I reckon, unless you are looking for the uber-cheese power list, just play the units you like the look of. I personally have a mix of Paladins, GKT, SS & IS. Occasionally using a small Purifier or Purgation squad for the fun of it. I try to play from a fun perspective, although my 2000 point foot slogging list ate daemons 2 games on the trot last night, so you should always have an advantage against them.

i don't know by now ... i think i'll use different lists depending of my mood ... a standard one, a full termies, a full DS (i'd like to try), a full purifiers...

All of the above and more. Now we have choices, which is great!

I'd tend to say that purifiers are a good replacement for purgation squads in most lists due to their ability to take much cheaper PsyC and still pack a good CC punch, but thats just me.

As everyone said however, there are plenty of choices now!

I'm planning on a unit of Purifiers, two Strike and an Interceptor squad as my core. Breaks my heart not to have Termies but sadly for me, they just don't cut it anymore.

Interceptors are a nice idea, paired with a GM the can be made scoring, making them the ideal last minute objective grabbers.

You'd keep a minimum of 260 points of your force just as an objective grabbing gimmick? Up to you but seems like a waste to me....

Very true 260 is a waste, but 130 is not.

so you'd only go for one objective at the end of the game with a 5 man squad having to survive the entire game....

if they do it they're definately Grey Knights

Maybe take the interceptor squad 10 strong and combat squad it. Give a demi-squad two incinerators and keep the other half back for objective grabbing if you think that will work out for you.

They're expensive, but everything is. I warp shunted and killed an entire squad of looters with a single incinerator in the squad today, with two you'll kill most anything without a 3+ armour save. It's expensive, but the high chance of assassinating T3 HQ choices and heavy support may be worth it.

Teleporting up to the rear armour of a tank/ artillery piece makes gives you a good chance of taking them out (with either incinerators or psycannons) and they're too close to the enemy vehicles for effective return fire unless your opponent really starts moving things to react.

The shunt move gives us so many otions it's insane. I may do as you suggest Brother Sai, 10 man and then combat squad them. They'll mean at least a heavy headache for my opponent.
