    Faithguard

    I realized that the Ordo Hereticus doesn't have marines. Xenos and Malleus have Deathwatch and Grey Knights accordingly but Hereticus only have wimpy SOB ;Y So I introduce the Faithguard.
    The differences between these guys and Deathwatch are:

    1.can include Sororitas from the following units: Battle Sisters, Seraphim (as long as rest of unit is on jump packs), Retributors and Dominion squads (don't know what those are exactly) at the standard costs of those units

    2.if all space marines or kill teams adding only Seraphim, can equip with jump packs for +5pts each

    3.can be given Razorback, Rhino, Land Raider, or Repressor (someone help me and give me occupational cap. for it?)(also if there are any other sisters transports tell me) as long as every one can fit inside.

    4. instead of Kraken bolts you get Purifier bolts which have these stats: 20"| Strength: 6| AP: 3 |Rapid Fire, for the same cost as Kraken bolts

    5. can trade captain for chaplain for free. chaplain has normal rules and has access to space marine armory

    other than that they use the GW Deathwatch rules. If anyone would be so kind as to either test this our or help me with the sisters parts that would be amazing.

    An interesting idea, but the reason why they only have Sisters of battle is because according to imperial law no man is allowed to take up arms for the church. It is a loophole that allows the SoB to exist and fight for the ordo hereticus.

    Yeah, as frozencore said the church is not allowed to have ment at arms, which they use a loophole to field SoB.
    Personally I think a better idea for a 'Faithguard' unit would be a single unit of Sisters in terminator armour or something like that.
    Here's what I came up with off the top of my head:

    Faithguard. 35 pts each

    WS BS S T W I A LD SV
    4 4 3 3 1 4 2 10 2+/5+

    Unit size 3-10
    Special Rules: Deep Strike, Faithful, Holy Hatred
    Equipment: Terminator Armour, Storm Bolter, Power Weapon
    Options:
    Any model in the unit may replace their storm bolter with a combi-flamer for no extra cost or a combi-melta for +5 points each.
    Any model may replace their power weapon for a power fist for +10 points per model or a chainfist for +15 points per model.
    Any model may replace their Storm Bolter and Power weapon for a Storm Shield and Power Weapon at no extra cost, or a Storm Shield and Thunder Hammer at +5 pts per model.

    I might just ignore that rule I am already painting my guys and they are already half painted. Thanks anyway. Any other suggestions as to where I could use them?

    You could always just use them as allied space marines or grey knights in game. Other than that you could make some fluff up that they are a chapter that has a particular association with a particular inquisitor or faction that they send their most experienced battle brothers along when needed.
    But fluffwise, there are no "men" who fight for the church - it is pretty much an inviolate rule of 40k and has been since the start - so don't be surprised if people call you on it - at least the fluffy players.

    Just use them as regular marines. Use the Allies rule to attach Sisters or Inquisitors if desired.
    Just say they are a really devout chapter with close ties to the Ordo Hereticus or the church.
