Ok, I just got a unit of 8 Repentia + Mistriss + Priest, and am looking forward to doing some seirous damage in CC. So, my fellow Witch-Hunters, how do you use these lovely laides of death?
Thanks again guys and gals
-10 works good.
-Deployed behind a wall of Zealots
-They don't really target anything, they're lucky if they're at full strength when they reach the enemy.
-Kind of a risk, not that good if your opponent has lots of things to shoot.
Repentia have always been a fairly safe investment for me. Usually I have a squad of 10. About 3 make it into close combat and, that's usually enough to destroy 2-3 squads of whatever my opponent is fielding.
The trick is to avoid close combat units with good initiative. khorn berserkers will eat these girls up like nobodies business.
You might think that they wouldn't have a chance to EVER be affective with their bad save, but remember they are fearless, and fallback TOWARDS your enemy.
P.S.: These girls eat heavily armored tanks for breakfast.
Ugh..that probably explains my lack of success. I usually charge the biggest, baddest thing. :mad:
I guess I should look to destroy quantity not quality.
Hey Shiver, long time no see eh?
Thanks for your adivce guys. I'm gonna be using them in two days, so I'll give you a progress report. My squad is as follows:
1 Priest (mmmm... rerolls to hit)
Like I said, I'll tell you how they go.
..Can't wait. Lord Y.
Good luck in the name of the Emperor! :lol:
They kill dreadnoughts too.
I have never faced a SM player who has chosen a heavy flamer as a weapon on his dreadnought (and I beleive that is an option?) so the Repentias may lose a few in HTH but then they open up that armored coffin like a can of Pringles.

My SW Dreadnought has a Heavy Flamer attached to its Dreadnought CCW. However, this was an upgrade from a Storm Bolter.Originally Posted by Montford981
Perhaps this should be in another thread, but do you guys prefer Arco-Flagellants or Sister Repentia? Thanks.
ARRRRGH!!!Originally Posted by Pierced53
these units are too different to compare quickly, you or somebody else should start anougher topic, as to not clog this one up.
Now back to the Repentias.
I plan on using them in one Big squad, as in about 15 or more, for many reasons:
Survivability and pwnability most notably.
although the Fall Back towards the enemy, I rather have them hoof it in one groupfor more pwnage for when they reach thier target.
I also tend to treat everything like a speed bump, so these could end up going against anything in the way
Just to throw this in, I prefer Repentias over Arco-Flagellants mainly because I think Repentia Sisters have more style.
Of course this is a strongly individual point of view - it depends on whether you concentrate on a Sororitas-Only army or take everything that the army list is offering.
