^^^ I remember reading something about that no-helmet thing somewhere. I'll dig through stuff when I get home.


All you need is a little faith and a little fire.

According to Blood of Martyrs, sisters have to earn their helmets in combat. This is derived from the 'Sabbat-pattern helm' artefact from Dawn of War: Soulstorm, which took the standard Sisters helmet and made it into a magic item the canoness had to earn.

That's..... well, kinda what I'd expect from blood of martyrs by now, really.

Is 'Blood of Martyrs' that badly written? (I don't have the book.) It sounds like the Adepta Sororitas are all required to ingest stupid pills on a regular basis.


Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Blood of Martyrs was written by someone who had looked at a few Sororitas forums, played Dawn of War, and glanced at the Inquisitor's Handbook... maybe checked Lexicanum a couple of times.

 

I'm fairly sure you'll have come across my 'Civilian Bolters and magic eye lasers' rant a few times.

The guardsman is just following proper protocol. The sister's bolter is more valuable than the guardsman, so the guardsmen must go first to protect it. That's why guard infantry advances in front of guard armour.

 

And earning armour wouldn't be crazy... By sister standards... I mean they do decide not to wear any when they've been naughty... And swap out the most holy bolter for a big chainsword...
