this is my 2k allround army... i expect to play mostly uthwe and tyranis with this...
please tell me what you think about it
(4 term (3 normal, one with storm shield an hammer)
2x psy bolter)
not sure which one to take??? i cant make out the rules in the codex (as in st and ap)
thanx for the help and the comments,
Number One-this should be in army list section
Number Two- I think your squads are too small
Drop the psychic hoods and pick up Blessed upgrade for the dread instead. If you don't have any non-Grey Knights models psychic hoods are redundant as you already have The Aegis. Also, I'm pretty sure that justicars can take psychic powers such as holocaust, seeing as how they don't have the psyker special rule.
Also, this is nowhere near a 2000 points army. A full strength GK squad w/o any weapon upgrades costs 275pts. Since you're going to be adding at least one weapon lets just say 300pts for the sake of simplicity. So you could have four squads of 10 for 1200pts, leaving you with plenty of elbow room.
Ok man, Its kind of annoying when things dont have their proper names,like a cop with a donout stain.Originally Posted by Driazine
Rocket Launcher=Missle Launcher
Orbital Bombardment=Orbital Strike
sorry, but i have the german codex... not my fault that its mixed up. im pretty sure that there are uses for the different orbital strikes so.......
and are you telling me that the justicars cant take holocaust??
if so why not?
Sorry about being an ass, when I saw rocket launcher I snapped because its an ork weapon, or Rokkit LaunchaOriginally Posted by Driazine
Yes, Justicars cant take Holocaust, there counts as psykers yes but the use theirs psykerness to wield a power weapon, an it says no where in their description they may have psyhic abilities, GKTs can take scourging and GKHeros can take whatever they want
thanx for the help, also i have another question, my german codex has the price over the strength and the strength over the AP of the orbital STRIKE... i am assuming that the lance strike therefore has st 10 ap 1 not st 1 AP just got deleted and can be used seventy times (just to clarify)...
thanx for the help driazine
ps. would it help if i got rid of the hoods and made the GK into 3 units of 8 and give the HQ a guard?
1. The GK GM needs a bodyguard.
2. I would put one hood on a brother captain and call it good. LD 10 is LD 10, and BCs can't get picked out in cc.
3. if you could find points for another GK Dread, go for it, and use a Dread CCW and a Lascannon. TheDCCW will help kill some of the big boys in the nid group.
4. Extra armor and smoke on vehicles ALWAYS. Trust me on that.
Gimmers: GKT can't take scourging, try holocaust
I wouldn't worry about vehicles too much. The eldar player may like wraithlords, and anti tank won't help you too much vs those.
One special weapon per GK squad please. Otherwise, a purgation squad may be a good idea (fun too for eating up nids and seer councils.
Where's your Baritone Saxophone?
The thing you have to remember is that when you say "all-around" army you mean you would take it into a tourney not know who you would go against or what scenarios you play.
But you seem to be tailoring your army against swarms (indicated by your loading up on Holocaust). If you went against a heavy armor side (e.g. IG) you might have problems.
-Agreed, your termie squads are too small. Raise them to 6 total.
-Yes, Blessed/Smoke/Extra Armor is necessary (well, maybe not Blessed but for 10 pts you should find the points somewhere).
-One dread should have Lascannon + something. 2nd maybe have Autocannon + something.
-With 2000 pts you can afford to fit in a LRC in there if you want to.
-Orbital is nice but really it's only a 1 trick pony. I'd rather have a dreadnought than that in terms of comparable points.
thanx for all the help
ill be posting an updated list tomorrow (promise)
