    1500 First List, Just picked up Codex

    So I just picked up the codex and have been poring over it and these forums, deciding how to construct a solid list. My main army is eldar and I have a lot of experience with space marines. This list came out pretty mechy because thats how I usually run my armies, sorry if I made any nub moves, just inform me of my errors please.


    NOTE: This list comes out to only 1460, I didnt know what to add, maybe more books of St.Lucius and Imagifiers? Seeing how I have never played witch hunters, I have no idea what realistically works or not, all insight is appreciated.

    Make the Celestians into a retinue for your Canoness, rather than taking them as a seperate Elites unit, and dump the Priest.

    Don't mix the heavy weapons between squads; either take 2 meltaguns or a flamer & heavy flamer. I can see how this makes sense since you've got anti-tank in every Rhino, but I find it a lot easier to just dedicate squads to different roles.

    FAST ATTACK
    10 Dominions
    4 Flamers
    Sister Superior = Bolter-Flamer

    Rhino
    Smoke Launchers
    Extra Armor

    I'd either make this into a unit of Seraphim or possibly even into another Sisters squad. It's not that the Dominions are bad, it's just that the Seraphim are better. They also give you an extra Faith Point, which will come in handy.

    HEAVY SUPPORT

    Oh yes Extra armour for these things is worth 5 points.

    EDIT: Put a Book of St Lucius on every squad leader, and if you end up swapping your special weapons around put an Imagifer in the squads with the flame templates.

    I'd drop a rhino or two(make it a single rhino and a exorcist and you'll have loads of points spare), for an assassin and maybe some retributors. More long-range support is needed in the infantry department in my opinion. It's just that a single krak missile can wreck your exorcists while for a squad of retributors less is going to be done. Just for versatility and omnipotence you know?

    yeah

    Besides what was said i have found that a jump pack cannones is more effective than one with a retinue for severeal reasons. Also with the current rules you may want to add repetia as your list lacks counter punch. Also including one or 2 evicerator in your BSS prevents you from being swamped by dreads and such. TYou also need seraphim. Are you looking to pure sisters only because if you are open the sisters seem to be their best when paired with allies. In particular deamonhunters and guard.
