Are they the most anticipated army that people will BUY or are Sisters of Battle (Adeptus Sororitas) just something people want around? Time wil tell but sadly I've never seen a Sisters army in a store being played or know of anyone who has fielded one. Seems troubling!
So Sisters are back and there's a tonne of re-releases, so much so it's curious to see that these aren't Made To Order, but as metal miniatures in the general range. So why not bring out the plastics? Maybe there aren't any!
Also next week is this cool resin miniature (right) which you may have seen as a John Blanche drawing. Away from Sisters, Index Imperialis Apocrypha looks great (and have been preordered already!), Codex Imperial Agents looks to bring a whole new force onto the board and the Tyrant of the Hollow Worlds rounds out the books.

Hell the Immolator could be a dual kit with the Adeptus Arbites crowd control vehicle - BOOM - awesome!
It's early days I know, but after some really smart releases in the past 4 months or so, this seems like a release right out of the bad old days of Games Workshop hurrying together a release and botching it up to then later get lost amongst newer releases or 'the new shiny'. I'm only concerned because this CAN work. This could be an popular army with great new minis, but it's starting to reek of Flesh Eater Courts to me.
Bring on plastic Sisters and plastic Adeptus Arbites, not these proxy placeholders...
