Choice between 2 500pt Lists...Help!

Post by Maaku on Thu Aug 16, 2012 4:43 pm

Hello all,

For some time now I've been having a think as to which of my two lists to work towards for battling with some friends to learn the 6th ed rules, would just like some opinions on which list would be the best choice to start out with.

The chosen list will also then go on to be a focus point for my expanding army lists.

The first list is as follows.

HQ
Ordo Malleus Inquisitor
Power armour
Power Sword
Combi Melta
x2 Servo Skulls
Total 59 points

TROOPS
Grey Knight Strike Squad
x5 additional Grey Knights
x2 Psycannons
Psybolt Ammunition
Total 240 points

Grey Knight Strike Squad
x1 additional Grey Knight
x1 Psycannon
Psybolt Ammunition
Total 150 points

ELITE
Inquisitorial Henchmen Warband
x5 Psykers
Total 50 points

Total for list - 499 points

The second list is as follows -

HQ
Ordo Malleus Inquisitor
Power armour
Power sword
Combi-melta
x2 servo skulls
Total - 59 points

TROOPS
Grey Knight Strike Squad
x5 additional Grey knights
x2 Psycannons
Psybolt ammunition
Total 240 points

Grey Knight Terminator Squad
x4 Halberds
x1 Daemon Hammer
Total 200 points

Total for list - 499 points

I think your option of having Terminators is a great idea.

Not sure on both really, you could stick to 1 psybolt autocannon dread in there for long range.
I don't think psykers are worth it as if you roll a peril, they all die

Thanks for the feedback already! Very Happy My main concern is that one of my friends who I will be having a battle against soon uses necrons and has a Doomark in his 500 point list. I just hope that the terms can DS close enough to make use of the hammer.

I have had a few thoughts on getting some heavier weapons into such a small point cost, but only time will tell how that turns out.

Brother Maaku,

You can always get some more hammers in - say drop the psybolt ammo for 2 in the GKSS squad. As an alternative on list 2

How about this for a list at 500pts meeting FOC requirements.

1x OMI in Terminator armour with psycannon & Daemonhammer - 80pts

5x GKSS with Hammer and Psycannon - 120pts

5x GKSS with Hammer and Psycannon + Razorback with TLHB - 165pts

1x Dreadnought with 2x TLAC and psybolt ammo - 135pts

Total = 500pts

OR

1 x OMI in Terminator armour with Hammer and Stormbolter - 65pts

5x GKSS - 100pts

5x GK Terminators (one with a hammer) - 200pts

1x Dreadnought with TLAC and Psybolt ammo - 135pts

Total = 500pts

With regards to the terminators I would say to get a mixiture of weapons, say 2 swords, 2 halberds and a hammer. Make sure the swords are in the front row in the combat (when you charge) so you can use the 4+ invulnerable save. Perhaps my bothers would like to give some pointers on weapon loadouts for normal terminators.

Best of luck with the battles. I hope that the list above would also give you scope to build on as you go to higher points also.

Thanks for the alternative options Smile It's given me plenty of things to think about regarding lists and loadouts.

The only issue is that my OMI does not have the options for Terminator armor currently, will need to buy another model to get the correct representation. I've been considering an ammendment on the first list. To add some warrior acolytes to stick around the inquisitor and try to get a dread in.

The build for the first list was based on getting as many Psycannons in as poss. Although I feel that I need to get some form of heavy weapons in to take on the threat of any vehicles that come my way. So looking to build a list around a Psyfle Dread is going to be a key focus for the time being I feel.

Thanks again for everyones input. Got a lot more to think about and consider for my list builds.
