Hey, at the moment i dont have a lot at all for my daemonhunters army, and im trying to decide on what to get to expand it.
Heres what i have:
Brother captain and 4 termie bodyguard(termie boxed set)
8 stormtroopers, 1 has flamer, 1 has meltagun(assault blisters are so bloody awkward)
Not a lot as you can see, just HQ and 2 troops. To expand it, i was thinking of getting 1 of each of the remaining FOC slots. Heres what i have in mind:
Elites- inq. and retinue(shooty)
Fast attack-not sure whether to get a GK squad, or another IST squad before them. Opinions?
Well thats what i was thinking of, but my main objective is to get a lot of models on the board asap, i dont want to be outnumbered too much.
Btw, how do armoured fist squads work? buy a box of cadians, heavy weapon platforms and a chimera?

Yep, AF is just that, get the vehicle/infantry box and a heavy weapon in it, also if you ant more troops in it take inducted guard as well, this also provides you with guard tanks like the russ
Make a list of a decent size. Then, once it's all critiqued and everything, look at what you have, then look on the list at what you need. Then, get what you need. I would suggest getting at least 1 more GK squad before another IST squad, they tend to be more versitile. As to your comment on the blisters, they carry the weapons that most people use, meltaguns and plasma guns and psycannons and extra GK and so forth. If you refuse to get them, you wont have a ver balanced army.
1500 years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the Universe
500 years ago everybody knew the world was flat
5 minutes ago you knew humans were alone on the planet
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow
Well if you want numbers, then it's another squad of IST (don't forget special weapons blister so you get a second Melta) and a Rhino and Chimera for them. Make your existing GKs Fast Attack.
After that, get an elite Inquisitor with PsyCannon with Mystic, 2 sages, 3 Servitors and an Eversor or Callidus.
BC & Retinue
IST w. Rhino & Meltas
IST w. Chimera & Plasma/Flamers/'nade Launchers
Thats looks pretty good quivering. To expand on that i might get a dread, that should bring it up to about 1000 pts.
@phoenix: i wasnt refusing to buy the special weapons troopers, i meant that the blisters are awkward cos you can never get whay you want in them, theres ALWAYS a nade launcher or a flamer in the ones i look at. I could just order 1 melta gunner and 2 plasma gunners off GWs site...
Thx for the replies guys, keep em comin plz.
