Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hello, i am thinking of buying a witch hunter army and was wondering if anyone has any advice on what i should buy (I currently play as tyranids and was flicking through my friends Wh codex and noticed they looked pretty good) I am wanting to base it mostly around SoB and i dont have a great amount of money to spend (Possibly around Â£50 sterling once ive bought the codex) Any advice would be great. Thanks.
There's plenty of threads on this in this section of the forum... So if you read through the titles over the first few pages for appropriate threads, you'll probably find lots of advice already.
You need 2 Troops and an HQ, so generally you'll need 2 boxes of Sisters and a Canoness blister to get started. On the limited budget, why not just pop for 1 Sisters box, and don't buy anything else until that is painted - you can judge how you like painting them, and if you'll be able to "hang" with doing a whole army of them, AND you don't get a whole pile of unpainted tin laughing up at you, intimidating you.
I was looking at the thinfs to buy and thought, on my limited budget, would it not be better to get blister pack of battle sisters (can go in groups of 5-10 and come in blisters of 3 at £6 per vlister) The models work out at the same price and i can make 2 squads of 9 with the canonsess and then stretch my udget by £2 and grab some sister repentia with a misstress (I checked the thread on them and it said friendly battles are the only real good place for them, my tyranids will be my tourny army so i thought theyd be nice)
Not sure I quite follow - but keep in mind that minimum squad size is 10 for Battle Sisters.
Battle Sisters (3 random models)
The vast majority of the Orders Militant is made up of Battle Sisters. They are well disciplined and highly devoted to the Emperor. Their greatest strenght is their superb weapons and armour. A Sisters of Battle squad consists of between 5 and 10 Battle sisters. A blister contains 3 random models.
I made a mistake and was thinking maybe 2 sets of 6 for this group They are on the site and are in the troops section.
Well - that's why you need the Codex. The catalog description is WRONG! Superior plus 9-19 Sisters is the basic Troops choice.
Ah ok... i will go get the codex tommorrow
Thank you very much for the help and advice you have given me.
May i ask, Which imperial guard is it that may be included in an army of Witch hunters? is it the shock troops? And do i have to buy the Ig codex aswell or are they inluded in the witchhunters/is it allowable to just print the stats after typing them up from my friend Ig codex since im only using 1 type of troop.

Storm Troopers are part of the list - Troops, in fact, and are included in the 'Dex. You can also have Allies, which is also covered in the book, but will then need the relevant codex - IG, Daemon Hunters, or Space Marines.
