Ah will be sad to see this thread closed, one of the few things on the internet worth reading.
The only thing I thought might be interesting to still figure out is which models they aren't selling anymore to gauge the possibility of them actually getting the real release all done and scheduled. Them having old models still on the shelf presents no incentive for them to get busy with the new ones to sell.
I couldn't get Uriah Jacobus.
I did get St. Celestine.
These were both about a month ago. I can also contact a store I know who ordered more SoB stuff some of which he said he didn't get in to figure out more. That's all I had though.

It being a hobby article, to me, just seems like GW didn't bother, doing a proper article (although I admit, not being the most objective mind on that matter).
And not having finished painting because it was new!?! What a stupid excuse is that!!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but those models are old. The only thing left for me to believe is nobody at GW has bothers even the slightest about Sisters and certainly no one playing/having/painting sisters in all the years since the WH Codex.
I'm not saying there is anything wrong with what you wrote, but there is always more than one way to see things! Ours are obviously different.

Just a quick note on that provided link, given I'm on my phone and not a computer.
That is a hobby article, based on Robin's personal army. Did you read what was written underneath? The bit that was unpainted was one unit, added in recently, that he specifically explains he hasn't painted yet as it's new.
If it was an actual tactica or WD article with unpainted figures I'd understand, but this is an online hobby article, which explains itself. This is nothing new, and not the personal insult many seem to be taking it as...

|Suijin||TheKingElessar may have a point if you are talking about the most competitive lists out there, like say GK purifier spam. I can't imagine being competitive with that army at the same points level. Repentia will be cut down due to the power weapons and cleansing flame, so aren't going to be as effective (due to no FNP vs power weapons). DCA should still do well, but 1 unit can't carry the whole army, unless you are playing only a 350 point game or something.|

EDIT: Just redid my 2K list and realized I've been using a 1750 one instead. And that tied once against a 2K list (Blood Angels in KP) and beat 2K of Necrons.

There's a debate?
This Dex is inferior to the other 5e ones, even Nids.
It has fewer options, fewer units, fewer weapons, more overpriced stuff, and less of a Competitive edge to the one build you can make, nevermind multiple builds.
I wrote an army list I was happy with, and felt could compete with my other armies at 2k.
It came to 2546 points.

SilverTabby, I'm sorry for accusing you to play only to win! What led me to believe so, was this comment:
Adapting my strategies and style of play to new circumstances, is something I am very much able to (if my brain is up to it!).
But whether I can enjoy a game/my army has almost nothing to do with adapting to anything. While I can't change what GW released, I can decide to stop playing 40k. But that's a decision I won't take lightly, as I have spent considerable amounts of time and money into my models. Furthermore the thing with emotions is, they are very subjective, sometimes a usually fun thing to do isn't just because I have a bad day. So it's either playing the new dex month after month to make sure those bad days don't ruin my ability to judge OR inform myself how other players feel. (Of course paying attention to the fact, that people happy with something, usually don't run to internet just to state they have nothing to complain about and thus the general image shown is always a bit darker than it should!)
On the other hand, having to wait a long time for an update and receiving this WDex can be a bit of a trauma! Talking about it and finding people who feel the same as you can be quite relieving. What you may call whining, is something others may call therapy!
As such I still see the "get over it!" part critically, because it's still ordering people what to say and what not. And that's a moderators job, I think.
Finally, the requested link!

It is possible to win with the codex. I just did versus Necrons, but my issues are more the flexibility of the codex and tactics. These are:
I'll still play this dex as it is my primary army and you can win with it, but there is no denying it is incomplete/unfinished/wanting.
