OK, it seems that the pic from a playtest codex is flowing freely through forums now, so here it is. Take it as you will, an April fools joke or not?. Seeing more troop choices and a new transport vehicle is pretty exciting. (Scroll down for the pics from a playtest codex)

For those of you that do not know what a Repressor is, here is a pic of one from Forgeworld. It is basically a rhino chasis with AV11 front and side, AV10 in the rear. It has a transport capacity of 10, with 6 of its passengers able to fire their basic weapon from the fire points on the sides, with 1 std fire point on the top. The tank has a BS4 and is equiped with a Heavy Flamer and storm bolter and comes with some basic Sisters of Battle Upgrades (no gun swaps listed). Repressor information is from forgeworld.

  3. If this is not a joke...Then I cant wait. But will the wife let me collect another army, after How Much I wanted the Dark eldar?

  4. Thanks for sharing. Could be cool. It would seem an odd practical joke if it is... it's not like the pages claim that SoB will be anything crazy. I'd expect a joke leak to let slip that SoB will have special powers dependent on the time of month or some such silly-nes.

  5. Eh if this wasn't so close to April 1 I would buy, especially after the Dark Eldar April fools from last year which was started 2 weeks before April 1.

  6. 10 points each for a 3+ armoured model with a bolter? That's a sweet deal. For what it costs me for a 10 man tac squad and special weapons you could be running a 20 woman hoarde with meltaguns.

    They'd make a mean gun line.

  8. If it's not April Fool's, then the Arbites would be motivation for plastic stormtroopers/arbites (and would explain why plastic stormies have yet to be seen)

  9. @Red - they are only 11 points in the Witch Hunters Codex, so a slight decrease wouldn't be too shocking.

  10. It's really been due time for the Sisters to get some loving. Hopefully this isn't some cruel joke...

  11. No more H.flamers on the troop at least.......

  12. Sweet. I already have some arbites with shotguns that I was running as stormtroopers in my old army. At least they won't be useless when the new book comes out. I hope.

  13. so how come you could post these leaks but not the grey knight playtest - codex?

  14. It has to do with a lot of things. This one was tricky since I am not a legal expert, so I look to others on something like this. A couple of things....

    1.Other sites and forums already had them up. Some have since taken them down. I had decided right away when I had found the pages, to not post them, however found that they were already on every forum and many sites half a day later.

    2. The release was only a couple pages. 1 at first. The Grey Knight leak was more than a couple pages, and included the entirety of the army listings.

    3. The chances these are real is about 50-50. Since the other sites are all at a complete loss on whether they are trouble or not, no one really knows what to do with them.

    They could still be removed if I think or find that they violate any laws.

  15. Maybe just a taste to stir things up a bit. The rumor is old now, but it was supposed to be Grey Knights around the Ides of March, Sisters later in the summer and Necrons (or Vampire from the fantasy side) for Halloween. IMO, plenty of evidence that some of this stuff is already done and in the bag, but GW is playing marketing games.

  16. I started playing with Sisters of Battle about 10 years ago when the guys at work talked me into playing. As the only female in the shop I said "only if I can play an all female army!" I've been hooked since with the storyline and the flaming weapons! I'm excited to have the prospect of something new!

  17. JasmyneW, its great you have stuck to your guns with Sisters of Battle. There is a lot of updated information about Sisters of Battle since this post.

    You can locate them easily by clicking on Sisters of Battle link at the bottom of the article.

  18. now that the white dwarf this probably moslty obsolete. I really hope redemptionists get cut...new plastics for them would seem like a waste IMO
