    2K GT ConQuest NW.

    I am going to the upcoming Conquest NW GT in Seattle in January and either want to take my Guard or Sisters.

    Here is my 2K Sisters list. (I know it has a lot of Evicerators in it, but recommend what you would spend the points on instead..) I could take a Callidus?

    HQ (327pts): Cannoness; Blessed, Book, Brazier of Holy Fire, Litanies of Faith, Frags
    Retinue of 8 Celestines; Frags, Flamer, Heavy Flamer, VSS with Evicerator. (Go in LR with =][=).

    Elites (288pts): =][= + Power Sword.
    Landraider, EA, Smoke.

    Troops (702pts): 3 x Sisters Squads. Each with VSS, Bolter, Book, Evicerator. One Sister with Heavy Flamer, one with Melta Gun. Rhino, EA and Smoke.

    Fast Attack (290pts)
    : Seraphim x 10, one VSS with Book and Evicerator, two Sisters with Inferno Pistols.

    Heavy Support (429pts): 3 x Exorcists, EA, Smoke.

    7 Faith Points.

    I am finding a lot of Transport/Tank heavy list these days, hense the 3 Exorcist and Landraider. I am worried about a lack of troops in this list for a GT however........

    The big thing that I noticed is that you are taking an Inquisitor but you don't have any deep strike counters... with the prevalence of drop pods you could very well see them.

    Here is my interpretation of your list.

    I also don't think you are really running enough troops... I might suggest dropping one of the exorcists and grabbing a couple squads of stormtroopers, but that is more of a personal choice.

    With more and more objective missions, running only 3 troops is a gamble.

    Aggies for 40k - PM me for details.

    I think you said you are planning on putting the Cannoness & retinue inside the land raider with the lone inquisitor, first of all the inquisitor needs a retinue of atleast 1 person to take the land raider, second of all if you include the inquisitor in the squad they will not be able to use faith points since the inquisitor is unfaithful.

    Also I would take the elites inquisitor from the Daemon Hunters codex as you get the much better smoke launchers.

    I would make the list something like this:

    Hq

    Cannoness w/blessed weapon, litanies of faith, book - 266 points
    8 celestines w/ veteran, eviscerator, heavy flamer, melta gun

    Elites

    ordo mallues inquisitor - 409 points
    psycannon
    2 sages
    3 warriors w/3 heavy bolters
    1 mystic
    land raider w/extra armour and smoke launchers

    Troops

    10 sisters w/veteran, 2 melta guns, book - 207 points
    rhino w/ extra armour and smoke launchers

    10 sisters w/veteran, 2 melta guns, book - 207 points
    rhino w/ extra armour and smoke launchers

    10 sisters w/veteran, 1 heavy flamer, 1 melta gun, book - 209 points
    rhino w/ extra armour and smoke launchers

    Fast Attack

    10 Seraphim w/ veteran, eviscerator, book, 2 hand flamers - 272 points

    Heavy Support

    Exorcist - 135 points

    Exorcist - 135 points

    Exorcist - 135 points


    that comes to 1975 points

    I personally think that sister squads in rhinos or on foot are a better delivery for melta guns, plus it makes the squads effective range a bit bigger which helps not having to get so close to make your flamers usefull. plus it is pretty easy to over do flamers in a SoB army as chances are if your going to a GT theres going to be nothing but mechanized armies.
    I dont really like inferno pistols as much as hand flamers on serpahim because they dont have the ap 1 that melta guns have it sometimes really hurts they're ability to kill tanks.
    I think your running enough troops because you have alot of heavy armour backing up your rhinos.

    Just remember that Daemonhunters do NOT have the new dedicated transport rules so only the Inquisitor and his retinue may use it. That's the one benefit of a WH Inquisitor.

    Take a WH Inq with 2 churgeons and 3 heavy bolters and a squad of sisters with no transport. Actually, if you want some REAL fun, put seraphim in the LR, and when you need them to come out, drop them before you move and you've got tons of fun. It's unorthodox but hey, they'll never see it coming.

    Just checked, You're right. Oh well, it was a cool concept.

    Still, I've done Sisters in a Landraider, and it worked out well.

    Here is my 2K Sisters list. (I know it has a lot of Evicerators in it, but recommend what you would spend the points on instead..) I could take a Callidus?

    HQ (327pts): Cannoness; Blessed, Book, Brazier of Holy Fire, Litanies of Faith, Frags
    Retinue of 8 Celestines; Frags, Flamer, Heavy Flamer, VSS with Evicerator. (Go in LR with =][=).
    With this I would recommend dropping the celestines and using the points to add in another troop choice identical to your present troop choices, that should help you with your troop choice problem you mentioned. As for the canonness you could give her a jumpack and attach her to the seraphim. Yes it does prevent you from doing hit and run but not if you detach her from the sqd right before you charge.
    Elites (288pts): =][= + Power Sword.
    Landraider, EA, Smoke.
    First off this is illegal as I recall you need a retinue in order to take a land raider, second in a pure WH army land raiders aren't very good because of our lack of hard hitting sqds that can go in there, and I wouldn't consider a WH inquistor with a retinue a hard hitting unit. As I can see you already have 3 exorcists and that should be enough assuming your going to be rushing there lines in someway shape or form. If you are worried about drop pod armies or deep striking armies in general just put your army in reserves, it may be unpredictable when your troops start to come on but consider that you will have the first shot no matter and you will be able to deploy as far away or as close as possible to the deep strikers. As for psychic powers your army is mostly mech and real nasties like lash won't be able to work on you unless they get you out of your transports and then you have shield of faith to protect you too.
    Troops (702pts): 3 x Sisters Squads. Each with VSS, Bolter, Book, Evicerator. One Sister with Heavy Flamer, one with Melta Gun. Rhino, EA and Smoke.

    Fast Attack (290pts): Seraphim x 10, one VSS with Book and Evicerator, two Sisters with Inferno Pistols.
    With this I would exchange the inferno pistols for flamers and drop 2 of the seraphim and add meltabombs to the whole sqd. Now the sqd will be much more versitile and will be able to survive better in cc when you go to do your hit and run due to the flamer attacks prior to the assualt.
    Heavy Support (429pts): 3 x Exorcists, EA, Smoke.
    I would drop EA and smoke here, they are usually not needed.
    7 Faith Points.

    I am finding a lot of Transport/Tank heavy list these days, hense the 3 Exorcist and Landraider. I am worried about a lack of troops in this list for a GT however........

    If you are still worried about anti tank if you dropped that inquistor you could take a 10 strong sqd of dominions with 4 meltaguns, if not you can always add another battle sisters sqd. Hope my advice was helpful and good luck!

    sisters with flames and that AP shot thing is very very nasty.
    Superior stamina may win battles, but the ability to quickly recover wins wars.
