this new dex seems to have alot of shooting capability. For those familiar with the rules in the new/leaked dex, I am wondering what to put in to finish off my list. I'm playing mostly a psycannon list with some henchmen thrown in for variety, and wondering which would compliment it best. I know it's premature but I plan on pre-ordering tonight as an online voucher expires then. Hopefully this won't only help me but others who are wondering what to take too.
So, here are my options with explanations:
- 2 Riflemen Dreads w. psybolt ammunition (with so many mid-range psycannons I might struggle against long-range, which is where these would come in handy)
- A Vindicare and Rifleman Dread w. psybolt ammo (a bit better versatility, can utilize the bonuses of both. Vindicares are as close to gauranteed to roll on the penetrating hit table against any vehicle as anything else. Problem here is I don't have any other vehicles in the game, so having one dread means it's gonna feel the full force of any anti-tank stuff. Same is true of the first option too but to half the extent.)
- A Dreadknight with heavy psycannon, gatling psilencer and personal teleporter (Quite pricey but can potentially kill just as much as the other options, and has much greater mobility. His ability to teleport means that he effectively has the greatest range too. Also seems to fit better with a tank-free army. Definitely the worst against tanks though, which is a pretty big downside.)
All are fairly close in points. Would love to hear everyone's thoughts!
just for the coolness factor, i would go with te dreadknight. If you are a little more serious, then I would recomend the two dreadnoughts. these guys would be deadly w/ psybolt ammo. are you going to take venerable dreads? Also, it might be helpfull to see the rest of your list so that we can make a more informed decision. Good luck!
I thought I'd better not put my army list in the general DH/GK discussion area. But I have posted a list that I would love some advising on! I decided not to spam psycannons in the end, but to go down a fairly balanced path. The list is here: http://www.librarium-online.com/foru...y-knights.html
I thought this thread might belong here because it's not just me that might be looking for some heavier ranged support.
for 100 points less than your dk and inquisitor w/ retinue you can take coteaz w/ 2 squads of 3 warrior acolytes armed with meltas or plasmas in chimeras. thatl pack a lot of puch and it is much more maneuverable than either the dk or the dreadnoughts. then, you can collapse all of your psycannons into a purgation squad that has astral aim, thus freeing your other gkps for cc where they belong. again, just a suggestion
