New army 2k-2.5k points. Need advice!

Post by Brother Konrad on Thu Apr 26, 2012 10:08 pm

Hey guys its been a while since i've been on this fourm and its good to be back. I'm all chaos'd out (for all you who didn't know i play csm army as well), and decided to go back to my neglected grey knights for a bit.
I haven't really decided what kind of army I am actually going to do so I ask YOU! 1k-2.5k point army lists, suggestions, whatever, post it! Smile
I have played a purifier army before although I am a bit rusty with gk fluffiness so excuse me if I do get anything wrong. I prefer assaulty armies but if you have an absolute full proof shooty army I would be quite intrested as I really have never actually played a shooty army. I digress lol! But this is my beta army so far (note nothing is 100% yet, this is not competitive!!!)

**
Strike Force Talon

HQ:
Lord Kaldor Draigo - 275

Librarian Cyril Bennet – 220: Master crafted warding stave, digital weapons, warp rift and might of titan, 3x servo skulls

Elites:
Vernable dreadnought Corvus – 195: 2 TL autocannons with psybolt ammo

Vernable dreadnought Korinthos – 195: 2 TL autocannons with psybolt ammo

Vindicare Assassin - 145

Troops:
5 Paladins “Titan’s Light” – 405: Apothecary, 3x master crafted halberds, 1 master crafted demon hammer, 1 brotherhood banner

5 Paladins “Titan’s Purity” – 405: Apothecary, 3x master crafted halberds, 1 master crafted demon hammer, 1 brotherhood banner

Fast Attack:
Stormraven “Sky Raider” – 225: Psybolt ammo

Stormraven “Silver Wing” – 225: TL multi melta, psybolt ammo

Heavy Support:
Dreadknight “Triton” – 185: Great sword and heavy incinerator

Total: 2475 points for only 18 models!



So thats it guys, tell me what you think?
*edit added apos to paladin squads
**edit first final draft army

Well that list there is about 1950 points without upgrades.
It also only has one troop!

If you love your Grey Knights it won't matter if you end up with extra units, but its also good to have a game plan on what kind of lists you'll run and what to include in each.

Probably should have explained that that 1 squad of paladins was a base build for my other paladin squads (so its not one but maybe 2).
I am compiling a new list should have it up soon.

I need advice on grenades as I look at them and their bonuses are very nice, only downfall is that they cost a good amount, the character holding them could die easily, my old GM that had them, was replaced by draigo and im beggining to think that I either lose the libby or scrap draigo (in where i would need to fine 2 cheap troop choices). Or of course no grenades at all? What do you guys think?

The toughest character you can give grenades to is the Grandmaster. Costly, yes, but he also brings Grand Strategy which really makes your list flexible.

Cheapest way to get grenades is the Xenos Inquisitor. Less survivable but a lot less points.

There's also the Techmarine. Not a bad choice also. Really depends on how you tailor your list.

I personally almost always use a GM w/ blind, rad and psychostroke. Cost: 220pts but he really buffs any unit he is attached to--especially if its a 10-man Paladin unit Smile

I agree with Brother Rivan about the GM. It's one of my favorite HQs. Rad and psychostroke are a very nasty combination. And the Grand Strategy is also a fine thing.

So replace the libby then? I need draigo for my 2 pally troop choice or else I won't have enough points to field everything i want. What do you guys recommend on slimming down this list?

You could loss the Apothecarys, they are not really worth it in a 5 man maybe in a 10 man squad
Also I find that the Dreadknight is 200% more effective with a jump pack

Hope this helps Very Happy

Well the PT is 75 points and the way I see it a DK is basically a monstrous terminator that attracts all manner enemy firepower. In other words he dies too fast for me to invest many points in him, especially when i'm out of points to invest.

As for the apos I cannot tell you how many times FnP has saved my extremely overpriced units form death, but I do understand about the point cost and usually I don't take them unless my pally squads have 5+ men in a squad.

Depends how you play, if you are really offensive with your dreadknight you can get into combat really early with the PT which guarantees he gets to kill some stuff.

Its also viable to use him as a fire sync though, and cheaper.

9/10 times my DK dies by turn 2-3, he kills roughly a unit or some units (barely enough to pay back his point cost). I try to keep his points cost low as he attracts too much attention for me to rely heavily upon.
