Sisters are cheap, so fielding a lot of them is generally a good idea. Saying 'if you force enough armor saves they'll fail some of them' doesn't work on the Sisters, their saves are too good and they're too numerous.
Against any MEq army you should aim to match or exceed their numbers. 40K strongly rewards having a lot of good infantry. I've experienced battles where loads of characters and vehicles have miserably failed to make up for lack of footsloggers. This is especially the case with Sisters where good BS, faith abilities, excellent armor and low cost combines to produce the best basic trooper in the game. Notice how most of the figure counts posted so far are on the high side for power-armoured. Many Marine armies have only 20-30 infantry models at 1500 pts.
my last sisters army was comfortable up to 1250 points (I had about 1500 but you need to have spares) and had over 50 painted sisters.
My current mechanised army has as above, although not all are yet painted
Wawelski, figure out a list, put it up and aim to that.
I started colelcting with a plan to have nicely painted 750 army and stop. And then I liked one model, and another, and another... Now I am up to 1700 pts maybe, but a big part of that I admit is burried in Celestine, Karamazov, Exorcist and Immolators which are still in boxes...
veterans all need a combi-flamer and a brazier of holy flame then give squad a heavy flamer and a normal flamer and that is a standard sister squad a dommy squad for me is same as above but the heavy is on tank and 3 more flamers.
