I have noticed that over the last couple of weeks there has been little activity in this here corner of LO. Perhaps you are all too concerned as to what IG will be getting in the next couple of months.
As a fresh change of pace and a chance to get away from the what if threads I say we talk about what we have now and seeing that we will not get anything new for at least a years time we should work with what we got and with any hope, new crap from IG.
Is there anything new that thew new Ig might offer to the not so well respected Adeptus Sororitas? Any new lists that stray beyond SoBs in rhinos with flame throwers?
Just food for thought.
Please forgive me of this travesty that is the title of this thread. I should read before hand what I write.

I'm very interested in the valkaries...
20 sisters dropping in where I want them to....EVIL
You can mix it up to spice it up by using sisters as allies to IG (oh no, not them again...heh, heh). Just like I added my DH to my IG, add your sisters for some more mid-range oomph and a little surprise. Imagine this basic mechanized framework:
2x Battle Sisters w/rhino
IG command squad w/chimera
2x stormtrooper grenadiers in chimera
3 Leman Russes
You know, I find my sisters to be quite well respected in my corner of the world. I win more games than I lose, and win moral victories on draws all the time (yeah, you might have 1 troop squad left on your objective, making us tie, but when I've got 3 squads left untouched and the game ends on turn 5, it feels like a win). I'm not too interested in what the IG have to offer except for Storm Troopers in Valkyries for a support element for Apocalypse. I'll either pick up the new plastic stormies (if they're good, and I can wait) or just buy some Pig Iron guys and never plan on taking them to tourneys.
I'm more worried about all these silly tank rumors floating around. If IG get too much armor with ridiculous abilities, my poor sisters may be dying in droves to a couple of the players around here who have enormous IG collections.
Otherwise, to adress the idea that this forum area is dead, I have the feeling that many of us who post here occaisionally are more veteran players who have several armies and already know what we're doing. We don't need the list critique and advice offered in many other forums. Half the questions in the Ork and SM forums are from people who just picked up Black Reach. Be grateful. The spelling is atrocious.
I'm trying to catalog every song with a reference to yetis or Sasquatch. Please help.
WH is not a newbie friendly army for the most part, so we don't get a lot of questions from people who are 'cutting their teeth' those people flock to the SM, CSM, and Ork forums. It's hard for me to even read those forums. nothing makes me want to throw my computer like having to read posts in L33T-pAnIK speak. (it's possibly why I stick to only LO's WH, DH, and IG forums)
I think the most mature forum on LO is probably the DH forum. typically very good reads, and genteel responses.
as far as codex, we've got the most flexible codex available out there. Allies and induction rules allow for a mish-mash of 3 imperial codexes.
so many possibilities. I would be hard pressed to really run out of options on forces to collect.
check out Farmpunk's blog:
the Back 40k
Well it'll liven up soon as I'm starting my WH army and I will have MANY, MANY measly questions to be answered!
I was foolish enough to fall in love with WH after only 2 games with smurfs.....
the learning curve is high and this forum and the old topics helped IMMENSLY but what more can be said than..drive up in in rhino..pop out rain death..jump back in and repeat...
BTW my win ration has gone up a ton due to these boards.
