Hello everyone! It's my first post here but I lurked for a little while before joining, so I have a little bit of a sense of what I'm doing but at the same time I've never played a game of Epic. I put together a quick and dirty 3000pt Sisters of Battle list for friendly play and I'd like to get it critiqued:

Mission
8 x Battle Sisters
Canoness
Priest
4 x Rhino
425 points

Mission
8 x Battle Sisters
Palatine
Priest
4 x Rhino
375 points

Mission
8 x Battle Sisters
Palatine
Priest
4 x Rhino
375 points

Exorcism
5 x Exorcist
Hunter
300 points

Exorcism
5 x Exorcist
Hunter
300 points

Choir
6 x Seraphim Sisters
Palatine
275 points

Coven
4 x Dominion Sisters
200 points

Coven
4 x Dominion Sisters
200 points

Repentance
6 x Repentia Sisters
Mistress
225 points

Penitence
4 x Penitence Engines
175 points

Lightning Squadron
2 x Lightning Strike Fighters
150 points

Total: 3000 points

I'm not really sure how viable this is. Is the best tactic just to spam vanilla sisters, rather than mixing and matching each Mission with Retributors, Dominions, etc.? Also, is it a good idea to have so many Priests and Palatines, or are those points better put toward fielding another unit or swapping the Rhinos for Repressors?

Not many places to put it, honestly. The only 2 formations you can attach Hunter AA tanks to in the SoB list are Exorcist tank formations and Repressor/Immolator tank formations. The Lightnings fighters also have AA 5+, though. I could possibly drop some of the characters from the Missions and nix the Penitent Engines to free up points for another formation of tanks with a Hunter.

At 3,000 points how many air assets do folks tend to field in friendly play? I've got no practical hands-on experience playing the game yet.

i usually take at least 2 formations of flyers with most armies.
dual tbrick never ending air assault is pretty much par-course for the codex marines at this point

Hi,

I am the army champion for the SOBs. Some comments on your list.
1. I would remove characters from mission sisters and just take a Supreme commander
2. exorcist in units of 6 is perfect. Two units is fine as you have no other long range shooting.
3. Take two lightning strike formations.

I have been playing them for the last three years. My favorite style is two/three units of mission 2 units of retributors because they are great in firefights and they ride the chapels. I dont bother with the dominion sisters or choir. i have tried repentia sister but they are strictly HTH with no firefight so they need to pick their fights and only 6 attacks from the unit does not cut it. I usally play 4-6 formations of penitent engines unit size of 5-6. Go to the Inquisition site and look at the comments and battle reports for sisters of battle. My blog is below and you can go back to some of the games I wrote up. Welcom to the Inquisition where heretics live but we burn them.

Thanks for your feedback! I took a look at your blog but I can't find the Inquisition site you mentioned, could you drop a link? Also, what's the miniature you're using for your Emperor's Chapels? I'm curious, they look pretty neat. I was planning on getting this as a stand-in: https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/shop/novan-mobile-command-centre/

your list is much better, its more focused and basically everything has a 4+ save. Their is no inquisition site their is the
section in this forum
https://www.tacticalwargames.net/taccmd ... .php?f=130

that has the army lists, comments. Their should be battle reports under the battle reports section.

Blitz is one objective that is hard to get and I dont try for it. I use my SC mission sisters to occupy my blitz then advance with sisters and retributors as support as theri FF is nasty. the Penitents have walker ability and can infiltrate great for moving close than charging from 30cm into HTH or double to burn a unit from cover. They have mulitple units but they also get picked on a lot since they are nasty heretics.
