I have to call it George? ohh so that's what I've been doing wrong.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Back on topic I was under the impression that the sisters release has been delayed so long due to the chapter house scandal (hazy rumours from my sources here)

Back when that first broke out I am informed that when GW first started prosecuting chapter house they decided to tie up potential copyright issues by releasing kits for unreleased entries in codicies (like the Tervigon) but sisters gr missed out because they incorporate too many Fleur-dy-lys on the models themselves which is hard/impossible to trademark (hence why Brettonians have also not had a release).

I was under the impression that when the last sisters rumours came out which resulted in the codex the models were held back because if this issue and will be released later. Like maybe soon for instance although I HEAVILY doubt they will be a May release. At least not to those I know.

He is, he admitted it was his "baby" soon after DE were released,
he's mentioned it several times over several years for various reasons,
when there was all the fuss over the sculpting problems there were unconfirmed quotes from him that DE had moved ahead of SOB (followed by lots of caterwauling that SOB had gone the way of Squats)
this will be his last "major" project, I understand.......

No, delays have been down to a perfectionist being in charge of the project,
a perfectionist who regularly gets pulled in several different directions............

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?

Doubting this. Chapterhouse simply doesn't sell any SoB parts. Now if it were (for example) Raging Heroes then maybe, but Chapterhouse? Not seeing the connection.

Its possible that the chapter house events affected the sisters, the resulting fall out from the case may have meant resources were moved to fix other areas, GW have been doing some funky stuff in the last couple of years with stuff getting dropped and they popping up again and unparalleled new releases, it could be that the sisters were put on the back burner while GW reacted to the case in the US.

Ultimately i think its just investment of time vs profit, turning an entirely metal army to plastic this late in the day is gonna take some doing, if they want it doing right then jes will be doing it and he never rushes anything.

Then I'm less upset.

Yeah.......they don't do 'not' SoB but their 'not' other stuff is.....pretty blatant rip offs. Not to mention the fact they pretty much use every non copy righted name, i.e. Tau, Space Marine. Even use the Tau's emblem on a walker that has a burst cannon junk.

And this I'm not gonna argue with. However, I don't recall Chapterhouse touching the Sisters at all.

I'm ever hopeful that GW will be releasing SoB figures, but I am not holding my breath. There have been too many false dawns. But if they do I may even be tempted to create a fully fledged army of Nuns with guns.

I hope they still have pentient engines of some sort. I also wonder what 'big' model they would go for?

One thing to bear in mind is that from concept to release can be anything from 18 months to 3 years for some models. With a complete rebuild this could explain why it has taken so long to get them built after the DE release.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

A bottom was pinched, there was a restraining order.
