Been tweeking this list for some time looking for final thoughts and critiques

Battalion - Bloody Rose

Canoness- Relic – Benefience 50
Celestine- Warlord- Beacon of Faith 170

Troops
BSS 55

Preacher 35
8 repentia 120

Fast Attack
5 Dominions - 4 Storm Bolters 72
5 Seraphim - 2 double inferno pistol, plasma pistol 100

Heavy
Exorcist 195
Exorcist 195
5 Retibutors 2 Heavy bolters, 2 Multi Melta, 2 cherub 130

No Slots
Inquisitor Greyfax - Terrify 90

Repentia share rhinos with Greyfax, Imagifier, canoness and priest. Dominions push forward and blessed bolt. Celestians, tanks, BSS, Celestian, and the triumph push forward to objectives. Seraphim do what they do and deadly decent and likely outflank the retributors or leave them on the board to move up if they can hide during deployment.

I'm just getting into sisters so grain of salt on all this.

Going heavy on the special characters makes the list feel a bit small. Is triumph that essential or is this more for cool factor?

Might be worth considering stormbolters on the BSS.
Alternately- it would cost some cp but this list would translate well into patrol + vanguard. This would allow you to separate the assault units from the armoured ranged units and making them valorous heart while cutting back the BSS a bit.. just a thought.

The mixed weaponry on the retributors is likely due to the kit but these would be much better off with all MM's now. I just snatched up a couple myself on fleabay for around 10 bucks.

Also I feel like the list really wants a third rhino. Or possibly put one unit of repentia into strategic reserve so the celestines can ride. This would be less needed if they were VH. On that note I feel like the MM is now better than a third MG here due to full rerolls.

Greyfax over a cheap nilla inquisitor- is this for the extra anti psych without spending cp?

Thats all I got.

Multi melta's can quite easily be converted from heavy flamers. Take a couple of melta gun barrels from a BSS box and replace the flamer barrels.

Thanks for tips, much appreciated. I've played with the idea of two detachments over and over and looked at VH BR combo but sisters need CP, they are staved for it so I have a lot of trouble justifying the two detachments.
The triumph is very fun and handy but also, like you say, a more cool factor to have in this list.
I find sinking too many points into retributors takes away from other units so I split the squad. They usually get targeted next turn and die anyways so at least the cherubs still allow 8 MM shots.
Greyfax is also a cool addition to the list providing overwatch protection to the repentia and a little anti psych.
Special Characters and at this point in 9th you just have to cut your losses whether its give up vehicle secondaries or character secondaries I figure they add punch and life to the overall list. Ideally a second canoness would be nice to baby sit the exorcists but not sure where I can cut. Bloody Rose is good for Celestians and repentia. I don't know how my Imagifier will play but he could double up on stoic and warrior and walk up the board if I really wanted.
On paper it seems good but I have yet to run it. I could drop down to one exorcist but 2 seems necessary to have at least 4 vehicles on the table.
