Big Canoness retinue - 1. A good idea? and 2. Cheesy?
The idea is for me to have a canoness (Blessed Weapon and brazier of holy fire) in a unit of 8 celestians (flamer, heavy flamer, imagifer and superior. Superior has brazier of holy fire and something else. not sure yet.) In addition, they are joined by a priest (eviscerator and brazier). They are all mounted in a rhino.
Now, this totals well over 300 points and contains 5 template weapons (three of which are one shot only). On the turn that I use these, I would be using divine guidance (for those who do not know, makes my shooting rending). This is where my question about cheesiness comes in, you see.
They are of course also beasts in close combat. 3+ to hit rerolling on the charge. More faith powers would make them unstoppable.
Is putting so many of my points in one basket a good idea? I'm almost certain it is, especially when faith powers come into it. But also, is such a tooled up HQ kind of ruining the spirit of the game? Is it the sort of thing that would be frowned upon at tournaments?
Thankyou and my apologies for what has turned out to be a damn long post.
EDIT: Yes I realise now that this was a really stupid idea. Thanks for your help in making me see this.
