Grey knights with IG

Post by duncndisorderly on Mon Aug 27, 2012 1:52 am

So I'm planning on putting together a 1500 pt lit with he IG fulfilling the role of allies, simply because I have always found we could use more las spam and heavy weapons. My plan is as follows
1 commissar
1 command squad
2 infantry squads
Heavy weapon unit of 2 las cannon and 1 auto cannon
Approx 330 points

1 GM with incinerator and psy powers
Halberd
Servo skulls 3
200pts

Strike squad 10 man 200
2 psycannon 20
6 Halberds 30
Psybolts 20
270

Strike squad 10 man 200
2 psycannon 20
6 Halberds 30
Psybolts 20
270

2 tlac dread with psy bolts 270
1330 total

So my question is simple, how would you spend the remaining points ?
Interceptors ?
Leman russ tank?
Transports?

All suggestions appreciated

you've got heavy weapons for the tanks, so, imho, interceptors and rhinos for the GKSS would be the best.
and personally i prefer the psycannon for my GM than the cinnie... more power and more range ... Wink

I\'ve been thinking about IG allies too - based around the ability to get 2 leman russ variants and 2 vendetta's from one allies FOC.

The question is what to take as troops and HQ choices and what to leave out of my grey knight list.

I'd take a vendetta. Lots of lascannons, and a way to fight back against other flyers!

Omg... Where to start... With noobish idea... First of all...


1. Don't take halberds on your strikes squads. You want to hold objectives and shoot. Not charge into combat and die. Save the points for elsewhere.
2. Grey knights are a shooty army. With adequate Close combat.
3. I don't know what psy powers you are referring to. You only get hammerhand. Unless the gm has an assault unit to go with... Give him a strombolter... If you have the spare 5pts add the ammo.

Razorbacks are probably better in your case.

As for allies... Oh where to begin.

Take a nice cheap commissar with power axe, melts bombs, camp cloak.
1 infantry platoon (5) squads would be nice. THAT WAY YIU HAVE FLEXABILITY. Very Happy

You have a tarpit/meat shield unit.
You can split it. 20/30. The 30 move up to hold a midfield objective back 20 can hold home objective.
Take the ADL for these guys!

There's more to say but my battery in my phone is almost out. Hope that helps.

There's more for the heavy support or fast attack options for allies ill post later.
