Celestine + 2 gemini

Troops
-------
Battle Sister Squad - Heavy Bolter + 2 Storm bolters

Elites

Repressor with 2 storm bolters

Spearhead Detachment
---------------------------
Cannoness - with chainsword and stormbolter

Elites
------
Imagifier
Imagifier

Heavy Support
-----------------
Exorcist with storm bolter
Exorcist with storm bolter
Exorcist with storm bolter
Retributer - Storm Bolter + 4 heavy bolters
Retributer - Storm Bolter + 4 heavy bolters
Retributer - Storm Bolter + 4 heavy bolters


Notes:
I agonised over this list swapping in everything from grey knights, assassins and even inquisition... but in the end settled on this. Its my usual...

Back field
-------------
4 x Retributer squads with heavy bolters with 3 imagifers and 3 exorcists are the long range fire support. With each retributer squad able to pump out upto 24 shots with reroll 1's on a good turn (im actually happy to sacrifice my army AOF, if the situation calls for it (e.g. fighting an ork horde). If I roll well, its actually possible to get 96 Str 5, 1-, Dmg 1 Heavy bolter shots all rerolling 1's - YES PLEASE!

This is in addition to the 3 sister squads with another heavy bolter in each.

The 3 Exorcists are another link, all rerolling 1's due to the second cannoness targetting the obvious threats. You get luck with them. Should on average get 9 - 12 shots a turn with them.

Front field
------------
This in the 2 repressors with dominion squads with the Seraphim squad and Celestine all attacking the same part of the line, depending on needs. If im the one being assaulted, they will be a fast reactionary force to deal with the incomming.

thoughts?

I'll let you know how I go.

Ive decided to drop one retributer squad and imagifier and add a forth exorsist. I feel i need more to deal with vehicles in my meta.

Seems like a pretty solid all around list, I am a little personally unsure about the effectiveness of exorcists on the table  but I haven't used them myself.

At worse you maybe have to few Imagifiers and could possibly get one back into the list by dropping the Blade of Admonition and the inferno pistols.

Dominions scouting up with meltas might not be super effective if they have masses of infantry without wounds spilling over from their D6 Damage. But you can just not scout them into danger close horde lines and just try and trade across the table with heavy bolter and storm bolter combined fire to soften them up.

Something kind of goes for the Seraphim almost, mostly because of the short range of their bolt pistols leaving them in counter charge/charge range of most things to be effective. This can be mitigated by deepstriking them in the right spot or just moving them the right way to get a good first shooting in before your heavy bolters light up the rest of the horde.

Besides that I don't see to many major changes that need to be made to your list.

Hey sorry, it took so long to get back. We didn't get an even roll out at the club that weekend, and 5 of us decided to have a 2 on 3 game and reduced our lists to 1250 points. So I loaded up on Celestine and 2 dominion squads.

As a brief summary, WOW dominions rock,

We went first and I was able to power forward with Celestine and the dominion squads in repressors and while had -1 to hit, they did very well, almost taking out a flier and causing their whole army to freak out because I was able to put pressure on their line. Saying that, Celestine was bouncing everywhere taking out or putting pressure on all sorts of stuff.

I certainly did my job in the game.

Makes me wish I had repressors to play around with. Just rhinos and immolators doesn't cut it a all.

I am pretty good with 3d modelling. So I've actually 3d printed  mine.

I just about have 4 repressors now. Ill try to organise a pic of them.

But yes... dominions in repressors charging 12 plus d6 free move then 12 d6 move again is brutal when you can shoot out of them hitting on 4s.

Put 2 cannonesses in them to and you hit on 3s.

They will certainly be a fire magnet.

They do get pretty scary turn 1 movement this edition, and slightly a littler more effective with the vehicle changes.

For 3d printers can you use any program to make the model or does it have to be done with one specifically for 3d pritners?

If you were able to sell them I wouldn't mind buying a pair of repressor recasts off of you.

I use a program called blender.  It is free.

Unfortunatly i can't sell the models or plans because it would breach gw... but also put me in jeopardy at work where in print them. I'm allowed to print my own for my own purpose but i can't sell etc.

If you go to a website called thingyverse and type 40k in the search bar you can find all sorts of models. 

I used one that was a rhino and all i did was build a top for it to resemble a repressor... and it's petty close.

Rhino model i use

I made my own but here is a dozer blade some one has made for the repressor.
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2541799

If you got those printed... i bet all you would have to do is make a top for it out of what ever you like and there you go... a repressor.

I dont know if this world work because it's for 6mm 40l. But here is a repressor that someone had made.  I'm not sure if can be scaled up to 28mm.

I'll see if I can get something worked out, thankfully already have blender downloaded.

I wonder if they will ever be able to fix the mold or it is just lost to the warp forever.

Hopefully they do bring it back.

But I thought they had an email/message floating around saying that so far they have been unsuccessful in recreation the mold?

Maybe that was just my imagination and everything will be just dandy later dine the line.
