I know of a player whom uses a black templars template if you like (as I cantthink of a better metaphor) that is a very sucsessfull army. Now I know the fluff and stuff doesnt exactly fit but instead of whining and getting narked about something that GW may never fix play it as a alternative or look for something different as a angle to play. Not only is is for a SoB army effective but he had also included bikes and runs a pentient engine as a dread.
If I find pictures of the bikes he uses its the old VOID bikers converted with the fleur de lys emblem on the front carapace two low mounted bolters painted gloss black with a sister riding upon them weilding swords. It sounds very anime and thats indeed how it looks but hell take GW's ball and run with it and have a better time than some anal GW suit bitching about loosing profit margins.
After squats I do intend on making a SoB army to test ouf my skills. But it doesnt mean that ill use GW's rules (when ever do I )

Everyone bitches about the Sisters entry in the 40k rulebook being tiny. No-one chooses to mention that the GK one is even smaller.
It's lovely to be able to be so very blinkered about things sometimes. Other times it's just irritating and makes the complainant look whiny and childish.
As a Sisters player of over 12 years, I like this list best of what we've had so far. And if I didn't, constant bitching wouldn't change anything, except to put off people trying out the new list (which works just fine, thank you) and so making GW believe that even less people than they thought are interested in Sisters. So we enter the horrible downward Catch 22 spiral, and it's entirely your own fault. So maybe, just maybe, try playing the list and finding ways of enjoying it like I have, or GW may just decide no-one at all likes it and just cans it...

|Majere613||I'm annoyed they didn't fix that idiotic Penitent Engine misprint. I mean, I assume everyone reads it as 1 with the option of up to 2 more, but that's not what it says and we all know there's someone out there who'll argue the toss about it for three hours.|

|Necrosis||GW employees are only human and the do make mistakes. I seriously stop caring about the sister of battle fluff cause I'm expecting it to change in 6th edition. So let's all calm down about it and wait till 6th edition. If it doesn't change then we can all start raging again.|

In the least there has to be millions if not billions. At the very least every world with a billion or more guardsmen has to have a few hundred thousand SoB.
I think the developers can't do math basically. They've forgotten how big the 40k universe really is and how many planets the imperium of man occupy. I believe I've read somewhere that the Sisters defend Ecclisarchy churches and important places, the Ecclesiarchy are also amongst the first on new worlds occupied by humans. Even if there was just a single battle sister on each world with some Ecclesiarichal presence there should be hundreds of thousands of SoB.

Goodness me! A hundred, you say.
One hundred thousand would appear to be the upper limit of such language.
My favourite part, though, has to be:

Yep lot of hate coming down the pipe at the SoB from GW these days. Although I have never been a fan of the army they really should be shown as being at least more effective then regular guardsmen (Not going to happen though with imagined pastoral and modern ideals about the inherent nobility of sacrifice and courage in the British military). Hell they do still wear power armor and carry hand held grenade launchers don't they. SoB seem to almost be a back drop for simply illustrating the idiocy of the religious branch of the imerium.
I say this as 40k these days has attached distinct historical archetypes to every army these days. BT are medieval Christianity during the crusades. GK are a heavily romanticized of generally the same concept. While SoB are a kinda of cathartic venting about the disdain for the Spanish inquisitional period, and other frowned upon puritan movements.
