I think same as Space Marines. So no diapers, just urinary catheter and filters so you can drink it right back. And something like a colostomy bag.
Or something like the current astronauts :

Since the two main convent can house only 15000 sisters (and each contain 3 major orders), an order of 200k sisters is extremely unlikely.
Sisters orders don't work like monastic orders IRL, but are an unit based on a main convent. Implicitely, new convent means new order (since GW didn't decide to base new orders on doctrinal or religious schisms).

But how could we make sisters more distinct from marines ?beside acts of faith, because that argument would take multiple threads on its own.

>> No.51010069

Double down on the acts of faith, emphasize how important belief is and give feats and abilities based off of that. For mission set, emphasize that they're less like a line combat unit and more a low-density spec ops unit. Sure, they have larger organizations, but they tend to operate in smaller units: solo, pairs, and choirs.

Well, I'm pretty happy with most of Imperial Agents, except that Inquisitors STILL don't have an Invuln save short of going Malleus and getting Terminator armor (Commissars and priests get refractor fields and rosariuses, but Inquisitors don't?) and that the Sister formation is pretty poor, especially compared to other army's formations.

If it did something like maybe bumping SoF to 5++, or maybe even make rerolling 1s a constant thing, I'd be satisfied. But rerolling 1s for saves for one turn is not ideal. Hell, I'd even be content with it if it at least gave Objective Secured as well, but not even that. There's not much incentive to take the formation over the standard Force Org.

It's also a shame there's still no line revamp, but at least that means I can keep using the metal Sisters I bought second-hand. Also, I can keep feeling like a snowflake, since not a lot of people can afford a Sisters army.

>> No.51010715

Make them a dedicated anti-psyker army. Better DtW than other armies (even psyker-heavy ones) and more anti-psyker weapons/formations. Also give them more short-range weapons based around the holy trinity of bolter, flamer, and melta.

Faith powers have never worked like psychic powers, in any edition. This is because, simply put, they aren't. Making the Sisters just a bunch of psykers would do little to help distinguish them from other armies (especially psyker-heavy) SM armies.

Not to mention that this would mean you could bring a bunch of psykers to give your sisters more warp charges for manifesting AoF and vice versa, which would be awful.

This sounds cool af.

My main complaint with the Sisters side of IA was the fact that they separated the Ecclesiarchy Battle Conclave units without giving them the rules necessary to function on their own. Death Cult Assassins need Infiltrate and Fleet, Arco-flagellants need Fleet as well. Crusaders are alright on their own, but nothing spectacular thanks to the lack of assault vehicles.

It also really doesn't work considering that the creation of Terminator Armor is supposed to be a long and intensive process with SM Chapters being lucky to have enough suits for their entire first company. You'd have to resort to something bulky that either offers a 3+ save and has some kind of benefit that isn't too good or armor that offers a +2 save but which has drawbacks more severe than Terminator Armor.

>> No.51012491

>Not to mention that this would mean you could bring a bunch of psykers to give your sisters more warp charges for manifesting AoF and vice versa, which would be awful.
It could still work if you gave them some debuff when allied psykers are nearby. Or make them try to deny the witch even when targeted by support powers.

Artificer armor is just master-crafted power armor and it gives a 2+ (but not the invulnerable save of the crux terminatus, nor the ability to take the cool termie weapons)

>> No.51012528


It had kind slipped my mind that the benefits of Terminator Armor is the 5++ save, Deep Strike, and armory. So at most you'd have to pick one of those and have some kind of drawback.

Sisters already have an invulnerable saves with shiled of faith and deep strikes with seraphims or drop pods; and terminator weapons aren't really what they're famous for, as they like their bolt-flame-melta triangle a lot.

If you want tougher sisters without making them marines bis, how about ceramite shields that allow to reroll failed 3+ saves? Increased protection, but not against weapons with good AP.

I don't think sisters should be inherently tougher, they're supposed to be somewhere between Guard and Marines in terms of durability, which is about where they sit right now. Maybe give units like Canonesses and Celestians optional Artificer armor, but that's about as far as it should go IMO.

Hm. Give them access to a larger array of support vehicles and aircraft? They do regularly take on enemies that are fully capable of meeting an Astartes head on with a 50-50 chance of success. Having the extra firepower and tactical flexibility would fit for them

Leave the stats of the vehicles as they, people will find a way to abuse it, so keeping guard shit at BS3 might prevent that a bit.

Eh, I feel like terminator armour is a bit cliche.

