I don't think the braziers are required, you have enough flame templates. I would try and find points to get the VSS in the seraphim squad an eviserator and try and boost that squad to at least 6. Also you want all your units to have books of St Lucious.

I disagree, I love the Brazier. All my Canonnesses and VSS have that and a power weapon. I feel that, as an army that specializes at short range fire fights, you can't have too many templates. I personally prefer Dominions to Seraphim for Fast Attack slots, but then again Immolators get me excited. I like the list. My only concern is the 3 Penitent Engines, but again, that is personal choice. I would go for a Lance Strike as a magic "you shall not have this objective" button and beef up something else, maybe your Seraphim (or get a dominion squad : )but that's just me. If the Penitents are working out for you, why fix something that's not broken?

Indeed, dominions (with flamers in an immolator) will be included in the 2500 list along with another squad of sisters. It was either them or the arcos in the 2k and the arcos give the list some wicked CC power which the list was lacking. And yes the Penitent engines have made serve the list well by with slaughtering assault termies, or taking out an entire russ squadron in a single turn ^^. They are really there to be fire magnets though, so that the rest of the army can get in close, however its kind of a damned if you do, damned if you dont issue with them.

I just started sisters of battle as my third 40K army. I like that list to some extent, but I might change some things (already said earlier) against certain foes. That list must be murder vs orks and guard.

I'll have to look again but I think lit of faith is a limited item. I think you can have only one per army. I've thought about using the melta-heavy flamer in my squads. I currently use flamer- heavy flamer.

With the brassier of holy fire it's good against marine type armies so you can get more AP shots. Against humans and nids it'll be a waste.

I'm not a fan of the killer khans. I would rather run 2 exorcist and 1 heavy squad with heavy bolters maxed out.

My fault. You can take two although it just effects the user and the squad it attaches too. I personally think I would do some seripham with the living saint if I was doing a pure witch hunter list.

Thought about that, but its cheaper with the seraphim and cannoness, whilst not have Celestines nasty little draw back of zapping your faith points.

With the Saint the squad can withdraw using the old hit and run. If the cannoness is in the squad than you can't hit-and-run. But with the amount of faith points you using i don't think losing d6 would be to much of a problem.
