Hello, I have been wanting to start a Sisters army and I was wanting to do it right, Repressors, Forgeworld Exorcists, Sisters Knight, I know they aren't the most competitive list but I think they would be fun. Had a lot of plans for nice Conversions and everything.


The problem I have is, I am seeing a lot of the stuff is not available or taken down all together.

Repressers - No longer on Forgeworld.
Forgeworld Exorcists - No longer on forgeworld.
Immolators - No longer Available on Games Workshop site.

Is this the end of Sisters? Are they going the way of the Squat?

Addressing the points individually :

1) Forgeworld exorcists and immolators - are gone permanently as far as anyone knows. Forgeworld basically said straight out they were discontinued rather than their usual "it needs to be recut".

2) Repressors - are gone for an indeterminate, possibly permanent time. 'Being recut'.

3) Immolators - possibly gone, possibly not. They were 'sold out' for a while on the UK site - Aug 2nd until Aug 7th this year. It has been gone on the US site for about a month now but that may just be a stocking issue with all the tau and heresy stuff.

4) End of the sisters - GW made several big rounds of cutbacks to the line a while back, with the last big cutback in May 2014, but they have been pretty steady since then. They only seem to hold a small amount of stock at any given time but they do cast new models to replace it.

Obviously the current line is on suicide watch as GW don't look like they want to continue their metal lines for too long, but the finecast mess may have extended that deadline a bit. If they are squatted it'll be sudden and without warning like the death of the specialist lines, but at this immediate point in time they are still being cast.

-------

The repressor is quite commonly scratch built, and the forgeworld exorcist is really just a razorback mount with a pair of generic missile tubes on it so don't let those two put you off. Not ideal I know. Getting a hold of the missing infantry models will take a bit more work trawling ebay but if you don't mind paint stripping the availability is still decent.

If you like the look of them from a hobby perspective, and if the missing stuff hasn't kiboshed your plans, then go for it. They should remain valid as a codex unless GW does something drastic with the core rules even if the model line is left to languish for another decade or two.

Repressers - No longer on Forgeworld - It's a shame but easily converted from the Immolator kit
Forgeworld Exorcists - No longer on forgeworld - These were not nice minis, I'd personally rather use the Pipe Organ o' Doom!
Immolators - No longer Available on Games Workshop site - Still available in the UK; http://www.games-workshop.com/en-GB/Sisters-of-Battle-Immolator


Thankfully most of the minis in the current codex are still available in one form or another & avoided the finecast treatment. They could still use a better book but not dead by a long way :)

Thank you both for the response. Guess this is going to be a heavily converted army. :) Which isn't really a bad thing. I am a decent painter/converter above average and I was wanting to go all out with this so I guess this will be a challenge for me.

Already have plans for Seraphim, with Dark Eldar Scourge wings.

I am going forward as EBAY is full of Sisters stuff. Expensive but its there and I don't mind Paint stripping. Especially Metal models.

With vehicles you do get a lot of gubbins on the sprue when you buy boxed so keep that in mind. Note that exorcist comes with a complete immo kit save for the transparent front window. You do also tend to get less than the full complement of arms when buying a second hand canoness and those arms are useful for conversions.

Thank you Sir, that is great help. I currently have 6000 points of Dark Eldar and I wander how hard it would be to use the left over windows from Venoms for the Transparent front window? HMMM Will have to look for that.

Still having a debate on what I want to do. Not a huge fan of the Organ Style Exorcist but the Forgeworld ones are going for 70+ on eBay.

May have to look around some more.

It would be easy to convert Repressors from Rhinos (or Vindicators for the dozer shield) with the Sisters upgrade sprue, and Exorcists from either Whirlwinds or the Forgeworld Scorpius.

This post has both the valkyrie kitbash exorcist (top of the thread) and the actual forgeworld exorcist (near the end) -
http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?411554-Tvetovs-Imperials-%28IG-Sororitas-and-Crimson-fists%29

Whirlwinds pods (current, forgeworld, and even the old metal missiles) are commonly used as exorcists. Even typhoon launchers in some cases.
Forgeworld also sell smaller pods but i've never seen them used so I can't comment on size :

It's a shame the forgeworld exorcist/immolator went out as the deimos came in as the two kits fit really well together.

Word from on high at GW is that Ad. Sor. will be going away in the future they have no plans to redo the digital codex and as the models go there are no plans to replace the molds. They may be getting rolled into another codex with a smaller line of madels but on their own I fairly sure we can expect them to all but disappear in the coming years.

When I was there last year I heard a lot of jokes about how Sisters were never coming back. But I heard even more vitriol from GW managers directed at the idea of Specialist Games coming back, and lo, SGs are returning. As obtuse as GW can be, never say never.

