Hey guys. I'm new to the whole Daeomonhunters scene, and not really an experienced Warhammer player. Anyways, I was wondering what advice you could give a guy like me and could you answer a few questions.
So far, I have 6 Grey Knights, 2 Justicars, 2 GK's with Incinerator and 1 GK with Psycannon, 1 Inquistor, 2 familiars, 1 Hierophant, 1 Mystic and 1 Sage. Oh and I also have an Imperial Guard army.
What advice would you give to get me to a 500pt army? What should my next purchase be?
And here are my questions :
If you want to Deep-Strike GK's, is it still counted as a troop choice? And is it worth Deep-Striking them?
What is the best Retinue for an army?
What is the best sort of Heavy Support?
Well thats all I can think of for the moment, I just want to get a 500pt Daemonhunter army only, with no Space Marines or IG's, just for the moment at least.
Thanks for the help.
When you DS them, they count as Fast Attack choices, NOT as Troop choices (the codex clearly states that on the sidebar next to the Troop GK entry). And it *can* be worth DSing them, depending on what you do next.If you want to Deep-Strike GK's, is it still counted as a troop choice? And is it worth Deep-Striking them?You have to decide if you want a shooty or assault Inquisitor/Lord first. I suggest *never* using an assault one - too fragile and too expensive. A shooty Inq unit can be geared for anti-infantry or anti-tank, whichever you like. Here's the basic versions of each that most folks use:What is the best Retinue for an army?
Inq (psycannon, auspex)
2 Heavy Bolter servitors
1 Plasma Cannon servitor
Inq (melta-bombs and/or combi-melta)
2-3 Multi-Melta servitors
Rhino transportThat depends completely on the rest of your army. If you have a GK Hero (ie, a GK HQ choice) you can take GK Dreadnoughts and Land Raider/LRC's - they're expensive, but some people like 'em. If you have IG or SM allies, you can use *some* of their Heavy choices (there's a list at the end of the army list in the DH codex). Stormtroopers can take meltaguns. Inquisitor units, like the anti-tank one above, can take multi-meltas. The only things I'd say NOT to use are a) orbital strikes (they're too iffy, and not very good at armor hunting) and b) Land Raider/LRC's (too expensive in games under 2000pts, and despite AV14, only one hit is needed to kill 'em).What is the best sort of Heavy Support?
