    1000 pt Standard army (crit)

    Hi everyone!

    Its been awhile since I've posted on this forum but I've been reading the posts avidly for the witch hunters section. I thought it was time for abit of change from my chaos army and decided to start 2 more armys, the first being an Order of the Argent Shroud (Witch Hunters) simple battle force and the other being a combat-oriented blood angels army (may post in SM section later).
    I was wondering if the members of this board could have a look at my list and recommend any changes. I have looked through the tactica and most of the posts, coming up with this:

    HQ
    Canoness + jump pack + evis + book of St. L + bolt pistol (96)

    Troops
    Battle sisters squad
    10 sisters inc. vss + flamer + Hv. Flamer + rhino (192)

    Troops
    Battle sisters squad
    10 sisters inc. vss + flamer + Hv. Flamer + rhino (192)

    Fast Attack
    Seraphim squad
    5 seraphim inc. vss + flamer (127)

    Fast Attack
    Seraphim squad
    5 seraphim inc. vss + inferno (134)

    Heavy Support
    Retributor squad
    7 retributors inc. 3 Hvy. bolters (122)

    Heavy Support
    Exorcist (135)

    Total = 998 No. of starting faith points = 6

    Let the criticising commence!

    oh boy that cannoness. if you plan her to tank hunt she is good. if you plan for her to kill models and infantry then go with a blessed weapon. hitting at I 1 is a bad idea for almost every one. unless your I is already lower.

    I feel like that fast attack is just going to get torn up. i would drop the squad with the flamers (you already have super flamer abbillitys from the rhino squads.) move the cannoness around with the infero squads. use the extra points to get a total of 11 Retubutors (for the best effenciancy in faith rolling) and 4 heavy bolters.

    Veary lastly. the sub topic above is for army lists

    Sorry about that, I didn't see the sub-topic above the lists, is it possible for a mod to move the topic?


    Heres a revised list based on what you said:

    HQ
    Canoness + jump pack + blessed wpn + Cloak + Inf. pistol ( 130 )

    Troops
    Battle sisters squad
    10 sisters inc. vss + flamer + Hv. Flamer + rhino w/ Ex. armor & Smk Launchers ( 200 )

    Troops
    Battle sisters squad
    10 sisters inc. vss + flamer + Hv. Flamer + rhino w/ Ex. armor & Smk Launchers ( 200 )

    Fast Attack
    Seraphim squad
    5 seraphim inc. vss w/brazier + inferno + Flame( 151 )

    Heavy Support
    Retributor squad
    10 retributors inc. 4 Hvy. bolters ( 184 )

    Heavy Support
    Exorcist ( 135 )

    Total = 1000 No. of starting faith points = 5

    Cheers!

    Now that is looking like a mean list. just remember to stick that cannoness with the other jump pack squads to increase her life span. then it turns the sera's into a problem rather then a nucence.

    I think your list looks fluffy and I hope you have fun playing it.

    Drop the retributor squad size down to 8 and 4 heavy bolter (VSS of course ) and grab an eviscerator for your seraphim and drop the brazier. The VSS for the retributor squad is much more important to get that extra faith point.

    personaly you need to have that ret squad number as high as possable.

    with 8 rets you have a 27% failure rate for the faith points. compared to the 8% with 10 and 2% with 11. im a reserved player. unless im having faith point diarea. i tend to not waste 5 faith points before anything faithful dies. and reducing the chaince my 12 heavy bolter shots will have rending by almost 20% for an extra faith point. not good

    I think you need to swap out the Retri squad for another Sister squad, depending on you play style. Often, mech sisters tend to block good firelanes and make retributors redundant.

    You're forgetting that without a VSS the retributor squad is not faithful and can't use acts of faith at all.

    You should'nt be using faith on retributors, the heavy bolter can handle its self save it for the bolters and flamers.
