I'm posting this topic because I need to know why I should choose a sister of battle army over say Space Marines or Imperial Guard.
Tell me their pros. What is so special about them, apart from them being all woman armies.
My wife loves the fact that they allmost all have human faces, she loves the detailing on the armour, and for some bizarre reason the pious Nuns with guns thing attracts her to them :huh:
My wife hates Space marine because they look to Robotic, and my space wolves are savages. (mine nearly all have nice big ork axes) My wife likes the looks or the orks because they are cute and the imperial guard because they are human, but they look to much like average toy soldiers to her.
As for gaming advantages some people bemoan a lack of range firing with the sisters but my wifes retributors with multi meltas and heavy bolters are lethal on a 4x4 board, that coupled up with the multimelta immolator and an exhorcist, and its bye bye dreadnought before he gets close to close combat and even the mighty land raider has been known to dissappear without trace .
I dont believe any army has an advantage as such, they just have their own "styles"
Pro: MASS BOLTER FIRE
Con: low range, dont get into assault with space marines EVER
thats just what I think is the most important pros and cons.
They have Power Armor and a Bolter, They have great Fluff, They do lack the missle launchers and Lascannons But they get two assualt waepons in a squad and the serphans are nasty. Get to understand Faith cause that can be nasty too
they have a base cost of 10 pts and have a +3 armor save, best pro i can think of, they also look cool and have lots of hvy weapons
