returning back to 40k after 10 years and need some help

Post by greyknightsnoob on Mon Jan 21, 2013 7:12 am

I\'ve restarted the hobby and currently building gk and ba 2000pt army, I understand my model count is low, and I understand I will loose pretty much most of the time but I like playing elite. Please tear me apart, your suggestion's and explanation's will be greatly appreciated. so far I have;

------------------------------------------------------
DEATH COMPANY LOAD OUT - ALLIES
------------------------------------------------------

10 Death Company JP Assualt troops 200pts (TROOPS)
8 Power weapon, bolt pistol 150 (should I leave the power weapons to save on points?)
2 Thunder Hammer, 60
(entire squad has jump packs) 150

Lemartes, Guardian of the lost 150

Death Company Dreadnought 125 (TROOPS)
Meltagun free
2 Blood Talons free
Magna Grapple 15
Search Light 1 (pesky Necrons)


TOTAL - 854pts

--------------------------------------------------------
GREY KNIGHTS
--------------------------------------------------------

Librarian 150 (HQ) (need to choose skills)

10 Grey Knight Terminator Squad 400 (Troops | Split into 2 x 5 man squads)
1 Justicar with Daemon Hammer free
2 Psycannon 50
all has Nemesis force halberds free
1 Brotherhood Banner 25 (May not need if splitting into 5 man squads)

Land Raider Crusader 255 (HEAVY SUPPORT)

Will get a Flier with remaining points and extra units if you feel I should drop anything.

Welcome to the forums Brother!

I like elite armies as well. With the addition of a SR, your list looks good for the theme you're going for. I do think that even for an elite army, you really have a low body count.

The death company would be fun to play and their mobility would compliment the terminators well but they are a real points sink. The problem is you only have 10 scoring models.

Lose your terminators and you lose the game.

24 models at 1750 would definately be fun and make for a quick game though you wont be the most competative - should that matter to you.
