[ERROR] No.22204892 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

So Saint Celestine is often depicted with wings... "Wings of Faith" if memory serves. What exactly are these? Can't be actual wings growing out of her back, as that'd make her a mutant, so is it a piece of equipment like a jump pack? Is it a psyker power? Or is it just a manifestation of the Big E's will?

Also, how would /tg/ go about adding a set to a fluffy "totally-not-Celestine" living saint?

>> No.22204914

The model actually has no wings. So those wings aren't her jump pack.

I would imagine that they're basically a Warp manifestation - a magnificent living radiance born out of the raw convergent belief of the SoB.

I guess it should also be noted that, while Celestine was originally supposed to have a jump pack, further fluff on her and other 'living saints' seems to indicate that it's in fact the wings doing the flying. I would imagine that the jump pack has been entirely written out at this point.

Sisters of Silence are actually rather easy to convert.

With the White Dwarf codex they have pretty much one viable list that goes along the lines of

1-2 squads of Seraphim with inferno pistols/flamers

1-2 squads of Retributors with Heavy Bolters

>nope.avi thanks to flyhammer 40k the 6th ed is your vehicles will be a joek and death traps.
mechanizing sister squads is only if you necessarily need a troop choice to zoom ahead.

mechanizing Dominions is for Immolators and their weaponry

Apart from that....a list quite similar to the one I posted there was doing pretty good at some tournaments according to a few other SoB threads we had. I don't remember the exact list, but it didn't stray much from the frame I posted.

>> No.22205969

While that's not the exact set up, what he's listed did very well in two major tournaments.

What you fail to realize is that all-rounder lists do very well in tournaments when facing off against a majority of armies that have been tailored for flyers.

>> No.22206272

Well, I did some digging and found a passage that describes the Wings of Faith:
>"The wings confer the same effects as a jump pack, and allow Celestine to make use of the Hit and Run rule described in the Seraphim armylist entry."

So it seems the wings themselves are doing the lifting, and NOT a jump pack, and they don't seem to be integral to the Armor of Saint Katherine. I'd be tempted to call them a literal manifestation of faith.

So I'm probably going to cut the jets off a marine backpack and mount a set of eagle wing bits to it.

Strong psykers can ignore the powers of pariahs like Sisters of Silence.

In one Horus Heresy story (the Voice in Tales of Heresy) a psyker communion has telepathic communication that is strong enough to be heard by Sisters of Silence.

Further, one Sister of Silence meets her future self who has been deprived of her null abilities and made a psyker using some unknown process who warns her about the future being terrible. She actually describes the "present" 40k but no one in Heresy Era believes her.
