The last I recall seeing anything new for Sisters of Battle was last year, and the Repressor links I had thought were dead and gone. It seems there is now an update, and I've been told that they just went live yesterday, although I am having a hard time finding out anything official on it. 

Here is the latest bit of updates on the Sisters of Battle Repressor

via a reader from the Faeit 212 inbox
I was wanting to give you a heads up that of all things to get an update the largely outdated repressor for the sisters of battle got an update from forgeworld today.  Big change to note is it is now AV 13 on the front.  Almost everything else is retained, save the searchlights and is now 75 points instead of 50.  Thought this might possibly point to a future update for sisters in the near future.  The PDF is up on their site here here:

  2. Welcome back Natfka.

    Not sure that is an improvement on the Repressor, one of the big reasons for taking it, I thought, was the extra fire points, similar to a Chimera.

    1. Yeah, where are the fire points? No fire points -and- +50% point cost increase..? There goes one of the few good things sisters had left.

  3. The PDF itself is dated from last year, could be a sign of Sisters stuff getting worked on in the background somewhere...

  4. if its not fast then the whole point of it is pretty sad. Flamer template has < 8", you have to move up to 6" so you have a awesome flaming range of 13-14" Vehicle can't overwatch.

    If it would have torrent special rule i would say amazing, without it...its just plain bad choice.

    1. What the Sisters need (considering GW has not cast anything metal for a while and wants to phase out Finecast in new releases too):

      Plastic Command Squad (to avoid finecasting all the specialists)
      Plastic Battle Sisters/Celestians/Retributors
      Plastic Seraphim/Dominions
      Plastic Repentia (will end up finecasted anyway)
      Plastic Frateris Militia (if we even get this, will probably be finecast Redemptionists if even that)
      Plastic Dual-Kit New Infantry Unit
      Recut Immolator/Repressor
      Recut Exorcist/some other, maybe AA vehicle
      Plastic/Finecast Penintent Engine
      Plastic Flyer (steal Avenger from FW)
      Plastic generic Canoness
      Plastic generic Priest
      Finecast characters (St. Celestine, Kyrinov, Jacobus, maybe some "new" ones likes St. Praxedes, Helena, and Helfire from 2ed Codex)

      Now, if they have production difficulties even with modest releases with only a couple of infantry boxes, a vehicle, a flyer and a few Finecast characters, the above list will be impossible to meet in one or even two waves. Considering the panic buying of metal models after Specialist Games figures started running out, GW will probably hastily convert as much of the existing line into Finecast as an interim measure, if they want to keep the Sisters as an army at all that is.

  8. it lost the ability to fire 6 bolters + a hw weapon which sucks. It also lost it's ap 2 storm bolter ammo and ability to make it's flamer cause moral checks. :\ Not sure how I feel about the raise in points for the major nerf it received.

  9. Well, I never saw the old rules, but an AV13 transport with a 6++ for 75 points seems pretty fair to me.

    1. for 70 pts you could make the storm bolter AP 2, the heavy flamer caused a moral check every time it caused a unsaved wound. It had 6 bolter fire points + 1 your choice fire point. Under the old rules.

  10. Given the greatly reduced Tau anti-tank (specifically AV13-14) and the greatly increased Tau presence, I think AV13 is a huge improvement. The vehicle is entirely different, but that's not a bad thing, it's been retooled from a gun boat to a super survivable troop transport (it's the Sister's devilfish)

  12. You know why I took the rhino for my sisters? they were 35 points a piece. I don't want 75 point repressors for what they give us. Thank god I didn't buy the couple I was gonna use.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Anyone else wonder if the 'update' is an attempt to discourage people buying the repressor as Sisters are closer to rerelease than we think?

    Or maybe all this secrecy is making me paranoid when it comes to what's coming...
