    While there have been times I'd wished my regular squads had eviscerators, I think more seraphim would go further in the long run. You could also use some of those points to buy very important books of st lucius for all your squads.

    Not sure what all those points for pintle storm bolters on the exos are getting you either?

    I think the only vehicle I'd buy a storm bolter for, is an LRC, 6" forward, the number of shots it can fire... anywho thats Grey Knights, Exo's should be at most 140pts with extra armour, beyond that and you just wasting points.

    Wow, quick replies. First off thanks for the comments and advice.

    I went with the evicerators in each squad because I figured firing at close range that they will get charged eventually and when they do I would like to have a powerfist (or their equivalant) in the squad to add a few high strength attacks into the mix. Also in the case I ever need to take out a vehicle due to the exorcists being down Im hoping the melta and evicerator will be enough.

    The pintle bolters.. well honestly it was because I had extra points and wasnt sure what to use them on. I can remove them and get books for the celestians, three sister squads and the saraphims.

    Any other comments or advice?

    When I first started sisters a long time ago, I was told on a different and respected board to give all my VSS's eviserators by many people. After playing a few months I found that those expensive upgrades weren't as good as I hoped. WS 3 means you are more often than not hitting on 4's against about everyone. I have since adopted using evis's on canonesses, Celestians and seraphim which all have at least ws4 or better yet hit on 3's with celestians.

    I think Path and Affe have good advice. Personally, I would drop the pintle sb's and dozers, drop the evis off the sisters and maybe upgrade one of the sob squads to a second Cel squad. I have also never been a fan of dozer blades. Extra armor will allow you to move if you get stunned/shaken. I find being able to bolt 12" behind cover works just fine. Better than the 6" rerollable dozer movement. But thats just a personal oppinion.

    I'd also give all your squads a book. Dropping the SB's will pay for that as well as maybe squeezing another seraphim into the mix.

    OK heres the updated list using everyones advice. Upgraded a SOB squad to celestians, added 2 seraphim to the unit, books for each squad, got rid of the evicerators from the SOB squads and all the extras from the exorcists. Also put the meltas with the celestians because they have the evicerators. I have 14pts left over if anyone has any advice on what to do with it.

    Just as a technicality, you should probably make the 9 girl squad officially the second canoness's retinue. You don't want to leave her standing around all by her lonesome in Escalation. On the downside it does mean you can't leave the squad to attempt acts of faith.

    Don't forget frags on the jump canoness!

    Good call on the retinue. After adding frag grenades to the jump canoness I still have 13 pts left. Anything worth buying or would you leave the list as is?

    I have to disagree with the others regarding dozer blades. I have been using them on my exorcists for some time and find them to be invaluable. I always deploy my exorcist near terrain so that I can maneuver to cut off fire lines at them. I often find myself moving through area terrain to get the shot I need, to prevent return fire, or to benefit from concealment. I frequently make 3 or more terrain rolls per exorcist and those dozer blades have kept them mobile many times when they would otherwise have given up points and lost their scoring status. Basically, 5 points is very very cheap for the value I get out of them and I recommend them to anyone who uses thier exorcists with care.

    I don't have rough terrain mods on my exorcists more because I don't want to glue dozer blades to my three beautiful babies than because I don't think they'd be worth the points =).

    If you do make that squad a retinue, you could consider dropping the book off the vet, that would bump your spare points up to where they could be used to buy back those dozer blades or master craft someone's eviscerator.
