Yesterday I heard of a tactic that some sisters of battle player was using in a tournament. I don't know exactly what he used for most of his stuff but the things that pretty much screamed sick to me was playing a generic space marine army and then taking sisters as allies and having Vulkan hestan in your army so that all flamer, heavy flamers , meltas ,and multi-meltas become twin-linked. That combined with the fact that sisters weapons become ap1 on a 6 is just so awesome and wrong. Also if you didn't know he also makes thunder hammers master-crafted, just throwing that in there. What do you guys think about this tactic, have you seen it anywhere?
Yeah, using Vulkan alongside some Sisters has been one of the potential tricks that people have been drooling over - the most burny army out there, coupled with a character that makes things just that much more burny?? Yes, please!!
Potentially very powerful, but the extreme short range and a lack of enough power to reliably crack troops with heavy armour makes it a rather risky one, too. To make the most of it you need to load up on flamers, so you're at a big disadvantage when you're at any sort of range, especially against shooty armies!
That's quite an abuse of a rule bad choice of wording... It's quite obvious that "Chapter Tactics" Only apply to space marines units.
Anyone trying to even argue that this rule be applied to allied armies is definitely trying to cheat, the wording might be a bit unspecific when they use the words "your army" but it's quite obvious it's meant to be for space marines units only.
Just my two cents, but if someone was trying to pull that on on me i would grab my army and go play someone else. (Possibly after having force fed the offender his/her army.)
This has already been discussed in a previous post in the Space Marines forum. IIRC, the consensus was that if you're a space marine army who takes sister allies, then you can apply the twin-linked to the sisters as it is still 1 army sharing the same FOC. However, if it is 2 armies (i.e. multiple detachments or a 2-on-2 game), then no as they are separate armies.

why because vulcan is incapable of "modifying" sisters weapons if they are fighting together?
sounds like your a bit over aggressive buddy....threats of violence over something that has been ok'ed by Adapticon? Sounds like you may be the person we need to walk away from...yes go read the adapticon tourney faq it specifically mentions vulcan and the sisters and states if sister are taken as allies they recieve the twin linked rule,
The same as if you took GK termies with TH they recieve the master crafting.

I think the reason people take issue to this is primarily fluff based. It's not about Vulkan modifying their weapons I don't think, but more that he represents that the Salamanders tend to have superior worksmanship (and a love for flamey, thumpy death dealing).
Adepta Sororitas Covents are never part of Space Marines Chapters, thus why would they benefit from Chapter Tactics? That it has been okayed anywhere just further prove that Imperials are the favorite children and end up stretching the rules of fair play.
Chapter Tactics are like Adepta Sororitas and Grey Knights' special rules, they are meant to be used only by appropriate units. (IE the Chapter.)
I might be somewhat aggressive, but that's only against those that would try to abuse rules.
