  • Faction: His Noble Inquisition

So, I recently got my hands on a 3D Printer (I have the best wife) and I realized, looking around the internet, that STL files inspired by the SoB are very common (I'm guessing the rather long spell without new models had something to do with that.) It got me thinking that it might be time to start a new army and print a nice model or two for it to look unique and fancy. This led to a fury of list building and I quickly fell in love with Bloody Rose and my favorite models in the sister's line, Zeryphim. 


This list was the result:


Brigade (Bloody Rose):


No Org Slot:

Inquisitor Karamazov



Canoness - Warlord (Beacon of Faith), Plasma Pistol, Power Sword, and Rod of Office

Canoness - Plasma Pistol, Power Sword, and Rod of Office

Canoness - Bolt Pistol, Chainsword (Beneficence), Heroine in the Making (Righteous Rage)



6x Battle Sisters x5 - Storm Bolter x2



Imagnifer - Tale of the Stoic, Tale of the Warrior, and Venerated Saint

Preacher - Chainsword and Laspistol

2x Zephryim x10


Fast Attack:

2x Seraphim Squad - Inferno Pistols x2

Seraphim Squad - Hand Flamers x2


Heavy Support:

Retributor Squad x10 - Multimelta x4 and Armourium Cherub x2

Retributor Squad x10 - Heavy Bolter x4 and Armourium Cherub x2

Retributor Squad x10 - Heavy Flamer x4 and Armourium Cherub x2


Battle Plan:

Basic sisters exist to move up and take objectives. Heavy flamer and multimeltas move up to dakka things, escorting characters. Seraphim deep strike in to blast away or take objectives. Zephryim go on a rampage, hopefully supported by murder canones and/or preacher and/or imagnifer. If the Zephryim out pace them (which will no doubt happen often) then they'll make sure that the sisters and retributors are a pain to get close to.

-Ailarian, Hand of the Kind XXXI


"One unbreakable shield against the coming darkness, One last blade forged in defiance of fate, Let them be my legacy to the galaxy I conquered, And my final gift to the species I failed."

Bit late, but it looks fun to play and on theme. I'm guessing it's not meant to be a tournament list.


Small details:

1. You're missing the Zephyrim Pennant on the list as written and you definitely want one, especially if they Deep Strike.

2. It's probably worth dropping one sister in the Heavy Flamer squad and giving the Superior a Combi-melta. It would allow you to use the Holy Trinity stratagem for deep roasting hordes or as emergency anti-vehicle.


For a variation, switching out a Canoness (and probably at the cost of Karamazov) for Celestine could give your many jump pack girls some added survivability.
