/tg/, I'm geting into the Sisters of Battle. I've heard they have a 'main' 500-point and 1000-point army that people agree is their best, but I can't find it through Google. Could I please get it posted for me?

Celestine and a squad of Seraphim are usually considered mandatory. As is Jacobs for the faith points reroll and battle conclave unlocking.

Personally i don't use Jacobs, but most who do put him with a squad of mixed death cult and crusader, and it makes a good blender squad. Usually modeling the death cultists with one power axe and one power sword, so they can adjust the type of power weapon attack according to the target.

Exorcists are mandatory, at least 2. Most people like running a Retributor squad with four heavy bolters as the third heavy choice. Usually put with with that 100 point wall and quadfire cannon for AA and rending when the faith roll kicks off. Some like running 3 exorcists. Some nutters run penitent engines, but your mileage may vary with those.

Two or more Dominion squads are very popular and useful, usually with melta's and an Immolator because the transport can scout along with them.

Celestian squads are a waste of points usually.
Most consider mechanized armies dead, but most still grab rhinos with the troop squads to help survivability and give your opponent something else to fire their anti armor at besides your exorcists.

Allies are helpful to help out with long range firepower and/or close combat.

I don't know where it was originally from, but I was under the impression that there was some argument whether this was a Sister called Kearys or Evelyn.

And I don't particularly care to know. I have her saved as "Kearys", I wrote a fic using the same name, and I'm sticking to it because the original source probably isn't something I'd enjoy reading anyway.

Has ANYTHING on that list been released yet? Unless you want to wait till 2014/2015 i'd so go ahead with the with the metal models.

Besides, that way if plastic sisters are ever released, you can be all hipster and say 'i had sisters before they were cool' and such.

I'm sensing a new codex release here, what with two named characters and apparently an entirely new fast attack option.

Also:

they got the name of a unknow antogonist that wasnt in the book right so i will say it can be legit.

Admittedly it was Bolg in the book, who was the son of Azog. But still, it's possible someone was watching the production video blog.

Just not likely.

One (weak) troops option. Mostly terrible elite options. Hit-or-miss heavies. Brutalized unique vehicle options. The only things redeeming about them are Exorcists, their Fast Attack choices, and (some of) their HQs.

Also, scouting multi-meltas.

No dont take it like that ,ofcourse you are going to make changes according to the opponent in order to not get crushed by OP kill all lists.
The problem is making an exact counter that will only work against that specific army with that specific units and strategies.

for example if you know opponent is going to get melee orks and tailior your army to include flamers and flamer tanks everywhere that is not very cool and wont be very much fun to the other side now would it be?

Okay that's a fair point. I'm not the other poster btw, they mad.

So If you had a lots of Terminators and you saw that I had 6 plasma guns in my 2 veteran squad from across the table, would you feel that this would be an appropriate preparation on my part and a tactical challenge what for you, or overkill and unsportsmanly?

Sorry for my poor english!

Some people have a huge hard-on for being able to take on every army with that one list and they try to impose that line on thinking on everyone else.

My opinion is that if you know what you're going to fight against beforehand, it's only sensible to field troops that are more suited for taking on that army. Your opponent can do the same, so it's not in any way unfair.

Tweaking your list prior to a game once you've seen what your opponent is fielding is, however, faggy.

>>22341008
Some people do. But if he has a boner for terminators and uses them a lot, isn't it really on him for being predictable? I mean, invoking some gentleman's honor there is a bit bullshit since you know the guy likes to field terminators, so being honorbound not to exploit that knowledge effectively means limiting out the means to counter the guy's army. It's reverse cheating.
