Hi folks, I was thinking of starting a small Sisters of Battle army. But I was wondering, how hard are they to actually play as? Because I would rank myself as about 7/10 on how good I am at Warhammer 40k. But I really like the look of them.

If you recommend it, could you try and suggest a basic 500pt list so I can try them out?

Cheers,

I wouldn't recommend playing sisters of battle at 500 points. They don't seem to do well there. Sisters of battle are a hard army to learn (but not as hard as eldar or dark eldar). You need to know when to use certain acts of faiths. Once you've learned the army though they can be pretty tough and hard to beat. Their not the best army but they are pretty good.

Ok thanks Necrosis. By 500pts I meant a small 'test' army to see if I like them or not. I suppose I could buy the codex then use count-as......

cheers,

I would wait till the new dex comes out as we have metal models and they let the sisters down before you get onto the shitty 2nd ed codex.
Long time sisters player.

My son plays SOB and does very well but I do suggest as others have that you wait a bit and perhaps borrow a codex and play a few games "counts as" to see if you can handle them first. The metal models are very nice and I love the Penitent Engines (very Gothic) although they are a bit of a pain to build. Good Luck!
