I was wondering what do people think is the best bet a full 10 woman repentia squad or about 8 seraphim? I have been using repentia most of my WH gaming life and they have done well but recently felt like swapping of seraphim, I know seraphim are popular why I wanted to give a try but what’s peoples opinions? I’m going to guess seraphim, as they are more popular but lets see.

Repenta seems like a fun squad to have dont get me wrong. pros and cons
Pro of the serths
two attacks (2 pistols yay!)
Faster (dont have to cross fingers for holy rage!)
dont attack last in close combat
they have what some people call guns (bolt pistols... woo?)
Inferno pistols (hells to the ya)
Frag and krak gernades
Access to the armory
Pro of Repentia
Freakishly strange fall back moves >.>
... no that's about it
i would say 2d6 armor pen. but inferno pistols kinda take the cake on that one
Fear the Fun.
Yugo vs Ferrari?
Red Shirt vs Captain Kirk?
Clone Trooper vs Yoda?
Koala Bear vs Giant Squid?
One Legged Unarmed Ninja vs Pirate?

I thought at first this was a joke.
it's like comparing a squirt gun (which can be nasty when filled with noxious substances and squirted directly into someone's eye)
with a M1911 pistol. Which will kill your opponent, and knock them back 5ft while doing it.
I'd take a squad of 6Seraphim 2inferno pistols, and a Vss with an Evisc. over a full 10 strong unit of repentia any day.
Seraphim are one of the few units that is effective in all 3 phases of the turn. they move well, can shoot well, and can cc pretty well, then even hit-n-run well, to set up to use all 3 phases again.
repentia wear bikinis and wield giant chainsaws. which sounds much cooler than they really are
check out Farmpunk's blog:

You've got to admit, the image of a load of scantily-clad women with big chainsaws being whipped by another woman in a Basque-like suit of power armour has it's appeal...
I'm still voting for the Seraphim though. But that's because they're a million times better in almost every way.
Plus they are a scoring unit.
IMHO the 'ideal' repentia unit would be a cross half way between zealots/fanatics and the current repentia
How is this even a question? Its like asking whether you should back Brazil or Andora to win the Football world cup... Seraphim are faster, arguably better in combat because of faith, not quite as good at anti-tank, but if you give them melta-bombs they come pretty close, they can have a character attached, 3+ save, and all for an extra 2 pts...
I would like to roll around in superglue ad stick Seraphim minis to my bare flesh. That is how much I love them. I have enough models for 3 full squads,but am often forced to use only one or 2.
The repentia are fun if you feel the urge to shake up the army list for a fun-game. But in terms of unit quality, the seraphim come out on top in every way you can think of.
