    1000pt Sisters, first-ever army...

    I am working out my first army to purchase, and figured 1000 points was a good starting point. This is what I have come up with:

    HQ:
    Canoness
    Blessed Weapon
    Cloak of St Aspira
    Inferno Pistol
    110pts
    Celestian retinue
    1 Veteran Superior
    4 Bolters
    1 Flamer
    1 Heavy Flamer
    1 Sacred Standard
    145pts

    Troops:
    1 Veteran Superior
    7 Bolters
    1 Flamer
    1 Heavy Flamer
    1 Frag Grenade
    1 Rhino /w smoke and extra armour
    200pts

    1 Veteran Superior
    7 Bolters
    1 Flamer
    1 Heavy Flamer
    1 Frag Grenade
    1 Rhino /w smoke and extra armour
    200pts

    Fast:
    1 Veteran Superior
    7 Bolt Pistols
    2 Inferno Pistols
    260pts

    Heavy:
    Immolator w/ smoke and extra armour
    73pts

    998pts
    6 Faith

    I am not interested in using an Inquisitor or Priest, so non-Sister units are out. This list is based on the army I am planning on buying as my starting-point, which is why the numbers may look a little odd. As I have not yet ordered anything, I can easily change the composition of the troops. I am not 100% certain on the gear either, but this is what I thought would be a good set-up.

    EDIT: all the new lines disappeared when I posted!

    I'd recommend putting the Celestians into an elite choice. And giving the canoness a jump pack, make her a character killer.

    Fast:
    1 Veteran Superior
    7 Bolt Pistols
    2 Inferno Pistols
    260pts
    Seraphim as your sole anti-tank is flimsy. In order for them to be useful they have to get far too close to the tank for your own good. I highly suggest getting/converting your own Exorcist. Exorcist can deal with high toughness troops and tanks. And with the added range will do far better then the seraphim.

    If you were able to pull the points for it, perhaps dropping the sacred standards, and adjusting elsewhere you might be able to get 2 Exorcists in while keeping your canoness flying.

    This is what I am currently thinking. It just cuts in at 1000 points, with 5 Faith Points.

    Alright that looks good. Don't forget that when you destroy all the tanks on the field you can use those exorcists to shoot high toughness troops.

    Thanks for the advice. I have just started painting Battle Sisters, so hopefully I will be able to try this list out soon.
