This evening we are recieving the first words on what is coming out of the September White Dwarf Codex, Sisters of Battle. Apparently the original post was in French, and this is the translation.
Here is the original post in French Sisters Of Battle
Please remember that until we have it in our hands, these are still rumors, take with a little salt.
Some Info started to pop up from a French Forum (Warhammer Forum, source is Fenryll, post here, it's in French so be warned). At least one other poster have confirmed them.
- Overall some units are costlier than before but not by that much (Regular Sisters, Celestian, Dominion, Retributor).
- Basic Sisters are the only troop choice. They start at 9 + Sister Superior and apparently no free special/heavy weapons based on number (unlike SM tactical).
- Some are less costly (Repentia, Seraph but pistols are costly, especially the melta ones cost more than a Fist)
- Special character are relatively cheap, nothing above 120 pts, multiple below 100.
- Heavy weapons cheaper than before (MM cost cut more than in half, dear god the time it required me to understand that MF = Multi Fuseur = Multi Melta in French).
- Penitent Engine is indeed HS, 0-3 per slot, someone mentioned they seemed costly to him but since he didn't remember the old price he was not sure if they were truly costlier or cheaper.
Regular Sisters 12 pts each
Cannoness 75 pts base
Coffessor 55pts base
St. Celestine 175 pts
Repentia 90 pts 4 + 1 Mistress
