To start with I've been getting advice from peep's at my local club but it varies so much. No-one else plays WH so not sure if it is good advice. They play mostly 500pt combat patrol so that is where i would start, play quite a few games (lose most of them)while getting used to playing the game. One school of thought was
5 IST's (2 special weapons)
5 dominions (3 flamers) mounted in a immolator
5 retributors (3 special weapons)
and inquisitor (2 warriors, 2 acolyte, 1 chirugeon)(done as CC squad)
And the other school of thought was
2 squads of Sisters (14) in each and 1 Palatine (to get extra faith point bu killing her off)
Which idea works best (will then work out an army list and then ask for more help
Do not have an Inquisitor CC squad, a shooty Inquisitor would be much better, but seeing as you already have Retributors it is not necessary. So use a Cannoness instead, you will get more faith points and a BS 5 model with 3+ armor. The heavy weapons for your retributor squad should be all heavy bolters. I would say something like 5 Retributors 1 squad of sisters with flamers and the Dominion Immolator combo if you can, or just take a rhino. I have never found a time when I need more than 2 flame templates in one squad. The way I calculate it you can kind of combine the two schools of thinking, and it should work pretty well, though you might want some meltas for anti-tank.
Can't use a Cannoness in Combat Patrol as she has 3 wounds and only allowed 2 wounds so have to go for the palatine instead.
I've played a lot of CP, and my suggestion is going for amount rather than FP, 6 retributors with 4 HB as FS, 10 SoBs with Superior for Faith, no Spec-Weps Rapid-Firing bolters are great and a Rhino with 10 more SoBs for Agile fire power, give 'em a flamer and a h-flamer for additional fun
