New Sisters
« on: May 6, 2021, 01:42:09 PM »
How do people feel about the new Sisters models? I thought they were cool, but I've noticed plenty of folks are ambivalent or negative to some of them. I can certainly see how the exo-suit things aren't what people want, even if I personally think they're neat.

EDIT: Pardon if this should go into the Inquisition section, or even news, I dunno.

I think they all look pretty cool! The Paragon Armor is especially neat, though seeing their little human arms sticking out of the chest is a little weird (you'd think they'd want to armor that amphetamine parrot).

Folks who post online tend to be pretty cynical and jaded and hate everything gw does. Just look at DakkaDakka.

I think they look really cool.

I they pulled it off better than with the Dreadknight or those Centurions, both of which really just look goofy to me (and seem to conceptually overlap with other, previously established units, like Dreadnoughts and Terminators, a problem the Sisters don't really have.)

I think Centurions look great, as it happens. The concept is weird (power armor for your power armor!) but the execution is good. The models look fantastic in person.

The Dreadknight, yeah--same issue. But that was worse, because the whole thing looked like a baby bjorn.

Anyway, I have no issues with the line overall. I think the banner bearer model they just revealed is a tidbit plain, but otherwise no complaints!

I'm looking forward to them.  I do like the look of the Paragon suits.  I get some people aren't happy with the exposed arms but I'm sure it's a homage to Ripley in the Power Loader from Aliens, which makes it cool in my book.

I think it's cool to see the range expanded, not just modernized, I've always been fond of the Sisters' overall design.

These previews have me seriously considering starting a sisters army.

Then all I'll need is guard and mechanicus to have the full imperial set lol

Im really happy with most of them. The least is the banner chick and missionary for me but will come in time. The celestians im happy for but the shields will need major attention to look good but the unit will now fill their roll as body guards better i think. The paragon, oh ya! 8)
