4 Choir boys
10 TFG + UA
A classic set-everything-ablaze list. Vanquisher, what can harm heretics from up close and personal and from afar, is bonded to Feora. Cleansers run amock and incinerate everything, including themselves and Feora to get concealment while advancing. Rhupert aids the inf. Kell picks his targets and kills them.
You can swap Kell and the Wracks to Eiryss, or the Sunburst to Eiryss if needed. Vanquiser can be replaced by a bonded Redeemer to make the fun last longer.
Do not rush anywhere, advance in a slow and steady pace, let the enemy come in Feora's control area.
When enough units are flaming, Feora pops her feat to place the continous effects to the right enemy models.
Immune to Fire and / or continous effects models / units in the enemy's ranks may ruin the fun.

Hm, I am not sure what to think hof that list. It should have a lot of problems with high arm targets like Jacks. I see nothing that can kill 2-3 jacks.
What do you think about taking EE with the Covenant ? They can set everything in flames with their crossbows (thanks to the Covenant) or hit with pow 11 weaponmasterattacks (thanks to Ignite). You won't need Kell (Eyriss would be more useful most of the times), the sunburst (even if it is ok now) or the cleansers.
And you will meet a certain problem: If you hit something it often doesn't burn, it just dies. So Cleansers are not the best choice for fire, something with less power would be much better. The bonded Redeemer is great for this job.
Oh and with vassal your Vanquisher could shoot 2 times per turn, so I would take at least one.

I think you've got a little too much fire going on and not enough hitting power. Against armor you'll have a hell of a time.
What I've been playing with lately has been...
Anti troops you have the Vanquishers and feat doing the heavy work while eEiryss and the Reckoner can snipe things early. Against armor all the jacks can do well either shooting or melee and Rhoven can throw a beat down as well. Utility in the form of Rhoven(anti stealth and clouds), eEiryss(upkeeps and focus allocation denial). As far as setting fires, the Vanquishers under escort and with the help of the Vassals are more than enough to set things ablaze(16" threat range plus a 4" aoe and deviation) so you don't have to worry too much about setting multiple fires.

Killed eButcher twice with this army, left not a single chance to the big guy, not even when he bought Commandos. Also killed several Horgenforge armies with quite high ARM. CMA Incinerate, Vanq with choir, TFG with Ignite and Sunburst direct hits can render anything to useless scrap. Just a few buffs and I have several different ways to damage 18+.
True, just a few lucky enemy survive the onslaught to continue butning, but let it be the problem of the enemy. :)
I am using Eiryss only when I suspect incorporeal or sneaky nasties with stealth. Otherwise I stick to Kell. Just love the scarred guy with the one shot one kill ability. Soemtimes he alone can fend off a whole squad of terrified Widowmakers or Stormsmiths.
I have a Vassal, but never ever field tested him. I found Covenant a waste in this army, because everyone can set everything ablaze already.
Ah, and the main reason behind the In Flames list is to build a working themed army around Feora. TFG and cleansers are clearly hers, Repenter too. Put a Vanq and a Sunburst to the Flameguards, add some dudes on the cross for inspiration, several young acolytes with angelic voice, grab some merc and fan the flames.
I am quite curious what kind of themed army Feora will get in the Protectorate book. Any suspects?
