Ah I see we reached the infamous turning point of bitching about not getting a codex at all and bitching about not liking what's in it I'm absolutely loving it and hoping for some plastic/resign models, if so I'm definetly starting a SoB army in the future!^^

What I really want to see is what they've done with the stuff that was (still) useless in the WDex. Notably Repentia and the Penitent Engine, both of which don't seem to fill any role but that of expensive ablative armour for the rest of the army. I've yet to see either actually ACHIEVE something beyond attracting enemy fire.

... Other than one battle in 5th that had a Space Marine blow up a Rhino with Repentia in it with a close by Land Raider as his last action in his Shooting Phase - only to then realize what that meant.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

GOD DAMN YOU GW! Just when I said I'm not wasting anymore money this month you have to come out with this..please tell me it's not released until the end of the month.

P.S. Wait...really 15 additional Sisters for a total of 20? That seems a bit much. Sigh looks like I know what allied detachment I'm going to start with, if the sisters are in plastic/ cheap finecast

Battle Sisters could go up to 20 since the Witch Hunter codex, so that's nothing new.

As a long time (long suffering) SOB player I think that any attention the sisters get is good attention.

Please listen to my PODCAST

In the WDdex both Repentia and Penitent Engines got a lot better than in C:WH. For one, Repentia could ride in tanks. And Engines could get double digits of attacks in combat... Plus Rage no longer meant they had to charge pellmell, but instead just got extra attacks

Let's see what the whole thing does now. I'll be happy if the Canoness and retinue are worth taking...

It probably wasn't a goof. It's possible they were just revamping things and he found it mid update. Retail websites go through changes all the time, and items will appear and disappear. Perhaps it was given a new item number, or there was an auto-update to the product's ID or something. Or they've been making changes to the pages. Could have even been an inventory thing.

It's like everyone wants to be Sam Spade and find the first clue or something to post about on a forum. The problem is, usually they just end up being Inspector Clouseau.

The reality is that it's short disappearance just had to do with maintenance/modification to the page or the item, and not a mistake.

If Marneus Calgar is supposed to be "one of the Imperium's greatest tacticians" and he treats the Codex like it's the War Bible, but the Codex is garbage, then how bad is everyone else?

Penitent Engines didn't start that way in the WD codex. Remember we had a year of being in 5th edition where they completely sucked. I will try to remain cautiously optimistic however about this new codex. I am a mild pessimist by nature unfortunately as my lack of faith in the rest of humanity is constantly sustained. When something good happens though, I am that much happier for it.

True, but what you have to bear in mind is that the WDdex was written for 6th, and when penned the rulebook was finished and ready to go to pre-production. So in the writers eyes, they were always that way in this version. I remember playing a game against Phil just before the WDdex came out, and he was very confused about what things did, and how 40k worked in 5th.

Once they'd written it, they would have gotten someone else to go through it and change names back to 5th ed versions.

I'm really hoping some of the things that got sent to them have been taken into account. I forwarded several critiques for people from this forum, as well as my own. *fingers crossed*
