Anyway - I'm going to disagree with MCC and say that the Sisterhood would absolutely not ally with xenos, even briefly. Space Marines would, even the Guard, but it's just not in the Sisters' nature.

The Sisters are not fools and they are not idiots, but they are zealots, and their faith is absolute. They will never, ever compromise, never give on even the most insignificant matter.

Hold on if sisters of battle are willing to work with a heretical rouge pskyer then why not a xeno? Remember faith and fire.

I remember that book all too well... Ignoring for a bit that the story got buried under trivia and most of the characters were made out of thin cardboard, the Sister that did so was not only trying to find out about something worse, she wasn't so much working with him as holding him at gunpoint.

And she still ended up demoted, tossed out of the Celestians for her trouble.

I've been trying to forget it...

As to who they would or would not ally with, it rather depends on the situation and your definition of ally. If there's a demonic invasion, I have difficulty thinking that they wouldn't at least entertain a "we'll shoot you later" agreement with most xenos races, which is probably the extent of any cross factional alliance in the grim darkness of the far future.

Faith & Fire, if written accurately, would have been ten pages long. The moment she heard witchspeech in her mind Sister Miriya would have filled Vaughn with enough neurotoxin and/or boltshells to kill a concrete elephant.

Although the first time I read it I was willing to overlook that bit and give the book another chance. That chance was used up when someone burst into a Canonness' office waving a chainsword and didn't get his head blown off either by instinct or on general principle.

Yep, that's about the size of it. It's not an alliance it's... Target prioritization.

Yes, which serves to suggest that the Necrons aren't mindless automatons, butt conscious beings.

I guess they've gone too far with their diets, then. They look anorexic! :P

From some of the stories ive read andsome fluff in the codex it does show that even if they weren't mindless beings that they still have somewhat of a thought process capable of reasoning. Hence forth why they still have to take morale tests

I guess they couldn't blame the pants. :biggrin:


I want the next codex to make my 2000+ points of necron turn into 1000 so I have an excuse to buy the new shinnies :D

MadCowCrazy 04-14-11 05:35 PM

I own like 100+ warriors and 10+ destroyers, I'm hoping to get some plastic flayed ones as those are my favourite necrons :D
