Sisters of Battle Defend against the Foul Eldar
The League has moved up 750 points and I totally revamped my Sisters of Battle List to mitigate the problems I had with the league difficult terrain special rule.
The Seraphim are on the third objective and in the same quarter as Steve's Direavengers and Fire Dragons, contesting his quarter. I think I have a Minor Victory by holding the only uncontested quarter but according to another unwritten league rule, that I only found out about when it came down to me winning a game, only a troop choice can claim a quarter. The League rules says the only unit in a quarter claims it not a troops choice and since table quarters are not in the 5th edition rule book It came down to a ruling by one of the shop managers so the minor victory becomes a minor loss. The one good thing is that 6th edition is here and the League rules will have to be revamped any way.
I was really pleased with the Seraphim's first outing but I still need to play them more to get a better feel at how they will run. Uriah and The Battle Conclave walked into the Eldar guns but I will give them another chance. If I can manage to get them into assault range of the enemy I am sure they will have a better show. The Exorcist kept me in the game. I can see why other Sister players I have read online swear by them three of them for competitive play. I guess I need to build the second Exorcist I have and pick up a third one. I am still waiting to get my hands on the 6th Edition rulebook and the Sisters FAQ before I really start working on my 1000 point list.
