Codex Sisters of Battle 2nd Edition - Free download as PDF File .pdf) or read online for free. 2nd edition 40k codex for Sisters of battle. You must possess a copy of the Warhammer 40, Rulebook and Warhammer 40, Codex: Sisters of Battle in order to use the contents of this publication. This led to the creation of Codex: Adepta Sororitas: /tg/ 7th Edition. While it's true that there is already a /tg/ Sisters of Battle codex (which you can find here), that.
On occasion, it has even been known for them to lead Wars of Faith. Personally, I'd combine them - giving each unit a page to itself, combining fluff and rules, none of this flicking back and forth nonsense! Powered by WordPress. However, Celestians believe that such weapons are as nothing compared to the power of their faith. These warriors are ranked beneath the Canonesses of the Orders Militant and each is directly responsible for the conduct and training of her squad.
As every other kill team in the game, the Sisters of Battle have their own set of tactics. We took a good selection of the already integrated tacitcs of other teams and are confident, that this will be balanced well enough.
Eventhough new tactics could be more fun … perhaps in the future. The Canoness is the classic HQ choice for every Sisters of Battle army and therefor may not be missed in the killteams of the 41th millenia. Its a cheap choice and a flexible commander to use. The Legatine is a new HQ option, we already included in our regular 40k games.
The most skilled of warriors and the greatest spiritual leaders the Sororitas possess, they inspire great devotion in those that follow them and are political powers in their own right in the Imperium.
And this finishes the rules of the Sisters of Battle for Warhammer 40k Killteam. Let me know if you like these rules. And if you tried them out on your own, let me know about the results!
Great article. Ony thing that bothers me is that you gave stats and cost for plasma gun, but noone can have it. Otherwise brilliant. Like Like. Thanks for the hint! Would you mind sharing the templates for these rules? Hi Octavian! I used Photoshop to create the sheets, copying and modifying some scanned documents.
If you have access to a PS or a similar tool, I can try to make a cleaned-up version for you. Dude this is great, thank you for putting in the work so we can play. Very keen to try this out. Thanks a lot! Glad if you enjoy it. Actually not, they usually wear a Master-Crafted Carapace Armour. Seems that Power Armours are really reserved for Sisters and Inquisitor s and such. Hi Oxide7, reasonable question.
In the end, I would simply prefer a heavy armoured warrior with a big shield when it comes to advancing through dense city-areas. More units would be awesome. My main criticism with Kill Team is the lack of diversity especially with units. Too many armies with just a single unit choice. A question: Act of Faith. Do they need the presence of a Simulacrum to be used? If not, you suppose a unit can perform an Act of Faith without spending a CP or dice throw?
Please clarify. For the rest, superb work! But if it seems to powerful for you, feel free to adjust that. Thanks again! I, still me. Here you have an excerpt of the rules pertaining the Act Of Faith that now is treated differently as every Act of Faith has a Devotion Value to roll against: If your army includes any models with this ability, you will start the battle with 3 Faith Points, plus 1 additional Faith Point for every 10 models with this ability in your army rounding down.
These can be spent to attempt the Acts of Faith listed below. Each can only be attempted once per battle round, and you must spend one Faith Point each time you do so if you have no Faith Points remaining, you cannot attempt an Act of Faith. To attempt an Act of Faith, select a unit in your army that has the Acts of Faith ability and then choose the Act of Faith you wish to attempt. Otherwise the test is successful and the Act of Faith takes effect.
If successful then until the end of that phase, roll a D6 each time the selected unit suffers a mortal wound. If successful, the selected unit can be chosen to fight with twice that phase.
If successful, the selected unit automatically passes Morale tests that phase. Hi Michele, thanks for sharing. I wrote an article about some minor tweaks, but in the end, the new Act-System is not really fun.
Nice work but the models feels underpriced. They should cost 10 points like a marine scout, 11 the retributor and the superia less T and S but better saves and scout has transhuman physiology and tsknf.
You can field 9 models paladin leader with storm shields in a game in which dealing mortal wounds is not easy, Deathwatch can field 5 storm shields and are still 1 W models. They should cost 13 if a Deathwatch Veteran is 19 points.
Great work! The Daemons are eventually vanquished with the arrival of the 4th Brotherhood of Grey Knights. Upon their victory, contact with the Imperium is re-established and it is discovered that every Battle Sister on the planet has been killed. The slain are officially elevated into the ranks of honoured martyrs in the eyes of the Sisterhood. The attackers are held back only due to the unyielding determination and sacrifice of hundreds of Sisters Repentia.
However, their martyrdom buys time for the Battle Sisters to open the vast cathedral gates. The greenskins are slaughtered shortly thereafter as two dozen Penitent Engines rampage across the battlefield, staining it with Ork blood. The enemy is put to the torch as dozens of Immolators and Land Raider Redeemers burn a path through several war-torn cities.
