Witch Hunters/Sisters of Battle have been great fun to play on Dawn of War, but when I hear about the 40K miniatures, it seems that theres barely any plastic models available and the codex is fairly out of date.
How easy is it to building a typical 500-1000 point list cost wise and are the Sisters due for an update soon, whether its the codex or the models themselves (more plastics please!)
There is almost no plastic in WH except for vehicles.
Sisters are more detailed than Marines.
Painting metal is absolutely not a problem for me.
I've turned the metal surface to a distinct advantage.
You can always save money by buying used through e-bay,
and there's no paint stripper that hurts metal.
The one on the right took less time than the one on the left.
Left = Acrylic. Right = Thinned Testors Enamel.
Oil-base paint simply bonds better to metal.
Its pigment is denser, the colors are a little better, and it dries much harder.
It is harder to clean up, but not by much when you understand how it works.
I don't use Testors for everything.
Primarily power armor, metal accessories, and sometimes flesh.
After it dries, acrylic can be painted over it, which I prefer for cloth.
Sisters might never see a new codex, and they really don't need one.
The 5th ed rules are going to make the army more diverse and interesting.

Sisters Repentia: Wow what beautiful models! Wow what terrible rules! -stjohn70
I'm personally hoping that a new Inquisition book is as far off as possible. This is based just on the current trend towards simpler armies based more on core rules. The sisters army is all about an extremely unique and fairly complicated set of special rules that I'd think the current design studio would almost completely abolish and reduce to a small set of more or less static special rules.
