Default Me vs Sister of Battle

Can any of you give me good advice against these girls?
I just asked a guy to game against me, thought he would play IG because he normally plays them. But now he chose to use his Sisters :-\, I accepted of course (stupid me, you must know your enemy in order to defeat them). Hope to get some good info, special rules (if they have them), etc.

It will be two weeks before I play him because of the exams and I still have to paint a model.

Thanks and Greetz

A Tau player has to watch out for the Sisters, they are able to lay down a devasting amount of fire power with their bolters...also pay attention to the exrocists as well...I've lost my Pathfinder squads to that...bah...

Maybe Mal will help you out more than I can... ^-^

Ah...no... : Bolters are only str. 4 so no way in heck that it can take down a HH from the front, the same with the DF...
What is an exrocist? An exrocist is a Sister of Battle Tank that is able to shoot D6 Missiles at Str ( ??? Sorry, I don't know the strength) with a 48" range...that's all... ^-^

OK, looks like pretty heavy guns to me :-[, so my plan to stay as far as possible won't work as well as I thought.
I'm going to take as many of the crisis and broadsides as possible to negate either:

1) Them getting close
2) Theire armour saves
3) me playing static, OK not for the broadsides but at least the crisis will jump -> shoot -> jump back >

We'll also have decent cover to hide behind :-\ only problem with this is that no model can see over it (it are mostly buildings)
-> Any idea what I should do with the terrain (I'm responsible for the scenery and the board)???

I've got a table of 72" by 48", and indeed it's large ;D, but that let's me decide how much we're going to use of it.
??? Can you play this table and both have to start on a short table edge ??? If so this would be great a table that is just perfect for my broadsides to shoot across.
