Hi everyone, Im BrotherCaptainAzrith, and I have one question...
Im just starting Daemonhunters, I have 1 squad of GK already done, and Im getting the stuff to finish the 500pt army tonight. However, I need to know one thing : Would an Inquisitor or Brother Captain serve me better in a 500pt?
Im not sure if Im doing a GK only army yet, but since my army at 500pt will be nearly all GK, I still have time to make up my mind.
I do know that an Inquistor is cheaper, has more wounds, and his retinue can give him pretty decent boosts (A sage + warrior gives him Brother Captain stats) to make him nearly as strong as a Brother Captain(BC), but would a BC be more effective in a 500pt army because he needs less Wargear to give him the same stats as a boosted Inquisitor.
Im leaning towards the Inquisitor particularly because it gives me more room for different fluff ideas, and I have more room to fit in less GK type units (I was thinking of inducing IG Armoured Fist squads), but I don't know if a BC would just be more effective for a 500pt army made up mostly of GK.
Any ideas? Any experience with the two different units in a 500pt battle? Any help would be great.
At 500 the Brother-Captain is a much better choice. An Inquisitor with the minimum three henchmen, even familiars, will costs more than a Brother-Captain. Once you give him equipment he'll be much more expensive. If you want the retinue to do anything other than die horribly, you'll be spending more points there. And really, with S and T 3 on the Inquisitor, the Brother-Captain is likely to do a lot more damage.
There's an angel on my shoulder, in my hand a sword of gold.
Hmmm, that is true. I think Im going to do Brother Captain. I was thinking of adding one later, but I think I may do a pure GK army now, and see how it works. If it doesn't go so well, I can always by the Inquistor later down the road. Thanks for the help!
yeah, go for the BC. Inquisitors aren't worth it unless you've got a lot of points and even then you should probably go for a GM.
I shall destroy all who stand in my way. The Emperor shall be reborn in me, the Primarchs shall be remade in me. I shall cast down the Dark Gods, the Star Gods shall be consumed just as they consumed their brothers. Those who fell shall be redeemed, those who remained pure shall be rewarded. The Imperium shall regain its power and the Dark Age of Technology will seem like nothing. For I am the Numen and I am coming
