I was looking at the mini range (which, I know Im not the only who who memorised it), where are my witch hunters? They put out nice ass box sets for all the other races, EVEN DARK ELDAR! Where the hell are my warrior chicks? Is 20 penitent engines TOO much for a massive battlefield? Or how about 10 exorcist tanks? Is the Margin too high to sell a massive set at a reasonable price? Screw you GW, and your massively addictive game; seriously man, I know Im not the only one who gets withdrawls when they go a month without buying Minis.

And there....is my gripe

The thing about Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters is that they're generally considered to be better as allied armies (although in the case of Sisters, that's not true.) So in essence, the idea is that the Space Marine and Imperial Guard releases are for Daemonhunter and Witch Hunter players as well.

i'd say it also has to do with the high proportion of metal to plastic. more profit comes from plastic, and prices can be reduced more easily for bulk. with metal, this is not the case.

Plastic witchunters would be a blessing (along with plastic steel legion)

yeah, but there isnt the demand. iv been playing...three or four years and have seen neither of either army you want in plastic.
Partly true, but also 'chicken and egg'. If there were plastics for customisability, and support with a new Dex that makes them competitive- you'd see the armies. They are very characterful.

and there arent enough sisters to playh in a apocolyptic scale battle fluffwise.
I call Bullshit. There are far more Sisters than Space Marines. Each major Imperial World has Ecclesiarchy buildings guarded by Sisters, whilst Cardinal worlds house Orders of Sisters in the thousands.

The Sisters can mass quite a formidable force to lead Crusades- just check the pics in their Codex, I have no idea where this concept that they are a small police force comes from- that's the Arbites.

so really theres no need to complain, just and add some marines or guard to fill out the ranks.
Generally a lot of people collect Inquisition armies because they've done the Marine army and got the T-shirt. They're bored of it, or they are not interested in them, or they just plain like an Inquisition army.

It's like telling a Ork player to throw in some Tyranid models.


As for whining about not getting new releases for Sisters, etc. with Apoc- deal with it, if your playing Inquisition you should be used to getting nothing.

Build one of those massive Cathedra tanks from the pictures in the book. Increase your Sisters/ Grey knights army with some of the stuff you'd never touch before (Repentia, etc).
Rumours of a VDR mean you can create new Sister/GK vehicles, etc.

I wonder how IG doctrines will work with apocalypse, cause you can theoretically not choose any troop types, and still use them all, but then they probably wouldn't work with any other doctrines you chose.

Apocalypse is intended to let you play whatever-- so you could have a platoon of Cadians and a platoon of Catachans, and use the appropriate doctrines for each platoon if you wanted. The whole point of Apocalypse is to use the models you've got first, and worry about the rules for composing an army with them second. I know I'm not the only one who actually collects as opposed to builds armies-- There's just something nice about having more than you can realistically field in one game, but have the stuff for when you do want to use it.

Have to agree with Jer here. If the Sisters weren't an all metal army, I would easily be fielding well over 2000pts by now. The models are sweet and the rules for them kick extreme ass. It is the prohibitive cost of an army that is all metal that prevents people from getting them. Not to mention the lack of easy customizing that plastic armies have.

I agree there, I hate the metal stuff. I dont care how much better details show up. Platics is also less likley (in my case anyways) to break. and also having to fill in those gaps in the slot bases :evil:
