    I heard somewhere that some pieces are being phased out of the Sisters collection. If so, who? Someone please tell me so I know what NOT to buy.
    EDIT: Can standard Sisters or Dominions still carry Heavy Bolters? It doesn't say they can in the official Rules...

    I don't think any current SoB model is going to be useless- they will all be useful. As for heavy bolters, I think only Retributor squads can take them, but I don't have the rules within reach (all the way across the room ), but I think that's how it is.

    Just the Redemptionists are being phased out so far. Recent rumours about them that I've heard going around on the sob mailing list is that the redemptionists will be in whitch hunters but seperate from the sob, like their own army, but there is much speculation over the actual truth of this. GW has not released much and there's a lot of problems going on at the moment on the sob mailing list with identifying fact and fiction. I'm just trying to pass on what seems the most relative and factual-based, but who knows the redemptionists may after all stay with us. As far as I can pick out of the rumors its just the redemptionists that will be parting us. But I’ll keep you updated if I see anything else that is fact-based!
    As for the sisters in general there is a rumour that they are going to change the stats and the points, but I can’t be certain wether this is true or not. Sorry not much help there.

    Can standard Sisters or Dominions still carry Heavy Bolters? Only a Canoness, celestian superior or VETRAN sister superior may choose other items from the wargear list. So otherwise if it does not say so in CA then nope you can’t. Up to 4 dominions can be armed with a flamer or a meltagun (I highly recommend meltagun’s). But with Battle sisters you just have 2 sisters with that option. So nope sorry.

    Hope that sorts some stuff out for you!!

    Sis, you do realize that Heavy bolters are a squad member upgrade and don't feature in any armoury list do you ?

    yes, but the only squads that allows that option are Celestian&#39;s, Celestian Bodyguards, Redemptionists and a retributor squad. Not in a standard Battle sister squad or dominion squad, which I think that deciever was asking about.
