Adepta Sororitas rules revealed

The former 'Sisters of Battle' have been thoroughly overhauled for 6th edition, and the leaked rules from the new digital-only codex are now floating around the various rumour sites.  These seem to be agreed upon by everyone, so it's likely that these are accurate.

Overall the Sisters have been appropriately recosted and balanced and look to be a far more competitive option than they were with the old White Dwarf codex.  If only the metal-only models were a little more reasonably priced!

No more faith points. Acts of Faith are a no-modifiers Ld check that can be used 1/game to activate the act. Simulacrum points cost halved and lets the squad use their act 2/game.
Shield of Faith also grants adamantium will.
Warlord traits: Fear, +1 to Shield of Faith for unit, Re-roll DtW, Rage, 12" Stubborn Bubble, 12" Ld-for-Acts of Faith bubble.
Relics: Litanies of Faith (Auto-pass Acts & War Hymns), Cloak of Aspira (Re-roll Armor & Shield of Faith), Mantle of Ophelia (Eternal Warrior), Blade of Admonition (S+2, AP3, MC), Book of St. Lucius (12" auto-pass Fear & Regroup), Sacred Banner (12" +1 Att, re-roll morale, fear & pinning), Mace of Valaan (S+2 AP4, Flesh & Armorbane vs. demons)
