40K List Writing – 1850pt Sisters of Battle

Posted on

The Witch Hunters codex is no more. I am saddened as I loved that codex, but in its place we have the White Dwarf codex for Sisters of Battle.

There is a lot of backlash against this codex across the blogosphere. I earnestly believe this is a backlash against change, and just the same mindless rabble surrounding every codex release.

I have both parts of the codex. Did they lose stuff? Yes (of most note, the Inquisition). Did they gain stuff? Not really. Do they play the same? Hell no.

But I am sidetracking myself here. Suffice to say I’m not all doom-and-gloom about this codex, and rather keen to field it later this year at a tournament.
