We now have the best look at the new Order Convictions (aka Chapter Tactics) of the Sisters of Battle. Get ready for 6 new legions of nuns with guns!
The Sisters of Battle are joining the fray with 6 new Orders and each one has their very own Conviction that they get. They are going to be able to really stack up the special rules on the tabletop once you start combining these with their traits, relics, and Acts of Faith. Prepare yourself now or you’ll get blindsided by these fierce ladies!
Valorus Heart – Stoic Endurance
6+ “Feel No Pain”for units with this conviction.
Our Martyred Lady – The Blood of Martyrs
Each time a unit from this conviction is destroyed gain a Faith Point.
Ebon Chalice – Daughters of the Emperor
Add +1 to Tests of Faith for units with this conviction.
Argent Shroud – Deeds, Not Words
Each time a unit with this conviction kills an enemy unit, roll a D6. On a 4+, gain a Faith Point.
Blood Rose – Quick to Anger
Add 1 to Strength and Attacks for units with this conviction when they charge, were charged, or performed a Heroic Intervention.
Sacred Rose – Devout Serenity
Morale Tests can never cause more than 1 model to flee from a unit with conviction. Additionally, they hit on 5+ for Overwatch attacks reguardless of other modifiers.
I can already see Stoic Endurance being a really “fun” ability to pair with their Shield of Faith. 6+ Invulnerable and a 6+ “Feel No Pain” roll… hey at least it’s not a 2++ re-roll I guess. I also “like” how they have one Order that gives them more Faith Points when they die and another that give them Faith Points when they destroy an unit. That’s not going to get confusing at all.
Just mix and match your Orders – hey, everyone else is doing it!
