Did you guys notice that on the Warhammer Community Page the post from today: "Get Ready for Chapter Approved: Matched Play Updates" states that there is a points cost increase for Celestine?   I wonder how much....

I don't like that. She's a huge boon to imperium armies, as two units with 2 AoF is awesome, but 2 AoF and 2000pts of units isn't as awesome. And they bumped the malefic lord up to 80pts, which seems like it made them worthless. I don't trust GW to keep my favorite model usable. I've used her since she was terrible, and I'll keep using her, but at least for a little bit she was good.

With any luck a few of our melee weapons will get a points reduction in the same way certain ranged weapons are cheaper on models with vs 4+ than on models with vs 3+

We pay the same as guard for everything but eviscerators, which while I would hope go down a few points, are well worth he 22 on a Cannoness.
Power Fists were 22, they got cut to what, 12?

If they don't cut its cost, I will just use the Relic Blade instead.

G-Man got a 25 point increase.

Yeah, I mean, Powerfist are *technically* worse, since they have a -3 instead of a -4, but they aren't ten points less. And yeah, the relic blade will save you 18 pts. So if your only running one cannoness it's prolly worth it. That said, pre codex, a pair of Cannoni with eviscerators demolished a Swarm Lord for me, so I'm partial to them.

Still starting S3 vs S4, anything close to ten point reduction would be nice.  I don't charge things with my Canoness, my Dominions kill all the things Celestine doesn't.

I'm falling out of love with Dominions. Don't get me wrong, they're good, but 3 units of them in repressors is fine for me. More than that and it becomes to spammy to be fun more than a few times.

Likely up to 50 points unless they go all malefic lord on her. Repressor is also likely in line for a hit, going to be rough if all the sisters get in return is a canoness with a strength 5 power sword and a 6" aura of moral re-rolls.

Is she good enough at 300 points (with both Geminae)?  Is she balanced at 300?  I would still most certainly take her at that cost, in most games that have any kind of competitive context at all.  So I would be fine with a 50 point jump. 

 

I have always loved Dominions, and while I went far beyond what SB Dom model count I need, I got enough to use them as a sizeable force even in Apoc.  I will still probably run six squads at least, mixed SB and MG, in a competitive scene until (if....) our Codex comes out.

I hope it's not a 50 point jump but i'd still find the points to run her. there's just no point in us not running her and its a crying shame if we're getting penalized for soup players when she's our only named character (discounting the hobo with a shotgun)

I avoid named characters in most lists, and in general prefer specaial characters to be costed to be more situational than auto includes so I’m fine with this

I’ll continue to take blob BSSs no matter how bad they get! :P (seems that they get a Minor buff in the form of obsec in Chaoter Approved thought)

The issue is, for me, that Primarch Girlybro is rumored to only be going up 25pts.

Which would be make Celestine going up 50 military grade bullgak.

She's probably gone up by 10. Let's relax and see.
Also, if other units get a price drop it probably won't matter.
