Will they ever bring out sister of battle plastics, i love the idea behind them but the models just...to put it plainly, suck. They've been around for ages and even the new ones are metal. Do any of you know or think they will bring out plastic sisters of battle?

As I understand it, only the most popular armies will receive plastics. I've heard nothing regarding Sisters plastics at all.

I did hear something about a combined Ordos book... Seems that there is some question as to whether it is better to release Ordo Xenos as a stand-alone, or just go ahead and combine all three with updated versions in a single volume.

If they do ever do Sisters in plastic I will be ALL OVER IT. I absolutely love the models and the playstyle of the army is fuckin sweet as can be. It is only the cost of the all metal army that prevents me from building them. That and the lack of conversion ease for them.

My sentiments, exactly!

Totally agree, however, I gave in and started them anyways. Conversion is not that bad, you just have to be creative and be a little more patient with getting the job done. Still plenty of chances for conversions especially on the canoness and vehicles, plus inquisitors are conversion slates...

It's a catch 22. They won't do it because not enought people play Witchunters. People don't play witch hunters because pewter models are more expensive.

Oh wow. I haven't even SEEN a DE player for a little under a year!

I would love SoB plastics...I have a couple thousand points of the Order of The Winged Angel, and it's ungodly expensive...but the ridiculous amounts of death my Sisters can deal out makes it worthwhile...I would say WH are the best army out there, but nobody plays them, so the rules never got nerfed.

Plastic sisters means that I could buy my girlfriend a box of battle sisters and not feel bad about breaking the bank on so few models.

From what I've heard, sisters are so detail that it would be hard, if not impossible, to reproduce in plastic. I could be completely wrong in this idea though.

I highly doubt that. Might have been true at one point but taking a look at the newest plastics (especially possessed chaos marines) makes me think that this most likely isn't the case any more.

Yeah, Wraith is right. There would be no trouble reproducing them in plastics. The only reason they aren't doing it is cause not enough people play SoB. Kind of Ironic really. They don't make them cause not enough play them. Not enough play them cause they're expensive metals only.

Come on. Tell me I'm wrong.

the reson they are plasic ( i saw this in a games workshop news artical) along with demon hunters is their is to much detail in the modles to make them plastic

however i agree that it's possibal now

they should be remade if theyre not in plasics but if theyre not then that is strange because i thought they were plastic or at least the normal ones were

this is jsut a rumor i've picked up as of late mind you!

witch hunters, deamon hunters and possibly zeno hunters (if they ever come out) are going to be put into one book...

if they're going to come out with plastics they'll most likely be after (if not the same time) as the book

I would love some SOB in plastic, but I would say this is going to be a way off. The metals are a real bitch to convert to Chaos sisters.
