Two lists i'm considering 1750

Post by Corennus on Tue Apr 19, 2011 3:26 am

Got another game on Wednesday and i'm playing around with ideas for my first proper GK list.
The first list is centred around the idea of overwhelming firepower and precision deep striking, the second relies on Fortitude and good dice rolls....

First list: The Hammer of Daemons

HQ

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor
Power Armour
Conversion Beamer
Servo Skull x 2
84

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor

Conversion Beamer
Servo Skull

ELITES
Inquisitorial Henchmen Warband (8 man)
X 8 Psykers
DT: Rhino w
120

TROOPS

Terminator Squad (5 man)
Incinerator
Nemesis Force Halberds x 3
Nemesis Daemon Hammer
Brotherhood Banner
230

Terminator Squad (5 man)
Incinerator
Nemesis Force Halberds x 3

Strike Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
Nemesis Force Swords x 7
Psyammo
240

Strike Squad (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
Nemesis Force Swords x 7
Psyammo
240

HEAVY SUPPORT

Dreadnoughts x 3
T-L Autocannons x 2
Psybolt Ammo
405

1750


The Second list:

HQ

Castellan Crowe
150

Grand Master
Nemesis Force Sword
Orbital Strike Relay
Servo Skulls x 3
Blind Grenades
245

TROOPS

Purifier Squad (10 man)
X 2 Psycannons
X2 Incinerators
X 1 Daemon Hammer
X 5 Halberds
275
DT: Rhino w/ HK & Psybolt Ammo
55

Purifier Squad (10 man)
X 2 Psycannons
X 2 Incinerators
X 1 Daemon Hammer
X 5 Halberds
275
DT: Rhino w/ HK & Psybolt Ammo
55

Purifier Squad (10 man)
X 2 Psycannons
X 2 Incinerators
X 1 Daemon Hammer
X 5 Halberds
275
DT: Rhino w/ HK & Psybolt Ammo
55

Purifier Squad (10 man)
X 2 Psycannons
X 2 Incinerators
X 1 Daemon Hammer
X 5 Halberds
275
DT: Rhino w/ HK & Psybolt Ammo
55
1749

With the second list Crowe is attached to the Grand Master and they stay at the back of the field. The grand master can call down orbital bombardments each turn, (aiming at the servo skulls for only D6 Scatter!) while the rhinos (with fortitude) keep rolling forward. The psycannons on the purifiers firing 2 shots per psycannon every turn until they have to get out. The Incinerators are there for extra effect before cleansing flame is cast in assault phase..
Oh and the Grand Master can give Purifiers counter-attack or rerolling failed wounds of 1....

The first list is pretty self explanatory. 2 conversion beamer inquisitors with the psykers in the rhinos, providing a LOT of firepower, 3 psynaughts providing even more, and 4 troops deep striking in to claim objectives...

Hard to choose which list as both are so radically different. Remember, Crowe is not an IC so can't be attached. Also, unless it's a killpoint mission I scratch my head why players want to hide or keep Crowe back the whole game. This pretty much makes him a dead model anyways so you might as well try to get him into the thick of things. Even if he footslogs he might draw a turn or two of fire that might have been directed elsewhere. Even with hunter-killers, your second list concerns me due to lack of long-range a/t. I might consider dropping a Purifier squad for a couple of Dreads.

I would say in my limited experience with the new dex so far 2 HQs are an incredible points sink for us and will most likely not be as good as a return as adding another unit or makeing existing ones better.

Crowe isn't attaching. The grand master is attaching himself to Crowe as an IC himself lol.

Thank you for the comments. will find out tonight. I'm taking both lists, hopefully get to do both!

As for long range firepower in second list....4 HK Missiles? I know in my experience they're either BRILLIANT or miss.

One problem im foreseeing is if Enemy has psychic hoods my BIG BLAST squads could be rendered ineffective...

Can you attach an IC to a single model unit? I thought the rules prohibitted you from doing that.


EDIT: Just checked. Pg48 on IC's states that an IC may never join with a unit that is always composed of a single model. The only exception being that an IC may join another IC and form a unit. Therefore the GM can't join Crowe, as he is a single model unit and not an IC.

How about changing the type of Inquisitor so you can give them both a Psyculum and so make the Psykers BS 10 for those pesky Space Wolf Librarians hiding in rhinos

Well I played the first list and I have to say the psykers outdid themselves in how crap their ld rolls were. Ld 8 is just too low to have to rely on!
