Hello all, about to start an SoB army now that they're finally plastic. Want to be good and not buy more than I can paint and field at once, how is this as a starting point? I'm not 100% stuck on Bloody Rose, though I like the idea of blending people in melee with a bunch of crazed nuns. I haven't bought anything yet, so if there are major missteps here to start with please let me know!

You want Blessed Blade over Power Sword. But a Chainsword is fine on Bloody Rose Canoness too.

Otherwise, there's nothing wrong with this planned army as a starting point. Especially if you have a custom scheme in mind...

I don't think an imagifier is a bad thing for a melee army either, since you could slap +1 strength on it, a resistance to -1 ap weaponry (-1 cp but a nice bonus) and even a second warlord trait on it (-1 cp.) IF your imagifier is "quick to anger" and your actual warlord cannoness is "righteous rage" you can stack that on her with a blessed blade .. and on a sister character beside her with the beneficnece (bloody rose chainsword relic).
This gives you TWO melee beatsticks, who are both +1 strength, +_1 attack, another +1 attack (bloody rose) and have special weapons.

I don't remember the diff in price to a repentia superior offhand, but I believe it might work better -- she is only buffing 1 unit of 4 sisters, the imagifier buffs the army.

As allways, take my SOBattle advice with a grain of caution, my sistes army has not hit a table yet!

Imagifiers are definitely worth the 45 points (in general too)

If this is meant to play for a while at exactly 500, it's a good start, but I'd start modeling up a second Canoness and an Imagifier too... I'd run two versions of this list, one with each of the elites. In both cases, downgrade the Missionary to a Preacher, add a chainsword Canoness (the Bloody Rose relic chainsword is top shelf), and add an Imagifier as well... you'll want all those to go to 1000, and their buffs will make this whole army hit harder. +1S and +1A on top of +1A and -1AP are worth it, and this last wants to get close anyway.
