Here are some rought news I've managed to dig out...not much but it's something:


Witchhunters will see the Inquisitor (female version also) have the
Famulous, Diagolous, Imagifer and Hospitaller as 'henchmen' and not
part of an HQ slot.

Assassins will only be available if an Inquiistor is taken, but the
Inq can have the death cult assassins and we can also have a Callidus
as an elite choice.

New minis for Imagifer, Diagolous and hospitaller.
Also new seraphim and canoness.

Rhinos back in troop squads.

New exorcist to reflect arcane description, central 'hatch' with
figure operating an organ like apparatus. missile tubes will resemble
organ pipes at the rear of the vehicle.

Living saint, serahim like, golden armour.

More background on main orders and some on lesser orders which are
offshoots from the original six. The six sisters who were taken in to
see the Emperor on the golden throne become the founders of the six
main orders.

No, they're getting a codex, the WD numbers are just an indication of timing.

Nice find Sister Mel. I eagerly await adding to my SoB forces :D

I'm more then willing to bet you can use SOB/WH with DH. I mean, they're all Imperial, you know GW tries to let the Imperial armies be interchangeable.

as i live in Aus, alot of this is meaningless as GW kindly chooses to delay its news here for a few weeks

however, enough whinging, from the sound of it, the SoB may be worth collecting again (I always did like them)so does any1 know where i can find pictures of the new releases for them?

So I guess there's no website with info from GW itself... well, hopefully these rumors are more reliable than those about Reprisal of Evangelion... ;)

Old Sisters of Battle? Not sure what you mean by that. All the previously available units will still be available, except for Repemptionists, it look like

As it comes to the main core of sisters I doubt that their will be much change and yes they will still be allowed in game rules. The things you need to be cautionned at the mo is with redemptionits. But I can't be for certain of anything else, GW have released very little...they are being annoyingly secreative <_< But don't worry about standard battle sisters and so forth, yes they may change the stats a bit (but thats doubtful) but they are not getting rid of those sunit choices.

Sister of Battle Rumors!!!!!!!!!! Fact or fiction only the Emperor knows but here’s what’s been going around recently:


First off New pictures:
http://www.home.zonnet.nl/b.loch/pics/40k/...k_inq_model.jpg
http://www.home.zonnet.nl/b.loch/pics/40k/...40k_sisters.jpg
http://www.home.zonnet.nl/b.loch/pics/40k/...s_of_battle.jpg



Rumour 1: Not only will sisters gain BS4, but they will gain S4. The reasoning
being the power armor. Apparently, the running thought is that any model
in power armor will get S4 (including inquisitors, etc.) This would not include
eldar who have AS 3+, asss that is not power armor, but wraithbone armor, and
it's not the same thing... Not sure how much I believe this one, or like it
if it's true. The points costs would make sisters a much smaller army, which
also ties this into: But in a message dated 10/6/2003 5:37:04 PM Eastern Daylight Time, "David Gibson"

>All that said, I'll eat my hat if GW bestows S4 on Battle SIsters.

I'M GETTING ANOTHER UPDATE REAL SOON SO CHEACK BACK ON THIS THREAD IN A DAY OR TWO FOR THE LATEST SOB NEWS!!
