i love the demon hunter army. but i dont like their story. so i intend to make a rebel army that has broken off from the whole and has become there own faction. they will be painted dark colors and will hunt humans instead of demons. demons will be their allies. so is this change in story acceptable..?
Grey knights do not go bad. It's that simple. No grey knight in the history of the Imperium, despite having the most contact with chaos, has ever fallen. There is likely some unknown quality about them which protects them from the influence of chaos.
Inquisitors, on the other hand, do go bad. So it could be feasable to field a chaotic inquisitor. Statwise, though, you can't mix lists, so the only daemons you could have would be daemonhosts (make them unbound daemonhosts if you want to stress the chaos element.)
If you want chaotic guys in power armour with daemons, play chaos marines. Or add space marines to a radical inquisitor army and say they're a rogue chapter.
Truthfully? No. GW has stated more than once that GK CANNOT go renegade or become corrupt or whatever.
Now, if you're making an army that isn't GK at all, just uses GK models, that's fine. But you can't say they USED to be GK or they're formed from RENEGADE GK or anything like that. Like how people use Lost & Damned lists to build Genestealer cults or Mechanicus armies, things like that.
Well, the first post didn't say GK anywhere, so I assumed that he meant an Inquisitor and his personal army or some such going rebel. If that's what was intended, then there is no reason it couldn't be done (and if your opponents consented, you could probably even take deamons and such, though that would be very very far from Chapter Approved).
if i were to make a rebel daemonhunter army, what do you think it would be comprised of. obviuosly no gk's. but what..?
I'd say an Inquisitor Lord, probably CC-oriented, for your HQ. Daemonhosts, definitely three of those. Death Cultists if you like them. Probably no Officio Assassinorum operatives, as they're harder to corrupt fluff-wise, but it has been done, so that's your call. 2-4 squads of IST, and I'd say it's almost required for you to give all of them Transports, considering the lack of heavy weapons and armor. Probably Chimeras, since for only 30pts more you get TWO heavy weapons.
My concept of radical Daemonhunters like this always includes inducted IG. They're cheap, they've got the heavy weapons, numbers, and armor that a DH list lacks, and they're easily corruptable. If you do use them, 1-2 Armored Fist squads are nice (10 men, 1 heavy and 1 special weapon, and a Chimera with two more heavy weapons, all for under 200pts!). Infantry Platoons are great just for the sheer numbers they bring. If you get at least two IG troops choices (platoon or Fist), definitely get yourself a Leman Russ and a squad of 3 Sentinels!
Inquisitor, Inquisitor Lord, Deathcult Assassins, Deamonhosts, Stormtroopers, and allied IG (to get a Leman Russ). Pretty much everything except GK or SM allies. Also, you could use the Codex: Assassins fluff to justify taking an Imperial Temple Assassin if you want.
Deathcult and Deamonhosts seem most in keeping with the idea, though.
gonna attempt to create a future possible radical DH list. comments (particularly from megalo. :p) would be nice.
Hq - Inq. Lord w/ Daemonhammer, bolt pistol & Halocaust spell.
Retinue of 3 acolytes with storm shields & 3 combat servitors w/ power fists and CCW
All in a chimera w/ Multi-laser and Heavy Bolter
Elite - 3 Daemonhosts
- 2 Death Cult Assassins
Troops - 10 Stormtroopers w/ 2 Plasma Guns in Rhino
- 10 Stormtroopers w/ 2 Melta Guns (or Grenade Launchers, depending on army i face) in
- 2x10 Armored Fist Squads w/ Missile Launcher & Grenade Launcher in Chimeras
w/ Multi Laser and Heavy Bolter
Heavy - Lemun Russ w/ Battlecannon & 2 Heavy Bolters
I was gonna add in Sentinels w/ 2 autocannons and 1 lascannon, but the HQ really needed that transport, or he was gonna run into a hail of gunfire and lose his retinue.
Ummm.....kill humans........use deamons.....
they are called Chaos, duh.
PROUD TO BE IN THE BRITISH ARMY.
