Tell me about it, I play a canoness and it never fails to be an utter waste of points every game.

Seriously, somebody explain me how that thing is worth as much as a chaos lord. Please.

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.
That's interesting. I noted when the codex came out that the writers were not playing the same game as me. Turns out I was right. In fact I was downright pissed about the whole thing. It turned out to be significantly more effective once 6th hit.

Boobs are all well and good, but they dont really have an in-game effect.

Actually, there are two scenarios I can think of:

1) The Cannoness is in a Rhino that gets into a front-end collision and the boobs function as air-bags, thereby allowing her to survive and continue the persecution of the Emperor's enemies.

2) Your girlfriend walks in while you are in the middle of a battle, and the prescence of a biological female in the room serves as so much of a distraction for your socially-inexperienced opponent that he cant keep his mind on the match and is gloriously crushed.

Well I guess I have to take back getting screwed vs SM, as they pay +10 points also for their veteran. Now don't get me wrong I think both of them are still way over priced, but at least they are the same.

I guess there is hope for 10 Heavy Flamers, but probably not the Condemnor Boltgun.

Me: "I don't think invested is the right word."

I decided to dust off an old text file and finally finish and post it - has some thoughts on all the stuff in the WDex. Might be interesting to see what other people think while it's still semi-relevant.

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

It's up. http://www.blacklibrary.com/games-wo...Sororitas.html

20 pounds, 26 Euro, and for the dollar crowd it's 33 US, 35 Canadian, and a happy Screw You Again Australia at 40 Australia. By actual exchange rate according to Google 20 pounds should be closer to 23.5 Euro, 32 USD, 33 CDN, and 33.5 AUD, but there's taxes to consider and I suppose sending the eBook through the internet all the way to the Aussies costs GW a lot of money

There's also a bunch of one-click collections to support it... which only showcase once again that Sister players are playing the most expensive army of the lot.


EDIT: Seriously, I knew it was bad, but with the collections (which naturally only save you TIME) it becomes bleeding obvious. Holy f*ck.
