2 7th Edition Armies

Post by Rion on Sat Jun 07, 2014 12:41 pm

Got a couple of army options I came up with after reading the 7th Edition rule book. Option 2 really has 2 variants but I'm only going to give variant 1 until I get some opinions.

Just looking it over Option 1 has more army wide mobility but really can't play games of attrition (I've tried to my shame forgive me brothers  Sad ). Where as Option 2 can take a pounding but most of the army (even when combat squaded) is really only able to hang on the back field and objective camp.

Option 1
HQ
Crowe - 150
Librarian Rion - 200
- Psyker lvl 3 (Daemonology Santic)

Troops
10 Terminators - 475
- 2 Daemonhammers, 7 Swords/Halberds, 1 Brotherhood Banner, 2 Psycannons

5 man Purifier - 190
-2 Psycannons, Psyback

5 man Purifier - 190
-2 Psycannons, Psyback

5 man Purifier - 190
-2 Psycannons, Psyback

5 man Purifier - 190

Heavy Support
Psyflemen Dreadnought - 135

Psyflemen Dreadnought - 135
- 2 Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Psyflemen Dreadnought - 135
- 2 Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Total=1990

Option 2
HQ
Librarian Rion - 205
-Digital Weapons, Psyker lvl 3 (Divination)
Librarian Karas - 205
-Digital Weapons, Psyker lvl 3 (Daemonology Santic)

Troops

Hello Brother!!

First I think you have done a small calculation mistake with the PAGK as 10 of them with 2x Psycannons come at 220 points .. I think you should give them Psybolts also , so they are at 240 points each .. Both the Librarians are going to join the GKT squad?? If yes why don't you upgrade to Justicar Thawn and leave one of them home? That way you can also give them Psybolts ..

With the above changes you 'll have 90 points to spend .. Give 2 of your PAGK Rhinos and spend the final 5 points to master craft your Librarian's sword..

Hope this helps!!

Welcome to the forum Brother Athelor great to have new members.

It's more of the fact I'm a terrible typist then my math as to why the PAGK point count is wrong  lol! . Now as to unit's I've got nothing against Justicar Thrawn, he's decent in a fight, Level 2 Psyker, Fearless (there are pros and cons there but that's meh), and can never die. However he's a grand total of 115 points. Personally I'd rather not spend that many points on a single model unless it's either an HQ/Vehicle/Monstrous Creature. For the cost of Thrawn I can take an extra Strike Squad with Cannon and MC justicar weaponry. (If I wasn't using the entirety of my PAGK models already  lol! )

That being said you did give me some ideas. Dropping the second Libby I can give my PAGK Rhinos giving them the same mobility as Variant 1 of my original post therefore making it the better option. And throwing in Psybolt Ammo to the Termies because I have the points to spare. Adding Coteaz cause I find Divination's Primius Power much better/more versatile then Mastercrafting my weapons. And as a back up Psyckic powerhouse I am left with this list:

HQ
Librarian Rion - 210
-Digital Weapons, Psybolt Ammo, Psyker lvl 3 (Daemonology)
Lord Inquisitor Bradley* (Follows Coteaz's rules) - 100 (Divination)

Troops
10 Terminators - 495
- 7 Swords/Halberds, 1 Brotherhood Banner, 2 Psycannons, 2 Daemonhammers, Psybolt Ammo

10 PAGK - 260
- 2 Psycannons, Rhino

10 PAGK - 260
- 2 Psycannons, Rhino

10 PAGK - 260
- 2 Psycannons, Rhino

Heavy Support
Psyflemen Dreadnought - 135
- 2 Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Psyflemen Dreadnought - 135
- 2 Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Psyflemen Dreadnought - 135
- 2 Twin-linked Autocannon, Psybolt Ammo

Total=1990

For games where more firepower is needed. I can drop the Psybolt ammo for Psybacks and drop both Psybolt and Coteaz for LaserBacks against Mechanized Armies.

*Information on Lord Inquisitor Bradley can be found in the fluff section.
