When did the latter happen?

I think they meant to put some more weight on the fact that the Sisters of Battle are unaugmented humans.

The Grey Knights versus Sisters of Battle part happens near the end of the book. Granted, those sisters did have the advantage of numbers.

Also bear in mind that said book was published back in 2004, which might explain a number of the lore inconsistencies.

EDIT: Also, going to wait for the dead tree version of this.

I remember that but I always thought that the powered armor, SOB numbers, and an unwillingness to kill them were all factors in the scenario.

I don't see why people have trouble with a 6 foot (average) person wouldn't be able to do half of that to a 7 foot (average) person. Strength aside, sisters are/were pretty on-par with Marines speed and skill wise and Marines are not 12m giants, they're muscle bound basketball player size.

Whaaaaaaasaasa? Size irrelevant. A Space Marine is faster, stronger and deadlier even standing there naked with his bare hands than a SOB. They are the universe elite. Now add to that their power armour, again making them even faster and stronger, plus add to that Terminator armour making them walking tanks, then add to that they are freaking GREY KNIGHTS!

For shits and giggles. Get one Grey Knight Terminator vs one SOB mini. One on one dual using official rules and codexes. See if the SOB can last a single roll.
