Does your Order have an Iron Hands-like attitude towards the conscripts, i.e., "You [conscripts] are here to fight and die, tying down the enemy defenders while the REAL SOLDIERS [Sisters of the Order] do what is necessary"? (See 'Wrath of Iron' for a clear understanding of relationships between the Iron Hands and their allies.)

No offence intended if that's not the case. I just thought gunships and battle tanks are more critical additions to the Sisters' armory, and had trouble fitting in conscripts who are NOT there as meat shields.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)
Sisters of Battle+ Fenrisian Beer- Inhibitions- Sanity= Trouble! (Order of the Blazing Heart Rocket Punch Pimp Magnet She-Wolf)

 

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' 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.

 

Reasons to use the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think the Librarian Dreadnought needs Furious Charge AND It Will Not Die to beat down a Chaos-worshiping punk and his Defiler, while a Stormraven needs a Vanquisher cannon to beat down this punk's Heldrake.

Oh they're totally meat shields...or, as I like to call them, "self-mobile 5+ save sandbags".

Chaos players complaining about goodies in the vanilla codex is hilarious to watch. It's like Bill Gates complaining that the blue-collar worker down the street won 500 dollars in the lottery.

I have really got to stop talking myself into list changes two weeks out from a GT...
 
This is Saturday's project, almost completed:
 
Saturday's Project
 
Flamer Doms excel at killing Tunits (where x<=3) but it just doesn't cut it against Primaris marines in cover. So it's time to swap them out for their heavy flamer totin' Retributor kin. I'm hoping they'll be better in a Repressor (which, truthfully, everything is better in a Repressor).
