Buying a list friday, which should I get?

Post by Justyn20003 on Wed Jun 01, 2011 8:33 am

So Friday I get paid and I plan onjust going out and buying EVERYTHING i need to run one of these lists, but I'm rather new and not sure exactly what list to buy. So opinions are more then welcome.


HQ:
Lord Kaldor Draigo = 275
Librarian (+3 powers, 2x Skulls) = 175

TROOP:
7x Paladins (Apoth, MC DH, 2x MC Psycannons, BBanner, Psybolts) = 560
5x Paladins (MC DH, 2x MC Psycannon) = 330
5x Paladins (MC DH, 2x MC Psycannon) = 330
5x Paladins (MC DH, 2x MC Psycannon) = 330




OR
HQ:
Librarian (MC NFS, +4 Powers, +3x Skull) = 185
Castellan Crowe = 150

TROOP:
10x Purifiers (Rhino, MC DH, Halberds, 4x Psycannons) = 340
10x Purifiers (Rhino, MC DH, Halberds, 4x Psycannons) = 340
10x Purifiers (Rhino, MC DH, Halberds, 4x Psycannons) = 340
10x GKT (MCDH, DH, 2x Psycannons, BBanner, Psybolts) = 500

HEAVY:
5x Purgation (Razorback, 4x Incinerators) = 145

do you have the codex ?
if not ...buy it first ! Wink
if yes ... the first list is easier to build and to paint (at least faster to paint), but hard to play, the second list is more expensive and i believe more efficient
for the fluff and the beauty of the minis i'd say buy the termies
for the tourney efficiency, and the body count i'd say buy the purifiers (GK in PA)

so my only advice : buy what you like to play

Do you think against Necrons and Tau (armys my friends play) and maybe orks, what list do you think would work better? Like on average. Becasue I like the Paladin list better honestly, not a big fan of tanks and they look cooler I think but I atleast want a fighting chance.

against hordes (orks, nids...) purifiers are better i think.
against Tau your small body count (in the termie list) will be a real weakness,cause they have plenty of S10 AP1 weapons.
against Necrons, the libbie and his power that wound the vehicle automatically will save your day, and the termie list will work just fine i think.
so i can't help here ! Razz
try the termies : if you prefer them, play them !! after if you will want to increase your army you'll have plenty of time to buy the PAGK... Wink

I definitely agree that purifiers would work better against horde armies but paldins are really tough to.

I wouldn't recommend buying lots of terminators. You'll eventually will want to change your strategy. I'd say, buy 5 boxes of GKSS, and 4 Boxes of GKTs (or 4x4). That'll give you some felxibility for army building.

Since you'll probably be asked to give your kidney and your left eye for what you're going to buy (a.k.a. expensive), I'd say buy 5 GKSS and 5 GKTs, using one box of termies to convert your own Librarian, GM Mordak, and eventually Kaldor Draigo. Conversions are really fun and add a personal and unique touch to your army.

If you're willing to spend a little more, get a couple of NDKs or a Stormraven. Trhe former are pretty nasty and their models are great, the later is really a good vehicle to have at hand.

All in all, you'll be looking at a very balanced force and in the future, you won't need to buy much to complete your GK army.
Hope this helps!

PS. Oh and welcome to the ranks brother!
