Orders And Faith by NicklausofKrieg Orders And Faith by NicklausofKrieg
the IG follow orders from their superiors in a chain of command, they fight to keep the peace and fight for the interests of the world's they're charged with and eventually for the entire imperium as a whole, orders tell them who to fight and when they fight they fight for their lives

the sisters, though they follow a chain of command as well, they follow the moral code of the imperial cult foremost, they can judge who is right or wrong, good or evil and that is who they fight, those who they deem evil and they fight for what they feel is right

Even if its not morally right in the first place. What if a sister sees something like a priest being completely corrupt not heretical and being such a non-heretical complete monster

The idea of a priest being completely corrupt but not heretical is contradictory and HERESY; THEREFORE THEY SHALL BE SUBJECTED TO THE BUSINESS END OF A FLAMER.

"The Emperor cares not to wether you look to your dog-tags or your Aquila, only that you look to Him in battle."

The dirty skeptic in me wants to say one fights because there's a Commissar right behind them while the other fights because there's the spiritual equivilant of a Commissar right behind them ;) But to hell with skepticism, this is cool!

Sometimes the IG fight 'cause there is a Commisar in front of them, like THE HERO OF THE IMPERIUM! Who was actually trying to get behind another group of guards that just got ate.

Ah yes, the unwavering warrior of the God-Emperor Ciaphas Cain: stoic and mighty soldier who totally isn't just stumbling accidentally into glory every time he tries to run away!

A warhammer on the left and a sword to the right, both instruments of the Emperor's wrath and yet so different in many ways...

No not the sisters, I refer to my dog. Silly thing was supposed to be making me tea and pie. >_>

all IG abilities seem to always involve ordnance like artillery or airstrikes while sisters use their massed powers of faith to conjure up some miracles here and there

stupid dog! it made you look bad!

Imprial Guard are soldiers of the Imperium while Sororitas are soldiers of the Imperial Cult

i think that's pretty much a good way of saying it

Nice contrast between the two forces: one is of planetary duty and logic, and the other is based on duty to the Imperial Cult and faith.

i wouldn't really say IG is all THAT logical, there's a lot of propaganda involved as well

the difference between the two is something like the difference between the Wehrmacht and the SS
