On this page: Sisters are updated into an army that's worth more than the armor paint the Grey Knights use them for.

Overall Rules[edit]

  • Faithful [X]: A unit with this special rule contributes X faith points to to your Faith Points total. Additionally, in every assault phase where Force weapons are used against a unit containing a least one model with this special rule, roll a d6 after charges are declared but before any blows are struck. If the result is 4+, then the Force weapon is considered a Power Weapon of the same type.
  • Shield of Faith: Models with this rule have 6+ invulnerable save.
  • Witchhunt: Weapons with this rule have Poisoned (4+) and AP 2 against Psykers.
  • Righteous Rage: Every model in the unit has Hatred USR.
  • Angelic Visage: The unit may re-roll failed Tests of Faith and failed invulnerability saves granted by Shield of Faith.

Faith[edit]

  • At the start of each of your turns you gain a number of Faith Points equal to you Faith Point total.
  • At the start of each of your opponent's turns you gain a number of Faith Points equal to you Faith Point total halved (rounded down).
  • At the end of every turn the number of Faith Points you currently possess is halved (rounded down). There's no limit to the number of Faith Points you can possess per turn.
  • Faith points are global and can be used for Acts of Faith. To use an Act of Faith you first have to spend the indicated amount of Faith Points, then you may perform a Test of Faith which is a simple Leadership test. If the Test of Faith is successful the described effects occur. If the Test of Faith is not successful nothing further happens. In either way the faith points are spent.

Global Acts of Faith[edit]

Aside from where stated otherwise the following Acts of Faith can be performed by all units with the Acts of Faith special rule. You may only perform a Test of Faith in the stated phase.

  • Hand of the Emperor: Costs 1 Faith Point. During either player's Assault phase, you may perform a Test of Faith before to hit rolls are made. Models in the unit gain +1S and +1T for that assault phase, but cannot strike above I2.
  • Divine Guidance: Costs 1 Faith Point. During your shooting phase or either player's Assault phase, you may perform a Test of Faith after to hit rolls are made by your models, but before rolling to wound. For that phase, your weapons gain the Rending USR.
  • Light of the Emperor: Costs 2 Faith Points. At the beginning of either player's Assault phase, you may perform a Test of Faith. For that Assault Phase, that unit gains the Fearless USR. If the unit contains five models or fewer, they gain +1A. If this Act of Faith succeeds while the unit is fleeing, it immediately regroups with no morale checks required.
  • Spirit of the Martyr: Costs 1 Faith Point. During your movement phase, you may perform a Test of Faith before moving the unit. Until your next movement phase, models in the unit gain the Feel No Pain USR. If they already had Feel No Pain, it is improved by 1.

Sororita Warlord Abilities[edit]

Instead of rolling on the General Warlord Table in the Warhammer 40k Rulebook, a Sisters of Battle Warlord may roll on this table instead.

  1. Deep Faith: The warlord has its Faithful value increased by 1. (e.g. A Canoness would have Faithful [3].)
  2. Beacon of Hope: Once per battle, you can use an Act of Faith without spending Faith Points and without performing a Test of Faith.