However, the allied forces are saved when Saint Celestine appears, falling upon the Chaos horde like an avenging angel. The Living Saint carves a bloody path through the baying horde towards Lord Gralastyx, before plunging her fiery blade through his tainted heart.
With the death of Gralastyx, the Chaos horde is banished into the Warp, but of Celestine there is no sign, for she has vanished as mysteriously as she appeared. As Tyranids pour through, Praxedes confronts a monstrous Hive Tyrant. The Battle Sisters waste no time in pressing the assault, determined to avenge the death of their beloved leader.
This section details the forces used by the Adepta Sororitas — their weapons, their units, the special characters that lead them to war, and the ancient relics they carry. Each entry describes a unit and gives the specific rules you will need to use it in your games of Warhammer 40, The Army of the Ecclesiarchy section refers back to these entries.
These are collected and explained here, in full, for your convenience. Special rules that are unique to particular units are presented in the relevant entry instead. Other, more common, rules are simply listed by name — these are described in full in the Special Rules section of the Warhammer 40, rulebook. So does absolute belief in the Imperial Creed allow the Sisters of Battle to perform the seemingly impossible upon the battlefield. Yet miracles are not to be relied upon as a matter of course.
At the heart of the Imperial Creed is the belief that the divine Emperor relies on his followers to create their own salvation, but also that if the situation is sufficiently bleak, he will intervene to deliver his true servants. Some units are noted as having the Act of Faith special rule in their entry. A unit with the Act of Faith special rule can attempt to use its Act of Faith immediately before it acts during a phase; i.
To do so, the unit must take a Leadership test. If the test is failed, nothing happens and that unit cannot attempt to use that Act of Faith again for the rest of the battle.
If the test is passed, the Act of Faith is successful; unless stated otherwise, all models in the unit will immediately gain a special rule until the end of the current phase. Unless stated otherwise, a unit can only attempt to use an Act of Faith once per game and a unit cannot attempt to use more than one Act of Faith in the same phase. A unit can only attempt to use an Act of Faith if it is entirely comprised of models with either the Act of Faith or War Hymns special rules.
For example: Such is the power of their belief that the Emperor will protect them that the Adepta Sororitas can shrug off the most severe of wounds and resist the witchcraft of enemy sorcerers. Instead, the blood of these martyred heroes only strengthens their resolve, the sacrifice inspiring them to great acts of heroism.
If a model with the Martyrdom special rule is your Warlord, and that model is removed as a casualty during the battle, all friendly units wholly comprised of models with the Act of Faith special rule automatically pass all Leadership tests until the end of your next turn.
When generating Warlord Traits, an Adepta Sororitas Warlord may either roll on one of the Warlord Traits tables in the Warhammer 40, rulebook, or roll on the table below. The Warlord has the Fear special rule. The Warlord has the Rage special rule. The Warlord is a shining beacon of faith, a spiritual as well as a military leader who inspires intense devotion in their warriors. A Canoness is the overall commander of one of the Orders Militant, a shining example of purity and dedication of purpose.
Each is a veteran warrior of many hundreds of battles who has risen to her position through a combination of strong leadership, shrewd tactical genius and sheer overarching faith in the Emperor. When the Ecclesiarchy sounds the call to arms, a Canoness boldly leads her warriors into the fray, refusing to take one step backwards whilst her enemies still draw breath.
Under their command, the Sisters of Battle have crushed the foes of the Imperium across the galaxy. As a result, a Canoness inspires intense devotion in her Battle Sisters, leading them from the fore whilst reciting the great hymns of the Ecclesiarchy. Infantry Character. The Passion: A Canoness leads her Sisters through the chaos of melee, striking at their foes with a speed and hatred born of holy fervour. One use only. Power armour, bolt pistol, chainsword, frag grenades, krak grenades.
Having earned their scars and proven their merit on scores of battlefields, the Celestians of a Sororitas Command Squad are often given the honour of carrying the sacred standard of the Order into battle, or of safeguarding a revered relic — perhaps the bones of a long dead saint or an icon believed to have been touched by the Emperor himself — during the course of a campaign.
A Sororitas Command Squad may also be accompanied by Sisters from other, non-militant Orders, who act as advisors and specialists to the Canoness.
These Sisters are commonly from the Orders Dialogus — skilled orators whose amplified voices can embolden the spirits of nearby troops — and the Orders Hospitaller. Dialogus and Hospitaller are Infantry Character. Act of Faith, Shield of Faith, Stubborn. Endless Crusade - Limbs do not tire when the spirit of the Emperor moves them, but find fresh strength in the righteous work to come. This Act of Faith can be used in your Assault phase.
