So, in advance of Adepticon, Games Workshop dropped this shameless little tease…
(A minute of hyperventilation later) Okay, so some quick takeaways from this:
- Apparently, every single Sister of Battle player (or person who just wants to see them in plastic) relentlessly trolling GW on their Facebook page and on their customer survey worked.
- They will be released sometime next year.
- Up until that point, they will be posting updates and teaser images. To quote the GW site directly:
We know many of you have been waiting patiently (and impatiently…) for a long time for the Adepta Sororitas, and that for many of you this is more than ‘just’ a new army. So, we’re going to do something we’ve never done before – right up until the release, we’ll be bringing you updates on the Sisters of Battle, sharing images and snippets of info and a whole ton of behind the scenes goodness.
Emperor willing, the Battle Sisters of the Adepta Sororitas will be ready to take the fight to the renegade, the heretic and the unbeliever in 2019.
Also, confirmed by Bell of Lost Souls:
8:46 – Chapter Approved 2018 will contain beta rules for plastic Sisters of Battle.
This means updates to the rules well in advance of new models. So, overall, between a new Drukhari Codex around the corner and Sisters rules updates, both my main armies are going to get hefty updates.
It’s going to be a long year.
