Games Workshop Posts Novitiates Rules for 40k

Kill Team is the skirmish version of Warhammer 40k. So, when models come out for Kill Team, it makes sense that players would go, "but, what about 40k stats?" That's what you're getting here. Games Workshop has posted them up for you to download now.

From the article:

Kill Team: Chalnath is available for pre-order on Saturday, and while the new Sisters Novitiate and upgraded T’au Pathfinders are duking it out in the killzone, you might wonder if they’ll be able to take their tiff onto the battlefields of Warhammer 40,000*. They absolutely can, and we have the rules for the Adepta Sororitas’ newest inductees right here.

Despite a relative lack of experience, Novitiates are just as accurate in shooting as their full-fledged Battle Sister comrades – but it’s in melee combat where they truly shine. By swapping their autoguns for Novitiate melee weapons, they can swing three times when charging, with a crucial extra point of Strength to put the hurt on the likes of Drukhari raiders, smaller Tyranid bioforms, and other light targets. Not only that, their charges become more reliable when fighting under a sacred banner.
