I think that'd take away from the present living saints a bit. They're meant to be quite special.

It should be so. The whole chamber militant thing was 3e brainfart when they couldn't invent anything else. In RT Sisters were like religious commissars spread across the Imperium, in 2e codex it says one of the tasks of the witch hunters was to police the Ecclesiarchy (so Sisters working with them is like cops working with internal affairs) and there was nothing Inquisitorial in the codex, and the current WD codex has dropped everything Inquisition related as well.

If you ask me, we'll get Codex: Sisters of Battle with Ecclesiarchy playing second fiddle. Sisters of various forms, frateris militia, priests and confessors, maybe even cardinals, faith powers all over the place, relics and fancy arcane tech, penitent engines will be MCs, probably some flyer with incendiary and/or psyk-out bombs and lots of dakka, immolator and maybe a rolling battle church land raider variant with flamers, meltas and 20 model carrying capacity.

As it's an awesome SoB thread, this video is obligatory.


It's that fucking mouth. It's a black hole no matter how you paint it.

I like this theory. Could be that the SoB are faithing so hard, that they're actually getting through to the part of the Emperor that's in the warp and recieving help from it.

It's also very easy to see Living Saints and The Sanguinor as "Daemon Princes" of the Emperor.

I don't mind them being the chamber militant of the Ordo Hereticus, it makes sense. Of coure the Hereticus are going to ask the army that specialises in fighting heretics for help.

But yeah, it should very much be secondary to their status as the army of the Ecclesiarchy.

>I don't mind them being the chamber militant

No, but you can deploy just about any force to fight heretics, from Guard to Marines. Same with aliens. Deathwatch is just a more specialized force that seems to use more their knowledge and tactics vs. aliens than their actual combat prowess, which probably isn't any better than the average Marine. Grey Knights, however, are a different thing in that very few things can actually go toe to toe with daemons and survive with their bodies and minds intact. There's been even Marine chapters that suffer from the effects of fighting daemons and forces of Chaos, and have had to be mind-wiped, even purged. Aliens and other humans are easy to fight, but how do you fight something that's not of this world and can twist reality to its will?

That's why I think Ordo Malleus, above all other Ordos, needs a chamber militant the most. Others can utilize any Imperial fighting force as they see fit.

> That's why I think Ordo Malleus, above all other Ordos, needs a chamber militant the most. Others can utilize any Imperial fighting force as they see fit.
Of course, the Inquisiton's whole schtick is that they can requistion (or at least request) anybody they need to. But if the Hereticus has access to some SoB and needs to purge some heretics, then of course the SoB are going to be the preferred ally.

Ah okay, Thanks man. That codex comp should prove to be very useful

Get what you want.
If they're dropped, you've got minis that prove seniority and command respect for whatever you proxy them as.

If they're continued, you've got minis that prove seniority and command respect as well as a start on what will most likely be the next OP army (because let's face it, everyone is OP or at least respectable when their new book comes out).

Simple paintjob, and greenstuff wheels of Chaos.

You'd command respect with it too.

Guess if they dropped the sisters they'd all have to go somewhere so Chaos sisters kinda make sense.

Eh, Sisters would just disappear into the fluff and never be mentioned again.

Like Tilea.

Not if you're using them with scouting Dominions and putting multi-metlas on them.

Though they're a bit crippled by their transport capacity of six.

What about Repressors? Seraphims?
I'm hunting eBay for things. Just need to know what NOT to buy.

>> No.25735547

Repressors are good, they're more or less an upgraded Rhino.

Seraphims are amazing. They'll wipe out hordes like nothing else. Check out their abilities and loadout in the codex PDF.

For what not to get:

Repentias should probably be avoided, at least at first.

Command Squads (Dialogus and Hospillars) also aren't really that useful.

The Canoness is outclassed by special characters, but it's a cool model and one of the few generic HQ choices. Take one if you really want to.

Priests/missionaries are more or less useless.

Penitent Engines are usually not that great, and the model is apparently tricky.

And that's about it model-wise. Don't feel like you absolutely cannot take any of this stuff ever, some SoB players have made them work in certain situations. But since you're new to the army, you should avoid them at first.

Perfect, thank you!

Do the Orks have a name for them, like how the Marines are Beakies, the Eldar are Cone'eads/Pansies, the Necrons are Tinnies, the Tau Grey Skins etc?

>> No.25736078

Don't think so, but Gorgutz hilariously thinks that they're quite Orky if he beats their stronghold in Soulstorm. He notes that they are "as burny as his burniest boyz" and compares their crusades to Ork WAAAGHs.

So let's think of an Orky name for Sisters. Shouties, maybe? Burna Humies? I'm sure somebody can top those.

That's fine as long as you don't call them fallen SoB and just call them cultists that happen to look like SoB.

Way too many lore-breaking non-Miriael Chaos SoB armies and other retarded impossible custom armies.

Though I like the way the current Acts work (very streamlined, always works on a 4+ or better), they need to bring back army wide Acts and revamp how you generate them (the d6 thing is just bad).

I'd like to see the Sarissa come back (perhaps giving them furious charge? or an AP in assault?).

Would anyone be adverse to Sisters Repentia acting like hidden squad upgrade characters, like Dark Elf assassins in fantasy? Perhaps if you take a unit of them you can peel them off and add them to Sisters squads?

There are two things the Sisters need added to the army itself: Redemptionist Cult and Frateris Militia

Perhaps Confessors could be upgraded to Redemption cult leaders?

Personally, I'd like to see the return of Ordo Hereticus units; but I'm worried about taking the focus away from the Sisters, who really deserve to be the core of their own army (they are one of the oldest factions in the game, being mentioned in the original RT rulebook).

On another note, as much as I hate how GW has been blatantly abusing their own rules system to sell more models by making the Riptide, Dreadknight, and Wraithknight Monstrous Creatures (because Walkers suck and wouldn't sell as well), I have to admit that turning Penitent Engines into Monstrous Critters would do nothing but improve them.

Would adding Arbites to the army be blasphemy? Perhaps a rapid response "SWAT" team w/ riot shields as a fast attack choice?

>> No.25739541

Necromunda House Escher models are the perfect Slaaneshi cultists and you know it.

> Though I like the way the current Acts work (very streamlined, always works on a 4+ or better)
3+, if you've got a Superior, at least one casualty and an independant character attatched to the squad. But yeah, faith needs to scale. We're crippled in higher point games.

> Personally, I'd like to see the return of Ordo Hereticus units;
Eh, I say let the GK keep them. The Ecclesiarchy can stand on its own. It just needs fleshing out. Novice squads and as you said zealots would be superb way to do this.

> Would adding Arbites to the army be blasphemy?
They're not really anything to do with the Sisters or the Ecclesiarchy. Maybe they could be a supplement for Imperial armies, though?

Oh, also viable Celestians. I really want paint them similarly to how they look in Soulstorm, but there is litttle to no reason to take them right now.
