It doesn't look bad, but the first thing that comes to mind is that with only 20 core troops your opponent is going to target the Arcos right away once he learns how good they can be in CC. I would also put them in groups of 6, for a couple reasons. One, if you get a horrible roll for their number of attacks then it will still be a decent charge, whereas with 4 it could end up being a waste. Second, with their stim-injector things you could very well end up arriving at the enemy with only 2 Arcos left if you start with a group of 4... and that wouldn't be good either. I feel like putting them in larger groups just makes them more reliable, which is important since they're uncontrollable after you turn on the stim-injectors.
So, in addition to reworking the flagellant groups, I'd take some more troops. Stormtroopers? Allied IG troops platoon maybe?
Penitent Engines are awesome, mostly because they look cool. Like Exorcists I find them to be completely hit or miss -- they either get shot at and blow up right away because they moved up too fast, or they're wildly successful. What I'd recommend doing is placing them in Reserves, so at the earliest they come in on the second turn. This allows them to (maybe) surprise your opponent, and more importantly keep pace with the rest of the army.
To improve this list, I'd consolidate the flagellants into one group of 6, drop one of the Exorcists, and use the extra points to buy some more troops.

i was originaly going to have 2 units of 5 flagelnets, but then i couldn't fit in the fluffy stuff for the ad mech, also, the celesitians mostly exist to carry the priest :3,
I don't have my book with me atm, but would dropping the clelestians & doing 1 unit of 6 archos to get another troop work out do you recon?
