Welcome to Librarium Online!
Sup guys I have played 40k for a little while now and I recently got a GK army for a nice change. (I played IG) I'm having alittle trouble doing more than tieing people I would like to hear some thoughts on my list I will be providing. And some general Strats. I have read the tatica but I didn't find it amasingly helpful I hope to play them in tournaments and I want a well rounded army that can fight well against just about anything. As any tournament list should. But here is the list I currently fight with.
-1 Grand Master w/ Nemisis force and Holocaust, Psycannon and MC weapon.
-5 Squads of GKs 30 in all
1 Squad of 9
1 Sqaud of 6 (these two go in landraiders the 9 one with GM)
2 Squads of 5 Each with an Incinerator
-2 Land Raiders both with dozer blades and Psycannon Bolts
-1 GK dreadnaught with Assault Cannon and Incinerator.
General Strat I use is alot of sitting back letting the opponent come to me then bout half way across the field I charge with my LR with the GM and 9 Gks in it. On the upside its definatly a troop heavy list for the 5th edition which I've been playing for bout a month and a half now (I work at a store that got it early) I have been beat out with this list more than once. Idk if its being too overzealous or waiting to long to attack. I have tried both haha. It's a good list over all but Idk what to do with it I was considering dropping a GK squad and the GM for a CM and another Dreadnaught. And maybe a Inquisator or try to fit a 3rd dreadnaught or something. Maybe some termies.
I find myself being out gunned and out closecombated by alot. Almost everything. Any help would be cool.

While i support both the use of landraiders and your Troop choices, a requirement in 5th. You dont seem to be using them to their potential. A 5 man squad with an incinerater isent gonna do anything if your footslogging it. If you are a fan of 5 man squads psycannons are the way to go so that way your not wasting dakka while your enemy comes at you.
Somthing i would do in this however is make a retinue of termies for the GM (since it helps the close combat surviability) and if anything deep strike them. Have a setup of your 2 LRs and a group of PAGK in each with your incineraters(for tank shocking goodness ) and then mabie 2 small squads of "mini purgation" squads, though im not a big fan of small groups in 5th.
The dread is an option if your feel that a CC dread is what you need but in a list full of flamers, i think the bigger worry is armor comming at you.
I hear everyword of what your sayin man. I really want to get more Psycannons this list is rly more designed around what came in my boxes haha. I plan to be making bigger squads then making the Dreadnaught hellfire with missle. Then drop a squad of GKs and add some termies. I was thinkin maybe a Inqusitor too. Just cuz I got a badass model haha.
I rly like incinerators for many differeent situations and I plan to be using them later as part of sqauds in the landraiders. I want to get more Psycannons though definatly and possibly bump to either 2 long range dreads or 1 and an inquistor have like a double threat thing. Either go for the Inquisitor in the LR or the CM in the other know what I mean? They were gonna be my main form of assault on heavy squads.
The Dreadnuaght was just in there as CC for fun but the thing is without Deepsrtrike he never makes iit there. I will definatly use your advise.
