I love the concept of pyromaniac nuns with guns in space.

How do I build a cost effective (money wise) army with the Sisters of Battle in 40k?

And can I get Sisters art while we're at it?

>How do I build a cost effective (money wise) army with the Sisters of Battle in 40k?

learn to recast

maybe wait for Raging Heroes "totally not SoB models" or Dreamforge Games "space knights with female heads"

>> No.30310869

Marines with alternative heads and 3rd party shoulder pads and backpacks (anvil industru, maxmini, etc.)? Unless you really want skintight boob plates. Maybe DA vets with their robed bodies, mixed with some BT and sternguard for added bling and shit. Whirlwinds make good exorcists and I'm sure you could rig a dread or a sentinel into a penitent engine.

Get some female troopers from other ranges - Most of them are pretty exploitative, but, well, that's 40k too. Pick up flamers and bolters to modify their arms and armor, and while official sisters don't have significant shoulder-pads giving girls Marine pads is a good way to signify sisters.

Honestly, any of them. As they wear power armour, it's a matter of painting it to look less 'Power armour' and more 'Robo arm'

If you want more than a colour scheme, you could have some serious trouble. As metal minis don't help a lot. I'd lean the Cannoness though, just because her arms are separate from her body iirc.

The WDex was specifically because the update to the GK and other plans would directly conflict with the Witchhunters dex. There was no plans at the time for a new Sister dex so the easiest fix was the WDex. Something that required an afternoon to write.
Their 6th ed dex was because GW wasn't just going to PDF the WDex, gone are the days of freebies, and because of that people were using the 3rd ed dex again or being told by numerous GW staff to just pirate the fucking thing.
So if they are going to charge you a fucking fortune for the WDex, they might as well fix one or two hanging issues.

But it's not just the WD 'dex again. They changed quite a lot of stuff around, as well as adding in new stuff like fluff, art, apoc formations, relics, alter of war missions and warlord traits.

Only play in low points games. A functional list would be:

Flamer Sister + Heavy Flamer Sister: $15 Three Sisters: $17
Sister Superior: ~ $13
Immolator: $37 (GW) or $58 (FW).
One Properly Kitted Squad: $82 from GW: more if you want your Immolator to have a turret. You need two of these.

Two Exorcists: $57 each

Four Melta Dominions: $40
One Sister Superior: $13
Repressor (FW): $60
One Dominion Squad: $113

Total (sans HQ): $391, for 17 models and 5 vehicles.
Snapping them up off ebay, extensive kitbashing, or recasting can all drive the cost down, but you're looking at about $400 as a "target" for a force this small.

The incorruptible Grey Knights killed a bunch of Sisters to coat their weapons and armor in the blood so they wouldn't be corrupted by the blood tide.

>> No.30329264

Taken from the Bloodtide story in the GK codex where they killed some sisters that had survived the tide previously to better protect themselves from it.

Corruption and being taken over by deamonic mind-controlling nanobots are 2 very different things.

>> No.30329328

They wouldn't have been taken over, they have runes or some shit in their bones that burn them from the inside. They might die, but not become corrupted or taken over. Anyway, the whole thing was poorly done especially since a Bloodtide was beaten back with flamers by the White Scars.

>> No.30329375

If it were just deamons, I'd agree, but they're nano-machines as well.

Also worth pointing out that Grey Knights anointing their weapons, armor, and even their bolter shells with the blood of innocents is something that dates back to at least 2nd edition.

>> No.30329450

I'm not saying that it was unprecedented, but that was done in a slightly more ritualized fashion. This was a borderline Khorne incident. I know they butcher innocents all the time, but this particular piece could have been handled better.

I believe it's somewhere in the codex that says they can't be corrupted, not because they are the purest of the pure but because they self-destruct if they begin to. As I said, it would be just another Grey Knight slaughter party if it had been written better.

Not sure if I'm missing the joke here but keep the Bolter-Flamer-Melta mentality and the Sisterhood doesn't have the ability produce their own armour (Not since 1st ed) so self-recruitment is also out as they would need contact with the Ecclesiarchy for more armour so they might as well take Sister Novicates through the standard channels as well.

Also, depending on the rank of the Canoness (Say, Canoness Superior) or, if they have it, Prioress leading them, they could already pretty much ignore 99% of everything the Eccles tells them to do as their own leader would technically outrank the source of their orders and holds the authority to ignore said orders.
Arch-Bishops and higher can't (Generally) be ignored but nothing short of the Ecclesiarch itself can directly order the Sisters around.
(Even then, if the Sisters feel this isn't in their best interests or that these orders are bad, they can still ignore them or even directly question them and their source)

I continually wonder why people think the Argent Shroud are so nice.

>After the recent arrival of the Adepta Sororitas at Volcanus Hive, I have taken the liberty of sending four companies of the Order of the Argent Shroud to engage the recent Ork landings in the Fire Wastes. The remainder are being split down into demi-companies and deployed throughout Prime and Secundus.

>As we are all aware, the Order of the Argent Shroud are renowned for their mandate of regulating the activities of not just members of the Ecclesiarchy, but of other Imperial organisations they come into contact with as well. Whilst I appreciate their dedication and success at rooting out traitors and dissenters within our midst, the effect upon the general morale of any fighting arm during their investigations almost always depreciates as their purges continue.

>We may be fortunate that incumbent Canoness Carmina is a little less zealous than her predecessors, particularly where the Adeptus Astartes are concerned. I recommend you consult Imperial record Ref: Jan/44698822/SMG regarding the attacks on the forward bases of the Angels Vermillion whilst the Order was under the leadership of Canoness Dissenta.

They're not completely nice, but /tg/ likes to think of them as space paladins

Their description does describe them as altruistic and self-sacrificing, so they can still be "nice". Just SoBs at the same time.

The infamous description page which newbies keep posting can be safely ignored since it's all just Ward fluff. No one in the Imperium is as bloodthirsty as Sororitas and the waifufags need accept it.

No. It's an illegal recasting site.
