1,000 Point Starter Force

Post by Valten on Thu Apr 21, 2011 12:57 am

So my local GW generally plays 1,500 points, but encourages smaller 1,000 point friendlies. Gaming boards for these games aren't very wide, so I decided to come up with a footslogging force. Let me know what you think

Ordo Xenos Inquisitor - Power Sword, Rad Grenades, Psychotroke Grenades - 65

10 Purifiers - 1 Daemon Hammer, 7 Halberds, 2 Psycannons - 279

5 Terminators - 4 Halberds, 1 Daemon Hammer, 1 Psycannon - 225

10 Strike Squad - 2 Psycannons, 1 Daemon Hammer, Psybolt Ammo - 250

5 Purgation - 4 Psycannons - 180

Comes to a total of 999 points. I came up with another similar list that replaces 5 Purifiers with a Dreadnought with 2 Autocannons and Psybolt Ammo, but I really like the idea of a large Purifier squad and the flexibility to combat squad them to hit two lots of Cleansing Flame in combat.

What do you all think?

OX inquisitor is a little 'light" imho for 1000 points, i prefer the quiet strength of a GM ... but with the GM you'll have a point problem ! Twisted Evil
so if i had to sacrifice someone to enter a GM ... i'll sacrifice the purgator squad and with what's left i'll put some GK or 1 GKT more.

As I mentioned in your 1500 point list: try a Brotherhood Champ over the =I=. Swapping out the Purg squad as Aubec suggested will give you the points for him and enough to plug in a Dread instead.

saying that 31 models for a 1000 points is good

would you put the INQ with the purgation squad for extra wounds

Personally, I think the =I= would work best with the Purifiers to make full use of his funky 'nades.

That CAN happen Razz I did use them already and it worked awesome for me Very Happy

My GM and a weakened paladin unit (only 3 left out of 5) were assaulted by a WL on thunderwolf backed up by 5 TWC. I rolled a 2 for the PS grenade and they were all reduced to 1 attack each while all my attacks automatically hit. I wipe out the TWC by sheer number of wounds + force kill. TWL had EW so he survived but fell back and was in the process of being escorted off the board when the game ended Very Happy

i've used them in a tournament, every time i got into combat they did something awesome. the results are great, they're worth the points, especially when they charge you.
