Librarian (HQ or Support)

Post by Akoni on Wed Aug 27, 2014 11:28 am

Last night I used my Librarian as a solo HQ/Warlord. Although I thought he performed amazing as a psyker, He died by Turn 3. One wound form Perils of the Warp, the last in the shooting phase. I was concerned about just how squishy he is with only 2 wounds. With so much at risk with suffering Perils of the Warp when casting psychic powers, or simply, succumbing to heavy dakka fire, I'm unsure of the benefits of running him as a Warlord or solo HQ. Do think its best to run them as pairs or a support role for a BC or GM?

i play 2 librarians. keep in mind that you can make ANY character your warlord. that means even a mere justicar can be your warlord or even a Nemesis Dreadknight!

Thanks Brother Souba! I'm always missing these details when I read the codex.

A Dreadknight with Feel no Pain would be freaking awesome! Nothing like taking an invul save with a reroll!

I'm actually curious what the new gear load out for a librarian would be now.

For me it would be the obligatory Mastery 3 upgrade and/or Domina Liber Daemonica with Storm Bolter, the combi-bolter is a nice touch but I don't like relying on one-shot gimmicks. The nemesis warding staff is actually pretty good as a default weapon but I've read here and there that the Daemon Hammer is better (when attached to a squad) and leaving the staff to be equipped by a termy instead.

What are your thoughts?

Great observation on the Dreadknight warlord. I always issue challenges with mine but disconnect when choosing a character as warlord

I dont have the rules with me but our Libby has a Hood right? Would the benefit of the Staff (adamantium will) affect the Hood (i.e. improved deny the witch for units within x inches)?

Indeed it does. A libby with staff always denys on 4+ and if his mastery level is higher than the enemy its on a 3+. That works with his hood aswell. Considering we reroll deny rolls of 1 thanks to aegis.

Keep in mind that all those bonuses only work against maledictions and witchfires. Blessings and conjurations are still on 6's

Hail brothers,

Ive used a Dreadknight as my warlord and it is quite awesome. I will not forget the face of my opponent, when I rolled "6" for Personal Trait of my NDK warlord:-D:-D:-D.
