Just to leap in and prove I was there before the bandwagon arrives, I have recently taken possession of a Sisters of Battle army for 40k. Now some of you will know that 40k is not my favorite game system and I do still have a number of issues with it as a game system – but I have always loved the fluff and background of the 40k universe.
It is for that reason, and the ease of getting a game of 40k compared to a game of EPIC, that I have recently plunged into 40k – now collecting Steel Legion Imperial Guard, Sisters of Battle, and a mixed Inquisition force, each of around 3,000pts.
I have gone for quite a retro theme with this army, using the old style Rhinos to provide a bit of Gothic flavour to the army, while limiting myself to only sisters to draw a greater distinction between this army and the Inquisition force I am planning.
The army consists of:
Lord Inquisitor Karamazov
3 x Cannonesses
3 x 6 strong squads of Celestians
2 x 17 strong SoB squads
2 x 10 strong SoB squads
2 x 6 strong Retributor squads (1 w/ 4x HFlamers, 1 w/ 4 x MMeltas)
1 x 5 strong Seraphim
4 Immolators (2 HFlamer, 2 MMelta)
