As the title says, im planning a 2K army with the usual stuff, PAGK:s, GK Termies, a Grandmaster and a bucketload of Stormtroopers in Rhinos.
But im squeezing the last 200ish points and want some comments:
- These points were originally reserved for my Inquisitor retinue
But since this is basicly my only "firebase" (non-moving shooty unit) it would be nice if they could claim objectives, You know the drill, park this unit on an objective in or close to my dfeployment then send the glory boys (grey knights) to capture the rest. Very Inquisitorial
SO, what i want is a TROOPS choice with firebase qualities, that will be joined by my Inquisitor with a Psycannon:
- 10-man Stormtrooper squad with 2xPlasmas. This would save me up points to add a Callidus or Eversor to the army, but they lack in long-range and survivabiilty.
- 5-man PAGK with 2x Psycannons. With the Inquisitor this would be a whopping 3 psycannons in one T4 power-armoured unit. They are however only 5 guys and a prime target for Killpoint scenarios.
- Inducted Imperial Guard infantry platoon. 25 guardsmen with 3 heavy weapons gives me options to capture more than one objective. Long Range firepower and plenty of bodies. Guardsmen die easy though and any flanking or deep-striking assault units would make shish kebab out of them.
So what do you guys think?
Could also get a reasonable amount of battle sisters for 200pts. 15 with a couple of upgrades plus ap1 boters once a game .
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
indeed PL, but im looking for a unit to park on deployment or turn 1 then spend the rest of the game sitting still shooting.
Sisters make for a horrible firebase IMHO. They lack the long-ranged hitting power for that (They are great at other stuff though).
I'd probably consider an Armored Fist squad over a IG platoon. it's kinda of hard to get a platoon with Heavy Weapons for 200pts
an Armored Fist, you get a 10 man squad, and a Chimera for easily under 200pts. Heck, Give em Lascannon and Plasma, and I think you're still under 200pts.
My favorite combo lately has been a Missile Launcher and Grenade launcher. new template and blast rules made these both a little better. The versatility is nice as well. either anti-tank rounds, or anti-infantry rounds. The Chimera is a nice Medium tank for throwing fire down range as well. You might even have the pts to add on a pintle mounted Heavy Stubber.
2xinfantry squads with missile launcher and plasma gun = 170
Command Squad with Missile Launcher = 55
Total of 225 points and thats something i can manage. But an armoured Fist isnt bad either, gives me a weapon platform in the Chimera. Too bad theyve ruled away that you can transport any units.
