They have no genetic enhancements, although bionics are not uncommon and juvenat treatments are used to keep the most experianced soldiers fit enough for battle.

In adition, there might be a suppernatural element to their survivability.

On the tabletop any sister can have an invulnerable save (3++ or 2++). In fluff terms, some believe that this represents litteraly getting shot with a multimelta and emerging unharmed due to divine protection. Some say it represents something far more subtle, like a shot that really should have hit missing by an inch.

Personally, I like the full-on 'your weapons cannot harm me for the Emperor is by my side' explicitly supernatural version, but there is no official ruling.

Looking for a friendly wargaming club on the Isle of Wight? Drop me a line.

i think its more because they are women, and as we know they are always right, so if you shot them and they say you missed, then you missed, its just how the universe works.

One thing to note is in the book faith and fire their armour also has some elements fit into it that can be utilized aas weapons and survival equipment.
