First ever GK army list - advice needed and wanted

Post by Brakkus on Sun Feb 12, 2012 1:27 pm

Brothers,

After looking through the codex, I feel I am ready to post up my first ever GK army list. I am looking for any type of criticism that can help me make my list better. Please, let me know anything I need to change/adjust or anything that I may have gotten right! Very Happy I have yet to buy any models so I'm trying to lay out the army I want so I don't waste any money. With that being said, here's the list

HQ:
Librarian: 170
-Sanctuary
-Warp Rift
-Might of Titan
-The Shrouding

Troops:
Terminator Squad: 225
5 models
-3 Halbreds
-1 Hammer
-Psycannon
-Justicar with Hammer

Terminator Squad: 225
5 models
-3 Halbreds
-1 Hammer
-Psycannon
-Justicar with Hammer

Terminator Squad: 225
5 models
-3 Halbreds
-1 Hammer
-Psycannon
-Justicar with Hammer

Fast Attack: 330
Interceptor Squad
10 models
-7 Halbreds
-2 Psycannons
-Justicar with Hammer
-Squad has psybolt ammo

Heavy Support: 270
Dreadnought
-2 TLAC
-Psybolt ammo

Dreadnought
-2 TLAC
-Psybolt ammo


I'm a bit unsure on the interceptor squad. After reading around the forum, I found that most people voice that they aren't very effective without a full 10 man squad. I could use their shunt move to help distract/tie up a unit that might be a threat to my termies, dreads or HQ. I was tossing around the idea of combining 2 of the terminator squads and then combat squading them if necessary. This could allow me to have the psycannons in one unit for a bit of fire support and the other unit could be more of a cc unit. Also, the libby can support where needed. Would The Summoning be worth taking on him if a unit needs to be pulled across the board quickly? If my math is correct this is a 1450 point list so there's some wiggle room for changes/upgrades if need be. Thank you in advance brothers for any and all advice.

At all not bad. Your list needs some transports. A Land Raider or a Stormraven would be a good idea. In case of the SR i would change the armament of one of the dreads to Assault Cannon and DCCW with heavy flamer. The dread could support the transported terminator squad after they have disembarged.

Brother,

Thank you for the reply. I know the list lacks mobility, which is why I decided upon the interceptor squad. Looking back over it and reading the codex again, I am starting to think that the halbreds on the interceptor squad are kind of pointless. They only have one base attack and if I don't get the charge then the halbreds won't do much for me. If I drop the halbreds and keep the base swords that will net me back another 35 points for a total of 85 points to work with. I could then combine 2 of the 3 terminator squads to make a squad of 10 and add 2 more terminators to the 3rd squad and could add psybolt ammo to the libby with the remaining points. I think this might be a better idea as it gives me 2 additional bodies and I can still combat squad the 10 man terminator squad at the beginning of the game. I know this doesn't help my list with mobility, but it can give it a bit more flexibility and survivability overall. When I jump up to the 2000 point platform I will look into adding a Storm Raven or Land Raider. Again, thank you for the comment.
