Model is now no longer available and she's not in the new Sisters list in the new Imperialis book.

The model isn't useless, as it can be a canoness or a sister superior, but it's a loss to the army.

BUT.....................the rumors persist of a new codex with plastic sisters in 2017. So she might show up there or as a "dataslate" at some point. I think this happened to Kharn.

AND....................I would have no problem with you using her in a "pick-up" game :!:

I also have three sections of 3 or 4 sections of trenches painted and made of hard plaster (I have no idea where I purchased them from, but I found them clear a section of my game vault (basement)) that I will be bringing as an IG fortification I am still looking for rules for them (I am SURE I saw them somewhere onlline).
Ok. I have to say, I am SOOOOO pumped about the new Imperial Agents codex - it includes detachments for Imperial Navy as well as the Inquisition! Add to that my new FULLY PAINTED Tempestus Scions army and painted "censured/sanctioned" Space Marine Chapter THE NAMELESS (still trying to post pictures of this Space Marine proxy army) it is looking HIGHLY doubtful that I will be bringing the Kreig army. The Emperor's Will will likely be enforced against the Chaos/Xenos Scum with:

- Inquisition Allied Detachment (the Inquisitor gets a Warlord Trait even if they are NOT your Warlord - WTF!!!)
- Imperial Navy Allied Attachment (Aeronautica - includes Forgeworld superheavy Maurauder Bomber)
- Tempest Scion Combined Arms Army (Gound Assault Formation)
- Space Marines Combined Arms Army (Custom chapter using the rules for the Executioners Chapter - includes Forgeworld Relic Leviathan Dreadnought Rules)
- Imperial Knight (Forgeworld Castigator Rules)

I think I can get this in at 4,000 points with 500 points in Superheavies.

Seems like GW Facebook and GW Customer Service disagree on whether or not the Sisters codex is still playable, and Celestine active or not. People got opposite responses from each on whether Imperial Agents obsoletes Sisters of Battle or not:

I can't remember the location where the post comments I read (possibly Faeit or BoLS), but the people spoke.......... as if the Grey Knight section of this book "DIDN'T REPLACE THE OLD CODEX :!: :!:
And the opinion was that this book was an add on to field small detachment/cad/formation/whatjamacallits to other armies, etc. In other words......NOT A REPLACEMENT :!: :!: :!:

I don't think anyone thought that C:IA replaced C:GK or C:DW. They just have certain units cherry-picked and dropped in.

It was C:Inq and C:AS (and to a lesser extent, C:LotD) that were the focus of the debate. All three were ebook-only, and this is the first print version if their rules after multiple Editions. All three had their entire list "updated" and spliced into the new book. Typically when an entire list is reprinted like this, the old version is invalidated. Like when Sisters went ebook-only in the first place.

I think the intention may have been to drop the old versions, but with all the backlash - pre-release backlash, even - they may have reconsidered. Hence, the confusion between the two faces of GW.

Well, I have downloaded the enemy and it's not as bad as it was made out to be. Celestine is gone but you can still have an eviscerator canoness with eternal warrior. If anything else changed, the changes are buried. Deep.

Based on what they did with the battle conclave, which is still there in all of its former glory as a formation made up of four dataslates that must be one unit on the tabletop, we should all prepare for the end of the CAD in 8th edition.

The Aeronautica faction is humorous. I have to check the FAQ to see how allied units deploy, but I don't think a spare valkyrie helps much if it is empty.

And deathwatch are OP.

Additional thought while I am at it: the Sisters sculpts are pretty amazing.
