What can you guys tell me about Repressors?
« on: July 27, 2015, 10:14:42 AM »
Hello everyone!

I am considering picking up a couple of repressors for my sisters of battle army, I was most likely going to stick 7-8 Retributors with multi-meltas and possibly a priest inside and escorting it up the table with Dominions in immolators.

I was just wondering how you guys use Repressors and maybe have other ideas for using them,  please and thank you for any information!

I know this post is kinda old but what the heck. Repressors can levarge AV13 and 5 fire points shooting down a side (3,2,3 left middle right). This is pretty neat when used with Dominions, who have outflank. Suddenly there's an AV13 front armour tank in there lines full of melta guns THAT DONT HAVE TO GET OUT like they would for an immolator.

Try to line the up the repressor with the side armour facing the target so you can throw all your meltas out the side and top while facing its front AV13 toward enemy heavy firepower units ie las devs, predators, hammer heads, prisms etc.

The reason you take them is the 3,2,3 (8 ) fire points. Aka your Soriritas don't have to disembark to fire at full strength. Dominions love them & if you can get an Inquisitor with the Liber Hereticus, put Retributors in with him/her and use the Liber to get scout on the unit and their transport: Outflanking Multi Melta squad, who don't have to disembark for their AV13 front transport.

Finally they have a heavy flamer for tarpit roasting  ;D

Yeah, except good luck finding any models for less than $100 on ebay (the last 3 I followed were over $90).  Unless Forge World put them back on their site (which I doubt), you're going to have to convert them.

:(

It will most likely be a while before I actually get any repressors since I just bought a ton of sisters of battle. I will most likely end up proxying the model a few games to get to play around with it with out actually owning any. Yeah their model being taken off of Forgeworld doesn't help with me getting any too lol. Even immolators are hitting ebay pretty hard since they don't seem to be on the USA Games-workshop store either.

Here is a terrible quality image of my sisters of battle army, most of the models I got recently are second hand so I would like some tips on striping them of their paint. I feel the hardest part is going to be the vehicles, I think it is 2 exorcists, 3 immolators, 2 rhinos, and 3 Pentiant engines. So if any of you guys have dealt with removing paint from these kind of models please give me any advice you can offer?

Around half of these models I already owned, I just wanted to take a big picture with everything in it to show my friends. Sorry again for the poor quality, I might have to take a group of smaller pictures or a video later for you guys.

In australia i ise pinoclean. Its a disinfectant... i leave it them for 1 ir 2 days. Paint just drops off. Even good for plastic but only for 1 or 2 days.... anything more and it can damage plastic.

I'll have to see if we have anything similar to that in America but the process will most likely still be the same with soaking it for a day or two. Thanks a lot mcphro!
