So the idea behind this was to create a pure Sisters list with a a variety of heavy and special weapons capable of taking on as many threats as possible. The army advancing with AP -2 treated as AP 0, two tanks to provide some heavy support, and a Rhino transport to move which ever weapons are needed most safely to where they need to be depending on the enemy, and rounding it out with some Seraphim to hit from the flanks and provide fire support when needed. Did what I could to bolster their defense as the entire army advances and shoots anything that tries to get too close.

My only fear in reading this is one (1) imagifier is the thing on which your armies centrall strength depends. If you had a backup that would be one thing, but you don't, and you can't use the bodygaurd like functoin of celestians to protect it without having any celestians.

If I fought you with my army, I would kill it (pretty much outright) with mortal wounds (as I have several spells that can snipe with those, and I am a lowly gaurd army, not a particularly good psyker group.) Backing that up, about 2 plasma shots and 3 2 wound s4 sniper shots per turn.

Marines would do significantly better, grey knights even more so, space wolves will drop jaws of the wolf on that one character. Thunderhammerjerkoffs will leap in from nowehere and beat her to death in a heartbeat, and your army, while shooty, isn't particularly melee-ee. Suddenly, your major advantage of ignoring all the battle cannon and ignoring all the other ap-2 stuff on the field is in jeopardy.

Perhaps a squad of celestians would work better than a squad of retributors with 4 heavy bolter?

or, if oyu are likely to give up that, consider dropping 4 heavy bolter and picking up lady celeste instead of one cannoness -- thus potentially converting your 6++ to 4++ and making the heavy enemy weapons suddenly less useful.

I dunno. I ain't primarily a sisters player -- but it seems like a weak spot in your army when 5 wounds damage can negate your whole schtick, carefully placed, and suddenly your troops are sucking up ap-2 fire left and right. Lots of armies can do that over a round or two, and even if they can't, your one imagifier can only be in one place at one time, having two owuld let you anchor your army in two spots at once. Also, a 20 point preacher, if I recollect SOB prices, can add one melee to every model in that infantry corps you have.

Thanks for the feedback! I debated tweaking the list a bit more, but I think I’m just gonna wait until we get the point changes as that’s going to completely change everything anyway.
