A couple of Questions about the loadout of the Canoness. I tried for something cheap and effective, but i am wondering about running a jump pack canoness instead...

What is a good loadout for a canoness to run with Seraphim w hand flamers?

Should I bring a second Canoness at 1850?

Here's what I'm thinking so far:

HQ:

Canoness, Litanies, Book, Combi-Melta, Brazier, Bolt Pistol - 101

Fast Attack:

5x Dominions w 4x Flamer, Veteran Superior, Brazier, Combi-Melta, Immolator w Twin Hv. Flamer - 195

10x Seraphim w 2x Hand Flamer, Veteran Superior, Eviscerator, Book - 274

Troops:

10x Battle Sisters w 2x Meltagun, Simulacrium Imperialis, Veteran Superior w Book, Repressor - 219
10x Battle Sisters w Hv. Flamer & Meltagun, Simulacrium Imperialis, Veteran Superior w Book, Repressor - 221
10x Battle Sisters w Hv. Flamer & Meltagun, Simulacrium Imperialis, Veteran Superior w Book, Repressor - 221

Totals 1501 - comments on effectivness, debating dominions or ceslestian retinue. I like dominions cause she can leave the squad after they have their 1 shot FREE 6-flamer-template-rending-act-of-faith. A canoness with a combi-melta and a deathwish (Yay Martyrdom!) can't be ignored...

What about the seraphim squad? too big? Taking 2 units of 7 and dropping the dominions, and giving the canoness a jump pack and different loadout is possible - but is it better?

What would you add to bring it to 1850?

Most people that use a variant of the Flying Nun of Doom go with the following:

Either Eviscerator OR Blessed Weapon, Inferno Pistol, book of st lucius, cloak of st aspira, mantle of ophelia, rosarius. Sometimes meltabombs.

I think a combi-melta and bolt pistol aren't really your best choice in terms of utilizing her stats and staying power, especially when you consider the Acts of Faith she can perform. :D

My Seraphim squad sits between 6 and 8 (models and points being the limitation) with a VSS w/ plasma pistol and power weapon and book, then two sisters with TL inferno pistols. I don't use the hand flamers as much so I can't really comment on their effectiveness, but your unit matches most I typically see listed :) If anything possibly it seems the average is 7 or 8 sisters, and sometimes with meltabombs as well.

Yes, I'd even bring a second canny in 1500, but thats me.

I'd add a flying nun for your phims and a fourth squad of battle sisters. Cant go wrong with more troops in a sororitas list.

keep in mind that running a Canoness with Seraphims negates their Hit and Run rule.

True, but nevertheless it can have its uses. I generally run my flying nun with an eviscerator. She will stick with the phims to hide and then peal of to hunt vehicles, tarpit a monstrous creature (2++) or oneshot a t3 or 4 independant character. After this the phims are free to do their nasty hit and run thing.

As panbient's post two spots above your own states, Seraphim with an attached Canoness cannot use their Hit and Run rule to leave combat.
