Not a bad start man. Unless I'm missing some special rule here, you can't have 3 HQ's. I'd recommend using those extra points you get back from dropping one of those HQ's for transports to your purifiers. This will protect them a bit and make them more mobile. You mignt also consider dropping extra armour since fortitude pretty much covers that.

Where do you plan on putting your GM and/or Librarian? How do you plan on playing your paladin squad?

Well those 3 HQ's are my base HQs I won't be using them all in a battle, just thought I'd list them...XD
I plan on using my libby for buffs, and GM for CC and Grand Strategy

My Paladins are just there to soak up dmg and hopefully get into CC, but i'm relying on my purifiers to get the job done, and I never really liked transports so i would go for a SR if im going down that road
And as the Venerable rule states you CAN re-roll but you must except the the second roll's outcome, and that is a little too risky for me because i'm relying on my Dread to provide support fire

I was refering to the Psychic power of fortitude which ignores crew stunned/crew shaken if passed on a Ld of 10, not the venerable rule.

I would suggest removing one palladin so that you can attach your GM or Libby to the squad and still fit them in the SR.

Good Luck man. Let us know how you do against the Nids. I don't see them often, but do get a game in against them occasionally when I'm home.

Should I drop the falchions for Halberds to give the 2I+ bonus instead of a 1+A? cuz then I can MC the Halberds and that way i can re-roll hits and usually strike first,if not, at the same time and Halberds are freeeeeeeeee!!!! (music to my ears)Very Happy

I deffinitly prefer the heavy incinerator to heavy psycannon. Had an incident where I made the teleport shut to within 12in of his troops, fired the psycannon and it scattered back to my dreadknight. It didn't wound him, but it left a bad taste in my mouth for that weapon.
