500 points limit. what to take?

Post by Corennus on Fri Oct 25, 2013 6:37 am

i've recently been asked to come up with a list for a friendly game with a newbie who doesn't have masses of models to call on yet. I have offered him my collection to use, but going to start him off at 500 points so he can get to grips well with a few core units instead of a full blown game.

Any ideas?

I'm thinking Inquisition personally. give him a good gunline with around 4 chimaeras full of servitors/jokaeros etc...

but maybe should go Strike Squads or Purifiers?

maybe let him read a bit through the codex first and/or ask him what he likes about grey knights. the grey knight aspect of them or the inquisitorial aspect. or maybe both Smile

after that make a list i guess Smile

decided:

Librarian
The Summoning
Sanctuary
The Shrouding
Digital Weapons
170

TROOPS

Strike Squad 1 (10 man)
Psycannons x 2
220

Strike Squad 2 (5 man)
Psycannon
110

500

3 Psycannons should be able to take on anything at 500 points. Everything has a 3+ save, except Librarian of course.
Librarian can Shroud the big Strike squad, and Summon the small strike squad as needed.

Plus we have force weapons and storm bolters into mix over an Inquisition force....

So yeah i'll advise him on this list

I like this list. I am glad to see that you/he went with GK