Sisters don't exactly have a lot of support to lose. I feel like if you weren't scared to do it now, you shouldn't worry if they lose support entirely (a fate that I find unlikely, especially in light of GW's current behavior).

mrmagoo73
17-11-2015, 15:18
Understood, but if they were to loose complete support that means I have $500+ of stuff I cant Get rid of.

Actually now that I really think about it, if that was to ever happen then I just turn them into Female Marines, don't think anyone would argue with that. Few conversions to replace guns? Ok I am still doing it.

Thanks

Ok I have another question, This is actually a modelling question. There is a Adeptus Soritas army on eBay right now. Nice army going for a good price at the moment but claims there are no Backpacks. So the question is are Sisters back packs much different then Marines? Marine backpacks are going for $4 for 10 so that would be good if I get this cheep enough.

The backpacks are different, but not that different, when I get home I'll do a comparison shot with one of each.

They lost support a decade ago. Still collectible though and should retain value even if entirely squatted. A new plastic range might well cause the price to go down...

In terms of backpacks they are visibly larger, but not ridiculously so.

Ignoring, for the moment, that the more sales the Sisters range gets, the more likely they are to continue to get support, or even get an update (and thus I'd be invested in having people keep playing them);

I don't think it's very likely that Sisters will get dropped. As I've pointed out on a couple of occasions, if they were gonna drop them, the time to do would have been during the shift from 5th to 6th. There was only the (largely unavailable) White Dwarf codex to play at the time. They could have quietly dropped them from the fluff and let the model line run out. Instead, while they didn't put MUCH time and effort into them, they did put some, so I doubt they're gonna drop them now.

And if they do, so what? I've got 4,500 points of Sisters, and if they dropped the range tomorrow I'd start converting some stuff and have a very unique looking Black Templars army (since their Chapter Tactics fit Sisters the most).

Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I am still going to run sisters. I have always wanted to but they are so expensive. To get them eBay is selling on average of $5 a fig. But at this point I am going to be starting them. Guess though I am going to have to convert Repressors. Does anyone know what Forgeworld book they are in?

I need to pick it up for tournament reasons.

They're in War Machines of the Adeptus Astares. If you check out various eBay sellers or Sisters groups, you can usually find some pretty solid Repressor conversion tutorials, or even just someone selling the Repressor upgrades. I got a set of 3D printed Repressor upgrades for something like 20 bucks, plus shipping, a little while ago.

Don't sell them, they're still a fun army. They're actually probably middle tier right now, with their biggest issue being how small the army is. They can take people by surprise though and with careful use and/or good allies, they can do pretty well. I've won 13, lost 1 and drawn 0 games with my Sisters army since the beginning of 7th edition.

Well selling them now could net you some profit or once they are cancelled they could go up in value like squats after a while. I do whish they weren't going to be basically wiped out as a model line but at least some of the models will be getting rolled into a codex made up of some other small factions.

First time I heard Sisters were gone for good was in the wake of the 5th edition White Dwarf book. Multiple people were telling me with complete certainty that the line was done, that the army was going to be squatted and the models quietly sold off. That was 4 years ago. They got a new digital codex, a copyright friendly rename, and large chunks of fluff in a campaign book.

I also heard that, at various points, that Dark Eldar, Black Templars and even Necrons, were going to get dropped. Not one of them has been. And there are more factions now than ever. They made an entire new faction based around a single UNIT from the Eldar and Dark Eldar codices.

So unless you've got really good evidence of that, you'll forgive me if I don't take that claim super seriously.

Harlequins are hardly an 'entire new' faction - though I was surprised they came back. Both ranges, Harlequins and Sisters, were designed by Jes Goodwin and I think that he had no small part in the revival of the former (it was really unexpected, for me at least). So I guess there's hope.

I'll believe Sisters are being dropped when there's an official announcement in White Dwarf to the effect, or when they're taken down from the website. Until then, it's just GW being GW, neglecting a line for reasons.

The current stuff going on with the Tau being updated in a campaign book suggests another way GW could update the Sisters. They could get bundled into a campaign book.

They could get bundled into a campaign book.They were in shield of baal but it was a complete wash for them rules wise.

Okay. He works in Nottingham. Assuming you're telling the truth, why are you the only one told? Why has no other rumor person mentioned "Oh by the way, an army that's been part of the game for 2 decades, longer than either Dark Eldar or Tau, they're getting dropped. All that work they put into giving them a 6th edition codex, and including them in Shield of Baal? Nah, that's getting thrown out the window."

It seems odd is all I'm saying. Someone probably would have mentioned it.

There was nothing 'new' about the name 'Adepta Sororitas', it has been attached to sisters as long as there have been sisters (it's pretty much their equivalent of 'adeptus Astartes' is for SM.

That's not how GW discontinue armies, they string you along forever thinking 'maybe this year' then one morning you wake up and realise it has been three editions since your army was mentioned or pictured in an official GW product and the mechanics of the game have changed so much that your last codex doesn't even make sense any more.

