These girls are my bread and butter, I'll 9 times out of 10 run a battallion of them.
Dominions and seraphim i save as the seasoning to compliment my meat and 3 veg of bss. Only run 1 or 2 squads of either, though usually just one of each.
I like throwing them in immos, though i have experimented recently running 15 girl squad as well to surprising success. Never thought id see the day where i wasnt afraid of 30 charging choppy gaunts.

Now that the Chapter Approved gave us Stratagems I want to maximize their use. And I fill out the Elite requirement with 3 Imagifiers to capitalize on our Army's unique ability, the Acts of Faith.
Peace may cost less than war, or infinitely more, for war cannot cost more than one's own life.

I re-rolled a Deny first turn on Fateweaver's invuln buff, got it the second time. He nuked Celestine. Popped her up in his backfield so she could claim an objective and start hunting his Predator's. Ret's got the AoF to paint a bullseye on his chest. All my Dom's rolled up on him, stormbolter hell almost had him, then the Ret's finished him off. Game was basically over and I still had four CP's to cause trouble with. Ended the game with 2 left.

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

In an effort to pack as many special and heavy weapons in as I can (from the models I have), I usually end up loading out BSS. My staple was 4 squads with double storm/HB and 2 with double melta, leaving the multimeltas for a ret squad - to round out the pen engine and exorcist combo. The mm rets are a huge fire target, but they also wipe a 24” bubble around them clean of the enemy, and a hospitaller and dedicated act of faith keep them coming back in r shooting twice and wrecking face.
I’m going to switch it up today, though, and load up my BSS with melta/multimelta and stick the heavies in a reg squad. We’ll see if I like it more or worse.
I just can’t really justify -not- taking a brigade if I am going now to be fielding roughly the same models anyway, just swapping the position of the sisters in the squads. I don’t know, maybe I am caught in my own trap.
I am limited of course by what I have: 6 melta, 5 mm, 6 heavy bolters, 4 storms, 3 heavy flamers, and 9(?) flamers. Pity those are so bad this edition!

Start of 8th I ran mostly Outrider detachment and Spearheads with Seraphim, Doms and Exorcists, but the 3 bare BSS squads are a cheap 135pt investment that add a lot by taking up board space and screening out my deployment. Keeps my backfield exorcists and rets safe, leaving Celestine and the faster elements to go rampaging off.
The rest of the points are then eaten up by something fun (usually an Outrider detachment).

I love how demoralizing flamers are for the enemy and how I get to roll so many attacks for each tiny unit. I also love the damage output a Canoness can have against stuff without a good invuln.
