We know for a fact they already started the models some time ago due to the notorious filigree robes/dark eldar discussion. So its not a hard stretch to say some of the models may already be finished and the WD was no real indecation as to the status of the full line progress, whiich has been true for several other WD codex.

Jez is a perfectionist. He started the DE back in 2006. If there was no set deadlines he may have been pootling on these for a *very* long time until they were right.

Personally, I'm still leaning towards we're getting an easter 2013 release. If I start squeeing and bouncing all over the forums you'll know I've heard something that means they're close...

There are Sisters items on that 'leaked release schedule' list thing. Named Sister items that don't exist yet. Now, on this thread, Bindi has said work will start on SoB after xmas. Which means additional specialist sculpting hasn't started, and names are in no way set down enough for preproduction on boxes or assembly details.

So either the SoB ones are made up, or Bindi is wrong and SoB are much further ahead than he says.
There are already a very good deal of SOB models "banked"

In fact it sounds like there are a stupendous amount of models sitting around gathering dust these days (in regards to almost all codexes)

It could either be that, or you could just be in need of antibiotics

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

That's something we heard a couple of times, even farther back than that.

Jes said he'd been doing something plastic Sisters related before even starting DE. As I recall, his words were 'design hell'.

If he was, he was keeping it very secret from the known big Sisters player who frequently pootled over to his desk to chat and drool over the DE concepts. *shrugs* But then he also works from home a lot.

Best estimate is work has been on a slow boil since early 2009.

Note I never said he was sculpting.

All he said (during the DE launch event) was that Sisters had been in design Hell since before he started working on DE. For all we know, 'design hell' means he was picturing what he wanted to do on the back of his eyelids or doodling on a beer matt at that time.

I was about to say that your guess is as good as mine - but I'm pretty sure it's better.

When they re-model the new sisters, will they make them larger? I heard that the current models are smaller than a Cadian.

^ 40k has a model size creep, in that models keep getting slightly taller and bigger over time. So yes, SoB do look slightly dwarfish compared to newer models like Cadians who are already supposed to be smallish.

^I'm glad, one of the only thing that's stopping me collecting them at the moment is their size. Because then when the new models came out, I would have different sized models I would not be able to handle it. It's just one of my self diagnosed cases of selective OCD.

Also, whenever I see this thread in "new posts", I always get really excited until I remember....

The arcaballista says it always wounds on a 2+. That should read as fleshbane 2+ if this were really a 6th edition book. I call BS
