    since i cant make a bloody poll i wanna know what you guys think. should SOB be able to field IG and Space Marine tanks? if so what ones?

    PS: my opinion they should at least get a Leman Russ....weve got enough(we being the IG...of course there is never anything as too many tanks )

    Sister Famulous is an option that allows you to take one squad of IG. Can this be a tank? I dunno. But it's a possibility.

    when I first started playing 40k a year ago, I kind of thought the sisters should have any tank the space marines had. Now I kind of think that that doesn't really work. The sisters could use more tanks, but they are a troopy army, so it should probably be a transport. What we neeed is something with armor, but not something with long range weapons. Sure we have the excrosist, but I think the sistesr are more of a close fire army. If they stumble into the 24" range, we kill them with mass bolter fire, and cleansing flame if they get closer than that. I dont think a lamun Russ would be the sisters of battle style

    What we need is a Land Raider. It fits, it would fill a spot we desperately need, and it would easy to make some fiery Sisters Land Raiders. I see an Immolator turret, two sponson-mounted Heavy Flamers, an autocannon, a twin-linked multi-melta, and a storm bolter.

    the problem with simply handing space marine stuff over to the sisters is that space marine stufff is usually strictly for the marines only, especially when it comes to things like terminator armour and landraiders as these are ancient and arcane things and well i dont think the marines would just hand all that over to a bunch of nuns with guns.

    what would be more appropriate however is that the sisters get to use chimeras as transports and the option of a leman russ(any variant) as a hvy support choice. the sisters are after all closer to the guard than the astartes afterall. predators could also be a viable option for a hvy support choice.

    Tanks are for use in battles'on the battle field, it does not fit with SoB which are essentially an internal security force, they are not designed to fight battles. Against a large force such as an IG regiment that has gone heretic, the IG would respond, SoB are about quelling mobs, tanks are not needed, on the other hand APCs which protect their occupants against smallarms fire are a standard must, so IMHO sob should have the unlimited access to rhinos they used to have but not to MBTs or Tank Hunters (no land raiders or predetors)

    Well as for the Land Raider, it was explained in the latest White Dwarf that the LRs were all recalled and to be used by the Space Marines only! Explaining why our dear little SoBs can't have 'em. I do agree that tanks shouldn't be part of their but they should have some heavy transports which brings this question:

    Anybody know the stats of the Repressor? It sure looks like a reinforced Rhino with a kick ass dozer blade but I just have the pic for info.

    My wifes sisters have a Vehicle Design Rules "Absolver", (land raider crusader model, Forgeworld Multimelta immolator turret sisters decor on the sides etc etc, all weapons single rather than twin linked, option for 2 flamers mounted under the side turrets (not yet used), it has the targetting upgrade (BS4) moves 10 sisters, and can lay down 32 shots in a turn, cant remember the exact points but somewhere in the region of 380.

    Fluff wise it IS NOT a land raider (it just looks like one) its a specialist sisters tank for use in larger batles very sisterly, heavy armour, lots of bolters, multi meltas, sister hanging out the top etc etc, huge points cost but it is death on tracks to just about anything

    Obviously it costs more than the land raider and gets no machine spirit rules or anything, but it supposed to be an ultra rare heavy sisters tank. Works fine for me (till I face it)
