I've just started collecting Daemonhunters and I drew up a list using the ruleset for Patrol Clashes (it's in one of the White Dwarfs somewhere):
Inquisitor with bolt pistol, power weapon and purity seals 41pts
5 Storm Troopers, plasma gun 60pts
5 Storm Troopers, flamer 56pts
mounted in Chimera with turret multilaser, hull heavy bolter,
smoke launchers and extra armour 93pts
5 Grey Knights, justicar 150pts
What I'm not sure about is whether to use the Chimera (and to swap the multilaser for a heavy bolter) or a Rhino. The special weapons are also subject to change.
I'm not so confident about tactics in general too.
Any help would be gratefully accepted.
I'd drop the chimera to a rhino (or maybe keep the IST's on foot) because it'll be a much smaller board you play on as well as lower points, so there won't be much of a need to drive the IST's so far from your army. Use the extra points for a few more GK.
in a 400 point match, the Chimera willonly be worth its points if yall use the TVR rules, otherwise, loose it, give youre Inquisitor a Good shooty setup in its place......drop the flamer on the Stormies in favor of Plasma or Melta weapons, and consolidate them together
This help is good but could you give me like specific advice? Specific meaning like give him this bit of wargear and give him this etc. Thanks so far to those who have posted.
For your inquisitor, you mean? I'd give him a psycannon, targeter, and auspex, and a retinue with 2 HB servitors, 1 PC servitor, a sage, and a mystic. He'll be able to shoot infiltrators and deepstrikers when they show up, and makes a decent anti-anything squad.
Don't give him a power weapon - S3 in an army full of S6 isn't that good. If you decide you neeeeed him in combat, go with a T-Hammer for the strength boost. But if you go that way, drop the retinue for: 3 Combat Servitors, 1 familiar, and 2 acolytes with power armor (and give the Inq armor too).
I only have 400pts to spend you see...
If you've bought the chimera use it to save money. But if you haven't weigh your options. With the money you could bring your you strom trooper squads up to 10 men each and ten man squads are always good. Or you could drop the grey nights i mean why would you send the "crem de crem" (yes i know that's spelled wrong) out on patrol anyway :blink: ? And then add a second chimera, but more men in to youre storm trooper squads and have a very mobile force.
"you don't under stand, my empathy for you could fit in a match box, with the matches in it"
If you're talking a 40k in 40 minutes type game, I find this works well.
Squad A- 200 Points
4 Grey Knights
1 Grey Knight (Psycannon)
Squad B- 200 Points
4 Grey Knights
1 Grey Knight (Psycannon)
Put your troops on one flank, hopefully, your opponent will have spread his troops too thinly. Try to use cover so that you've only got one enemy squad shooting at you most of the time. Pick one squad and break it before moving to the next. Your entire force has assault weapons so keep moving. If you don't think you can assault through the enemy fire, stand off and use the psycannons to whittle down the numbers. Once their numbers are reduced, close and use the storm-bolters as the coup de grace.
ive been playing a lot of 40k in 40 mins, and ive found that Death-cult assassins are AWSOME....
Yep, death-cult assassins are really worth it... three might be overkill though.
And also check the rules, you probably can't take a plasma cannon, I don't think blast markers are allowed. If they are, however, I'd go with the shooty inquisitor retinue, but then again that's me.
I've played a 500pts "40k in 40 min" tournament with my DH's, using 2 inq's with psycannons and 1 heavy bolter servitor each, and one squad of GK's. Didn't go very well. The reason? too few units. Against a tau with 40 firewarriors you are smoked.
My best bet would be 20 stormtroopers (4 heavy weapons) and as many gk's you can field beyond that (if you can't take plasma cannons, that is)
Depending on opponent, use flamers against swarms and plasma against 3+ armor units... pretty basic
