Another SorcererDave report, but this time it’s with some new rules (well, they were new when we filmed it). He managed to get his hands on the limited edition Sister boxed set, so I brought the wife’s Order of the Azurine Heart and ran them with the new rules. They went up against the Word Bearers once again, who also had some new rules from Psychic Awakening: Faith and Fury. After the last game, the Adepta Sororitas were out for revenge!
We had fun (of course!) and I think we played most of the new rule correctly. It was a very informative battle. We do have a bit of a chat about the new rules on display at the end of the game, but as a bit of a summary/mini codex review - the Sisters are good. They’ve got some tricks up their sleeve, they can put out some serious firepower and they can stick it out surprisingly well. The new miracle dice mechanic is huge. You will probably be generating them quite frequently, and there are plenty of chances to use them. High numbers make melta guns really scary for either a guaranteed big damage or the threat of an auto hit in overwatch. Lower numbers can be trickier to use, but passing morale is obviously a good use of 1s. You can also use 2s and 3s to just ensure a key weapon hits or armour save is passed.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the report, and hope you Sisters players enjoy the new book.
