    Eviscerator + book and a bolt pistol.
    So your unit will have some CC power and alway`s have LD 9.

    Agreed with as posted above, however I would advocate that you should specialise the squad, wither going with 2 flamers for anti-infantry or 2 meltas for anti-tank or heavy infantry. I find this works far better than having a squad that is mediocre at both...

    Depends on the point size however, in smaller points it's not always possible to specialise to a large extent.

    Hope this helps.

    Depends what unit they're with for me:

    Battle Sisters:
    Superior w/ Bolt Pistol, Brazier of Holy Fire, Book of St. Lucius
    Superior w/ Bolt Pistol, Evicerator, Book of St. Lucuis

    Seraphim:
    Superior w/ Power weapon, Bolt Pistol
    Suprior w/ Evicerator, Bolt Pistol

    Retributors:
    Superior w/ Storm Bolter

    I havn't included just plain basic superiors up there and sometime I don't even use the books since there may be a cannoness nearby with one.

    I used to follow this philosopy as I moved from Eldar to Witch Hunters but I have found that a single meltagun here and there will prove invaluable, even as a threat or just as a final precaution should all else fail. A set-up as follows keeps the squad quite effective at killing infantry as well as have anti-tank protection:

    10 Sisters of Battle: Heavy Flamer, Meltagun
    Superior: Brazier of Holy Fire, Bolt Pistol
    Rhino Transport

    You'll find the Exorcists will handle a good deal of your anti-tank needs in a typical game against a balanced list. But against something with more vehicles or tougher gribblies you'll find an light spread of high strength low ap weapons across the army will be invaluable. Me a few years ago would have recommended you:

    Cannoness - Blessed Weapon, Jump Pack
    Cannoness - Eviscerator, Jump Pack
    4x 10 sisters w/ flamer, heavy flamer, rhino, and Superior w/ book of st lucius
    2x 8 Seraphim w/ 2 Flamer pistols and Superior w/ Evicerator
    3 x Exorcists

    However now I would consider the set-up I mentioned above as well as mixing some other units into this, some would argue that this would make the list less competetive and it is true to a degree but I find it more enjoyable with more different things to play with (strictly my opinion).

    I like my Vet Superiors providing a third flamer template.
    Usually a Book of St Lucius + Combi-Flamer or Book + Brazier of Fire.
    And over there we have the labyrinth guards.

    Book and Bolter. Anything else is a complete and utter waste since all she does is sit in a Rhino, and every point you fritter away on wargear is a point you can't put towards MOAR IMMOLATORS!!!

    Book.

    The number of times I have said "Man I wish I had two swings with a WS3 weapon that goes at I1, that would really turn this game around" is far, far outweighed by the number of times I have said "Man I wish I had another 100 pts to play with in this army list."

    I also don't want to be second guessing myself when it comes to that point in the game where I need a few "volunteers" for martyrdom from squads away from the hottest action It's always nice to shake your opponent's headspace by making them regret a decision. Seeing your faith pool go up because they decided to take a couple pot shots at some squad who's irrelevant to the battle is a good way to get there.

    The same for me. Anything else is too pricey IMO.

    Whenever I take battle sister squads with 2 melta guns I like to throw on a braizer of holy fire on the superior just to make the squad a bit more flexible, but ALWAYS take a book of st, lucius, its good good and cheap to give up.

    99% of the time I just take a Book and bolter, and I throw in an eviscerator with the seraphim superior.
