Yea your right!! With only 24 models on the table I have to use everything to its full potential!

The Idea of my tactics is to use Draigo's grand strategy to make my units scouting/scoring (im a big fan of outflanking)in objective based games or boost their combat ability in annihilation. His ability to help bring in reserves is a great help as well!

I can put any of the squads in either the landraider or the stormraven, its all dependent on the deployment/mission and whether or not I go first or second. I tried to build a list that could be played 50 times and still be fun and different every game, yet still work effectively.

Looking good!
Can't wait to hear how it holds up on the table top.
I am also looking forward to seeing them all painted, and with only 24 models, that shouldn't be too long Wink

Not bad; I like the look of the army on the table...avoid psilencers though. They....SUCK.

Get a Psycannon on that termie. Or an incinerator. OR ANYTHING but the psilencer.

Bad experiences with them myself.

Nice list. A couple of things I would like to adress

Try either 2 LRCs or 2 SRs. One of each will complicate your strategy since both vehicles play differently on the battlefield. Both support your Termies/Palies, so it's up to you which one you take (both are great btw).

Drop the Apothecary, he seems great but it's a huge point sink for an already expensive unit. one Death Star unit will be shot to oblivion the moment it hits the table, and you preferably want it to kill stuff instead of drawing fire away from the rest of your army. Use those points for Psycannons and Psybolt ammo everywhere (specially on your vehicles).

As for the Psylencer, I have not tried it yet. But unless you pack a bunch of them (to kill anything by saturation) I'd recommend replacing them with Psycannons.

Also one question: Why take Draigo when a Grand Master will do the job a lot cheaper?

Draigo makes Paladins troops, but TBH you could have a Grand Master and Justicar Thawn with 2 normal terminator squads for around the same points.
Apothecary is a huge points sink (no matter how many times people say "but what if you're against a huge hoarde of tyranids or orks!" it just isn't funny how expensive it is) and doesn't add anything IMO.

I'd almost suggest going with twin Storm Ravens. Redundancy and also more firepower than the land raiders. plus as you have small numbers mobility will be key.

Post by Corennus on Wed Apr 06, 2011 9:51 am

this is an idea for your list. just changed a bit:

HQ

Grand Master
Mastery Level 2
2 Servo Skulls
Meltabombs
Psyammo
Digital Weapons
Psychotroke Grenades
Master Crafted Nemesis Halberd
260

Elite
- Ten Purifiers
x 4 Psilencers
Halberds x 10
Psybolt amo
280

Troops
- Six Grey knights Terminators
Psycannon
Brotherhood Banner
Falchions x 3
Nemesis Warding Stave
Hammer
Justicar Thawn
380

Five Grey Knights Terminators
Nemesis Warding Stave
Brotherhood Banner
Hammer
Psycannon
Falchions x 3
265


Fast Attack
- Storm Raven
T-L Multi-Melta
T-L Plasma Cannon
Psybolt Ammunition
Hurricane bolters
255


Stormraven
T-L Multi-Melta
T-L Plasma Cannon
Hurricane Bolters
Psybolt Ammunition
255

HEAVY SUPPORT

DreadKnight
Heavy Incinerator
Heavy Psycannon
Personal Teleporter
Nemesis Greatsword
300
TOTAL : 2000points


Purifiers go in one Storm Raven, Grand Master w/ Thawn goes in the other. The last squad of terminators deep strikes in to provide close fire support, and the Dreadknight lopes across the battlefield until he can teleport close enough to bring his incinerator to bear. And then the Greatsword goes and has fun

Thanks for the pictures! I agree that seeing and army in all its might is always a nice conformation of its power and sheer terror factor for your opponent. Its always nice seeing how other people are posing their armies. Also nice addition of the terrain on your Dreadknight, it really helps break up the super large base that he is on.

I look forward to seeing some Batreps with your army!

I would personally like to see the addition of a Vindicare Assassin to help with Vehicle penetration in your list. 4D6 on average will penetrate a LR.

one note though
you GKT (or pal) with the banner can't have a sword cause the banner replace it but you can give it the the psycannonbearer (or psylancer i don't really remember ! Razz )

A note about the Heavy support.

Drop the Psybolt ammo form the SR, it's not worth it if you are not packing TL AssCan.

I'd also drop the Nemesis Great Sword on the NDK. You're aiming at a shooty DK and with the doomfists you'll have enough power in CC.

Lol AssCan...

Anyways, yeah I agree with DonFer, drop the great sword, despite looking awesome, for its points it's not really worth it. Twin doomfists are off the chain, remember that you'll get a bonus attack and S10, which I think will make up for the not able to reroll everything.

(Did you know that a Dreadknight in CC with doomfists has an 83% to score a penetrating hit on a LR?)

Nice looking army. Should look great painted up!

Your list. At 2000 pts, I think your going to have alot of trouble against very competitive lists. IG right now are crazy good. In tournaments they are constantly in the top three and more often then not placing number one. All it takes is your expensive paladins to get nuked by a plasma spamming Russ. As much AT most "competitive" lists are taking, you'll get rocked.

I noticed you are not taking halberds. At all. Bad idea. They make GKSS' actually close combat viable without paying tons of points for them and will give your squads protection where striking first against carnefex and majority of other units in 40k is key, otherwise your squad will get rocked. In a army where your models need to stay alive, you need to at least take half of each squad with halberds.

Thanks for all the feed back.

To answer some of the questions, this is my more fun and fluffy list so I realize some things are not practical Very Happy

I agree that a GM is a cheaper way to go than draigo but I just love how he looks (stats and fluff)

Also I know the banner bearer swaps his sword for the banner but I just thought he looked cooler with one!

@Corennus I like your list and I think it would play well I'll try it out (I cheeked if I have the models to field it and I do yay)