Artificer armour is more fitting for a human and for the Ecclessiarchy's 'We have all the fucking dosh ever' and that gives them a 2+/6+ which is only a little worse. That and it's more ornate.

What I would like to see is the SOB get a bit more in the way of unusual ranged weapons. As right now 'They use the marine list but smaller' doesn't do well for them. Give them napalm grenade launchers or a railgun firing those anti-psyker stakes at incredible speed.

Suggestions to make Sisters more "unique" by giving them a bunch of peripheral Imperial units is the complete opposite of making them unique, it's making them an Imperial grab bag. They need more wargear to call their own.

Bolters with chainsword bayonets would be something I could see them using, giving some kind of close combat bonus like +1 Initiative on the charge or something. But I also just masturbate the idea to Lancers in 40k.

>> No.51038557


That weapon exists (Or it did in the 3e codex).

It gave them reroll to wounds if they had no other special melee weapon.

These days it would likely count as a melee weapon itself. AP 5, Str: As User, Rerolls to Wound or something.

>> No.51038600

Giving them back options they had in 3e and then moving on with the potential they had there is really all that needs to happen. Blessed ammunition for ignoring the Daemon special rule (I doubt they'd allow ignoring all Invul saves anymore), expanding on the 'holy trinity' with some of the more modern takes on flamers and melta weapons, maybe another unit type or two of Sister to get into the giant robot game that's so popular recently, etc.

I'd love to see the non-battle sister orders have a bit more of a showing in various roles. They'd also be good way to fill in some roles that the SOB themselves don't.

Like say, the Order Pronatus would be a good option if you wanted something a bit more light armoured without going to 'Look, SOB versions of space marine scouts by making it rookie sisters'.

We talking about organization streched across whole galaxy, on every(or 99%) planet with human population not dedicated to Mechanicum there will be some Church presence, often if not always protected by Sisterhood. We talking about hundrets of milions Sororitas. So my bet is Orders can be as big as it is needed, or we are talking about milions of orders. There are hundrets of small one, made for specyfic task or happening like Order Hospitaler made for crusade but even Imperium isnt so dumb to artificaly separate them in to tiny cells.

The Convent buildings, as in in all the Imperium, or only at their headquarters at Terra and Orphelia? Also, do they house any Order Militant or only the major ones? Or is each Order has its own dedicated builduings to house 15,000 each?

There's 6 major Orders Militant, so if they're all between 3 and 4 thousand women strong, that's between 18,000 and 24,000 just for them, possibly more if they "reach a peak of six or seven thousands", and then there's a lot of minor Orders. The Lexicanum counts 14 of them, so even if there's, say, only 300 warriors in each, that give at least 4,200 more. 42,000 if they were at full strength. Which they probably aren't most of the time.

So far there's theorytically between 22,200 and 66,000 Battle Sisters. And then there's all those that aren't mentionned as well (who knows how many of these Orders there is exactly?).

So really, there can be a huge lot of them.

For the anon that wanted SoB pinups.

>we are talking about milions of orders
Yes. As illustrated in >>51041697, for GW one convent = one or multiple orders. Canonesses are supposed to lead an entire order and they are below prioresses in rank.

And in the 6th edition codex, preceptories were said to deviate from the main order in both tradition and livery. Strangely GW didn't follow orthodoxy for the sisters.

I think sabines would make for better units than pronatus, since they go with the missionaries, scout the stars and explore new worlds, and infiltrate non-imperial societies. You can put almost any kind of troop in them.
Also dual bolt pistols are supposed to be used by the elite gun-kata sisters. It's strange to see it on a basic profile.

Honestly, the Repentia would be great if

A) They had their old ability back (When they died, they got to make attacks after all other attacks in the combat THEN died)
B) The SOB had a way to get them to the enemy.

Fragile but dangerous is fine but right now they don't actually threaten the enemy as they are fragile and slow so melee people will murder them before they get to hit and range people will just gun them down. An open topped or assault transport would help them immensely.

Because penitent engines were around long before people thought about making something like that a MC.

Being a low AV and open toped makes them sadly a waste. I have played games with 6 of them for fun and made it to combat ONE time when the green tide +nob biker squad i was playing thought he would just deal with them in CC.....

Oh god that was glorious. they walk up and just torch 2 mobs of boys into almost nothing. multi charge whats left and chaining in the biker squad into the combat.

Like, they've survived every battle they get thrown into, no matter how fierce, and the SoBs have taken it as a sign that even the Emperor isn't ready to forgive them yet.

