The Emperor protects!

So Saturday found the Sisters on the battle field against the men of the Cadian 55th.  1500 point game against a mechanized opponent didn't feel like it was going to end well.  It was bloody and brutal to say the least.  4 objectives, spearhead deployment.  The sisters took the field with a cannoness and celestines in a repressor, two squads of sisters one over sized at 17 members and one in a rhino, both with heavy flamer and melta.  a seraphim squad, a dominion squad in an immolator and of course an exorcist.

When you have nothing left, hunt tanks.

The game came down to turn 7, with a draw.  The sisters....all 5 of them holding on for dear life.  We had three sisters left from squad one, one veteran sister left from squad two, both squads holding on to objectives for dear life.  the last member of the team left, a really really pissed off seraphim who spent the later part of the game tank hunting by herself.

early in the game squad two's rhino was destroyed causing them to walk.  We did manage to knock out the vendetta mid game giving us a bit more breathing room.  Mid game also saw the command team actually fail a moral check and run off the board edge 5 inches from them at the time.  The seraphim took big losses to the imperial guard veterans who disembarked from the burning vendetta, only to be driven down and killed like dogs in a sweeping advance made by the lone surviving seraphim.  She would spend the rest of the game tank hunting, and destroying one Leman Russ in the process.

Three tanks, and mortars...pray allot
It was a brutal brutal game, and I made some huge mistakes, my opponent was robbed of a well earned win by the grace and luck of the Emperors light.  As they say the Emperor protects, and he likes me best.

Fires of Battle

Tonight the Sisters took the field this evening with the loyal men of the space marines to scour the field of battle clean of the scum of Choas and their Ork slaves.

What you see here is the start of the bottom of turn 5. It is the forces of Ruin's turn to go. Two squads of sisters and one of their rhinos hold the center line and the objective. The red blob in the crater is the Khorn Bezerker squad who just had their rhino blown up from under them by the sisters and their melta. The exorcist lays immobilized and missing its rocket launcher. This would be the most significant loss for the sisters that night. Against all odds, the Sisters only lost 4 of their number in the final charge of the bezerkers before the game ended. Two in the shooting phase and two in close combat. We even managed to kill one of them in the process. All of this accomplished with out spending any faith points. Of course they would have been wiped clean come turn six.

Lust is a sin!

I am in lust with this amazing Sisters army. I hope i can build one that's half as amazing.

In an effort to make sure the Marines stay on the painting table I dusted off the sisters for a few games. They did pretty well for an older codex with limited options available. Nothing spectacular today but the Order held its own against a bad deployment on my behalf and my opponents stealing the first turn away. I have realized I need more exorcists, mine has not managed to really do any damage but as a fire magnet it saved allot of other units from the hail of fire it brought down just by its presence. I also need to move the battle squads around on the board better, so time to save the pennies.

Celestian Honor Guard

Well I got a base coat down on the Celestian honor guard for the sisters of The Sacred Order of the Maid of OrlĂ©ans.  This will form the core of the squad, with a Veteran Sister and two flamers making up the rest.  I wanted to go with the helmeted troops so that I could paint the core helmet white and the visor gold making them stand out from the rest.  The rest of the girls in the army will be bared headed where possible.

Core Argent Shroud

Here are the miniatures that my wife J painted about a decade ago. She had originally chosen the Argent Shroud as her convent. Gold guns denote Celestians, black guns denote Retributors, red guns denote "regular" troops and HQ.
