Sisters of Battle Get Their First FAQ LATEST

Meanwhile, the Mortifiers had their squad a bit more costly in terms of power level, which to be honest, makes sense.

Questions Answered & Clarified

In the description, mortal wounds are treated as separate instances of damage (and is why they bleed over to other models in a unit). With that said, you can’t use a Faith dice to juice up your damage roll dealing mortal wounds because technically, you’re doing 1 mortal wound x-times.

Another big one is that you can CP your Faith Dice if you keep rolling poorly and have a heavy bank of CP. You probably won’t be doing this every game, but it’s a nice fishing ability to have if you really need to bank a 6 for a damage roll.

Sisters of battle wal horBe sure to read over all the changes for your Sisters before your next game! We will say that overall, GW did a pretty sweet job on this FAQ. There are no earth-shattering changes to the army that makes it operate completely differently. Of course, that could be because of the entire year of players testing the beta codex and GW listening to the response from the community!