Adeptus Ministorum Priests often accompany the Orders Militant into battle. On occasion, it has even been known for them to lead Wars of Faith. There are many different titles within the Ecclesiarchy, from high-ranking confessors and lowly preachers to famed missionaries, but their role on the battlefield is the same: Confessors are extremely powerful and influential leaders within the Ecclesiarchy, and wherever they tread, a bodyguard of Battle Sisters is rarely far away.
Some confessors prefer fiery speeches and rabble-rousing to incite a population into religious fanaticism, while others are more subtle, manipulating the heads of guilds and other organisations to form coalitions against the enemy.
Confessors are also charged with the training of more junior Ecclesiarchy priests, of which preachers are the most common rank.
Missionaries often encounter hostile alien races and long-lost civilisations of Humanity who refuse to willingly embrace the teachings of the Imperium. Independent Character, War Hymns, Zealot. War Hymns: A model with this special rule can take a Leadership test at the beginning of each Fight sub-phase in which he is locked in combat. If the test is successful, choose one of the following war hymns to immediately take effect.
The Ministorum Priest and his unit re-roll all failed armour and invulnerable saves until the end of the phase. The Ministorum Priest has the Smash special rule until the end of the phase. The Ministorum Priest and his unit re-roll failed rolls To Wound until the end of the phase. Flak armour, laspistol, close combat weapon, frag grenades, krak grenades, rosarius.
Ministorum priests can gather a band of skilled bodyguards to assist them in the execution of their duties and heretics.
Even so, the Inquisition covertly monitors the formation of Battle Conclaves to safeguard the spirit of the Decree Passive, if not its letter. Crusaders are recruited from the honour guard of the Cardinals Crimson, an ancient and mysterious order of the Ecclesiarchy famed for its unflagging devotion to the Emperor. Crusaders dedicate their lives to asceticism and martial perfection, making them ideal bodyguards.
Arco-flagellation is a punishment carried out on those found guilty of a multitude of crimes against the Ecclesiarchy. Augmented with extensive physical surgery and mental reconditioning, their bodies are implanted with a fearsome array of weaponry and chemical stimm injectors.
Once activated, an Arco-flagellant turns into a berserk killing machine that is completely insensible to pain and beholden only to the priest who controls him. Though many Death Cults are Chaos-spawned, others are fanatically dedicated to the Imperial Creed and offer up those they slay to the Emperor — a payment of the blood-debt Mankind owes him. Death Cult Assassins have perfected the art of blades, which when combined with their deeprooted devotion to the Emperor and the Ecclesiarchy, makes them lethal and loyal followers.
Feel No Pain Arco-flagellants only. Uncanny Reflexes Death Cult Assassins only: Flak armour, power sword, storm shield. Two arco-flails.
Death Cult Assassin: Flak armour, two power swords. Celestians are the finest and noblest warriors of their Order — inspirational figures whose refusal to yield, even in the direst of situations, is legendary. The presence of such warriors does much to bolster the fighting spirit of nearby troops, and as such, the Orders Militant allow these distinguished veterans to bear devotional markings. The Sigil Sororitas is a commonly depicted symbol, worn either as a tattoo or as a badge adorning the front of helmets — an honour reserved for those Sisters who have performed with exceptional courage.
Only Battle Sisters who prove themselves to be exceptionally proficient in the arts of war may be deemed worthy of induction into the ranks of the Celestians. These elite warriors are deployed together in squads where their superior experience and skill at arms can turn the tide of battle. Amongst their number are those Sisters who once served as Dominions and Retributors, meaning that Celestian Squads are supported with the weapons and wargear necessary to face a wide variety of threats.
However, Celestians believe that such weapons are as nothing compared to the power of their faith. Celestians are fervent adherents to the Imperial Creed, shining examples of righteousness that many Battle Sisters aspire to emulate. Celestians harness this ardour in battle, and it lends them the strength to split the skulls of alien savages in a single blow and smite hideous Daemons back into the Warp.
Celestian Superior is Infantry Character. Act of Faith, Shield of Faith. Hand of the Emperor: Celestians call upon the Emperor to grant them the strength to strike down their foes.
This Act of Faith is used in a friendly Assault phase. Power armour, bolt pistol, boltgun, frag grenades, krak grenades.
Sisters Repentia band together into groups that seek redemption in the fires of battle, and they are led to war by a Mistress of Repentance — a harsh warrior who drives her charges onwards with a pair of neural whips. Although extremely rare, those few who return to the fold of their Order are held with great esteem by the Sisterhood.
Indeed, some Battle Sisters willingly exile themselves, finding fault in the smallest imagined transgression in order to join the ranks of the Repentia.
These Sisters are possessed of a righteous zeal that knows neither pain nor fear. They will die when the Emperor is ready to accept their souls, and not a moment before.
Mistress of Repentance is Infantry Character. Spirit of the Martyr:
