2000 pts GK vs Sisters

Post by Rivan on Tue Dec 27, 2011 8:15 pm

Played a friendly game last Monday vs. a 2000pt Sisters army. This was the first time I would get to play a SoB army after they had their remake so I was pretty excited.

His list (from what I can remember):
Canonness w/ inferno pistol and eviscerator
Uriah Jacobus
5 Command squad: 2 multi-meltas, a standard, 2 bolters; immolator w/ TWL heavy flamer
9 henchmen warband (3 DCAs, 4 arco flagellants, 2 crusaders); rhino
10 Battle sisters (1 melta, standard/symbol, superior had PW and plasma pistol); rhino
10 Battle sisters (same); rhino
10 Battle sisters (same); rhino
10 Seraphim (2 w/ hand flamers; superior has eviscerator)
5 Dominion sisters (2 meltas, 2 flamers); immolator w/ TWL MM
Exorcist tank
Exorcist tank

My list:
GM w/ staff, incinerator, rad, blind, psychostroke
5 Purifiers (1 incinerator, 3 halberds, 1 hammer); RB w/ TWLLC
10 GKSS (2 psycannons, 1 hammer, psybolts); RB w/ TWLLC
7 GKT (1 psycannon/halberd, banner, 1 warding staff, 2 hammers, 2 halberds)
10 GKIS (1 psycannon, 1 incinerator, 1 hammer, psybolts)
LRC w/ MM
Psyfleman dread
Psyfleman dread

Mission: Seize ground (5 objectives)
Deployment: Spearhead
I win the roll off and gave him first turn. I roll for GStrategy and get a 1 so I make the GKIS scoring.

His deployment:

My deployment:


I'm not going to do a turn by turn. Suffice it to say that the game went pretty much according to plan (mine that is Razz ). The only thing that really annoyed me was my poorer than poor dice rolls. For my first 3 psychic tests, I rolled 3 snake eyes! I lose the GKSS justicar as well as a random GK (since I split them up) and self-glance one of my dreads Razz When his 10 seraphims opened up on my GKT w/ bolt pistols and hand flamers in 1 turn of shooting, I lost 4! I remember against my game vs. BT, I took 40 wounds and only lost 1 GKT. I guess the law of averages caught up with me. Thankfully, my rolls got a little better towards the end game. Some observations:
-I think the SOB got nerfed big time. The 4+ rolls to activate acts of faith is very iffy (even w/ modifiers).
-The cool thing is, all units have a 6++. That also rather annoyed me since my opponent was making a lot of them.
-I think it is quite challenging for SOB to be competitive especially vs. the newer codices. They just can't employ as much shooting as a shooty army like IG or Tau. And they're not really that tough in CC either.
-I really love Interceptors Very Happy

The game lasted 7 turns and this was the final lay out


Grey Knights: 3 SOB: 1

The new SoB codex if you can call it that was really a massive nerf.
I love the fluff and the models for Sisters but honestly the new rules are a total joke and a massive step backwards for the army.

happy for your win Brother Rivan.
I agree for the nerf especially with the faith points : in the former codex you could adapt the "faith power" with the situation : get an invul, advantage in cc or in ws... now everything is gone ... so imho with the nerf the army had lost its style and specificity.

Congrats on the win Brother!

How times have changed, who would have thought that WE would now be in the "new codex" catagory, and playing weaker dexes. GW really doesn't seem to be able to get their act together and have everything up to par at the same time do they Sad

With the power of faith, our weapons become shining instruments of deliverance that can cleave the mightiest daemon in twain. With the power of faith, our minds appear as slivers of pure agony to the daemon, driving into the wretched forms of those who would dare stand before us. With the power of faith, our words become commands that cause the daemon to cower and cringe in terror. I could meet my enemies unarmed without a shred of fear in my chest, for I know that the Emperor watches over me and guides my hand. So let them come. We shall show them what the power of faith can do."+++ (Brother Captain Stern)
