FTN Episode 316 – Sisters of Battle Codex Review – Sister Act 1

FTN small square

Hi all, here is part one of our Adeptus Sororitas coverage.  There is a LOT to digest in this book.  Much of the codex is pointed pretty aggressively meaning you can get a lot of it on the table.  Do the t3 frames pack enough punch to hold their own in the meta right now?   That remains to be seen.

Hi everyone.,

Ricky and Paul run down the basics from the Sisters of Battle codex up for pre-order right now.  The dex has been out a few weeks with the limited edition box set that dropped recently.  This week the masses can get their hands on this holy book along with a host of new models.

The Battle Sister starts at 9 points and honestly, for value I think this is the only kinda maybe in the whole book. Everything else comes in with modest point values, including tanks like the Exorcist.  I don’t mean that things are ‘too cheap.’   I think the point values reflect the low toughness values and die role dependencies from the army.  I’m saying this untested.  I have not faced or played the new Sisters yet so I really want to know what you guys thing.

Please please please check out the new Forge The Narrative objective markers. These things look awesome. Ordering a set is a good way to support one of our sponsors AND the show. Find them here.

New models IN PLASTIC is what a ton of people have been waiting on and they have certainly does these models justice.  Each model brings dynamic poses with tons of interesting features.

My favorite so far is the Exorcist.  I like this even better than the Trial of St Katherine.  It looks tough and has rules to match.  Rocking three of these things in year’s past was something people did and you should expect to see it again.

Thank you and Enjoy!

Forge the Narrative is mostly a Warhammer 40k Podcast. Each episode is about an hour long. This ideally gives you something neat to listen to on your way to work, or on the way back home. Maybe you can even listen while you are painting or modeling!

Please follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

FTN mostly focuses on 40k, but again you will see in the first few episodes we take a severe deep dive into nerdom. These have been a blast to record and I hope they help pass the time for you.

Alternatively you can subscribe via your own iTunes, and it should update our podcast when we post a new one.
