Plastic SoB next year? I am so hyped. Next year I am finally going to get to build that SoB army that I have been wanting and that makes me happy or least as much as doing something that makes me spend money can.

Blood Angels
Dark Angels

Somethings never change.

It was already broken when I got here.

SISTERS!!! Wooh! good news to wake up to.

Alright wishlist:
- More flexible lore, so that we aren't as restricted with making up an orders background or appearance (I want caped sisters).
- Termie canonesses. If inquisitors can wear it why not Soroitas? Their whole thing is that they're rich enough to pay for power-armor in greater numbers than marines.
- Bikers. Should be obvious really.
- Scout sisters.
- More design variety in armor-class. Dominions should be fast and nimble looking like Reivers. Retributers should be big and heavy looking.

Chapter Approved 2018 will contain beta rules for Sisters of Battle, so you'll find out later this year if you got your wishes!

Also I think it was mentioned that the combat roster app will be power levels only for now, unfortunately.

The Terminator Canoness is probably not happening lol, but I feel like the other stuff ain't too unreasonable.

Power level combat roster seems pointless though, I don't think anyone has trouble adding that stuff up.

Cut your umbilical cord and put your pocket computer down. You'll be able to easily calculate matched play points, too with a pencil and pad of paper.

Doesn't mean a digital companion for it isn't useful.

Oh yeah, it's also free.
Armies:
40k: Knights Cynosure Iron Hands successor chapter, House Terryn Questor Imperialis, Thousand Sons/Tzeentch Daemons
30k: Thousand Sons
Age of Sigmar: Sylvaneth, Disciples of Tzeentch

Honestly i'll probably just stick with battlescribe until the official GW one has a matched play option for points. Battlescribe occasionally has errors for new releases, but they're usually corrected within a few days.

Going a bit off-topic here but is there anything that explicitly states there can't be women in the Primaris ranks?

The fact that Primaris Marines are Marines. Thus, males only.

There are a couple of different reasons. Firstly, sisters of Battle are not space marines. They are not enhanced humans , they are just girls in power armour. In order to become an space marine they must be male because the zygotes for the process of making space marines are keyed to male hormones and tissue types. That's from lexicanum.
Other, less absolute, answers are that all the primarchs are male, and space marines are made directly from their geneseed. Additionally, the emperor made only male primarchs and space marines, so to create females ones would be to go against the Emperor's will. Since the imperium adheres fanatically to tradition, deviating from tradition would likely be a death sentence, unless someone in absolute power was the one to do it (like when guilliman created the primaris marines).

Of course, Games workshop has a habit of shoehorning in whatever they want to the lore, like they did with primaris marines, so it's entirely possible that they could say "oh yeah guilliman and cawl found a way to make it work on girls too!"

I meant for Primaris Marines, not sisters. I don't want genetically modified sisters, the whole piint is that they're normal human.

Ahh sorry I misunderstood, I thought you were looking for female primaris to put into a sisters army. But yeah the rest of the points are still relevant.
