HoP Idol Quickfire Challenge: Boys and their Toys

Ready to see somebody finally take a crack at the new Sisters of Battle “Codex” for 40k?  Well Inquisitor_Dunn has the ….erm…. balls to do just that in his entry for the quickfire challenge. 

2000pt WD Sisters of Battle: “Boys and Toys” List
 
It has been finally completed. The master piece work of art that my fellow Sisters of Battle get stuck with for the foreseeable future. That’s right, the White Dwarf codex is complete. After reading it, I can see it was not the fully operational death star we all hoped for. Heck it wasn’t even better than the old codex in my opinion.
 
 
 
Ok, the crying is over and I have thrown a list together using my army collection. I do not want to invest in alot of new models, but still want it to be some what competative. Here goes nothing……..
 
HQ
Uriah Jacobus (He will be in every sisters army.). 90pt
Battle Conclave- 6 death cult assasins, 3 crusaders, rhino (UJ rides here). 170pt
 
Arch-Confessor Kyrinov (Personally I think he is a better buy than a canoness, plus more DCA!).  90pt
Battle Conclave- 6 death cult assasins, 4 crusaders, rhino.  185pt
 
Elite
(9) Celestians- heavy flamer, flamer, power sword on the superior, rhino (Kyrinov will probably ride here). 210pt
 
Troops
(10) Battle Sisters- multimelta, flamer, combi-melta, rhino.  150pt

(5) Retributors- 4x heavy bolters, immolator with twin heavy bolters and inferno bolts.  150pt
 
I only have to add the 2 battle conclaves and 2 rhinos as I have the rest already. I’m staying away from adding “real” sisters units for now. Yes, I’m hoping for plastics in the next year or two.
 
I think it is better than some old lists I ran. The addition of scout units will realy help the army. I also get the bonus of 2 mini hammer units. I just don’t know if they will have the staying power.
 
So what do you think? Can Sisters compete? Go ahead and add your 2 cents!
