Hi i am new to 40k, my friends just got me to start today and i decided on deamonhunters. I want a pure army of Deamonhunters and i was wondering if u guys could give me a list of a good combo of units so i can order them. Today i only purchased the 5 grey knight box so that is all i have. I would really appreciate it if you guys could point me in the right direction of a good starting PURE deamonhunters army =).
and if u don't mind, can u suggest a tournament size point army? thank ya =)
Erm, you should perhaps have some more GKs, as they are a core troop choice. I just started myself, but I think you need some Stormtroopers (the Kasrkin models are awesome for this), and perhaps a couple of Chimeras (transport veichles). And you do need a HQ, so some models would be needed there.
So.. More GKs, some Stormtroopers (go with Kasrkin models), perhaps some GK Terminators, a couple of Chimeras, perhaps a Dreadnought, and some HQ models.
I still lack the Chimeras and the Dreadnought myself though =/ . This was just my attempt to help a little =) .
Hope I did. Have fun collecting your Daemonhunter army =) .
depends on what u want to do?
if u want a small elite force = go with GK
if u want more men = use stormtroopers
assulting = GK's with stormtroopers in transprots and with teleport homers
defending = GK with psycannons to form purgatation squad of for men + stormtroopers without transport
anyhting else can be a mix
HQ is up to u - GK is better but Inquisitor can be equipped as u want so it is quite personal and can become very powerfull (but u can't get Dreadnoughts or LR)
hope u can decide
Where does it say you cant get dreadnought with inquisitor?
LOTS O GREY KNIGHTS
Page 32, upper left, its in a box and says Important Note.
Says that Land Raiders, Crusaders and Dreads may not be taken if a Grey Knight Hero isn't part of the force.
I usually take a inquistor with:
2 with heavy bolter
1 with plasma cannon
and maybe 1 Mystic
this is usually a pretty solid shooting part of ur army
And i take guards men, dont give em any upgrades, and stick them infront of any thing valuable like grey knights because ur oppenent cant shoot though ur friendly units
Can I jump in here and ask an additional (or meyhap totally different) question?
If one has, say, NO veichles. And are up against Tau or IG, in 1000pt battles.
What do you take? What tactics/deployment routines do you all have?
Currently I have a gkhero/inquisitor, 5 Termies, 1 BrotherCaptain, 10 GKs, 20 stormtroopers, callidus, and vindicare assassins.
Sorry fopr bothering, I just thought it might be needless to make another post about this, and it fitted under the topic here =) .
teleport in Slai (but u already know that )
Max, yeah I do... I was just trying to squeeze the last tips out of you people =P .
- Should I take plasmaguns for the Stormies? Why/why not? How many?
- Should I have 4 squads of 5 stormies or rather 2x10? Why?
- How do I deal with tanks, which the IG and perhaps the Tau have?
and so forth.
