Sup /tg/.

Word on the street is that Sisters of Battle might be getting cavalry/bikes/jetbikes in their next codex.

discuss.

>> No.13492870

I don't really care I just know 40k from the dawn of war games.

>> No.13492877

Glory glory to the redeemer!

>> No.13492885

Yeah, that'd be neat. Jetbikes would be the coolest of those options.

>> No.13492918

Would be stupid fluffwise as the only imperial jetbike is owned by the Dark Angels

Which in turn was stupid fluff in the first place.

>> No.13492963

Biker sisters, im ok with that.

>> No.13492965

I have an old 1st ed tech priest mini on a jetbike (also an imperial guard land speeder with a plasma).

but yeah, sure if it's on a special character or such but as a troop choise, nah, let them space elves have their jetbike troopers.

1st ed, when space marines were human mercenaries in power armor.

>> No.13493003

>>13492982
T3, and power armor 4+ armor save marines, ho!

>> No.13493029

we haven't had them ever in any incarnation, we don't need them for our preferred style of battle, and I've seen and heard nothing on the topic.

I'm suspecting hte OP is full of shit.

that said, the Sisters already have a very effective cavalry force in the Seraphim, and unless these mythical bikers provide some kind of benefit better than a free Faithful unit that grants bonus LD there's no reason to field them.

The bonus T isn't really helpful except in CC, where they shouldn't be. The only special weapon that they could get that Seras don't have is the Stormbolter, and it's redundant with combi-bolters on the bikes.
Likewise, bike-mounted heavy weapons = Multi-meltas, all the time, every bike, since Heavy flamers are cheaper and more effective on Immolators, and Heavy Bolters are more useful in the gunline.
Mobility is a non-issue: both units move at teh same speed.
The extended bolter range is kind of nice, but the unit loses the LD bonus and, almost certainly, Faithful status along with the Melta Bomb upgrade and the bonus CC weapons of the Seras.

who's to say the STC was recently re found, or the forge world that made them recently returned to imperial control

>> No.13493057

If by 'word on the street' you mean 'sisters like their rides', which could mean anything.

>> No.13493058

oh and I forgot, dual wielding plasma-pistol (but generally bolt pistols) imperial guards men with jump packs (guess that got passed on to them ladies).

>> No.13493084

>>13493051
it's not a matter of if they have access to it or not rather if it suits a army list (which never is a compleat or accurate example of the full fluff of a faction).

there's no real reason to hand over the realm of space elves army lists.. but, wth, GW have pulled crazy shit out of their ass befor (Hi ho wolf riders!)

>> No.13493134

Cavalry?

Joan of Arc in my 40k? Feels good, man.
