Hello!! and What say YOu??

Post by Athelor on Sat May 25, 2013 6:42 am

Hello brothers and well met!! New recruit here and I can't tell you how good it feels to be among your fellow battle brothers pirat

A small introduction of myself (i know boring so I 'll keep it short) ..Walking upon the hard soil of this planet for 26 whole years (a couple of them crouching really Razz ) never got the chance of being introduced in wargaming until I watched my mentor (sadly or not a space wolf player) crushing his archenemy's army of Chaos Space Marine in the fields of constant battle (our local store actually Laughing ) ..I was until then just another RPG (mostly fantasy) player but then I got this awkward feeling in my stomach and realized that I had to eat something Question ANYWAY
that's how I introduced to 40k both game and story novels and since then I play with my knights to glorious battles Very Happy

As for the game itself (40k) I have some specifics as a player witch I ought to share with you:
a) I like to play pure Grey Knights army and not Inquisitorial lists .. Alright I maybe add Coteaz or Ordo Malleus in termie armor in my list but that's as far I like to go with pure Inquisition ,a! I don't have any problem with the assassins so a Vindicare is also another model I like to add

b)I don't know what's happening with me but I guess every family has its black sheep and I hope someone here will understand at least and not necessarily agree to this next statement : "I don't like Dredknights" affraid

other than that I think I'm a regular brother at arms Very Happy

Now I like to share with you my in-development list and if someone can share any thoughts or suggestions through constructive criticism I 'll appreciate.

2000 point list (I intent to take part at a campaign next month and these are the maximum points game)

Hq:

Grand master w/ sword + storm bolter 175
Ordo malleus Inq w/ termie armor + thunder hammer + phycannon + psyker lvl 1 110

Troops:

10x Terminators w/ 5x halberds + 3x swords + 2x hammers + 2x psycannons + psybolt ammo 470
10x Strike Squad w/ 7x swords + 1x hammer + 2x psycannons + psybolt ammo 250
10x Strike Squad w/ 7x swords + 1x hammer + 2x psycannons + psybolt ammo 250

Elites:

10x Purifier Squad w/ 5x halberds + 1x sword + 4x psycannons 290
1x Vindicare assassin 145

Heavy Support:

1x Dreadnought w/ 2x Twin-linked autocannons + psybolt ammo 135
1x Dreadnought w/ 2x Twin-linked autocannons + psybolt ammo 135

Dedicated transport:

1x Rhino w/ storm bolter 40

For tactics I generally have the termies combat squad half of them with Grand-Master (combat oriented unit which Deep Strikes) the others (2x psycannons) with malleus for 3x relentless psycannons with re-rolls walking around the table . In Rhino I get a Strike squad or Purifiers depending enemy and scenario

another thought is to add a Librarian w/ sword + strom bolter + might of titan + summoning (160points) and in that case I like to add 1x Dreadnought w/ Twin-linked heavy flamer + Close combat weapon + flamer + warp stabilisation field (135 points) but I don't know what I should leave behind (meaning witch Hq and then witch other unit(s) )

For your information in the campaign there would be little or maybe not at all flyer units so no worries there Very Happy
Thanks in advance and "We are the Hammer"!!!

Welcome to the forum!

A strong, varied list - I like it.

My only concern is a lack of transports, do you intend to deepstrike the Strike Squads?

If so you might find servo skulls useful, the OMI can have 3

Or do you plan to outflank? As I feel this is the main benefit the GM brings to this list (where you already have a reasonable amount of scoring bodies.)

First and foremost Thanks for your replies and comments I feel honored!! Very Happy

I too prefer better the Librarian as I'm trying to go pure Grey Knights and also I'm intrigued with the things he can add to the list!

Meaning I have to find 50 more points in order to include him, now I'm thinking that if I take out the rhino (40) + 1x psycannon in purifier squad adding a flamer (which is free) (10) I 'll be able to find these extra 50 points but by doing this I'll trade 2x psycannons (1x relentless) and my only transportation ..mmmm okay since I can cope with it (meaning less shooting but more tactical choices + a bit more close combat oriented list) but then something inside me tells me I ought to add this close combat + flamers Dreadnought (I like close combat Dreadnoughts a lot you see Twisted Evil ) and now I'm thinking : should it take Vindicare's position which also going to give me 2x servo skulls (145 vs 135 points) + going "pure" GK or just trade it for one of the Psyflemen??

This is what I really like to play actually, my question is do you believe I have same chances of victory (cause pleasure of just playing the game is guaranteed Very Happy ) with these changes? any other suggestions about the above?

And one question I have , after thanking you about bringing up the outflank rule, ..emm.. if my reinforcements arrive and I have outflank (via Grand-master) and say they're arriving from left side of the table do they still have to come from the edge of my deployment zone or I can bring 'em from dead zone or even my enemy's deployment zone??

Again thanks for your time and the warm welcoming Very Happy
