1500 GK tournament

Post by dreadknightl on Thu Aug 11, 2011 1:04 am

HQ
Draigo@275

Troops
10 Pallies@590 w/ 2 Psycannons, 2 hammers, 1 or 2 swords, and the rest halberds
10 GKSS@220 w/ 1 MC Psycannons

Fast Attack
10 Interceptors@280 w/ 1 Psycannon and 1 Hammer

Heavy Support
Dreadnought@150 w/ 1 TL Lascannons and Psybolt Ammo

I know this list is by BrentK, and I thought it was pretty good. I made some slight adjustments, and wanted to ask if it was worthy enough to win tournaments

PS: I am new

You need max PsyC to really consider this kind of list, since your anti tank is so low. (4 on Pallies, 2 on GKSS, Preferably 2 on IS)
The Dreadnought is also a total waste of points.

I don't think its a really balanced list so you'll probably struggle in a tournament environment, particularly against mech. Not to say it can't do ok, but Draigo is very expensive at this point level, and you would basically be forced to combat squad the pallies to get 2 PsyC per squad to get some ranged firepower for different targets.

thats the improved list. I thought screwing 5 pallies wouldn't be such a great idea, but it gived me space to fill in land raider, which will be the main anti-tank

I actually like the Draigo + 15 paladins and a NDK list best among those.

I personally like this one, as it includes draigo and Vindicare assassin, which i love. Will both these lists lack tank busters? And how will they do in tournaments?

I find that in 1500 point games and below, Draigo is just too expensive. I know he's totally awesome and paladins are beast, but don't forget the rest of the codex! My favorite troop choice is the 10 man GKSS

10x GKSS: MC DH, 2x Psycannons, Psybolt ammo, Rhino...all for only 295 pts!

This squad (especially when use with sanctuary and shrouding from a libby) is surprisingly durable, moves fast, quite capable of holding points and dishing out a ton of s5 and psycannon shots. A libby or a grand master would be a more cost effective HQ choice. A libby with three powers and three skulls will run for 190 pts, and when running with two of those GKSS only costs 775 pts, which leaves plenty of room to stuff your army with paladins to your heart's content Very Happy

Also, the "Psyfleman" dread (Dreadnought: 2x twin link autocannons , psybolt ammo - 135pts) is one of the best units our codex has to offer. Huge range with tons of shots means lots of cover for your mid/close range troops.

As much as I like paladins, and the idea of a full pali army, there's just not enough bodies on the field to be really competitive. Paladins are absurdly powerful and I will run a squad of 6 (MCDH, 2x psycannons, brotherhood banner, 4x halberds - 410 pts) they still need the support of their battle brothers and the psychic might of their Librarians to strike down the heretics before them! So im certainly not saying my advice is the best thing ever, but from spectating 1500 point draigo wings against massive horde armies...i really have to recommend against it...2000 points is totally different tho Razz
