I'm still confused as to why McF hasn't put out an un-helmeted Sister yet. I won't be buying anymore Sisters until I can see their super babe faces and white-silver doos.
If they do helmetless versions, I hope they do unique heads and don't just repaint one head a few times.

Okay, I believe this variant would have sold well in the usual quantities. It probably would have sold better than the non variant. I don't think this was a smart marketing decision.

Nah, Order of Our Martyred Lady is the superior faction in the lore and the more iconic paint deco.

"Of all the Orders Militant, there are none more numerous or more widely spread than the Order of Our Martyred Lady. Their name is known by the ruling elites and unwashed masses alike on countless worlds across the galaxy, and when spoken evokes hope in the righteous and fear amongst the faithless."

This figure would be slamming if it had the maroon tabard and sleeves that is sometimes uses instead of the black. As is, she just came out looking like another blank.

I'm gonna dirty and rust mine up a bit and come up with a role for her to be a guest specialist in my platoon, but Order Of Our Martyred Lady and St. Katherine for life. Ride or die!

Looks cool, but I’m just not a fan of “chase” variants. Doesn’t that mean it will be mixed in with the regular version and people who want it will have to search through stores in person? Why not just make it a different figure that I can preorder online?

Ya this chase crap is getting out of hand now.
Love Mac’s figures but not at $60 plus or more.

No more chase figures Todd. The 90s are over bro.

Yeah, I really like the deco, but I have enough trouble finding Warhammer figures in store at all. Not happy about chases. If they are going to do them, I'd prefer that they keep it to silly stuff like bronzed/gold figures like they started with in the DC line.

Nah, I would have to disagree. Fans want them all and making this one a chase was not very smart. Besides the colors itself would have sold the figure.

Purely as a fan, I disagree.

I think it's a horrid representation of that colourway. Way too flat.

I understand being frustrated by chases, though.

I guess it really doesn't matter though. There will be only be about 3,000 of us fans who will even be lucky enough to find one.

I was watching this thread, and was inspired to dig out the Ultramarine from my box of so so toys.

With a basic black wash + minor highlights with a Gundam marker, this figure is beautiful!

and trimmed one ribbing from the pelvis, greatly improving his leg forward movement.

Completely fell in love with a figure i thought was just ho-hum.

Ordered a few more of these blue guys.

Where did you order more of them from? I didn’t think they were really in stock any more