Nah, the Repentia are their own thing, as I keep having to tell people.

No idea who the Penitent should be, or what their crime is, maybe that could be a part of it?

Like, not even the Sororitas know who this pretty, raven-haired chick is (cause it's gotta be a chick), and only have various rumours instead.

Maybe she was a planetary governess, or an Inquisitrix, someone at the very height of the Imperial bureaucracy who fell all the way down to the bottom.

Maybe it was just a street rat who happened, through nothing more than being in the right place at the wrong time, to commit a crime so heinous that even the Emperor won't let her find forgiveness through death.

Stuff like that.

Sadly I can't be much help to you about rules, I could never get into that part of the game, but I guess you'd need to have something to reflect that this thing just won't die, and will throw itself into ever more desperate situations in an attempt to rectify that.

Aren't the penitents supposed to be from the Ecclesiarchy only?
On that note, I didn't expect any imperial subfaction to be like "we mess up sometimes. here's a giant suicidal walker so everyone is reminded of that fact".

How about some Death Cult Assassin that failed a mission and was put into a penitent engine as punishment?
No amount of psycho-conditionnig was able to completely remove the pilot's assassin training, so it gets Uncanny Reflexes and Infiltrate. it's a really old pernitent engine
It would explain why it was able to survive so long, but in the end I simply like the idea of an engine popping out of concealment to wreak havoc with some unsuspecting unit.

Right, cause, the word Penitent refers to someone, historically, who regrets their sins or wrongdoings and then seeks forgiveness from God.

And, applying it to this would add a very interesting extra angle, that these people are being wired into machines to seek redemption through death of their own free will, in the hopes of finding forgiveness.

>> No.51059371

Seems to me that they are brainwashed into trying to atone, like in soviet show trials

The fluff from the codex :
>To be a pilot of a Penitent Engine is to have committed a terrible crime, one so heinous that punishment such as imprisonment, exile, arco-flagellation or execution is deemed too lenient. Many of the unfortunates sentenced to pilot a Penitent Engine were once members of the Ecclesiarchy – priests fallen from grace or Battle Sisters who have, through failure of duty or faith, caused the deaths of their fellows. A multitude of wires and chemical injectors are implanted into the condemned pilots’ spines, and when they are not ripping through the ranks of their enemies, lances of pain and images of guilt shoot directly into their brains, reminding them of their sins. Driven by their pilots’ frantic need for forgiveness, Penitent Engines charge towards the closest foe in sight heedless of any danger, knowing that only in death – theirs or the enemy’s – can forgiveness finally be earned.
>Penitent Engines often charge into battle beside the ranks of the Orders Militant.

I'm all for the Imperial Church being grimdark enough to reverse corrupt CSM with mindrape, but there's a major difference between a SoB sleeping on duty and someone who has spent 10.000 years worshipping the Dark Gods. If that doesn't warrant imediate execution I don't know what does.

You're probably right. I think GW loves characters becoming hysterical with self-hatred over petty things.

It kind of is, depending on your definition and source of origin. I'd say possibly Japan still does it to some extent, again depending on definition.

To be fair, FW didn't pull all of their Dreadnought concepts out of thin air. The FW designs hearken back to Dreadnoughts that were actually different from each other for reasons besides being extra armored and ornately decorated. A lot also comes from the fact that you have a chassis and change it up so that it's appearance better reflects what Legion or Chapter it belongs to or if it even belongs to the Custodes.

Shit probably sells as well, so that doesn't hurt as a reason to make more. I'll admit that the Custodes Dreadnought looks pretty cool.

DCA, Crusaders, Flagellants: Can grab Rhinos and Immolators.
Marines can grab, Rhinos, Drop Pods, Black Star and Landraiders.
SoB can get: Rhinos and Immolators.

The problems are not the transport of finding something big enough to fit them. The problem is that each part of the formation are from different factions. Hence why they can't start the game inside a transport.

You can have GK/DW/SoB + Acolytes + Inquisition shit + SoB shit (DCA, Crusaders, Flagellants and Priest) + Psyker. All in one big unit. But thanks to the retards at GW no one bother to mention they can start inside a transport in that particular formation.

So my classic Deepstriking from a Valk Acolytes with multiple plasmguns + Psyker for Prescience does not work anymore.

