    Battle Sisters Banner Bearer

    Wasn't sure where to post this.
    First, as new as I still am to this amazing hobby, I am just now getting the hang of G.W.'s predilection for discontinuing products without warning (I just started getting into BFG, so you know what I mean!)
    I have used Brazen Brass paint on my friends Chaos army as well as the pipes on my first Exorcist, intending, of course, to paint the second to match. . .that is after buying a new bottle of paint. Imagine my horror when I found that G.W. discontinued it? So, I am trying Vallejo Brassy Brass.
    As well, my hobby shop says that they can no longer get G.W.'s barbed wire. Yes I know, it could be made, but dammit, I have so much in the way of conversions going on now that I'm nuts from it.
    LAST THING: I guess that they no longer make the Battle Sisters Banner Bearer that I see in photos in the Witch Hunters Codex? I don't see one listed on any of the online stores, either!
    DOES ANYBODY HAVE ONE THAT THEY WOULD BE INTERESTED IN SELLING?
    PLEASE? I'll be your best friend! I'll name my next kid after you8X

    True, but the Imagifers carry the Simulacrum Imperialis which allows the inclusion of a third die in Tests of Faith (the 'roller' choosing the best two.) Yeah, that's a goodie, no doubt.
    But. . .
    The Sacred Banner makes the unit Fearless & may ignore Morale & pinning tests.
    Plus, there's nothing like the sign of your flag leading the charge, whether it was the Roman Eagle standard or the Star Spangled Banner yet waving. Think of how, when the flag was shot off the pole at Fort Sumter, a soldier shinnied up and replaced it.
    Gotta love it!
    P.S. Thanks so much for the tip on the razorwire. . .you saved the day and get a rep!

    Hang on. . .A week or so ago one of the members of the Warhammer group that I belong to and I went to the hobby shop for some 'supplies', including Brazen Brass. They were out (wouldn't you know it?) I never thought to ask about it, we just left. Well, we went back again, day before yesterday, and on finding them still out, my friend asked 'what's what?'The clerk--a guy who's worked there for sometime now swore that G.W. was phasing it out.
    After posting the situation here, i came online this a.m. and frozencore's post provided a link to the online store where the 'blessed brass' is apparently still for sale.
    I have no idea what to make of this. All I can say is: 'Where's a red shirt with aloose tongue when you need 'em?'

    That mini isn't too hard to find. Just set up a eBay notification on 'sister 40k' and you'll find her. Make sure you're including worldwide hits to get sellers in the UK

    My understanding is that the Battle Sisters Banner Bearer is only a Sister holding a large pole, therefore its up to the player do make their own flag/banner/whatever for it.

    Being as that's what I have, and I almost never play more than 1850 points, I'd be more than willing to trade it for another model, or sell it.

    Are you saying that yours is a conversion or the original out of the blister pack? If it's the original, I'd love to buy it.
    And btw, I thought you checked out? Welcome. . .missed you!

    Nope, this is straight from the blister.

    Yeah, I did check out awhile, but I'm back, and I've learned quite a few things about my Sisters that I'd really like to start sharing.
