Was thinking of starting on a Witchhunter army once Ive got my Space Marine and Ork ones finished and stuff but there does seem to be a lack of Witchhunter product on the Games Workshop site.
The Codex looks ancient (any sign of a new one), there is not Battleforce (again, any news?) and the force looks a bit limited in options.
Any info on how to make and interesting WH force and any news on them expanding appreciated.
The codex is starting to get a little outdated, as it is a 3rd edition codex. The reason for there not being a battleforce is that battleforces are made purely of plastic models, and our only plastic model is the immolator. So unless you want a Battleforce of 3 Immolators, we are kinda stuck.
Edit: Wow, I didn't realise how much I messed up on the first sentance. My keyboard is wireless and sometimes doesn't pick up exactly what I type. I REALLY need to proofread my posts.

Hi all! There are a fair number of choices of troop types if you use the whole list and not just Sisters I think. Penitent Engines, Arco-Flagellants, Inquisitorial Stormtroopers, along with all the Sister types, I think you could make a varied and flavorful army for 1750-2000 pts. Whether it would win a lot or not, I don't know. All the tacticas I read were for Sisters only armies...
A battle force boxset sure would be nice, I hope one comes out soon, though I haven't heard anything about one. I want to make a Footslogger Sisters army after I finish my mechanized one, and really could use the savings battle force boxes always bring.
War in life, peace in death.
Huh? Don't mean to be rude, but here at LO we appreciate being able to read what is written. Please take the time to type intelligibly.The codex is starttget a le dd.tis sll a 3rd editin codex.
As good as the WH army is, it's not very popular. That's why GW hasn't come out with a battleforce set. The initial setup for it is expensive. They won't do it unless they think they can recoup their investment in a certain amount of time. The Marine armies probably outsell the WH 20 to 1 or more so it's worth it to make such a set for them.
Until a new Inquisition codex comes out (probably combining both the WH and Daemonhunters and hopefully adding a Xenos Hunter as well) and who knows how long that'll be, you're stuck with a very expensive-to-collect but very good pewture army.
In friendly games, if your opponent doesn't mind, you can proxy regular marines as stand-ins for some of your sister forces.
I couldn't imagine an all metal battleforce.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
You're probably right, sigh. I love the pricing on plastic Fantasy Battalion Sets. You usually get 4 $35 box sets worth of goodies for $90. If only they could do the 4 for the price of 3 deal on Sisters of Battle! I would pounce at the chance to get 40 Sisters for $120...ohmigosh, did I just say that?
Well, instead of a battle force set, let's pray for a plastic Sisters of Battle set! Daemonettes go for 10 for 22 dollars, if Sisters costed that much I'd be in Heaven GW must, they have to! Sisters are like our core, absolutely must have Witch Hunter troops!
Long live Librarium Online!
A lot of my Sisters models I got second-hand for a fraction of the shelf price, you might want to ask around in your local gaming club or have a look on Ebay and see if there's anything doing. A lot of poeple make Sisters armies then get all frustrated and annoyed with them when they discover they don't play like Lady Marines so you shouldn't have much difficulty.
Worst comes to worst just green-stuff some boobs onto a load of Smurfs.
plastic would be awsome...and maybe some modeling differences for celestians....ohh and some bits!!!!

meh i guess im just a snob, i think some armies need to stay metal and expensive.
I like armies like this because they take time to collect, you take more care with them, paint them better and appreciate them more. Its like a special thing for the more advanced gamers and painters and to look at and say wow!
you want mass of plastic stick to the more used armies.
This is a really positive way to see the all metal line of Witch Hunter models. Wow, I'm impressed that you can see the virtue of an all metal army, and find it well worth the cost! I like plastics, the amount of detail they have nowadays is incredible. And they aren't so fragile as I had feared they would be. But there is something 'permanant' and 'quality' about a nice white metal model, just as you say Thanks for posting this, it helps me appreciate my models a little more and not be solely worried about the price tag. There sure is more to miniatures than just that
Emperor guide and bless you!
