    Sister Elites tips

    Since no-one really seems to be adding to this forum, I will add instea, just in case anyone might need a bit of info on those nuns with guns (a.k.a. Bolter Bitches).

    Sister Elites tips:
    Don't rely on me! But if thou has no other option this is what i've found has worked well:

    Never got into Dominions (but i will try to write about them seperatly some other time when i can be bothered), but I love Celestians. I buy them separately because I don't believe in them as an assault unit except
    in extremis, and if you attach them to a Canoness you've either got
    to kit them all out with character upgrades, etc., or waste the
    Canoness' rather decent close combat stats. My Celestians have a
    single multi-melta and a Rhino, and their job is to quickly range
    ahead, dig into cover overlooking crucial board areas, and proceed
    to blow the bejeezus out of anything coming within 24". The bolters
    aren't necessarily great for this, but the Multi-Melta rarely misses
    at BS4 and has derailed entire advances while the enemy tries to
    deal with the thorn in its side. Celestians don't break easily,
    anyone trying to charge them usually has to make difficult terrain
    rolls to reach (and will get *smoked* if they don't), and even if
    they do get engaged there's a bit of Holy Hatred dealt out on the
    first round. A squad of these ladies occupied an entire Eldar flank
    for three turns while the rest of my army advanced. They eventually
    died, but it took a lot of Starcannon and Pulse Laser fire to
    accomplish it, with the Eldar losing a Viper and two Warwalkers in
    exchange. Cover saves are a lovely thing. The now empty Rhino,
    meanwhile, usually goes on to block key sightlines, tank shock, and
    otherwise make a nuisance of itself disrupting the enemy. Firing on
    it not only wastes a heavy weapon (or more) but risks causing it to
    become permanently blocking terrain. Not firing on it means it keeps
    mobile, which is even worse. Not a bad distraction for 48-odd points.

    You&#39;d be surprised, a lot of girls are interested in the game, the problem is their first encounter with other players in the game tend to leave an unfavorable impression (ie, they meet a lot of geeks). If they are introduced to the game by someone who is normal they can have a lot of interest. Most girls love to paint the figures, and the idea of Sisters of Battle appeal to some.

    Just gotta get them started the right way

    Yeah I&#39;m mad, insane whatever you want to call me. But I&#39;ve been playinning 40k for god knows how many years by now. And the Sisters were never my first arm, in facta army of mainly girls kinda put me off from playing them. I&#39;m the typical Guard player that&#39;s moved on. As for the geek thing well I&#39;m not the one to be called normal either . I think the reason I liked warhammer is because I like war&#33;

    im not saying you are a geek. But is is true. If i tell someone i play warhammer i get a look that says: <_< what a geek. I don&#39;t look bad my self if i may say so but it is the hobby thing that makes ppl geeks.

    But it is nice to know that girls also play warhammer (hell, my girlfriend even toled me that even she is interested :blink:
