    Power Armour

    is it just me or is the adepta sororitas power armour, alot thinner then regular space marines, yet it still offers a 3+ save, not that it should be changed or anything
    and does anyone know where i can find some fluff on why sisters of battle dont have any terminator armour??? i remember reading it once before but i forget things..

    and dont anybody correct me on the spelling of "armour" where i come from thats how its spelt and not armor..

    yeh well yeh thats it really.. cheers

    It is probably because they don't need all the gadgets and gizmos in the Space Marine armour, Space Marine armour monitors life signs, gives drugs, and a huge amount of other stuff. Also, the Sisters of Battle aren't 7 ft. tall, genetically enhanced killing machines (even though they do kick butt). The Space Marines just need a lot more incorperated into thier armour.

    hmm i'd have to agree with kireguy.


    SoB are not genetically enhanced. Thus that is why they are slower and weaker in toughness than a space mareiun

    Duh, only uneducated colonials spell it armor.

    Anyway. Terminator Armor is RARE. So RARE that only Space Marine Chapters are gifted it, it takes a long time to make and probally even longer to figure out which chapter gets it. Beyond that, I doubt without a LOT of genetic manipulation that a Sister could even use the suit with all the intergrated systems it has.

    The reason given in the codex about the 'weaker armor' is because the SM's armor is self supporting, its got the equivilent of muscles, also the SM are given the Black Carapace, it lets them connect to the suit and use it like a second skin. SoB armor is just the protection element, not the powered element, pretty much SoB are more normal than SM!

    I'm sure a Guardsman could hold a bolter.

    The recoil might be another story, though.

    On the other hand, a lasgun would have extremely little to no recoil, and operate better in most conditions, which is probably why they use it.

    SoB Power Armor is much more solid and supporting and IG armor(Flak I think). Also the SoBs get SM like helmets so it improves thier accuracy, the IG use the Heavy Bolter on a tripod. They can still hold it, the recoil may due some damage but it would be possible for and IG to hold and shoot and HB, good idea for conversions......

    Funny thing is, it seems most players tend to not use helmets for the girls.
