I have a question about SoB and Imperial Guard relations (in terms of rank differences).

Could a normal SoB assume control of an Imperial guard squad, or would she take orders from the unit's sergeant?

>> No.33126489

What do you mean by normal SoB? A rank and file Battle Sister?

It's highly dependant on the politics going on outside the battle, the IG regiment and SoB order etc

They're from completely different organisations and neither are in the command tree of the other. So it becomes requests for help, and one may defer to the other if they have more experience.

Basically it's situation dependant and there is no over-arching answer, now like every other vague question on /tg/ we require more information about the scenario and characters involved.

>> No.33126607

Ok then. Here's the scenario.

>Normal rank and file IG squad finds a rank and file SoB
>SoB's unit is ded.

My question is, for the rest of the mission. Does the SoB either:
>join the squad and has the command role of an average IG trooper.
>Join the squad and have a command role equal/greater than the unit's sergent.
>or does she remain autonomous to the IG squad, acting like a supporting unit.

>> No.33126628

The last one, most likely

>> No.33126645

What's the mission? Do both squads have the same objective? If not which squads objective is the more important one?

>> No.33126650

Most battle sisters are trained how to fight and revere the the emperor and not much else. A sister superior might be able to organize a squad of guardsmen temporarily in the heat of battle, but the combat doctrines are so different that most canonnesses would not be able to make effective use of guardmen organized into anything platoon sized or larger. Similarly, most SoBs are too willful to take direct orders from guard sergeants, except perhaps in the heat of battle, and being around non-sisters really messes up their mojo.

>> No.33126664


The third one.
She's not a rank-and-file guardsman nor a civilian, but she's also most likely smart enough that trying to take command on no other basis than her working for the church will only end in disgruntled Guardsmen and her getting fragged.

>> No.33126702

It's doubtful that she would take command but might if the squad's sarge was unable to lead and she had the most battlefield experience. A lone soldier isn't likely to be very effective on her own, so until she has a conflicting mission the sister probably joins up with the squad until she can make her way back to the rest of the sorotias forces.

>> No.33126704

For the purpose of this scenario. we're going to say that they were both doing patrols out of FOBs

>> No.33126729

What do you think happens to lone guardsmen who are found by Space Marine squads after their entire unit was massacred?

*smart enough to realize that

Also, what would the SoB gain from taking command? Surely The Emperor's Will will be served just as well, or even better, by the Guardsmen if she doesn't interrupt their work.

>> No.33126749

Thanks guys, you've been a real help.

>> No.33126752

so what would spess do?

>> No.33126755

So she most likely either accompanies the guardsmen back to friendly lines in order to get the bodies of her squad (and their weapons and armour) removed from the battlefield. Or she requests the guardsmen radio in a message for her superiors to do the same.

Assuming neither party is particularly dickish they work alongside one another, and work on using request/respect to each get their tasks accomplished quickly and efficiently.

>> No.33126783

May I ask what you needed the information for? Are you writing a story?

>> No.33126915

Only war scenario. Guardsmen unit is half NPC. PCs are the heavy weapons guy, sniper, demo guy a vehicle operator/normal IG. And finally a R&F guardsman.

I would write a story, but alas I am not good at it.

>> No.33126940

She doesn't take command and she doesn't take orders.

But the IG squad would probably end up doing what she wants believing she is in charge kind of like if they found a lost Space Marine.

>> No.33127113

That looks like it would be hashed out between the SoB and the Sargent.

>> No.33127187

Probably. The Sergeant probably wouldn't call off the whole mission just to do what the SoB want, but he would probably also help her if it doesn't jeopardize the mission (and if he's not a complete asshole).

Also, it depends a lot on what the SoB wants to do. If she wants help to get back through enemy lines a couple of kilometers away and has important intel, then I think the IG's will listen to her. If she wants them as meatshields to kill a deamon, then cooperation is much less likely.

"Sister" is a perfectly valid address, if a bit generic. Her exact Sororitas rank, if the speaker can identify it, is better. In a pinch, "Lady" is a correct address as well.

>> No.33127311

Your Holiness? They are like Nuns.

>> No.33127341


That is actually reserved to Cardinals and high-ranking priests. Despite the respect they command, the Sisters of the Adepta Sororitas do not reach such an exalted rank within the Ecclesiarchy, for it would clash with their primary mission of service by tempting them with earthly power.

>> No.33127343

"Sister" would work, just you would if you met a real world nun you don't know. When they know her name "Sister [whatever]" would be fine. Feudal-planet guardsman might call her Lady because they assume she's nobility from the swanky armour, weapons and full set of teeth. "Lady" is probably the generic term for woman who outranks you anyway, but their might be cultural specific ones depending on the regiment

>> No.33127365

Yeah, but it sounds kinda frail to me. Of course, it probably wouldn't if I lived in a society where the title can refer to combat nuns in power armour, for course.

>> No.33127401

Nobody who isn't a Space Marine himself would ever call one Brother, though. So would the SoB think you're disrespectful if you call her Sister without being her peer?

>> No.33127407

Lore-wise a single Space Marine is worth hundred or so guardsmen, so w/e.

>> No.33127495


That depends, actually. There are Space Marines who actually prefer to be referred to as "Brother-(insert rank if ranked) (name)" rather than "Lord (name)".

This being said, there are also "cultural" differences between the two organisations. Sisters see themselves as the humblest and most faithful servants of the Emperor, and are often pretty humble. Space Marines see themselves as the Defenders of Humanity, and often demand the respect that duty deserves from anyone around them.

>> No.33127556

Lady seems a little over the top, unless the guardsmen are particularly feral. I'd say Sister or Ma'am, and Ma'am would probably be used as a form of respect rather than an actual difference in ranking.

>> No.33127596

I doubt it. Space Marines are distant relatives of the Emperor through their primarchs, so in a snese they are both literal angels of death and nobles of the Imperium. A Sister is a mortal woman who has a calling to follow the God-Emperor, and while she's worthy of immense respect, unless she's a heroic or explicitly sanctified figure she isn't anywhere near Marine (unless, again, the guardsman are especially devout). Same deal with clerics and some techpriests being called brother, basically, although you might call a cogboy "Adept" instead.

>> No.33127597

Yeah, Lady just makes it seem sarcastic. "I'll follow your orders, lady." "At once, lady." Yeah...

>> No.33128074

m'lady would be more sarcastic, but I'd imagine the usual term would be sister.

>> No.33128125

Just want to point out that a standard Battle Sister was also trained to potentially serve as a Hospitaller, Dialogus or Famolus as a novice so they usually are way more skilled than a typical IG grunt.

I will refer to Prosper burns here(yes HH series , kill me).
The guard there hated the interference of the wolves. They called for space marine help but once they realized the space wolves were the closest ally almost cut the message.
Wolves had a pretty bad reputation there. Full disregard for human commanders, their pride and previously lost battles the guard wanted to make amends for. Butchering enemies to unidentifiable pulps of flesh.
At least in the HH series they are refered to as the executioners of the emperor and are hinted to be responsible for taking out the 2 mystery legions.
Guard fear them more than the rest. But then again in some books that is the opposite.

You also have to keep in mind that Abnett has admitted to not liking the Space Wolves. According to his blog, he thinks they and their whole schtick are silly.

In the 40k fluff, all the way back to 2nd edition, the Space Wolves are one of the most loved chapters. At least by regular people.
Yes, high ranking people dislike or even hate them, but only because the Wolves aren't afraid to call them out for being fucking assholes.
