1500 - Advice?

Post by xxunphasedxx on Wed Oct 26, 2011 10:37 pm

Hello Brothers.
I am new...ish to warhammer 40k. I would not say i am a complete noob, I had collected space marines for many years, and have about 2500 points worth. Although I had this army for like 7 years, I had never had never played a game. I then wanted to try something new. I decided the new grey knights were for me. Recently a games shop opened near me and I have started playing. i have played 3 games, I have won 2 games vs eldar and I played one 3 way battle against eldar and space marines. I fell just short to the space marines on victory points in the last turn. All these games were small points, 750-1250. I am trying to develop a slightly competitive list. I know that twin auto cannon dreads are the best but I don't have the money to get them or are they really worth the money? I will soon get a dread knight, which loadout and role is the best? Any advice is appreciated, and please be nice, I am still kinda new.

1500
Grand Master = 210
Psychoke Grenades, Rad Granades, Mc Nemesis Force Sword, Psybolts

Librarian = 170
Psybolt ammo, 3 psychic powers (1. Shrouding, 2. Might of Titan, 3. Varies Depending on enemy)

Strike Squad x5 = 110
4x Nemisis Force Swords, 1x psycannon

Terminators x5 = 220
Psybolt ammo, Nemesis Force Halberds

Terminators x5 = 240
Psybolt ammo, Nemesis Force Halberds, Psycannon

Paladins x5 = 290
Nemesis Force Swords & Daemon Hammer, Psybolt Ammunition

Vindacare Assassin = 145

Dreadnought = 145
Twinlinked Lascannon, Nemisis Doomfist

My Grand master will join my paladins (kill things) , librarian will accompany a squad of terminators, SS will sit on the closest objective, and vindicare and dread will target vehicles and leaders. if I were to play a horde army I could sub pallies & strike squad for a rhino full of purifiers with 9 halberds, 1 daemon hammer. or 2 incinerators. i am working on a purifier list too, i am thinking 30 or so purifiers with rhinos.

Thanks, xxunphasedxx.

Suggestions:

Drop the psy ammo from the GM and LIB, not guna make that much difference.

Make sure both Term squads have a Psycannon - dropping more psy ammo if you need to. The 4 Psycannon shots will come in more usefull than the +1 strength to Storm Bolters.

Add a few Hammer's into your squads - they come free with the Terminators, I take at least one in each squad just in case.

For a Dreadnought loadout I prefer:
Twin Autocannon + Psy ammo 135pts
Multi Melta / Dread Close Combat Weapon (DCCW) / Incinerator (Heavy Flamer + Psyflame) 125pts

First off, welcome to the forums Brother! Smile

Agree with Brother DOMIN4TRIX' suggestions. The psycannons will give you more punch than S5 stormbolters.
