Sisters of Battle Rules
Faith has changed a lot. Gone are the requirements to roll over the number of models, instead Acts of Faith are activated on a D6 roll of a 5+.
Each unit that can use faith roll a D6 every turn and this is the number of faith points added to the pool of faith points which is regenerated each turn with no carry over for points not used.
Most importantly is that there are no generic acts of faith. Each unit have a particular set of Acts unique to them. So for example Battle Sisters get to re-roll to hit, whilst Sisters Repentia get to always attack even if slain before they would normally be able to strike.
Each Act of Faith can be used in any phase where it is relevant so a squad can use a Faith point to re-roll to hit in the shooting phase and then another in the assault phase to do the same.
As before. Can take a wide variety of equipment. Possibly can take a bodyguard of Celestians.
May take a retinue in the same way an inquisitor can and may draw from a large number of follower types including many from the GK codex. Allows any unit they lead to re-roll to hit and to wound in close combat.
10-20 models per squad.
Transport: Rhinos and Repressors(?) or Immolators(?)
