Here's the post on the matter, I put up a while ago. It's based on how old current codices are.

According to that, Black Templars are due.

I really don't mind the current SoB models or dex, if it was just affordable. Give us a $30 boxset of a 10 sister squad, and I'll play them again.

Unfortunately, I think GW has decided to let SoB die. It really does suck, because the army has some wonderful potential.

Thanks for the correction mcmuffin, I need it every once in a while. But I still stand that the Templars need to be updated. The cyclones on the speeders are different then the updated ones and I think the old ones are worse than the new. The apothecary still uses the old rules and does not give his unit feel no pain which sucks. The predator is still the old fashion one which can be alittle more expesive then the newer ones, which negates the fact that I save points on the speeders now.

This was all fixed in an official errata over a year ago.

Everything you have mentioned here has been covered and updated in the FAQ. Cyclones and typhoons are updated to the new ones, the apothecary has been updated, the BT pred can take PotMS, which is a pretty big advantage. Termies with cyclones can have tank hunters, so 4 S9 shots per unit, which is pretty good. all in all the codex is still solid.

Source? Because the last rumors I heard had models at least attempting to be developed and GW saying they weren't going to pull another Squat manuever on anything with a codex at the time (which includes Sisters).

Seriously, can we go more than a page when someone mentions Sisters before someone brings up that GW is going to get rid of them? If GW got rid of every under-performing/underselling army we'd be playing Marines vs Marines in SPAAAAAAACE not 40K.

It is like Godwin's law, except about squats. As an internet discussion about 40k goes on, the probability of someone mentioning squats approaches 1.

And when Sisters are mentioned the probability of Squats being mentioned or implied becomes 2-300% more likely.

Seriously, one of the Developers HAS a Sisters army. Why would they squat them if one of them actually collects/plays them?
