Valorous Hearts and Coteaz: 9th Edition, 1,996pts


Recommended Posts

So this is probably a kind of an awkward list. I wanted to fit in as many of the semi-playable SoB models that I already have into a 9e Valorous Hearts list. (i.e: Hospitaller, Arco-Flagellants, Retributor Squad, assorted cannonesses etc) This is a list meant for casual to slightly-competitive play; since I’m still very new to Wh40k. Anyways, I have been messing around with it for a few days and I'm not sure if it even makes sense anymore.

Pretty much I’m looking to buff the Arco-Flags with Coteaz, buff miracle dice with Repentia Superior's Heroine Warlord abilities. Heal woulds made on Triumph with the Hospitaller. Anti-Phsycher and invuln. buff with Cannonness. And have the Imagifiers, and Preacher, stabilize all other units within 6″ (and 9”) w/ ignore AP-1 (AP-2 for Valorous Hearts.), +1 Attack War Hymns, -1 Chaos Leadership abilities.


I still am figuring out all the moving parts involved with Triumph, so I have yet to take those abilities into account. The Rhino is for transporting Sisters Repentia, Repentia Superior, and the Preacher to board objectives early.


Anyways, I'd love your input - do you see any glaring issues? suggestions? Is it playable in a casually competitive way? Thanks!

Looks like a fun list, but it might be a bit low on bodies to protect your firepower and grab objectives. What exactly is your gameplan?

Personally with valorous heart I would take 9-10 man Retributors to protect the multimeltas with some ablative wounds. same maybe with the dominions, although their is a point to be made for two squads with cheap stormbolters. I think using the triumph is better with a footslogging army all ready to move forward. If your army does that than your exorcists can get tagged and blast does not work in combat, so they need babysitting from a couple screens. So I would either drop the exorcists, or make room elsewhere for more bodies. For example dropping the immolator and Coteaz/arco's for more sisters. Or accept it will be less effective and just enjoy your fun army :yes:. I personally love the looks and smashiness of arco's, but they get gunned down very easily. The 5++ from the inquisitor does help if you get it off though, it's a decent little combo to keep them alive longer.


Also: the white dwarf rules for inquisition got superseded by psychic awakening Pariah. The things you took can still be taken but have different names.

Thanks for your input! I'm definitely not against dropping the exorcists for more sisters. I'd like to keep the inquisitor, and the arco's, just because I was gifted a whole box of 11, and even though they aren't superstars they are still reasonably functional. My game plan with katherine is to splash a satellite detachment of bloody rose repentia and seraphim and use the benefits of pass saves and guarantee charge to gain objective control. Mining miracle dice, use -2 armor penetration and invuln-buffs with the help of imagifiers. Push the the rhino and triumph mid-board for objective sweeping and follow up with the valorous hearts and dig in on board control. The vanguard attachment would probably look like this:


Bloody Rose Vanguard – 3CP


Celestine – 170


Preacher – 35
Repentia x9 – 135
Repentia x9 – 135

Dedicated Transport

Rhino, storm bolter – 78
Rhino, storm bolter – 78


with secondary objectives of domination and phychic ritual. but that being said, i've only just started learning the game, so far it's been a lot of poking around on the forums, goonhammer and youtube.

Thanks for the heads up, I went back and got more acquainted with the inquisitor stratagems and wow - this guy is kind of a powerhouse. 95 pts doesn't feel as outrageous anymore, I'm kind of surprised i was able to pick him up for only $15.00 on ebay.

I love inquisitors, fluff wise mostly, but I also like to bring one to games. They can be very nifty little toolboxes, and I plan to field one with Arco's too (I love the Arco models, the old as well as the new ones). So keep me posted how it works.

Your bloody rose spearhead looks solid I think, and can do a lot of damage in the right place when used carefully. Depending on the opponent the repentia might benefit from one of the imagifiers to get to strength 7 to kill T7 vehicles. Though they will probably tear through one of them with S6 anyways.
