The last two Sisters armed with Multi-Meltas...it sounds like in 8th they will be mobile enough to use again.





And some extra shots of the Avenger.



There is a little silvering of the decals, so I will be touching them up in the near future, but next up is an army shot with the entire army.

Thanks Dysartes, yes to Sisters Superiors in the Seraphim squads would make perfect bodyguards.

Going to work on the last of my Elysians next, finish that army and then perhaps Guard or Eldar...with the Eldar I would have an end-point like my Sisters, Orks and hopefully Elysians will have.

Thanks Dysartes.

Now something a little different, a last pair of battles in the old edition:

So I had a couple of battles with my group's resident Tau player. One win and one loss over two battles at 1500 points.

First battle was Purge The Alien with a Hammer and Anvil Deployment. Tau had first turn and with his 1500 points he brought a Riptide with two Shield/Missile Drones, Commander in Suit with Bodyguard and six Marker Drones, two full squads of Firewarriors with all the fixings, an Ion Head, a full Broadside Squad with six Missile Drones, a squad of Pathfinders and an Ethereal for the Feel-No-Pain.

Some photos of the first battle:






These show some of the initial deployments, mostly from the Tau perspective.

What you see in my deployment are the two Exorcists and Retributor Squad (hidden in the ruined building), Canoness with command squad is just in front of the building, three Sister Battle Squads in Rhinos, and an Immolator with Multi-Melta (the transport for the Retributors). My Dominion Squad and Seraphim were in reserve.

Well the Exorcists did yeoman's work and surprisingly the Heavy Bolters of the Retributors did great work as they were just in range of many of the Tau units. My Rhinos were just targets for the Tau weapons and their squads did not get close (although the blasted out hulks made excellent cover - never forget your mission). Dominions did what they do best, take out enemy tanks. Canoness Command Squad was only a glorified target as everyone tries to grab the quick Slay the Warlord victory points.

Save your Exorcist shots for the Riptide and Tanks first, Crisis Suits only make good targets when their Drones have been removed, otherwise they are ablative wounds...especially for Command Squads with the boadguard Shas'vre being characters for 'Look-Out-Sir'.

More shots as the battle progressed.




Here are some Tau Pathfinders moving forward with their scout move to get those Marker Lights in range.


These Broadsides are nasty, with the Drones serving as cannon fodder.


A shot of my Retributors in cover.

Here is the first turn or two as the Sisters try to push forward with Rhinos. I needed to get to the Tau and draw them out otherwise they would remain in cover and snipe away at me for Victory Points.


You can see my Canoness and her Command Squad have used their Faith to get the maximum distance and reach a crater to avoid Tau fire. Already one Rhino is a smoking ruin and is just a crated near the Exorcist. At least the Tau were focused on the transports instead of the Heavy Support tanks.

Next turn and the Canoness is all alone and my other Sisters are starting to bail out. This was due to my failing every reserve role. However the Riptide has taken a lot of Exorcist fire and has failed several saves and the invulnerable ones from the nearby Ethereal...then a reactor failure takes it down to one wound.

Now the Seraphim have finally arrived and only one Rhino remains, but every Sister's squad other than the Canoness is still in the fight.

Finally my reserves come on and the Tau left flank collapses as the combined fire from Exorcists and Retributors destroys the deep striking Tau Command Squad and the Seraphim burn through most of the Broadsides with all their fire.

On the Tau right flank the Dominions have taken out the Ion Head and the Riptide actually feel to small arms fire (a lot of small arms fire).

However I did not have the same success in the second battle with our resident Tau player. For the next battle I tried a different army with a Living Saint instead of a Canoness Command Squad. The Living Saint would accompany a Seraphim squad.



The set-up was diagonal making for a critical area of building ruins right in the center.

The Tau built a firebase situated in the main buildings on their deepest portion of the board.



I built a refused flank set up with most of my vehicles set up behind builds on my left with the intention of trying to hammer his right, which was his very deadly XV-88s with their missile Drones and was isolated enough that his Firewarriors would be too far away to assist, although those two Hammerheads looked ominous and could drive out to cause trouble.

Tau had first turn and used it to do as much damage to me as possible, whenever a Rhino was destroyed the Sisters squad would bail out into cover or start moving to objective sit. The real pain was my one of my Exorcist exploding in spectacular fashion (watch out for those Railguns from Hammerheads).

I stuck to my plan despite the heavy loses as my army was mostly on the table and was concentrated still. Unfortunately I failed a difficult terrain roll and trapped one Rhino before it got off the line. My forces advanced and removed a few Missile Drones from the XV-88s.

Then it was Tau turn two and disaster struck...all his reserves came on and a Riptide and Command Squad landed right where he wanted them...in front of my left flank assault. He hit with everything...I mean everything and destroyed Rhinos or in the case of one squad that had disembarked earlier he wiped them out. His Riptide eliminated the second Exorcist.



My turn and things did not look so good, my reserve roles only brought on one Seraphim squad...and they scattered. Basically to the worst possible spot, out of range of their Bolt Pistols but in range of a whole load of Firewarriors.



Perhaps a better view of that scattering is here.



My first unit of Seraphim were going to die, it was just a matter of when.



My main mechanized units (well not any longer) too the battle in the ruins to the Crisis Suits...but the cost was horrendous leaving on the remnants of two squads in the ruins holding on to objectives.



The Tau took their revenge by destroying the Seraphim drew all the Firewarrior pulse rifle fire and the XV-88's and their drones as well...but they ignored my one remaining Rhino still in play (albeit an empty Rhino). Not only that, there was another unit of Crisis Warriors who had not come on yet...although with the Riptide moving forward there was not much chance I would have any Sister's left to hold the objectives and their victory points. Revenge for the Sisters did come with my Dominion Squad in their Immolator arriving to find two Tau tanks in short range. The Seraphim led by the Living Saint came down...despite deviation they were close to the Tau Firewarriors in one building who had massacred their sisters a turn before. Even better was the lone Rhino accelerated across the table and slammed into the XV-88s in a tank-shock attack...a failed leadership roll and the XV-88's ran off the board!



In the shooting phase, out came the Dominions and their Melta Guns destroyed the Ion gun Hammerhead, the Immolator with it's Multi-Melta removed the Railgun Hammerhead. The Seraphim and Living Saint's fire destroyed a Firewarrior Squad. Now the Tau were faced with the possible loss of their objectives.



A short ranged firefight was raging around the Tau objectives and the Firewarriors even moved out of the second building to get close enough for extra rapid fire shots. Now normally I would always take a short range firefight with my Sisters, however the dice were no landing my way as the Riptides extra shots, the Crisis Suit teams fire and the Firewarriors combined to destroy the Immolator, Dominions, most of the Seraphim and let the Tau control one and contest the other objective.



My counter charge against the Crisis Suit team was short by an inch and thus the game as the Riptide moved in to finish off the last of the Sisters holding the objectives on my side of the board.



Victory for the Tau and a loss for my Sisters. Although by the time all the points were counted it was really close because I had held or contested a lot of objectives before attrition took it's toll.

Apologies the photos are a little grainy, when you are caught up in the action and taking shots during a battle sometimes the photographer has to duck for cover.

Cheers,

CB

Great job, Captain! The army has looked sharp in all it's smaller incarnations and looks that much more awe-inspiring when arrayed for battle as a whole. Plus, from the looks of your vehicle configurations, it should play very well in 8th edition! I'm only sad to hear that it's done... moving on to other things?

EmberlordofFire8,

I seriously doubt it, our group has been playing since Rogue Trader days. Besides in 8th we have only been playing with Force Levels and the points are never even there and we have had close games in all but one instance.
