OK so here is my list in progress. The force is going to represent a sort of planetary defense force made up of whatever troops are available.
The First section of my force is drawn from a local Battle Sister Temple. It is small in comparison to others, but the sisters are more than willing to defend the locals.
80 - (HQ) Palatine - Blessed weapon, Praesidium Protectiva, Book of Saint Lucius
144 - (Troops) Battle Sisters Squad - 10x Sisters, 2x Storm Bolter, Veteran Sister Superior w/ Storm Bolter.
288 - (Troops) Battle Sister Squad - 9x Sisters, Heavy Flamer, Flamer, Veteran Sister Superior w/ Power Weapon, Brazer of Holy Fire & Frag grenades
Rhino - Extra armor + Pintle Storm Bolter
145 - (Heavy) Exorcist - Extra Armor, Pintle Storm Bolter
The Second part of my force is the locals. Each squad is armed distinctly to give the force a rag tag feel, but overall I think the weapon layouts work out.
235 - (Troops) Infantry Platoon
Command Sq - Auto Cannon, Flamer, Jr.Officer
Infantry SQ - Lascannon , Flamer
Infantry SQ - Missile launcher, Grenade Launcher
166 - (Troops) Armored Fist SQ - Heavy Bolter, Melta Gun
Chimera, Improved Comms, Searchlight
55 - (Fast attack) Sentinel - Lascannon
55 - (Fast attack) Sentinel - Lascannon
160 - (Heavy) Leman Russ - Hull H.Bolter + Sponsen H.Bolters, Rough Terrain Modification.
The last section of the force is the the local law. The Inquisitor and his body guard will be modeled from the enforcer models, and the death cults will probably be represented by a pack of Malcadon Spyer hunters, with the assassin being the "gang" leader.
296 - (elite) Ordo Hereticus Inquisitor - Bolt pistol, Eviscerator, Master crafted weapon, Rosarius
3x Acolytes - Carapace armor, Combi Flamer
1x Cmbat servitor
Chimera - searchlight
120 - (elite) Death cult Assassins x 3
95 - (elite) Eversor Assassin
70 - (Heavy) Lance Strike - (need a good explanation for this to be in the army, any ideas?))
Overall it looks like a fairly competitive force. I was thinking I could drop the lance and the sentinels for a second exorcist, I need some game time with the list to work out the bugs. Let me know what you guys think, and what you might want to change.
Doesnt look too bad actually.
I think the Palantine should really be a Canoness, the little amount of points spent to upgrade her stats and faith are really worth it, and I cant see any reason I would ever use a Palantine instead (unless you're doing it for fluff reasons). Also, you realise the Book of St Lucius wont affect the Sisters right? Palantines are only Ld 9, as are Sisters (with their VSS) and so the book will only help the Guardsmen, but really I think the Canoness should be hanging out with her Sisters.
The rest of the list looks alright, I probably would drop the Lance Strike though and get a second Exorcist, only I dont know if you can justify that in your fluff though. But its not like you can justify the Lance Strike either so who cares..
Good work otherwise.
Book of St. Lucius is still viable. Unmodified leadership is nothing to scoff at.
The Praesidium Protectiva cannot be used at the same time as the Blessed Weapon though. Since the former is one handed and the latter 2-handed. So I would drop the Protectiva.

The LD was more for the guardsmen, and Thanks for pointing out the Praesidium Protectiva thing. For some reason I was thinking it was like a marine combat shield.
I'll have to give her a Rosarius if I can find the points.
I was thinking today I might convert the exorcist using a guard Chimera mixed with a marine whirl wind.
So I'm dropping the lance, and maybe one of the sentinels, or maybe the assassins all together for another tank. hmm.... :yes:
I would never convert an Exorcist using a Chimera... yuk.
Using the Whirlwind turret is of course a good idea, but please stick it on an Immolater! The added bonus there is that you can also replace it with the Immolater turret for smaller games and have a tank that can be an Immolater or Exorcist.
