    Hmm, what are the tactics with this, blast away?

    I like the diversity in the infantry platoon, but I'd switch the hull heavy flame thrower to a bolter, just me.

    The split between an armored fist and a platoon in this army is bothering me for some reason. It could work, but wouldn't transports in other places be good?

    I tried the setup with two armoured fist squads but there were frankly too many vehicles going around, creating bottlenecks, especially if the lead one got blown up. Using an infantry platoon I hope to set up a firebase in cover, especially if the mission contains escalation. If it doesn&#39;t have the required mobility, I&#39;ll drop 2 seraphim and give one squad of sisters a rhino.

    I really do not have any experience with both forces together but just two things, the first i thing is a typo but please remember that sisters have Boltguns/Bolters and not Storm Bolters as basic weaponry.

    Also; one thing that a friend of mine has used (he actually has IG with just the canoness as an ally) is that there is an item of wargear in Codex: WH which is a book and can help IG on Leadership matters. I can not say anymore because of Copyright but take a look for yourself and enjoy: is really handy...

    Well.... there are a lot of things sisters can do to give leadership. Its not just a book either. You can take the sisters banner in some games and make even guardsmen fearless. Sisters vehicles with Holy Icons, can add +1 to the leadership of nearby units too. Give it to that exorcist and your guardsmen have it made in the sun with a potential leadership of 10.

    The Sacred Banner of the Order Militant, the one which makes models fearless within 12", only applies the Adepta Sororita units, thus cannot be applied to guardsmen.

    The Holy Icon and Book of Saint Lucius do work, though. And you can say their names, just not their point costs.

    Well, sister squads have bolters with 1 storm bolter upgrade, like the armoured fist squad has lasguns with 1 meltagun. Perhaps I should have made this clearer. The honorifica imperialis and a vox caster in the armoured fist squad would raise the leadership value of the guards but at a significant point cost (more than a seraphim), so I&#39;m not quite certain if it is a good investment, especially since the guards will be mainly in cover or in the chimera.

    The good thing about the book os saint lucius is that it does not add +# to the Ld but gives a standard Ld value to all friendly models.

    A friend of mine takes a Canoness with the book and jump pack to accompany his Rough Riders with a good rate of success.
