A friend of mine picked up deamon hunters a month or two ago and doesnt fare the best with them. He fields two inquistors a cullidis assassian(the one with the nural shredder) 10 storm troopers and two squads of 5 grey knights in 1000 points. only game he was close to winning was Vs Choas. Any tips on what he is doing wroung?

Well, for one thing he takes 2 inquisitors. What a waste, especially in a puritan army like he has. He should be using a retinue with his inquisitor if he wants to use one. And also in 1,000 pts, the assassin is probably points better spent elsewhere. He also has no anti tank capability unless he gives meltabombs to justicars, so in many games, he will simply be unable to win period. He should be using nearly twice as many grey knights. Here is a list which might better suit hyim.Originally Posted by Mcdohl
Inquyisitor lord with plasma cannon.
3 warriors with multimeltas
2 /w plasma guns
2/w plasma guns
10 Grey Knights
10 Grey knights
TLLC and missile launcher
A nice amount of anti 3+ save weapons and also 20 Gk for a very good CC kick. If you want you can also use the points from the dreadnought elsewhere and give the grey knight justicars meltabombs, always a good idea. Against horde armies that have bad saves, replace the inquisitors retinue with heavy bolter servitors.
[CC list(my favorite)]
GK Brother captain
4 Grey knight terminators
Eversor assassin/callidus assassin
(i prefer eversor)
9 Grey Knights
meltabombs on justicar
10 Grey Knights
meltabombs on justicar
993 pts/ 1018 pts

The second list is illegal
@JuliusGaiusCaesar: Yup, you can't take the Assassin unless you have an inquisitor.
@Mcdohl: We need more info in general:
1] More specifics about his army and how he plays them.
2] More specifics about who he faces and why he loses.
So until you can give us that, were shootying in the dark with only a candle to guide us.
But generally he might be concentrating too much n one faset of 40k warfare (CC/shooty ect ect) and can't cope with a well balanced list?
Alright, sorry about the mistake. I've edited the post to avoid confusion.
Also, in the first list, the Inquisitor Lord has a plasma Cannon. They aren't in the armory, only as options on the servitors. The inquisitor Lord should have a psycannon.
The only other viable options for a shooty inq would be
Bolter (not in the armoury, but added in a Faq)
and none of those are good. (perhaps there's a stormbolter in the armoury too, can't remember, but you really should pick upp the psycannon)
Plasma guns, meltaguns, multimeltas etc aren't in the armoury. Imagine if those weapons could be given to anyone with acces to the armoury... Yummy!
a couple of problems, the army is slow save for the assassin. Tell him take a shooty inquisitor lord as described above and to drop an inquisitor.
Thats all for the general stuff, do have an idea y he is losing?
"Heresy is like a garden weed, it won't stop feeding until you... BURN THE WHOLE DAMN GARDEN WITH A FLAMER, BURN IT, BURN IT TO HELL!!!!!" "Is there a wittle puppy in the garden? ITS A DAEMON! BURN IT!"
im the friend that mcdohl was speaking of and i wanted to clarify a couple things
the reason my list is the way it is would be that im trying to conserve money. i havent spent that much yet(not gonna count). that said my list is delveoped around that. now for some clarifcations as to my list. i use 5 gk as fagk, and that works well when they dont scatter 11" off target, otherwise, not so much. the only other descrepancy is that i also use a DCA.
so far ive played i think 7 games and ive 2 won of em for sure. three of the games i lost, i was playing 200 pts short because of a math error i made(when your in ap calc, you forget how to do simple math). and you couldnt even tell because in those 3 games, i came pretty close to winning(my callidus has a rep of becoming invincible for awhile). since adding these points back in, the two games ive lost were oh so close. in one game even i blew up a dreadnought with a cleverly manuvered plasma pistol shot in the back. the other game was a tactical. my oppenent bested my with highly clever moves. as clever as mine are, he managed to squeeze out a win(he was necrons and was 6 away from phase out aka a good cc round, which the dice denied me)
so now maybe you guys can help me more now that your better informed
btw 1st post woot :cool:
