Ok, I am going to college and needless to say i dont have room for my armies that i currently have. Now this will be my first year and im going into engineering so i doubt ill have much time. However i am sure that i will have some and i now have the funds to get a new army. O yeah graduation party with almost 150 people showing up.
So i have the deamon hunters codex (havent studied it) and i really like the Inquisitors. However i dont like the storm troopers (the hellgun is the biggest letdown. I mean it looks awsome thus it has an ap....... lol). I am also amazed how much firepower u can have in imperial guard troop section.
Thus i will play with iducted IG and i like the grey knights so what is your opinion should i use squad of the termis or a couple of the powerarmoured grey knights.
Yes i know i have to fill out the compulsory units but in your opinion what will be easier to master. I dont want any inducted sm or sisters the only power armour will belong to my grey knights and my inquisitor lord.
Thank u guys for all of your imput and a special thanks to Blood Blade I still have your tactica.
I suggest at least 20 GK's in any army of 1000+ points, they are BEASTS on the field. For inducted IG you can get out without taking any TLLC/ML dreads because of the heavy weapons, so missiles or lascannons=yes. Make your INQ shooty with 2 HB/1 PC, 2 sages.
Though unnumbered lurking perils await us, our blades will ever be ready.
FOR WE ARE THE EMPEROR'S VENGEANCE!
I would suggest that you leave out the ISTs, if you are using guard - you'll have the bodies you need from the guardsmen.
I assume you're running the Inq as HQ, in which case you need two squads of GK to fill the troop slots - for those, as I am sure many will tell you, you're best either taking a minimum sized squard with two psycannon, or full squads without upgrades.
As you have the guard already, I would not use the GK as fire support - they belong as your counter-charge and forward units, so take full size squads.
Given that you intend only to take the min of actual DH squads (at least, thats the impression I get), you might also consider going with a guard army with allied DH forces. That will allow you to still use the same forces, but you can jump one of the GK units to Fast Attack, giving you more options. This will require more investment into Guad forces,. HQ, etc, than you migth want, however.
Be aware, also, that if you want to use GK vehicles (land raider, LRC, deards) you must ahve a GK hero as an HQ.
I wouldn't let the ISTs go so easily; they're the only thing besides your Inquisitor that can take melta and plasma weapons. A small squad in a Rhino or Chimera can be really helpful.

Well all of your opinions are greatfully appreciated but it seems like u guys think I have my mind set on a specific armylist.
Truth is I dont really have a list in mind. This is what i made my decisions off. I proxyed a game with my bro and cousin (1 v 1 v 1 ) my guardsmen did awsome and the grey knights were great. My inquisitor was also steller to. So I planned on having an Inquisitor lord and a brother captain. Therfor i am also going to have a termi squad for the brother captain or at least the body guard. That means one of my troops are grey knights and another is storm troopers (i have to include the karshin models they look so sweet) Then one ig infatry platoon lascannons all around. That should leave me with a little points left to beef up the inquisitor and maybe an assassin. Who knows maybe even a battle tank.
But as i said that was just from one battle. I dont want any space marines other than grey knights. I like the grey knight terminator models and I like the inquisitors.
So basically the only requirements are guard infantry with lascannons Grey knight terminators and a cool inquisitor.
Again thanks for your imput and opinions

It will eventually be a full army by this i mean when i play a 2000 point battle i have some options or if i stretch it i can field a 2500 to 3000 point list.
I didn't plan on any of the dreads or support grey knights. The only ones i am intrested in the troop choice PAGK and the elite TAGK. I think 145 point grey knight hero is way to expenxive but i could understand using a grey knight brother captain with the retinue and maybe an elite Inquisitor. Either way I will still have the option of taking an assassin.

Right so to sum this up. I should have lots of grey knights they are monsters (funny cause they fight monsters). IG should be very shooty, where i get my lascannons and missle launchers.
My inquisitor should be shooty, makes sence they dont really have the profile to be a real cc monster.
And if i want to go outside the box with this army plan go with the storm troopers with either two melta or plasma gunns not one of both.
Thanks guys rep for u
