Which do you prefer?
The rosarius with it's always on 4+ invulnerable?
Spirit of the Martyr that consumes a faith point at the beginning of the phase for a 3+ invulnerable (2+ if you're wearing the Cloak of St Aspira)?
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
One always lies, one always tells the truth, and one stabs people who ask tricky questions.
I guess it depends on how many faith points you generate. If you generate quite a few of them, then the faith point version is well worth it.
I'm not entirely sure how faith points work yet, since I don't own the WH codex yet, but this is my best guess.
well, the spirit of the martyr requires that you roll equal or UNDER the number in the squad. With most squads at full (10) str. it's really difficult to roll, plus it only lasts that one phase
Lets just say that personally i would never leave the Rosarius out because i'm counting on using Acts of Faith to get Invulnerable saves......

I personally find a rosarius more dependable than any faith points. My canoness has both a rosarius and the cloak of St. Aspira, which I find highly effective and almost unbeatable if it were not down to a few unlucky rolls. Remember you can use the spirit of the matur if dire need dose arise even if you do have a rosarius.
And seeing that you have to make Spirit of the Martyr rolls at the beginning of the phase, you're gonna have to kinda guess if there will be a dire need. Or find out the hard way after its too late.
I would use the Rosarius, it's more. . .dependable.
Anyway, the Cloak of St. Aspira only affects the user's armour save, not an invulnerable save.
My suggestion is as above posters said, don't count on faith points. But if you're a risk taker ditch the rosarius and go for the 2+ invul save because you know when your character is gonna get beat down as Independent characters can only be hit in CC by enemies in Btb or supporting a model that is in BTB with the Ind. Character, IE hard to hit them.
Depends how lucky you think you are if ya wanna save the points
I've just mentioned that it does not confer a 2+ invulnerable save. Tut tut.
Anyway, I still say stick with the Rosarius. It's cheaper, and it protects better. Most of the time you won't need to use your invulnerable save.
If you have a Cloak of St. Apsira AND you use Spirit of the Martyr, then yes, you DO get a 2+ Invulnerable save.
So tut tut yerself.
