The Vigilus Weekender started today, and we already got the first informations pouring out. Beside a lot of interessting news about new (and old) characters in the conflict and even a nice preview of the upcoming Genestealer cults, we also got a new Sisters of Battle Stratagem to look upon.
The Holy Trinity
Of course, Codex: Adepta Sororitas is one of the most exciting things about Chapter Approved this year, and we’ve had a chance to get an even better look at the rules. We’ll be previewing these in depth soon, but in the meantime, here’s another awesome Stratagem to tide you over:
While I’m hoping for more infos and potential reveals today, this is already an exciting piece of rules. The holy trinity is a really iconic symbolism for the Adepta Sororitas and simply stands for the use of 3 types of weapons – Bolter, Flamer and Melta.
While there is currently no real representation in the Index Imperium rules, I’m glad that GW decided to reference more of these “characteristics”. Even though I’m not sure if it will lead to more mixed up weapon combos. Personally, I like squads of full melta-power f.e.
But who knows, this bonus to wound rolls might help with your Alpha-Strikes and at least both flamers and melta weapons have a similar short range. Unfortunately, it won’t work well together with Burning Descent, which we saw in the last preview, since you still won’t be able to use your inferno pistols in that moment. And I don’t see a good reason to mix one hand-flamer and one inferno pistol into a Seraphim squad …
In any case it will help purge the heretics and isn’t that all that counts?
What do you think of this stratagem and are you already using mixed weapon squads? Let us know in the comments 🙂
May the Emperor be with you!
