Really torn between which edition to grab... On one hand the army case that comes with the Gamers Edition would be nice for a squadron of Baneblades, but then I do fuck all of gaming never mind Apocalypse. On the other hand the Collectors Edition looks sort of cool, but I wonder how cheap a material is that box? Just plain normal cardboard or is it similar to the 40k Rulebook CE Box material? I also dislike the amount of paper sheets and flimsy looking booklets that come inside of it. I‘d have preferred the same format the 40k CE book, thicker, heavier and different design instead of small tome along with shitload of paper.

The special editions of the 6th edition rulebook were a lot better value for money in my opinion, so this time around picking both of them does not seem like nearly an as good idea..

Sounds like it will be similar to something the Blood Angels already have. But instead of 3 LRCs, they only need one, accompanied by 2-4 Baal Predators. You basically link fire the Assault Cannons, which creates a line of death 18" wide. Anything under it is severely punished as is anything that crosses the line before your next turn. Nice area denial for infantry.

I wasn't asking for much here, just some rules and formations. There are no cards that seem specific to the Sisters from what I could see, and if there are any formations in the book they're strangely missing under the formations tab.
Same here its all crap.

Only thing I will get is the dice 125 for 18 is good value and hopefully means I will never need new dice again.

BT got a bunch of formations under the Armaggedon tab. Sounds like there will be an Armaggedon supplement down the road. Hailstorm Crusader formation, Sons of Grimaldus, and Heroes of the Imperium. Good sign for us. Im definitely picking up more Crusaders now. If GW were -smart- they would have had a bundle deal on the Hailstorm and I would have picked it up immediately. Guess Ill be going elsewhere. Again.

A pretty average release there. Nothing REALLY grabs my eye massively. Still nice to see Apocalypse back though.

I'll be picking up select models from the range for sure

The only thing I like out of the whole lot is the SM executioner assault captain. Not bothered with the rest.

I agree, best individual character model by GW for a long time. However i do still like all the other stuff too. Army bundles are under-rated in my opinion as people only think about the finicial benefits instead of the others.

Creating our own has always been an option but it lacks the "officialness" that having it in the book provides.

Besides, this is just another mark in GW's looooooooooooooooooooong list of things they do that ignore the Sisters. I really don't feel like supporting a specialist game that ignores me as a customer (by ignoring my army) so blatantly.

nothing too exciting, the Lord Executioner is on the list to buy.

the aquila strongpoint &vengence weapons are interesting, and I will prolly get them and put on some of my large terrrain pieces... eventually.
