Blessed banner and allies.

Post by Arnathos » Fri Feb 13, 2015 11:46 am

While reading through the Adepta sororitas book I noticed the Blessed banner on the command squad. Re-rolls for morale and such are pretty ok, but then I saw the +1 A for all friendly models within 12". Now I love using big blobs of guardsmen to do my combat for me, 40-50 dudes with power axe sergeants, and suddenly that 40 points for the banner seems like a pretty good deal, with re-rolls for morale to boot!

I was thinking of the following:

Cannoness
Rosarius
Book of St. Lou(pseudo-ATSKNF guardsmen? Yes please!)
Inferno pistol(because badass!)

Command Squad
3 Meltaguns
Sacred Banner
Sister Hospitalier(purely because the model is amazing looking)

Immolator with either melta's or flamers.


For troops probably just a basic 10ish squad of sisters, possibly in a rhino, then either Rets or an Excorcist as HS, depending on my mood.


I know this might not be uber cheese, but I am loving this concept! It will be around 360ish point minimum, not too bad. What do you guys/gals think?

If you're going to walk this path I suggest you make space for at least one Priest with Litanies of Faith - to give your unit Zealot and re-roll to Wound.

Well, priests will be there anyway, but I guess litanies of faith would be amazing, autopassing battle hymms makes priests a lot more reliable. Kinda bummed out the canoness is temporarily unavailable in yurp, which might mess up my plans quite a bit.
