1500 pt

Post by SandMarauder on Tue Sep 22, 2009 5:50 pm

Ok didn't get to play in the tourny this weekend with my 1750 list, but there is a 1500 point tourny coming up on 17 Oct at my local FLGS, so I am putting something together for it.

HQ

1 x GM w/ph, mc, hh
retinue x 5 w/incie (435)

2 x 8 PAGK w/ 1 x psy and 1 x incie
Justicars w/ Frag (261)

1 x Dread w/TLLC and ML (140)
1 x Dread w/TLLC and DCCW w/incie (145)

1 x LRC w/smoke (258)

1500

Want to use the dreads to support the PAGK and make sure that the LRC makes it to where I want it to go.

Good list IMO. You may consider giving one of your dreads a CCW w/ a 'cinnie. This might come in handy if your dread needs to take out a vehicle at close range or to tie up enemy units to keep them away from your objective or what not.

This will still leave you w/ 10 pts (+10 for the ml/-15 for the 'cinnie). May I suggest either hammerhand for your GM or maybe MB's for your justicars. Personally, hammerhand gives my GM just that added flexibility of taking out enemy dreads just in case Very Happy

Looks solid. Though I prefer it, not many players have both a psycannon and 'cinnie in the same squad. For tournaments, I like the mix of both so all your squads can multi-task. Was it the World Wide War tournie you couldn't make last weekend?

Yes, that was going to break my tourny "cherry". They only had 10 players so I thought it would be a good time to go to a tourny and not feel overwhelmed. This next tourny is at the FLGS that I go too once a week. Its their very first tourny for 40k. Most of the players play SM, but there is a Chaos, Nids, DE and another GK player there.

Considering that it was a 'worldwide' tournie it ended up to be quite a disappointment with so few clubs running anything. See if that other GK player is part of this site and extend an invitation if he isn't. Smile

I am also going to take a look at a slimmed down version of my 1750 list

HQ - GM w/ MC-NFW, PH, HH plus retinue of 3 GKTs (1 incinerator) (343)

TR - 8 PAGKs (melta bomb, 2 x incinerators) (250)
TR - 7 PAGKs (targeter, 2 x psycannon) (251)

HS - LRC w/ SmL (258)
HS - LRC w/ SmL (258)
HS - Dread w/TLLC, ML (140)

=1500

Plan is that the 1 PAGKs and Dread sit back in support or obj security, while the LRCs w/terms and 1 squad of PAGK w/incies do the normal and assault. C&C welcomed.

p.s. I know that the GK are a finese(sp) unit, but I think that I like to get in their face. I just like the fluffiness and the models. I am starting a DW assaulty unit too, that will have 2 LRC w/assault terms and 1 shooty term units. I like termies......

I like this list! Definitely an "in your face" style of play Very Happy

is GM w/ 3 GKT enough or should I drop 1 pagk from each squad and go another GKT?

I would probably just drop 1 PAGK to make it an even 7-man squad each and drop 1 psycannon to give your GM one more GKT. I know the psycannon gives you range but you do make it up in close combat when the need arises. Just my thoughts...

As Rivan said, another GKT would be a wise choice. With your Termies you'll want to have enough bodies to get the job done quickly. Having them stuck in a second round of close combat is not a good thing considering you have only 3 infantry units to begin with.

After some playtesting, I have came up with this

HQ BC w/ MC-NFW, PH, plus retinue of 5 GKTs (1 incinerator) (341)

TR - 10 PAGKs (1 x incinerators, frag, targeter) (287)
TR - 5 PAGKs (auspex, targeter, frag, 2 x psycannon) (204)

HS - LRC w/ SmL (258)
HS - LRC w/ SmL (258)
HS - Dread w/TLLC, DCCW w/incie (EA) (150)

=1498

Ok obviously the mini purgation sqd is for obj defense. The Dread will be in support of either the LRC or the mini-purg of both. HQ w/retinue and full PAGK sqd in LRC melting face (hopefully)

I like it! Definitely a tough list at 1500 pts.

Maybe just a minor thing (and its just me)...but I would probably consider transferring 1 PAGK b/w squads to make it a 9-man and a 6-man. I'm just thinking that 1 extra PAGK won't be missed much in the big squad but will definitely count a lot w/ the home-objective squad should it come into close combat w/ the extra 2 str6 attacks. Theoretically for the big squad, they will jump out of the LRC, unleash hell (and holy flame) before assaulting so the enemy unit will most probably be whittled down already.

That's just me though. I think the list is totally competitive as it is Very Happy

One accurate pie-plate and that psycannon squad is gone. I'd even go one farther than what Rivan has suggested: 8 and 7-man squads respectively.

Good, but I'd still spread the GK models more evenly between the two squads.
