There are new Sisters of Battle?!

Those are the old figures at new prices.  Yes, that is a Retributor squad of five heavy weapon troops selling for £43:

Well, like a Finnish saying goes more or less, it's not stupid to ask [for a high price], but it's stupid to pay [a high price].

 lol

When I sold my GW stuff, I was getting obviously less than retail for new in box stuff, but it was still more than I paid - because of time! Thanks, GW! You make the secondary market worthwhile.

I bought a pile of LotR figures in metal a few years back, when eBayers were having trouble shifting them for £1.

Now... :o

Nearly £9 for a Heavy Weapons Sister is not nearly as outrageous as £18 for the new plastic SM commander......

How do kids, or even adults, afford this stuff any more?

Anyone know a similar looking miniatures i've been looking for some for a game of in the emperors name.

Mega Miniatures used to stock some "Shock Sisters" that look a lot like the Sororitas shown in the back of the Rogue Trader rulebook, but I dont know who they sold the moulds to recently.  Im sure that Johnny at Mega Miniatures will supply you with that info if you mail him.  The miniatures were originally part of the Demonblade line I think.


Excalibur miniatures sell a few slender armoured, tooled up nuns like this:


Eureka make some unarmoured nuns-with-guns.

Foundry make a nice spec ops nun called Sister Wendy (IIRC).  Reaper make a couple of armed nuns.

I now return this thread to its usual format.  Howls of outrage may resume schedule in five, four, three...

Oh hang on, I almost forgot: has there been any news on the rumoured Inquisitor themed box set release (codenamed "Innocence"?).  I played Inquisitor themed games of 7TV all weekend and I am really hoping that the rumoured set materialises.

If thats the quality choice of other space nuns, no wonder GW is raking the cash!
