Really like that they've gone for "select one" with that stratagem, it makes all builds of that specific squad viable.

Well, there go the castles. No more 4++ saves for vehicles.

Looks like a conversion rate of 1 command point for 1 miracle dice. Not worth it as far as I can tell, unless there are more powerful effects that require miracle dice to fuel.

2 CPs to turn multimeltas into inferior lascannons. Entirely reliant on the cost of the multimeltas IMO.

Litanies of faith - handy if a cheap item or character ability, don't see it as a relic.

Argent shroud - no

Martyred lady - two potentially useful abilities. Pretty much guaranteed 1-3 miracle dice each turn.

Good IMO, these abilities look useful but don't force you into boring optimal strategies. We don't want another Tau on our hands.

Really happy with that Retributor strat, properly buffs the unit regardless of weapon choice and doesn't mess around taking up three different strat slots for them. Both those Orders look useful too, though obviously Martyred lady is more generically useful.

Superior Lascannons actually, +1 rend +1 damage+melta at 18" is in my opinion better than +1 Strength and a little extra range.

That said, Ironhands are still out their with incredible lascannons and multimeltas aren't going to be competing with BASE lascannons after 2cp, they'll be competing with the BEST lascannons at 2CP. So yeah, they'll have to be cheaper.

It just means being forced into footslog is more likely. Especially with Retributors likely being more useful now.

If I had the choice i'd take my chances with the weapons that don't cost me 2 command points to shoot at a meaningfully shorter range.

But as sisters don't have the choice i'm wonding if there is a good way to get value out of them. Repressor bunker perhaps. For 2CPs it's a lot of text for not a lot of stratagem IMO.

The 40k facebook page explicitly said that the miracle dice are the acts of faith. Though as they often say they aren't the rules team.

People were saying Acts of Faith as they were, were replaced by miracle dice, not sacred rites. Which does appear to be the case, considering using a miracle dice to modify a roll is called an act of faith..

So how exactly do you "perform an Act of Faith" then? The Vessel of the Emperor's Will stratagem makes it sound like something else to me.

Love it! Lots to unpack there.

I like both of those Order Convictions. +1 to hit is lovely, extra Faith is shaping up to be good. Extra mobility is never a bad thing.

Beacon of Faith sounds like it's an automatic Faith per turn now, as opposed to the rubbish 4+ roll from before. Indomitable Belief takes a bit of a knock, but they mention that the Rod of Office will increase the aura by 3" and stacks with the Book... +6" on Auras is not to be sneezed at.

Litanies of Faith seems a little limited for a Relic? It does say turn, so that's a reroll on yours and your opponent's turn. I guess it depends on how many Faith you can generate. If it's relatively few, increasing the quality matters more. If we can absolutely spaff them out then rerolling a limited number is less useful.

Don't care about the 'replace a spent Miracle Dice' strategem. If it was 'gain back the one you spent' that would be great, as you could save the good rolls. But hey, it's a cheap dice.

I like the Retributor one, though. Caters to every build for them, and gives each one something they want. Would Argent Shroud HF Retributors work?

Perhaps the actual 'Act of Faith' is the process of swapping dice you would roll for the ones who's numbers have been decided?

I guess by using one of the miracle dice. So that stratagem would replace the one you just used.

Wording suggests it's "i'm going to use this 6 instead of rolling the dice". If it does turn out to be a replacement it'll be more powerful.

The more I think about it, the less impactful Miracle Dice are going to be.

Reason? I play Disciples of Tzeentch and you start the game with 9 dice in the bank. I often spend 4-6 of those in turn one, because if I don't I might not get much of a turn two or any turn three at all. Most of those are spent on spellcasting, which are often quite powerful in AoS, especially for Tzeentch.

Sisters are starting with maybe 2-3 at the start of turn one, depending on choices? And they don't have psykers handing out 4-6 mortal wounds per power. So Sisters don't have good synergy with this particular mechanic.

One dice if they go first. Possibly an unseen stratagem to start with D3 more.

To date we've not actually seen anything that inflicts mortal wounds. It was one of the things they couldn't do in the beta dex either but you'd have to think there will be at least one stratagem in there somewhere.

I hope Penitent Engines can both use Miracle Dice and explode when they die. Because combining those two will be very fun.

Apples and oranges. The usability of the dice is very different. Sisters have A LOT of d6 damage and d6 shot weapons they'd be very useful for, as well as things like overwatch and invul saves.

Also, correct me if i'm wrong but I'm pretty sure destiny dice can't be used in mortal wound rolls so how are you spending 6 in one magic phase? Especially if going second? Failing spellcasts isn't really something Tzeentch worries about.

Arcos and penitent engines will almost certainly NOT have the AoF rule.

As far as I'm aware, we don't know how many Faith the Sisters will start with; the only information we have is on how to gain them. So maybe it's 9 again. Maybe it scales with Batallions like CP.

But even if we start with very few, it seems like Sisters have a much easier time generating them and we might not have a cap on the amount we can store.

As for having no synergy, that's just daft. Anyone who rolls dice has synergy with the mechanic, let alone a faction with D6 damage weapons available to every squad.
