Very first list 1750

Post by Brother Martius on Sun Jun 08, 2014 3:04 am

Hi brothers, here's my first list...and I really need help. never had a game before in 40k, so don't know what I'd need on the battlefield, how to set HQ and units and what I'll face but, let's start:

HQ
Grey Knight Grand Master: Mastery Level 2,  Psycannon, Daemon Hammer 260
Librarian: Mastery Level 3,  Nemesis Warding Stave 215

ELITES
10 men Purifier Squad: 4 Psycannon 280
5 men Paladin Squad: 2 Psycannon, 1 Nemesis Warding Stave, 1 Daemon Hammer 335

TROOPS
10 men Grey Knight Terminator Squad: 1 Daemon Hammer,  4 Swords, 5 Halberds  400

tot. 1490

Ok, actually the backbone of the list is done (1750 because my gaming club uses this standard) and don't know how I shall fill the points left.I 'd like to have a balanced setting between ranged and close combat...basically an allcomer list. There are 260 points left and for sure I've set really crappy my HQ...could you please help me brothers?
Advices are more than welcome

Well first off you need two troop options to complete your army list, either spilt the 10 man terminator squad into a pair of 5 man squads to make the cut or purchase another big squad of termies if that's the route your going.

The daemon hammers are a good choice in the squads and the warding staves will offer good protection from big hits, but on independent characters or HQ it might bog them down, To get the same amount of damage you could equip your Grand Master with a sword (+1 Inv. in combat) or a halberd (+2 In.) so that he's got more survivability in close quarter combat and isn't going last in a fight.

The next I would offer in order to fill in your 250 points is to get some firepower! Dread Knights are good for that but if your looking for ranged support you could go with a pair of dreadnoughts armed with a pair of twin-linked auto-cannons upgraded with psy-bolt ammunition. Each Dread would be firing 4 str. 8 shots at 48' range and you can re-roll any misses. Essentially each dread could pop a tank per turn if your lucky.

Apart from that its a good start, as advice if your using warding staves, place the models equipped with them at the front to take the brunt of the incoming shots, that way you can mitigate any high powered weapons to him instead of the squad Wink

With 7th edition our old codex powers are obsolete, ignore that portion of the list. Grey Knight librarians get their powers from the Daemonology (sanctic), Divination, Pyromancy, Telekinesis and Telepathy disciplines.

There is no better or wrong choice with the psychic power list, all of them have traits you can use to full effect. But if you devote you Librarian or Grand Master to a single list of powers they get the primaris power for free.

Our troops automatically use Sanctic powers in their profile so if you want ot go that route go ahead, the list of powers is pretty strong.
