Newcomer army! Pointers Please! 750pts

Post by Inquisitor P on Thu Feb 23, 2012 4:53 am

Hi there, new here, this is my first post!

Firstly breif intro, ignore if you wish! Getting back into the hobby after 5-6 years break. Previously I was just collecting fantasy but always loved the GK models but also liked guard. I started getting back into it just before the new codex came out and was taken by the daemonhunters which enabled me to collect GK and guard, awesome...or so i thought! The new codex stopped all that. I must confess I have since been working on my guard as I had more models (take a look at my IG blog here: http://commissar.proboards.com/index.cgi....ay&thread=14436 - sorry for the shameless plug!) But alas the GK have been niggling at the back of my mind and I've decided I want to get a force together!

I am up for all criticism but bear in mind I havn't even played a game since I've got back into the hobby! I'm not a competive tourney player but I want something that is going to (eventually) be able to stand up for itself!

750pts seems to be the first stop on the way to a full size army, I'm also limited by the models I've already got and limited funds for new stuff!

Heres what I've thought:

HQ: Brotherhood Champ 100pts

Elites: 8 Purifiers, 1 hammer, 1 psycannon, 6 halberds 264pts (only configuration due to metal models)
Rhino 40pts

Troops:
5 GKT, Incinerator, 1 hammer, 1 sword, 3 halberds 205pts (only configuration due to metal models)
5 GKSS, 1 hammer, 1 psycannon, psybolts 140pts

Total 749pts


My thoughts are:
-termies are termies, pretty good as is
-purifiers seem to be lethal at CC, chuck in the brotherhood champ and race em into combat with rhino
-SS with psybolts is my shooty unit, perhaps deepstrike in and shoot stuff
pretty sketchy plan i know!

Its probably not the best list and is only a starting block, I know a big unit of purifiers is a bit much but I really like the idea of them and I will expands to a bigger force. Any pointers on what to add next would be good, 1000pts being the next hurdle, I also have a vindicare and some inquistors. Any pointers welcome! Many thanks!

Brother Inquisitor P,

Welcome to the forums.

I beleive the next step would be to add some heavy support and Anti tank - in the form of the Psyriflmen. (That is a dreadnought with 2 Twin linked autocannons and Psybolt ammo) At 135 pts a piece that should get you to over 1000 pts for 2.
The other option to consider would be to look at a GM rather than a Brotherhood Champion.
I found this thread to be good for some pointers on where to start.

all the best with quest to purge in the name of the emperor.

welcome on board brother
for 750 points i think your list and plans are not so bad.
you could maybe change the BChamp for a Libbie (a little libbie that is or you have to find the points somewhere Razz Razz ) ... scratch

Thanks for the quick feedback guys. I'll take 'not so bad' as a big compliment as its my first attempt at a list! Psyrifleman sounds good as theres little anti-tank. As soon as I upgrade army size a GM or Libbie would be my HQ choice for sure.

Any more pointers welcome!
