I love the sisters repentia models, they are realy cool, but i dont have any of them in my army, cuz i noticed that no one ever uses them, actually i havent met a single person who deploys them in the battlefield, i think thats because they always attack last, only have str 6 save 4+ and no invulnerable, they are not that cheap either, so my question is, how many of u, wh players, use 'em ??? and if u use them, what specific job do u use them for ???
They open up tanks like a tin can, if you can get em there alive.
I Run my repentia behind two units of acro flagellents in 1500 pts they usually make it alive. but if nothing else they draw alot of fire leaving your other units to survive.
In the eyes of a bullet all are created equal *maniacal laughter*
Their not that bad, although their style is just too much like the flagellants. Their expensive yes, but they have Eviscerator's which you'll find your opponent's face drop as you get your babies into action. Consider their special rules too. The Only in death dose duty end rule make them a fast attack unit if you can get them into Holy Rage. They are a very dependable unit even if they have only a 4+ save, mainly due to the special rule of 'righteous zeal'. Lot's of fun there!
No, they are not essentials, and it's better to keep your concentration with other units and then decide to take on some Sister' Repentia. They work better in large units, but are too expensive to reach them to the max. number of 19.
I like the fact that if they "fail" a morale check, they can move toward your opponent in THEIR shooting phase!
Sisters Repentia are only any good against vehicles.
Of course you can make a mob of them and they could old their own for a couple turns in cc but at their cost i doubt they could make up their points unless going against Termies..... even then i don't know...

heavy weapons teams with heavy bolter, autocannons, assault vannons and other similair weapons, should also be avoided as these can easily reduce their numbers fast