Yeah I know, but Adepta Sororitas is a much more copyright friendly name than Sisters of Battle (similar to Astra Militarum/Imperial Guard), so that points to holding on to the army, at least as far as copyright was concerned (again, if they were going to drop Sisters, the time to do it was when we only had the White Dwarf codex).

If that's the case, then we've still got 2 more editions before we wind up there, since we technically got an update in 6th and we keep getting fluff and model appearances (appeared in all three books of the rule books, Grey Knights codex, Shield of Baal).

But Martyred Lady is easy (and just about every ebay model comes pre-painted in that scheme). Lets see a really good sacred rose. Especially an immolator, all that white space just doesn't look right and weathering/edging white without building it up from a darker colour is something that could really do with a guide.

Immolator has gone from 'sold out' to missing entirely, so that looks to be permanently gone.

As the exorcist is still available (and did go briefly out of stock a couple of weeks back) i'd guess this is either further downsizing or clearing space in the warehouse for other lines rather than the death of the mold, unless there was some kind of issue with the transparent plastic canopy.

And how often has this happened with Bretonnians? Lizardmen? and so on?

Of course, it could also represent the fact that they have geared up for a Sororitas reboot, and aren't willing to ship any more to the US, too. Not likely, but a possibility.

Is it listed on any of the other country's access?

I'm not suggesting it's impossible that the immolator might come back, but this isn't exactly the first time in the past few years that things have been removed from the sisters lineup on an indefinite basis.

I would be surprised if it comes back after this long, though not displeased. While sororitas models frequently go out of stock they don't normally vanish for this long.

The Immolator is gone from all of the storefronts, but the Exorcist is gone from none of them, which as pointed out, comes with the exact same kit (so if you're desperate for more Immolators, you have an absurdly expensive option...not that you're unused to the army being absurdly expensive if you play Sisters). So unless there is some odd problem with the plastic canopy, I have to assume the Immolator will be returning.

Probably costing the same as a Space Marine Razorback, which could be their plan (since the Immolator costs as much as a Rhino, but comes with options for both).

Look guys, since GW now has an small Centralised Warehouse and reduced their Stock a few years ago (because an large Stock and even one in every Country is very Expensive), they have to Produce a lot of Stuff if it goes out. Specially in the Cristmas business! So armys like Sororitas, which is kind an army for admirers, wont have any priority in their Production at all !!!
Stuff like SMs Tau, ect. goes well, so that the stuff you want to produce, if your time is limited..... :mad:

The concern is that GW have discontinued a lot of SoB models that didn't need to go (it's not as if every single seraphim superior mold just broke at the same time after all). If it's just a stock space thing then hopefully someone remembers to bring it back.

So what I was told is true, sorry to have been the bearer of bad news.BoLS is a little behind the times - the FW immolator and exorcist were pulled in 2013 and 2014.

In terms of the line being trimmed down:
Early 2004 - Sister with banner pole (re-released with head/arm swaps for 3rd ed), original canoness, mk1 immolator, frateris x4
Mid 2010 - codex, box sets
May-June 2013 - Kyrinov, all seraphim superiors
Sept 2013 - FW immolator (after months out of stock)
May-June 2014 - flamer 1, meltagun 1, stormbolter 1, seraphim 2, 3x superiors (chainsword, maul, plasma pistol), missionary with plasma gun
Nov 2014 - FW exorcist
Aug 2015 - repressor
Dec 2015 - GW immolator (out of stock since October)

Unknown - priest with book, priest with club, direct only seraphim, shrine, ephrael.

Someone in the BoL's comments has said he's emailed GW and the mould has apparently broke and has no word if or when it'll be repaired. So a heads up that those Exorcists may be while stocks last.

On the question of if SoB will get axed I feel it's unlikely, GW is bringing back specialist games for god's sake. I think its safe to say they won't pass up an opportunity for another imperial faction which can ally with SM, IG, AM etc etc. Real question is if they'll do any maintenance of the range until then. They could even drop off the website altogether for a re-launch.

Also to add to what A.T. said, I'm sure Uriah Jacobus was missing for quite some time before he reappeared.

The dialogus and hospitaller may have also briefly been pulled at some point in 2010-2011.

Did you read it? It said they don't know what's going on, not that they're going for good. And they're a little behind, the Repressor has been gone for a while (I e-mailed Forge World a while ago, they said the mold broke and they're "Working on it," but I don't think it's high priority).

The Dialogus and the Hospitaller have been available pretty much permanently since Witch Hunters. Jacobus went down briefly during the White Dwarf codex (all the way out as I recall, since I didn't have him and started making army plans to have a Confessor be my leader, so I didn't think he was coming back) but he came back a little before the Digital Update.
