    Combat Sisters Ideas

    I'm wondering what kind of lists would you see in a combat sister army, not Witchhunters with arco's, priests, penitent, eversor's etc. But with sisters only(I'll let in Inquisitors, but other than that it has to be adeptus sororitas).

    It can be a mechanised combat army, treating transports as shields prior to combat. It can be footslogging, relying on the additional troops as sacrifices before combat. Or a mixture of both.

    All unique thoughts and ideas respected and rep'd.

    If someone helps you, rep them.
    In a votewar you don't vote on a single match, you vote on the entire round. Got that?

    Not actually legal either - can't use the inquisitor from the DH book to qualify for the assassin from the WH book.

    As for close combat sisters, i'd be tempted just to pack in as many bodies as possible and hope for the best. You could easily get 150+ Sisters and Celestians with evicerators at 2500.
    Karamazov might be a workable centerpiece for his Ld reroll and bonus attacks (and tank busting) or you could field a suitably large 'counts as' Karamazov like the warmachine harbringer model.
    Priests optional as they don't 'de-faith' squads.

    I don't really understand why you would want to play cc-sisters without the use of Grey Knight allies. That's equivalent of playing cc-guards or shooty chaos marines/shooty orks. You're playing against their strengths and just handicapping yourself.

    If you want to play pure cc-sisters, you need to have a couple of hammer units. I'd go with several squads of stubborn sisters to tarpit the enemy. Forget about kitting them out with eviscerators or whatnot...it's not worth it. Then get 2 canoness with cloaks and eviscerator/blessed weapons, 2 squads of stubborn celestians with eviscerators and then 2 squads of eviscerator seraphims to hit and run tarpitted units. I'm not sure how many points that is exactly, but I'm pretty sure you could do something like that at 2000pts.

    Actually... I'd go this way... Are priests part of the Inquisition?

    If you dropped the frags, matercrafting, and braziers you'd get a whole extra 20 strong squad and change in there.

    Obvious points - don't buy frags for models with evicerators. Don't buy multimeltas for squads with priests (always count as moving).

    yeah I realized it wasn't very well optimized after I posted it. But I just didn't want to go through and reedit it all.

    i see you have never played a list with 20+ ork loota's? or with 15 havocs and noise marines? not everything is obvious.

    if i was going to go for all combat, i would bring a priest and a bunch of sisters repentia, supported by small flamer and combat units in rhinos to screen them as they peg it across te board il work out some points when i get home, but i played 1500points footslogging sisters with 40 sisters and 2 cannonesses, and 20 sisters repentia, it worked quite well for me
    Fantasy : Empire, Chaos Warriors, Chaos Daemons, Vampire Counts, Beastmen, High Elves, Lizardmen( but i have opinions on every army just not the money)
    40k: Black Templars, Imperial Guard, Dark Eldar, Tau (thinking of Eldar)
