on chain complexes/model structure on cosimplicial abelian groups
related by the Dold-Kan correspondence
A cellular model category is a particularly convenient form of a model category.
It is similar to a combinatorial model category. (For the moment, see there for more details.)
A cellular model category is a cofibrantly generated model category such that there is a set of generating cofibrations $I$ and a set of generating acyclic cofibrations $J$, such that
all domain and codomain objects of elements of $I$ are compact objects relative to $I$ (in the sense of Hirschhorn);
the domain objects of the elements of $J$ are small objects relative to $I$;
the cofibrations are effective monomorphisms.

SSet with the standard Quillen model structure on simplicial sets (same for pointed simplicial sets).
For $C$ a cellular model category we have that
the functor category $[D,C]$ for any small category, $D$, with its projective global model structure on functors is again a cellular model category;
for $c \in C$ any object, the over category $C/c$ is again a cellular model category.
For cellular model categories $C$ that are left proper model categories all left Bousfield localizations $L_S C$ at any set $S$ of morphisms are guaranteed to exist.
