    Not legal i'm afraid - minimum squad size 10 for sisters.

    I might also ask why the static heavy weapon squad are the only ones with a transport?

    Power weapon at our strength wont do much against an average player (read: smurf). While blessed weapon gives you strength boost and a re-roll, makes it a great buy. Jump pack would be a good investment but she may as well slog with her buddies across the feld.

    I myself use an eviscerator canoness for small games, with str 8 she is some angry girl busting any tanks in that bracket.. even if your opponent would bring a land raider for some extra cheese with his fries.

    Sorry i don't have my codex handy to check for point costs but 9 sister squads are illegal. Also why take only 1 special weapon, why not take full advantage of our arsenal.
    Since you are foot slogging anyways you may want to merge or somehow buff your sister squads (i am not sure of your format's restrictions on force organization chart).


    Retributor Squad - 184
    4 Retributors w/heavy bolters
    1 Veteran Superior w/book of st. lucius
    1 Rhino

    Three problems with this unit that I would consider: no free bodies to lose from shooting; book wont be needed that much since they would die to any melee unit anyways and there are no modifiers for shooting now; that lonely rhino would blow up very fast even in a 500 point game, so to make use of it you have to have at least two; while a point investment on your part they would provide several targets to your enemy and would give greater chance to get at least one of them to the destination.

    Also all your squads have books, they are not needed everywhere. Your canoness should not be wondering on her own, most likely you would join her with another squad, no use of having 2 books in the same squads, while it is a good book and girls are avid readers it would be a waste.

    So general advices:
    Reconsider book usage.
    Make squads legal.
    Think of rhino problem.

    First off, your math is wrong on the Ret squads. Looking at my codex, I'm counting 70 points not 86. Second, you need 9 Battle Sister and 1 Superior for a troop choice. Third, why aren't you upgrading to VSS for faith points?

    I suggest dropping a squad of rets, add a heavy bolter to your other ret squad, upgrading all your Superiors to VSS, add another sister into each of your troops, and give your cannoness a cloak, a jump pack, and an inferno pistol. That should put you at 497 assuming I did my math right.

    At 500 point games, not much is going to stop that cannoness from wreaking havoc and tieing up your opponents big 'uns, which are probably a big point sink for him. That'll give your meltas some breathing room so they can do some damage, and your heavy bolters should provide some decent cover fire. On top of that you have 5 faith points which is a HUGE amount for a game this size.

    Thanks again for all the feedback.

    The sister squads are squads of 9+1. The way I make lists just isn't all that clear on that I suppose

    The way its meant to be portrayed is 8 sisters + 1 sister with meltagun + 1 superior.

    Second of all, I actually did mean to have VSS but didn't mark it

    Canoness - 115
    w/inferno pistol, cloak of st. aspira, jump pack, mantle of ophelia

    Sisters of Battle - 128
    8 Sisters of Battle
    1 Sister of Battle w/meltagun
    1 Veteran Superior

    Sisters of Battle - 128
    8 Sisters of Battle
    1 Sister of Battle w/meltagun
    1 Veteran Superior

    Retributor Squad - 129
    4 Retributors w/heavy bolter
    1 Veteran Superior

    Total - 500

    How bout now?

    Your math is off on the troops, 134 not 128 and keep the evicerator on the cannoness

    Canoness - 125
    w/inferno pistol, evicerator, cloak of st. aspira, jump pack

    Sisters of Battle - 134
    8 Sisters of Battle
    1 Sister of Battle w/meltagun
    1 Veteran Superior

    Sisters of Battle - 134
    8 Sisters of Battle
    1 Sister of Battle w/meltagun
    1 Veteran Superior

    Retributor Squad - 99
    2 Retributors
    2 heavy bolters
    1 Veteran Superior

    That puts you at 492. Maybe give something a book or something =P

    Eh...you're missing out on the sister's best weapon...the Heavy Flamer. And Blessed Weapon is much better than Eviscerator (which by the ways, only gives you S6, not S, which you don't need for anti-tank because you already have Inferno Pistols. If you add the extras I mentioned, you may have to drop the jump pack and maybe 1 Heavy Bolter. But I think it's worth it.

    Actually, heavy flamers cost 2 more then the meltas and a BW costs 5 more then an evicerator, so that would put him at 501 if he upgraded the metlas to HF and the Evi to a BW. =D

    You were right about the calculations. I'm not really sure about the heavy flamer though, as I like insta kills. Please persuade me the HF is a good choice.

    Changes made.
