Thats my missus' favourite saying at the moment.
I've taken some time out from the hobby to do other things (read: Spend even longer on the PS3 completing games id promised myself to complete, for one)
In the interim, I managed to get a game in against my now arch nemesis, Kris.
Kris...normally a Grey Knight player, decided to use Dark Angels.
My very first, maiden outing with the Sisters, was a Capture Objectives game- Annoyingly, I didnt get a chance to take photos...
To cut the story short, I lost. Sisters are just more fragile then I had imagined. Im used to Space Marines (Massed mech Marines) or Guard (Massed...Mech Guard..) or at a push I have been known to use all infantry.
This is what I took (from memory)
2 Plasma Gunners
in/ Land Raider
Cannoness, with all the toys and tricks- I scoured Heresy Online (www.Heresy-online.net) for lists and ideas, but as usual myself being typical, I ignored the general advice to go with themes.
By which i Mean...
Dominion squad w/ 4 Melta's, in an Immolator (6 sisters)
Retribution squad- 2 Heavy Bolters, 2 Multi Meltas (8 lasses!)
3 Squads of Sisters, with a mixture of 2 x Storm Bolters, 2 x Flamers and 1 with one of each
Rhinos to carry 2 of the units
Seraphim squad with 2 hand flamers, and Superior.
Oh, and the Cannoness had a full unit of Celestians to wander around with.
So, my thoughts to continue apace is this.
The Land Raider rocks. Its just gorgeous. My camera refuses to take a decent photo of it, so i'm still quietly whispering into the ear of my boss to steal Wayland's mega camera to get photos.
Seraphim....faaar too weak. Ridiculously weak. I double flamed AND pistolled a unit of Devestators, killed 4 (of 10), then CHARGED, and even with the vow to increase initiative...I lost combat. And fled off the board.
Vindicare managed to kill a terminator, and stun a dreadnought. That was it. waste of points.
The Exorcist is evil.. d 6 str 10 ap1 shots?! Yes please... Im dropping the Seraphim, and the vindicare, and buying 2 more.
Besides that, My mistake was getting caught in combat. All 3 units of sisters were eventually wiped out by his Assault Marines, and when they were gone, only my noble Land Raider stood between my objective and the enemy.
And the Inquisition...baah... he managed to force three leadership tests with his psychic power, but against SM...its rather pointless.
So, back in the box they went, whilst i try and source new parts to complete 2 extra Exorcists.
I think I also need to make a firm decision on an army to COMPLETE, and get on it. On my table is the following:
Cygnar Centurion (needs painting)
Land Raider WH (needs final painting)
Night Lords converted squad (Needs undercoating)- ((Project X...))
Ork Megaforce (still on sprues)
Terminator Assault Squad (relictors army still needs to actually get done)
I wish there was a vote option on here, because im torn as to what to actually stick with short/long term to get completed!
Anyway, will stop waffling.
New update due VERY soon.
