Isn't there a 5-man box of IG, with easy to build, but only one pose possible models?
And wasn't there a rumour about difficulties with Sister Robes and posing possibilities?
This is wild Speculation, but could this 5 Sisters box be something similar to the 5 man IG box. The no posing feature making it possible to be produced while other Sister Sets suffer Robe-posing issues. Possible? Opinions?

Light your way in the darkness with the pyres of burning heretics.

You have to remember though that in the current codex all the other squds that this box would make the sqaud minimum is 5. Even if its 33 dollars US per box like grey Knights its still a savings compared to current prices assuming we get all the options. As we currently pay around 90 dollars US for 10 models with options.

It's GW. Anything's possible.

Mind you, the Rainbow Warriors thing might be interesting. What if they did bring back that aspect? Not as their main role, but having them purge the odd renegade chapter would make them seem that much more...elite?

Never going to happen.

Remember, GW actually brought back the Rainbow Warriors. It was pretty much the Sisters' only cannon victory, and they retconned it out.

In these modern times, no-one gets to fight marines and win. Especially not the Sisters.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.

I remember a picture of a sister shooting a rainbow warrior. But, I don't know where I saw it.

Whenever 5e was released with Prism, homeworld of the Ranbow Warriors chapter there on the galactic map. I believe it's also in the smurf codex. No word about the chapter being extinct or purged. So far as the book shows, it's a perfectly extant, healthy chapter.

EDIT: Oh, and I seem to recal seeing one on GW's website last year?

DOUBLE EDIT: Yup, here it is: Linky

That picture accompanied the very first mention of the Sisters, back in Rogue Trader days.

Let me dig it up. Here we go:

Was the Rainbow Warriors being purged actual canon? I don't think there was ever more than that picture about it...

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