I'm a fan of a bit of firmness myself (giggity), the fantasy books are so lovely, full colour, pretty writing etc. As a student on a graphics course and a freelance designer, i would love a visually pleasing book. Plus when someone tries to take 20 man CSM squads with a lascannons you can beat their skull in with it.

Eh, chaos are shite, absolute asswank. DA can still be competitive with a mix build at 2k

Ezekiel, Belial, 4 Deathwing Squads, 1 tac squad, 4-6 typhoons, 3 dakka predators. Good solid list. Though chaos have oblits, everything else is pretty bad or overcosted. DA still have deathwing, ravenwing and doublewing, chaos have oblits, that is essentially it.

Neither Chaos or DA deserve it more than Sisters of Battle. SoB may have the most recently updated but all their models except 1 tank is metal, they are over costed compared to other codicies with the exact same wargear, in the IG and GK codex a Eviscerator costs 15pts but in the SoB dex they are 25pts.

Saying one deserves it more than another is an invalid argument 99% of the time as there is usually another army not in the discussion that "deserves" it more. If anything all imperial codicies should be updated after the SoB codex and every non 5E xeno codex has been updated.
SoB, Tau, Eldar, Chaos Space Marines, Chaos Daemons, Orks and then DA and BT.
If we are talking order of deserving it this is a more accurate list but GW WILL NEVER EVER have a release like this.

I'm not so sure on that either personally. I know that if Sister's had a full plastic or even a part plastic release, I would probably pick an army of them up.

I'd be pretty certain they would sell very well though

Well almost everyone i know has a chaos army as well as another army, i would probably wait to see the sisters rules first, because though i like their fluff, i think a lot of people prefer the idea of spiky evil dudes to nuns with guns.

If you a proposing that sisters could be a bigger draw than chaos then you are out of your mind. Chaos is the one and only evil humans book and the sisters compete for a lot of good human spots and the female aspect is not enough, especially since they lack sex appeal which is what would draw kids into buying an all girl army in the first place. There are also very few female players out there. I know 2 out of hundreds of players and both of them are only interested in the hobby because of their husbands.

Not to mention, the fact that chaos has
Demonic models and daemon engines gives them a type of model variety that can't be matched by lOyalist armies. Chaos will always be one of the most popular armies. Hell it's popular even though they butchered the codex.

4,220 CSM
2,320 Necrons
1,870 eldar
1,000 witch hunters (trying to get rid of this)
1,000 SM (trying to get rid of this)
680 Tau (newest addition)
