1500 pts newcomer armylist

Post by Asahiro on Wed May 30, 2012 3:08 am

Dear brothers,

Im very new to your rank and this is my first attempt to build up GK army - please, could you check and give my your feedback:

HQ:
Inquiz - blank - 25 pts
Grey Knight Brother Captain - nemesis falchions + psychostroke grenades - 175 pts

ELITES:
10x Purifiers squad - 3x incinerator, 5x halberds, 2x hammer - 260 pts
Henchmen - 3x servitors (3x heavy bolters) + 1x jokaero weaponsmith - 65 pts

TROOPS:
10x Strike squad - 2x psycannon, psyammunition - 240 pts
5x Terminators - 1x incinerator, brotherhood banner, 3x halberd, 2x hammer - 230 pts

FAST:
2x Stormraven gunship (twin-linked lascannons + multimeltas) - 2x 205 = 410 pts

TRANSPORTS:
1x Rhino - 40 pts
1x Chimera - 55 pts
--------------------------------
TOTAL = 1500 pts

Strategy - very simple strategy - fast moving stormravens rush forward (purifiers and termis+captain onboard) to eliminate core of the enemy army and cause as much damage as possible. Long range support from chimera (henchmen onboard). Strike squad forms two combat squads - shooting part onboard of rhino, 5 man squad to hold home objective.

Thanks,
Brother Asahiro

Brother Asahiro.

Welcome to the forums.

Firstly I would upgrade your Brother Captain to a Grandmaster as the extra you get for the points is very worth it. Grand Stratergy has a big impact as you can use as per the scenario you are playing. Lose the ][ for the points going down to one HQ.

For long range support I would look at the Psyrifleman. (Dreadnought with 2 Twin linked Autocannons and Psy ammo (135 pts)) As you can no longer field the henchman squad and Chimera.

Psycannons are better than Incinerators, as they give you flexiblity to not have to ge to close to the emeny. Remember that when terminators are using them they get to be used in heavy mode while moving. by all means keep the incinerators if you are planning for close combat.

Falchions are not worth it for the points, there are better options, halberds if you want to strike first in combat or a warding stave if you want to stay around for a long time in the same case. You only get a single extra attack from a pair of falchions, not 1 per weapon and then 1 for extra hand weapon they adjusted it in the FAQ.

I hope that helps, I am sure my other brothers here will add comments to the list also.

All the best with your battles and cleanse the chaos with us.

Brother Flaxis

Welcome to the forums Brother!

Brother Flaxis brought up very valid and good points although I can see that you've geared your Purifiers for close-in combat assaulting out of the SR.

Borther Rivan has a valid point too! If you loose the Inquisitor, leave those servitors at home and add some Accolites with Hot shot LasGun. Another Jokaero and you have yourself a nice shooty unit. The B-banner on the Termies is not such a good idea. Perhaps using those points to buy some Psycannons for your Purifiers, another accolyte, or just some nice grenades for your HQ could be an option.

Hope it helps!
