It’s an internet campaign consisting of, well, just me at the moment. It’s eventual goal is pretty simple; play Sisters of Battle in sixth edition.
It’s not the most inventive campaign and it has no warm-and-fuzzy-greater-good feel (that’s the goal of the Black Crusade chaity event, get on it now!). This is just a get Ratboy to play Warhammer 40000 using his Sisters of Battle army and maybe even grow it a bit.
The current goal is a workable 1500 point Sisters of Battle army, for regular gaming and working towards tournament play. Also, enthusiasm rises this morning with this news:

I thought I would drop a small update on what I know.
Anyway, here goes:
On the HQ side we are getting a re-sculpt of the Arch-Confessor in finecast, and finecast versions of everyones favorite angel.
There is a new finecast cannonness model that comes with several hand options. As mentioned before there is a mini box of a priest in plastic.
There are also four new HQ choices, all in finecast. I did not get to see them put together, only on the sprue, so their poses and overall how good they look is hard to tell. One was of some sort of priest guy with a massive ornate chainsaw sword (The chainsaw blade goes down both sides). Another one was a sister (Cannonness?) with a jump pack and a respirator as well as two flammer pistols. The model is quiet tall as she has some sort of robe thing the goes down to the base, holding her aloft. I personally think long robes make no sense when you are using a jetpack, but hey, maybe its fireproof. It is the future after all. The last one is a sister/cannonness in a casual pose with a combimelta.
The sisters repenta are getting re-sculpted (and are less nekkid though still not armored), but will be finecast, not plastic. Apparently repenting also requires you to shave your head.
There will be a total of three new plastic boxes with which I am told the player can make seven possible units out of for the infantry types.
The penitent engine box also apparently makes two different units, though I suppose they will both be large walking murder machines. One is a large murder machine that is really good at melta/flaming things but can also chop stuff up, the other is really good at chopping stuff up, but can also flammer/melta things.
The rhino kit makes the four sisters rhino based vehicles. Well, five if you count the rhino itself I suppose. Several new vehicles actually. I just could not tell what some were supposed to be because they were still on the sprue. So I dont want to speculate.
I mean vehicles other then the rhino with some stuff on top type vehicles. They have the rhino set, the sinner killer robot set, and two other sets. That I know of.
Oh, sisters are getting plasma guns and plasma cannons, and so is one of their tanks. Well, the cannon.
But when you buy your new sisters models, whenever they come out (I don’t know when that will be, no), look at the copywrite stamp. They have been done for a while now.

It’s an internet rumour, so read into it what you will. It’s widely known that Jes Goodwin had designed plastic Sisters of Battle years ago and the project got canned. There’s a fair chance that there is truth behind the above rumour. JOY!!
Everybody shout it with me, “Sisters for Sixth!!”
