Sisters of Battle – Killteam Rules v1.0 (8th Edition)

Hello everyone!

It’s been quite a while now since Warhammer 40k Killteam hit the stores and some friends and I love playing this game. Unfortunately, I’m not a man of patience and I really wanted to field my Sisters of Battle into the dark and grim battlezones of the far future.

So we decided once again, to go with some house rules. And today I’d like to present the first version we came up with. Most rules, weapons and tactics are based on the already integrated kill teams and so we didn’t experience any bigger problems yet, but as usual, these are all house-rules and propably not yet balanced perfectly.

The backbone of every killteam are naturally the Battle Sisters, but the Adeptus Ministorum is on their side, supporting with some fierce close-combat forces.




The Sisters have access to the classical armoury of the Imperium and there will be few surprises. But what more to desire than the trinity of Bolter, Melta and Flamer?

Point Values


No kill team without a price. As for most of the units in 40k Killteam, the costs are similar to the Index/Codex books, just slightly reduced during testing. The weapons though, have totally different values and only time will tell, if the prices above are fitting to the other kill teams. (While once again, we heavily relied on the Adeptus Astartes costs)

As every other kill team in the game, the Sisters of Battle have their own set of tactics. We took a good selection of the already integrated tacitcs of other teams and are confident, that this will be balanced well enough. (Eventhough new tactics could be more fun … perhaps in the future)




The Canoness is the classic HQ choice for every Sisters of Battle army and therefor may not be missed in the killteams of the 41th millenia. Its a cheap choice and a flexible commander to use.



The Legatine is a new HQ option, we already included in our regular 40k games.

The Legatine is among the highest ranking Sisters in any Order Militant of the Adepta Sororitas. The most skilled of warriors and the greatest spiritual leaders the Sororitas possess, they inspire great devotion in those that follow them and are political powers in their own right in the Imperium. Most Legatines go on to serve as a Canoness Preceptor, Prioress or even the Canoness Superior of their Order.

And this finishes the rules of the Sisters of Battle for Warhammer 40k Killteam. Let me know if you like these rules. And if you tried them out on your own, let me know about the results!

May the Emperor be with you

  1. Great article. Ony thing that bothers me is that you gave stats and cost for plasma gun, but noone can have it. Otherwise brilliant


  2. Would you mind sharing the templates for these rules? I’d like to try my hand at making my own Kill Team faction (Adeptus Ministorum) and was wondering how you made your rules


    1. Hi Octavian! I used Photoshop to create the sheets, copying and modifying some scanned documents. If you have access to a PS or a similar tool, I can try to make a cleaned-up version for you.
