Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hey I'm almost brand new to Daemonhunters so I bought the codex and made a small army which I hope will help make up the base of the army. Also I am really interested in a Pure Grey Knight army for fluff and the fantastic models. So here it goes
HQ - 199
Brother captain with a retinue of 3 terminators
Troops - 385
Heavy Support - 165
Total - 749

Terminators in anything less than 1500 points is a waste, IMO. If I were you, I'd give the BC a Psycannon and have him slog it alone. With the spare points, I'd suggest beefing up your two other GK squads, or even getting a third one if you can spare the points. Also, the Psycannons may not be worth it in your line squads; you may be better off running another GK per Psycannon. Pure GK armies tend to do best when they field the most Grey Knights, in my experiences.
Um dreadnoughts can not have 2 main weapons and even if they could the lascannon and assault cannon are not a good match.Dreadnought
You should do the following build for your dreadnought.
- twin-linked lascannon, missle launcher, extra armor = 145 points
- You must set fire to water or you will be extinguished.
In 750 points, as there aren't too many heavy armors, You should use the AC+CCW+extra a.+smoke buildup for just 118 points.
Also I just like the idea of terminators in low point battles, as they can survive lots of shooting apart from plasmas. Also from the spare points from the dreadnought buy them 1-2 psycannons, as they can always shoot up to 36". Also if You can, forget the psycannon and the incinerator on the GK's, they are not needed.
I have to agree with Lost Nemesis. Terminators are over kill and the points used on the special weapons in the line squads might be better spent on troops.
The BC w/ psycannon is definately the way to go also.
As far as the Dred is concerned, I think that you could get away with the cheap AC/DCCW variety at this points level (Maybe not for long with the new rending rule... we'll see).
Anyway, you could even put two AC/DCCW dreds on the field if you drop the Termies and the special weapons. Get a couple of 7man PAGK squads and a few extras like EA?, smoke?, melta bombs?.
Just my two cents.
It's worth a krak!
