Might be a pipe dream of mine, but I'd love to see the Sister's gain Sentinels (at a higher price than IG of course).
Ulitmately I'd like to see Sentinels and Heavy Sentinels.
Sister Sentinels would have normal IG armor and be open topped with weapon options of Storm-Bolters, Meltaguns and Flamers as another FA unit.
Sister Heavy Sentinels would have IG armor +1 on the front and sides and have an armored crew compartment with weapon options of Heavy Bolters, Multi-Melta and Heavy Flamers as another Heavy Support unit.
We keep the aspects of the holy trinity (bolter, flamer and melta), but provide them some mobility, and these units could not use acts of faith.
I doubt such a dream would ever come true, but an Sister's player can dream and have faith right?
Well... for one they would NEVER count as open-topped if crewed by Sisters since power armour makes a vehicle still count as armoured if open-topped with regards to such a thing. Like transports with marines in them for example or if a sentinel was crewed by a space marine. Power armour IS as good as tank armour.
Other than that it's a cool idea, but unlikely given the fact it isn't FANATIC enough, like repentia, celestials, dominions, retributors, immolators and the like. All sisters stuff is fanatical but the sentinel doesn't sound it... I don't really understand posts like this, why wouldn't you want them to have their own cool and unique walker... It would probably make more fluff sense. But keep it up, at least you do have ideas.

Combine a Sentinel with a Pent-engine and go with that. You would have CC and ranged capabilities.
I get your point on the 'fanaticism' look and feel, and we can induct 1 squadron of IG Sentinels already anyway. I'm just not so patiently waiting for something new to add to my army, and some mobile special weapons in small walker packages would certainly fit the bill.
I know this could make sisters a bit to space mariny but a dreadnought would be nice
i would prefer a penitent looking sentinel style walker, so close range, like the rest of the army, but with little h2h, just a couple of giant flamers for arms that could possibly hurt vehicles as well.
perhaps give it a self defence mechinism that does damage to it while doing a large template of fire damage to everything around it.
that would be a bit different, and still stay in the arc of the SoB arsenal
