Is it possible to field an effective pure sisters army (mechanised) in 1000pts (or under) and still be able to.. win?

It's physically impossible and the universe would cease to exist if you'd actually win.

Thanks for asking.

Hohoho, quite the joker.....

no, really- mechanised sisters just dont seem to have enough in 1000 or less points.

probably better in tactics

i dont see why not, 2 sob squads with meltguns and hf in rhinos, a cannoness and an exorcist wouldnt do to bad, and that cant be more then 1000 points

Why wouldn't they?

Your basic Battle Sister is probably the cheapest power-armoured troop-choice in the whole game. Should give a major step up on objective games right away as well as affording you the points to add a trick somewhere else in the FOC to surprise your enemy.

Sisters have plenty of room to play around in low points.. more so than arguably Space Marines.

You'd be pushing it at 1000 points, but anything less than that and it wouldn't be worth taking :( Sisters come into their own when you reach 1500, but are ideally set at 1750 - 2000.

They´re tough and cheap, I can´t see why they wouldn´t work. I´ve faced them in 1000 pts and they had plenty of stuff to keep me busy!

My normal SOB army is 1000 points, and I have fielded them plenty of time at 750. I have only lost 1 game with them (apart from a training game and an allied one), and win most of them without any trouble.

I'll be honest, I love the concept of SoBs, but I'm left scratching my head as to why anyone would ever take SoBs as a troop choice. The vanilla SoB is not faithful, so you have to blow a bunch of points to make them so and at the end of the day they're still sort of ... meh. For my current army, I took two five-man squads of stormies and put them in flamer-only Chimeras. After that, it was all Celestians in Rhinos and the Canoness (with Celestian retinue) in an Immolator.
