Games Workshop have rereleased their range of 40K Sisters of Battle vehicles and metal miniatures to their online store.

Sisters of Battle

From their announcement:

The Sisters of Battle, an elite Sisterhood of warriors, possess a fanatical devotion to the Emperor, and this month, their faith has certainly been rewarded. Not only has part one of the new Sisters of Battle Codex been published in White Dwarf, but they now have their own section on games-workshop.com. It’s never been easier to buy the entire range of Sisters of Battle models.

Whether you’re looking to start a new Sisters of Battle army, or wanting to add to your existing one, games-workshop.com has the full range of miniatures available to you. Head on over now to see the Sisterhood in all its glory.

    This could have been an easy use to selloff product that had not moved in years. However they have ZERO boxed sets for troops or other units only blisters. Put them together in groups or a Troops pack of blisters. That way someone who is new could make out what they need to buy. Have a battleforce like bulk purchase discount or similiar deal. This once again moves product that probably has not moved in a long, long time. Otherwise it will still be like the other specialist games; too high to try it out and will therefore set on the shelf.

    Sorry about the format

  • I understand that there is a new range of minis coming out soon…so why do GW have to bother?

    Just re-release the old stuff, don’t do boxed sets because it will mean a whole new re-design prior to the new stuff replacing it…

    • Klaetch

      Inso, I hope you’re right saying there’s a new range coming out, but what makes you think that? GW haven’t got a fantastic history of supporting “fringe” armies.

        Check the SoB thread on Warseer. Supposedly there is a new plastic squad that can make 5 regular sisters or 5 seraphim, a box of 10 plastic repentia, a plastic penitent engine, and lastly, (the really bizarre rumor,) a plastic priest kit.

        • cybogoblin

          Only 5 regular Sisters? Why not 10? I could kind of understand it with Grey Knights as they’re a little more elite than your average Marine. I don’t recall the same being true with the Sisters.

          This is like reducing Warhammer unit boxes to 10 models, then bringing in the Hordes rule. Madness.

    Another nice little flip of the bird from GW to my LGS.

  • RatBot

    “Never been easier”, eh? How about when I could walk into my FLGS and pick up a box of 10 Sisters for $35? You know, instead of having to buy four packs of three Sisters for $17 a pack, a Special Weapon Sister for $10, a Heavy Weapon Sister for $14, and a Sister Superior for $12, totaling over $70 a squad. I’d tell GW where to stick it, but that’s probably against this site’s rules. Suffice it to say, I’m glad I gave up on GW months ago.

    • RatBot

      Oh, and that $35 is before whatever discount my FLGS applies. Not to mention… you know, the entire range of Sisters models, and if they didn’t have it, they could order it.

  • KelRiever

    Buy direct from EBay? Well, all right! 😉

    • Try doing that in Australia!!!

  • Kolonel K

    $29 Aus for 3 basic troopers in metal that are how old now? What a joke.

  • Gannon

    It does look like they’re trying to clear old stock. Did anyone else notice it’s metals not failco$t?

    • Zac

      It does look like they’re trying to clear old stock.

      That is certainly the impression I got. Possibly offering up the last of the metal figures before releasing the plastic figures. That is the only thing that makes any sense. They want to clear stock prior to the new releases so they aren’t stuck with a pile of metal figures that they can no longer melt down to make new releases

      • Klaetch

        With that in mind, things are only going to get tougher in the future, with metal being the only reusable resource they deal (or dealt) in.
