Lords of the Chapter ( HQ choices)

Post by Liberian Martel on Wed Feb 18, 2015 2:43 am

Greetings Brothers, may your teleports be accurate and your blows strike true.
I was Just courious as to what Hq choices do people field and what you equip them with?

I always Field Grand Libarian Martel I equip him with a Daemon hammer ( for we are the HAMMER!) Lvl3, stormbolter ( sometimes) and normally the Cuirass of sacrifice or the Domina Liber Demonica. Martel has always preformed incredibly well and has killed things from a monolith to several Avatars & hive tyrants to blood thirsters and other "Greater" (loser) Daemons,

I've never fielded a Techmarine as i find them a little less useful does anyone field them in gk lists?

Techmarine as an HQ is really bad. No reason to take it whatsoever. Librarian on the other hand is a great choice, in fact the best generic HQ there is for us.

I have never found a reason not to field a Libby as my main HQ. Only decision is whether to give him the Domina Liber Daemonica and roll on Santic or to take something else.

The new libby is better especially with the DLD or curiass of sacrifice.

Yeah I always take the book with the Libby. They're so good now for the points. I equip mine with ML3, a combi-melta (because deep striking melta has won me games) and I usually keep the stave unless I know I'm fighting necrons or dark eldar.

Stern isn't bad as the guaranteed Sanctuary is pretty sweet. I haven't had the opportunity to run Crowe in this edition.

Has anyone run a Dread Knight as an HQ?

I run my GKGM Aubec de Terrenoire de Casteljaloux, because for me a GM is the incarnation of a brotherhood, more than a Libbie - which is great now though - and my GM never gets out without his MC Psycannon and because of his History he fights with a MC sword (and because it's cheaper too ! Razz )
I never tried a HQ NDK ... yet ! Wink

you cannot run him as HQ. but you can select any character in your army to be the warlord.
so even a justicar is able to be your warlord.

I have run my NDK as a warlord several times... it's amazing how good it becomes, specially with it will not die or feel no pain results from Personal Traits (5 and 6)

My other option is a Brother Captain / Grand Master with the soul glaive and a Psilencer. I attach him to a Purgators Squad with 4 psilencers.
This way you can ensure that Force will be activated. It's amazig what 30 Force shoots can do... just ask riptides and centurion squads... haha

I am glad to hear about the NDK performing so well. But this is the first time I have ever heard someone talk do highly o psylancers.

For my purifier army I went a little different, I use a brotherhood champion as an HQ with a Dread Knight as the warlord. The big guy is an attention sponge after you declare him a warlord so your opponent takes everything he has wasting shots on him, but a Dread Knight can take quite a bit of punishment! So much so your opponent never even thinks about the HQ killer too small to bother with. Wink
