so, my friends fed up of losing all the time against my other armies, added to the fact that the WH range and fluff is prolly the coolest in the game, has made me want to make a 1k army, as they are more practical to play after school. Problem is, its the most expensive range money wise, and there are too many tempting things to get, both for good looks, and awsum game uses. FOr example the super cool looking sisters repentia who are absolutely garbage IMO. I just dont know what to take. Here are my ideas so far:
for troops i think two groups of 10 sisters w/ vs and 2x storm bolters in rhinos would do well, and 1 group of celestians, priests, and a cannones in a rhino for my main cc unit. Now, whats good to have for anti tank? The highest armor value id be going up against is 12 (falcons), so would 2 units of 6 retributers in immolaters be enough to give me anti infantry, and some rending power against these medium tanks? Or one exorcist? Also, and i doubt id have the points left over, whats the best support unit for my celestian squad? SO basically, to clear my questions up, whats the best heavy support and close combat support units i could take and be effective in a 1k army? Thanks guys! mwaaz!
Your basically asking us to write an army list for you!
any of the heavy options, accept the penitent engine, will provide great anti-tank or anti-infantry support. The orbital strike wont cost you any money, but it requires a lot of skill, thought and luck to use.
You seem to know how to play 40k fairly well since you claim to have a good track record. The rest should be pretty easy for you to do.
