That's a good question, you should post it in the question thread.
Bolter marines never go out of fashion. They are the little black dress of troops choices.

If you stay in a basement for a year or so, you could claim to never have heard of the new codex, and all would be fair. Seriously, I don't think the transition is so hurtful for your army, since you have no inquisition models.

If I were you I would write a new list with all of your current models in it, then just add one - Jacobus, the new star of SoB.

I think this comes out to 1838 points, but you will definitely want to verify that for yourself. There aren't really all that many changes, the main ones are the Canoness' retinue getting replaced with the Command Squad, the Canoness losing some wargear, and the Dominions losing two storm bolters.

OK so according to the answer to my rules questions i need to come up with a legal list for my new codex to work from, so here is my list i will be using. As a side not it actually has 2 less troop models in it that i will most likely be adding to the side bar and a ton less points in the HQ section, so anyone who tells you sisters point costs when down is full of it. Also all my models will remain the same, my Canoness however will have to be slightly remodeled with a new backpack and repainted. This months commitment will remain unchanged however.

So here is my list
HQ
Saint Celestine (NEW) 115 Points

Canonness 95 Points
Inferno Pistol, Power Weapon

Elites
Celestian Squad 180 Points
Celestians X 10
Heavy Flamer
Flamer

Celestian Squad 180 Points
Celestians X 10
Heavy Flamer
Flamer

Celestian Squad 150 Points
Celestians X 8
Heavy Flamer
Flamer

Troops
Battle Sister Squad 125 Points
Battle Sisters X 10

Battle Sister Squad 125 Points
Battle Sisters X 10

Battle Sister Squad 150 Points
Battle Sisters X 10
Melta Gun
Heavy Bolter
Veteran Sister
Power Weapon

Battle Sister Squad 148 Points
Battle Sisters X 10
Heavy Flamer
Storm Bolter

Fast Attack
Seraphim Squad 135 Points
Seraphim X 5
Veteran Superior w Plasma Pistol
Flamer X 2

Ok, despite sick children, mid-month tournaments and Halloween prep I was able to complete my goal.

Here is a picture of the models before painting.

Sorry for the short post, very busy lately. But, I’m very thankful for the hobby challenge, it’s keeping me working on my army. Thank you very much for running it.

Exorcists in the sideboard?! It seems crazy to me. I'd change them in for the celestians any time for some long range vehicle murder.

There on the sideboard because there painted already. I'm basically finishing out my non-painted models, not making a viable list.

On that note November is full of FAIL for me with hobby challenge. Between my 6 month old starting sleep training and Skyrim being released i haven't done a thing. I went from finishing October early to nothing in November. So on that note, December Commitment is a repeat of November and hopefully i will put Skyrim down and my Daughter will sleep threw the night.

Thank you and burn the heretic.

Ok so December Failed. Like super failed like didn’t pick up a brush failed.

On a plus note, I beat – finished playing Skyrim. Also I got the paint station+, new brushes, a pin vise, and some new washes for Christmas so I should be back on track for the challenge again with no distractions and new supplies.

So for January I’m going with my same commitment again because it’s all still on my desk. I’m going to push for more but that’s my commitment.

On a side note, potty training a 2 year old sucks if you ever wanted to know.
