I'd like to finish off my Witch Hunters with my Xmas money. So far I have just over 1000pts which includes:
Cannoness w blessed wep + bp + trinkets
2x 10 Sisters w. hvy flamer + flamer + vet w. book + Rhino
Inquisitor w. nothing
9 Seraphim w 2 Flamers + Vet w. Evisc
So, I was thinking maybe another Exorcist, a retinue and transport for the Inquisitor, and then I'm not sure. I'd like to take it up to around 1500pts, maybe some Penitent Engines? Or more Sisters? (Although I'm not sure I want to paint more of the same stuff), Some ISTs?

I strongly recommend some more anti-tank as your army really lacks that department, even for a 1000pts list so another exorcist is good. However, if you're looking for a more inquisital method, small squads of Inquisital Storm troopers with 2 Meltaguns and a combi-meltagun in a Rhino isn't a bad option either.
For your extention to 1500pts I recommend the following points of consideration:
- Anti-tank, in 1500pts you can expect more tougher units and vehicles and one source won't be enough to counter them all.
- Mobility, you army lacks this in that you only have a single squad that can move 12". Considering you're using flamers you should consider some faster units to protect these girls from being out monouvered. Another Seraphim squad or Rhinos for your Battle Sisters fit the bill.
-Number of squads, with the remaining points after considering these points I recommend you get a few more numbers in your army for more table coverage. Sisters are unbearably slow when on foot so the best way to counter this is through mobility or table coverage. Some Storm Troopers can help in this respect and add that anti-meq power which if different from divine guidance.
i agree with Heiromyo, rhinos for your sister squads are a must. If you want to, go ahead and get another exorcist- they are very good.
For your inquisitor, i would get a cheapish fire support retinue, maybe with just 2 heavy bolter servitors and some healers and acolytes. From your current list, i can see, that like me, you are going for a mixed list. If so, a chimera with some plasmagun wileding stormtroopers is good, as bith add lots of firepower and are comparitivley cheap for what they do.
Hope that helps a bit.
Oops. Sorry, the sisters squads both have rhinos. Have edited thread.
since both units already have rhinos, i would go for a unit of stormtroopers in a chimera wioth plasmaguns and a smallish retinue for the inq. with your last 500 points, i would get-
173- 6 stormtroopers w/ 2 plasmaguns in a chimera (multilaser, heavy bolter, EA and smoke)
114- Inq retinue:3 heavy bolter servitors, 2 healers and an acolyte w/ carapace and a bolter
I dont have my book with me at the mo, but i think its correct, then you have 78 points left over. You could spend 8 points on your inq and then get a immolatyor or an orbatal bombardment.
Hope that helps a bit.
I don't know its a great idea, but I would get a few more seraphim that way you could field two units of them working in tandem on the battle field, plus they would be harder to target as a whole.
