."

>When asked about the codex at Games Day, Robin Cruddace was quoted to say that in addition to Warlord traits, the dev team looked at making faith points scale and did "some minor point tweaks" so this looks like it might be a modified WD Dex, not a full new dex.

>Games Workshop Digital Editions' Facebook page claims if they get 100 likes they'll release more info on the codex.

Games Workshop Digital Editions Facebook posted this on what's in the book: ""It's certainly based on the White Dwarf Sisters of Battle Codex, but with new additions to bring it in line with the new books. Things like Warlords table, new Ecclesiarchy Relics and an Altar of War.
There's also new artwork and an expanded background section."

>Wanting SoB to be competitive
Crappy priorities here. At least for me, being able to buy a squad without selling a kidney ranks higher. But that may be because I didn't jump on that boat in time, due to hating metal.

That and actual faith rules (which might tie up with competitiveness).

Then you are wrong. The codex is a polished version of the precedent, so it's a polished turd instead of a steaming one. CSM is an army with unused potential at every step. Awesome minis? Dark Vengeance only, buy more spiky marines. Fluffy FOC? Lol no. Fluffy rules? Enjoy your traitors handing out fair duels. Basic background? Fuck no, Legions are FW and Renegades are FW too, C:CSM is about the others CSM (whatever they may be).

C:CSM is just disappointing, but you're supposed to enjoy it because Heldrakes and blenderlord.

Anyway, fuck CSM. I just hope sistas aren't going their way. "Hey, you don't even have Faith anymore and you are part of the IG now. Enjoy your Heavendrake."

>> No.27564874

The only retcon was adding in confirmation of Praxedes dying.

Oh and Celestine may or may have not been nuked yet. That's not really clear.

I have the previous editions, it was not a straight copy paste. And if we want to start counting "rewrites" as "copy/paste", the same claim could then be pointed at nearly -everything- Ward (and the other Devs) writes, because *gasp* it's all built off of old fluff.

Really, if GW wants to make Sisters playable again, they have to START with unfucking our dedicated transports. Adjusting the points on our remaining options isn't going to make them better, unless you're adjusting the FIRING points.

She is somewhat undercosted, but only because 40k special characters are all overpriced.

But you're not seeing the big picture. She is an ASSAULT focused SC with toughness 3 (meaning she is IDd by just about anything that ignores 2+ saves) so her getting back up is required just to make her fieldable. Her weapon is AP 3, and wounds on a 4+ so she isn't a true CC powerhouse. And she is jump infantry, meaning she HAS to move across the table.

She should stay right at 115 points, compare her to a SM captain w/ artificer and LC at 135 points and they are about equal, except she gets a template and he gets T4 St4 re-roll to wound weapon.

She is unique to sisters and should be cheaper due to her focused role.

>> No.27565550

The top left two look nice enough, aside from the pink hair. And aside from the weird jawline on the second from the right, that one's okay. The top far right looks like she could be cute under that bigass respirator. Bottom right is nice enough, then there's helmet, luchamask, and an old black pirate lady.

>> No.27565634

A "full" squad can be 10 to 20 models. If you split your sisters into squads of 10 at the start of the game, they're still full strength. Neither of our unique vehicles can carry even THAT, and the only one that has firing points and can move and shoot is Forgeworld only. And it only has two firing points now.

Which means we have three options for dedicated transports, and only one could stand up in a competitive environment. And guess what? It's a Space Marine vehicle.

They can get some more variety in the codex, they need to add in Zealots (they had rules for them before) and Arbites, which would basically be Storm Troopers with Shotguns. There we go, 3 troop options. Add in the rules for Inquisitors, adjust some points and scale Faith Points.

Pair it with a plastic Sister Squad (3 kits in one: Sisters, Celestine and Dominion) Another that is Command, Retribution and Seraphim. Plastic Kit for Stormtrooper/Arbites.

To be honest, as a SoB player, I find that faith tends not to work much period.