Even with the risk of slaaneshi corruption, some ecclesiarchy prelates have concubines, and imperial nobility is known for it's roman decadence vibes, and IG brothels are a thing. So they're probably exposed to some lewdness unless stationned on a very remote convent.
Sisters' life in peacetime is working, praying, training. Even if we get rid of christian prudishness, they would see anything that isn't part of their spartan lifestyle as an annoying distraction at best, and as a disgusting habit bordering on heresy at worst.
So depending on the sister it could range from "eurgh, guardsmen... *roll eyes*" to "Is that St. Pradexes with Lord Macharius!? Burn, Iconoclast!"

On a sidenote, it's a big galaxy, and it's perfectly possible for some orders to follow a tantric lifestyle including sex rituals (that is very strict, even in its sexual aspects, despite what popular representation would make you believe).

Even though it could be a source of chaotic corruption, Slaanesh corruption seems to be the one that the Sororita may fall for, one could argue that the Imperium worships the Holy Human Form, which is probably why the Sororita Armor emphasizes their physique, and also the Emperor Protects, acts of unimaginable violence, and I presume, lewdness too, can be done if under His protection without fear of corruption.

I am no expert, I really want to know if there is any canon explanation on lewdness.

You can look on the website. I didn't do a super in depth look, but I really didn't see anything on one sprue that looked like it belonged to another model.


Their old look is somewhat drab for an organization that is supposed to belong to the Imperium as a whole and not a specific world or regiment. Their current armor makes them look more ornate like the rest of the hotshots of the Imperium.

Never officially touched upon. Unofficially, I'd imagine that it's alright so long as it doesn't affect your ability to do your duties, which is how most militaries in the world have historically treated it. The DH books mention that several worlds maintain Roman-style gladiator arenas for entertainment, even though that would technically be something that could lead to Khornate corruption. I think that intent is a big part of this. When you view pr0n, hire a prostitute, or visit your local colosseum, you're doing it for entertainment, not for it's own sake, which seems to be what Chaos is mostly about.

Thanks, that was a very good explanation.

Strict, Spartan, Tantric sexual dicipline ... yeah, I can work with that B^)

Maybe I've been for way too long on the internet, but I always thought that there was some hidden sexual thing with the Sororita, with all their history as the Brides of the Emperor and how the few prominent corrupted Sororita tend to fall for Slaanesh

Am I the only one who finds all these scars to be bullshit? If they are that heavily armored and something goes through, wouldn't it kill them?

>> No.51085615

Most of the scars we see are on their faces, and it's mentioned a lot of Sisters don't wear helmets.

Body scars could be from self-flagellation.

i'm kinda new to WH40k
will they be playable in the new dawn of war game?

Even doing it for entertainment probably feeds Chaos a little bit.


I think even GW does the scar thing, vaguely recall the highest ranking Sister in the Shield of Baal books was described as having a scar from fighting a Lictor.

>> No.51086268

If they are, it won't be at launch. Only factions at launch will be Space Marines, Eldar, and Orks.

Everything feeds Chaos.

I actually have concerns about him when it comes to celestine.

Having ordered from him before, I can say that whilst his molding is excellent, the material of his miniatures tends to be somewhat weak and prone to breaking when it comes to very thin parts.

How the hell would one deal with that in the case of a model like celestine? Her wings would be bad enough, but the stand holding up her model is literally a thin, long scroll of parchment. Just looking at it would cause it to snap.(If it even arrives in one piece.) And converting the model with a clear support is gonna draw unwanted attention from everyone. (There's always going to be someone on the lookout for signs of recasts, even at a non-gw FLGS.)

Playing a Sister from a fuedal world in Rogue Trader right now. Their order is basically all that.

I'd put that on a lot of fatguys being horny and BL authors being really unimaginative at times.

Or for an in-universe explanation, maybe Sisters of Khorne, Nurgle of Tzeench are so mutated that you don't recognize them as female anymore, while slaanesh giving the androgynous and/or oversexualized treatment means a lot of its followers look like bolter bitches.

Wasn't there a version with tits and no bluelines on imgur?

I'm going to magnet the shit of that thing in the hopes any bumps just makes the wings pop or the body fall from the scrolls.

Maybe I'll add some glue up chains to add some support.

I hope the chains from the harbinger of month are long enough

Nah, that one's not part of UA. From what I heard, it was first made for Dark Crusade, and then got ported to Soulstorm.

I like it. It's pretty good, not least because it's not just the SoBs you get.

First tier units are Arbites. When I made a squad, the first thing they said was "We are the Law!" and I knew that this was what I had wanted.
