Activists predictably butthurt.

And nobody cared except for the usual idpol jagoffs.

Jeebus. Even the most hardcore dudebro 40k fans agreed the Sisters of Battle got treated badly and were happy they got a chance to shine in the latest edition.

But having a viable fem-heavy faction just isn't enough for the wokeists. Nothing is ever enough.

BoxCrayonTales:
I think an easy way to address this is to say that women who survive the process become indistinguishable from those born male. Because it’s more efficient to use a single template. So any of the space marine models could be women, but you’d never be able to tell.

Or you could switch to One Page Rules Grimdark Future, which has the Battle Sisters army. They’re female space marines created by the Goddess-Queen in response to the God-King disallowing women from serving. (This reads like a satire of fandom debates btw.) https://onepagerules.fandom.com/wiki/Battle_Sisters

The more important thing to remember is that Squats were still around during thr HH, right? Do they get a mention?

They got brought back as “Leagues of Votaan” in modern 40k
